I just wanted to say thanks to all the players who fly bombers online on dogfight servers. I try to mix it up myself and fly both fighters and bombers. But I think its really nice to all you bomber pilots to say thanks and give a big salute. You guys really are providing a non-selfish service to the community and it's because of you that a lot of online missions are interesting and fun.

Thanks

Yeah i love to serve as a big piece of meet! and thank you for appreciating it :P

No to be a little more serious, i love to fly bombers i just love the trill i am getting when i am sitting behind my monitor leaning over the cross hears and trying to maintain a straight flightpath with that spitfire behind me, and to top it off getting a perfect bombing run, and then lighting up that spit with my rear mg's is just a awesome feeling http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

But truth be told i don't survive that long in the skies, without other bombers and fighter cover it feels hopeless sometimes even ridiculous even.. when fighters notice me they drop everything just to get me down in flames, and as i am the only bomber on the server you can imagine what happens next, the stone age brain just kicks in on those guys and they are like starving wolfs on a maimed deer.. it gets quite messy quite fast http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

No! quit that air quake mentality and fly bombers and escort guys and girls and that pronto!

I love flying bombers, but I get the same problem of being the only one on the server doing so, and it takes a lot of the fun out of it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Is there any way to make Bot bombers? That would really be nice if you could insert like 4 or 6 bombers running on AI in a server. Or that could be a mission objective with a time limit. Sort of like counter strike.

I dont know, I don't really check these types of events and things like that, I prefer just playing when I feel like it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanx mate, we (SvAF consisting of squadrons F19VS and F16VS) fly bombers quite a lot... a healthy mix... but we never fly them for non-selfish reasons... we just love to fly 'em close formation http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

S!

I'm a bomber pilot, and i fly bomber because it's fun like hell http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif . One time i fly three Pe-8 sortie in AAA, drop the 5000 FAB bomb at Blue air base and got five or six kill per sortie. The bomb is quite destructive, i remember very clearly that when it exploded, a Blue P-39 and even some Red(friendly) guys flying nearby at about 1000 m exploded too or heavily damagedhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif .

Sorry for my bad English.

Not in a dogfight server, but any aircraft not chosen by a human pilot in a coop server will be flown by the server as AI.

I almost always fly bomber, enething whit a bombsight. I actely like flying alone, because then I am harder to spot. Also not many other have the patience to fly a heavy to 4000m+. I actely find the Dogfight servers to be the best place to fly high alt level bombing, becase the fights usaly are verly close to the ground :P . I usaly get 2-5 kills without being killed.

I'm a bomber as well, BUT only in Coops where I'm sure to have company, even if its only "Artificial Ivan". At least they give them something other than moi to shoot at.

I fly bombers because they're often the best way to get the job done. Actually I am statistically more likely to survive a sortie in my Ju-88 than in my Fw-190, because I only make one pass with the Ju-88 and almost invariably attack from high altitude, and as Grinder says, the skies are often empty up there.

I'm generally quite a bit higher than 4 km though. In fact, I've bombed from 10 km with the A-20C; the limiting factor in that case being target draw distance rather than aircraft performance!

The draw distance realy are a big problem, even at 4000m. I find 4-5km to be a good compromise, between safty and abilety to see the ground. And nothing better then a enemy fighter trying to catch up to me from lower altitude http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

im a bomber as well, i find it easier. just set a bomb delay of 2-3 secs, fly low, and drop the bombs twice as early as you think you should.

its always better flying with other bombers out there, and underestimated bombers are always fun to watch (i took down 3 109's in one dogfight in a B-17 coz they thought i was an easy target)

the thrill of hitting the target with a big formation is just awesome.

once i lead about 7 bombers to the enemy base flying at 4000 meters... it was raining bombs http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I love sinking carriers from high alt in my Betty, especially with some Corsairs freshly spawned on deck.

Can you hit anything from orbit?
