B25 as well. Much more versatile than the B17.

09-27-2004, 01:21 PM
Until we have 1000+km maps, B-25

09-27-2004, 01:41 PM
I'm greedy...BOTH of them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

And that's only because of flying B17 Flying Fortress for 3 years, and not being able to fly it online. The B25 will be cool too and if that's the only one of the 2 we get, so be it.

Actually, I'll take whatever they give us....cause that's what we'll get. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

B-25. It was everywhere in every theater including the Soviet. It was both a high level and a close ground attack plane. A real jack of all trades.

LOL Korolov if the b-26 few as good as it looked it would be hell. I rather fly the 25 online because the nature of online flying. The b-17 would be better offline with time compression http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif . Could we get the toyko raiders bomb site for online lol http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=1131054422 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Nor the B-26...I'll take an A-26 Invader, please!...the straffer with the gun nose, at that

Definitely the B-25 versions over the B-17.

09-27-2004, 05:51 PM
I'd love the B-17 first off (points at sig) but considering the size of the maps for IL2, I'd have to go with the B-25.

lets not forget the politically correct and officially harmless "RB26" conducting innocent "armed reconnaisance" missions for the CIA in the early 60's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think the B-26 is an AWESOME bird.

If I EVER win a big LOTTO, I'll own an ON-Mark converted A-26. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Oh, it flew as good as it looked alright - just that it took a lot of time to get it to fly that good!

I take the both but i really want to see a B-17 give close air support lol http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

More practical in game to have the B25 but I prefer the B17.

Or B24

Or best of all, B29

I would like to fly the B-25, fast agile and can carry quite a load. I would really like to fly the B-24 Liberator.

Reason is simple...we already have now 2-HE111's and one BF110.....I myself would love to see all the AI 2 engine planes here made flyable as most here DO NOT fly the big ones realistically.

Ever have to dogfight a HE111 that is using J8 manuevers?.....Well, that can be livable, yet would soon be B17's, PE8's, Lancasters etc. if we had them. Heck as it goes it is almost impossible to get a bunch together to fill 1 HE111 for fun against fighters....How are you gonna fill B17's?

I'd like to see the 2 engined ones all flyable here..............Then the 4.

B25, I always had a "thing" for them

09-28-2004, 11:15 AM
The 25 will be great fun from PF on, but, given the choice, I would take the 17 over anything.

I'll be happy with any multi-engine bombers we get.

09-28-2004, 03:13 PM
well I would like to pound some land targets such as bridge heads and rail yards, some tanks.Maybe take out a Dam or something.then jump to the top turret gunner and get me some 109's or a Zero.

Oleg you gotta do this one?

09-28-2004, 05:06 PM
I'd take the B-17 - apparently the B25 had a nasty habit of wings collapsing at the root and folding back onto the plane and other wing due to the high wing setup, resulting in an immediate and fatal spin (for those on board). The personnel inside would be trapped due to the high G centrifugal force. :O
