looooong argued debate.

probably wont ever be done with the IL-2 engine. maybe 3 to 5 years after BoB is released. im trying to be patient. need another fortress game.

I would definitely like more heavy bombers, floatplanes and torpedo-bombers in this game.

I would certainly like to have them properly flyable in-game, but I'll not cry for lack of them. Zerstorers, strike aircraft, and tactical and light bombers, are much more interesting.

Anyway, I have the A-20 and Bf-110 - so I'm already as happy as a pig in sh*t.

I'm with ash on this one. I much prefer light bombers and tactical/strike planes than big lumbering beasts. Still, maybe 1 or 2 heavies max will be great, say a Lancaster or B17 for Europe, Emily or other heavy (dunno much about Japanese planes) for the pacific. But if bombers are implemented, they shouldn't be ETO biased.

As we do not have the maps to do the heavy bombers justice. I think they would be a waste of resourses.

I mean you could takeoff in your B29 from Iwo Jima. But where would you go?

You have a good point! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The H8K1 Emily would be a very welcome addition to the Pacific theater. It's ability to carry topredos or bombs and it's heavy defensive armament would be nice to have, both online and off.

It would be fun to re-create the little known night bombing raid of March 4~5 1942 on Honolulu.

The Emily was the best flying boat of WW2, I wish it were flyable.

Yeah, it is a real beauty. Reminds me a lot of the Sunderland (or is it Sutherland?), thats another real beauty that I'd like to have. The Condor would be cool to fly too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

map size has little to do with it ..REALLY. they are large enuff, at least the mid to large ones.

everybody uses the excuse of map size. it gets old.

most bombers are slower than any prop fighter. if your going so much faster in a fighter..how come nobody ever complains about the map being to small for the fighters speed to distance. all i ever hear about is "maaan.. i gotta fly 5 minutes to look for a fight!"

us hardcore bomber types dont take a "B"line strait to target..thats instant death. we have our tactics to get to 9K alt, and remain relatively intact. (besides, we enjoy the ride)

time for some hours put into construction of making HEAVIES flyable.

bah, I'd still like a B24 atleast. gimme gimme gimme.
