This bird is going to be my primary ride in both IL2FB aces and Pacific Fighters. I cant wait to be a sneaky little b@stard and sneak behind enemy lines raiding airbases, blowing up stuff with the 75m and leaving death and destruction in my wake. What kind of bombs and torpedos do the different variants have and how are dammage and flight models. S~ and thanks in advance.

The current B-25 flyable does not have a 75mm cannon, it has a glass nose with a bombsight... sorry http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

Please tell me that the thing has at least a tail gunner and two waist gunners. Otherwise that I can live without having the big guns in the snout. And can it carry a torp???

I see you're against violence, mmmm? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif Sorry, lad, they gave us a B-25, not the Death Star. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Anyway, if we meet online, I'll find you. I just have to follow a wake of "blown stuff" plus "death and destruction"... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

You might want to fly the A-20G or beufighter then. Great heavy fighter/medium bombers.

I'm a veteran of online FB with all of two weeks experience, and I love flying the He-111 on the quasi-Pacific servers, torpedoing the ships, and trying to vulch the enemy airbase from 18000feet with the sc1800 bombs. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Without much success I might add. So I greatly look forward to this B-25 and A-20 so that I might continue the good work of delivering heavy munitions right to your breakfast table on the Full Real servers.

Is it true the B-25 uses the same bombsight as the He-111 from IL2FB? I thought the B-25J used the Norden. But I can understand if they had to use the He-111's bombsight as it might have consumed a bit of their time to work on another bombsight for just one plane =/

NM, I think my question is answered in the Screenshots thread.
