Not having actually bought FB yet (having too much fun with IL2), I have a simple question:

In the bombers, can players man any of the slots in the plane in co-op? I mean, if you're online with 5 or 6 poeple, can you all jump in one plane, each guy at a different gunner position, plus bomber & pilot?

I have no idea how many slots are in each plane. And, how many flyable bombers are there? Just the HE-111 and the TB-3?

Only two versions of the He-111 and the TB-3 are flyable in the game now. All the slots are available for the player. except the co-pilot place. (but who needs that place?) That includes, all gunners positions and the Bombers position. You can also aim the bombs yourself by setting the bombsight to the correct altitude and speed.

You can posess all positions of the bomber in a Coop but, there was a catch, i dunno what it was. All places are accesable via the C key, wich cycles trough the various stations. You can set the AI for each place on and off. You can also assign buttons to each place seperatly in the menu.

Anyways, if you want to aim bombs yourself, you should defenitly watch the training video's. Start with the TB-3.

Very cool... Actually, I'm not looking to aim bombs myself, althought that sounds fun... but I was thinking getting a bunch of people all up in the same bomber might be pretty fun. I know most in here would rather be at the controls of a plane rather than sitting at a gunners slot, but it seems like it might be fun anyway.

I could imagine a full bomber with no AI, and a handful of fighters riding escort... might be a cool co-op. Anyone tried this?

Yes, we've tried it with few guys with Teamspeak communications and it is very cool indeed. It is hilarious when the shooting starts and everyone is panicking. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hehe... that's exactly what I'm talking about, Jippo. I hang with a bunch of whacky people that would be hysterical in a scene like that. I just gotta get them up there!

Manning a slow and vulnerable bomber with several people and trying to complete a mission is thrilling to say the least.
Especialy the numerous calling out of fighters by the gunners make those flights exciting.

Getting shot down by a fighter is less funny ofcourse, except for the fighter pilot who brings down several people at once with only one aircraft kill. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey Blind I am also only flying IL2, and I was wondering when are you online. I would like to engage in an online coop, but there are only a few people on when I am. I would like to fly with you sometime.

FYI:

you can fly 2 man IL2 and Stuka as well if they have a rear gunner.

B.E.L.B.H.D.: I'm usually on weekend nights after 10pm (EST). I don't get a whole lot of online time these days, but I try and squeeze in some. But, right now I'm completely offline because I had to send my flight stick back to the manufacturer to get replaced. Pitch was slipping on it >B\
