I would love to see the gunner seats playable in multiplayer adversarial on line play. It would make it much more realistic when level bombing a target

Not on dogfight servers, unfortunately. Just a little too difficult to implement, considering that planes are selected and re-flown dynamically, inside the game.

Try some of the rare co-op servers, though. When flying in the co-op game mode, you select your plane and position prior to the mission - so, for example, you could select the pilot position and your buddy could select the rear-gunner position. In large bombers, such as the heinkel 111, I think only the pilot can change positions with 'c' - so if you have one friend flying rear gunner, he's stuck there while the pilot can change between the other positions.

What would be helpful, is if one could be the bombardier while the other is the pilot.

Whenever I am trying to level bomb, I can never get the trim exactly on.... at some point when I am the bombardier the aircraft always turns that tiny bit too far and throws out the aimer....

In a DF server you can level stabilize the bomber and man a gunner position.

In COOP you can have multiple crews. The pilot can switch to bombardier position and the gunners can switch to any of the open gunner stations.
