Now I've flown the Pe-2 for a long while now, but just for a change of pace jumped into a Mitchell earlier today @ ZvsW... and holee c**p but that lil' ol' bomber ROCKS!!! I mean, what's not to like? You've got a sizable payload, the defensive armament is just excellent, flies like a dream and is sturdy as hell! I repeat, what's NOT to like???

And the same thing goes for the Havoc too. Had a wee coop training session w/ the CO after that gig, and took the A-20 this time. Yeaaah... how FAST that bird is, eh? And carries quite a load, too! What a great tactical ground attack AC, that one!

So thx ye Yanks for those great birds... Us callous servants of the Politbureau sure appreciate http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hellll no. I love all 3 birds mate, the A-20 is an underrated gem in this sim, love both versions.

The A20 is an incredibly fun plane to fly and fight in. Its like a twin engined P47 with defensive guns. Whats not good about that?!

The A20 OWNS the sky in mid war pacfic theatre. Very frustrating flying a zero and seeing the A-20 just walk away in a shallow dive or keep enough speed in a cruise that you just can't gain without getting shot up by the gunner. The Tony can catch em, but doesn't have the firepower to bring them down. A well flown A-20 is almost untouchable in those scenarios.

Even in early western theatres, the A-20 can prove a nasty suprise for the novice axis pilot. If you keep the fuel and bomb load light, it actually makes quite an impressive heavy fighter on some maps, especially as the opposition rarely expect it to be used in such a manner.
