Now that the B-17 seems to be in the first add-on, wouldn't it be nice to have the Fw190A8/R8 Rammjaeger version for the German side for defending the [virtual] fatherland?

I am not a Fw flyer, nor a fan [I rather try to shoot them out of the skyhttp://forums.ubi.com/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
], but this up-armoured Butcherbird would be an interesting and historically important addition to FB, now that the [first of several?] Allied bombers are being added to FB. And it makes a change to the current trend to add 'what-if' Gotha's and power-eggs to the game.

So what do you guys [and girls] say?

Maybe a MODELLED extra-armor for the A-8/R2 would also not be too bad /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

When once you have tasted flight,
you will always walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward;
to where you have been
and to where you always want to return.

Useless ! Not want to sound rude but what then ? you lift off and ramm the enemy. Then bail and refly ?
Isn't that a bit nonsense ?

Shouldn't be 2 x 30mm cannons more effective ?
Besides what's the use of this plane. If the game would take into account that producing a B-17 was more expensive and took more crew than one fighter than this would be ok from a strategists point of view, but as STRATEGY as such isn't a factor in the game (if ignoring the Great FB-Demon) than a RAMMJ”ěGER is completely useless.
only if killing a Bomber would mean 5 times the pts of an fighter. But then again wouldn't you rather shoot it ?

I have yet to find a server where ramming is considered a legal tactic...
