    History my friend. Fighters are the key ingredient to any airwar. Battle of Britain. What won that? Spits and Hurricanes. Not Wellingtons and Lancasters. What won the war over Europe in 1943. Lots and lots of P-38's, P-47's and eventually P-51's. Sure there were a lot of B-17's involved, but in early 1943, without the P-51, Spaatz and Eaker were serisously considering abondoning daylight precision raids because of worsening German FIGHTER opposition. So yes...maybe bombers are more important...once the first step of air superiority has been won.

    Also...if you are so defensive of the bomber as being the most important tool...why then do you have a signature of a Spitfire?

    Just wondering.

    This thead is dumb. "Whis is more important, fighters or bombers?". Its like "which is better, a microwave oven or a tennis racquet".
    About the Betty, I want to have it. Probably I won't fly it much (I don't fly the other bombers a lot) but I will do it ocasionally for variety's sake. I don't fly much the TB-3, but I really had fun with it sometimes and I like the fact that it is there.
    In my (humble) opition PF needs a few more planes. Some historically important planes are missing (the same could be said for FB-AEP too!). I know there are some on the making, so I'll wait patiently until the patch comes.

    CKY-86,

    Congratulations on your promotion to Lord of the Dumb people!

    I have never heard such a stupid comment from a human being as your work of art located above.

    Oh', I'm thinking about it alright, I'm thinking how the hell can this person be allowed access to a computer?

    I'll bet that when you bought that phone with it's built in radio and you discovered that the ****ing radio was missing you would have been the first person in line back at the store to get your phone fixed!

    'most of the people who are beckoning for the betty, proberlly wont even fly it'

    Huh? what is that all about? That may happen in the schoolyard that you occupy bretween 9 and 3 but not in the real world. Yay! the Betty has arrived.....but I don't wanna fly it....I just like to know it's there if I ever wanted to fly it...which I won't...ever! PS: I am a complete idiott! Yes, that 2 T's for twice the I D I O T!

Here you go Yanks, some torpedo catchers for you...oops, I meant bomb catchers since the Japanese forces weren't flying carrier based A-20's at the time of the attack.
