I wonder how some of these folks would react to the B-17's and B-29's that were in IL-2 1946 which they would have to shoot down while flying a Ki-43 or A6M2-21.

 

And unlike in this game, they tended to fly in groups of 8-12 with overlapping fields of fire.

Or even the low altitude A-20's which also flew in groups of 8-12.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

I'd love to see huge bombers in this game like B-17s and B-29s with 5000+ hp, it would force fighters to work together like a team. The way things are now, there is no team work unless flighted.

B17, B24..........I'd even settle for B25's, B26's, Bettys, HE111's........ANYTHING but flying tanks.  At least that would be more realistic.

do you realize that some of those have multiple gun turrets? The b17 had 5 gunners other than the front firing guns. You would crap bricks and get yourself an aneurysm if you had to face one of those....

If this were realistic, you'd be whining anout 30mm cannons one shotting any plane you fly. You'd be complaining that 30/50 cal MG's shredded your control surfaces. You'd be parachuting when AA smacked you. And, of course, you wouldn't even know how to fly the plane.

Pretty much this. The gun positions would need to be needed to a pointless value because of the amount of overlap some positions have OR they'd have to do with them like the ship positions on certain maps where there's only one AA emplacement shooting at you even if the vessel should have more.
