Crew members should not be restricted to just rear gunners.

I just got the Starfire and I am looking longingly at that rear seat, thinking about how much I would like to put someone there.

And how about the D0 17 Z-7? I think it had a crew of 4! Talk about a nice crew trainer (mitigated by the fact that it is a tier 3 premium :-)

 

If I recall correctly, WoWP had navigators in beta (or maybe it was alpha). Having other crew members that add a little something would be nice.

 

Or at least, we should be able to put a rookie pilot in the back seat and say "Now look Sonny, this is how it is done!".

Navigator was basically useless outside of providing Tutor and back then only one plane (Fw 57) had the position, the navigator role was removed at one point and remain true 'till today.

 

...now along with removal of premium percentage crew training, the tutor skill was also removed. What purpose will navigator/copilot serve...outside of providing extra sight?

 

If Do-17 had to use two rear gunner to function............



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Seriously, we are already paying for repairs and to re-arm.

Why not put a ground crew on the tarmac.

And a screen door on the submarine in the background.

What gets me about this game is that they sell premium aircraft that were supposed to be training aircraft for pilots. And yet not a single one of them is actually the trainer version of the aircraft. We should be able to train TWO pilots in the trainer versions at the same time.

You can.

You can place any pilot you want into a premium and train them.

If there is a TG, you can train a TG too.

1 pilot plus 1 TG = 2

Or if you want to be technical because you said 2 pilots.

 F2F pilot moves to the XFL-1 for 1 battle

 F3F pilots is moved to the XFL-1 for 1 battle.

That is 2 pilots gaining experience in 2 different games.

At least it is easier to move pilots to premium planes to train them. That makes me want to fill all the seats even more.
