If we ever get around to 2.0 and they still decide to put bombers in what Bomber aircraft would you like to see in the game first?

Well the B-17 is the classic most people would want. Beyond that, I always liked the look of the Heinkel 111. The Mitchell B-25 and the Lancaster are also pretty nice.

That would be cool as heck® 

But the B-25 is my favorite bomber (Doolittle Raid and the G and H models were awesome gunships )

if I would have to guess what lines of bombers that will come first would be the USA, UK, and Russian lines because there seems to be premiums already being tested for bombers involving these nations but hopefully they will fill out the Japanese tree with some bombers too.

B-29 Superfortress, best prop bomber ever built.

B-29s?  B-17s? B-24s???  More importantly, how the heck am I supposed to shoot one of these down, even if it is a bot!  Will they be in singles during these "interception" missions?  Groups?  A combat box of four B-17Gs has like 87,000 overlapping 50cals, how is my Zero supposed to survive more than a half second to even get in range?  I get that there will be different bombers for different tiers, but still, not all us of fly T9 German stuff with huge cannons, I hope they nerf the heck out of the bomber guns.  Will they be at 4,000m where nothing but jets can reach them or will these hypothetical B-24s come down to 1,000m where I can at least try and put some holes in them with my Wildcat?   In a way I don't want them to be too easy to shoot down, what would be the point of that?  WWII experience showed that to kill a big bomber you need something 20mm or larger at the very least, I'm going to need to start researching new lines now...

Its going to be arcadey, they're going to start out with small bombers first.

The B-17G is the Allied representative of high tier heavy bomber flights...I reckon it's tier 7, because by tier 10 NPC planes' tier don't seem to exceed 7.

On the same note, the Fw 200 is the Axis representative for high tier bomber flight (even if the defense planes are Japanese).

Handley Page HP 52 is mid-tier bomber flight for the Allies, and B-17F when it goes slightly higher than that.

 

...while the bombers players get to use seems to be light bomber...like the A-26 Invader, and all three have pretty low payloads (The T8 RB-17 has 18 100kg bombs dropped six at a time, the A-26 has 16 100lb bombs dropped four at a time, and Blenheim has 250lbs dropped one at a time).

 

Strategic bombers is likely be limited to NPC planes, but the full bomber tree isn't out yet...

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.

Looks like it will mainly be medium bombers.

 

My Wish List-

He-111

Ju-88/Ju-388

Do-217

G4M Betty

Ki-21

Pe-2

Handley Page Hampden

Armstrong Whitley

Polish PZL 37

IL-2

B-26

The SM. 79 (three engine- unique)

Leo 45

 

Of those mainly the German, Japanese, Italian, and Maybe a Brit plane.


The (not so) amazing Chokai is back! And he's hit all his personal goals sans one! Seriously though, nice to be back, looks like he game is improving. I continue to try to recruit new people.

B17! And a proper stuka dive bomber. The current one is amusingly depressing being reduced to a low flying GA. Put those 2 alone and I might reconsider flying a few. But as it stands...Nah!

The "Handley Page Hampden" is one of the planes you can shot down in the T4 missions that have bomber formations.  Since planes don't have cockpits....

 

Anyways, on topic:

 

Short Sterling

HE-177/277

Tupolev TB-1

 

TBH, though I think the fun might be limited to twins as 4 engine bombers would either be OP or too large to turn on these smaller maps.
