Will you be playing that Blenny bomber (or the Douglas bomber should T6 release come with it)?

 

I'm hoping that today(Sunday) the Douglas is available to play.  The Blenny is just....ugh....  In other news, Pt 4 is done and uploaded!  The final video covering bombers is incoming soon!

Just watched parts 3 & 4, well done. I said this in another thread but adding this mode to the current game cycle while keeping the current flight model would add some badly needed diversity to the game.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

I agree.  2.0 doesn't need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.  Here's what I think the best of both worlds would look like.

 

A.  Conquest is added as an additional battle mode.  Due to low pops on all servers, this is a mode that cannot be opted out of.

B.  Because having planes fly differently depending on mode would be confusing at best, a single set of game physics for flight model and ballistics is applied to both modes.

C.  The graphics improvements of 2.0 are applied across the board.

D.  The UI elements like target aspect window and radar from patch 1.9 that have been omitted in Conquest are retained/returned.

E.  The current continuous in-game music is retained in favor of the new soundtrack, which is disjointed and has a lot of dead-air time.

F.  THREE MAN FLIGHTS RETURNED TO GAME.

I agree 100% but you forgot the missing HUD elements, Angle of Attack/Artificial Horizon and for joystick users throttle percentage.

The A-26 seems like an exception with forward arms equivalent to same-tier fighters...but we dunno for sure until the full tree is out.

 

High altitude bombing means that a bomber can solo an airfield (no high alt AA and LF defenses means they can't get high) provided there's no enemy interference.

 

Fun fact: The A-26 is the first-ever aircraft to have its canopy in open position in hangar.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Played the A-26b a few times already. It's a great first bomber plane to play with (excluding the blenheim t3 that doesn't remotely compare). Combine it with bomber sights equip + 2 of the ordnance skills in crew and you can camp up high and do bomb runs with great accuracy all day long. Not the type of playstyle im interested in unfortunately. But is interesting regardless. Side note this thing does fairly well dogfighting against other bombers with 6x .50cals.

Agreed.  Built for increased accuracy she rains hell every 30 seconds and has the firepower to dish out loads of pain to enemy bombers that don't immediately treat her as a threat.
