i never made enough tokens or crates or whatever they called it to even get the t3 bomber 

 

i'm not much of a fighter pilot, so i hoped that someday i could help my teams as a bomber 

 

crap, missed my chance

Don't give up hope!

 

We should see a tech line of bombers that go all the way up to tier X, sometime this month or next month.

 

The Blenheim Mk IVearly, A-26B and RB-17 should be available to *buy* next year!

Doubtful that a bomber tree will be ready by that point hunh?

You might just be able to scrape enough tokens for the Blenheim in the next 70 days or so...it's pretty cheap at less than 100 tokens. Cut your expenses and you should save up enough silver to advance through the tiers in a brisk pace.



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

indeed this patch has made tokens even easier to earn, be a great fighter pilots and you will earn a dozen

even not completing the missions

Something to consider. There's getting high and then there is getting stupid crazy high (yes, let the joke "fly"). I have experimented a little with altitude and found that once i got my Blenheim up around 3500m, above the large AA fire, the grouping of my bomb hits, cluster, was a lot wider, more scattered, fewer hits. So I think there's a bit of a trade off. You can get really hiGh, but you may not have the same number of potential hits as you may have at optimal altitude.

I find 2,500m a good min altitude.

Not so much accuracy (though I do have the Bombsight equipment mounted) but the speed falls off up around 3,000m.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

jeez, that is so damn high...    that's 8202 feet for us metric-handicapped Muricans

 

how long does it take to climb that high?
