If you know how to play angles, distance, you force them to stall out.  Hell, this works even with some players that don't know any better on how to gain altitude without stalling out.

 

The AA?  You nail the heavy AA first with the first run and then you can do whatever you want.  The real threat has always been player heavy fighters and high altitude fighters.

 

AHHH... don't forget the A26-B.. fighter, er heavy fighter, er GA plane, l mean bomber........they tend to present a slight problem for T-5-6 non premium bombers especially when human piloted.

 

Actually it is a ridiculous plane should have been brought in as a GA at T-5 certainly not a bomber with its current nose gun armament.

There were/is plenty of USAF A/C that would have been perfect fit for that slot that were actual bombers not ground attackers.

Yeah, it's dirtily OP. On a sidenote, a B-25 or B-26 variant would have been a much better Tier VI premium USA Bomber.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Yeah l was thinking B-26 Marauder would have been the ticket for that slot or the A26-C with the glass nose would have been fine.

I can see the B-25 being split into B-25A/B/C and B-25G/H/J .

Speaking of Oh so Dirty, dirty OP ...

Where do you suppose B-17 variants would go? 

Presuming the "faster than anything you can do, in tier 1 or 2" Martin B-10 around tier 2~3

You could start with the A-D versions at Tier 4 you lose that speed advantage as other planes get faster.
but pick up a belly and 2 waist turrets. And your still tough as nails.
At tier 5-6 though things gets weird.
The E  and F models (that show up in all the movies) start off by being fast enough (as long as you keep upgrading the engines) but a more responsive and maneuverable plane. All at the cost of going from being FukHuge to 20% More FukHuge.
Which is nice now that multirole fighters can catch you if you're napping and  high altitude fighters will catch you even if you aren't. And thats ok. Because alot of that mass increase is going into Moar Dakka!.
Thanks to a new tail and dorsal turret added. With further upgrades to the belly and waist positions
Ending with the G models  adding in a Chin Turret as well as 2 more guns sticking out the nose and one more out the radio room.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

I think you can see B-17D now in attack flights in somewhere near T6-T7, and B-17G in T10 games.

Given that mid-tier games have A6M2/P-40 and T10 games have Spit IX as their air defense aircrafts, perhaps B-17D at T5 and G at T7?
