I see your USAAF and raise:  The Polish Airforce LWS-6/PZL-30 Zubr

 

Nice find.  Looks like someone strapped a pair of wings to a WWI era Zeppelin gondola.

I'm pretty sure GhostPrime or someone related to the game has said the B17 will be in the tree.

 

I'm trying to picture a flight of player B-17's flying together and all those MG's going.

I think right now you can only have 1 turret firing on multi turret planes. But imagine a b29 in full swing too

yeah...FU anything not a heavy with a lot of cannons.

This isn't dueling pistols at dawn. This is war. You sneak up behind your enemy and you bash him over the skull. I know this, so does Scar. That's why I'm gonna kill him.

Yes!!

With Dutch markings please. We won't get Fokkers (Fokker T.V bomber would be nice I suppose, so then at least some planes that flew with the Netherlands East Indies Air Force ...

Not turribul, but I think some tweaks would have to be made. In general, you'd want to avoid anything with suffix 'A' as those were light bombers and not medium ones. In fact, all of the bombers in the game are lights (or Schnellbomers for the Germans) currently. The USAAF medium bomber line then would constitute a real step up from the smaller bombers in game. For me, the line would end up looking something like this:

II: B-10

III: B-18 Bolo

IV: B-25 Mitchell (early variants)

V: B-25 Mitchell (late variants)

VI: B-26 Marauder

VII: XB-28 (Dragon)

VIII: either XB-42 Mixmaster or XB-43 Jetmaster (Take your pick, whichever one balances better at this tier)

IX: B-57 Canberra

X: B-66 Destroyer

 

Now the first thing you might be thinking is, wait what? Where's the B-23!?!? And the answer is... premium. The B-23 kinda sucked. It's performance, although better than the B-18 it was derived from proved so indifferent it quickly got supplemented and then eclipsed by the B-25 which had been introduced around the same time. Hence the reason only 38 were ever built. To make up the difference, we can simply stretch the B-25 across two tiers. And as for aircraft like the A-20 or the Hudson/ Ventura? They could end up either as premiums or part of other nations bomber lineups to make up any gaps.

Well reason why I had the Hudson or Ventura was to try and avoid the stretching something like the B25 to fill tiers when there are enough bombers to fill out a list.
