RB-17 is going H.A.M. Damn DAMN DAYUMN!!!

Damn I love this plane.


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.

Do you run it high-altitude or low? Couple I've seen running low were scary [edited].
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

low altitude. Under 500 feet(I use imperial since that's what I used in the military, or least pilots hsed it and I overheard it).

 

Funny part was I didn't even notife my score till a guy on the other side pointed it out.  But catching that player in the bomb blast, he was a tad salty.

Gj. Was it you that asked about hi or low? Glad to see you went low and had a good time with it! So much more engaging than hiding up high.  And that plane isn't as easy xp pinata some fighters would like....especially when they think you're an easy kill down low.  Until they eat a bomb lol. Those bombs are surprisingly powerful.

The 100kgs were such reliable bomb-killers in the olden days that some even opted to use it with the more advanced Ilyushins just for the extra two shots.

 

Imagine a trail of six of those...not pretty for the pursuers for sure.

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

Yeah it was me. And I get LOW. Well under 500 feet AGL. Quite a few times I've run into trees I'm so low on the deck.

i guess a bomber could go all HAM, but why fly a jet bomber on the deck?

 

oh well, i'm sure it works out, because i've seen it work well for other pilots in several battles now

 

i'll go down to 1000-1200 feet AGL, but there's too many nearly invisible things sticking up in the air for me to go any lower, at those speeds you need to stay alive 

 

o7, brother!

That's why I think all bombers should have penalty when going low, it's very

hard for me to lose in RB-17

Rear gun is so epic it could toast many planes as it lumber away...and down low you get a lot of pursuers...

 

RB-17 is my go-to for rear gun mission...
