How about a bomber escort mission. Would need a large map to provide maybe 10 minutes of flight time through enemy territory to bomb a set target. Fighters to provide cover for a flight of bombers. Victory for the attacking side if enough bombers get through to complete the mission, bombers have to play their part by hitting the target. Victory for the defenders if they take out the bombers or the bombers fail to eliminate the target.

There's already versions of this in conquest mode - all those asymmetric maps which put a Command Center on one side and a bunch of non CC caps on the other. They're frustrating as hell

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Problem with Bomber escort missions is where do you put the GAAs. I'm guessing that's why they came up with Invasion, which is basically an escort mode with GAAs included (except they forgot to give us enough people to escort with :sceptic:)


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

I think those bombers flights from command centers should have a "cap zone" around them to provide those extra points for "kills while defending" and other multipliers.

You mean clear forward AA positions or the like?

agreed.  You are defending the cap.

Agreed, I think there should be more rewards for killing and defending those CC bombers.
