I think America tech tree deserves some more bombers. They had (and still have!) some AWESOME bomber planes! Like the Boieng 3-17 Flying Fortress and other bombers.

There should be more bombers. Lots and lots of bombers but not just for the US, but more bombers period.

Ok... Prenz, Mr. I only want to fly bombers... Yeah, it'd be nice if we could get a full length American bomber tree and top tier German bombers and British bombers and Japanese bombers and yeah... it'd be nice if we could just get some more planes of any kind. The real thing I find annoying is that the RB-17 doesn't have any tech tree counterparts. So, if you don't have a RB-17, you can't bomb in top tier games...

 

If you haven't seen it, the 5th episode of WG's Bruce Dickinson Warplane diaries talks about the B-17, so maybe there's hope...

I would like to fly the Martin Baltimore. I think it looks cool.

Hold on there Dru, I do fly other planes, I'm just better at flying bombers. I think you are right, we do need more tech trees with more nations. There is a definite lack of higher tier bombers and your right again, without the RB-17 there is nothing tier 8 or higher except that. Your on top of this issue.

Prenzlau

bombers are essentials for any real battle, but thats the problem, there is none! 

Anyways, some more bombers would be awesome for gameplay!

In the current game meta, how would a heavy bomber fit with medium bombers?  Would that be one of those things that WG introduces and then feels that it must rebalance everything to compensate?  Technically the DO 217 is a heavy bomber but it is also an OP medium by some WWII definitions.  I just wonder what bomber pilots think of the differences.

I think the difference may come down to speed, and accuracy.

Heavy bombers would be slower, more HP, and more defence if the B-17 and Lancaster are anything to go off of.

German might actually go for speed and altitude, considering their striking needs were different due to limited numbers.

The Japanese line has a large hole where there should be some bombers.

So do you think if they did have a huge bomber update they could add bomber sub-categories? I don't oppose that really.

I think that every tech tree (besides Germany unless they added like a tier X) deserves a full or semi-full tree of bombers. By that I mean they evolve from like multiroles or heavy fighters higher in the tree. We really need tier X bombers because it makes bombers seem under-powered to only go up to tiers five or six. Like the US tech tree: ONE bomber and its not even the flying fortress! I could see the line of the US getting opened up by some kind of light bomber(s) and then like medium bombers and the Boeing flying fortress and stratofortress. SO, in conclusion of THAT all tech trees should have up to tier X bombers so that they are not under-powered. Also congrats if you read the entire thing :medal:.

There are already "sub categories" with planes classes as there is right now.

For example, the P-51 and the Zero are both LF but serve greatly different roles and playstyles.

The same could be said for bombers in the future.

Yes but it would be like "heavy bomber" "light bomber" etc.

Probably in name only, and not an official game programing designation.

T10 - B-36.  One bomb, 90 second reload time.

 

The one bomb destroys the whole cap area and all ADA under 2000m.

 

Downside is that the bomber is dead slow, and kind of fragile.

If you're lucky, you might get the B-47 as your tier X. Or the XB-51

I think the American Bomber shtick will be forward firepower like the A/B-26 so the XB-51 could be freakin hilarious at tier X. Eight 20mms.
