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

 

I proposed the Canberra for the British T10 the other day.

gosh I do want to use B-47, maybe even the B-52 (That would be tier X otherwise it would be crazy) :)

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

 

 

yeah it would be too much to do all the sub cats

The B-52 D with the Big Belly mod carried 32 tons of bombs internally and on the wing pylons.  Maybe a bit OP?  In real life also.

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.

 

It seems that this thing is over-powered and under-powered

Maybe it COULD work in a semi-high tier like VI,VII or VIII

B-52 Is in operation still, and, yes, it would be a bit overpowered unless you but it in for tier X and B-17 for IX.

Man I hope an admin sees all this and realizes: what have we been doing all our lives, WE MUST ADD MORE BOMBERS!

B-58 at T8, to compete with the RB-17.  It would be super-fast, but carry a lighter bombload and bomb reload would be longer.

I'd really like to fly the B-24 in the game. Really would like to see more bomber lines come out soon. Tired of these game play changes, just want more planes really.

Short answer; yes, yes they should.

~Takes deep breath~ SOOOOOOOOOOOOOHP

 

So from the top, and by which I mean Tier II:

II: YB-9

III: XB-15

IV: B-17 (B-D models)

V: B-17 (E/G models)

VI: B-24

VII: B-32

VIII: B-29/50

IX: B-45

X: B-47

 

Keep in mind this HB line would be separate from the MB or "tactical bomber" line that would fall more in line with what it is currently in game. That line would have entirely different aircraft.

I would like to see the B-25 with all its variants. the glass nose, the 4x 50s, the 75mm howitzer, and the 8x 50 cal nose.

I have the first model i ever built of a B-25J i think with the 8x nose guns and 4x in the side blisters

the A-26 also had the largest complement of forward 50 cals of any WW2 aircraft upwards of 20+
