is this just soviet bombers?  if so I'm sooo disappointed!!!!  I thought I would finally get some American bombers.  Where are the sb2c, helldiver, Grumman tbf avenger, b25 Mitchell, b24 liberator, b17 flying fortress, and b29 super fortress?  These are the bombers that actually mattered in ww2.  America had the best bombers out there. They b17 gets used in attack flights so its already modeled in the game so make it playable.   I'm so sick of having to resort to flying enemy (German and Russian) planes for ground attack and bomber.  (although yes Russia was technically an ally in ww2 the cold war still makes them an enemy.)  I would even settle for British bombers like the Halifax and Lancaster.  If any country needed more planes it was japan. Where are the vals, kates and betty bombers?  Honestly who has ever even herd of these Russian planes?  I know I haven't.  Lets forgo the obscure planes and have the most produced bombers in history.  Those are the planes I want to see.  And as long as we are talking about bombers does anybody else find it ridiculous to have a dive BOMBER with no bombs?  The name stuka actually comes from the German word for dive BOMBER.  The Russian tier 5 ground attack plane has 4 bombs plus rockets.  All I'm asking for is 1 bomb on the most famous dive bomber in history.   Preferably a 500lb. (sc 250)

A Lanc would be awesome!

 

And if I recall correctly, there's work being done on the JPN heavy fighters, atm.

I would also like to see the f6f but the f6f was the hellcat.  The f8 was the bearcat and that would be another nice plane to see.  the f4f wildcat was developed into the f6f hellcat which was in turn developed into the f8 bearcat.  The f4u corsair should be a completely different line because its a completely different plane.

David never wrote a song called Do the Hellcat, so...fine, you caught me...I was thinking the F8F line (up to the f9 panther and cougar).  I stand corrected.:P

I agree the panther and cougar would be cool but we are getting off topic.  this was supposed to be about bombers.  wouldn't you like a us navy bomber line?  sb2c, helldiver, tbf avenger, you could even go to the a1 skyraider.  I know you said the game doesn't need more bombers but wouldn't you like a b17 flying fortress?  And just to prove my point from earlier can you honestly say you have ever herd of these Russian bombers before today?  I cant stress enough about how disappointed I am.  I got so excited about this patch when I read the teaser post this morning and it was such a let down to see Russian bombers.  They are the last country that should have got bombers.

Well, the new dev blog does mention planes being able to bomb while level, or diving...

 

So, we may be on the edge of actually seeing some proper dive-bombers in game...

 

But that leaves the question of... what's going to happen with the AT version of the Stuka, or, will the giant dive-brake on the tail of the 217M become usable?

Alas, no, not a big fan of GA/bombers.  More a fan of dog fighting PvP 15 v 15, which isn’t ever going to happen.  Casual play is where the $ is apparently.  People don’t want to learn/develop skills, play overly hard challenges like different tiers mixed together.

To be honest I don't really like ga/bombers either.  my highest ga is t5 and I hated grinding through the German bomber line.  Until a bomber is specialist its a pain to fly.  I have a specialist do 217 and its good when you have daily missions for ground targets but other than that I don't fly it.  I thought bombers that I actually like might make flying bombers more fun.  If anything this update will just piss me off.  From the sounds of it the Russian bombers will probably be better than the German bombers so its another plane that I have to upgrade to specialist that I will hate flying.  Its such a pain to upgrade bombers so this is going to take so much time flying a crappy plane that I have never herd of instead of flying something cool.

Wish you would stop showing real people connected to WoWP, it's sad to think they will be unemployed soon

What happens to the cat when the office closes ?

Oddly enough, much of the focus has been on the cat...

 

That's some pretty subtle (and frighteningly effective) distraction...
