So which is it?  In one place it talks about the A-26B retaining its' high speed characteristics at lower altitude and in another place it says the speed has been reduced.  Mutually exclusive.

No, it is not mutually exclusive. Speed was reduced for the bombers on the whole, including A-26B. But A-26B remains a high-speed bomber only compared to other bombers.

 

Block Quote

 Bombers with the ability to launch offensives, the A-26B and Pe-2 in particular, will still be able to fly at low altitude, maintaining high speed (for their type)

There is an EU event for it... have not seen any information about an event for it here, but the plane model is being added to the whole game

Ah, EU only ??

 

It's in our (EU) patchnotes like this :

 

Promotional planes

  • Hawker Hurricane Mk Ia – Tier IV British fighter

Special hangar design, based on the movie Hurricane (303. Bitwa o Anglię), has been added.

Don't have a clue how the promotion works ...

  • The attack aircraft’s resistance to bomb and missile explosion damage was increased, as this type of aircraft is in the immediate proximity of the targets being bombed. It became more difficult to destroy the attack aircraft with a bomb explosion.

Does this mean that an IL-40 will survive a faceful of R4Ms now? Used to be they took all 24 to die, now they'll actually survive? (Kinda important for a guy who fires those things at suicide range)

Welp. That confirms it. No go on the new mode. Bomber Escort mode would have made this update more interesting.

  • The speed of all classic bombers was reduced for heights below their optimal altitude. This makes their interception at low altitudes easier.
  • Bombers with the ability to launch offensives, the A-26B and Pe-2 in particular, will still be able to fly at low altitude, maintaining high speed (for their type) and maneuverability characteristics. In this case, the altitude of such bombers is now less than that of classic models.

 

Blindfold, I am still confused.  Is the A-26B speed reduced or isn't it?  Thank you for your patience.

Yes, it is reduced. A-26B just has speed higher than other bombers do, but lower than it had before the update.

No changes to how we earn materials.  Guess I will just be playing for the free stuff with a closed billfold.

I think what is trying ot be said is that the A-26's speed is being reduced by a lesser amount then the other bombers, ie: Do.217 is reduced by 10% while the A-26 is reduced by 5% (numbers are made up for an example not actual values)

I'm really sad at the lack of changes to the Specialist system. Looks like aside of the event I have no real reason to return anytime soon :(


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

No fix for the boost bug...

 

I'd like to say good work on the rest of the patch, honestly... but, alas... failure to address this game breaker ruins the entire patch in my eyes.

 

DISABLE THE ITEM UNTIL YOU CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX IT...

 

 

Another patch full of window dressing and paint... and rampant bugs still run rampant...
