I have decided to go up a bomber line.  I would love to hear your opinions on what line to persue.

ill give you a warning if you go down the b17 line the b17d is meh she has a lot of blind spots on her tail and sides. but the b17g is a lot better it is a major improvement if you get the b17g research the bombs first then the rest

The B-17D is a bit tough but the B-17G is pretty good.  The B-32 is just a BEAST!

They re low level bombers, more like a Heavy Fighter.  And fragile, but fast.

I like the German line.

 


What we say to death?

Dittos. 

I have the B17D and G and find that I can manage more damage per play with comparable German Bombers. Tier V and VI that is.


My status is "Senior Airman". Is that because I'm old? :sceptic:

It's worth the bucks I suppose but I am not a real fan of it.  Others do much better than I with it.  As an investment, the RB-17 can't be beat.  Even after the nerfing attacks.

the a26b premium is a beast she can bomber fight and is maneuverable not like the other b17s or the b32 it can turn roll and climb and  dive. she is a good bomber I say get it.

The A-26B is basically a Heavy Fighter with a really nasty turret, (relatively) low speed and puny bombs that reload really, REALLY fast.

 

 

The B-17s are crazy good but are difficult to master because of their bomb drops. The B-32 is insane.

 

The Germans are high speed precision bombers. Where the American challenge is usually about lining your targets up, for the Germans its more how to stay alive with your puny defensive weapons

 

And finally the Russians start out similar to the Germans but then transition into fast, maneuverable dive-bombers

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

I should note that apart from the B-32 video, all of that was taken pre-turret nerf.

I very much enjoy the A-26.  As a very heavy fighter, or a super-fast GAA, it kicks butt.

I submit that the A-26B has gone through other turret nerfs.  I refer to the fact that it will no longer swivel and shoot 360 degrees.  Dang it!

true but with the right skills on the gunner of the a26b you can still do the damage to other planes that try to come in on your tail.

This thread has made me realize why the A-26B, Pe-2, and Pe-2 82M are my least favorite bombers.  The A-26B because I don't want to fly a HF, and the two Pe's because I don't care for dive bombing.  The Ar-2 would be on this list (it can dive bomb too) but it is actually pretty good at good old level bombing.  Now that I have said this, I further realize that I am a lazy bum.

 

:P

it's cool honestly I never tried those bombers the pe-2 or the pe-2 82m or the ar-2 I'm looking at the Russian bombers but right now but I am grinding the candy cane thing to get the tier 8 muti role. I have the tier 7 but I haven't played it yet. I been trying to get use to heavy fighters. I finally got the tire 5 Japanese heavy and British tier 5 heavy fighter.

Man at the info!

 

Thanks for all this excellent info, have started on the US line.  I am watching those vids one by one and learning.  I do wish I had more than 2 drops of bombs. maybe if I get PSecialist, I can get a quicker reload. Will see.

 

Again, thank you for the info.
