Ummm.. I just saw an FW-200 in a battle. I don't think I've ever seen it.. it was flown by an opposing AI. I was impressed.

You mean the 252? The Fw-200 is a four engined heavy bomber that appears as part of bomber flights on certain maps. 

 

The 252 looks impressive buy its really not a good plane. I personally call it the worst tier X fighter in the game. It gets overshadowed in every meaningful way by the British tier X, the Swift - the Swift has a higher top speed and better time to turn. They both get similarly erratic guns and the same optimum altitude. The Fw252 gets superior roll and boost time, but the latter is only an additional two seconds.

 

Overall I would say - don't bother. Some people like it, and it has its charm I suppose, but as a competitive tier X fighter its atrocious.

 

If you're actually talking about an actual Fw200 flown independently by a bot then I want to know what tier you were flying because that would indicate that its going to be the next German bomber available.

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

The Fw-200 is actually the model of aircraft used by bomber flights in tier 8 and 9 battles. Considering the B-17D and B-17G were made playable, it's possible we may get the Fw-200 in the future, but it seems pretty unlikely considering the German bomber playstyle.

Was it supposedly part of a bomber flight?  I have seen "flights" of one bomber before.  I suspect the others were shot down somewhere along the line and I showed up at the end when everyone else had flown off...

T8, in my RB-17. The Opposing AI bot was an FW 200 not a bomber flight

That's why _I_ was caught off guard. I'm used to them being in a bomber flight.. but those go in a constant straight line.. this was definitively not and had a name above it. Weird bug maybe?

A preview of the extended German bomber line?

See, that's what I was mildly wondering as I remember seeing the B-32 a couple of times in the game in the days leading up to the patch that dropped the American Bombers.

IF I see it again I am going to make sure to screenshot it even if it costs me a death.

You don’t have replays enabled?  That would allow you to view it again.  Files are stored in your user profile video folder.

Laptop is a potato, so I don't normally have replay enabled :/

Ah well, maybe I was seeing things, maybe it was a bug.. or if we're lucky it's a preview of the German Bombers that are supposed to be upcoming. Time will tell, I've been flying all T10 stuff the last couple of days on the ratings grind so.
