Maybe they can un-nerf the turrets?

That, and honestly all MG-equipped turrets need better range, especially on planes like the Ju-288 A.

 

I don't get why most all MG-armed bombers have a maximum stock range of 700, while at Tier VI and especially at Tier VII you start getting Multiroles and Heavy Fighters with guns that VASTLY out-range such bomber guns.


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

There's no money in that for WG.

They'll make it up with volume :).

 Not machinegun armed ones though, even at T10 the F-86A & F-84F still have 600m ranged MGs.

 

My A-26B gets 889m gunner range and thats not even with the range skill on the gunner.

Trying to close on a pre-gun nerf & Equipment change A-26B was pretty nasty.

True, but that isn't their fault though, especially in the case of the Sabre, where WG simply put the wrong version in the game. I don't think you will often need to worry about taking down bombers in the F-84F either, because it has a relatively low altitude performance, if I do recall.

 

But most of the high-altitude hunters have some nasty stuff, including 37s, 45s, 50s, and 57s. All which outrange MG-armed bombers.

I think Sabre is gonna be fine when I get there, same guns are amazing on FJ-1 but then on a faster, higher & more agile platform that'll never be bottom tier.

 

Anyway my point is MG armed bombers have better range than any MG armed Fighter.

Shorter range than the big cannon on the bomber hunters yes but it would be silly to have 0.50 cals shooting down fighters at +1km.

wow, that rate of 1=63 is Extremely fair

if you need/invest (:rolleyes:) gold, can you buy 150 @ $32 = 9,450

will it also be converted at event end?

 

 

Yes, as they usually and always are. All unused certificates are converted to gold after the end of the event. Sometimes it may take a couple of extra days depending on when a new update releases.

Bought 50 certificates because Efimov and 5 targets with turret gunner. Haven't flown it yet. Painted with a cleaner paint scheme.
