A bit off topic but I wish they would add the B24 Liberator, maybe as a T5 Premium. It saw a fair bit of action in WW2.

How about B-25 Mitchell used during Doolittle raid on Tokyo, and a Mitsubishi J2M or Nakajima Ki-44 interceptor to oppose?

Where did you get this info?  The last official words I saw on the subject were 'late fall of 2019'.  I do wonder why they haven't updated this old and frankly, incorrect, information.

Be careful, just today I got banned from the WOWP discord for asking this very question.

 

(long story is, yesterday I made a joke about how RU gets preferential treatment to our region for which I received a kick. I rejoined the server as if nothing had happened and I got da boot)

At least the devs read our stuff. :bajan:

so sorry, brother!      btw, miss your smiling face on Sat night

 

if I'm reading this correctly, the CIS server has high tier US bombers?

oh you meant we all have high tier Russian bombers, but not US bombers

 

prob having issues balancing them...  wait, that's a big issue for Soviet bombers too

Well if you mean by "fair bit of action" you mean the main heavy bomber in the European theater of operations and the main bomber in the Pacific until the arrival of the B-29, or maybe just go with the title of "most produced military aircraft in American history", then yes, it did see a fair bit of action. 

 

The B-24 was not only built in far far greater numbers than the more famous B-17, dropped far more bombs over far more missions, it also had an exceedingly long range allowing it to reach targets the B-17's didn't have the legs to attack.  This make the B-24 the primary heavy bomber in the Pacific until the B-29 arrived in numbers as well as such missions as the bombing raid on the Ploiesti oil fields in Romania.

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

pretty important air contributor to WWII success

 

WILLOW RUN

https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Willow_Run

 

 

Liberator variants produced at Willow Run

The B-24E was the first variant of the B-24 that underwent primary manufacture by Ford at Willow Run. Not only did Ford build 490 complete planes, but it also supplied components of B-24Es as kits that could be trucked for final assembly at the factories of Consolidated in Fort Worth and Douglas in Tulsa, 144 and 167 kits.[3]

B-24Es built and fully assembled at Ford were designated B-24E-FO; those assembled at Tulsa and Fort Worth out of parts supplied by Ford were designated B-24E-DT and B-24E-CF respectively. Because of production delays encountered at Willow Run as a result of the inevitable difficulties and snags involved in the adaptation of automobile manufacturing techniques to aircraft, the B-24Es produced at Willow Run were, generally, obsolete by the time that it began to roll off the production lines, and most were relegated to training roles in the United States and hence few ever saw combat.[3][24]

The B-24H was the first variant produced by Ford at Willow Run in large numbers that went into combat. The B-24H differed from earlier B-24s by having a second turret placed in the nose of the aircraft to increase defensive firepower. Because of the many structural changes required to accommodate the nose turret, the first B-24Hs were delivered slightly behind schedule, with the first machines rolling off the production lines at Ford in late June 1943. Production for the B-24H at Willow Run was 1,780.[3]

Upon the introduction of the B-24J, all three of the Liberator manufacturing plants converted to the production of this version. The B-24J incorporated a hydraulically driven tail turret and other defensive armament modifications in the nose of the aircraft. The bomber plant produced its first B-24J in April 1944; 1587 were built at Willow Run.[3][24]

During June 1944, the Army determined that the San Diego and Willow Run plants would be capable of meeting all future requirements for Liberator production. The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was taking over the long-range bombing role in the Pacific Theater and no new B-24 units were programmed for deployment in the other combat theaters of Europe, the Mediterranean or in the CBI.[24]

The B-24L was the first product of the new, downsized Liberator production pool. It was an attempt to reverse the trend toward ever-increasing weight of the Liberator as more and more armament, equipment, and armor had been added, with no corresponding increase in engine power. With the weight reduction and more powerful engines, it also had a much longer range than earlier models. 1250 B-24L aircraft were built at Willow Run.[3][24]

The B-24M was the last large-scale production variant of the Liberator. Apart from a new tail turret, the B-24M differed little from the B-24L. The first B-24Ms were delivered in October 1944, and by the end of its production in 1945, Willow Run had built 1677; 124 Ford-built B-24Ms were cancelled before delivery.[3][24]

Ford had switched over to the single-tailed B-24N in May 1945, but the end of the war in Europe in the same month brought a rapid end to Liberator production; the contract with Ford was officially terminated on 31 May 1945 and orders for 5168 unbuilt B-24N-FO bombers were cancelled as well. The delivery of seven YB-24Ns by Ford in June 1945 marked the end of Liberator production at Willow Run.[3][25]

Yes, we should have British bombers first (at least until tier 7) and then WG should make the rest of US Bombers.

I read on a post back in like August or something that said high tier US bombers would be here by "Christmas 2019." Still hasn't happened though.

WG got themselves in to the dark corner with bombers. Everyone knows what B-29 was used for and its Soviet copy Tu-4 intended purpose.

We might never see B-29 and Tu-4 in our game.

 

There are other options though.

For example, make two lines of bombers for USA and USSR. This might create a lot of balancing issues. I'm not WG administrator/programmer/owner, it's just a guess.

Piece of junk Tu-10 cannot be compared to state of the art Tu-4. And Tu-4 can only be compared to B-29, they got about the same bomb load I guess.

 

That's why I would prefer to have British bomber line to come before that balancing act of US/Soviet line, if it even happens.

 

Avro Lancaster was the best British bomber of WWII. And I would really love to have one in my collection. Even though it was used at night mostly, and it probably will get destroyed in the game easily because of under-powered turrets compared to B-17 or B-24.

I keep wondering why we haven't seen any British bombers? Especially the Lancaster.

Speaking of balance. There are a lot of obvious balance issues with a lot of American fighters and German aircraft. (FW190 for instance)

I keep asking when we will see more updates; maps; aircraft. WoT and WoWS seems to be getting plenty of attention. I understand the idea behind the improvements in the aforementioned, but I can't recall the last major update in WoWP.
