I take it this would explain your love of Bombers in the game?  Did you ever get to go up in a BUFF...aka Big Ugly Fat F***er or the the clean version Big Ugly Fat Fellow (both names said with affection)?

 


Probably does explain it.  But I never did get to go up in one.  They halted the program for enlisteds when one went down with one.  I tried.

 

:(

Here is the paragraph from 6-6-19 News feed talking about the USA bomber line:

 

Following the German and USSR Heavies, by the end of 2019 you can expect to see the most peculiar bombers made in the US.  The first of them is the B-29 Superfortress, the pinnacle of the "Flying Fortress" design that appeared during WWII and was successfully developed for years.  We aren't disclosing the top two models yet.  Suffice to say they are not your regular aircraft, although they did indeed existed and flew in real life.  We believe the aviation history enthusiasts will easily guess what were talking about.


That rules out the B-50 then.  Sounds like maybe the YB-35 and the YB-49.  That said, I am not going to hold my breath waiting for new bombers.


USA: XP31; F11C-2; YP29; F2A-1; XF4F-3; P36C; Hawk 81A1; P38F; XFL; XF4U-1; P39N; XP55; P-47B; F4U1,4; P51H

 | Germany: FW56; AR67; Do17Z7; BF109B, E, E-3, F, G; Bf110B; Me209v4; Spit V DB605, FW190A5   | Japan: Ki5, 61, 84, 88; A6M1, 3, A7M; | 

  ROC: Hawk II; Ki43c; Tomahawk IIb; Mosquito 26; P51K | EU: S510; B534; S199 | VVS: LaGG 3(4); P40M105; Yak7M82, 1, 1M, 3; La5

Were there bombers in the drawing board/ research stage WG might decide to use here?
