I wonder why the Blenheim Mk IV bomber turret swings 360 degrees when it's listed for only 180 degrees.

 

I wonder why the A-26B turrets claim only 2 50 cal MGs when you can plainly see 4 MG barrels in total.

 

I wonder what you wonder about?

I wonder why you wonder about what we wonder about.

Perhaps you should change your name to Captain Wonderpants

And lets not forget the Twin Mustang clearly has 2 cockpits but you only assign a pilot.  And yes I realize there is no turret for a gunner.  I think you should be able to assign a 2nd pilot as well, not sure how that would help.

I wonder why I ain't greatly offended.

 

I wonder when all the bugs that they are 'aware of', some for years, will move over to the 'fixin' on it' category.

 

I wonder when the Fall of 2019 will arrive, ushering in the new bombers.

I wonder why so many people still play Warships and Tanks when Warplanes is so much more fun.

Fun fact, the Blenheim's turret has higher listed dps than the gun mounted on its wing :trollface:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

That's a gun?  I thought it was a PEZ dispenser.

The F-82 was originally intended as a B-29 escort to run super long missions over the Pacific, so they did have two pilots.  Later versions that had the radar pod only had a single pilot, and the crewman in the right hand cockpit was the radar operator (like backseaters in later jets)..
