Cheers!

So I got the package and indeed its the 270 certs one. But it comes with 3 steel crates. For me, all three steel crates gave me other premium planes, two of which I already had. The two planes and other gold gave me 10,000 extra gold. 10,000 gold is worth almost 50 bucks. The package itself comes with 7 days premium time and 3500 gold, which is worth 15 dollars for the gold and about 3 bucks for the premium time (i go buy the 30 days cost of premium time). So guess what, I got 70 dollars worth of gold and premium time, a new premium tier 6 spitfire that I didn't have, and the B29C for 70 dollars. Not bad. Thanks G. 

 

The best part is that for all of this I also got all of the mission reward items and the piece of mind in knowing that i don't have to worry about the grind and I can just play the game how I want over the next month. In the end for me it is like buying a lot of premium time early and getting two free planes at the same time. Hopefully the rest of you will do as well as I did if you end up buying the package.

So, Wallet_Warrior[OWSS] here.  I paid the $70, got the plane, 25000 FXP, 7500 gold, and a crapload of mechanical parts (which I am always short of).  The FXP is nice, because it is one of those things you can buy, but it costs you something you can't buy - plane XP.  It's always nice to have the FXP when you've just got that T9 plane with all those 30k XP modules you have to grind before you can even think about grinding out the 150k+ plane XP to the T10 plane.

The bomber itself is an orbital kinetic platform which rains down awesome destruction over acres of pixel ground.  The guns absolutely melt away HFs, and simply delete LFs.  This plane will be the scourge of the T8 skies by the end of the month, and double flights of B-29s will cause people to drop to hangar - I guarantee it.  My first flight out was a Winged Legend on a map where the other team had two specialized HFs, with pilots that knew how to use them, while I was trying to carry a sack of potatoes.  Let's just say, that you need to figure out the correct approach angle for this plane, or the guns will just melt your HP to nothing.  Oh, and I'm not really a bomber pilot, so just think about what Zigfied, Prenzlau and Capt. HindGrinder are going to do with this beast.  Run and hide, folks...

Cheers!

Glenn

One of the above trio was describing in Clan chat just what they had been doing with theirs, and it was downright horrifying.  "9 turret kills, 11 assists, 20K+ points"   and "you can flip caps with the guns if you're out of bombs"  being two comments that come to mind.

 

My Pancake got deleted by a drive-by one game today.  Was just in the area, not even attacking.  *boom*

 

I got the fuselage unlocked today.

Just think what one of these guys would do at an airbase.   Can't cap an airbase with a bomber, huh?  Hold my beer...

It has come to my attention today that the cert package in the premium shop which had the full amount to get the bomber outright is now gone (270) and in its place is one for 200, which means having to buy more than one package to have the correct amount and some left over. Glad i got it early on and not waiting.

There's a limit of one per account, so if you already bought it you won't see it in the premium shop.  I haven't bought it yet, so I still see it.

To see it you have to be logged in.

Both Corsair4790805 and Viper_7242NC are correct. First of all, you need to be logged into the Premium Shop to see the bundle. Secondly, it's available for purchase only once per account.

Thank you for the clarification. Didn't realize it disappeared after purchase.
