Ohhhh.....the dive bombing version of the Stuka dive bomber.   Lots of folks are going to like this.

I will revisit the Stuka if I can get that plane! Never understood why the tech tree didn't have bombs.

The funny thing is, I rather enjoyed the Ju 87 G when I was grinding it (along with the Hs 129 B).   But then, overall I enjoyed the 109 F and I'm enjoying the 109 G, so maybe I'm just weird in the head :)

 

Agree that the classic dive bomber version of the Ju 87 dive bomber could be a ton of fun.   I wonder if they can include some sort of buff to reflect the improved accuracy of dive bombing, vs just flinging your bombs somewhere?

...and then the SC1000 has 120 sec or higher reload effectively render it moot...:sceptic:

Well, the Stuka is pretty slow, so itll reload by the time it gets to the next sector.

 

How about a SC500 with a 20 second reload?

It'd be great to see the other dive bombers in the game, like the Dauntless and Val.

This is all well and good but why have there been no new multirole fighters added? What about planes like the F6F hellcat (could be tier 6) or the F8F bearcat (could be tier 8). Just some ideas and these wouldn't even be that hard to add TBH.

Probably same as the Pe-2's, they are far more accurate/effective (and vulnerable) when dive-bombing.

They're perhaps setting it up for October 1st.

Yeah... the skirt mounted sirens were a Stuka trademark. That would be cool. In game description should read "Activates when in dive greater than 45 degrees and near max dive speed"
Those sirens were part of the terror campaign inherent to the Blitzkrieg.

Saw my picture in the paper
Read the news around my face
And now some people
Don't want to treat me the same

Some people say I'm obnoxious and lazy
That I'm uneducated and my opinion means nothin'
But I know I'm a real good dancer

I've noticed ALOT of blue bot teammates colliding with my planes since the update, mainly on turns.
