    Hell of a lot of fun, though when I'm in a bomber and see a red beaufighter I get this nervous tic.

    I've been playing British planes almost exclusively and I have to say that I love the Beaufort. It doesn't have a huge arsenal (when leveled up you can get two 500 lb bombs or my beloved torpedo) but it is fast and fairly agile for its size. There's no forward gun, so you're not distracted on bombing runs and if a fighter is on your tail, using F6 to take over the machine gun is fun.

    You know, like Caine in Kung Fu...
    open beta now, and it seems we can spend real money...perhaps an actual division for this seems proper. no NDA either (the place-holder flight models on some aircraft...deplorable).

    in game Mach5, and i am truly awful, presently...

    Hope so.

    I'm puzzled why they have so many place-holder FM's given their previous work with the IL-2 series.

    I've been concentrating on the US fighters, when I force myself to use slashing B&Z tactics rather than get into turning fights I do pretty well. If you can get enough of a lead to get a few sustained bursts into turning aircraft the .50cals are good at seperating wings.

    Other than that, tearing through the middle of a dogfight and landing hits on 3 or 4 aircraft before breaking out the other side, getting some altitude and repeating the process pays off in terms of XP from assists and the odd kill.

    Of course, if you attract the attention of one of the Russian or German UFO's you're toast :D

    New planes were bombing the compound of 4 countries:
    Became available for the Japanese "top" bombers - G5N, G8N. The first plane, being the largest aircraft in the game, able to carry four plain bomb.
    And his older brother, G8N though capable of carrying a bomb load of 3 tons, but has three cannons in defensive turrets.
    American branch have added a B-25. This legendary aircraft successfully entered between the A-20 and B-17, with six guns offensive weapons, and 1.5 tons of bombs.
    The ranks of German planes expanded line of multipurpose aircraft Do.217: from Do.217E-2 c-ton load to the night interceptor Do.217N-1 c with 4 guns MG 151.
    Soviet Tu-2 lineup now includes recent modifications, which allow higher booking.

    A post from the Dev forums about realistic bombing.
    Translation isn't the best but it will do.

    Certainly realistic bombing affect gameplay.
    - It is impossible to dive and drop bombs on the target.
    - You can not drop bombs on turns.

    Now to reset the beavers have to fly only horizontally (almost). Thus:
    - Beavers would be more difficult to hit moving targets.
    - Is a risk that the purpose to which the bomb dropped from a height, will hit the fighter or attack aircraft (high probability).
    - Now the beavers will take less than ground targets that affect the return (unless the final new economy will be in favor of beavers).
    - I have not noticed that the beavers are tenacious.

    For me, this innovation at the moment uncomfortable, but I think it is right and it is a plus.
    - Realistic (not argue with that. Pity that it was not introduced from the start)
    - Prolong the fighting, as the pile of beavers can no longer make a couple of minutes nazemku.
    - Reduce or disappear bombers who dive beaver taking packs of ground targets and are killed in a pile of enemies.

    Neutral point: drop interest playing beaver, which will reduce their population in the fighting (Those who are left to fly beaver thrills of time and adapt to the changes.)

    I don't think the Russian is translating quite right... :w

    But please, please, please let the economy change make missions worth playing!

    I'm also hopeful for the new damage models (especially if they make bombers more durable).

    It sounds like dive bombing has been nerfed though.

    Wonder when we can expect the patch. Thank**** there is something between the A-20 and the B-17. What an empty tree that is.
