I'd just like to see it more often. Also I would like to see it without it's shield most of the times, since it was originally intended to be an AA gun, not AT. Would be nice if FH2 had both models, with and without shields.

Yeh, especially when you're trying to shoot planes with one. Always changing views because the shield blocks everything. I usually have to wait until he comes directly at me before I pop one in his face.

When used as an AA gun it was designed for high level targets like B-17s. If FH only is going to have medium bombers as the largest aircraft(crosses fingers and hopes to god) then the 88mm will be useless as an AA gun. I would have to say I would much rather have the shield on it, though both shield and shieldless would be fine.

Id like to think that there were some pretty good points brought out as to why they should stay....why do you hate the big bombers so much.....

And there were some good points brought to why they shouldn't stay. Maps too small for them to be used to their full potentional, too easy for them to be shot down by AA guns or by other planes, unrealistic in the sense that big bombers weren't used as close air support as they are potrayed in the BF series, hard to create realistic bombing missions, and the sad fact that idiots love to just dive bomb and kamikaze them as they please. Making the 88 an even better AA gun by removing the shield will just spell doom for bomber pilots. I don't think any one really "hates" them per say, it's just that they don't really enjoy the idea of bombers being abused like hell/ being easy prey/ being portrayed unrealisticly/ becoming the tools of smacktards :/

I see what oldschool is saying, their use was more strategic than tactical.

giving the control of bombs to the navigator, plus making it not so easy to pull up after in said dives will dispel people from doing it in the future.

for dumb pilots yes, but Id like to think that most people playing FH2(much like in FH) are pretty level headed

If you make the B-17 a b*tch to fly than the smacktards would stray away from it. If implemented correctly, and not like any other aircraft, the B-17 can and should be an awsome experience for players

anyways Ive taken this thread to far ofcourse.....20 degrees starboard enson...Ill be in the other Bomber thread;)

I say a lot of things while playing FH, but I never say "Wow, those Flak 88mms are overpowered vs large bombers!"
