Would be the strategic bombers (B 17, B 29, He 111, etc), battleships (Tirpitz, Yamato, etc) and carriers in future releases of FH2

I think I remember the dev(s) saying there won't be any B17/B29 and etc strategic bombers in Fh2.

So such maps as "Battle of Britain" and "Bombing the Reich" would not be in the FH2?

the DEVS never said anything about no strategic bombers in FH2, so there is still a possiblility og maps like that

They did, actually. Strategic Bombers (B17, B29, Lancaster) would never be used in combat on the scale that we see in FH2 - they were STRATEGIC bombers, targeting STRATEGIC targets like factories, docks etc. With this in mind, McGibs and others have said that strategic bombers are unlikely, and will certainly not appear on maps based around land battles (no more B-17 flying around El Alamein, for example).

The Battle of Britain however featured tactical bombers used in strategic roles - so planes like the Heinkel 111 (a tactical, not strategic, bomber) and Ju88 (an all-rounder) will more than likely be in FH2 and thus a Battle of Britain map is a strong possibility.

Like Meadow said, they did. I would find it for you but Its prolly long gone. People mix up tactical and strategic bombers.

I know some b-17 was use in pacific like a tactical bomber (midway for exemple). I think seeing one b17 there will be great, but a think what it will be cool is to see some wreck b-17 and or/ static b17 and b29. I hope to see b-17 in one map like midway.

The B-29 would be awesome to use. Or at least see debris of, somewhere.

So such vehicles can be in the game only as a special planes in special maps (as "Bombing the Reich", "Midway", etc)

I never use aircraft in FH, but the devs limiting themselves by not including strategic bombers is utter idiocy... though I probably wouldn't fly them I'd love to see Lancasters and B29s in FH2.

I think most people don't mind at the moment that heavy bombers won't be included, but once this mod has become more complete by including the fronts, maps, armies and weapons that everyone wants to see, the only noticable thing missing will be strategic bombers, and its at this point we'll hear a growing chorus of voices asking "where are the bombers!?"
