B29's should be included, but only on maps where destroying a certain building or fortification destroys the enemy spawn points, and forces them to retreat to the next strategic object, at the same time ground forces could capture the building and secure it for themselves.

Tanked;4547511I 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!?"

Way to go calling the devs idiots, there.

The Devs have priorities - namely release 2.15, release Normandy, expand Normandy/Africa, then sit back and decide what's next. Strategic bombers, as stated, have no place on ground warfare maps - did you not read that bit in this thread? They would require purpose-built maps like Bombing the Reich, something the devs have not ruled out but say are very far down the priorities list - look at how many people truly liked Bombing the Reich in FH1 for why.

I do think the Battle of Britain will turn up sooner, though - as stated it did not involve strategic bombers, so planes like the Ju88 and He111 can be used on ground maps too, the latter especially on early war maps.

As I understand, strategic bombers would not be included in upcoming release, but not in game at all.

We don't plan that far ahead. ;)

There might be strategic bombers in FH2 one day, but we haven't got any plans for them at the moment.

And what about ships? I saw some ships in game archives (ArkRoyal, Audacity) and Sub VIIB already coded for game, but it doesn't appear in any map. Do you plan some ship battle maps like "Rheinuebung"?
