I know this has been discussed a few times, but people seem to only make reference to it. Could someone tell me what it is/what it does.

I haven't seen it in game, although on Sector 318 I was playing as Germans and noticed a huge red plane (B17 size) on the mini-map. Is that it?

Thanks.

Air Support kit basically spawns a C47 and makes you the pilot. Attached to the C47 is a Waco glider that people can spawn into from the spawn selection menu. The pilot of the glider can detach the Waco at anytime and then glide to wherever he wants.

The bomber kit basically spawns you in a bomber with bombing sights, you can control the direction the bomber flys, but not its altitude. When you come across a good location, just drop your bombs. Minimap is usually required to fly since it really is only good for bombing flags or other static enemy positions.

Ok how about a definitive answer to the question if you can reload the kits. Or once you've used them the 3 times? The kit is exhausted. I've done my spotting my an ammo crate and that didnt seem the reload it. There is also a way to exit the view without being thrown (otherwise killed)

I don't believe you can reload without picking up another kit. Even if there was a way to reload it, it would take longer than would be practical to wait.

No reload. If you aim the binoculars higher, the plane will fly lower (to a limit), if you aim lower the plane will come in higher.

Ah, thanks. I was wondering how that worked. Never saw any difference.
