Not a suggestion or a criticism or whatnot, just an opinion; DAMN THEY'RE FUN. Flying a Lancaster on BtR just earlier, I realized how awesome it is when you have a bunch of gunners, and dogfights are going on all around you, with mad closing speeds, fighters going at it and making passes, and you have this massive beast cruising through it all.

I know these don't have much of a place in any tactical scenario, but for pure aerial action I really really really really really hope the nice devs find a way to put Lancasters, B-17s, and whatever other BIG MAMAS in :-)

I love bombers too :D Easiest way for me to get an uber score on Bombing the Reich :p

I would be a gunner in the bomber if it wasn't for the fact you have to be really skilled & lucky to kill anything.

You know what would be better? Civilian planes! Instead of bombs you drop breath masks, instead of machine gun you' d have turbolence and instead of gunner positions you' d have hostess!

And instead of gunners, stewardesses....

But I agree with Fuzzy on this map, big bombers are hugely fun. :)

I just wish the bombers could take a TEEENSY bit more damage before they flame out. Seems like everytime i get into an Aircow, one good pass from a fighter and I'm turned into a flaming comet.

Big bombers are tremendously fun. I love manning the tailgun on the B-17 in Battle of Midway or the Lanc on BtR. My first tailgun kill i was so proud, took down a marauding Zero.

I agree, I love to tailgun. Ohh man and the bomber gunner fights are Flippin AWSOME. I agree, its one of the best ways to use teamwork in FH right now. I mean your literally saving your pilots ass. I would also like to see more versions of the b-25

^^^ totally agreed. Just a _bit_ more damage would be nice, yeah.
