I was thinking that people can be a bombadeer, pilot/navigator, and gunners on the big planes and the bombadeer can have a bomb sight for more accurate bombing and the pilot won't have a gun because isn't that the gunners' job I was wondering what you guys think about this and is this possible for .63?

Bombadier would be nice as its pretty hard to do high level bombing as the bombs seem to go way off target, I normally have to dive on them. Navigator isn't needed as you have a minimap and enough gunners are already in place.

That might be tough because I don't think a bombadier target would be as easy as sticking in a static reticule - things such as the plane's speed, angle, etc. would all have a profound effect on where the bombs landed, so I don't think a simple static overlay would do the trick, and I also doubt the engine's capability to conform to providing something dynamic for that purpose.

Bad idea.

Imagine trying to calaborate with someone on your team through typing in the chat and flying a plane at the same time so that he knows when to drop the bombs. Imagine trying to bomb a target if you're the only one on the plane because noone else want's to get in the plane with you....

It would totally turn people away from using bombers, sorry.

Also, not sure if you know this but bomb sights work only if you are able to adjust for speed and elevation so it won't be accurate without these features...

so your saying my idea requires too much teamwork for what FH has to offer? maybe this idea would add teamwork to fh

This was brought up in the past for (heavy) level bombers, like the B17 but also the medium HE 111, maybe the Betty bomber too.

Not for tactical bombers like the Ju 88, B25 and B26.

But the bomber's navigator aiming the bombsight would also have to take over limited control over the bomber itself while aiming the bombsight.....else he cannot aim the bombs !

But the foreward/down view must be limited this guy cannot fly the bomber in normal flight around the map......it should only allow to fly the bomber correct just before and above the target.

I think this can be done by the devs without sdk......if only they wanted to/have time to do so. All that is needed is a pilot positon with the view aimed forward/down. ( but cannot look straight ahead or above ) and ofcourse a visor in that view.

It would not turn people away from bombers if it is only used by level bombers, not attack/tactical bombers. Another advantage is that levelbomber will be used more correctly, fly generally higher and attack area's, not single tanks.

That way the B17 wil have a usefull role again in FH........there were people who said it should be taken out of FH, but they are wrong....

How many people do you think will actually spend time FLYING the plane while the bomber gets all the kills? All that flying around for nothing...right? What it comes down to is that people want to have a good score.

That is why it is amazing why DICE still never introduced the "shared kill" inside the same vehicle.

It would improve teamwork lightyears.........

Agreed^

I wouldn't mind if there was some sort of shared kill type of thing. But nooooo....Dice has to go on ahead and be silly. :p

I don't know, enough people fly the AC-130 in DC. Pilots don't get points for flying that.

Might make it more effective if the nose came view was point down at an angle, if that is possible.
