omg:eek: that's nice u got all the specs out, but what's B-17 speed in the game 1942? and is heavy weight a reason for it's slow acceleration?

I'd say the acceleration in the game is faster that it really was. There is no way this thing could get off the ground in as short of a distance as it does in the bocage map. The airfield on the desert one seems better for a bomber. I even think that they should have put the airstrip that the Germans have in Bocage on the American side for the bomber. If you let that thing speed up while it is on the ground, it does a hell of a lot better when you take off.

Actually the B-17G had only a 10 man crew.
