New aircraft

USA bomber line

The new bombers are not very manoeuvrable, but incredibly strong and well-protected aircraft with high survivability, loaded with a huge stock of large calibre bombs. These aircraft are perfectly suited for the rapid capture of well-protected sectors with a large number of objects. In a single pass, these machines can easily destroy a huge number of targets, and then on their way back, complete the task and wipe out the enemy’s buildings. In air combat, the most powerful turrets with reliable overlapping sectors of fire provide excellent protection against enemy fighters—any target at close range will be full of holes in a matter of seconds.

  • Boeing B-17D — USA, Tier V bomber;
  • Boeing B-17G — USA, Tier VI bomber;
  • Consolidated B-32 — USA, Tier VII bomber.

Japan heavy fighters line

Manoeuvrable heavy fighters with powerful heavy weapons, bombs, and turret gunners. Thanks to effective forward-firing and outboard weapons, these aircraft can be used to break through ground and air defence of sectors, resist bomber raids, and intercept attack aircraft. In air combat, their powerful large-calibre weapons are especially effective against large targets, but good handling and manoeuvrability make it possible to counter light fighters.

  • Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu — Japan, Tier V heavy fighter;
  • Kawasaki Ki-102 — Japan, Tier VI heavy fighter;
  • Rikugun Ki-93 — Japan, Tier VII heavy fighter.

I wish they would give some more details on this ...

The NA site says an operation order costs 5 tokens. But not how much time you have and how many tokens for skipping missions.

XB-32 was armed with eight .50 in (12.7 mm) machine guns in dorsal and ventral turrets, and an odd combination of two .50 caliber and one 20 mm (0.787 in) cannon in each outboard engine nacelle firing rearwards, plus two .50 caliber machine guns in the wings outboard of the propellers.[2] The turrets were remotely controlled from periscopic sights in aiming stations inside the aircraft. The sights were coordinated by a sophisticated analog computer system developed by Sperry Gyroscope Company.

 

Slim chance, I know, but oh boy would it be interesting for def :teethhappy:

All operation orders have same time line: 24 hours. You can extend it with tokens. 

 

Every time you have any order, you must take screenshot! Than you can return to your base of screen shots and have some sort of answers. 

 

Pe 2  cost 6+15+10 tokens. Middle mission is just grinding.

SB cost 4+8+6

Pe 2 M-82 cost 10+30+20
https://imgur.com/A0cl2aA

Ar-2 was 5+10+8 

https://imgur.com/1kBsbJg

 

I-211 was something around 200 tokens. If you are willing to go true 9-10 k of screen shots I am confident that you will find more precise answer. 

 

So cost in tokens is roughly equivalent to cost of premium plane of same tier.

Yep, those were reasonable prices. But what if they fondly remember this event from 2017? :hiding:

 

  • Blenheim IV (Tier III Bomber) - 72 Tokens = 3,600 Gold = $17.53
  • A-26B (Tier VI Bomber) - 252 Tokens - 12,600 Gold = $54,07
  • RB-17 (Tier VIII Bomber) - 780 Tokens - 39,000 Gold = $159.57

Don't fricking remind them. 

Those prises were 3 times higher than normal costs, but we did earn some discounts. 

 

New planes are tech tree planes. So if we don't get them with tokens, we will grind them regularly. 

 

When they were giving Soviet bombers, they gave premium camo, hangar and 5 points crew, so I was filling to spend few tokens to get those bonuses. If they put some crazy prise tag, I will exsersize patients.

Indeed.

I do not plan on getting all 6 of them with ops orders and tokens/missions. Unless they now come with special crew or camo.

Maybe just the Ki-45 and the B-17G ...

 

Someone put up hangar screenshots of all the new planes :

No B17F ? :( 

 

Hopefully we get a Memphis Belle premium at some point, now that would be bloody awesome.

Yep, a different ballgame. I like it.

 

Question: with the doubled bomb load, do we have two passes or the longer/denser one?

 

edit

Two passes.

Yep, and it was bloody expensive in tokens (lots and lots of missions). And I got the gold compensation.
