AR2 is pretty good,but PE serie is orrible.Not so fast or so high to evade,not enough bombs to shoot down a cap,not good defense.Very bad planes for bombing.Seems bad heavy fighters

Only russian  tier VIII is good.

IMO the german bombers are a pretty solid pick, though they only get really good at the tier 6. Also, the tier 3 UK Blenheim IV is an excellent aircraft, but its a premium. 
You can get it at a 50% discount next week, meaning it'll only cost 550 gold (you might even have that from the starter missions) or 2,70eu. Very enjoyable plane, even if its only a tier 3. 

I think for the regular ones the Russian bombers are simply outclassed by GA counterparts, while US bombers have a harder focus on guns than the germans do- but the german bombers simply rely on speed and altitude not to get caught- which is a healthy habit for bombers IMO

P.S. This is I_Y speaking again, but i'm logged in on wrong account again lol :child:

 But it's tier 3, so no medals and tokens :coin:

Thanks for all the replies chaps, I really appreciate you all taking the time to help me out :).  There's a lot of useful info in here for me so I'll see if I can take it in and apply it in game.  I think I'll start with the US bombers and then onto the German ones after.  By the sound of it there are differences in game play across the different lines so I guess it's going to be useful to try a few different tech trees.

 

Cheers

Check this: https://worldofwarplanes.eu/news/air-raid-2019/

You may want to play with the germans first, because of the rewards this weekend.

A big cadeau for heavies....;) ace every battle.

 

I think this will be a  crap,because all players will go with bombers and all the battles will be annoying with usual race to take for first targets.Only 2 planes is very conditioning.

I love the Tupolev SB at tier 3, quiet flight at 2500 meters, 6 sufficiently precise bombs, and fast reload.

You shouldnt be playing any bomber, because they shouldn't be in this game. It should be a game of airplanes fighting , and bombers are playing their own game. I know, tactical choices , teamwork bla bla. But lets be realistic, nobody care about bombers, other than some people trying to climb to insane altitudes just to hate kill them. Nobody escort them , and to play one is boring as hell, because you have only two options. You either climb to maximum altitude you can and miss most of your drops ( but thats all you do just cruise and drop bombs every now and then ), or you stay at decent altitude, and the game will send a dedicated heavy fighter bot to frustrate you all the game. Or the defending ADA beaufighters from hell.
