At least make the missions simultaneous. Getting 4-5 Kozedubs until you actually need it then failing for 6 hours just kills any desire someone might have to play this game. And skip for money....not going to happen... i rather skip the plane altogether. I understand grind based like WoT marathons, you can think in advance how much you need to spend for it and decide if you going to buy a part of it. But RNG based, failing to progress because RNG....not going to happen. You can shove the plane where sun dont shine if i get stuck on the way because of some stupid medal.

I'm pretty sure about XB-35 and YB-49 being US tier 9 and 10.

In some previous conversation about incoming US high tiers bombers Blinfoid said "...and you will get the iconic US bombers..." , something along these lines as a response to someone's "I want B-29". And liked my conclusion about the Northrops.

 

Now since ingame tier VII B-32 surpasses B-29, my guess is B-29 will be a premium VII or VIII with a month's campaign for it.  The Liberator stayed behind in timeline, so what can be Tiers 8, 9 and 10? The two Northrop flying wings - propeller and jet - are obvious contenders, and I would like very much to have six turnin' four burnin' Convair B-36 as tier 9. Slowish and clumsy and fat (like all US bombers) but all with devastating carpet bombing pass. So I would like to see this:

 

Tier 8   XB-35

Tier 9   B-36

Tier 10 YB-49

I'm not even going to open that ops order. That's only for players who are flying 20 hours a day.

 

But the rating for special projects sounds good. I've got all the previous ones.

Tier 10 YB-49

 

XB-35/YB-49 are out of the B-17 bomber trend. I think we can see XB-35 or YB-49 as a premium plane and there are really loads of options for the tech tree:

Tier 8: B-29

Tier 9: B-36

Tier 10: B-47

The B-50, YB-60 and B-52 are candidates for tiers 8, 9 and 10 or they may displace some of the above.

Agree on Northrops being different birds altogether. But in your tier order it bugs me to see B-29 coming after B-32. It should be the other way around - but they can push B-32 to tier 8 and insert B-29 in 7, they've done this many times in Tanks and Ships.

 

In some previous conversations i said to blindfoid "oh, so we'll see the famous Northrop's flying wings" and kinda got the confirmation by like. I'm basing my assumptions on this, but wouldn't mind your order one bit.

 

And B-52 is an overkill, although started in 1952 it's more Vietnam stuff not Korea.

And still flying. I added it, because it's roughly from the same years.

If memory serves, B-29 and B-32 were planes built according to the same specs, the same Gov't issued order, only by different companies. It's hard to say one precedes another, they were very close competitors in the same period of time. One was chosen for mass-production, and that's how we remember Enola Gay being the silver bullet thing :)

You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day

:honoring: I stand corrected. A good find, now there's no need to reorder.

 

wiki:

B-32 was developed by Consolidated Aircraft in parallel with the Boeing B-29 Superfortress as a fallback design should the B-29 prove unsuccessful.

>long range sniper cannons

>high speed

my body is ready for this J8M/Ta 152 hybrid

 

also sounds like we'll be getting a special project for the sight to add even more accuracy, I wonder how much higher I can get it

A new patch, good to hear. Is there any chance so the disconnect-after-battle-madness will end eventually? Since last patch I can barely play 3 battles without having to login again. I'm not ready to continue wasting my precious time with that :angry:
