Hi all,

here's an oldie (almost 50 yo) straight from WoT, where I have 10+k battles and just wanted to take a break here in the skies.

 

Immediately bought He 111 H-2 Prem, as I plan to slowly work and learn my way up the Bombers tier.

Why bombers, because I've been impressed with these beasts for ages, and why this line: this Tier IV Prem looks like good value for money and it seems to be a classic, hi-alt bomber to push me a few credits more.

 

Don't plan to have a whole fleet of various planes in WoWP (WoT is main game after all, lol) but am looking forward seeing you in the skies!

Welcome.

As zen said above: feel free to ask.

The community is quite helpful in general and/or can point you to a topic somewhere else for some answers/clues.

Welcome. You should try Blenheim tier 3 bomber. More fun.

Agree that it’s more fun, but note that you can’t get any epic medals (Thunder, Winged Legend etc) below Tier 4

Hi there, GoGen

 

Yes this game is a nice distraction from tanks far more relaxed community

 

I too have returned after a sabbatical

 

Yes there are some nice planes to choose from. I took like the look of the He 111 H-2 it will make a good crew trainer for the Gerry tech tree bombers.

 

 

Feel free to ask any advice for crew skills and equipment. I'm on tier 10 for the soviet bomber line and the skills and equipment are pretty close.

With the crew purge in WOT coming I plan to migrate to ships and planes. Had issues with WOWP before where it would crash way more often than WOT, hopefully it wont happen now.

It certainly is, many times I posted with my wiki research account the discussion degraded into "but your stats".

Crew except the commander is going to be removed so you get a situation like in WOWS.

I'm just wondering for all the years of training up crews, which amount to a lot of moving crews around tanks and premium tanks and lately buying crew training books....how this will translate into one commander and keep me smiling.

Hey there,

I am trying to make my way up the german bomber line. I'm really struggling though... Right now I'm at tier 7. Is the Ju 288 A any good? It seems to be an eays kill for any HF, MRF and even F. Ok, it's quite fast and 8 bombs are ok but reloading time and its self defense is so weak (fully upgraded). The russian bombers seem so OP in comparison, especially in self defense. Are you shooting manually or let your gunner do the work? Any tips for gunner skills to make him at least a little bit better? Thanks

 I'm at tier 7 myself. It's a paper plane, you have virtually no tailgunner except for low HPs bots and the bombs are powerful allright, but inaccurate as hell, hence is not flexible at all in terms of tactics.

Usually i climb at max optimal altitude, then put the plane in a shallow dive towards the target in order to be on it at max 1600/1700 mts at full speed. 

Don't do it on crowded bases, if practicable (cit. (those in love with the American Civil War will understand)), or prepare for lots of respawns.

Would that be General Lee and the Gettysburg bloodbath? Not that I'm in love with this particular war, but my memory is overloaded with trivia :)
