Surely the next line? How many Iconic British Bombers do WG need to be reminded of to get this sorted?

Whitleys/Hampdens at the low tiers, Then classic mediums like the Wellington...oh and Why doesn't this game already have a Lancaster?!?!? Criminal.!

Top Tiers have room for the V-Bombers like the Vulcan etc.

A lonely Blenheim just isn't doing Bomber Command justice now is it?....

How many games do you need to play in order to realize that wg does not develop this game anymore? And these are not my words but the words of the ceo of wwp. We are just keeping this game alive for the die hard few. So just play for as long as this thing lasts and don't expect much.

But they introduced a new plane very recently, did they not? 
I expect they keep the game alive because it's profitable to do so, primarily.

Only they would have to introduce night only maps for british night only bombers.

With mainly 7,7mm MG armament it would be slaughter.

I don't see why. It's not as if this game is faithful to historical fact. For example, there are planes in this game that never went into production for active service in real life.

Because, if they put Wellington at say tier V it would be complete sitting duck.

I am not saying it due to historical fact, but analogy- british bombers ended up as nightbombers, because they could not survive day bombing.

Same would happen in the game, unless bombers get completely un-historical weapons. Players would quickly learn that from distance more than 400m the bomber is harmless.

It'd be ok, it had a rear, front and top turret plus some had side guns in the rear fuselage, similar defensive output to the German line I'd have thought.

 

Could perhaps give the Brits extra altitude performance to counter the weaker guns, or more accurate/powerful bombs and/or faster bomb reloads perhaps. 

 

Be great to see them in the game (well, great as far as boring bombers go).

Just checked Wikipedia, some Wellys had the 40mm cannon seen on the Hurricane IId fitted, that'd solve the defense issue, on that one at least :D

Totaly different to throw in one new plane and a whole new story to introduce a new line of planes. They do not have the developers and the support in wwp to do this. As for profits this game is kept alive for prestige purposes and is helped by the other games of wg. Again these are not my words but those of  the ceo.

I have a strong feeling that the twilight hours of this game will look like this - about 100 active players, each playing bombers exclusively, each getting into one another perhaps once a week. No more bombers, please......

Bombers in general, regardless of nationality were more vulnerable during daytime ops, right? WG hasn't felt it necessary to create special nighttime operations for the benefit of any of the current lineup of bombers in the game, have they? And since WG doesn't adhere to historical accuracy, they can, if necessary, modify a plane's service ceiling, guns, armour, bomb loadout etc, to suit a specific tier, and then even label it an experimental version, if desired, yes?

You can't. The comment refers to a game played by outgrown children. All respect FOR WW2 veterans. My great-grandfather fought against the communists.
