Looks like we got a new FRB map cool! So what's everyone's strategy so far? Favorite planes and tactics to win/get major xp?

This map has been a challenge for me bombing so far. You can't come in low any more like you could on Kuban, there's no mountains to mask you from all the AAA, it will shred you to pieces in a fighter bomber. Divebombing has worked better, I'm sure high level bombing is effective but I just unlocked the he-111 (I'm still pretty low rank) so can't wait to try that out tonight.

I've been flying fighter more on this map, I like to climb up real high and try and down the recon planes. I think it's a secondary objective. Something cool happened last night the other team killed all our recon planes and the enemy tank positions vanished from the map, pretty cool and adds a great gameplay strategy.

I set gun convergence to 400 and go the the scouts first. There are great air battles at 20,000 feet.

Good stuff to know thanks. I think I had my convergence too low, setup for fighters and was getting hit by their tailgunners moving in too close. I tried to come up from under them but the Beaufighter gunner has some range.

After getting mowed down by AAA many times this weekend trying to bomb at low levels I opted for some high level heavy bombing. The flak and aaa is less heavy up here it's great.

But... I climbed up to about 3-5k, from this altitute I could not see any of the tanks or aa targets in bombsight view, even when zoomed in. Is this a game engine limitation similar to IL2 or is it intentional? Would giving points to the stats "Keen Vision" and the other vision ability help me see targets from higher up? Or should I adjust my graphic sliders? I already play with everything on high or very high, but noticed the sliders aren't all the way to the right in the graphics options.

Would increasing one of these sliders help me see better? Or do I just need to put more points in the two vision abilities?
