That is one beautiful B-17! Too bad that's not a flyable model. I would love to re-create some old Microprose B-17 missions and feel....in a very updated graphic environment.

TBH, I flew the B-17 is sims so much in the 90s, to this day I still have little desire to fly them again. Ditto most of the WWII bombers like the He-111 and Ju-88 (although that one can be ok from time to time).

I would like escort/intercept missions with them, however.

Starting to look really good. But I'm forbidding myself to get excited - who knows when we will actually fly over that.

Damn, I can't wait to put 200 of those B-17's in the mission editor.

Amazing how far technology has come and that I actually live to see it

What would be great is the ability in this to play multiplayer, with a multiplayer crewed bomber, escorted by people such as yourself. I too played much of iL2 (or maybe it was EAW?) when it first released and their bombers, but never really liked them as much as the fighters or ground attack aircraft. It just seems that with tech being what it is now, with VR maturing and machines that support VR graphics, would be great to climb into a bomber again with more immersion than the past, same thing with the fighter cockpits as well.

This was possible in 1997/98's Air Warrior and Warbirds Online - and not limitet do <100 players per server of actual multiplayer.

B-17 II was supposed to offer that before they killed MP. frown

Even though Il-2 and CFS3 offered it, I don't think I ever got to fly that way. Either we were all in separate planes, or we all flew in one.

Yeah, but that was all strictly multiplayer and I shied away from them back then. Now, with much faster data speeds, better computers and more immersion, multiplayer certainly has my interest piqued. Plus there's the added benefit of now going into single player if I get tired of multiplayer and still operate the same game.

That B-17 Air Base would give me the impression that we're getting part of England, too. No B-17's were based in Normandy. Are we? Will we be able to fly across the Channel to France from England? If yes, THAT would be terrific.

Yes, a part of southern England will be included.

Looking good, though I would have though the B17's would have come from Anglia not the South of England. Most of the bases in the South were dedicated to ground attack/glider tugging during D-Day i.e. Typhoons?

Yup 2TAF RAF and the US 9th AF.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.
