Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

I am not an expert on ww2 history, so I will not argue against you there. My personal hobby is aircraft design, so my interest in the Ju-88 comes from a technical perspective. So you might ask why the Ju-88 was a interesting design. When McDonnell Douglas marketed the F-4 Phantom, it was promoted as...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

Then just study this, read Wikipedia. the Ju-88 is credited with destroying the armored spearheads of advancing soviet armies. These are historical facts that disqualify your opinion.

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

Well, look at the combat records of Kg51,KG 54 and how they destroyed soviet tanks and trucks in the thousands before they were pulled away from the eastern front.

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

You are right Kondi about the Fw190 taking over the role of the Stuka. The Stuka however had a bigger brother in the Ju-88c that served as a ground attack aircraft until the Allied air campaign against Germany forced the Luftwaffe to pull them back from frontline service to defend the Reich. A role ...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

Me-410, Arado or Ju-88, they all work for me. As long as we get a tactical bomber that can survive a deep strike mission with escort, or close support unescorted where it can return to base in one turn, I am happy. Nice that we all see the need for a better tactical bomber for Germany, and can sugge...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

To understand what the ju-88 was, you have to look at how it was designed. The reason I said "you are confusing the ju-88 for the ju-88" is that it was 2 types of aircraft in one. From the beginning, it was designed for dive bombing. To be able to do this it needed stronger wings than a level bomber...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

Well, the fact that Germany produced 900 ju-88 c6 suggest that it was a good ground attack aircraft. However, you may note that I wrote "or similar" in the title. This reflects the fact that we in this game have to use a Stuka to bomb allied ships while being attacked by Gloster Meteors. This is whe...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

No, you are simply unaware of the history of the ju-88. Did you know that it had dive brakes, and was developed and tested with dive bombing in mind ? And i am still trying to make the developers aware of a hole in the game, where Germany still has no survivable late war bomber. Something that was n...

Re: This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

I believe you are confusing the ju-88 with the ju-88, a common mistake. There was a version with solid nose, heavy guns, rockets, better armour and bigger engines. It was used extensively for ground attack. Since the me-410 has been slotted as a fighter it really is the best late war German Zerstore...

This game needs a Ju-88 or similar tactical bomber.

Like the title says, we need a more modern tactical bomber than the Stuka. It really is a hole in the line after 1942, when it was obsolete.

Re: Mapview is suddenly pulling to the right no matter what

Having the exact same issue so it is likely related to the game. No biggie but looking forward to a patch to make the game playable again. (changing PPI did not work)

Re: Core army import tool.

Thanks for the advice, appreciate it. As it is, the whole process is somewhat difficult and counter-intuitive. Hope they come up with something better for later blitzkrieg expansions.

Re: Useless tanks.

We are not discussing if tanks should be supply immune like in PG, where they can operate alone like satellites. This is for a limited number of turns only, where you can use your tank to flank an enemy defence line. Strangely, the only current unit you can use in this role, are the paratroopers.

Re: Useless tanks.

Great, you had the exact same idea as me. Must be good then ;) Have you tried getting 4 paratroopers and 2 anti tank guns instead of 4 tanks. Might be worth a try.

Useless tanks.

So, just played trough Blitzkrieg and had a nice time, overall the game is still good. However, hunting down and killing a large numbers of enemies is a bit boring and i hope you reduce this in the future. But for me the biggest issue is the uselessness of tanks with the current system. As it is now...
