For recon and bomber pilots... the bigger the map, the better. :P

Assuming we had a recon and/or bomber, that is. :roll:

If they managed it then imagine SoW with Lancaster and B-17 Bombers roaming free. Only thing is who is flying the 8-hour missions!

Maybe it could be done in shifts! At least if there was a B-24 you'd have auto-pilot!

Think of the opportunities for seaplanes! Ha, you could patrol in a Sunderland looking for downed pilots and crew!

Reminds me of the "Lighthouse Project". This was a crazy XVII Flottille plan (back in the days when we sailed Silent Hunter III) to have a LAN-party and sail a Type-II U-Boat in a real-time patrol, taking it in shifts to take watch, manage the engines, and deal with the Navigation. Probably just as well that it didn't happen...

Already doing it. Although it is with the He-115 that I built for X-Plane.


On a more relevant note, does anyone know if the Combined Arms (CA) module have the ability to command flights of aircraft. I am wondering if CA could be used to provide some level of air-marshcal control fo AI flights. Certainly having that capacity (and a logistics model to go with it) would allow a much more realistic bomber programme to set against defending fighter squadrons.

Yes, with CA you can give orders to flight of a/c or ground units or ships.

+1 Thurmann as well!!
8 hours is nothing if you are organised.
As Dietrich knows some Silent Hunter missions went on for 12 or more hours.
My only concern would be the need for an autopilot as hands on stick for that amount of time is unhealthy.

This is starting to look more and more like they want to shift to a Star Citizen funding model.........

Well, I've been working on a concept for an 8th Airforce campaign, I thought I'd run a special mission as a start:

The Mighty Eighth: Target Berlin.

We could escort B-17s from England to about the area on the map of Berlin and back. For additional immersion, pilots would need to acquire a bleach bottle, a funnel and a length of PVC hose. You would also be required to pack a box lunch for the flight. Now I know where to find pilots crazy enough to try it.

30 players in a geographic region anywhere in the globe with smart spawn placement sounds like a wet dream. You could concievably train your 8 members in hornets at say Cold Lake. Then do a deployment to say the baltics or mideast.
