Very much looking forward to this. I am very impressed with the team on this sim

I am not in a hurry for 1.016 as my G940 has had to go back for repairs . . .

I'm trying to imagine the logistics of parking at the airstrips. Bring it on:)

Note for beta testers: spawning in dogfight MP must be tested carefully. :D

Awesome. I also love the new sun glare effect; a 200% improvement.

Yes, I'm actually happier about that than the bomber itself :D

If you're planning on coming out of the sun I only fly in cloudy weather ;)

Even the bombs are historicaly modelled:

How many BOMBs does she carry ?

"In addition to its defensive armament, the 0/ 400, in comparison to other World War I bombers, carried an exceptionally heavy bomb load. Normally, the airplanes was loaded with sixteen 112-pound or eight 250-pound bombs inside the fuselage, with two additional bombs carried on external racks. On occasion, however, the heavy bomber was armed with a single 1,650-pound bomb–the largest ever employed by Royal Air Force (RAF) in World War I.

This blockbuster was used effectively on the night of September 13-14, 1918, when a single 0/ 400 of the 207th bomber squadron dropped one on the railway yards at Le Cateau, France."

Very cool! looking forward to bombing the cr*p out of some central targets! This will give a whole new meaning to vulching! Imagine 3 of these dropping 48 (16 X 3) bombs on something - pow sucka! :D

Really nice. Like the new Sunglaring effect!
Will definaltely buy this!
Well, i hope we will get the German bomber with the same patch. Would be a little disturbing if allies, that already have bombs get even more and the germans again go off empty.

They already anounced the Gotha GV if i am not wrong. Just the lack of pictures makes me nervous about its release within the next patch.

looks great jason, any news on the gotha?

Unfortunately it looks like the Gotha will not be in 1.016.

Jason

Sorry to hear that.

If you have no data about the cockpit you can do another german bomber.
There is the Friedrichshafen G.III (or IIIa) and the AEG G.IV.

Well, sad to hear… No bombs again for germany. Well we´re used to that. As long as the missionmakers dont create missions in wich germans have to destroy bridges with their guns we´ll be fine.

Yes, AEG G.IV would be a good choice (320 built)

On Aircraft Number 172 squadron/signal pubblications - "German Bombers of WWI in action" you can find detailed information of Cockpit of many bombers including Gotha V ;)

Impressive work indeed. Another great WIP. We are all looking foward to having those bombers in the game. Sunglare is another great feature that ads realism to the game.

I said the Gotha wouldn't make 1.016. I did not say never. It's planned for 1.017. It's just a time and resource issue. We know the germans need a ground pounder.

So the Germans who have zero bombers got put back for later…?

hmmm I guess I am not understanding that at all.

We have been waiting to get some idea of a bomber on the german side and still nothing but, allied side gets yet another plane that can bomb.

Don't get me wrong im up for any planes that are otw to us but I don't understand why you didn't go towards getting the germans a bomber to make it possible to have a nice war where bombers can be used by humans.

Good pics and great plane to add to the collection.

No offense but how often do bombs even come into play currently? I would not get upset or irritated over another allied plane with bombs. The Germans didn't load bomb racks to my knowledge on our scout planes I think some may have been hand dropped so it kinda limits the possibilities of bombing. But it is a great plane and will add a lot of fun to online play, don't worry :)
