So YB-40 aka B-17 Gunship

 

 

No bombs

 

But has were the radio gun is with another dorsal gun turret 2 50cals on each waist gun point and a chin turret

 

I think interesting for 1.35 tiers T11 or T3 for 1.37

 

Opinions?

 

And I have not found anything about this before and or on the tech tree

There is quite a few threads down in the USA technical service section on this plane. About three or four recently.

It serves no real use, but I'd love to see it. I think clans that practice bombing doctrine would go ape shit for it.

The wiki says it was meant to be a bomber escort (18+ .50 cals with 10,000+ ammo) but temporary until the mustangs came in, it is a b-17 but without bombs so it would die faster than the b-17 we already have, if it had 20mm I would be interested but I don't think it would help our situation.

the thing also flew worse than a fully loaded b-17, so your climb rate would suck and you'd probably be a sitting duck 90% of the time, and not the german kind either. it would be fun though, especially low level strafing of ground targets. if they included it, the cost of purchase/training would have to be low, as well as the repair costs.

I heard it only flew worse after the completion of the bomb run, where as it was to heavy to keep up with the rest.
