They just do not let us give everyone that informations :) NDA - non-disclosesure agreement... Google it for more...

I think i can only say that now I know why they named it "Flying Fortress" :)

There are screenshoots on mainpage

All we can say is; It flys- It's big- It's American.

And americans seemed to love turrets everywhere in ww2.

And I actualy doubt that a single b17 was without nose or tail art in ww2.

Whats a duracell commercial got to do with this? Anyway why isnt the b-17 never featured in any of the user made youtube clips ? Ive seen just about every single aircraft featured , but the b-17 seems to be passed over every single time.

By entering the Closed Beta of Warthunder you agree to the Non-Disclosure Agreement.

No information is to be provided about the game outside of the Closed Beta section of the forum.

It is clearly written at the top of the open forum, you have to read it.

LA VERDAD ES QUE EL B17 G EN EL JUEGO TIENE UN GRAN PROBLEMA CON LA TORRETA DE ABAJO NO SE MUEVE NI DISPARA Y EL B24 LAS BALAS DEL ARTILLERO DE COLA CAEN MUY RAPIDO ASIA BAJO

But we're in Open Beta. No? (everyone can register and play at will - this doesn't seem to me anywhere near "closed")

I really enjoy my B-17, both the E, E/L and G models.

Can take quite hell of a pounding and still deliver that payload.

Though G is bit bugged right now with it's engines, old engine gets you easily to 330km/h while new engine only peaks around 260 km/h.

The varied loadouts are also good, depending on what map you'll get. If there's lot of soft targets (Port), 16x500lb's is great choice, but overall the 8x1000lb loadout is the most common one.

B17 can easily also take out airports, if there's no jet fighters present. Only those things are counters for them. Piston engines get chewed up by the gunners.

Not only they are good, they are super OP. Only thing that can kill em are jets and maybe some lucky attackers. (Me410 with the 50mm might have the biggest chance)

You can simply fly around the map without getting ground targets, and you will still recieve 1-5 air kills by chewing up the planes trying to take you down. The more the better, not like they can do anything to you.

Also, you can take out whole airports with your amazing loadout in a few runs.

All i managed to do to counter these planes it to ram them at high speed. Ram them at low speed and they will keep on flying.

Don't get me wrong, I am not raging here, but this is the situation.

I understand they are supposed to be tough, but right now, due to lack of DM's they are invincible.
