If you feel like getting 1 shotted by 190s even more, B24 is a excellent, not to mention classy, choice.

There is no rational reason to buy it, so, no, you shouldn't buy it. However, if you've already bought the B-17s before it then I don't see why you wouldn't buy the B-24D since you'd have already bought 3 extremely bad bombers.

The game isnt awarding enough to buy this bomber, if you had friends to fly in formation it would rape as those 50 cals would wreck any 190 coming near them. Sad to see a plane that blew Germany and Italy to the stone age get destroyed in a game.

The B24 is a sitting duck in 1.29. I rarely use it now & never pay to repair it when I do. If you do buy it the only way it can be used is to dive & build up speed & hit as many targets as possible before your shot down. The B24 is more fragile than the B17 & since 1.29 when bomb splash damage reduction & reduction in lion income per target it is impossible to cover repair costs for it in arcade. I think the only reason you would buy it now would be to unlock the B29.

I'm not sure why an early production model of Liberator is a higher tier than a late production model of B-17 and has the same bombload, when IRL the chief benefits of the B-24 over the B-17 was larger payload and superior range.

Its .50's when shooting from the rear shoot both tail, top and ball turret, so it's better for defense apparently.

 

Source: A friend who has one, he also says it blows up a lot.

Because you can take out six... you heard it: SIX ground targets and.... AND one fighter that is trying to chase you. Then pay 67k repair.

Just had my 5th game in B-24 since long time (still great 8x500 lb bombs). Went to historical > Berlin (meh) > dropped bomb on AAA, got oneshoted by D-13, but He-162 was also pretty close. 

GREAT MM, NICE BOMBLOAD, FUN PLANE buy it!

I wouldn't even bother buying bombers unless it's an attacker like the a-20 just a waste of lions to repair.

I'm hoping you aren't trying to say that there are no good bombers in this game, because there are quite an amount of good/great ones in the game.

why should i buy the B-24D liberator?

is there any reson? beside eve more repair cost?

 You shouldn't ! You couldn't ! You wouldn't ! Now now, not then, not ever again !

 

 

 

P.S. I still regret buying the Mitchell, A-20 makes more lions, has lower repair cost, is more durable and can also kill planes.

I'm not saying that at all but you can't deny that bombers get shot down way to easily in this game.

It doesn't have a cockpit, is over tiered, lacks its historical advantage over just about everything else in the world in regards to bombload and it has an astronomical repair price. In short, you shouldn't. I don't recommend B-17's either.

They all happen to be Soviet..

Umm... no, Soviets are the worst for bombers. They are the worst to play in HB and are crap in Arcade.

After reading a few of these posts, it seems everyone complaning is flying this play VERY wrong. You shouldnt ever be below 18k ft unless you are re arming, or killing an AI biplane far away from AAA. Fly with another bomber, or with an escort. the 20x100lbs load out is good for hitting a lot of AAA and Arty, which is generally what the targets are for US. I only fly FRB, so that's all I can attest to. The guns are better on this than the B-17, and it takes quite a few more flak/cannon hits.
