Let me tell you the bombs on this are fearsome, you hear a Liberator and you have no AA/AV nearby kiss your rear good bye.

The sound they make as well, like the WWII Stukas, a high pitched scream as they descend.

The plane also makes a lovely sound when it lands, a nice powering down sound.

Its main cannon is not seen on any other vehicle in the game, it a heavy cannon and is very good very powerful, slow fire rate.

However, it is AA MAx & Skyguard food if it flies low.

It is reaver/mosquito food if it flies low

I have flown it, it handles lovely. Just less maneuveability of a Reaver, it is 90 on the nose speed wise.

It has no afterburner, the space bar engages are rear/down moveable camera for the pilot to see below/behind him.


The rear gunner cannot aim up, the plane has a total 180 degree blind spot covering the entire upper sector of the plane i.e anything attacking from above can't be hurt.

The bomber has 2 ammo types I think, AV, AP (anti-vehicle, ant-personnel) an indirect of one bomb took me down to less than 25hp

I think a direct hit will kill a max in one

you cant usually see the ground on places like Hossin, Cyssor etc.

but some spotters on the ground + waypoints + mini-map may leadt to effective air strikes

Edit - Yeah Intruder only marginally faster, I went back in to double check

Heh, it looks like a small Galaxy. Or a large Reaver.

We really need some more unique looking aircraft. I hope the Lodestar isn't the same old design.

It's badass. You can't bomb if you're going at angles and what not. I really like it so far.

I could as the rear gunner/pilot, I didnt try when I was the bomber.

The bomb site is unique though

looking down you have a large circle which expands as you bring the view vertically down, I assume for carpet bombing? and which tightens as you lead it in front of the plane (excellent for accurate strikes on vehicles.

In the centre of the circle you have a normal crosshair.

The bomber is able to drop about a dozen bombs within a matter of seconds. Again I spent only the briefest of times in the gunnery/bombers position si I may be out with the figures

The bombsite obviously doesnt not move left/right just up and down forward along the axis of the plane.

You are only allowed to drop bombs when the plane is levelish and straight, you can drop them while banking. D;oh beaten to it
