    • Realism in combat

      I can't tell you how pleased I am to have witnessed (on two occasions no less) how a mixed squadron of bombers and fighters, all of which were grounded and refueling at the end of bombing runs, were able to take down nuclear bombers while suffering no damage to themselves. I do realize that some of you may find it hard to believe that such an event could take place however i'd like to point out that over the skies of of Britain, a single Sopwith Camel bi-plane which sitting on the runway had single handily eliminated the entire German Luftwaffe. And as we all know, this led to Goring's execution by an enraged Hitler and eventually led to the end of the war n 1940 a mere 6 months after it had began.

      And if you liked this story, Next time I will tell you the tale of the den of cub scouts in a row boat, armed with a half dozen pea shooters, managed to Sink the Bismark.

    • Nuclear bombers are fragile, and always have been.


      Perhaps there were a few interceptors on patrol over the airbase, or a few ground units with AA capability nearby.


      If any of the planes at the target zone had finished refueling and were just parked there they would defend themselves as well.

    • Nuclear bombers may be fragile however a grounded plane simply does not have the range toi shoot down anything at such high altitude. Had there been ground units or units i the air, I would have accepted the outcome. As for a few units refueling, he simply did not have the time. I followed behind him after his run waited for him to land his 10 fighters and 10 bombers which were in a single group, and then made my run.
    • While the images may show planes on the ground, you can be sure that those planes are armed, fueled, and pilots are in the seat to defend their airbase. For simplicity the game engine may not display them taking off to defend their airbase and returning, that is in essence what happens.

    • Higher levels of airbases allow shorter refueling times.
