    my pe3 can't carry rockets yet

    I have managed two bomber kills with russian bombers though. Almost had a 3rd but a hurricane stole it.

    edit: and right after I post I nail 3 bombers in a row. Took the control surfaces off a blenheim from the rear, passed under and let the tail gunner have at him from point blank. Turned around and dove on an Ar-2, missed him in a cloud but snagged another Pe3 with a cockpit shot, then turned again and noticed the Ar-2 had landed for an easy strafing run.

    I had 3 kills left to do and just lost 5 pilots in a single game. I think i got 1 kill and 1 assist in that round ffs.

    fake edit: while typing this i respawned, lost that pilot also. And another 2 assists.
    fake edit 2: Apparently 2 of the guys I shot just crashed after i spawned my last plane and the kills count now. Thank god, I could not stand another round.
    fake edit 3: Predictable I lost my last plane, my wellington, after getting my pilot knocked out from behind by a Yak-1.

    I spent an entire round arguing with some moron who insisted that aircraft aren't armored and therefore a 50 cal from the rear is completely expected to kill the pilot because no aircraft designer in their right mind would put a 30kg steel plate behind the seat specifically to keep that from happening

    However, I did have it pointed out to me that my bomber pilots only have like 15 vitality. Supposedly they stop dieing so much when they get more in the range of 30-50.

    At least the new thing for today is just getting any air kills flying anything I feel like (hello russian biplanes with tracers)
    i heard you're ideas and their definately good

    Except you can singlehandedly carry a team to victory in this game to a much bigger degree than world of RNG

    Meh, screw the ground forces beta. The challenges are getting ever more dumber. Flying heavy bombers is nothing but a chore.

    The Do217 E1 seems like the best german ground attack plane. That fixed 20mm cannon in front helps farm lots of kills.

    HOWEVER - the next version Do217 has a 20mm turret in front. Which is fucking useless since the pilot can't fire it

    You should not expect that you will have to fill ALL tasks to get in. Chances are they will give each achievement a score and do a sum of that, plus random picks regardless of score.
