Hi to all WWII aviators, in my experience the best way to shot down a great
numbers of B-17 is the massive use of the Bf110G-2/R3:



For example this squadron shot down 16 B-17 without losses in a single
turn. Is the Bf110G-2/R3 the best fighter to do this? Any suggestion?

Regards

If the escort is poor, then yes.

If you are playing aginst the AI that is probably the case as I find the AI tends to do better at running the defence rather than the offence.
The Bf-110 dies like flies against allied fighters so against a human who escorts their raids properly you may get a few kills at first, but would ultimately loose most of your squadron.

Edit, the Rocket armed A/C will disperse the bombers and produce a lot of stagglers, making future kills easier, so a quick pass followed by recalling the 110s may ultimately be effective in assisting other forces

Agree with Dobey on this. As an Allied player vs Germans, I never have problems with Bf-110 or 410 - in fact with properly escorted raids the 410 morale gets very low very fast and they 'break off' their attacks (much to my annoyance as I kill so many!).

Yes, I play against AI...not perfect, but I think it's pretty good.
I tend to mount Rocket on FW190F model, but I'll try both cannons/rockets
mounted on Bf110G-2/R3 and see what happend.

I'm sorry to hear that, I'll have to revise my 'strategies'.
Right now I thought I had understood something!

Thanks to both
