Glide bombing is out? I just learned about it and it's already gone


Glide bombing remains in the game.

Level bombers never could glide bomb. Torpedo bombers were subsequently added to the list of aircraft types which couldn't glide bomb. The exit altitude after a glide bomb attack is 2-5k.

This is news! I distinctly recall one of the updates about six years ago (the one that changed low level bombing threshold from 5999 to 1999) saying glide bombing was deleted to simplify the air combat model somewhat. It was almost never used by players anyway. I will look for the patch notes ...

EDIT: checked the patch notes - nothing about the air model revamp there. I suppose it was not a patch update, but a game version update done by the Air Combat programmers. Will try to find it.

EDIT2: Could not find the specific reference. There was a thread in November 2009 about the latest release of the game having glide bombing above 10,000 feet but a whole lot of non-level bomber aircraft could do it, including fighters. There was another thread in March 2012 that talked about glide bombing no longer being available to TBs. And then there was a 69 page thread on the Air Combat Model hosted by The Elf from 2007 on. I confess I did not read every page because it was not about patches, just development of the original model for game release.

No carrier air attack today. The are probably responding to the New Guinea landing but they fell into a recon void.

Borneo: No fighters in Borneo as far as I can tell so I stage some B-24's at Koepang.

It works! This is designed to pull resource away from the Central Pacific. Probably they will deduce they came from Koepang so we need to thin out the crowd there.

Very interesting. Didn't know that about the B-29 having two bomb bays. B-29 had quite a ceiling advantage on the Lancaster as I recall.

The B-29 had the first pressurized fuselage that enabled it to go higher and fly longer than other aircraft which had to provide oxygen to the crew above 10K feet. That feature alone was a huge R&D cost - figuring out how to accommodate the expansion and contraction of the fuselage skin as the outside air pressure changed. Some of the initial ops losses (from the China base experiment) may have been from pressurization or skin failure issues. Same with the long range transfers of the aircraft to operating bases.

Can't find the link right now but the Germans had a passenger plane with pressurized cabins that they used like the U-2 and flew recon and nuisance bombing raids over England. The Brits finally modified a fighter to get that high but it's guns froze. The Germans quit flying the plane after that. It was the first dogfight at 40,000 feet.
