Bf-110 vs stuka dive bomber.

Post by Sarcasmmm »

What is actually better?They both carrying same bombs but BF 110 can carry almost double more.Is that means bf 110 is better for ground support?I understand that level bombers less fit for ground support and they less accurate for such thing, but what about b 110 and stuka?I remember that in Wite 1 stuka is very powerful tactical bomber but in Wite 2 may be some changes..

In my experience, the Ju-877 delivers more damage but I can't say why. My guess is that dive-bombers get an accuracy bonus?

A dive bomber will drop to 1000 to drop the bombs. I am not sure if a fighter-bomber would do the same or not.

I only have history books to guide me, I don't know how this is modeled in the game (but, knowing Gary and team, probably quite well), but the Stuka is very precise but basically a sitting duck without an escort, whereas the Bf-110, while less precise, at least can fight back if intercepted.

aye, come 1943 and I tend to replace the Ju-87s with those rather nice Fw190 FBs. In WitW they were a better mix of impact and robustness and had some ability to cope with enemy fighters.

so it becomes increasingly useless as the risks of interception rise.

all FB ground strike this way regardless of notional mission altitude

I believe that some of the StG Stabs and other Sch. G. fighter bomber squadrons were equipped with Bf110s. So, not a far fetched idea.
