HE 177

Post by Shark guy 35 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 4:15 pm

German heavy bomber. Could be useful as the JU88 is insufficient as a strategic bomber, in my opinion. Also I can't get the Wikipedia link in here.

Yes, I kinda thought they were the same thing but they are slightly different. Both are really cool planes. I think Germany has interesting bombers.

I agree, the condor was more of a transport plane.

also much too slow. for hunting on ships where there was no escort of interceptors good, as far as i know the fw 200 was also used like this, but not for long

It could carry a decent payload, but was rather slow.

Good for a first draft. The yellow parts should be pink for team color and the wings are a bit strange. It also seems kinda big.

Yes, make the wings smaller, it looks like an AC-130.

Sorry if it's bothersome but the length of the bottom wing seems a little strange.

Yeah, it might look huge on the map, especially when compared to other bombers.

It looks good. Stats will probably be similar to JU88 but with more damage and 7 turns to build.

It must have few damage against planes because it had 6 machine guns.Probably must be more expensive if its better against planes.

I thought it cold have a "Fritz x button" next to the common bombing button with a cooldown.
Fritz X for extreme damage against ships as it was used for?

I think that's a good idea, but it would need industry level 2 and a special tech.
