Well, in all fairness, it's meant to be an arcade game and not a sim...at least, in my mind.

The game lets your crew climb out onto the wing while in flight and repair engines, for goodness sake.

Hey, that wing repair thing actually happened.

Obviously, I know it's not a sim and I wasn't expecting them to suddenly start modeling authentic systems. I just wish development energy was spent on other priorities, such as adding new player aircraft, formation flying, friendly AI, etc.

Not really. The dude fell off. And survived thank goodness.

Fair point. I *would* like to see formation flying.

Still based more in reality than the air-to-air missiles on a bomber.

With the exception of a few specialist squadrons, RAF heavy bombers didn’t do formation flying.  I would like to see them add in Bomber streams, pathfinders, target marking, navigational aids like Gee, Oboe, and H2S radar.  That’d be far more interesting than goofy missiles.

How about a little bobble-head Hitler flying a ME-262 jet fighter with giant claws for wings as a boss battle? Could've happened. OK, no it couldn't have.

It might have worked if a fighter hadn't put a few holes in his leg while he was doing it.  #:-)

Do they have Damnbusters in the game already, that's something outrageous, yet real, for the kiddies?  :bd:

Yeah, there's a Dambusters raid as one of the scripted campaign missions fairly early on.  It was a lot of fun.  You just needed to time the drop right based on the position of the two Aldis lamps reflecting off the lake surface.
