    Exclamation Heinkel Multiplayer Wrongness

    Why on earth can't you play in the HE-111 with Multiple players one flying / one Bombadier??

    That would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!

    A bit boring during the flight for the bombadier, but the could allow a switch between guns and bombsite or somthing.

    Would be a nice addition.

    You can.

    However.. you need to be in coop mode and not dogfight.

    THe He can take a total of 6 pple.

    1 as the Pilot and bombadier
    1 Nose gunner
    1 Top gunner
    1 Ventral gunner
    2 Waist gunners

    Many a mission has been flown deep into enemy territory with planes full of online players... much conversation goes on.. and tracer fire everywhere..

    THe same applies to the stuka and IL2s.... In coop missions one player can hop in the pilots seat.. and another takes the rear gun

    Co op is ace.......and you can all fight against each other and just ignore scores

    Like I do when I shot Hat down by accident cos I cant tell one plane apart from another

    and for that I am very sorry, Sqn Leader

    On the flip side, I am VERY suprised no one has "hacked " it to allow it to play in online Multiplayer dogfights....

    frankly.....TiG piloting an IL2 and me as rear gunner....


    errr....



    uhhmm




    I'll get me coat

    The best thing about having everyone in the same bomber and the same room is that green tinge everyone gets on their faces when I pull a silly loop or a low level barrel roll over houses...

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I know you can be in the same plane. What I mean is have one person as the pilot and anouther as the bombadier.

    In IL2 yes - in reality, no. The nose gunner was also the bombardier, and in reality the bombardier would control the aircraft during the bombrun.

    That's what I thought. Surely they wouldn't have the pilot concentrating on flying as well as using the bobsite. I would have thought it would be more like the lancaster.
