small change to a bombable scenario

Postby runtujazz » Mon Aug 09, 2010 12:26 pm

I tried to edit a scenario of fighting, MarinCountyWWIIBombersWithCover, to see a real flying formation of B17: what was called "Box" which was adopted with several modifications from 1942 until the end of the war. This is the code that must be replaced to the original if you want:

Yes, I developed my own B-17 combat box code a while back and posted this video using Gooneybird's *AweSoMe* B-17 liveries!



It's a lot of fun to come across a 12 element box of B-17's at altitude. Thanks for posting your version of the code...it's good to see that great minds think alike! :lol:

Thanks for the compliments. Now I am preparing a variant, called Standard Group Combat Formation Box, which consisted of twenty aircraft. I think it will be wonderful to see her fly, but it will be very challenging for a single zero. :shock: :shock: :shock:
