Any squadrons that escort B25 in new career mode?

Recommended Posts

Not sure. The B-25s I was flying with had description "B-25(RAF)" in their icons, so I suspect USAS version exists, too.

My first mission in career was in Spit escorting bombers, at least briefing said so cos i haven't seen single bomber during the mission.

As soon we took off primary objective has shown as completed but flight leader continued checkpoints to objective where we downed few 109's and rtb.

 

I will report this in bug section 😬

No USAAF squadrons operated with B-25's in Europe. For them it was the B-26, the A-20 and the A-26 that were used as tactical bombers.

 

Not sure if that was what you were asking about. Or if the question was whether USAAF squadrons escort RAF B-25s. That I don't know either :) I've flown a No. 3 Squadron RAF Tempest mission escorting bombers.

American squadrons can escort B-25s, yes.

Do you know which squadron? Currently in a p51 squadron, 14 mission in. So far only ground attack missions

Call me nitpicky, but you're forgetting that B-25's did fly out of North Africa and then Italy.

You're right. I was thinking purely of the ETO theatre. MTO was a different story.

On a sidenote, I recall someone mentioning some while back the possibility of A-20Bs being integrated with Bodenplatte to use in player careers. Though I was disappointed this was not the case, I still look forward to the B-25 collector plane and, God willing, an A-20G aswell

Oh yeah. It's true that ETO and MTO were two separate things.

That's just the name of thd B25 in the game. If you play a quick mision or a user made one you'll also see the same RAF label.

There are RAF Boston squadrons on the map, but for whatever reason the player can't fly with them.

An A20G would be a great collector plane

 

And I've escorted B25s with the Tempest so far
