Be cautious!

This is a dependency mod that affects all kinds of stuff inside BAT. You may be fixing one and tearing up some new bugs.

I am working on integrating this in an upcoming  BAT pack right now and.... let's just say, it's not pretty.

Got these up and running in CUP (had a 20% crash initially but updated to Westerns latest engine mod 2.8.7 now ok). Noticed that the AI labels all say B52:UNKNOWN ? Will this be updated at some point?
Great mod - easy to shoot down with the Arado240 tho?

Looking patiently forward to updated BAT. I know it'll be worth the wait. Thanks for all the hard work and thanks for sharing.

thanks to all for advice, and thanks for the neat B-52 model. I installed the new engine mod, and it now shows up in my game, except for the 1971 B-53H version, for some reason. I still get a 20% crash if I try to install the  B-47, though. It would be nice to see these planes in an updated BAT version with all the picky peculiarities sorted out, wouldn't it?

It's not only not pretty, it's impossible to build a mission.  :(

Oh well.

Best regards,

PS I have the latest engine mod, there are many choices however.

Hi All,

Re the B-52 mission building: I did build one, used a B-17 initially, then switched to the B-52D, taking off from Tan Son Nhut on the Vietnam Online Map (not accurate but the runway is just long enough to rotate at 130 KIAS) and hitting Haiphong with 108 500#. Added a few SAMs and naturally got winged in No 6 engine. It can be done and I used my joystick and not just trim.

If any one is interested, I'll post the let down procedures for the BUFF which can be accomplished with this model, as well as the take off procedures. The IL2 autopilot actually flies almost like the real thing once airborne except, at the release point, use level stab and manually release your load.

Actually brought back memories. I flew at 6000M whereas we were actually at 33,000 feet but that really doesn't look good IMHO in IL2.

Also, flew during twilight where, in reality,  all Linebacker II missions were at night.

Best Regards,

 Jack

Sounds like an awesome mission! I’ve been unable to make it fly in my own game, though AI can fly it so I have just flown along and watched. Lol

Sounds like a very exciting game mission for the B-52, Jack!  8)
I will be painting a few more Vietnam era skins for the "Buff" in the near future.
What did your aircraft look like? Did it have any particular pin-up or artwork on its nose?
What was the bombers number?

Hi Max,

Have attached a photo of my 100th mission bird. By-the-by - all Ds had the 0 prefix on the tail number indicating she was over 10 years old.

ie: 'Cong Crusher'' 0-60658

Thanks.

Jack
