    Default Disappointed in the Sunderland MkIIIA

    First, notice when you are bombing...how the sundy works in bombing is, that because it is a float bomber, there are doors that open from the fuselage beneath the wing spurs and a rail comes out to ready your bombs to drop....or do they....the first thing you will notice is that when you are bombing with your first two bombs the bombsight will jump.....considerably This is terrible. Notice when you are bombing, switch to the view where you can see the fuselage of the plane. You will notice that the first bomb on either side will "magically" appear, thus throwing off the aiming of the rest of the bomb load. In the end, you cannot make the maximum efficiency from your entire bomb load.


    Second, this plane has forward gunnery. Great! However, when I go to use the gunner sights for precision targeting, it automatically switches to the bomb reticle. Ughh...


    Third, the lack of maps this plane was designed for. This whale was actually fairly armored to take some punishment for its coastal patrol and convoy escort duties....this thing is made of paper. One shot from a 20MM and above at the wing spur is certain death.

    I hope this doesn't come off as crass but damn I like float planes but this one was launched really badly imo.

    unfortunately bombers are not the meta in War thunder. They get no love from gaijin, and are low risk rp for fighters.
