Hey Gang:

I noticed there is no "Bomber Channel" on the #2 server. Could this be an option ? Seeing as there are now more opportunities for using the Blenheim, hopefully more will learn to fly it. A bomber channel would eliminate tying up the fighter channel, also joining the server it would show who might be flying the Blenheim and easier to join up with them.

Thanks

Hello mate,

Not sure how this would work as calling for fighter escort would be difficult.

Actually, most times I've had fighter escort, it's been because the fighter jocks offered, not because I asked!

I'm new to TS generally, but it'd be great if there could be a way to have your own channel for bombers, but click a switch to send out a general message for support, then the support joins your channel. The way channels are switched at the moment makes this difficult, especially as alt/tabbing to TS stops my FFB working for a while, but maybe there's a way with colander's new plug-in.

Anyone? :inq:

Can't remember off the top of my head, but you can set TS3 up, I believe, so you can change channels while in game. I'll take a look at it and get back with you.:goofy:

we actually did this years ago in "Fighter Ace". Theres actually a lot of chatter setting up several bombers for formation as well as maintaining altitude. We usually had a "Bomb Leader" that would from time to time switch over to the fighter channel to update the fighter group. As long as they have the area an altitude its easy from they to meet up.

Denis,

We'll put some bomber channels up for the 2nd server as well. Just forgot about it!

Thank you Sir:

Lead Bomber will have the ability to switch to "Fighter Channel" to inform fighters of bomber location
