Blorgh2017 posted a topic in Player Feature and Gameplay SuggestionsOne thing I like about the new tech tree German CV's is that their dive bombers fly at high altitude. As soon as they launch, they go near-vertical to achieve that altitude, and I really like the view of looking down at the battlefield from such height. Sometimes, even the battleships look like tiny destroyers, and I get a sensation that I'm really soaring high, lol. Of course, Graf Zeppelin's dive bombers aren't like that, because GZ is an older ship, preceding the new tech tree ships. So I was wondering if it would be okay to suggest an update to GZ, so that her dive bombers fly at such high altitude too. Just saying. And while at it maybe even change her dive bombers' aiming reticle, from the useless (lel) perfect circle, to a more elliptical shape of her tech tree counterpart. I think this would also make her dive bombers a little more useful than they're now, TBH. Plus, maybe even make the stuka sirens a little louder, for all German CV's? LUL. Thank you for your time, lal.
So I got the Graf Zeppelin from a container earlier today and I've taken it out for a spin a few times. It's not as good as the Enterprise, but I enjoy it regardless. That, however, is beside the point. Something I've noticed about the Zeppelin's dive bombers is that when you start an attack run, you can hear the infamous 'Jericho Trumpet' siren blaring as they dive. The thing is, though, I always figured that the only plane to ever have that device installed was the Ju 87 Stuka, and the dive bombers on the Zeppelin are Ta-152s, a plane that was originally designed as a high-altitude interceptor and as such didn't dive-bomb anything during its actual service period. Because of this, I now ask those of you who know more about history and WG's methods this question: Is there any historical precedent for German dive bombers outside of the Ju 87 being equipped with the Jericho Trumpet? Or is WG pulling a Waffentrager E-100 and making this up entirely? Thank you in advance to whomever responds. Sincerely, 1Sherman.
