Messerschmitt Me-264 "Amerika Bomber"

I tried my hand at a WW2 heavy bomber this time. The Messerschmitt Me 264 was a long-range strategic bomber developed during World War II for the German Luftwaffe as its main strategic bomber. The design was later selected as Messerschmitt's competitor in the Reichsluftfahrtministerium's (the German Air Ministry) Amerikabomber programme, for a strategic bomber capable of attacking New York City from bases in France or the Azores. She's heavy and cumbersome of course, but flies smoothly enough. (AG1) drops the load, (AG2) hands control to the cannon/machine gun turrets using VTOL and trim sliders. (AG3) extends flaps. Use (AG4) to assign the trim slider to the trim tabs for pitch adjustment -just make sure to switch it off again when using the turrets. (AG5) opens/closes bomb doors, (AG6) operates the nav lights. I incorporated (with thanks) the bomb sight by SnoWFLakE0S,. Have fun carpet-bombing... this is the best I could do without an excessive part count...

    Why does it feel like it’s the b-29 (German version)?

    @Asdavis1053 I just spawned several of these at "Maywar takeoff" -no problems, except for things slowing down somewhat...

    @ThomasRoderick true... yet a B29 would carry 32 such bombs on shorter runs, and even a good old B17 could have up to 16. These bombers were certainly not sent in as "lone cowboys"; hundreds of planes were often involved in a single bombing raid. As for the "need", well...

    something tells me I do not want to be on the receiving end of such a deluge... Also, how many bombs are going to hit one single target? I don't really think that we need to drop 20+ 500lb bombs on a single building...

    Absolutely stunning level of detail right here. You captured the smoothness of the aircraft's lines pretty well, really gives it that trademark Messerschmitt feeling.

    @Seeras Thanks. And there's not a bit, but WAY too many bombs -but then, there are way too few bombers. Any strategic raid would feature swarms of such planes, and I have no idea how to arrange for those -hence the lame solution of putting all eggs in a single basked, so to speak ;)

    I would LOVE IT if SP could add contrails into the game. It would make any big plane look so much more awesome!
