I LIED! Yes, even though I said version 3 would be the last, I have once again upgraded my B-17G heavy bomber. I have focused on coloring for this version, particularly decals and underbelly shading. I have also made the bomb bay much more reliable and upgraded the doors. This is the most accurate version I can make on IOS (until I decide to make another one in like a month lol).

AG1 - parachutes for slowing down on the runway.
VTOL Down - opens bomb bay doors.
AG2, 3, 4, 5 - drops bombs. click in rapid succession for carpet bombing effect.
AG7 - activates turret, tail, and waist gunners.
AG8 - turns on nighttime lights.

Camera 1 - look into bomb bay.
Camera 2 - primitive bomb sight.

Upvote if you like it, and enjoy!

    It's just for convenience because if you brake too hard sometimes it flips forwards and hits the propellers @MakeshiftPlanes
