i don't think it will be piloted , i think it will be flying around the map and you only get to use the guns :3

It looks badass. And I'm sure without Jet support, it's going to kick the shit kicked out of it.

From what i understand this is going to be flyable. I like the idea of spawning on it and jumping off the back to get into the battle quicker, but i think it could be pretty OP if it has the bigger cannons. Personally just hope it's a mobile spawn point.

Mobile spawn point idea would be great but look at the second screen below. there are just 2 seats in it. No pilot just gun crew probably. They gonna have to announce something about how this plane gonna work.
Idk it really looks like an easy target. Some skilled dude in tank can shot this giant down really easily if it gonna fly in circles in same altitude and speed.

Yeh, hat's definitely not the pilots view, however it's always the bottom slot that goes to the pilot/driver so we don't know yet if this is flyable or not. Plus It's probably in Beta testing right now, the DLC doesn't come out for a little while. They'll probably add more seats if that's what they want to do with it. Also, I doubt a tank could shoot it down, that view is probably zoomed in and tank shells suffer greatly from bullet drop, they wouldn't be able to reach that height.

yeah but look at the icon in the empty seat...it looks like a bullet and places marked like that are places with some guns, pilot seat would be marked as circle...so I think it will be on autopilot with one guy manning the heavy guns and second seat maybe minigun with designator or light caliber gun and in control of defensing mechanism (flares, jammer or what)
and that view is not zoomed, you can see in right side 1x and thats probably unzoomed view.
Imho this plane will be circling around the battlefield with 2 guys inside raising hell on the ground but it will be very vulnerable without any jet support. Russian side will have probably more jets. maybe US side will have 2 jets and AC-130 and RU will have 3 jets and few more mobile AA vehicles.

So basically, it's going to be like having an attack helicopter, but with two gunners instead of a pilot. Personally I think this is going to be incredible unbalanced because I can normally take out 10+ ground units a minute as chopper gunner with a steady pilot. They are going to have to make extremely long reload times and small clips for any machine guns on it otherwise it will be hideously OP.

thats badass.
#38616 to #38480 - sirfistalot ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
and its official, you can just control the guns
User avatar #38517 to #38480 - sirfistalot ONLINE (06/05/2012) [-]
yeah but they could tell us something...I hate when they just toss couple of screens and "hurr argue and theorize about it for months, then we ll release totally disappointing news"

just one man in plane and he is manning the main gun
