Post Would like to Join 617 Dambusters
S!

New here and looking to join up with the legendary 617. I was a squaddie with Stdy in 110th and like him been looking to join a serious bomber squad, which the game doesn't seem to have many of.

I was wanting to join the 617 Dambusters because you all do a lot of RDP bombing and this is my favorite thing to do in BE. Like Stdyhand, I too have been playing almost 2 years. Actually stdy introduced me to the game. After a while I wanted something a bit different to do in game and tried flying. I find bombing, level bombing in particular, to be much more rewarding not only as game play but for the Allied side as well because it attrites the enemies supply and is less risk to Allied supply as most Flak will not reach a bomber at a higher alt without a great deal of luck. I really had to get used to the Havoc and DB7. I didn't always hit my target with the Havoc at first because I was dive bombing (like most noobs I suspect) and unlike some I never was that great at it. I find level bombing easier. My interest peeked and I wanted to know more about how to level bomb. I went looking for videos and I found the one on your site that stdy mentioned. I learned a lot from that video and tried the RDP bombing. I've been hooked since. There is just something about being that high up and still being able to hit your target that just thrills me. It's a skill that many players who've been around a while still don't have, for whatever reason. I knew the 617 Dambusters did a lot of RDP bombing and I have not found any other squad that does it as much as you guys. I think I'll enjoy flying with you all. Btw I do have TS as well but I have no mic. Had one before and accidently rolled the wire under my chair. Needless to say it wasn't functional after that ;) I haven't gotten around to getting another one yet but likely will at some point.
