b. Platform: PS3, probably both

c. Reproducability: always

d. Severity: feature

e. Priority: Normal

a. Summary/Bug Title: RE weak bombers.

b. Platform: PS3, XBOX360? PS3.

c. Reproducability: always.

d. Severity: major.

e. Priority: High.

f. Description: Tail shot off.

g. Steps to Reproduce:

h. Additional Information and Suggestions: I know this has been mentioned already; just to give my thought on this... I think this is releated to some issue with the tail section of the planes. Bombers do seem to take a fair amount of fire, BUT if you just happen to hit the right spot near the rear of the aircraft one shot will blow the tail off of the plane.

i. Upload files: ? upload a file that may help understanding the problem, e.g. a screenshot.

a. Summary/Bug Title: Ju-87 Stuka Siren Is Missing

b. Platform: PS3 and XBOX360

c. Reproducability: always

d. Severity: feature, trivial, and text

e. Priority: Low to Normal

f. Description: The Ju-87 Stuka was infamous for its siren, but the airbrake does not initiate the siren as it should.

Also, the text of the R2 model implies that previous versions did not feature a siren - this is incorrect, the "Stuka scream" was an early trademark of the Blitzkreig and should be on the B2. Latter models, such as the R2, rarely made use of the siren as the war changed from offensive to defensive.

The missing siren may seem trivial to some, but I know many of us were very disapointed the siren was missing. To have that missing feature added would be amazing. I would be grateful.

g. Steps to Reproduce: Simply hit the airbrake and dive. The Stuka should begin to "scream" as it dives, it doesn't.

a. Summary/Bug Title: Year selection in Versus

b. Platform: PS3, XBOX360

c. Reproducability: NA

d. Severity: Tweak

e. Priority: Normal

f. Description: Server host needs the ability to select a year in Versus. For example, if the year is "ANY," all planes may be used for that faction (this is how Versus is now). If the year were 1941, however, only models from that period, and before, would be available.

The purpose of this is to be able to recreate specific eras and to enjoy earlier models without being inferior to the enemy.

g. Steps to Reproduce: NA

a. Summary/Bug Title: ? Your squad wont drop bombs or return to base.

b. Platform: PS3, XBOX360? PS3

c. Reproducability: always, sometimes, random, have not tried, unable to reproduce, N/A? Always.

d. Severity: feature, trivial, text, tweak, minor, major, crash, block? Major.

e. Priority: None, Low, Normal, High, Urgent, Immediate? Urgent.

f. Description: ? I hate having to control each plane of my squad ( the 3 or 7 you can take control of, not the other ones) to make them drop the bombs in bombing missions and they will never return to base when damage or when they are out of ammo. I dont like changing plane unless Im shot down , out of ammo heavily damage or in this cases when Im out of bombs because my dumb squad wont drop the bombs/kill ground targets. And if I change because of being damage or out of ammo the dumb ai wont return to base the out of ammo or nearly dead plane, instead it keeps following me or flying around doing nothing until it eventually goes down.

g. Steps to Reproduce: ? Just play mission editor offline.

h. Additional Information and Suggestions: ? Improve the AI
