After introducing the gargantuan B-36 in 1948, almost every other heavy bomber the U.S. had in service was made immediately made obsolete. Flying higher, further while carrying more payload, there was no longer a need to support squadrons of aging B-17 and B-24 bombers.
As such, these were given to other allied nations - most notably, Canada. The B-24 in its current state was inadequate against the even deadlier fighter aircraft Axis forces were fielding. Avro Canada - Canada’s main manufacturer of aircraft at the time - had decided to take on the task of overhauling the B-24. This eventually became the B-24V Super Liberator.
To increase payload, the B-24 was re-engined with licence produced R-4360 Wasp Majors. To extract as much power as possible, each engine was given a set of contra-rotating propellers. Defensive armament was significantly improved replacing the M2 Brownings with 20mm Hispano cannons. The turrets were remote controlled and guided by radar. This improved survivability and allowed the aircraft to more effectively defend itself. The new B-24V could fly as fast, and as high as the U.S’s B-29. Unfortunately, production of the Super Liberator was slow with only 150 being made. The few produced proved to be successful, assisting with the allied bombing campaign in early 1950.
By 1953, the US shipped out hundreds of B-29s to Canada effectively replacing the B-24V. The remaining B-24Vs saw limited service throughout the rest of the war as trainers or in night bombing campaigns.
Stage then fly as normal, rotate at 48. tap i a bit if you want to climb or need more acceleration (this changes the prop deploy) J and L control the turrets and lastly, RCS for the bomb bay, although it doesnt work quite right and i dont know why.
