B-17 The Flying Fortress: The Bloody 100th
Manage and take control of the 10-man crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress as they attempt to complete 25 harrowing missions inspired by the real-life battles of The Bloody 100th Bomber group.
B-17 The Flying Fortress: The Bloody 100th, is the third game in the critically acclaimed series. The game recreates many of the aspects of the real-life struggles that WWII allied bomber crews faced. From the briefings to landings players will face the arduous, nerve-wracking challenge of delivering payloads deep behind enemy lines against nearly impossible odds.
Manage Your Crew and Aircraft
Your fresh crew will come trained in the basics, but it is through contact with the enemy and their actions that they will learn and improve their skills. As they go through their tour they will receive flight gear upgrades and other additions.
If your B-17 makes it through all 25 missions, there won’t be many original parts left. The Patched panels replaced parts, freshly stenciled victory markings and internal wear and tear will all tell a story that is uniquely its own.
Experience the entire journey
- Get your orders from the briefing room.
- Ride with your crew to the hardstand
- Elephant Walk with the rest of your squadron to the runway
- Take – off and form up with your squadron.
- Perform System checks
- Navigate to the final Target and deliver your payload
- Then return to base.
- All made possible by an engine that can render the entire globe.
Trench Warfare in the Sky
If the experience was easy, anyone could do it. Air battles get extremely bloody and being in a B-17 has been likened to Trench Warfare. Once you enter enemy airspace you will find yourself
- Firing back at attacking enemy fighters
- Extinguishing Fires
- Repairing or stemming the Damage to your aircraft
- Rendering first aid to injured crewmates
- Riding out the Flak whilst keeping the Bomber level
- Lining up the Norden Bombsight and dropping the payload
If you make it through all of that, you will then have to land what is left of your plane. And if you are not that lucky, bail out before it’s too late.
