Please make fighter actually able to shoot down bombers plz.  Via the manual bombing key bombers can just avoid getting shot down by fighters.  If you are going to lower the number of CV's in a room you are encouraging BW CV's that can't be countered.  Bombers can occupy 2 waves of fighters because of their fuel supply.

Not against DB's.  The manual bombing function can out turn fighters and fighters aren't faster-er enough than bombers to catch up after you break off to re-engage.

Well chasing down bombers evading by using manual sharp turns or/and micromanaged fighters is one hellish chore.

In fact i even started using T3s so people engage instead of dragging away.
And if i end up against T4s while using T3s?

Drag away!

You are complaining that bombers can outmaneuver your fighters? You really gotta learn to micro your fighters then. Don't just let them chase the bombers, direct your fighters to the side. If you are still complaining, then you should also add how bombers can create a circle of death with your fighters and how some bombers can shoot your fighters down. TL;DR - You are doing it wrong.

T3's speed has trouble to gain on the bombers when they break away.

and the cod is why its better to have more FP pilots, you can simply let one squad circle them, while you drag the other one out of the circle (and if you have even more pilots you could even let another squad over the BB line, so your team has sight).

takes a lot of pilots to rotate this, but it works fine.

Listen, I understand how CV play works.  The problem is the speed of T4 UK fighters in catching the bombers AFTER I try to re-engage.  If fighters are supposed to be the counter to bombers it shouldn't require THAT much micro-managing to take down bombers with fighters.  If I send a squad over the enemy BB line (yes not at max altitude) and then go back to trying to take out the bombers, my fighters will be AA'd to death if I'm not constantly paying attention to them.

Listen, I know it CAN be done guys.  My point is it should take that much attention.  If it takes 3 squads of fighters to take out one squad of bombers then how are you providing sight for the BB's.  I'm not saying it can't be done here.  I'm just saying that fighters should not require 3 pilots and 30 seconds to shoot down 10 bombers, if you see them.
