Re: B-17, B-24, B-29, or Lancaster?
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
I actually just like the Lancaster because of Squadron No.617 and what they did with Tallboy bombs against Tirpitz, Grand Slam against the German viaduct and in the famous Dam Buster raid.
The Lanc' was also used during Operation Millenium against Cologne (the first 1000 bomber raid), they bombed Hamburg, and firebombed Dresden.
Many say that these attacks on German cities (espescially Dresden) make Arthur "Bomber" Harris a war criminal. He helped end the war=He's a Hero in my books. The loss of civilians and refugees was a shame, but there would have been many more if Germany was not brought to it's knees thanks in large part to the Allied Bombing Campaigns.
