B-17 Flying Fortress - The Mighty 8th Game Cheats

During the mission-planning phase, make sure to plot the
waypoints for your ingress and egress routes around enemy
antiaircraft concentrations. Although it may take longer
for the bomber fleet to reach its objective(s), the
formation won't have to fly through as much flak, which
will hopefully cut losses and make your bombing run that
much more effective.
Don't forget that in addition to the bombers, you can take
over the controls of your fighter escorts at any time during
play. Consider hopping in the fighter escorts during the
early phases of the mission to keep the enemy fighter
opposition at bay as long as possible. You can always switch
back to the bombers whenever the enemy fighters are within
attack range of the bomb group.
If you're playing the bomber campaign, don't bother going
after distant targets such as Berlin until the spring of
1944, when long-range P51D Mustangs are available to escort
the bomb group to and from the target.
