Default Bomber Formations And Performance

As we know, large numbers of AI take their toll on performance.
So at the moment the maximum number of bombers we can let fly in formation is tiny in comparison to what flew over Europe from 43 - 45.
I know that ED constantly want to improve performance, but what kind of number can we fairly expect/ what is ED's goal for unit count overall?

Just for ease of assembly, I've been using four elements of four in a Combat Box yielding 16 B-17s. Toss in a couple of escort flights, maybe two or three defending flights and some flak and it all runs pretty OK.

Mostly what causes the lag on your server seems to be when the bombers spawn and especially when their bombs impact the target. Usually the game stutters and freezes just as the bombs hit the target. As cool as watching the fireball at 2fps is it doesn't help mid dogfight.
