Hi Luthier, first of all a big thanks for make our dreams come true with this game.
I was wondering if are there any plans for modelling the bombing sights of the new bombers? I dont know if they are simply a circle with a big + on the center or they have targeting mechanism, but I will love if at least the + and the circled look down position could be modelled.
Can you tell me about if there are plans for it?

Tnx!

Not sure what you're asking. There are bomb sights in FB already, have been for a very long time now - so why wouldn't we have them in PF? Of course you'll have bombsights on our bombers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Of course, I was refering to the new planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif The Val, the Dauntless, etc..All of them had bombsights (maybe I´m wrong, sorry) but I dont know if they had some kind of mechanism for targeting in real life, like the He-111 i.e. That´s was what I was asking too. Will be the mechanism (in case they had it) modelled too ?http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Tnx a lot!

I thought TBD have two "bombsight" : one is MK XV-3 for level bomb; the other is MK XXIV torpedo direct sight for torpdedo attack. And looks like Kate have the level bombsight and torpedo sight too.

We already have level bombsight in FB, and will we have MK XXIV or any thing like it for Kate and TBD/TBF in PF?

The bombsight on the Stuka D-5 is very nice. Gives huge increase in accuracy.

Does anyone know if any of the mainstay Yank or Jap dive bombers used gyro bombsights?

Luthier1, here's a question for you on the bombsites. Will the Norden be modeled like it is in B17 Flying Fortress "The Mighty 8th"?

If not and you'd like to try, drop over to bombs-away.net and get ahold of A.C., as he IS the one that did work on the Norden for Wayward Design. But do it soon as he ain't getting any younger.

PM or email me if you want for more info on A.C.
