I wonder why there is no lurch when bombs are dropped?

I think that we all have noticed that when you are flying a plane with a bombload that its speed it slowed by the load. And this is obviously proper.

Furthermore, when you drop the load the speed of the plane increases, at the throttle setting you had before the load was dropped. Also the max speed of the plane can be achieved now that it is empty.

But no lurch.. wondering why thats all.

Try flying a Tb3 with 4x1000kg bombs, then you may realize that there is a "lurch."

Good! I haven't noticed it yet. Is there a lurch if you are flying fast? I usually am flying fast to ditch my eggs. Maybe thats it.

What plane are you flying? What bombs are you carrying?

The Stuka has an immensely present lurch, especially when you drop the 1800kg bomb. On the other hand, when a Sturmovik drops two 100kg bombs, there's no lurch--and I suspect that is realistic.

Correct gentlemen.

I noticed a lurch last night for the first tiem.

Flying Stuka with the biggest bomb I could carry. I think it is really subtle though..

Haven't noticed it with anything else though.

Will poke around more. I think I am flying fast.
