I think a good way to get some tips, would be to view "stuka ground attack" in the training section of your game. By watching the screen, you may pick up some info on power, & prop pitch.

D-5 is the hot ticket as it has the Stuvi sight. The Stuka is one of my favorite planes offline - the best practice is to get in qmb, switch to unlimited ammo, and jsut go blow everything up. Always attack parallel with the target, always start from at least 2500meters (I prefer 3000), pushing over generally is better than rolling onto target, and forget messing with the mixture,prop, etc...just focus on a nice stabalized dive onto the target - if you are still trying to line up when you hit the release you will always miss.

There is an X on your HUD that marks where the bomb will hit.

There is also more info in the Readme_v403.rtf file in your install directory.

Don't know any mission/campaigns offhand. I just setup a quick mission in the FMB to practice it a little. I'm not very good yet and am now trying to level bomb with the B25's bombsight.
