View Full Version : AI IL-2 drops bombs prematurely...why?

01-09-2009, 10:30 AM
Situation: online co-op, I am coming upon a German column with 2 other AI IL-2s, loaded with rockets and bombs.

I noticed in the past missions that when order them Zveno1 -> Ground Targets -> Attack all, they confirm verbally, but then the drop their bombs immediately in level flight whereever they are, and turn to go for the rocket or gun kills on the column.

What do I need to do, to make the AI wingmen drop their goddam bombs on the enemy column?

I was thinking about climbing higher for dive bombing, and aligning them towards the column before ordering the attack - but I am not sure I am on the right track... maybe someone came across this problem already and has a clue?

Perhaps the AI needs a waypoint set to ground attack? Wild guess.

Another thought: Did you try to assign specific ground targets (not Attack All but Attack tanks/etc) to the AI?
