I got the IL2-46 version and in the training tracks it says to refer to charts you receive with Pacific Fighters to determine what true airspeed you are flying at certain heights, these weren't included in this version. Could anyone please link me to copy of one of these type of charts?

Just a suggestion, you may be able to determine it for yourself (if you receive no better help), use "cockpit off" view and speedbar.

Speedbar contains IAS numbers, while "comic gauge" of "cockpit off" view contains precise TAS numbers.
Use it on popular heights (1,500m, 2,000m, 3,000m whatever is your fav bombing run height).
And compare, it may be the good way of determination, like I say - if you get no better help.

Is there some sort of bug with the B-25? I can get direct hits with every other bomber however the B-25 bomb computer always releases the bombs way to early. I watched this video:
http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/1101043355
and followed what it said, which was what I was doing already in the other planes, but it always releases early. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
EDIT:
The problem was the bombsite was in Feet and MPH lol, Im Australian so I use metric speed bar http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

I just completed the single He-111 mission, take-off and landing scoring a direct hit on the ship. I notcied on my map that it was orientated on a grid line so I flew north until I met it then swung around dead east and lined myself up. Set up my alt and speed into the site than bombs away!
After bomb release I caught flak on my left wing and lost fuel so I made an emergency landing on the nearest airfield behind my line.
Great feeling finaly finding my spot in the game, definitly not a dogfighter http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
