(This is not a flame thread. No morals. No politics. No right or wrong. No nothing at all except a statement about the graphics with the new patch. Please rant somewhere else.)

Not sure if it's just me or a graphical improvement with the patch, but the 5000kg bombs from the Pe-8 look much better. Great flash and shockwave. Would love to see these things available on the B-29. Could make for some great missions.

Anyone else notice the improvements?

what I want to know is what did that puppy do to that carrier? Is there anything left under that plume of smoke?

The Japanese carrier?

Unscathed. Weird.

Unscathed? After being hit with 5.5 tons of TNT?

Might it be the same problem as Anti Ship attacks with the Mistel ? There was a thread about a month ago, with screenshots where a carrier steamed placidly on after a Mistel hit.....

Yep No damage with Pe-8 or Mistel.
I tried it a bunch of times.
But want to sink a carrier in 30 seconds ?
Skip bomb in a He111-6 (w) 2x2000lb SC's "0" delay
The problem is getting out of the way in that tub.

Morning glory. Just for fun.

Seriously though, there must be a way to get this sucker on a B-29.

Which plane can carry such thing ? Looks like B17 .. do I need AEP+PF ? I can't see the bomb anywhere.

well, every ship i know of would sink in less than 30sec after being hit with a Armor Piercing bomb, or was that the PC??

I believe i read somewhere that european type planes from original FB cannot damage ships from PF, only can damage ships from FB. Try nuking a different ship http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Bloody hell! If that's a mere 5,000 pounder I'd hate to see what a Lancaster dropping a 22,000lb Grand Slam would look like!

they have been vary polite about this issue, I respect that


The only thing that concerns me now is the issue of why a 5000 pounder cant hurt a carrier http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

CrazyIvan1970,

Nope, no politics, no moral indignation, just a discussion about the PF eye candy factor.

As mentioned above, I found the flash to be new with the patch. Or maybe it came with PF. Not sure.

But light one of these suckers off at daybreak or dusk and it's a real graphical treat. Do it in the water and watch the shock wave and smoke ring blow past the ships. Very cool.

IL-2 doesn't model overpressure, etc, from near misses. It looks to me like the bomb did not hit the carrier in the screenies. If it did not, then it will do nothing, despite the impressive appearance. If it did hit the carrier, then I have no explanation for why no damage was done.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

It's actually a 5000 Kg bomb, which according to my calculator is 11,023 lbs or about half the weight of a grand slam bomb. The grand slams however were designed to deeply penetrate the ground causing an earthquake effect and did not produce a particularly large surface explosion !

I tried it out yesterday...
a direct hit with 5000kg or 2000kg will sink carrier but not generic battleship

the BB took 3x PE8 loads of 1x2000 + 2x1000 without sinking, then it took another 3 pairs of tiny tim to put her under!!!
