Noob at this ...tried it out ...been at it now on and off (ok a LOT more 'on'!) for the last 12 hours....Man ,you think youve trouble flying stright and level to hit a bomber with your guns in a fighter you oughta try this....Is it normal to spend up to 10 minutes getting yerself "straightened up"!?And that 1 dash/line above the 3 (slip indicator?)(He111)...I loose that totally sometimes...
Arghhh....I suck at this ....why cant I stop!!!2500m at 300IAS/350TAS 2x2000Kg bombs (yep cant even hit target with those!!!)HELP!

We had a good discussions about level bombing a few weeks ago. Very good read.

Are you activating the level stabilizer in flight. It'll level your bomber while you jump to the bombadier's position. A little bit of trim might be needed afterwards, though.

Something I'd like to learn is how the heck do the 110 pilots levelbomb? I just started an offline career as a 110 pilot, and all the AI guys in the flight level bombed (at least tried) the tanks that were our mission to destroy. Needless to say they all missed, and yelled at me for 'leaving formation when I dived (dove??) down to deliver them a little more on target.

Xallo, I feel you.. =/ The AI's habit of levelbombing with attack planes is annoying. I'd advice you to just ignore those "Where the h*** are you?!" messages, and just bomb the targets as they were destroyed IRL back then; dive, (not so steep) and when you 'feel' you've got them, release the bombs. Voilá!

S!

The 110 is a plane that is in very serious need of a user-made campaign. The stock campaigns are silly with the 110's trying to level bomb.

The B-25's also need the option to tell the AI they are not to dive 7k meters down to strafe the targets they successfully level bombed 2 seconds earlier. I havn't been able to get all planes back alive even once in B-25 campaign.

I always fly as the lowest rank guy as I really liked all the neat promotions I got as a IL2 bomber, the first campaign I played when the game was new. Realy hard to keep AI alive when you can't give orders to them.

I too enjoy level bombing, and am fairly proficient with the Betty. My problem is that on most servers I fly on (Zekes vs. Wildcats usually)I'll get one sortie in and the map ends because all the fighter drivers are trying to be Bong/Hartmann/Sakai instead of attending to the mission goals.

And you are THE man to do it, at least that is what your Custom User Title says, HEHE But seriously Zues-Cat, I believe there are enough bomber enthusiasts here that would truly enjoy a decent camapign for this ac and level bombing with it. When you can find the time, can you come up with a campaign, and maybe have of of these level bombing gurus be your test m8 to test the missions as you go? I am pretty sure you could get one of them to help in its' creation.

Another good suggestion would be to have the bombers in your flight drop their bombs on YOUR command. It gets really annoying when you have bombers in your group miss the target completely. We as humans know what to target and all the ai wingmen bombers would just need to be togeliers.
