View Full Version : He111 level bombing walk through

08-14-2005, 06:18 AM
Can any one give me a walk through on the HeIII bombsite? I've got all the keys mapped; but have no idea what to use them for.

I wouldn't normaly bother with Buffs; but I've just started a Japaneese campaign that; for some reason; has had me flying I-153's and now has me flying an HeIII.

I know nothing of level bombing in IL-2 (in fact; I'll have to get in the shower now; yuk; a BUFF!)

Here it is in least number of words. Someone will be around with a tutorial shortly.

1. Fly toward target
2. Engage level stabilizer
3. Make speed constant
4. Switch to bombardier
5. Set speed (estimate) and altitude (above ground).
6. Look in sight (shift F1)
7. Raise sight elevation until on target (use rudder trim to steer left and right, easiest with a dial or slider)
8. Enable bombsight automation.
9. Adjust bombsight speed up/down until the crosshair is perfectly synchronized with target
10. Keep crosshair synchronized with target until bombs drop

You could also use a table to lookup your TAS speed, or use wonder woman view.
