Hi,
quick question about flying bombers, if you approach the target on autopilot, are the bombs dropped automatically or do you have to manually release them if you are not using the auto bombsight? I'm using 1946 if it makes a difference by the way.

Thanks in advance

Steve

If the autopilot has orders to bomb for that waypoint, then it will drop them automatically.

Kind of cheating, though.

Hi
thanks for the reply, just wondered that was all, much more satisfying doing it yourself I agree and probably more accurate too I would suppose.

thanks again
