I was trying to mid-air bomb a Junker with a 500lb from my La-5 I think it was... took a dozen attempts and still never got him. Oh it'd be so fun.

If you've got screenshots or videos, would be fun to see.

Never ever even tried! I've gotten a He-111 or two with a pair of RS-132s though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Formation of He-111 + Il2's with PTAB bombs. Oh so lovely!

Would be interesting if the bombs could be set with a time fuse. German fighters did actually bomb American daylight B-17/24 formations, Heinz Knoke mentions it in his book. But trying to score a direct hit against a flying B-17 or B-24 would require a very lucky drop indeed.

Not exactly the same thing, but.....

I attacked a Stuka up close from below (best way to avoid the rear gunner) and the Stuka dropped its bomb and started evasive action. I dived to pick up speed so I could follow... and flew right into the bomb. Got blown to bits. Most embarrasing.

I wonder if that ever happened in real life.

Two, three years ago, someone posted screen shots of an enemy bomber plowing into a torpedo from an IL2-T- Or a friendly doing same, I foget, but was pretty odd.

We have this squad-coop...TB3-dogfight in the mountains....bombing each other is the funniest tactic involved, but, really hard!

Somebody had a really nice sequence of frames showing how it's done with a Do-335 when it first came out. I can't remember the thread, though.

Yes, in the original IL2 - just to see if it could be done (I'm often trying things, just to see if they can be done) - Napalm on a flight of ME323 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Yes I have developed Bomb_BnZâ© FB technique http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif which allows player to succesfully destroy enemy bomber. I've posted this some time ago in one thread.

For further clarification - what this exactly means, look at the track provided. Plane used: IL-2. Bomb delay set - best on 10sec.

Fragmentation bombs work, regular SC, or Gen Purp (GP) dont do a thing

I bombed myself once...not getting caught in the blast either, I mean hit myself with the bomb, took my wing off.

Got jumped, pulled up and pickled off the bomb at the same time.
rolled the plane, and started into a bank, looking out my window searching for my tormentor...just in time to watch my lobbed bomb fall right thru my wing..well not so much as thru it as for taking it out on a date. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

I also once was able to put a P-11c down on the back of a Me-323. It took me two and half hours and more than 20 virtual lives, but d@mn what was cool!

I have only done it once.
It was in a dogfight mission were I by accident released my bombs on my squadmate.
He was flying directly under me and I couldn't see him. He as me was looking through the bombsight so he didn't noticed that he was flying directly below me. My bombs riped off his wing, sadly I don't have any pics of it.

Accidently with direct bombing once, yes, but dozens of times indirectly, by dropping a bomb to get the guy on my 6.

sure - tb-3s with i-16 (2x100kg I think it was).
(map- finland, UKDed1 server)
i tried it just once, 5 times during the length of the map. the first time i got a direct hit, the second I missed, the third I missed the bomber but the ground explosion got him, the 4th I missed again and the 5th I set the bomb delay too little and exploded with the bomber (but did hit him).

anyway - the bomb delay doesnt matter - its the bomb hits themselves that break the tb-3s.
