Could anyone help me with the following problem:
I don't know how works the gunsight in Ju 88 in a dive.In level flight it"s no problem, but I don't know how to adjust speed & height in a dive-both can't be maintain at a certain level like in level flight.

For dive bombing in the JU-88, you have to use the reflector sight in front of the pilot seat. With the same keys you use for the level-bombing sight, you just have to set the altitude you want to drop your bomb from, and the speed. To know which speed you'll have when you drop your bombs, you'll have to test a bit. When you have set your parameters, dive and you'll see an horizontal bar on the reflector sight. Its position depends on the angle of dive and the parameters you've entered. Keep it on your target and when you hear the warning horn drop your bombs, you should drop on target.

I hope that my post is clear and it will help you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
