I was in my Hellcat lastnight over Okinawa and dove on the enemy field. Just fooling around doing some UQMG stuff. I release a pair of 550 pounders at about 1500 ft or so aiming at the row of hangars. I pull up and come back around and fire off some rockets. I was recording all this on a quick track.

When I played it back I saw my bombs disappear as soon as I released. They did explode and create damage, but I used to be able to see them all the wy down. Has anyone else noticed this?

typical trak. Usually on a regular track a lot of things show up missing. if you press record trak during play it will get everything but when you save a track st the end many things get missed. At least thats my best guess!

In the tracks I have recoreded by activating the recorder, all events and effects are present and the bombs disappear when they explode, but not before.

No but I noticed that drop tanks & ordinance will disappear when you fold your wings.
