It would be nice if AI bombers (with internal storage) cease with their bad habbit of dropping bombs *immediatelly* (that should take some time) when they are hit. And at the same time crew is bailing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif .

Also I have noticed that most of the bomber crews (even heavy B17 and B29 --info from the clip with KI84's--) are also bailing immediatelly when their engine is on fire. Even only one engine.

I think they bail with only one engine on fire is that atleast for the B-29s, they needed ALL of their fuel and engines to make it to the target and back, and with a dead engine, they didnt have a chance. and as for the bomb drops, i agree, we do need to have them atleast open the bay doors first. but what i really want to find happen is the ability to hit bombs and detonate bombs while they are still in the planes.

I'm pretty sure this is already in FB. Although it's hard to make it happen. But it probably should be.

Edit: Not sure if they are not in the bomb bay. Hell, I'm not even sure the big explosion you get once in a while is from the bombs exploding or something else...

Wouldn't they at least try to straggle back to base?
