The last time i flew in IL-2 i was in a JU 87 an had to types of bombs. 4 small ones and one medium sized one. I had unlimited ammo on as i was practising and destroyed some tanks with my small bombs http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif but then i wanted to bomb the town nearby with my other bomb, but i tried every weapon button and 'toggle weaponpods' ( don't ask me why http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif ) but it just didn't change. Can anyone tell me how to chane it when unlimited ammo is on and the other question is what type of bomb is the cluster one which explodes like a fire work into a lot of smaller ones and where and when was it used?

You cannot drop the bigger one when unlimited ammo is on. It is because it always drops the wing bombs first and the center one second.

The one that is a cluster bomb is the AB designation

Freiwillige is correct; when unlimited ammo is on only the "first" bombs are dropped. On the Stuka these are the smaller bombs on the wing.

Turn off unlimited ammo and you drop a pair of small bombs the first time you hit the bomb release switch. The second time you will drop the other pair of small bombs and finally the large bomb.

The cluster bomb is used against area targets. Usually infantry (not in the game) or unarmored vehicles (like trucks).
