On the HISTORIA server they have many missions with the AI heavies with airstarts. it's done this way becuase we know how to level bomb with the AI planes. The result of this is a more accurate air battle. it's not uncommon to have a formation of human pilots in b-24's or b-17's bombing from 15,000ft or 24,000ft and being accurate. The fights for the escorts and the bomber interceptors are more interesting. Blue pilots love using thier mk108s on the juicy bombers.

here is how its done, best info at the bottom of thread:

after you get the hang of it. Drop by the HISTORIA server and try it out. It's not a DF server or a Co-Op server. It's more of a Missions server. Skins are on and icons off.

you can get the skins for the missions here:

What about us poor sods that fly cockpit on? Any way to make it work using the bombsight crosshairs?

Cheers!

The point of the thread is that the aircraft are AI.
So they don't have a cockpit (by definition).
Which is why these guys are lining up using exterior view; there is no bombsight in these aircraft.

a few of us were very accurate at 9-10 k when the 380thBG was around...now i think its just me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

i remember soo many times being on servers having the enemy say "wheres the invisible bomber???" theres a hack!....or are bombers above us??

after telling them im at 9~10 k..usual response was "nobody can do that at THAT altitude"

and the principle that was applied is VERY close to what you have http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

even if we were off target ..it was usually close enough to instill some fear. they knew we would be up for another trip.

great post!
