I'm "enjoying" if that's the right word, the excellent "hurricane season" campaign but Man do I suck at attacking bombers. Their guns tear me to shreds every time. Especially in the 1938 Hurricane ( I miss my yak cannons!) Am I thinking right that the way to attack is to keep your speed up and make slashing runs? If I just try to tuck in behind the He 111 I seem to get toasted. Anyway I need to practice in "quick mission" before I return to that campaign. Tips anyone?

Yes. Never sit behind a bomber unless it's unarmed. Or you have Mk 108s. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

For QMB practice, I'd set up 1-2 flights of 4 bombers, and just practice slashing attacks. Maybe unarmed at first, if you need to get the hang of things.

HE-111's are easier to shoot down if you attack from higher altitude in a 30 degree or so dive. They are pretty tough but if you aim for the wings you can start some pretty serious fuel leaks and then hopefully fires.

The 1938 Hurricane we have in this game is not the same as the 1940 Battle of Britain Hurricane.

Two years is a long time in aviation development.
