How do i look thru the bomb site on the ju88. I can set the sight distance and sight left or right buttons but how do i look thru the sight to see the target and bombs drop. Any help or tutorial would be greatly appreciated, thanks all.

Usually, you just press Shift-F1 to look through a bombsight. But I think the Stuvi is just on the pilot's hud. I think there is even a plaque bolted above the HUD that says Stuvi on it.

Here's a thread that talked about it a few weeks ago when 4.03 came out...

PS:
For all (most) of the bombers you have to enter your altitude and TAS (True Air Speed). But your gauges (and the speedbar) only show IAS (Indicated Air speed). So, while flying, you have to convert the IAS to TAS, and enter the TAS. There are charts and utilitys to do this for you. I am just beginning this stuff, but have found the 'Bombing Table' utility EXTREMLY helpful. Look at the bottom/right side of this pic:

I look at my Altitude and IAS on my speedbar, and enter it in this little tool. It calculates the TAS. Then I enter the Altitude and TAS into my bombsight. Very nice tool. I like my tool. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

It came with the B25 Tutorial you can download it Here (http://www.airwarfare.com/guides/b25_lbg.htm).
