Could we have a Tas speed gauge in Bombers in the near future or next addon?
The same like the red dial on the lower left side and just above that
Or that it is just avaible while looking through the bombsight. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif
When we are flying bombers we have to do every thing that in reality 2-4 mens did...we navigate,make the target approach,adjusting bombsight... all at the same time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
It would be just fair to have these basic speed info at hand http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

The B-25 has a TAS guage on the left panel of the Bombers seat(has 2 needles on the guage the higher one being TAS) it is fairly accurate comparing to Bombsight Table 2's numbers so I use it with decent results tho I use Bombsight Table 2 when Im level bombing in 111's and 88's

Ju88 has also a TAS gauge below the Lotfe.
He111 has a gauge above the Lotfe, but it shows IAS (maybe a bug?).

yeah I can see a gauge in the 88 but at my high Res its completely unreadable and yes the 111's guage is incorrect seems to read neither TAS or IAS but appears to be somewhere in between

with my method of bombing its of little use cos how screwy the game is...

Well I will admit Im not as accurate bombing in the B-25(may be a speed factor) but I hit my targets pretty much 90% of time in the 111's and 88s as long as I get my numbers right

is the B25 bombing bug been fixed or do we have to still subtract 5 or 10% from TAS.

If you're bombing strictly by the numbers your results will naturally be less than stellar. Pay a little attention to what the crosshairs are doing and you won't have to bother with TAS (or IAS for that matter) at all.
