View Full Version : Q about the SPB bomber and I-16

So I just realized yesterday that the SPB planes were intended to be used as a combo, with the I-16 launching from under the Tupoleve bomber's wing.


So I figured out how to have my plane spawn under a Tupolev bomber and to detach from it, but is there a way to have an AI-controlled I-16 detach, or is it just stuck to the Tupolev bomber forever?

if the TB3's waypoint say Attack ground the I16's will be detached.
i dont think its possible to make only 1 I16 detach

Kalle is right.
i belive only both detach.

But whats fun...and not a lot of ppl relize you can do this....is get to buddies on a DF sever online and have the pull under each wing and attach them. now that's a hoot.

hmm ok cool, I'll try it out...I was having my plane detach manually by hitting the assigned "attach/detach" key and wondering what to do to get the other guy to drop.

Yeah, this is great fun online (DF server)! Fighter(s) have to carefully taxi below the wing of the giant (fighter prop will "slice" a few inches through the wing of the bomber but nothing will be damaged), and then press "attach/detach key".

I fiddled around a bit...I think what you have to do is set the I-16's to do a ground attack, not the Tupolev.

I got them to drop by setting the ground attack target of the TB3's to the carriers on the ground.

It's fun in coop too. Two TB-3's with I-16's against each other. We have done it often in Ubizoo coops, there's probably some screenshots in the "Saturday coop" thread. I just watched some tracks I had recorded and had a good laugh.
