I'm at the start of a new stuka campaign with the DGEN but I have one problem during missions and that is when I make the dive attack, I always lose my landing gear in the dive, I use the airbrakes but that doesn't seem to be enought, any ideas? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

In May 1942, Nazi submarines sank two Mexican tankers, and Mexico declared war against the Axis powers. Thus forming the 201st Mexican Fighter Squadron equipped with the P-47D and sent to fight in the Pacific

Maybe you forgot to pull your throttle back ? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

LoL, no I pull back the throttle to 0% power and still my landing gear "breaks" from the aircraft

Make sure your speed is less than 250 kph prior to intiating the dive is higher than 3500 meters.

I don't mean to hijack your thread but does anyone have any tips on climbing to the bomb alt? In some servers I've felt the need to bomb something so I took the Stuka for a spin. It seemed to climb like a rock no matter what I did.

Take off, fly level till you hit near 280-300kph, start your climb dont but dont exceed more than 20 degrees inclination, keep it at about 10-15 degrees, every so often level your aircraft to pick up speed if you loss to much.

Try this:

Divebombing in the Ju87 Stuka (http://www.naysayers.com/9jg52/stuka/sturz.htm)

Don't think the track will work, it was recorded before the .ntrk became the standard.

But the lessons still apply.

One of the biggest faults is not adjusting the prop pitch. Its variable for a reason. you cant expect your aircraft to perform if you have it 100 prop and max throttle. Its like revving the tits off a car in first gear...... In reply to the stuka question, I have a few questions. Firstly what sort of alt are you trying to get to and are you using the supercharger at the corect alt( I usually wait untill about 3100m, but mainly you will notice the engine revs pick up a little)? Also, when you start your dive, are you diving vertically or at a very steep angle? And using divebrakes is not always enough... are you using combat flaps too?
I open the rad to full open, (give the engina a chance to cool down while im in the dive), step down to supercharger 1 ( for coming out of the attack, with all the flak and fighters I usually forget if I dont do this first, lol) also you can lower the prop pitch even more to control the speed ,(but remember to take it back to 85-90 % to egress the target.)
And lastly, what alt do you bomb at? I know a lot scream down to practically zero meters, but you need good timing to get away with that and its unnecerssarily dangerous, (easy meat for fighters). As long as you take your time and get setup properly on your targets, you can start a desent from , say 3000m, and as long as you hold the sight firmly on the target, you ought to successfully bomb from 500m or above. No need to hit the deck everytime, which is what you must be doing to lose the undercarriage. The aircraft control surfaces would jam tight if too much speed is picked up, then you hit the ground unable to pull up out of the dive. I dont know any other reason for the gear coming off, other than collision.

There are a lot of people, who say, that bombing can never win a war. Well, my answer to that, is that it has never been tried yet, and we shall see.
