when flying the he111, and tb3 on offline or online coop mission, and been the lead bomber of a bomber group.... it is supoustly that when the leader bomber drops it is bombs ur group will aswell drop on ur comand.... but in Il2 when u r the leader doesnt matter, as ur gruop will always bomb by them selves... so i ask u this question.... dont you think that this takes out the atractive of flying a bomber group by ai? i mean whats the point of flying all way to target in formation and bomb it, if my group will go by them selves and bomb target wiht not a single problem and score hit... so it doesnt matter if the player hits because the ai wont follow the leader and drop as the leader, as it is supoust to be done, it shuld be the responsavility of the prayer to get all the bombs of the group on target, it would add more to the bomber side of the game, please considerate this as a feature for the last patches of the game....... flying bomber formation, when u press drop, ur formation will drop, doesnt matter if u mistakenly droped ur bombs on a friendly base, ur formation shuld drop them aswell, please do this, and there are alot more to ground atacking ai that shuld obey and follow the leader better

Perhaps when BoB comes out and the crew has had a chance to digest the Heavy Level Bomber meal they've been munching on, things will be better.

There are several threads around here, (a search for "BoB" might find one for you,) where you can post what you'd like to see incorporated in the new release.

I suggest you try that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I have asked the same thing here. The only solution is to set the waypoints, ground attack points and targets so the AI bombs the target and pretend that you gave the order. The answers from all around (from Oleg too if I remember correctly, not sure) were pretty much like this "It is the way it is, deal with it. No change and can't change." So unfortunately there is no hope for actual human controlled level/carpet bombing with AI wingmen in FB.

BTW have you heard this phrase? "Possibly in BoB". Seems like BoB will be the next huge fix patch for IL-2 FB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

Aztek_Eagle its very simple , u have give the incorrect command to ure A.I. bombers or never have give tham a command.
Select atack my target and u will see that the drop the bombs on the time u drop it.
