    Hello,

    New to the game and really liking it. Tried lots of the fighters and would like to try a bomber now. So....how do you bomb? Is it all manual or is there an automatic mode too? Is there a guide to learn how to do the manual bomb runs? Thanks

    thanks to you too tigertalon. very helpful.

    i don't have a manual and I am at work so that is why I am so clueless about the bombing. any info on how the auto bombing works?

    Auto bombing? Jump to a turret, and the auto pilot should take over to bomb.

    No need to appologize!

    If forced to pick one, A20C! The thing climbs so fast even with full bombload that early (41/42) era escort fighters have trouble keeping up with it! Empty it can outclimb Fw190A!

    Next on my list are Ar234, G4M, Pe2,...

    if you stay in the pilots seat do the bombs drop automaticly? also if I auto-bomb do I need to adjust the settings on the sight myself?

    thanks again.

    Well I always drop them manually. With a bit of practice you can sink a battleship with a direct hit from 7km altitude.

    Manually calculating angle, checking speed, aiming for target etc. is very, very immersive and addictive. Do not try to avoid this part of the sim, you are gonna love it. Procedures are all described in the manual I posted.
