quite a guide here.  I haven't tried it yet, but I might soon.

I see the common elements from IL2:1946 are there, with bombsight automation , etc...

In an answer to the failure of the high altitude bombing. I made two low level runs on the tanks. 4 250 lb bombs released from about 300 feet @ 250 mph from a dive made hits both time and eliminate the target and made it home. With 2 Blenheims this target can be eliminated most of the time.

I think this will still be most effective at this point.

Jimbob shows some level bombing from "3k feet" - I can certainly try it.   There is a mission in that first post, I haven't tried it yet, but doing some offline testing would be good.

The other issue is just find these targets when we fly - the ships are easiest to see and bomb - but it would be fun to hit some ground targets.

I'm attempting to see if there is a way to get a Br.20 on our side like the SOW war.

I miss flying bomber, but I might have to give up on it for the Allied side.

I could fly the He111, but then I'd be flying against my squad every night and I'm not really interested in that.  He111 seems hard to setup as well, so this would be quite a commitment.

Had my first successful skip-bombing strike on a ship last night. Great fun!!!
I'm in favor of looking more into doing joint bomber/fighter missions with the guys on Wednesdays now.

+1 That is great Gos!!!

I'm looking forward to more missions together with this - it was fantastic having a comrade on ship raids  :)

I know it's fun to shoot down an enemy plane, but there isn't much better in flight simming than watching your bomb successfully hit and destroy something!!!
