I know this has been posted several times before but I can't find it on the forum.
Yesterday I tried to fly against a formation of 3 B17's with my Me262. Just for fun I added some bombload to the B17's (8x100lb). What happend is that after hitting one of them with a few shells it did explode, causing a second one to explode aswell and the third one loosing it's elevator. Is this kind of behaviour usual (never flown against bombers with bombloads before)?

That's quite normal if you hit the right spot.
Try flying against Pe-8s with the 5000kg bomb. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Just shoot from a distance when flying againest PE-8 with 5000 bombs, they have the Dr. Strangelove effect. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
