Hi,

I am sick and tired of using He-111's and TB3's to hit trains and convoys, I wanted to bomb those nice industrial zones found around the maps, unfortunately (on campaign mode) I couldn't make my bombers drop at all over a "fake" target which is an industrial complex in a city, is there anyway to do some strategic bombing in Il-2(FB, my Aces is still on the way)? Like in B-17 where they use the "Bomber Runner" trick to make all the bombers on your formation drop when you (leader) drops.

Would it be possible to "mod" this into the game?

No need for mods. Download missions where industrial areas are set as targets, or make your own in the Full Mission Builder. If you need tips & tricks for the FMB, there's a mission builder forum here.

Yeah it is simple but it would be cool to implement it into the game so that industral cities can be bombed instead of having a flight of 4-6 bombers going after a bridge or convoy every single time.

"Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary force:
You are about to embark upon a Great Crusade toward which we have strived these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking" - Gen. Dwight D. Eiseinhower-Supreme Allied Commander.

You can get bombers to bomb general areas, you don't need to set bridges or convoys as targets every time. Any industrial area can be selected for bomb drop.

I've had no problmem blowing the stuff out of ground targets other than convoys and bridges. I've leveled entire industrial targets as well as airfields.
