I guess you mean the "Mistel". It is a Ju-88 made into a giant flying bomb, on top is a FW-190 too "guide" it to it's target.
You have to set up a mission in the FMB with one FW-190A8 (mistel) and one Ju-88 (mistel). Then assign the FW as the target on the Mistels first waypoint.

AFAIK there are no carriers in AEP.

This is a Mistel,a Ju88 flying remote bomb that is attached to FW190A8.You can fly it,but in order to do hat you must setup your on mission in full mission builder.See mission builder form for the details.

There is also a Mistel mission in the single missions section. Just don't be around when the thing goes BOOM!

There is also a Russian plane (bomber) with 2 smaller planes hanging underneath the wings like bombs. The "mother" plane releases the "baby" planes close to the target area. Great fun !!

As capt_Tenneal said......The Russian bomber Tb3 can have two I-16 fighters hanging under the wings (called parasites). It works online too.
If u want to attach your fighter to a tb3 U just taxi under its wing and "attach" (U have to assign a key in controls for this). Its a blast online.

-------------------------------------------

I almost never fly anything offline exept quick missions for gunnery practice. I dont know if there are missions for the "Tb3 with parasites" or the "mistel", so if there aren't U have to make the mission yourself in FMB= full mission builder (as carguy said).

Its quite possible that someone have done such a mission that u might be able to download.

I checked....there were parasite option in single missions.

1 go single mission
2 choose russian and the plane "Zveno-SPB"
3 now u can choose to be the parasitefighter or the tb3 bomber with parasite.
4 U have to assign a key for "attach/detach aircraft" in controls, u can do this ingame by hitting "ESC" then "controls" when mission is running.

---------------------------------------------

If u go to german side u can fly the "mistel"
choose "Fw190 F-8 (mistel) N1" to drop the mistel i belive its same key as above "attach/detach aircraft".



have fun.
