Since the earlier releases, I have realized something. The Stuka now does an auto pull-out for you, like it should. I was happy, because in earlier fb versions, this didn't happen for me. I was quite a good stuka bomber, but now, I don't know what happened. I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn after 30 minutes of practicing on her today. I believe there might be a couple of factors at work.

First, and this is most likely, The auto recovery system pulls up from 700 to 1000 meters! this hardly even gives me time to aim precisely, it is even difficult to get right on target at 3000! In real life were the altitude settings this high? in a dive going only 300 or so kmph this seems a little much.

Second, and this is only a guess, During the auto recovery, it also drops the bombs automatically. Does this have any strange affect throwing the bomb off course?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Just for your information, you can set the auto drop altitude yourself, with the "increase/decrease bombsight altitude" keys. If you want a manual drop, just set the altitude to 0.

I've often wondered that myself, another think why is it when bombing with a group after they drop their bombs, and your diving, your plane automatically retracts dive brakes and levels without you dropping your bombs?
