I have recently tried the ju-87. I am having trouble hitting my target. I have tried 1/4 time and I swear I am releasing the bomb right on the target before pullout. Im close, but no cigar. Any advice?

Thanks

The best tactic in dive bombing is to fly over the target at 2500-3000 m. When you are close to the target gain some speed , lower your nose but not that much , you don't want to loose lotta altitude. you look just for speed/energy.Immediately after you pass the target pull up , tight! , this will cause your plane to loose a lot of energy , lower flaps , idle throttle and look for the target. You have plenty of time because you must be gaining an extra 500m in your first maneuver and at this point you have a low speed. You must be at almost 90 deg to point your aim over the target , even so , aim just a bit ahead , just in case. Big bombs will blast almost anything on a pretty big radius. There must be some tracks somewhere , that's the way I learned though...

have you assigned the dive-brakes to a button? The dive brakes really help slow you down and get a steady bead on the grnd target... the siren sounds pretty cool too (VVWWWRRRrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, click....... BPFFPHoOOOOm! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I sight the ground target through the window in the floor, do a 180 barrel roll inverted, pop on the dive-brakes and go vertical.... aiming at the target, of course-

See you around /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Dont lower your flaps at all. I was doing some dive bombing on some tank columns last night. I was approaching at about 1500 meters. Make sure you have your airbrake configured. As soon as you are on top of the target, hit your airbrake (you'll know when its on cause the sirens on the wings start screaming) and roll over and pull back on the stick. this will put you in a dive straight down on your target. The airbrake will keep you going slow and steady, cant miss. It also makes a loud warning sound when you need to pull out. Also , when you are lined up with your target, you can start your roll and dive right when you see the target appear in the hole on the floor of the cockpit.


Hope this helps...

Bamatt has the right idea, no flaps and use dive brakes. Fly directly over the target, roll onto your back, pull the stick back and you can look 'upwards' and watch the target come into view in front of you, then aim and release.
