Just finished doing some test runs with the Betty and B-25. I'm sorry to say the bug is still there.

I did about five runs with each plane at different altitudes, speeds and ordnance and the TAS was still off.

Hit my target each time though... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, I like to practice on ships as they're easy to see against the water (and I'm enamored of the PBJs role in the PTO).

And while easy to see from a distance they're also tricky to hit. If you can hit a ship reliably from any angle you can pretty much hit anything else.

I use the Pacific Islands and Hawaii maps but any map with water and landmarks to help guide you will work.

Bust out the Full Mission Builder and place a ship where you like and then place your bomber at about 10,000ft (or 3000m if you prefer). Just set a waypoint towards the ship so you start out heading in that direction. I try to place my bombers about five minutes out. The ship really isn't visible at that altitude until about 4.5 minutes out so you'll have plenty of time to make adjustments.

If you want to see exactly where your bombs are hitting put a camera next to the ship and switch to it after you let loose.

OR you can check out AWL_Spinner's awesome level bombing guide. It has tables, tracks, practice missions...everything. Best guide out there IMHO.

You can find it, and other related material here:
