Could anyone please point me in the direction of a quick Stuka "how-to" dive bomb. Also is the stuka tank buster in this game??? I read in stuka pilot by hans ulrich rudel about stukas with 2 37mm cannons.
Thanks

Yep, it's the G-2 variant if my memory serve me right. The last version available in the game.

cheers.

1)Approach the target at between 1400-3500m. You can dive from higher but there's little point. Diving below 1400m makes it difficult to get your nose on the target in time.

2) Look down through the window in the cockpit floor to orientate yourself on your objective.

3) Throttle back, roll over and engage dive breaks. You may need to bind a key for the dive break control.

4) Trim the A/C for a steady dive with no yaw.

5) As you approach the ground, a warning siren will sound. This signals the minimum safe altitude for bomb release. Drop your bombs and pull out of the dive.

7) Retract dive brakes.

That's the basic procedure, though it will take a little practice to get it 100% right.

Dduff, the most important points, but your missing a few important things

the real stuka pilots dived from 4000 meters,
i havent done that much and i believer theres no point but in real life it was preferably from 4000 meters.

once you see your objektive in the floor window count to 5-10, then roll over, throttle back and engage dive brakes.

use the altitude settings for bombsight you can set which altitude you want the plane to drop at automatically. it will then pull up automatically after dropping.
very useful.
that way you dont have to think about dropping, only aiming.
onfortuatly it doesnt work in the Ju88

dont use the SC1000 or SC1800,
the plane is way too heavy.
at least thats what i think

my favorite is 4 SC50 and 1 SC500
(in the B2 model you cannot choose that)

remember it has permanent gear so dont fly too low http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

also dont pull out too low, you might get damaged by the bomb blast.

When approaching a target at +3000m, I approach from the one side, looking over my wing, turning in ever tightening circles. this way when the circle get's to tight, I know I'm more or less directly overhead.

Throttle back, airbrakes on, and roll over. On the way down, sights on target and rotate the a/c so the Artifical Horizon is level. The rest is now a stable decent. Keeping my finger on the airbrake - I hit it just after bomb release, and continue a shallower dive to ground level, building up speed for the escape. Hugging the ground and weaving all the way home, so there can be no suprise attacks from below.

Just remember when you set your bombsight altitude its ASL not AGL.

I set the bomb altitude on 0m because I do not like that automatic bomb dropping feature one bit. I want to decide myself when to drop http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
