The other day I was flying a bomber with 2 1000lb bombs and 1 2000lb bomb. When I press botton 4 on my joystick the 2 1000lb bombs drop. I just can't seem to get the 2000lb bomb to drop. Is there a key I need to remap to switch which bombs drop?

try limited http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

as with unlimmited, the first release of bombs are (mostly) the wingbombs , they never will be empty - so the fuselage bomb will never be released - weird but fact since 3 years http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hey Kit Kat, I think I saw you on the warbirds server on HL the other day. I'm guessing that you were in a corsair?

One thing that bugs me about this game, is that the fighters seem to carry more bomb's than the bombers.

On one warbirds server mission, it states to grab a DA3 or something (Jap bomber with a rear gunner), but the payload is 1x250kg and 2x60kg bombs to destroy US shipping. Then it says "or fly escort for these."

But then you take an escort (KI-81/4?), and find it'll take 2x250kg bombs and once those bombs are drop, you have an excellent fighter left with you, rather than some hulking crappy slow bomber lol.

And the same goes for the US side as well. The B25 holds something like 12 50lb bombs, but the corsair (i think) will hold 4000lbs worth of bomb (1000 more than b25) and turns into a fighter once delivery is over.

Online I go for the best advantage, obviously, so why bother giving players a choice of a plane that is a bomber, but carries less bombs than a fighter? This detracts from the game for me, because then nobody uses the bomber because they won't do as much damage, and it doesn't seem very realistic.

Surely the bombers should have an advantage of some sort? I can't seem to find it lol

in reality range and navigation ability counted - Dogfightservers are more a gunslinging yipie festival !

good point in flying COOP missions , the missiondesigner can restrict the weapons there - so, only bombers will have bombs if he want

Take a bomber or any attack aircraft. Fly low and take a BIG detour that will let you to attack the enemy base in the backside. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You can make two or three passes at most and fly back along the same route, not directly to your own base. If you are lucky, you might be able to vulch one or two aircraft and make a bit of fireworks. And you get out in time before the enemy knows what had hit them. Great fun and a bit more intresting gameplay in a standard aerial-quake server http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
