greetings, I,m just curious about 3 different types of stukas and it seems 2 have the stuvi which im comfortable with but the b model you can adjust the sight on the assigned keys but i dont see the forked bar. So is there a total stuka guide, I have downloaded and keep handy all the stuf fon airwarfare.

What has me most puzzled is setting bombsight altitude for a ju88 and a ju87, it sounds the horn to remind one to drop load and pull out, but dosnt the B model have a built in recovery system??
I looke din my read me files but only mentioned the stuvi, and Im doing well with it, just had to do some test dives to set the speed.

There is no stuvi sight on the B model you have to use the normal gunsight and compensate a bit (practice a bit the steeper the dive the less you have to adjust). Pullout should be automatic if you have airbrakes deployed.

Tyank you for your prompt response;yes, I have got that part, perhaps my original question was unclear. If I set the stuvi altitude to example: 1100 meters, 450 TAS does it effect the recovery system or just activate the horn at that level? it seems once i deactivate the dive brake which i have binded to my L key it effects only a partial recovery, so I guess my other half of the question is, who managed the recovery, the pilot or a height selectable system triggred by either the horn/altimiter or the dive brakes being retracted??

Ahh I see, well not sure IRL but in the game, if you have a stuvi you pull out manually at the horn altitude. In the B versions it pulls automatically. I think this is because of the design of the stuvi, at pullout it calculates a hit if you release the bomb as you pull the bar across the crosshair IIRC, assuming you kept it on the target. Check airwarfare.net there is an excellent tutorial there.
