Regarding Bombers and Attack Aircraft: Could it be possible to be able to have Level-Bombers, such as the TB-3, He-11, B-25, etc. release bombs one-by-one. If I remember correctly, at one time they used to in FB. I fly bombers most of the time and having to relese two at a time is sort of a handicap. If you select 6x500lbs. or some other loadout you essentially only have half the ordanance to release. I think the way the bombs drop now is good for Ground Attack Aircraft and such, but I was hopping that maybe the release of ordanance could be specific to various aircraft types. I understand this would probly be a low priority topic for the Dev-team to address with the upcomming BoB project, but it would be nice to know if this could be possible to do without any major code changes. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm all for this suggestion TriggerHappy

I'd like to see the option for fighters to single fire their rocket ordinace as well. I've seen this on footage of the period as well as a salvo option that fires off all of the rockets at once.

Sounds good! I have also an other idea for level bombing: Could it be possible to have a key to set the time between the bombs drop by automatic bombsight?

yeah most had salvo or single or double (erm 2 and 4 rockets, 1 or 2 from each wing) pilot set it before attack..
depended on target, on a hot target u would fire all at once or rippled, otherwise ud use a pair...

going from typhoon book i read, they often fired cannon too. a flight or squadron could unleash devistating firepower in seconds http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

and yes on the bombs that would be nice, double the length of the stick or trail http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
