I can only use the bombsight in the B-25. Are there any other aircraft with usable bombsights? I've tried using Shift F1 in aircraft like the Val and Havoc, don't these guys have bombsights?

No, they don't have bombsights. Well, in a sense the Val does, but it was a dive bomber so you use the gunsight (remember to remove the cover!).

Other aircraft sporting a bombsight like the B-25 are the He111, the Ju88 and the Betty. The TB-3 has a bombsight but it works a bit different. How it works is explained in the manual.

Don't forget the Pe-2. Its bombsight can be accessed by switching to cockpit #2 or cycling through the gunner positions.

Also, the Val and the SBD-3 have gunsights especially useful for dive bombing. These can be accessed by using Gunsight View (default key is delete). Don't forget to hit the key assigned to Toggle Reticle Dimmer on the Val (default is Ctrl-D).

Nobody mentioned the G4M Betty ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

As far as I know, all planes with bombsights are:

G4M Betty
B25 Mitchell
He 111
Ju 88
TB-3
Pe-2
Pe-3 - have both level and dive bombing capability
Ju 87 stuka
Val
Dauntless - these two sights are basically like binoculars

Now with the stuka bombsight, you just enter in the altitude you want the bombs to drop at, and they will automatically drop when you reach it. All you have to do is stay on target, and after release the plane has a built in auto-recover that will pull up as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Actually, WWSensai did mention the Betty.

The telescopic sight is only available on the SBD-3. SBD-5 doesn't have one. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

B-25J

A-20C

with 4.07 will come the
Ar234 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif



the ingame A-20G and Pe-3 have no bombsights for levelbombing because of the guns in their noses.
