OK so this will only appeal/apply to a small minority but to start the ball rolling

MANUAL BOMBING

Ju88 4x500kg 4000m 300kmh IAS 34 degrees.

Pretty accurate for me -may not land IN plane/trucks etc you are aiming for but will certainly hit very close and take out nearby rows of targets

B25 6x500lbs 9000 feet 170mph IAS 200Mph TAS 40 degrees

AS ABOVE but 15k feet and 35 degrees

Of course for 'Automatic Bombsight' the ingame tutorial video recommends 2500m 300kmh IAS 350kmh TAS

Nothing out of the ordinary...

He-111h-6
4x SC500
320kph IAS
2000m or 3000m

Automatic bombing only, so I don't need to be at the altitude or speed exactly.

Sounds about right 300kph ias 330 tas 39degrees 3000m alt. Did you know in the ju-88 that there is a Tas gauge on the right side of the bombsight??

Any altitude - good between 15 - 20,000 feet

You can be landed back at the field with tea and biscuits when they go off.

I'm not nearly as technical with my bombing..

I'll do it at any altitude.. speeds will vary depending on whats going on around me..

Auto-sight and I make the adjustments needed to keep the cross hair locked on my target.

Works well enough to get direct hits on ships, and I can hit anything else I set my sights on.

Also- when all else fails I deploy my dive brakes and go for the gusto...

Ju-88-
Any target, any time, anywhere. All manner of bombloads... This is assuming of course that I reach my target w/o being shot to pieces by some pesky spitfire

Prien what height are you hitting those ships from ???!!! No mean feat ...Have only ever seen one guy do it ...he was hitting carrier or cruiser in Betty from 5km plus(?)Presumably stationary ship...

I've been of late doing as Prien states, But used to manual bomb with the B-25

I line up on target
then hit " Level Stabalizer"
Then I go into Bomber seat
then I adjust my Bomsight angle up so I can see where I'm going.
Then adust Bombsite Elevation.
I then check speed and adjust between the two needles.
I use rudder trim to make final adjustments on lining up the target.,and maintainig the target in the cross hairs the entire time.
Then as target aproaches I adjust Bomsight angle to 50%
I arm the bombsite once target is in the cross hairs.

Previously, I could always come close, but never 100% accurate. The difference is to set the TAS on the bombsight half way between the two needles on the wall in the B-25, as opposed to setting it to the higher or lower needle speeds. Example, if on the wall gauge in the B-25, the TAS speed is 150 mph, and the IAS is 130 mph, set your bombsight TAS to 140.....works every time.
