Hi,

Maybe it it just me, but I need to set the delay to 0 seconds, or the bomb will not go off. Instead, you will see a water splash on the ship's hull (true!) and nothing happens. I've tried it on several occasions, and first I though that my aim was bad.

Historically I thought that a fuse delay was used in order for the bomb to penetrate the hull. Furthermore, with the 250 kilo bomb without delay, your own plane will be damaged. Embarrasingly, my only historica reference is the movie "Pearl Harbor" where the Japs seemed to use delay.

What gives? Bug?

Regards,

Hi,

I'm not mentioning skip bombing. I'm talking dive bombing.

yep it sucks
a bomb inside will do WAY more damage to the hull

its a real shame, perhaps they could put in a slice of moving land to hold the bomb in teh ship, or some other work around http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

That sucks indeed! Never heard about it not supposedly working. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

While delaybombing a ship doesn't work, something much more strange *DOES* work! I am ofcourse talking about the dreaded and much loathed delaybombing chuted pilots of which I am so known for (ahem).

It will also do that if you delay-bomb an enemy plane.

The bomb will vanish at the point of impact, hover there, and explode in midair once the delay is up.

If the bomb happens to be over water at the time, it will also throw up a mid-air plume of spray.

No dice so far with 3 games and a bajillion patches, so I am hoping the bombs will be fixed in BoB...
