It's like the He111, except there is a slight deviation of about 5-10% in the accuracy (that's a bug).

It's a great low level bomber and handles well.

The bombsite, well there are many tutorials about if you 'search' in these forums.

Or here is a training video I made:

Enjoy!

The TBF is not flyable in the game you must mean the SBD Dauntless. Yes the Dauntless and Aichi only carried bombs. The TBF and Kate carry torpedoes but as I said are only computer controlled.

B-25 is a level bomber with the same sight as the He-111, except calibrated in silly imperial/american (feet and miles) rather than sensible metric. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Don't give up though, are you saying you could not use the He-111? It takes practice but is fun.

in pacific fighters only the a-20 and beaufighter carry torpedoes well the only flyables and they aint even launchable from carriers wich jsut dont make sense i think we need at least one naval torpedo planes for each side flyable don cha think?

For sure, but it doesn't look like we'll be getting one anytime soon . . .

Why don't you try the IL2-T off a carrier? If ya can get a B-25 off the carrier, why not the IL2-T or the A-20? I got a dandy "kate" skinfor the IL2-T, just haven't tried it off a carrier

Just wondering about that B-25 bombsight;
Is that a Norden bombsight or something else?

Hi, I put on the Level Stabilizer On my B-25 but my plane loses height very quicky so its impossible to get a acurate bomb run. Any reasons why?

Yeah,I think it's a bug with the level stabalizer.What you can do is engage combat flaps before engaging level stabalizer{make sure you adjust your speed also}or you can trim your elevator up before level stabilizer.Happy Hunting!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Really fun but it's gonna be a challenge to master. Just wondering;
When is it useful to steer the sight sideways?

My B-25 still lost height. Maybe a patch to fix this?

I've never experienced that problem with level stab selected. What power do you have the engines set at?

HarlockGN

changman probably hit the nail on the head, you need enough power from your engines to keep the bomber level, otherwise it'll loose altitude.
The lower the height you start from the higher power you need for stable flight, over 5-6k feet remember to turn supercharger to stage 2 otherwise your speed (and altitude) will drop fast

Tomas_W:

Steering the bombsight sideways lets you compensate for the aircraft side-slipping, or flying through a crosswind. It means you can line it up, even though you're coming at it diagonally.
