Unfortunately the game drops bombs in the order it chooses. So, if you have bombs underwing and one on the centerline, just keep hitting the bomb-drop key and eventually they'll all jettison. Too bad it doesn't allow armament panel selection by the pilot. A "salvo" option would be good if you got bounced and needed to rid your aircraft of the excess weight in a hurry.

You can not drop bomb that is in center if you have selected "Unlimited Ammo"=ON. For instance on Ju-87 you can select 2x250SC + 1x500SC and with "unlimited Ammo" on, you will be dropping 250SCs only, without being able to drop 500SC.

Now that is some awesome idea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I have been in many such situations where I was in need to drop as many bombs as possible at once, but often I was unable to drop 'em at time, and I had to do a second pass.

Or if you are a noobie, that center bomb
just might be a drop tank, in which case
you can hit the Weapon 4 button all day
and it will not help one bit! LMAO

That definately would be a nice extra feature. Still, just tap the key a few times...bombs away. I've never had a problem with that.

What Atomic_Marten said:- Turn on the "Limited Ammo" difficulty setting. You must drop wing pylon bombs before the centreline will drop and with unlimited ammo you never run out of wing bombs.
