Run mersa matruh with over 60 bots and practice spotting your targets with mouse look. Then dive 90 degrees, release bombs, pull up... profit.

Download the attachments and unzip it. Find your FH2 AI folder (.../battlefield 2/mods/fh2/ai) and replace it with the unzipped files there. You may want to backup those files just in case.

The ai is set for 70 bots with 0.7 difficulty ratio. You can change that by opening 'aidefault' file wih notepad and chnaging the values in th lower lines, it's all explained in the file.

Have fun.

The best tactic for the Stuka is to copy real life.  Climb as high as possible and wait for a spot on the map of a tank or other target.  You then dive, vertically, down on it and aim using the crosshair.  Release your bomb asap and pull up to avoid the inevitable AA/fighters.

250 kg bomb is best for heavier tanks, the 4 50kg bombs are more spread out and are idea for infantry or multiple lighter tanks.

Depending on the map (view distance), you can spot enemy tanks yourself by flying at a 90 degree angle [so that one of your wings is facing the ground] and using CTRL to look down. It takes some practice to do this while keeping your plane level (it'll naturally want to go down; give a slight bumb in the opposite direction before pressing ctrl) but it's pretty usefull on maps like El Alamein. And you're already in a good ''backflip diving'' position flying like this aswell, so you won't have to pull any stunts to do the real-life Stuka bombing approach as described before.

IIRC, Sander93's tactic is closer to real-life Stuka doctrine than Kubador's - the Stukas tended to fly past their targets and drop the wingtip to spot targets, and then rolled to dive near-vertically upon them, instead of diving first and then spotting.

Plus, flying initially past the target at high altitude may help the AA gunners to think (as it historically did) that you're going somewhere else, so they might ignore you and start firing at other targets. Until you hit them from an unexpected direction, that is.

You can do a quasi-dive bomb with just about any plane. Going at about a 60-70 degree dive allows you to get a better feel for the bomb's glide path while being able to adjust for a moving target.

Another helpful tip is to try and stay fast. Getting in quick means your target can't get far, and the speed can help escape the blast. It also keeps your maneuverability up if you're in unfriendly skies.

Practice does do wonders, too as once you get the feel down you can be more confident and aggressive in your attacks (a fun one is dogfighting, seeing a ground target, and rapidly bomb it while seamlessly staying in the dogfight).

u r right, it's a hell of the fun, with so much bot to shoot at....... ;D ;D ;D

As for the bombing part, with some practice it's not tht difficult. I get 70-80% of the kills now.........using Sander93 way........I think the trick is flying past the target, then dive head on, sure to get it!!!!

By the way, I heard tht FH2.26 is out, is there any add on/improvement for SP? If there isn't any, I don think I will download it for the moment

Hey Bf109,
Single player is definitely improving. Check out the Feedback forum (Single player topic) and download Drawde AI mod....we are currently waiting for a new release where Drawde has managed to get bots firing Artillery (howitzers/nebelwerfer)...He is also working on bots understanding communication from the Commorose.
Enjoy!

1st tip that I would suggest is always be in a little drop, so if u are flying ground-parallel have the nose down about 5-10°. In the exact moment that u are pulling up, drop it. If u fail try Sanders' tactic. Dive bombing from higher altitudes is recommended, have the target in sight and drop it 2-tank-distances away, adjust/learn the trajectory.

Again, practice, practice, practice.

Agree, but it's dangerous if using the secondary bomb of the Ju87, the blast is so huge tht I got blasted twice, so I try flying higher when using tht bomb, but the accuracy suffer....

 Upon dive bombing, I usually aim with the bottom of the targeting sights. Carpet bombing, I have no clue.

EDIT: Found that not using ironsights and going and a 45 degree angle or further downward will allow you to accurately place your bombs. In real life also, the Germans used the bombsights in the bottom of the plane to spot (Use your look around key in the plane and look downward to see it) and once they spotted something, being some 10,000 feet in the air, they would swerve around going downward, diving towards the target, and then release bombs, then flying away.

do you use a stick or just mouse/keyboard?  or keyboard only?

for flying i use a stick, this helps alot with handeling the airplane, and it would definitely help you learn flying better...(but i still suck at flying in fh2.)  :P

most times i dont bother to fly, mainly because i have a problem with the no camview policy.
I know this hase been discussed, and it wont be changed... due to realism blablabla

for me this is the only downside to fh2, after being used to fly in fh1 with camvieuws for way too long

(btw we should have a poll for cam vieuws )  ::)
