How to bomb target accurately?
« on: 10-06-2010, 14:06:17 »
Recently I begin to love bomber and try to bomb enemy target(esp tank) but the accuracy is only abt 50%, trying to drop bombs sometimes too early sometime too late, in fact it's like by chance to get a kill. Any tricks on using bomber will be appricated... ???

Try using a dive bomber tactic, it generally works with the bombers in-game. Best time to drop the bombs when in dive is right when the target just goes out of sight in cockpit (cant see it through window) as if you look back once dropped it will generally hit close to the target and due to large explosive radius kill the target.

.....anyway that's how i do it, just be careful not to fly to close to ground when dropping the bombs as you can kill yourself easily. i have died on many occasion from this but once perfected is a nice easy way to drop bombs  ;D

Agreed but with the P51 bombing can be a little tricky. Because the blast radius of those bombs are huge. I've seen alot of people making that mistake in servers including myself :3

yeah i takes a while until people understand that dropping a 500kg bomb 10 meters above ground is not a good idea if you wanna keep flying

Fly high, wait for tanks spots or choose well known AA or Anti tank gun places.
Now perform a steep dive, press shift (if Stuka) to put the fear of God in them, release bomb when target is visible. Release the bomb just before you start pulling up.

With the Allied planes you can take a horizontal approach and release the bombs two seconds before overshooting the target.

I don't think Doopie ever got killed in the Stuka by the enemy. He always seems to blow himself up before they can. :D

It really take some practice to make the dive bombing perfect. However, if the target is moving fast, a dive bombing will be much more diffficult. I like the horizontal apporach but the timing is always the problem.

Also it take me flying over the "supply depot" 3-4 times to refil bombs, is there any better way to refill bombs while flying over only once?

I don't think so, the point of the game is that you land to rearm and repair your plane so you should not be able to do that in the first place.

The reason is that otherwise planes would be bombing non stop making it impossible the enjoy the game for the infantry because they are constantly bombed.

yeah that, I still remember in FH1 when I drive another tank out of the main for like a few seconds the stuka who had just bombed me returned  :(, it is worse if the bomber flies fast. Those are some hopeless "plane-rapes".

and with barely any AA to counter them

So far I used only Ju87, never had a chance to use beaufighter.......cuz I am always on the German side... ;D ;D ;D

After trying for X number of times using Ju87 for bombing, I found out a "way" to increase my kill.

First, fly towards the target with the plane's nose pointing directly the target, when u r abt to reach(or the word "crash" is more accurate) the target, drop the bomb and at the same time "tip" up the plane. Then the bomb will directly hit onto the target. Just one point to note, since Ju87 carry 2 kinds of bomb, the second type of bomb (80kg if I am not wrong) is very devastating, meaning the blast radius is rather wide, and I got "blasted" out from the sky a few time using my method of bombing, so I do horizontal bombing when using this 80kg bomb.

Do try it out and give me some feedback........ ;) ;) ;)

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.

I agree with u, but just tht u hav to wait until someone report u the enemy location, cuz u virtually can't c anything with tht height...
