how do you see each building as a dot on bomb sight?

Do you normally bomb from very high altitude?

About 3000m they merge into 1 dot, below that you'll see individual dots for each building.

I think zooming in when above that threshold does show the individual dots again but don't bomb from that altitude often so may be remembering wrong.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

I try to bomb from about 12000 and up, is there a way to have them not merge altogether?

At 12k, your going to be missing every targets on the ground.  :facepalm: Even when flying the tier 8 bomber that's way too high. Try using these numbers  for better % on hitting targets. Tier 3 & 4, try 5000,to 6500 feet. Tier 5 thru 7, - try 6000 to 7500Tier 7 & above, try 6500 thru 9000. Now do understand base on Defensive fighters & real players, you might want to adjust you altitude to stay alive, & out of harms way.:great: Fighters really don't want to climb that high & waste all their boost to get you, when their are easier targets for them to hit.:B Heavy's are busy doing their Zoom & Boom, so unless you accidently fly close to their crosshairs, they tend to leave you alone at those heights.:kamikaze: But if a heavy fighter is hunting bombers, expect him to be around and then use your gunner seat as often as you bomber sight.:izmena: Always ...always .....watch your radar, you'll see him coming..:playing:.Good Luck......Hunting & Bombing targets. Hope this helps:coin:

I do not miss my targets at 12K though...when I get to a target I drop two payloads and that always kills the target then I use the rest to just "straif run" so to speak and I do hit my targets

Was screwing off with the T3 British bomber, not normally a bomber player, dropping from 2500-3000m (9842.5ft) and hitting just fine.

You posted & asked for help with the bombers. Having over 1,500 mission on my bombers, thought I'd share what seems to be working, based on those different missions and bases. Every mission & every map is different, ( so based on what you encounter ), you'll need to adjust those parameters based on players & bots on your mission. Most.....( repeat ) most ...targets can be taken out with 1 bomb drop. If it take 2 drops to take out 1 target, at 12,000​ , then you are only doing 50% of damage for your team. Which means the other team bomber is capping you and your team at ....2  to 1 and your team, will be playing catch - up.:facepalm:  All I did was share, based on battle experience in the bomber,.... some good advice that seemed to work for me. :coin: Your choice....Use some of it.....or none of it.:great:

well..there was times when I did just need to press space bar once at 12000, I just hit 2 to make sure I really do kill the target other times I just spread it out

a few months ago, i was heavy into bombers and then i stopped dead...  no idea why, i did and still do enjoy them

 

still fly the T3 blennie occasionally on the first flight of the day to check ping and packet loss...  always have fun, but i'm just not a good bomber

I guess at T6 and T8 some skill is required, but at T3 pretty easy.  This was a game today just screwing off for xp and credits, dropping from around 2500-3000m.
