So I just dropped a stick of bombs with low health.. I knew I was going to die so I unloaded to get the point prior to death... Player killed me..  No bomb explosions..  They never hit the ground.  

 

I saw them fall, but do they despawn if you're killed?

They don't despawn, I've gotten a few bombkills after death. However, next time check if you still have the bombs available when you respawn, as sometimes lag makes the game not register you dropping the bombs before getting shot down. Often I've tried to drop my bombs right before dying, only to find out I never actually dropped them at all acording to the game :amazed:

This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

As LMG said, this is likely lag, there's about a 1-2 second delay before your bombs actually drop despite hearing the sound effect. However when you do get them off and get a successful bomb kill, it is pretty funny and quite glorious.

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

if it didn't explode according to what you are saying, it means you should have the bombs at your disposal when you had respawned. Were the bombs still loaded?

There is not a setting to de-spawn bombs after death.

The mentioned lag may cause issues, but they do not just disappear.

Yeah it was likely lag then.  See my other post about server lag.

I have on more than one occasion killed fighters with bombs after my GA was dead. Glorious each time
