If its got bombs I got a bombardier.  I made a list and went through it systematically.  There are 140 planes in game with bombs.  3 of those have rockets or bombs in specialist configuration but rockets are the top spot; Typhoon, Tempest, Sea Hawk.  15 planes only get bombs in the stock configuration; Pegasus, Hurricane II, F4F, P-38F, Hs 129 B, F4U-1, Tornado, Me 410, F4U-4, Seafang, Me 262, Pancake, Banshee, F-84B, F-84F.

 

Ways to bomb kill;

- offensive bomb kill: drop your load while overtaking a GA or low flying plane. Easiest when a GA is flying strait because they are shooting a ground target.  You know exactly where they will go and will be lowest just before the ground target.  They start to pull up at the ground target.  

- defensive bomb kill: drop your load while being chased. Works well in a GA because you can tank his bullets and hit the brake to draw him in close.

- bomb trap: dive at the ground or edge of a cliff while being chased and drop your bomb blowing up your pursuer. Works well in a multirole when you can't get away from a faster and more maneuverable light fighter.

passive bomb kill: when you drop your bombs from a high altitude bomber and a GA or other plane just happens to get in the way.  

- bomber bomb kill: drop your bomb on a bomber and score a direct hit mid altitude.  Using strings of bombs like on American bombers on bomber flights that fly strait and at a constant speed is easiest.  If you manage to hit one with the big bombs from the EF-131 it will kill multiple bombers from the flight because the blast radius and damage are so big.

- bomb to the face:  AKA tea bagging.  When you dive on a plane from high altitude (i.e. you're in a heavy and diving on a light fighter) and he pulls up to go head on with you.  Going head on with a heavy is stupid anyway but you can add insult to injury by using your bomb sight to line him up and drop your bombs right on his eyelids.

Gratz on you 140 bombardiers, not many pilots can do this:medal:

I like the AKA Smiling Death when you are in a Ground Pounder

going head on with another Ground Pounder and drop your bomb at the 

perfect time, and as you pass each other the last thing he see's is you 

smiling because you know he is dead in 2 seconds.

There is also the AKA Really Bomb any horizontal pass with another 

plane head to head above the ground air to air, if done right you will fling 

the bomb into his plane, works great they never see it coming.  :izmena:

 Jebus lol, I might need to try that.

Except a few bomb traps in GA/MR mine are all accidental.


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