Bombing Tips

Post by Ace Lord » Mon Feb 14, 2011 1:56 am

Taken from my in-progress Instruction Manual titled "Trio of Total Destruction" these tips will help you use the fat, slow, and lumbering Heavy Bombers of YS to greater ability. This manual will not be available to the public once complete, and this is the only information I have allowed myself to freely post.

1. Try to line up a cluster of while you're still out of range. Use rudder to fine-tune your heading for maximum destruction and carnage.

2. When bombing from formation, never fly directly behind another bomber unless you are at least one-half mile behind.

3. Bomb the heaviest concentration of enemies first, then move on to thinner clusters.

4. When attacking enemy naval fleets, the Aircraft Carrier can't be successfully reached until it's defensive perimeter of destroyers is thinned down or eliminated

5. If a runway is on the map as a ground object, it is best to hit it length-wise and with a heavy saturation of munitions.

6. NEVER fly level during an attack unless on final for a bomb run. Maneuvering your plane forces your enemy to wait for a clean shot.

7. If being escorted by fighters and you are coming under air attack, open the formation slightly to give room for friendly fighters.

8. Teamspeak is the most powerful weapon you can have. Go Vocal and you shall gain Victory.

9. Rank means nothing in combat. Ability means everything.

10. Do not use in-game chat to inform fellow pilots of anything mission related.

Thanks for the tips, Ace Lord. We don't do a whole lot of strategic style bombing in the 171st, so any recommendations others have would be most welcome.

This is useless when you're using a MiG-25BM armed with 500lb bombs. :lol:
