Please sign up if you would like to attend. This training is for all FiF pilots interested, Entente and CP.

View through the bombay from Entente and German bombsites. Some liberties taken here, there are other bombsites, but for basic training purposes, I'm limiting to aircraft with these sites:

Entente:

Level Bomber School

A Step-by-Step Guide for effectively delivering bombs on target.
Developed and Delivered by No.42_Ring



The Setup:

1.) Choose your Target/s.

2.) Define an attack altitude.
a. 5 - 6000 ft - alone
b. 4000 ft - artey (aa) dead and with scouts or attack-fighters

3.) Wind Direction.
a. You must fly into or with the wind for best results. Your choice.
b. Wind affects EVERYTHING you drop.

4.) Bombs may be dropped in Single, Pairs, or Salvo
a. Assign keys i.e. Salvo = LCtrl+B
b. Bomb Sights have 3 bomb toggle levers, from left to right = Single, Pair, & Salvo

In the Bomb Sight:

1.) Adjust your Speed
a. miles per hour x 1.609 = kilometers per hour

2.) Click on the 'Wind' icon or on the '180' to switch with or into the Wind.
a. Wind Icon is 'with the wind' 180 is 'into the wind'.
b. Wind speed is in meters/second, m/sec or m/s.
c. Fly into or with the wind to target.
i.) Tip: move wind speed to 20 for maximum forward view.
ii.) Adjusting altitude or plane speed up further increases forward view.

3.) Fly the Plane - Bottom Middle, a 3 position lever (middle, left and right) for 'Macro' corrections.
a. Use your mouse to move the lever Left and Right as required.
b. Smaller 'Micro' corrections can be made using keys Shift+Z for Left & Shift+X for Right
i.) Hold keys down for bigger corrections.

4.) Set Altitude
a. Use both altitude levers to set altitude.
i.) First lever is for kilometers. (1000's of meters)
ii.) Second lever is for 100's of meters.
b. Converting from feet to meters, hold your cursor over the altitude lever and use the popup.
i.) Conversion = feet / .3048 = meters; meters x .3048 = feet (Quick & Dirty - Divide or Multiply by 3)

5.) Drop when 'cross-hair' is centered on target
a. Use Bomb Toggle Levers on right side or Keyboard keys to toggle bombs.

6.) Consider using the Left & Right Correction levers to turn 180 degrees and head for home!



Thanks to No.42_Ring

Perfect! Then we can run two targets if we need to. I'd like all students in 2-seaters at 2000m and Myself and now NJ can overfly at 3000m or so for BDA.

S!

Kept loosing connection to the server last night, so left in frustration early! I'll have to check into this problem. Hopefully it's temporary.

Yeah, sorry about that Geezer!

You have the instructions from the last class that No.42_Ring taught, correct?

I'll bet if you practice with those you'll be good-to-go.

I will edit the current notes as required, post them in our forum and send them along.

Salute
