B17s Will Not Drop Bombs
 
3 different groups of 4, B17G aircraft, will not bomb they're target. Have tried most of the options for attack. Bomb map object....Carpet bomb....formation carpet bomb.....bomb group.....bomb unit. Nothing works. I did manage to get one bomber to drop 2 bombs as gamemaster and targeting via the map.

Try making sure they fly on a 10km (minimum) straight run into target and continue it for 10km in the same straight line after bomb drop, before they turn.

Are they late activated? Late activated units forget their tasks completely due to a bug.

Negative not late. one objective. I will test your suggestion, 10k ingress and 10k going away. Thanks

don't forget to actually load the bombs on the aircraft. This gets me every time.


you also have to set the weapon type to manual iron bombs, and set to release ALL ordnance at once.

What is distance between drop point and target? Not home to check one but at least 1 5 or 2 miles works I think.

I just tested it. It works. You must add a bombing waypoint, and in its advanced actions, set task WW2 carpet bombing, specify stick length in feet and uncheck altitude above box. Set weapons to - Bomb and quantity to full. The blue triangle of this task should be below to its waypoint.
