Thanks. I know that the group lead being central anchor. That is how I fly my formations and how I set up the one in DCS.

I was wondering about how you set individual small groups of 3 planes, the other 2 planes not being lead also known as wing positions. I couldn't get them to fly level with the 3 plane group lead.

As said earlier, I've only had an hour or so to mess about with this, and all of it was adjusting Nirvi's original formation setup.

Once I find the time to build one myself from scratch I will know more. Thanks for the tips and the mission. Downloading now.

EDIT: 2 seconds later... I found the culprit / what I was looking for:

Being a complete idiot with the ME I ask... is it possible to create a template of a large bomber formation for us dolts to plug into missions? Is this even possible?

You're welcome! Thought I've only just begun. When work load eases in the upcoming days, I hope to make a video tutorial on how to build proper WWII formations.

In the mean time, here are two basic 3x3 plane formations to get you started. Captain Orso's mission was of great help. My first attempts look amateurish in comparison.

Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I have a question. I'm comfortable with setting up 36 plane raids. Has anyone tried to add another wing, though? That is, 72 planes. Would that be too much of a performance hit?

Meh, it is a blow to performance. Not when they're just flying around, but as soon as there is flak and fighters, not to mention when they drop bombs. I get 1 fps...

Interesting. I used the stress test mission linked above when all the bombs drop on the airfield I am down to single digit fps too. Once the explosions stop its back to playable again
