Default AI and Bombing - or lack there of?

I've been trying to create missions where there are AI planes that bomb enemy targets to give the players abilities to do escort missions.


However, I've been having no luck trying to get the AI to hit any target or sometimes even drop their bombs!


I've tried Attack Target, Bomb, the WW2 Carpet bombing, various different bombs and types. Probably almost every combination.


75% of the time, they'll actually drop the bomb (if I pick the right combination of target, bomb type, etc) but in the at least 40+ attempts, none of them have actually HIT the target I put the triangle on.


In one specific case, I'm trying to use the B-2 bomber from the Military Aircraft mod and no matter what I do, it won't bomb at all. It just gets to the waypoint and turns around.



How do I make AI bombing more accurate or what are the tricks?

First thing I always try: Move the IP back quite a ways.

Heavy Bombers often need 20-30 (B-1s sometimes need 40nm) miles from IP to TGT. They can’t work with a “tactical” IP like fighters can where it’s sometimes 10-15 miles out.
