Default B-17 Bombs

I have asked this question in another thread and have received no useful answers.
All I want to do is load bombs on the B-17. One person suggested that I click on the "new" button which I have to no avail. What do I do after clicking "new?" I tried entering a payload name as: M65A1*6 which is the 1000 lb bombs carried by this plane.
Is there something else? Do I need to write some code? Do I have to download something?
With any other plane or helo I can load the appropriate payload for whichever task I assign.
With the B-17 it is always blank regardless of the task I have assigned.

Please help!!

Right clicking does nothing.
The empty field is still empty.

Okay, step by step:

Press on the bottom left "new". Now you should have 3 lines/loadouts.

Then right mouse click in the field in the middle below the "1" in the just created loadout.

Something should come up. Navigate your mouse to "bombs" and select the bombs.

Are M65s (1000lbers) a stock load out for the ED B17? I thought only the M64 500 lb bomb was available?

It's the only load out available in DCS

IRL you had a choice of: M64 (500 lb) X 12 or M65 (1000 lb) X 8, or M66 (2000 lb) X 4
War Thunder has all options available for the E, E/Late and G variants.

Yeah that is what I meant......looked like you expected M65s to be available going by your first post when you can only get M64x12.
