B52 Nap of Earth... O.o
Err... It's called Stratofortress for a reason - it's up in the stratosphere.

Little bit late but may be useful for anybody new to this thread/looking for an answer.

I created this tutorial on how to get AI aircraft to complete a carpet bombing run, hope it helps:

As the above video link is now down, here's what I found to work for B52 bombing:
- Give the B52 a primary task (i.e. drop down under the country) of Ground Attack
- Set your waypoints for the flight plan to and from the target.
- One of the waypoints on the way to the target seems to need to be at least 10 miles from the target, giving the B52 time to setup it's run and open the bomb bay doors
- Add an Advanced Waypoint action to the waypoint circa 10 miles from the target
- Add a "Perform Task" of "Bombing"
- Set the Weapon to Unguided Bombs
- Set the REL QTY to ALL
- Set the Attack Quantity to 1 (this relates to how many times the bomber will make a bombing run. If you want to laugh, set it to 49 and watch the B52 make 49 passes over the target)

I built a simple test mission with a single B52 and another aircraft that I could jump in and sanity check that it worked. It's worth trying it out.
For myself, the above resulted in the B52 dropping all of both it's internal and external bombs.

You missed the best part!
In VR. spawn on the same runway you just targeted,

Get out of your aircraft, have a seat, and watch the SHOW!


I have died many times this way......



(It helps to have a chair within reach....lol)

I think that was the Dale Brown megafortress version? Did it have rear firing missiles?
