Default About CCIP bombing in AUTO mode (patchnotes)

So: "CCIP bombing in AUTO mode always using high-drag configuration is fixed"

I may be a bit slow today, but can someone clarify that for me? I am kinda sure I either CCIP or Auto drop dem bombs... what's that about exactly?

Probably has to do with dumb bombs not hitting right in some circumstances. I.e. bombing comp thinks LD bombs are HD bombs at a guess (I haven't used dumb bombs in like 6 months).

I don't know either - my dumb bombs pretty much always hit, in both LD and HD.. and what should CCIP bombing in Auto mode even mean?

Do Mk-82s actually hit when CCRP'd now?

Not sure about 'CCIP in AUTO', but the plane treated high drag bomb as high drag bombs all the time, even if you chose not to deploy the high drag mechanism. That eventually gave you a false impact point. Today they changed it

Maybe this is a reference to visual "ball and chain" auto bombing?

I've always had shit luck hitting anything in that mode, it'd be nice to know it's not just me.

I've always been hitting perfectly well in Auto, though I never tried to drop HD bombs in LD mode, so that might be it.

But the phrase "CCIP bombing in auto mode" still makes little sense to me.

I too am very confused by the phrase "CCIP bombing in auto mode" as i am under the same impression, either CCIP or auto (which is the defacto CCRP version of the Hornet), not both at the same time.
Maybe they're referring to "Auto to CCIP" bombing?
But that doesn't make much sense neither in regards to the bug (high drag ammo always treated high drag regardless of drag on/off?), to just fix it in 1 state / situation rather than the ammo itself?

Hope somebody can clarify..

Yeah, well, that is exactly what I am wondering about, too

Not in patch notes, but they also fixed the CCIP crosshair not showing right on retarded bombs.
