Question RIO When using the option L or H for Mk-82 ?

"The Mk-81, 82 and 83 have both a L and a H option being for low-drag and high-drag versions respectively."

I always use L (low-drag), I don't udestand when using the option H for the bombs?
Because, when I put the "high-drag" I alway mist the target, the bombs going to far.. ??

Yes, I'd like some guidance on technique for dropping the high-drag bombs as well.

The L option is for normal unretarded bombs, the H option is for snakeeye or ballute high drag bombs. Of these only the Mk-82 has this option in the loadouts in DCS.

I think Satarosa understands what the difference between the bombs is, but (like me) does not know what technique to use with retarded bombs. If you use the TGT/PLT technique with high drag bombs they will land short.

That should not be the case, we have been having problems with the carrier and INS alignments leading to erroneous results in systems relying on it. It should be improved as of latest patch but we'll have a look ofc.

Sidenote: the fuze controls the L/H delivery of the retarded bombs.

Correct, if you set the wheel to high drag delivery and then don't fuze the bombs to actually use the retarded mode they will miss.

In short. Set fuze to 'Nose and Tail' to use the bombs (SE and Y) as retarded.

Yep, and I also usually carry SE only and use them as standard by switching the fuze and the drum. The more flexible, the better!
