B-25 Mitchell - Bomb them, shoot them, cannon them - kill them all!

248k SpiritusRaptor  1.2 years ago

Eleven 50 caliber machine guns, 30 bombs and a 75mm cannon!

Lower part count version:

Even lower part count version - 799 parts

Note this bomber uses manual propeller pitch (no overspeed).

  • AG1 to start engines.
  • Throttle for propeller pitch - best set to full/100%.
  • VTOL down for flaps.
  • AG8 to deactivate flaps (needed).
  • Use VTOL and Trim for turret (camera 2), rear gun (camera 3) and side guns (camera 5 - you need to manually swing around for the other side).
  • AG2 to open bomb bay - use in game air to ground weapon system. Bombs firing delay set for carpet bombing (30 bombs).
  • Bomb sights (camera 4). Bombing:

1,000ft, line up target, start dropping bombs (hold firing button down) from first indicator to the second as you fly over the target.

2,000ft, between second and third indicator. Etc.

  • AG3 to activate cannon - also use in game weapon system. Use gun sights from pilots view and tracers to aim, then fire! (This uses Boom50s which devastates all targets).
  • AG4 to activate side guns.
  • If TRIM is needed then use flaps, AG8 and VTOL +/-.

Notes:
- She can take off from a carrier. Turn engines on, wait for them to reach maximum speed, then quickly throttle up (prop pitch).
- If you only release half the bombs you may get a slight auto-roll.
- Set up a dogfight with a WWII fighter and the try and take them out with the guns!
- With a frontal assault using all 7 forward facing 50 cals,, you can sink US Tiny in one sustained strafe (it needs to be quite a long duration).

Enjoy

    Very nice and realistic! I’ve been in one at an air museum and I will say the interior is incredibly accurate! Good job!

    If this is a B-25J-1, with one fixed .50 in a glass nose, why did you put a B-25H's 75mm cannon, which is installed with 4x .50s in a solid nose ?

    I like B-25s. But in real life. The navy variant, the PBJ-1H is actually the B-25 model which has an 75mm T13 Cannon

    @Razor1790 The missiles need to be attached by a pylon. Also you have set the missile lock for the intercepters to maximum radius so there is no sight, but as soon as an aircraft is in range it will lock.
