Bombing recticle

186 Buzzlightyear  8.2 years ago

I've thought about this for a while now and i came to the conclusion that it would really be a great idea to have some kind of aiming mechanism for dumb bombs (bombs without any guidance)
Maybe you could get into a bombing view or have some kind of marker where it would probably hit (think about war thunder)

What are your opinions on this?
Should this be included in the next update?

    You guys know there’s a mod called “advanced targeting” that allows you to aim bombs but this conversation is 2.5 years old so I guess you know

    A CCIP reticle gets an upvote from me! I hate using dumb bombs because they don't go well together with my poor aiming skills.

    We've already built smart bombs without mods....

    @Buzzlightyear would work if you have enough altitude

    @KingDeadshot good idea with the weight! Usually bigger planes have more countermeasures (C130-gunship) and fighters have less!
    Armor? There has never really been an armored plane though, not as in the way normal ground vehicles are armored, although armor would be nice for ground vehicles

    Another idea was countermeasures, flares or chaff, the thing is that people would just spam those onto their planes

    @KingDeadshot the thing with bombing recticles is that they were made for dumb bombs, and i agree with your idea for a special recticle and a new "smart bomb" but what if we could choose between a placeable recticle for dumb bombs or one for smart bombs, in this case the smart bombs will have a smaller payload to not make the dumb bombs obsolete
