I have plenty of un-played content in the form of campaigns and one of those has the P-51 as the main airframe. One of my non-complete items of the P-51 pilot syllabus is bombing, which is needed in the P-51D Operation Charnwood Campaign (Bunyap Campaigns).
|The color palette in the P-51's cockpit has been fixed and gone are now the unnerving bright reds, which gave way to more hushed and lifelike tones.|
|With two bombs under my wings, I start a shallow dive in my P-51D. Watch for the airspeed not to exceed 300 mph.|
|The proper angle of the "dive" is around 30 degrees.|
|Line sight the pipper on the target, a bridge in this case.|
|Then apply some lead by raising the nose.|
|The angle ended up too shallow. In real life, these two beauties may have ricocheted on the ground.|
|But this was good enough, although not exactly precision bombing.|
