    hello people, i got bored with my life and decided to play il-2 again

    anyway, these cluster bombs are supposed to be... cluster bombs, but whenever i drop one of them i feel like i'm dropping nothing but a little ball of iron... arent these things supposed to have large areas of effect?

    i tried cramming a bunch of trucks and dropping the biggest bomb i found, all i really blew up was one truck, which directly got hit by the bomb

    um, btw when i bomb, i approach at really low level, like say <50m... am i doing anything wrong

    i use 4.08m

    Try bombing from higher altitude.. like +500m it should do it. It works perfect for me and my loved stuka :D

    You are way too low, the bomb doesn't fragment until its about 75m from the aircraft. then it still needs altitude to spread out, otherwise its not much more use than a iron bomb
