Bombing GV's from 30k
« on: May 25, 2024, 05:32:23 PM »
A quick one from DHBG Squad Night this week, a couple of Guys had a few spare bombs on the way home, so they salvo'd them on A37 town and VH.

Poor rolleasy spawned in a whirble as the bombs fell, and got taken out by the splash :)

Enjoy

"According to data from training and practice bombing, a heavy bomber at 20,000 feet had a 1.2 percent probability of hitting a 100-foot-square target."

Not only is it done well,... but funny in my book. I could never do that.

Just to be clear, Twinn wasn't aiming for the GV, it hadn't even spawned when he dropped, it was just a happy accident :)

Biggamer was not happy.
