Question about modern bombers (B-1B)

Recommended Posts

I've been using the excellent B-1B pack lately, trying some low-level deep strikes. I added a simple CCIP for the _92 model. My question is, how would a real B-1B sight it's bombs? Is there a designated bombadier who takes control of the plane and uses a sight(but on a screen, not thru a glass I assume) like in a WW2 bomber? Are they even able to do high alttitude bombing with unguided munitions? How does it all work?

The B-1B has a offensive systems operator and a defensive systems operator. The OSO has the Offensive Avionic System which allows him to drop all sorts of guided and unguided bombs very great accuracy. The OAS is tied in to the radar system. So in essense, they radar bomb.

So I guess the added CCIP in conjunction with the red box on normal game targeting settings is a decent approximation of the OAS. It's quite satisfying to sprinkle 12 tons of those parachute Mk82's over an enemy airfield on a high speed bombing run at <500ft.
