I am having trouble with Stukas.
I have them about a mile away from a town I want them to bomb, I put a destroy target objective and I put some factory buildings in the area so it looks like they are bombing civilians.
They wont go down and bomb it at all they will fly around and after 3 minutes they will suicide into it. Help?

After the Gattack waypoint you need to put another waypoint to fly to, else they will fly into the ground as they have no where else to go (at least your civilians will get it big time Shocked )

They won't bomb just buildings, they bomb airplanes, vehicles, tanks etc

As for the target, use Destroy Ground, but that needs to be added before you add the bombers, then you can change the size of the area to be destroyed

Hope this helps, good luck with it

a nice trick that usualy solves that problem is to place a "ligid military"target,
say a gun or a truck inside the target you want them to bomb and set it as
the intended target.
that way it will look as if they are bombing the building....try it out.

Yep, and if the building is large enough, hide a load of fuel trucks inside Wink

Of course!
And the explosion of the fuel tank will cause a nice burning there, and also the destruction of other units that are in the immediate vicinity ...

Yup, that's exactly what I would do.
