So I was playing around with a two-seater campaign and the nifty bombsight mod; how do I make it so that the aircraft in my formation drop their bombs together with me? As it is now, they don't do anything when I release.

AFAIK you must select a target, and then give the order to attack, but it's not like WWII bombers formations, they'll not drop their bombs at the same moment as you. They'll change their course to attack the target you've choosen.

When you arrive at the target waypoint,they select their own target and attack it. Propably only works if you don't miss a Waypoint on the way to the target area. Atleast that's how it works for me most of the time. Otherwise I assign a Target for them.
