Now thats something I would like to see also, Must have the sound.

Good request, but when posting could you try and make the title of the thread a bit more descriptive?

In this case "AI stuka dive bombing script request" would have been better, I'll change it

This would be cool, I like the idea, someone must have an idea on how to do it.

Probably possible, but as for me - looks tricky, especially, that I never had any pilot inclinations. As SQF provides only limited degree of control over AI behavior, probably it is needed turning off default combat AI (so AI will not attack by itself, but not guaranteed, if this is 100% possible in this case, some very basic AI behaviors are practically untouchable from script level, however, if we are lucky, this will need only set "Blue" combat mode). When/if we turn off default AI attack, we need to lead AI "by the hand" to achieve desired way of attack. Most probably for airplanes this means real time juggling with 3D vectors, velocities, pitch, bank and such. Personally I never grasp this geo-math stuff good enough. All the time, so this will be rather heavy for scheduler. Basically this is about scripted fly modelling during attack routine. Firstly Stuka must climb high enough to gain room for diving, then fly over the target, then dive part - setting approach angle, velocity control, (or simplier, if possible, to convince AI so will fly straight towards target, but not so easy - these machines was not diving plain, frontally, but "through the wing", or whatever this should be named in English). In chosen moment releasing a bomb(s), that will keep trajectory affected by gravity (do not know where, but somewhere are these stupid "homing bomb" scripts, that must be disabled/ommited somehow), and get out the plane of the dive, best before whack the ground , and back to de high altitude & fly away or repeat.

Do not know any other script way...
