Chuck are you flying with Squadron members in your formation on multiplayer or are you flying cingle player with AI?
If the latter, your problem is that they are flying in fingrtip formation rather than V of V's as was actually flown for tight bombing patterns.
If in multiplayer with human squadmates , V of V's can be described as follows...
12 ship formation with positions numvbered from 1 to twelve......
#1, leader,#2 deputy leader on 1's right wing w /#3 on 1's left wing.(1st element)
2nd Element is a V with #4-leader... positioned to right of #2 , witth #5 & #6 in a v on his wings .
3rd element is V of #s 7,8&9 with 7 the element leader positioned on # 3's left wing. and 8 and 9 on his wings
4th element is tail end charlie element with #10 leading it , positioned at the bottom of the "Diamond" , in line with #1 but trailing aft of #, 8 &9.. #11
on his wings.
They are stackled aeway from the sun . That is, if the sun is to the right of the formation, then the second element is lower than the lead element ; the third element is higher than the lead and tail end charlie is level but out of propwash ( for if he was lower he could run into hung bombs and if he is higher he can't see the leadeer or the low elemenrt.
If the sun is on the left, element 3 is the low element.
That is a squadron formation , Group formations were similar but the Squadron formations were stacked in a v of v's on the lead squadron..
B29's went in as separate squadron formations, often on different axes of attack, rather than a bomber stream if all were going for the same target area.; They were separated by an interval of time to avoid a chinese fire drill over the target.
A word of warning: choose your waypoints and I.P. so that you don't have to make a huge formation turn to line up for the next leg or for the target ... else you will have a very loose formation when you level out on the new heading ... so loose that you may get lonely.
The above is for a daylight raid from high altitude.
Night , Low level firebombing raids done by B29's were single ship bomber stream with each plane departing at a briefed time separated by a one minute interval from the planes before and after it.
Hope this helps.,
To Scott: recommend you make this available to your programmers to get rid of that finger tip formation for bombers.in single player.
