Just got the F-84B and tried the Tiny Tims, but am not impressed with damage. I was hoping that you could more accurately deal damage than with bombs, but ... nah.

Is there a secret with using them ??

Using the Valkyrie with added demolition expert helps a bit, but bombs still seem better.

(already had the XF5U that also has the rockets, but stopped using ordnance on the Pancake altogether)

I've never used Tiny Tims on anything other than gun emplacements after learning quickly they don't do well against the special and medium targets in sectors.  However, they are reliable with respect to destroying AA guns.

Same here, with the Pancake at least.

They are great for capturing a sector when almost all of a ground target is destroyed and there are no planes left to shoot.

 

But yeah they are pretty underwhelming!

OK, thanks all.

I'll stick to the 500lb bombs then.

Hi, just get in the US Mary female pilot. Then one Tiny Tim can destroy one medium target - and has advantage compared to bombs that you can fire them from great distance. If Mary is not available, go for bombs.

See first post, I am using the Valkyrie ... but her skill only kicks in at max dive speed in 45% angle. Any way to see if it's active ?

And I'm using demolition expert.

Since the update I have the feeling that the skill indicator is lighting up more often on my XP-72 then it used to. But it is quite unreliable. Most of the time when I go into dive, I try to fullfill the conditions and hope that it's just the indicator not going off.

 

Also bombs are nearly always better for ground targets then rockets from the damage output perspective. I think the only plane on which rockets out-damage bombs is on the Tempest (?). And yeah the Tiny Tim are not so good.
