Hi @tourvillejeff47 - since your issues seems to be in IL-2: 1946, I've moved both of your posts together within the DCG section.

It's been a while since I've flown 1946, but I can try to help.  Maybe someone who is more knowledgeable can join in.

Firstly, there should be four separate controls for four types of weapons: guns, cannons, rockets, and bombs.  I would check your control mappings and make sure that they're set correctly.  Bombs are Fire 4 (bombs) - Alt Space.

Additionally, many aircraft are designed to drop wing ordinance first.  And when the wing ordinance drops, they'll usually go in pairs.  This is to prevent over-Ging damage to the aircraft, as well as flight imbalance.  After you drop the wing bombs, you should be able to drop the central bomb with another pull of the release button.  I don't remember if there is a way to drop all simultaneously.

Also, if there are bomb bay doors (obviously not on a fighter-bomber, but just in case), the bomb bay doors must be open first before releasing the bombs, or they won't go.

Bombs often have a fuse.  This is mostly to prevent you from blowing off your own wing.  In the Difficulty Settings, make sure to check what your current settings are.  If there is a delay, you'll need to be high enough to allow the bomb to start the arming process.

also i dk why there isnt any rockets for ground attack on german planes

On late war aircraft, look for the R4HL (air-to-ground) or the R4M (air-to-air).

Hopefully this helps.

im using unlimited ammo too i dk maybe thats the glitch i can jettison the bombs but i like to do unlimited ammo... im not always tryna do realism...

Yeah, that might definitely have something to do with it.  If the wing bombs never go, the center never has the chance to.

The center bombs will never release when using the unlimited ammo option. Only the wing bombs will drop and those wing bombs will regenerate before the center bomb can be dropped. As you have already found out you can jettison all the bombs though. The jettison bomb feature was added with the v4.11m patch to somewhat address the problem of never being able to drop all the bombs.
