Stuck in Tutorial
So I'm using the Xbox controller for this, and forgive me if I sound like a complete idiot for this, but I cannot get through the tutorial.

See, there's a section early on where you need to practice dive bombing to continue, So I dive bomb the ship, then I do it again. And again. And again. And I run out of bombs, so I switch to the next payload, and bomb the ship, then I do it again, and again, and again. Then I switch to another plane. Then another. then another. The ship doesn't sink. I'm out of bombs. The tutorial doesn't continue.

And I assumed switching planes sends the previous one away to restock, but apaprently they just disappear. Fly off into the blue never to be seen again. I thought maybe I need to land manually to restock on ammunition, but that just makes my plane explode. The game is really ambiguous about what I need. And I really don't feel comfortable continuing with the campaign if I can't even figure out the tutorial.

You are not alone ... same thing happend to me. Till now I have no idea how to get past this tutorial... Maybe we are just to stupid for the game :D Also there is the mission to do this without changing planes so I don't think we have to restock at all...

i was confused at first too, but you just need to look out, that you don´t waste your bombs. just make it sure that (almost) every bomb hits the ship. you can afford some misses, but not too many. just stay focused and concentrated and you will facepalm yourself after realising that it was so easy... ;-) you have to use at least 3 planes, that should be enough if you don´t miss your target.

btw.: planes do get restocked, but not in the tutorial only later in the game. give it a shot, it´s a good arcade game! :-)

I had no issues with the dive bombing portion; however, I cannot figure out why the torpedo tutorial instantly says "negative on the torpedo (or) lost the torpedo" (or something like that) the moment I drop them. I'm low, slow and level. What is the secret?

I only passed the tutorial by ramming my plane (with torpedo onboard) into the ship. I've avoided using torpedoes in the campaign (select bombs for payload instead) and am doing just fine.

I do wish the tutorial was more "tutoring" as it were.

there is a thread called "Torpedoes - How to use them correctly?" on page 1. i´m sure, this info will help you.
