-Approach: ​ Approach from wave height 90 degrees to a ship, arm your bombs and open bomb bay doors. ​ Aim more for the stern of the ship to keep clear of rigging and drop bombs when see the line-up in the pic below, pull up and go right over the ship.  Note:  after each 50 kg drop, press and hold your open bomb bay doors as the doors will close on their own.+Approach: ​ Approach from wave height 90 degrees to a ship, arm your bombs and open bomb bay doors. ​ Aim more for the stern of the ship to keep clear of rigging and drop bombs when see the line-up in the pic below, pull up and go right over the ship.  Note:  after each 50 kg drop, press your open bomb bay doors key as the doors will close on their own.

-As you close on the target maintain the angle and speed. ​ If you are consistent with speed and angle, your bombs will drop the same every time.  This next pic shows the moment when the bombs are dropped. ​ Maintain this angle for a second after you drop so you don’t sling shot some of your bombs past the target.+As you close on the targetmaintain the angle and speed. ​ If you are consistent with speed and angle, your bombs will drop the same every time.  This next pic shows the moment when the bombs are dropped. ​ Maintain this angle for a second after you drop so you don’t sling shot some of your bombs past the target.

-Bombing from a low angle: ​ In this example, we’ll bomb from about 1000 m, were slower so we need to add a delay to spread out our bombs to cover the target. ​ It is also a soft target, so the bombs being spread out will still do the job.  Again 14-50 kg were dropped, bomb bay doors open, bombs armed, all, series, 14, with a 4.5 m delay.+Bombing from a low angle: ​ In this example, we’ll ​start the bomb run from about 1000 m, were slower so we need to add a delay to spread out our bombs to cover the target. ​ It is also a soft target, so the bombs being spread out will still do the job.  Again 14-50 kg were dropped, bomb bay doors open, bombs armed, all, series, 14, with a 4.5 m delay.

-Dive bombing is bombing using the dive brakes at very steep angles. ​ Dive bombing can give you very accurate bomb runs and used with salvo you can put 32 bombs into a very small area (almost one crater) ​ Used with series and 0m spread with give you a little more coverage due to the bombs dropping by bomb bay order. ​ If you add a small spread (4.5) you can start slinging your bombs past the target due to the pull-out.+Dive bombing is bombing using the dive brakes at very steep angles. ​ Dive bombing can give you very accurate bomb runs and used with salvo you can put 32 bombs into a very small area (almost one crater) ​ Used with series and 0 m spread with give you a little more coverage due to the bombs dropping by bomb bay order. ​ If you add a small spread (4.5) you can start slinging your bombs past the target due to the pull-out.
  
 This accuracy comes at a price. ​ The lower speed dive and being low and slow after the dive can leave you an easy target for fighters and AAA.  This accuracy comes at a price. ​ The lower speed dive and being low and slow after the dive can leave you an easy target for fighters and AAA.

 The approach: ​ In this example we’ll approach our target from 4200 m using the bombsight to line-up our target. ​ Jump to the bombardier position and hit lean to gun-sight to bring up the bomb site.  Line up the target so it is just to one side of the vertical line, and as you get closer just keep hitting decrease bombsight distance until you get to about 60 deg. The approach: ​ In this example we’ll approach our target from 4200 m using the bombsight to line-up our target. ​ Jump to the bombardier position and hit lean to gun-sight to bring up the bomb site.  Line up the target so it is just to one side of the vertical line, and as you get closer just keep hitting decrease bombsight distance until you get to about 60 deg.
