From 1000 ft, your dive bombers should not be able to dive bomb.  That should significantly decrease their accuracy.



guess 1000ft would pretty much make dive bombing impossible in real life.

On contrary, you'd be perfectly able to dive bomb from 1000ft...once...

You are talking about the Japanese only then but I though we called them something else

i dont know whether the accuracy drop is balanced out by something else but i just covered the Enterprise, Saratoga and the Yorktown in a s*** load of bombs, and an AI game 20 Val just scored 19 bomb hits on 3 destroyers

The Japanese practiced that at the end of the war.....

As my opponent has trouble getting good results with his bombers:

Do the they make glide bombing attacks?
Do they make low level attacks?
At what altitudes will torpedo bombers use the different ways of bombing?

They won't if carrying torps. If torp arn't available then they behave like LBs.

As we realized so often in our PBEM Chris... Can't wait for the 5th USAAF to equip some of my PBYs with some deadly fish to make (hopefully?) some Sushi out of some big ships! Sink the Yamato and Kaga near the Solomons, hurrah!

Klink, Oberst

everything i launch from land or decks as the IJN/IJA i launch at 1000ft - its carnage! The KB has crippled massed AKs/APs and destroyed CV fleets.

The only problem i have is i set the escorts at 5k to provide cover but most enemy CAPs are set at higher and the Zeroes, not the bombers do get a bit of a mauling

1. Can you provide a screen print of the pilots in one of the sqn that accomplished this feat?

a. What is the average lownav exp of these pilots.
B. What is the NavB of these pilots?
