I am reading document, about Japanese ASW warfare, and it shows Float Planes, as making glide attacks.
Now, I am pretty sure, in WITP they dive-bombed. But I think they actually make standard attacks in AE. Does anyone know?

Also, standard ASW bombload seems pretty interesting. It seems they were using full, not half of payload. Actually LILY seems to be even better armed, that for ground mission:

Well, I have checked it.

Float Planes neither dive, not glide bomb.
But I am sure, they were diving in WITP. Why they are not doing this in AE?

In AE they do not dive bomb because they are not so defined. YOU can define them that way, if you wish.
Since they did dive bomb, I have both E8 and F1 dive bombing - and sure enough - they show up with the DB symbol
and everything. You then need to define them as float capable.

Ah yes. There is even such Japanese plane in-game.

Change seems simple enough, however in AE there is difference between dive, and glide bombing. TBs tended to glide, but I think it was reversed in beta.

So, do you have any data which Float Planes could made dive/glide attacks? I am guessing not all of them.

Only the rather strong, smaller ones. E8N and F1M for sure - and probably others of similar construction.

Technically, glide bombing is very accurate - and technically many kinds of bombers could do it -
and in the modern age - when iron bombs were used - many "fighter bombers" used it - before the era
of smart weapons made it not matter that much.

How about Allied side? Anything there is qualified to glide-bombing?

I would guess some Russian planes should at least do it.
