If a dive bomber has a default load of two bombs, does that mean the
dive bomber perfoms two separate diving attacks releasing one bomb or it releases two bombs in one diving attack?

Do more bombs translate into more diving attacks?

I would say two shots are taken on one pass.

I seem to remember back in the UV days, code was written to prevent more than one bomb in a group from one plane hitting the target ship.  I believe there were cases of B-17s raking over ships stem to stern.  Don't know if this is still the case.

Well, there is this Soviet Pe-2, which is a dive bomber and has 6 x 100 kg bombs. Other dive bombers only have 1-2 bombs at that's it. I was wondering if she had six times more chances to hit a ship. She would be deadly for small vessels. I just don't know if code for dive bombers is more bombs=more dives=more chances to hit.

I would assume it's 1 attack but get 6 chances for hits in that attack but consider the size of those bombs vs what you see on Dauntless/Helldivers (1 big bomb & 2 smaller) as the effect/penetration of those bombs may only scratch the paint vs any real damage if a hit occurs.

I think Naval Attacks are against ONE ship, but during port attack, I am pretty sure 4Es can hit more ships, that there are planes attacking.
