DB - Dive Bombing; this is a weapons delivery profile used to attack surface targets. It use reached its height during WWII and perhaps the most famous use of dive bombers was the attack on the Japanese aircraft carrier fleet during the battle of Midway, in 1942. A dive bomb is performed when the attacking aircraft, instead of dropping its ordnance in a level flight, does so in a dive of 20 or more degrees down. It can be a very precise method of bombing but significantly exposes the aircraft and crew to AAA.
