Google dive bombing in gta online. Watched a yt-video that had some good tricks. So yes you can dive bomb as they did in ww2.
Hmm the UK Google site doesn't return any YouTube video in the top results for bombs with that search string. Anyway, I had watched a video 'Tylarious' had made, but unfortunately it didn't really showcase how they did it in WW2 with much accuracy apart from 'coming from a high altitude in a dive'. In fact the way they did it in WW2 is pretty much impossible in GTA Online because of the angle of release limitation (dive bombers could often fly at and release bombs at 70-90 degrees negative pitch).
You can still be in a 50 degree dive and be able to drop bombs in GTA Online, so it's not really too far off, but "diving down and almost levelling out the plane before releasing the ordnance" is not dive-bombing in that sense, as the bomb is being released at an attitude which has less accuracy. With about 30 minutes practice in the Tula after having watched the US Navy's training video from 1943, I'm able to hit something like a stationary vehicle almost 100% of the time (as long as the situational environment permits that, so I'm not flying into buildings), and that sort of level of accuracy seems to be harder to achieve with normal 'straight and level flight' bombing because of the increase in the range of error.
