Useless facts:
On a Corsair (Vought trademark all rights reserved), select the 1 X 2000 lbs and 2 X 1000 lbs ordnance and do a skip bombing approach. Never fails unless you get shot down first.
It takes two 2000 pounders or three 1600 pounders (for SBD) to sink it by skip bombing.

What do you have to set your delay to in order for them to skip?

You certainly aren't doing this from a carrier.

I set it at 2 seconds.

No, I tried taking off at full flaps and the CV at top speed, no can do.

The 2 2000kg bombs on an He 111 are quite effective as well.

How high do you have to be to skip bomb?

You have to be almost at the water level, release and pull up at the last second.

I thought I'd read before that if you set a delay on your bombs they won't kill ships? I've been trying to skip bomb with the 1x2000, 2x1000 load myself. I have no problems sinking the ship but with delay set to 0 I also have no problems blowing myself up too...
