Can someone teach me how? I'd love to do it and learn how, can the planes we have now do this? I'm already good with torpedo bombing and torpedoing ships, but I've never understood how to skip bomb.

start off with reasonable height,dive aiming 500metres or so in front of ship, level out very low, drop bombs at 100m or so, depends on bomb/velocity
might need 0 timer on bomb
cant really do it with tb3 either :\
too slow

That or just get really low like "Oh I can see my shadown low" and above 350 on the speed. Release, and pull out the bomb should skip into the target.

There should be a skip bombing tutorial in your FB already. Just go to play Tracks, and look in there.

I and 2 of my squad mates have a trainning coop for that w/ MOVING ships.

I take a 1000lb bomb on a 47 and get up a head of speed.
Then head for the deck. The faster you can go the farther away from the ship (and AAA) you can release. I aim for at least 490 KPH. about when the ship fits in the gunsught (at medium size) you should have been level For several seconds at 50m. Release and CLIMB at the same time. I get about 4-5 skips and yes zero seconds on the fuze.

If you want bosher i have a trk file of me doing a skip bomb run on a ship if you want it. Also you have to set bomb delay to 0 for it to work correctly. So if ya want the track just P.M. me you email addy and ill get it out to you

Pilots in my unit who lost wingmen on this basis were prohibited from leading a [section]. They were made to fly as wingman, instead."
