It's quite simple really. Position yourself above your target. Throttle 0, start diving, dive brakes ON, aim at your target **(where you'll have to aim depends on your angle relative to the ground, practice and you'll get the right feel for it) and wait for the automatic bomb release, then retract the dive brake and throttle up.

**The lines is marked with degrees so that you can match them aginst the horizon and see in what angle you are relative to the ground.

did you check the training tracks? I think there is a pretty good one in there, but it doesn't explain what the lines on the side of the window are for (or how to use them). I'd like to know myself.

The lines are a quite funny sort of low tech dive angle indicator. Look at the line parallel to the horizon - that's your dive angle.
