There's an obvious joke to use as answer to your question but it's too obvious. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have no idea on how to skip bomb.

Well I guess Moderators are just for 'moderating' then /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Basically it is pretty simple IMHO.

You need to be low, VERY low. I tend to skip bomb from around 50-100M depending on terrain. If we are talking ocean then great - it is flat after all! Get really low.

On approach your biggest risk is from AAA - so on ingress try yawing with rudder as this can throw off a gunners aim. The last stretch is the nasty part... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Line up the ship and just drop the bomb when you are about 100M away (test this - as it might go further!!) and then pull away, real quick. You need to clear the blast area - FAST. Snap roll and pull really hard.

If you blow up, then release it from further away /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You also need to set your bomb delay to 0 secs (IIRC) or it won't work.

IIRC there is a track in the FB folder of a P-40 doing this that might be interesting to watch /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I couldn't find anything on the subject of Bomb Skipping. I agree with other posts stay low!!...0-50 meters altitude and about 100 to 150 meters away.

Be sure to use 0 second delay, unlike in the video.
