Is there an instrument i can use to tell me how many degrees i am diving at? because i am trying dive bombing, and i used a site that told me i want to dive about 70-75 degrees. So can someone post an image and gimme instructions on any cockpit instruments

Not really. There are ways in some planes, but look out the window, estimate your angle with the horizon and your wing. Straight down is 90*.

The stuka, has graduated lines on the side of the wind screen. when one of these lines is parallel to the horizon, that's your dive angle.
