By Popular Demand

Since it appears that people actually want to read my thoughts on the dive bomber as a weapons platform, I'll rewrite it on Sunday with an aim of getting it posted that night. (UPDATE: No, it'll be on Monday... I think.)

 And for once, it won't be limited to the Pacific theatre, either... though that's where the majority of the dive bombing action took place.

In fact, it's rather surprising how little dive bombing was used in Europe (other than by Germany and to a lesser extent, Italy), but we'll cover that in the post.

While you're waiting, also by demand, here's another cute girl.

1 Though I'm no specialist on the subject, the P38 (especially the later models like the "L" equipped with Air Brakes) was utilized to a great extent as dive bombers. Seeing that is could haul almost as much weight in bombs as a B-24, the "Forked-Tail Devil" earned a pretty good record in the Pacific.

2 I have nothing to say on dive bombers, but I'm going to have to do some research on Hatsukoi Limited!
