Looks like your attack was every bit as successful as any other ship would get while hiding behind an island at the back of the map.  I see no problem.

How do you aim with DBs to hit anything since the sight disappears to the rear?

I have only 1 DB hit and that was just luck. I couldn't see the sight at all just pressed the button just before the timer ran out.

You have to change the angle of your view.

On the OP, that was RNG but you can twist that RNG a bit in your favor as the bombs tend to fall to the sides make your drops off centered.

The DB's with AP bombs and AP shells in general could use a small buff giving standard/33% damage for that bomb when it causes an incapacitation.

I have a bigger issue with dive bomber survivability or the lack thereof.

Unless they're British, or Graf Zeppelin's, they just hover in the point blank range AA aura and get shredded, despite taking reduced damage while they're making their attack.  GZ's don't have the hitpoints to survive getting to start the bombing run, and are largely useless even if they do citadel, the British bombers wouldn't be half bad if they carried bombs that were worth dropping.

1) Saipan is likely the worst dive bomber at her tier.

2) RNG can be a b**ch. Although note ... I cannot see the drop ellipse on the screen, but if it's not fully focused before dropping, bombs will tend to drop on the outer edges.

Start looking down when you begin the attack run.

The dive bombers often seem questionable. The ship can be bigger than the reticle, and you can see your bombs on a contact trajectory but then they just kind of teleport to the sides and splash. I generally don't use dbs too much because of this. Even seen this with both bombs having the same visual trajectory yet somehow land on opposite points

1. How do you uploaded that clip?

2. I thought it was a thread about how quickly the planes died

3. WG nerfed the precision of the usn dive bombers, a buff is impossible because they can destroy a DD in one pass and everyone knows the DD are the fragile babies of the game

4. You did good, that pesky rng screwed your shot, literally, bad luck
