The generic term bomber can be applied to any aircraft that has as its primary role the delivery of bombs against an enemy target. As military aircraft have evolved, attempts have been made periodically to classify bombers more precisely by adding a variety of adjectives like “night,” “day,” “light,” “medium,” “heavy,” “dive,” “tactical,” “strategic,” “conventional,” or “nuclear.”

Time and circumstance have often proved such categories temporary or artificial, and the lines of distinction have become blurred, with “night” bombers being used in daylight, or “strategic” bombers attacking “tactical” targets. With the technological advances of the late twentieth century, it has become possible to make aircraft that are capable of performing well in several different combat roles and the need for specialized bomber aircraft has diminished. Even so, there are still aircraft in which the delivery of bombs or air‐to‐ground missiles is clearly the primary role. The U.S. Ron Dick. Midwest Vintage.
