Under the Chapter- Types of Military Airplanes and Their Uses:

Bomb Dropping.--- This maneuver requires squad flights to be of great value. The fundamental characteristic of a bombing airplane is its ability to carry great weight. Such machines are of comparatively large size and not particularly fast. Weight carrying is of course incompatible with speed and climbing ability and therefore the bombing machine must be a compromise if it is to have any reasonable speed. It may be said that airplanes compare very unfavorably with dirigible balloons for bomb raids because the latter are able to carry several tons of bombs as against the airplane's quarter of a ton.

Wander what the author would have said could he see a B1 Bomber of today? Big Grin
