 Is Aerial Warfare Doomed?
Cities and enemy military positions are to be demolished with bombs and poison gas hurled from the sky, with the odds for victory 100 per cent in favor of the aerial attacking forces.
They close their eyes to the fact that no aerial bombing can be effective unless the aviators can clearly see the target they are trying to hit it is a well-established fact that any bomb-dropping from an altitude of more than about 4000 feet is notoriously inaccurate.
The aerial bomb is dropped at a target and hitting the target is largely a matter of guesswork.

 An Analytical Approach to Assessing the Vulnerability of Bomb Shelters to Aerial Bombing and Artillery Attack - ...
Abstract: This study examines the vulnerability of bomb shelters to aerial bombing and artillery attack, by modelling the bomb dump, i.e., the area within which the bomb shelters are located, as a cellular target.
The stochastic process of hitting the dump with aerial bombs or artillery shells is modelled using suitable probability distributions, depending on the scenarios.
Two measures of effectiveness are used: (1) The expected proportion of damage to the bomb dump by n weapons (bombs or shells) that are directed at the bomb dump, and (2) The probability that the ith shelter will be damaged due to an attack by n weapons that are directed at the bomb dump.

 Remote Piloted Aerial Vehicles : The 'Aerial Target' and 'Aerial Torpedo' in Germany
The German V1 flying bomb, or 'buzz' bomb, known originally as the Fieseler Fi 103, FZG 76, was the first of the Vergeltungswaffen ("weapons of vengeance," named in response to Allied air assaults on Germany during World War II).
Development of reaction-propulsion by the Germans for eventual application to military uses was started soon after WWI to evade the terms of the Treaty of Versailles which forbade Germany to develop certain classes of internal-combustion reciprocating motors.
By 1945, however, the attitude toward using the flying bomb had changed so much that only criminals or pilots who were in a depressed state or were ill would be allowed to fly Reichenbergs.

The earliest versions of this type of bomb were made of glass and filled with a bright dye substance that would spread once the bomb had burst.
These free-fall air navigation bombs were first used in the First World War, and were included in the specialized munitions developed for the Red Air Forces during the 1920s (pp.

The bomb's destructiveness depends on the strength of the ultrawideband source, the altitude at which it is initiated, and its distance from the target [see " E-Bomb Anatomy "].
Narrowband weapons, by contrast, emit at a single frequency or closely clustered frequencies at very high power (from hundreds up to a thousand kilojoules per pulse), and some can be fired hundreds of times a second, making an almost continuous beam.
The presumption was that after the Cold War, nobody would be using nuclear bombs, says the Lexington Institute's Thompson.
