  Bomber - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Strategic bombers are primarily designed for long-range strike missions against strategic targets such as supply bases, bridges, factories, and shipyards in order to damage an enemy's war effort.
The development of large strategic bombers stagnated in the later part of the Cold War because of spiraling costs and the advent of the intercontinental ballistic missile, which was felt to have equal deterrent value while being much more difficult to intercept.
Perhaps the one meaningful distinction at present is the question of range: a bomber is generally a long-range aircraft capable of striking targets deep within enemy territory, whereas fighter bombers and attack aircraft are limited to 'theater' missions in and around the immediate area of battlefield combat.

 NOVA | Last Flight of Bomber 31 | TV Program Description | PBS
At the outset, all that was known for certain was that this was Bomber 31, confirmed by the type of aircraft—a U.S. Navy PV-1—and the faded "31" stenciled on the tail.
Battle damage on the engines shows that Bomber 31 was in distress, and an unexploded bomb implies that it had not had time to perform its mission.
Working backward from Bomber 31's assigned target—the Japanese base at Shumshu in the Kuril Islands—Wetterhahn takes NOVA through a likely scenario that brought the plane and crew to a daring landing and a heroic last struggle.
