A bombsight is a device used to accurately drop bombs. There are several available.
|Primitive||15||Allows Bombing Runs|
|Normal||17||+4 BAB for Bombing|
|Advanced||20||+6 BAB for Bombing|
|Smart||22||+8 BAB for Bombing|
|Advanced Smart||25||+10 BAB for Bombing|
|Orbital||28||+10 BAB for Bombing, Orbital|
This device is a downward looking scope, which allows bombs to be dropped much more accurately onto a target. This device allows a ship to conduct a Bombing Run (see Bombing and Bombing Runs).
This device is more accurate than it’s predecessor.
This device is the most accurate Bombsight without the use of “smart” technology. Smartsights are treated as this type of sight if used with a non-smart bomb.
This device allows the bombardier to actually guide the bomb on its way down, if the bomb is also equipped with smart technology. Otherwise, this device functions as a Bombsight, Advanced.
Bombsight, Smart Advanced
This is just like a Smartsight, only more accurate. This device functions as a Bombsight, Advanced if the bombs used with it do not have smart attachments.
This device, when used with smart bombs, allows a ship to conduct bombing runs from orbit (the only way bombs can be dropped by anything other than atmospheric craft), allowing huge capital ships to conduct bombing raids, rather than relying on smaller, more vulnerable atmospheric bombers. If the bombs do not also have smart attachments, this device functions as a Bombsight, Advanced, and will thus not allow a ship to drop bombs from atmosphere.
