The Handbook of aircraft of WWII includes all the aircraft used by those countries which were at war during WWII from the period between their joining the conflict and the conflict ending for them.
A bomber is a military aircraft designed to attack ground and sea targets, by dropping bombs on them, firing torpedoes at them, or – in recent years – by launching cruise missiles at them.
With engine power as a major limitation, combined with the desire for accuracy and other operational factors, bomber designs tended to be tailored to specific roles. By the start of the war this included:
dive - specially strengthened for vertical diving attacks for greater accuracy.
light, medium and heavy - subjective definitions based on size.
torpedo - specialized aircraft armed with torpedoes.
ground attack aircraft - used against targets on a battlefield such as troop or tank concentrations. A further specialized form was the anti-tank aircraft.
night - specially equipped to operate at night when opposing defences are limited.
maritime patrol - long range bombers that were used against enemy shipping, particularly submarines.
Bombers are not intended to attack other aircraft although most were fitted with defensive weapons. WWII saw the beginning of the widespread use of high speed bombers which dispensed with defensive weapons to be able to attain higher speed, such as with the de Havilland Mosquito..
Some smaller designs have been used as the basis for night fighters, and a number of fighters, such as the Hawker Hurricane were used as ground attack aircraft, replacing earlier conventional light bombers that proved unable to defend themselves while carrying a useful bombload.

The Bomb Sight app allows you to explore where the bombs fell as you walk around the streets of London. If you are in London you can use your GPS to find your location and discover where the bombs fell using Augmented Reality. Simply hold up your phone and use your camera and GPS location to see their locations.
Previously available only by viewing in the Reading Room at The National Archives, Bomb Sight is making the historical maps and newly created data available to citizen researchers, academics and students.
The project has scanned original 1940s bomb census maps that record the location of bombs that were dropped by the Luftwaffe during WW2. The historical maps have been scanned and matched to a present day location which allowed us to the capture the geographical locations of all the falling bombs recorded on the original map.
Bomb Sight has been created by a collaboration between Dr Catherine Jones, Department of Geography, University of Portsmouth and The National Archives, England, UK with development of the mobile app by Dan Karran of Geobits Ltd, the responsive web application by Dr Patrick Weber of Location Insights and Jasia Warren created the design of both tools.
The development of the app was funded by JISC - Joint Information Service Committee under Strand C: Clustering Digital Content of their Content Programme 2011-13. The project funding ran from Jan 2012 to Jan 2013.
Bomb Sight is a not-for-profit project with the objective to facilitate presentation and increase accessibility of different historical data sources relating to WW2. Access to the website and the app is publicly available and free to all users.
The Bomb Sight Project gives no warranty to the accuracy, completeness or fitness for purpose of the information provided.
