Shoot all incoming airplanes and drop bombs on navy ships. In the early days of the Great War, the bomber was a relatively new concept. The pilot would have to load his bombs, fly to his target, and throw them out of the plane, guiding them to their target with equal measures luck and prayer. As one could expect, this form of bombing never made a significant dent in the war machines of the Allies or the Entente. It did provide pilots, however, with valuable lessons on the art of bombing.
