Pop to dive bombing achieves two primary aims; first it provides a stable, predictable launch platform for the weapon with ideal parameters. Second, it makes the striker a dynamic target for air defences. Pop attacks are suitable for moderately defended areas (light AAA and MANAD threat). In more extreme threat environments, consider using toss attacks or stand-off weapons.
The toss bomb delivery is initially complex to achieve due to high pilot workload, but it is worth practicing to proficiency as it has many advantages. The main advantage of the toss bomb is that it minimises exposure of the striker to enemy air defences by ensuring some stand-off from the target area. Planned appropriately, it is also possible for the striker to remain hidden at low level on the run in, until the pull-up for weapon launch. Combining a well-planned guided weapon toss attack with jammer use, countermeasures and SEAD, allows for a relatively high probability of kill.
