  • Ground attack - also known as attack bombers, shturmovik and schlachtflugzeug - light and medium bombers used in a tactical role. Often armoured against ground fire.
  • Heavy bomber - subjective description of size compared to contemporary types - definition varies by country and era, and reclassification as larger aircraft enter service is common.

  • Maritime reconnaissance/Maritime patrol/Patrol bomber - used to control sealanes - can usually attack ships and in later examples, submarines. Most modern examples are converted transports.
  • Schnellbomber - high speed bomber, used speed to avoid interception, however increases in speed of intercepting fighter usually makes these obsolete quickly.
  • Stealth bomber - bomber designed and equipped to make detection by radar and infra-red devices difficult.

  • Tactical bomber - bomber used to destroy targets in direct support of ground operations.
  • Torpedo bomber - bomber whose primary weapon is a torpedo. First examples appeared during World War I, term rare since 1960s when other weapons became available. Related types include torpedo-fighter (similar to fighter bomber) and torpedo-dive bomber.
