With a heavy load, cannot fly so fast or manoeuvre so quickly as the lightly-laden craft which attack it, and which have no long distance to fly, for they are operating above their own territory. The defensive machine, in fact, which may require only to ascend and patrol in the neighbour- THE WAR BY AIR hood 37 own aerodrome, is at a very considercan be built for speed; it needs only a minimum of fuel; what weight it does carry can be devoted mainly to its offensive of its able advantage. And It heavily-loaded bombdropping craft, while on a long-distance raid over armament.

When it has to difficulty fly with an aeroplane, a long distance by night, to steer an accurate course, and is also to identify the target on which bombs are to be dropped. This may lead to a haphazard and ineffective bombardment, such as has occurred when raiding airships have failed to pick out any definite mark, and have dropped bombs at random.
