I wish you hadn't spoiled things in the description, but all the same, five.

Five for bouncy bombs, nothing beats playing cricket with an instrument of death.

I saw this in grade four. Yes, the teacher was a racist, as well as an emotionally disturbed thug. He hated me because I have a German last name. But I'm sure the (several) niggers in my class were totally fine with this scene. He also hated 'Pakis' (this included Indians). I recall one of them pissing in his shoes while he wasn't looking, for what I'm sure he felt were poor reasons. I'm rambling, but the point is fuck that guy.

Only the British could make any word sound proper and distinguished - including 'nigger'.

Ironically, the German codephrase translated roughly to "Let's be nice to the Jews for a change".

The mascot of the 617 Squadron RAF shown here was a black labrador named "Nigger"

A more barbaric time, before armed men whose job was to destroy whatever and whoever they were told began adhering to the practice of polite code naming.

Let's see how those Jerrys like it when we drop a couple of niggars on them, what!

I've been sitting here trying to think of jokes for other operations that would have other slurs as code words but I really honestly can't get past pilots sending "nigger" back to base to signal success
What the fuck, Greatest Generation?

I just read about this bomb skipping technique in Cryptonomicon. Pretty awesome to see it in action. Apparently it was very effective against Japanese naval fleets when conventional bombing proved ineffective.
Those Nips sure got a chink in their armor.
Skip-bombing in the Pacific was done with small conventional bombs. The Barnes Wallis dambuster bombs were huge drums that were spun up to 500 RPM so that after they skipped across the surface of the water (and the anti-torpedo nets) they would "roll" down the front of the dam and explode down at the base of the structure where they would do the most damage.
