AP bombers VS DDs?

Hi, I've always wondered if there is a way to effectively bomb DDs using AP bomber planes. They always overpen IF I manage to hit them with AP bombs. I've tried dropping very low but that doesn't seem to make a difference. Is there an ideal height I should be dropping them at? Or should I just stay away from DDs when flying AP bombers

The arming threshold on AP bombs is usually 20 or 30mm, making it unlikely to ever arm an AP bomb on a DD and with the arming delay it would be unlikely to ever produce a full penetration even if it did arm, and ontop of that there is no possibility of a citadel. AP bombs and the german AP rockets are all poor armaments to attack DDs with.

HE-Bombs are always better against DDs.

But if you have a DD spottet with your AP-Bombers and just spotting and droping Fighters over him is not enough.

You can attack him with your AP-Bombers. You only do Overpen-Damage but every Damage Counts
