Light bomber

A light bomber is a bomber aircraft built to be small and fast, carrying a light bombload, typically about 2,000lbs. Prior to WWII engine power was so scarce that there were several types of bombers, light medium and heavy, all tuned to a particular performance niche. As fighters grew to be able to carry the same sorts of loads at even greater speeds, light bombers were replaced and the term fell from use.
