    Agreed. Low level bombing shouldn’t pull your plane down.

    What about when the explosion is above you? Or hits mostly on the top surface of the plane? What do your basic physics tell you then?

    Two of many very basic examples of why your logic is no bueno.

    Is it a bug or does this suppose to happen?

    There is no way a plane can survive direct hit from bombs

    The OP obviously means when you're low-level bombing.  It happens in BF1, too, and is either a bug or a stupid design decision.

    When you are near the ground and release bombs, you are quite often sucked into the ground.

    Sure, do some damage or blow you *away* from the explosion, but suck you toward it?  Huh?

    Maybe the explosions consume all the oxygen creating lower air pressure which causes the plane to drop.

    I was about to say this happened all the time with the attack plane in BF1. You would have thought they would have gotten rid of the bug by now, but evidently not.

    I think you're better off just accepting the fact that the mechanics are ****** and try your best to avoid low-level bombing

    It can be annoying when you go low and bomb the enemy, resulting in your plane nose-diving into the ground. This has stopped my from attacking like this, unless I have the opportunity to kill a group of enemies, then I'll risk it.

    I don't have any hopes that EA will fix this bug.

    Op didn't get the memo yet this game has no basic physics for planes

    You are failing to account for a sudden mass of unstable (close to) supersonic air rushing over an aerofoil followed by low pressure.

    Is this a deliberate consideration by DICE? Not sure but it isn't as simple.as you suggest it is.

    Not saying this is an explanation as to why it's like this in-game, but exploding bombs move air so quickly that it creates a vacuum in the epicenter momentarily. AIR planes can't fly in a vacuum.

    The BFV bombs have such pathetic blast damage that I almost doubt their explosion is creating supersonic air when they cannot even knock some soldier off his feet when blowing up 10 meters away

    Just one of many reasons why you shouldn't try to apply 'basic physics' to anything Battlefield.

    That's why I always press space (mapped to climbing) while dropping 1000lb 4000lb, 500kg and 1000kg bombs.

    So do I.  I still get sucked to the ground.

    the planes gets pushed downwards because the explosion hit the tail

    Actually a legit possible reason.  Nice one.  Still hate it and it doesn't feel like that, but good thinking.

    I'm pretty sure this is the case. What other guys said about explosions, air pressure, etc is true but there's still a pressure wave (shock wave, blast wave or whatever you wanna call it) right after the explosion and if you are close enough you can feel it. And since you are moving forward, that wave will always hit your rear. So it actually does push you up but only the rear, consequently, nose goes down.
