In the game, scout aircraft do not use their bombs although they get som anti-ship values. 
This is like that so far for technical reasons


Historically, yes they did carry bombs
Ex: attack on the Zuiho at the Battle fo the Coral sea

During scouting missions SBD Dauntless usually carried 500 lb bombs, which allowed a range of 325 miles. With 1000 lb bombs SBD range was reduced to 250 miles.

That is correct, can we plan for dive bombers to deviate from their scouting mission and have them attack
