Hog_No32 & Rainmaker, thank you both for your interesting discussion, reason I asked was because I guess I didn't (still don't actually) see a real reason for dumb bombs over smart ones. At least, nowadays.

Nevertheless, just tried a few bombing runs, definitely noticed a difference in the pull-up cue and break X logic, for the better. Went almost as easy as Wags showed in his vids.

In practice, a "good pilot" can drop a dumb bomb almost as accurately as an LGB. Delivery methods are almost, if not, identical. Practically, laser guidance is more an insurance policy than a necessity.

Atleast this applies for marine earth movers circa turn of the century. Given other services delivery pholosophyies and their proficiency, results may vary.

Not from 25,000ft, they can't. Even from 10,000ft, if the computer perfectly computes the trajectory and the pilot releases with the pipper exactly in the middle of the target, wind differences across altitudes and bomb imperfections will buy a much larger miss than an LGB.
