bomber

Drug slang
A regional street term for a large joint (marijuana cigarette).
 
Military medicine
A military aircraft designed to attack land and sea targets by dropping bombs onto them. They are divided into:
• Strategic bombers—which bomb strategic targets (e.g., supply bases, bridges, factories, shipyards, and cities) to damage an enemy's war effort. As a rule, strategic bombers deliver bigger bombs from higher altitude and are thus less precise. These are of greatest interest/concern for medical personnel on the ground because the damage is greater and less descriminate.
• Tactical bombers—which bomb specific military targets and installations with greater precision than strategic bombing.

Terrorism
A person who detonates an explosive with the intent of killing military personnel or civilians.
