No... they did get pretty lucky.


"Thirteen unexploded bombs[22] hit British ships without detonating. Lord Craig, the former Marshal of the Royal Air Force, is said to have remarked: “Six better fuses and we would have lost”[23] although Ardent and Antelope were both lost despite the failure of bombs to explode. The fuses were functioning correctly, and the bombs were simply released from too low an altitude.[24][25]"

While the attacks were undoubtedly brave, the low release of the unretarded bombs (some of which, ironically, were sold to the Argentine FAA by the British years earlier) meant that many never exploded as there was insufficient time in the air for them to arm themselves. Simple free-fall bombs will, at low altitude, impact almost directly below the dropping aircraft, therefore there is a minimum safe altitude for release. The pilots would doubtless have been aware of this, but in the heat of bomb alley, many failed to climb to the necessary release point. The problem was solved by the improvised fitting of retarding devices, allowing low-level bombing attacks as employed on June 8.

the bombs dosnt explot because they had a delay (like 2 seg) before they detonate , to avoid that the plane was damage by his own bomb (to avoid the radar , the A4 fly very near to the water , only 10 m over the sea) but the shield of the british ships was to weak , so the bomb only pass like a knife in butter .
