The Pe-8 is the one with the heaviest bomb right? Is it nuclear or sub-nuclear or nah? How much does a modern nuclear bomb weigh?

May the wind sweep you off your feet, and guide you to the distant stars.

5000 KG not lb. More like 11000 lb.
Nothing special, just really large.

No idea on weights of nukes.

It's a 5000 kg bromb. That equates to 11,023 lbs. I have no clue what a modern nuke weighs but I know this isn't one.

Which reminds me, that we dont have "dudes" in FB.
Some other sims/games provided some "historic ammunition"/"flawless ammunition" switch.

But heck, that would be frustrating /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
And all the discussions about what side had more/less dudes...

VICTOR MAY HAVE BEEN A WEIRDO,BUT HE WAS A DAMN GOOD FIGHTERPILOT.

There are lb or KG? I sure hope kilograms /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Then again it makes me wonder.. US heavy bombers will be eaten alive by Russian planes like Lagg3, and I-16, whereas their Defensive gunners dont have any impact on Lagg3 or I-16.. and Lagg3 will be easily to be able to destroy some 12 B-17 with their rockets and super armament.. poor B-17s..
