I just tried droping some bombs on a B-29 and found a glitch in the game.

When you drop a bomb on a plane it sinks in to the plane and explodesafter the bomb delay is up, what I found was weird is that explsion craters apear on the ground aswell even though the bomb detonated in the plane that is 500m above the ground.

Droping a 5000 pound bomb from the pe-8 into a B-29 also creates spectacular effects.

I would prefer it if bombs with delays set just caused the collision damage that a 500kg object would cause an aircraft rather than it 'sinking in' until the delay times out anddetonates the explosive.

Ive been mucking about with fuel tanks recently as there seem to be a few myths about them. They cause no damage at all, though they do seem to 'burst' into a cloud of liquid upon impact.

As for the FAB5000 leaving a crater if it detonates way above the groud - that is true. I experienced the same glitch when I decided to find out how stupid and kill steal like the AI were. I set up a mistel to be attacked by half a dozen Spits of varying skill level. They swarmed all over that thing until one of them shot the Mistel itself up and the resulting explosion took out all 6 Spits. Though the Mistel detonated at around 200m, there was still a crater.
