yes they were very powerfull and did explode, because the germans had a special ammonition type called minengeschoss with extra much explosives. but it was not a explosion like in fb, there were no craters though...

Looking at some of the gun cam footage of attacks on B-17's will be a nice comparison of real life versus FB in the DM arena when the fortress arrives in October.

The MK108 cannon was a mix of explosive/tracer and mine shell (thin walled explosive). The greater quantity of explosive made the shell more powerfull than its weight or low velocity would otherwise allow.

they need to throw some slight recoil on the 4 108 cannons, i've read that 262s always had to fire diving on a foe becuase of less recoil, 3 browning .50 cal explosive rounds have as much explosives as a 108 shell but with less air drag then a 108shell fired at a higher muzzle velocity. Just shows ya how weak .50s are in fb.

Also when a 108 hits the ground shouldnt the explosion not look the same as a 100 250 500 or 1000lb bomb?

That's one thing i never liked, the explosions, and it tears an entire wing of A Pe-8 in one burst

2-3 hits on the same wing were enough to break the wing of the largest bombers. It is realistic. Do not forget that HE effect of Mk108 30mm hits is two times bigger than that of 37mm shells.
