View Full Version : Anyone willing tell me when to use which bomb/rocket

Have placed already two posts regarding this but dont' get an answer.

Can someone tell me when to use which rocket and bomb in FB/PF. There are many different loads you can choose from and I don't know which one take for which missions. i.e. the Corsair can take three different rockets (Tiny Tim, HVAR, HVAR AP) - what are the differences?

For armored vehicles or small boats, use AP HVARs. Regular ones will have less effect. Tiny Tim are good too, but you only get 2 of them.

For large ships, use Tiny Tim. You can sink carriers with just 2 of them.

Regular HVARs and 2.5in HVARs are really only useful against light vehicles, or widely dispersed static aircraft. You might also use them against airborne aircraft.

For bombs, use the largest bomb possible for all types of targets.

The effect of the bomb seems to increase exponentially with weight, so large bombs will do much more damage than multiple small bombs.

Except if you want to attack light, widely dispersed targets, like vehicle convoy or static planes. Then, parafrags can be very useful.

but im pnly able to sink a freither ore tanker vessel using 6 HVARs !
AP HVARs dont sink these ships in my experience.

Maybe AP not so good after all... I am just making assumptions based on FB.

But for sure, Tiny Tims rule everything.

*Sigh!* Ok! Ok!
I€ll have a go at it. First try this for some info http://www.ww2guide.com/bombs.shtml.

To the best of my knowledge,Tiny Tim€s are big rockets used against ships and fortifications.
HVAR (High Velocity Air Rockets) is bomb on the end of a rocket and are for various destruction. The AP (Armour Piercing) variety is used for blowing holes in armour plating.
