Hi guys,

This is the best place I can think to ask. I need reference or informed suggestions for what a modern US bomber bombing run explosion pattern might look like. Timings of when bombs go off, distance between impacts, volume of bombs ususally dropped and how their size and magnitude effects their placement & dispersal. Assume high explosive bombs but nothing guided. Also what might be useful, bomb trajectory and arcs from the plane to ground.

I can't let you all know what it's for, NDA and all that, but I'll let you know when the project is finished (alas, nothing sim related :P ).

You can work it out yourself.Speed and height of the aircraft, the time the bomb dropped from the rack (usually a third of second between bombs) and the drag co efficent of the bomb. Simple really!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Hi Spiffy,

There maybe some info here but the site is huge and deals with everything military, but I think you have to pay for the manuals that come on a cd. I didnt go very far into the site, but it looks promising.

Scroll down to vector additions, and subtractions and there are some charts and animations for physics applications.

I hope this is enough to give you a good start on your project, good luck and I hope this helps.
