I had a go with them over and island airbase several times in fact...

I thought that the chute was to slow the bomb down to let the bomber get clear?

I took 1 or 2 goes at 300ft not high for a bomb run, and I hit the button and let them go!

I F2'd outside to see them fall? a few seconds after the chutes opened the bombs exploded I would take it? at the 300ft I dropped them at..

Are these bomb suppose to air-burst? and if so how low do I have to do to get any real damage on the ground?

100ft is about the right altitude.

The current fusing is an error I think. All my books talk about parafrags having instantaneous fuzes.
