SC = ?

AB = ?

SB = ?

What's the difference between them? How are they best empolyed? (against what targets?)

only just posted this yesterday in another thread http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif



the german AB is a sub-munitions container basically drops heaps of little anti-personnel frag grenages

as for the rest basically ...
SC = SPRENGBOMBE CYLINDRICH (thin cased general purpose).
PC = PANZERBOMBE CYLINDRICH (armour piercing).
SD = SPRENGBOMBE DICKWANDIG (thick cased semi-armour piercing).
LC = LICHT CYLINDRISCHE (LC 50 parachute flare).


in detail:

SC = SPRENGBOMBE CYLINDRICH - designed for maximum blast effect having a high charge-to-weight ratio of 55 per cent explosive SC bombs were used primarily for general demolition. Approximately 8 out of 10 of German high explosive bombs dropped on the U.K. were of the SC type. Sizes included 50 kg, 250 kg, 500 kg, 1000 kg "Hermann", and the 1800 kg "Satan". There was even a 2500 kg type although rarely used.

PC = PANZERBOMBE CYLINDRICH - Having a charge-to-weight ratio of 20% explosive, because of their penetration qualities they were used primarily against ships and fortifications. The 1400 kg "Fritz" is a good example of this type.

SD = SPRENGBOMBE DICKWANDIG - Medium cased steel weapons and, being either anti-personnel or semi-armour piercing, had a charge-to-weight ratio of 35 per cent explosive; 50, 250, 500 and 1700 kg versions.

LC = LICHT CYLINDRISCHE - About the same size as a conventional SC 50 bomb, hence its designation "50". Used for target illumination and marking at night.

So I will probably use the SD from now on, just so I can say: "AH HA!! Got you with my **** Wand!!"

parachute flares... you know, depending on how long they burn, could be spectacularly useful online, specially dusk/night missions with ground attack objectives

ground attack planes follow one guy who searches for and marks the target.... then all the other ground attackers dont need to look, they can go straight for it and hit the targets hard, then get out before we start losing planes.

pathfinder-style...
