Trying to take out some medium and heavy armor. Are 100lb bombs up to the task? Too much? Doesn't help I miss all the time anyway! Is there a spreadsheet out there that may help?

Can an IL-2, for instance, strafe and destroy medium armor successfully? Does strafe attack work on Personell Carriers?

Thanks! I love the IL-2! What a nice and forgiving ac. Ground Attack is quite fun!

Here's a link to an archive of the Mudmovers.com site that has loadouts and ideal targets for the different types of bombs etc. :

Is there a Russian munitions guide as well? I couldn't find them after some browsing on that site.

100lb bombs are not very good for killing tanks. They are comperable to the German SC50 (50kg bomb). They are best suited for destroying bridges. Anything short of a direct hit with one is unlikely to do any damage to a tank. Even if you get a direct hit it still might not destroy it. 500kg (1000lb) bombs are much better for killing tanks. With those you do not need a direct hit. In fact with a 500kg bomb you can easily destroy 2 or 3 tanks if they are in standard formation. A 250kg (500lb) bomb is what I consider the minimum for tank busting. It is enough to knock out 1 or 2 tanks.

When using bombs at low level against tanks don't forget to add at least 2 seconds delay - the bigger bombs will KO you as well within ~300m.
When bombing ships ensure delay is set to zero (the collision detect model will otherwise allow the bomb to pass right through the target)

Strafing with cannon has a chance of destroying up to medium armour - attack from the rear with plunging fire to get rounds into the engine deck. 20mm+ guns are pretty good at taking out APCs and other very lightly armoured targets from any aspect.
