It began with the Pe-8 5000 kg bomb, now we have the Mistel combo. It seems like the developers are slowly giving us options for bigger blasts. It seems to be well received. So what other "mother of all bomb" variations would you like Oleg to give us in the future -- Tallboy, Grand Slam, Fat Man & Little Boy, others ?

Those big bombs are fun sprises.

Have you seen the AB1000 incendiary cluster bomb? Only the Fw 200 can carry it yet. The AB1000 shoots out incendiary bomblets in stages and covers a HUGE area. Really fascinating to watch it go.

If the bombs keep getting bigger we're gonna need larger maps.... http://www.airwar.ru/image/i/weapon/tsarbomb.jpg

Especially now that we have the "Tirpitz" as an object, we need a Lancaster with a Grand Slam next !

Tsar bomba takes the cake at 57 megatons. To give you an idea of how powerful this thing was, let me tell you that the yield of the actual weapon version was supposed to be 100 megatons. The scientists took the Uranium 238 out in the test to make the test cleaner. The device was parachute dropped and detonated at an altitude of 4000m. The fireball easily reached the ground. The flash was seen as far away as 1000 miles, and the shock wave circled the Earth thrice. The 57 megaton version was capable of causing third degree radiation burns out to a radius of 110 miles. The full 100 megaton version is estimated to be able to cause third degree radiation burns out to 170 miles. The effect of the blast, if detonated over western Europe, would reach all the way out to edge of the Warsaw pact countries. Sick.
