B-17 crews wondered the same thing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The bomb shouldn't explode unless armed

Smack a bomb hard enough and it will go off. This is modeled in the sim.

not usually...

The arming vane, a small propeller, is rotated by airflow after weapon release. A specified number of rotations arms the fuse.

almost any weapon carried by a plane has a fuse, most of the bombs had a pin wired to a support, that when the bomb was released, the pin would be pulled

also, some/others (you may of seen the pics of them) have a little prop on the nose or tail of the weapon, once the weapon is dropped and the pin pulled, the prop has to turn so many times, before the fuse is armed

of course, not everybody did it the same way, but that is a basic/simple way of doing it

a bomb/rocket, can exploded if hit, but that is more in the bad luck area, as in 1 bullet can blow a plane up, it didn't happen alot, but the chance was always there

It can happen, I had the opportunity to speak to a WWII Privateer pilot who had it happen to a plane in his formation. (Actually depth charges).
The charge was hit by .50 cal fire (he thought)
from either his own plane or the third AC in their group, the detonation destroyed the AC that had jettisoned it's charges.

Its a very off chance. I have seen a formation of 4 Pe-8's explode when I hit the 5000kg bomb one held. I think that when the bomb is dropped, its counted as a differant object and may have its own rules. Like not being able to shoot it when its dropping http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, I've shot bombs in FB and they exploded, I've also crashed into the dropped bombs and blew up myself, and the 3 bombers I was flying against.

Once I though it would be 'kewl' to shoot a FAB5000 a Pe-8 had dropped with the Me262... yeah turning yourself into a transonic wingless flamming lawn dart was 'kewl' http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You can shoot bombs when they're dropped?... from the original il2 i tried this on a 5000kg bomb... I even watched the track i recorded and it Showed the 37mm rounds going through it.... as well as the 50's from my p39q1. Since then I havent tried it. Well maybe in FB but I got the same results.

Sure if she wasn't a nazi and if she was still alive - I'd Hump Her.

She was Hannah Reich or something like that. She was a female German test pilot during WWII. She flew a glider model of the me163 and a few other gliders. Also flew a helicopter inside of a building but thats nothing special compared to how she flew a storch(fi-something) german plane into berlin while the russians were bombarding it. She flew in there with some high ranking guy, he got shot up, and she landed in the middle of a street. ALL BECAUSE they both wanted to see that wanker hitler before he whacked himself and that evil bronze mistress of his http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS she aint the hottest girl but sure if she was young and still alive, Id hump her.

Not too sure about that zyzbot but im sure she wanted to. She was one of those hardline 'fuhrur' people who would do anything to save the MAN SHE LOVED... Btw I dont think any of those manned V-1's ever flew into action or even a prototype... never left the drawing board... they left the B17 kamikazis to those guys in 190 'wolf' packs or whatever it is. Unless you can find any other information about actual manned V-1s that were used.

Having been a bomb squad member in the US Army, I can tell you for a fact bombs can explode being hit by cannon or .50 cal API fire. If the bomb is penetrated there is an excellent chance of a high-order detonation!!!

Exactly why the AR-50 and M82A1 is used for anti material and Anti-ordanance/explosive disposal use.

Thats what I thought... I mean, it should be obvious, a bomb is filled with explosives, so if you get an API round, or definitely a cannon shell, into one, there WILL be an explosion! LOL http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
