Something has to be done,
I attacked 39 Pe-8s with 5000lbers and they blew up at the same time.
And to top it off I only got credit for one.

This is not real at all. Could something be done to correct this ordance explosions .
Ether let the bombs tumble out of a destroyed plane or tone down them blowing up by at least 50 percent while in flight.
Thank you

It could very well be real. On occasion this did happen - if fault in bomb or mistake made when setting detonation caps and fuses. Or perhaps a flak hit.

Luck of the draw. Fly with bombs this can happen.

That's what on board that was the cause.
I do not think that the bombs while loaded should detonate so easy.
Detontating from gun fire should not be so common place or easy.
I could see loosing say up to four planes from a formation but 39 went at once.
If this is not at least looked at, It would effect the close Knit box formation tactics used by U.S. heavy bombers.
The 500lbers are fine.
1000lbers may need to be looked at.
Played same situation 3x now with same results.
I do have a tight stacked(wish my girl friend was) formation.

No it doesn't. I've dropped dozens of the large bombs on servers all over the place and never had a bomb blow up in mid air.

and when a plane carries a bomb outside and I shoot the bomb the bomb at least should become unusable or explode. Currenly bullets go through the bomb http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
