Hi to all,
the manual of Forgotten Battles does not explain which is the classification for the bombs, there are many of them. SC, AB, MK and so on.
Can someone please enlight me on the meaning of these abbreviation? And when they must be used?

Thank You

Karl

This should get you started. It hasn't been updated for awhile, but has all the basic bomb information.
