Hi To all,
I am newbie to this simulator and I can see that the Forgotten Battle's manual does not describe any ordinance, there are many kind of bombs that you can select, they are labeled like SC1000, AB500 MK250 and so on.

I know that the number is the weight of the bomb, but the letters? What mean the letters?

Anyone knows where I can find a complete list of the ordinance? And for wich target they should be used???

Thank you in advance.
