the Fab5000 was no Luftwaffe bomb but a VVS - RUSSIAN - one..

PE-8's carried those, not 109 or 190's...

ah yes, I'm not sure, but i think this bomb was dropped into streets of Helsinki, but fortunalety for the citizens it turned out to be dud http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif I have somewhere a photo of Fab-5000, which landed right next to a car in Helsinki, actually the bomb was bigger, than the car http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Don't want to be near that, when it goes off.. it is said two 5-ton bombs dropped on Helsinki during one of the raids in February 1944, some sources even say four fab5000s .. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
