Bit confused on these. Most aircraft have a combat/real radius, or an escort/real radius. Level bombers however, have "Combat", "Extended", and "Real". Combat and extended each appear beneath a given bomb load out, so I would assume those are the radius at which they carry that load?
However, I'm finding quite a few where the extended raius is less than the "Combat" radius. Many more it is ~20 or so miles greater, with a fractional bomb load.
One example, B-24D Liberator. 1042 mile radius with 6,600lbs of bombs, 1040 mile "extended" radius with 1,200lbs.
