My only problem with the idea of "Bigger the bomb, more supplies destroyed" is fact we can't load out 2E's or 4E's with a specific bombload, if this is the case,
why can't my B-24's fly with 4x 2,000lb bombs or 8x1000's rather then typical load of 8x500's?
Well if the plane carries less bombs, then there is less chance of actually hitting something in order to make a bigger crater.
all depends on what % more damage a 500lb bmb does compared to a base 250Lb one. I'm hazarding a guess here but it would make diminishing returns as your only still hitting one spot with any given bomb (albeit with larger blast radius).
Personally i would prefer to hit a 'supply dump' with 100 20Lb mixed frag/he bomblets than one 2000lb monster. assuming theres not much in bunkers (AE doesnt model this anyway(think sevastapol)).
Just my 2p on this , and i like the idea of mixing up damage based on bomb/shell size anyway.
Actually , Michael , does AE comsider fort size in the calculations on supply hits at all ?
sorry for the spelling . English is my main language , I just can't type . and i'm too lazy to edit :)
