Actually, the standard bomb load of a Sally is 20x50kg bombs. The 50 kg bomb (about 110 lbs) was the pre war standard for JAAF. A Ki-30 carried 8 of them. So did a Ki-48 and a Ki-32 (the latter also could mount 2x15 kg bombs). It was the Ki-49 that introduced the 100 kg bomb as standard loadout. All of these loadouts are far more effective for ground support or airfield attacks than using a tiny number of 250 kg bombs are. In addition, they are far more historically correct, not only being typical, but in some cases, it is not even clear the 250 kg could be carried at all? A Ki-21 also could carry what amounts to an internal drop tank - a partial bomb bay tank which replaced 4 of its bombs. These 4 could STILL be carried, but externally, so only on short range missions (due to increased drag). [The tank held 500 litres of aviation spirit and increases the effective range of the aircraft, in game terms, by 3 hexes at normal and extended ranges, and by 11 hexes for transfer range.]
I'm playing with the bombload filters added on the new patches. I would like to know when assign less bombs but heavier and when small but lot of them.
Increasing number of bombs also increases number/chance of hits, so if you give lots of bombs - plane would be better in anti-ship role. Also you want to use bigger bombs, with better penetration, if plane should be used against armored ships.
Size of bomb does not seem to have much impact on destroying land devices, or damaging airfield (but it influences destroyed supply), so if you want plane to be used in ground support role give it lots of small bombs. I have used similar solution for LILYs. SALLY carries standard 4x250 kg bombs, but LILY 8x50kg, so it is obviously better for ground support, and have its usefulness, and is no longer poor SALLY version..
If I want that plane can be used to airlaid mines, what filter should I use?
No idea. Is there anything special set in original Scenarios? Maybe it is set in unit, not airframe?
