It seems that different HE weapons have different potentiates versus structures. The heaviest of structures require the biggest explosions: dread/train artillery, heavy bombs/torps from bombers and the blimp.


I know vehicle weapon stats are hard to get/ understand due to multipliers and whatnot, but do we have any idea how the various bombs compare? I assume the dreadnought and airship bombs are the biggest, but how does the bomber torpedo compare with the other bomber configuration that drops multiple bombs (can't remember the size of them off the top of my head)? It'd be also good to know where the train mortar fits in with them too.

So many bombs.... so little in-game info
Torp best vehicle killer by far.

I think you meant Barrage, not Torpedo.

Torpedo is ass, far too specialised, no spotting camera.


But does the torpedo itself do more damage than the barrage bombs? I assume it is the same one mounted on the boat.
The combined damage for the Torps + bombs is the single largest bit of burst damage versus armor in the game.

Like Oscar said, it trades that ability for very poor infantry killing. I'd argue the AT job is more important on many of the maps though.

Yeah but if one actually sees the bomber, that guy might wants to do some kills before his rear gunner jumps out and he gets shredded by the two fighters.

If you're going getting a single pass it, all the more reason it should be against a tank or similar.
