(30-07-2021) [2.7.0.18] Wrong explosive type in the 1600lb AN-Mk1 bomb


 

 

# Description

In the 1600lb AN-Mk1 bomb used in the AU-1, the bomb is listed as having 94.8kg of TNT filler.

However, according to OP 1280, Aircraft Bombs (1955) (page 32), the explosive filler was not TNT, but instead Explosive D (a.k.a. Dunnite).

If calculated, 94.8kg (209lbs) of Explosive D would have the TNT equivalent  of 239.2kg.
