1000 LB bomb not enogh to blow up the Tornado IDS WTD61

Chased down the Tornado in my F-14 and started shooting at it with my guns. They had 3 1000 lb bombs on the underside and i managed to hit one. There was a big explosion and knocked out the engines but didnt get the kill and they were still flying. There were 2 bombs left, but that should have obliterated the plane not just kill systems. After he hit the ground i got credit but he shouldn’t have survived an explosion like that at point blank range when that same bomb will kill a tank.

They nerfed the bomb explody. You still get the fun earthshatteringkaboom but it no longer automatically destroys the victim. I guess doubling down on unrealism/accuracy is what Gaijin decided was “balanced”.
