Torpedos and bombs for ships 100%.

Not sure about bombs for tanks. Hangar is not big enough and those huge bombs have obvious results if you place them next to a tank…

But it would be funny to see a milk truck getting vaporized by a 12000 pound bomb.

Big bombs, sure, but smaller bombs (like 100kg or 250kg) would be nice as it would help people understand how far away, and at what angle, they can survive those type of attacks.
For example, I did not understand how a 50kg bomb killed me (in a ISU-152), when it has a maximum penetration power of around 70mm of armour (while the ISU-152 has 90mm on its side). After I had taken a closer look, it turns out the bomb was close enough to the tracks that it went through the roof armour of the tracks, and into the crew compartment. This would have been more clear if there was some sort of protection analysis for this.

I wish they would also let you simulate shots impacting the ground the tank is on. You can learn a lot about what overpressure options your shells give you from that. For example, which tanks you can kill by shooting HE/HESH at the ground underneath the hull or on the inside of one of their tracks.

That would be nice.

Protection Analysis for Tow-2Bs and BILLs do not work properly, as they are treated as a regular ATGM.
