In the context of AAC a "bomber" is an aircraft enquipped with an
enclosed bomb bay, not to be confused with a weapons bay (eg: F-102 Delta
Both so called tactical and strategic bombers are listed below with an
indication of their maximum bomb load. In practice the bomb load will
depend on various factors like the size of the bomb(s) carried. In the
quick comparison below, both the internal and external bomb capacity are
mentioned, specifying the number and type of bombs referred to (in
AAC...). When only a total weight is mentioned, it's shown as an
unverified preliminary data.
Several are propeller driven, without the engine type (piston or turboshaft)
being defined in the table. However, several types are clearly of WWII
vintage or technology, and are identified as such. Some bombers are operated from
Also mentioned in the list are other aircrafts, similarly equipped with a bomb
bay, which may thus used as a bomber but are otherwise classified.
The "AAC Operators" is a temporary mention, due to be updated as work
progresses drafting the game, as the list of bombers itelf which may see
additional aircrafts being mentioned (if any has been forgotten at this early
stage...) but will most likely see several types deleted.
