INTRODUCTION

The Consolidated B-36 Peacemaker  was a WWII design for a very long range strategic bomber, propelled by six piston engines driving pusher propellers.  Later, this arrangement was supplemented by two pairs of jet engines.  Out of the 385 aircrafts manufactured, 226 served as bombers, 142 as photo-reconnaissance aircrafts, 1 as a transport and 16 were assigned to other purposes.  Among those, two B-36F were converted into B-36G jet bomber prototypes, later re-designated YB-60.

Suffice it to say that it was an attempt to move forward from piston to jet propulsion without having to re-design a new aircraft.   Actually, over 70% of the basic design was maintained with "only" the wings, tail and tailplane arrangement being replaced.  Then, the initial results weren''t satisfactory and the USAF decided they would be happy with the Boeing B-52.

As these never saw service, a design inspired by the YB-60A should not have been included in Atlantic Air Combat™ - let's consider that a fantasy.  In Atlantic Air Combat™, the BB60A10 will be closer to the BB30H55 than the YB-60A was to the B-36F as wings and tail plane will remain roughly identical.  However, the sluggish 8700 lbf J57P3 will not be imitated, and the Peacedealer will be offered the same powerplant as the BB52J10 : eight JR7P5900 power units (10500 lbf/13500 lbf) mimicking the J57P59.  The purpose is to offer both aircraft similar if not identical performances with the main differences to be found in the bomb loads.

BOMB LOADS

The Peacemaker was donned with two bomb bays, each divided in two parts.  For convenience these are named bay #1 to bay #4 from front to back, with the after part of bay #2 and the front part of bay #3 occupied by the wing structure (and incorporated fuel).  Also, a pressurised tunnel on the port side allowed crew to go from the front to the aft compartment.  As far as it known, the YB-60 bomb bay layout was identical to the one found on the B-36.

The B-36 was essentially a nuclear bomb carrier, which is not an aspect we fancly a lot in AAC™.  So we paid some attention to what the actual bomb bay layout had been, and its carrying capacity.  With details varying slightly from one source to the other, this lead to the below detailed layouts, containing hints of potential cheats.  Even excluding these, the B-36 was a bomb truck, at least on paper as the Peacemaker  never brought peace anywhere.

To define AAC™ bomb bays, the following process is followed :
1. trying to understand the internal layout of the examined aircraft
2. assembling details regarding limitations (maximum weight, maximum number of bombs, etc.)
3. define AAC™ bomb loads within constraints or not - when trepassing known limits, it's done within reason
4. add weapons and/or weapon types not initially provided for the said aircraft

AAC™ bomb bays are thus based on historical details but do not necessarily respect them.  Besides the cheated bomb loads outlined below, the BB60A10 will carry a wider range of weapons, including sea mines, anti-shipping torpedoes and possibly a type of depth charge.  However, the 12,000 lb Tarzon  (essentially a radio-guided T-10 Tall Boy with added control surfaces) is an unlikely option.  As the YB-60 never carried any bombs in anger, one can only imagine what it would have been capable of.  The following is based on the work carried out on the BB36H55 and the loadouts are essentially the same.

100 lb - 250 lb Bombs
It doesn't seem the B-36 was scheduled to deliver bombs smaller than the 500 lb AN/M-64.  However, the RB-36s are noted to carry 80 T-86 flash bombs, which are similar in weight and dimensions to the 100 lb AN/M30.

In the absence of details regarding how the 80 T-86 flash bombs were arranged (78 shown in the below illustration), a layout is imagined based on the assumed 500 lb three-columns disposition, and then extrapolated to smaller bombs, first trying to match the quantity of T-86 flash bombs, then to fill the 4 bomb bays with either 100 lb or 250 lb bombs

500 lb Bombs - B-36 Baground illustration
If most FD scale sketches are self explanatory, they do not pretend to be historically exact.  Especially not so for the 500 lb bombs as the original layout is unclear (see background illustration).  The sketch used as reference mentions 129 bombs while Joe Baugher mentions 132.  We were unable to solve the equation, and the illustration thus shows ... 134 bombs.  Purists will hopefully forgive and anyone with knowledge is welcome to comment (email).

For Atlantic Air Combat™ ends and purposes, the number is pushed up to 162.

In this setup, the columns in bay#1 and #4 are short of one or two bombs, which accounts for a total of 72.  With the B-36 allegdly capable to lift up to 86,000 lb the number is thus pushed up somewhat.

No references to the carrying of sea mines were found.  With the Mk36 having approximately the same dimensions as the AN/M-64, it is assumed a similar layout would have been possible.

4000 lb/4750 lb Bombs  &  4000 lb Betty  Depth Charges - B-36 Baground illustration
The M56 demolition bomb is often referred to as a "4,000 lb" bomb, while some source mention an actual weight of 4,750 lbs (with 3721 lb of explosive filling), and this higher mass is retained for AAC™ purposes.

The Mk90 Betty  was a 1250 lb depth charge armed with a 2kt nuclear warhead.  In AAC™, the shell is used to imagine a 4,000 lb conventional depth charge carrying 2,860 lb of explosive which may also be used as a conventional bomb.

As mentioned, the B-36 was essentially a nuclear bomb carrier, and it is assumed it was designed around the Mk4, a bomb similar to the Mk3 dropped on Nagasaki, or around the similarly sized Mk5 or Mk6.  Then, the shell of the Mk3 was also used with a 6300 lb conventional filling to create a demolition weapon, the Pumpkin bomb. quite a few (43?) of which were dropped on Japanese factories during the second world war.  In AAC™ this bomb is known as the 13T13.

In Atlantic Air Combat™ the number of any of these items is increased to six.

Based on the same design as the T10 and T14, a yet larger earth quake  bomb, the T-12, was made in the US and a pair of these were lifted by a B-36B in January 1949 for testing purposes.  These were dummies but had the same mass and were dropped from 35,000 ft and 40,000 ft respectively.

2000 lb Anti-Shipping Torpedo - The Mk13
Whether of the anti-shipping or the anti-submarine type, the Peacemaker  was naturally never scheduled to carry torpedoes.  With enough ASW platforms in the game, there is no need to add ASW weapons to the BB36H55 and the potential carrying of DC090 depth charge is already enough a departure from reality.  Then, in Atlantic Air Combat, anti-shipping torpedoes are scheduled for two purposes :
attack large shipping convoys, a rehearsal of WWII events
special purpose, the details of which are hidden from the public at this time

With the BB36H55 able to fly slow enough to consider the dropping of these, the temptation was irresistible to try and manoeuvre such a large aircraft to deliver these, either in the open seas or ... in other circumstances.  The same would apply to the BB60A10.

3800 lb Anti-Shipping Jet Powered Torpedo Carrying Missile - The AUM-21B Fulmar
The AUM21B Fulmar  is an AAC™ fantasy weapon mimicking the AUM-N-2 Petrel used by the US Navy between 1956 and 1959 (see Illustration), whithout respecting the Petrel dimensions.  In particular, the Fulmar  is longer and has a much shorter wing span allowing it to be carried internally by the BB60A10.  This particular weapons may be briefly described as follows :
it is a stand-off weapon equipped with an active radar and an under-water homing device making it a full "fire & forget" anti-shipping weapon
when approaching a target, it automatically locks on it from a distance of 35 nmi (destroyer sized ship)
the weapon may be launched 17 nmi from its target from a minimum altitude of 1000 ft, and a maximum altitude of 2400 ft
like the ASS13 the maximum launching speed is 410 kn
when launched, the weapon automatically starts its jet engine, stabilizes at 200 ft above water and accelerates up to 330 kn (Mach 0.5)
at a distance of 1  nautical mile from target, the torpedo automatically separates from its wing/engine assembly and enters the water
when entering water, it automatically starts its under water engine, accelerates to a speed of 33 kn and homes toward its target
the underwater range is 3 nmi
if notwithstanding its homing device, the torpedo misses its target, it may acquire another located within 2 nmi of its line of travel
if no further acquisition is made, it carries on on its initial line of travel until autonomy is exhausted; then it just drops to the seabed

Few aircraft carry this weapon, and the BB60A10 is one of them (the AUM21B is not carried by the BB36H55).

Liferafts - 10 or 15 persons
Either in the real world or in Atlantic Air Combat™, any aircraft with a bomb/weapons bay is able to carry liferafts and AAC's Peacedealer  will be no exception, even more so as the sheer size of the bomb bay allows the carrying of quite of few of these.  Both the LR-10 (10 persons) and the LR-15 (15 persons) are examined but only one type will be retained for game purposes.  With a life saving capacity of 1620 persons for the LR-10 against 1530 persons for the LR-15, the former should be favoured.

PHOTO-RECONNAISSANCE VARIANT(s)
Many B-36 airframes were configured for photo-reconnaissance, as were the RB-52B and the B-52C .  The RB-36E, RB-36D, and RB-36F varied in internal layout, but to keep things simple and referring to the RB-36D, the setup may be described as follows :

Bay #1 pressurized manned compartment with 14 cameras. Bay #3 a 3,000 US gallons droppable fuel tank
Bay #2 80 × T86 photo flash bombs Bay #4 ECM equipment (no application in AAC™)

For the BB60A10, no flares bombs are provided and the photo operators are located in a container hoisted into the first bomb bay

DEFENSIVE ARMAMENT
The first YB-60 had a crew of five (pilot, copilot, navigator, bombardier and radio operator/tail gunner), all were seated in the pressurized forward compartment. From the B-36F defensive armament, only the tail 20-mm cannons remained, remotedly controlled via a tail located AN/APG-32 radar.

The second YB-60 however had the upper forward and lower after turrets were re-installed, only loosing the front and upper after turret.  Production aircraft were scheduled to have a crew of nine to operate these guns.

Like the frist YB-60, the BB60A10 only retains the tail guns.

FUEL LOAD

As a general rule in AAC™, fuel load is arbitrarily fixed for all aircraft, according to their loadouts (with or without extra fuel tanks, etc).  It is usually fixed in order to be compatible with the heaviest bomb load.  In this instance, the theoretical fuel load of 30,306 gallons (36,396 US gallons, 137,773 litres) is deliberately reduced to 27925 gallons in order to match the fantasy maximum 88,000 lb bomb load and the alleged 450,000 lb MTOW.  With a theoretical game range of 6,255 nmi (11,584 km, 7200 miles) giving rougly a combat range of 2815 nmi, there is no reason to define other fuel loads.

Then players may modifiy this fuel load by increment of 1%, up to MTOW value and/or 100% fuel capacity, in order to increase range or postpone the necessity of in-flight refueling.  Players may also reduced fuel load by increment of 1%, to create the necessity of in-flight refueling or any other purpose of theirs.

Example
Regarding the BB60A10, a bomb load of 80×750 lb bombs would give a take off weight (TOW) of 421,440 lbs, somewhat bellow the maximum possible.  Players would thus be free to modify the fuel load as follows :

Aircraft ID Loadout ID Loadout Unrefueled Loadout Fuel Basic Fuel × 7.6 % TOW Range %
BB60A10 /BBB0# 60×M117 154560.lb 60000 lb 27295.gal 207442.lb 90% 422002.lb 6255.nmi 90%

The proportional increase of range as the fuel load is incremented is not realistic, and is not intended to be so.

SPECIFICATIONS
The fantasy BB60A10 is here compared to historical references, and to the other AAC™ eight engined jet bomber, the BB52J10.
