Also called "GP" bombs, "dumb bombs" or
"gravity bombs", these are the main core of Atlantic Air Combat™ bombs even if a few other types may
co-exist in the game. AAC™ GP bombs are listed on the main page,
with background assembled on separate pages.
Not all vintage or Cold War GP bombs are of interest to AAC™
and the values eventually retained for AAC purposes may differ from what has been collected. A good example is the
4,000 lb US M-56 for which a total weight value of 4750 lb has been found and retained (but the source lost !!).
The same applies to Soviet bombs of the 1940s and 1950s for which scores of data variants have been collected - when
retained, a single set of values will be associated with a given bomb type/reference.
