    Bombs come in many verities ranging from the hand thrown to the nuclear bombs carried by intercontinental missals. Some of the names you may be familiar with are hand grenades, bunker-busters, cluster bombs, napalm, air-fuel bombs, and smart bombs and dumb bombs. Each bomb is designed for a particulate type of task.

    Nuclear bombs come in two types: Strategical and Tactical. Strategical are designed for city size targets and come in at least to types. The first type is designed to give a strong blast and destroy everything within a certain range (depending upon the bomb’s yield), the other type that I am familiar with is called a Neutron Bomb, and it is design to give a minimum blast but maximum radiation. The Neutron Bomb will kill most of the people but spare most structures. Tactical Nuclear bombs are designed to be fire from 155 mm cannons on the battlefield and pack a tremendous amount of explosion in a very small area.

    The other types of bombs are called conventional weapons: Bunker Busters are designed to burrow deep underground before they explodes. Smart Bombs are under the control of a bombardier as they fall to their target. They may also be under the control of a program that directs the bomb as in intercontinental missals and cruse missals. The only control the bombardier has over the Dumb Bombs is the speed and direction of his aircraft at the time of release. Bunker-busters are designed to burrow deep under the surface before they explode, and are used on command and control position that have been harden or put underground.

    Cluster Bombs are a whole lot of small bombs that are packed into a single container that are dispersed upon a love level release by the bombardier; they are used against ground personal. Napalm Bombs are an incendiary mixture of polystyrene, benzene, and gasoline, and are also used against ground personal either on the ground or in foxholes or in non-harden bunkers.

    Air-fuel Bombs (also called Thermobaric wepons), has two steps in is detonation: First the fuel consisting of a container of either a volatile liquid or a finely powdered solid which could be an explosive or metal powder is released into the air from its container via a small explosion. Because the fuel is packed with out oxygen it cannot explode until it mixes with the air, after being given enough time to be thoroughly dispersed into the air a second small explosion ignites the mixture giving a much more powerful explosion then can be obtained by the use of an material that contains both agent and oxidizer such as TNT.

    Hand grenades are designed to be carried by the soldier on the ground and come in a verity of types. Manly the types are shrapnel, concussion, and smoke (see I finally got here). The shrapnel grenades wounds and kills by the small peaces of metal it hurled as it explodes. The concussion grenades kills and wounds by the sudden increase in air pressure it creates as it explodes.

    The smoke grenades (and larger smoke devises) are used for two main reasons: to conceal or to signal. If you wish to move from point A to point B without the enemy seeing you as you go, if they do not have thermo-imaging devices, you lay down some smoke. How it is used for signaling is limited only by the soldier’s imagination: To mark a landing zone, to signal an advance or withdrawal, etc.
