Big Bombs

I'd known about the Tallboy and Grand Slam bombs, mainly because my favorite WWII bomber (the B-29) was modified to carry them. However, I didn't know all that much detail until I found this . A bomb falling at Mach 1 is pretty durned impressive.

I'm sure it all comes as no surprise whatever to our resident battleship expert. Anything to add Jeff?
