Total expenditure of bombs was (in tons):
1941 - 66 371
1942 - 152 015
1943 - 181 801
1944 - 178 181
1945 - 117 900
I expect that German expenditure was not less than this

I would have to assume that LW make-up was different by 1943. Most Do-17 were probably replaced by Ju-88. I wonder if Number of Ju-87 probably also shrank. Additionally I wonder if fighters were caring more ground attacks when compared to 1939.Domen121 wrote:Maybe for the LF it was 100 to 250?
German numbers for September 1939:
100,300 bombs 10 kg
295,350 bombs 50 kg
16,540 bombs 250 kg
1,709 bombs 500 kg
So the most used bomb types were 50 kg and 10 kg.
