Usage in battles
The D.T. N°2 is a small bomb with relatively small explosive mass, so it's not advised to drop just one at a time. However, its small size means a lot will be able to be carried into battle, allowing to perform carpet bombing, launching multiple bombs over an area to maximise the damage.
Pros and cons
- Can be carried in large quantities
- Effective in CAS as it often meets reserve vehicles
- Almost useless if used individually
- Less effective against heavy pillboxes and armoured vehicles
