Usage in battles
The SC1800B is best used against bases in air RB. In air RB, there are 2 different kinds of base HP standard and double HP. The SC1800B can destroy a standard HP base by itself while you'll need 2 x 1,800 kg bombs to destroy the double HP base. These bombs can also be useful in mixed ground battles, as they will knock out any vehicle within a 10-20 m radius with their large explosive mass. Beware of friendly fire incidents however.
Pros and cons
- Great for high altitude bombing as its large blast radius means you can still destroy the target even if you miss
- Great for air battles as it will destroy most bases with only one bomb without the need of a second pass or the risk of some bombs not hitting the target
- Very few planes can carry such a bomb, making it quite rare to see in mixed ground battles
