Usage in battles
- Ground RB
Due to its overwhelming explosive power, the SC2500 is able to destroy multiple tanks that are in close proximity. It is best used on ground targets that are close together or that stand on a capture point as it has enough range to clean the entire point. Be careful not to bomb your own forces since the blast radius is large.
- Air RB
The SC2500 lacks versatility in realistic air battles since you can bomb only one base at a time with it. It also slows down the plane a lot. The He 111 H-16 has better options (2x SC1000 bombs) for that role. Since maps usually feature 3 bases at that BR, you won't be able to destroy them all because you won't have the time to return to base several times without getting shot down or the match ending. It is advised not to use the SC2500 bomb.
Pros and cons
Summarise and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.
- Devastating payload
- Great blast radius
- Severe impact on the carrier's flight performance
Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the
