Bombs and Ordnance


Military "bombs" and "ordnance" are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings. A bomb is a type of explosive weapon that is designed to cause damage by detonating. Ordnance, on the other hand, refers to all types of military weapons, including bombs, missiles, and artillery shells.

Bombs can be classified by their size, shape, and type of explosive material. A grenade is one of the smallest bombs. Bombs can be either conventional or nuclear. Conventional bombs use a chemical explosive material, while nuclear bombs use a nuclear reaction to create an explosion.
