Default Arado 234?

I've noticed that the Arado 234 does massive damage in games like Strike, especially in Korsun and the Ardennes (probably due to splash), e.g. it deals at least 150 points per run.

It's got 3x 500lb bombs, and this doesnt seem right.
I used the A-20 (4x500lb bombs) and i got about 50 points per run.
I don't know if this is a labeling error (like the p51D's bombs for xbox) or if it's a bug of some sort. I tested both the planes - i dropped three bombs from both the arado and the A 20 from 1500 ft at 300 kts, and the arado did its gargantuan damage, while the A-20 barely scratched the target.

Does anybody know why this happens?

Arado has 3 500kg bombs not 500lbs they are twice the size of 500lbs and it kills on on those maps cause the targets are so close together it damages all of them at once

Yep 500kg not lb. That means they are 2.2 times better. One of the few big payload bombers. Also bear in mind that that bigger the bomb the more dmage it will do anyway. An Arado can do more damage with 3 x 500kg than a He111 with 8 x 250kg.
