I have experienced a similar problem in the Instant Action Spring mission for A10C after upgrading to World 1.5. On the second target, I used to be able to destroy the entire squadron with a single GBU-38, but now it just knocks out a single truck, kills a couple of soldiers, and the second truck, just a few feet away drives off to take a picnic. It is as if only a hand grenade was dropped.

After posting the problem on the DCS forum, someone said that ED has plans to rework ordinance explosive effects, but as to when that happens, who knows? I wish more people would take notice and make noise to ED about it. I didn't buy this sim to just blow spitballs.

The GBU-10 shouldn't be able to destroy a hardened bunker. In DCS, like all weapons, they are contact fused not delay fused. Nor are they penetration warheads that would be needed to punch through the bunker.

Is it the Mk84/BLU-117 model(s) or the BLU-109 model(s)?

Mk84.

DCS doesn't have the BLU-109 warhead, apart from in the GBU-31v3.
