A ground-attack aircraft flies in and drops cluster munitions over a medium-sized target area. Any ground units in the area will be at least seriously damaged.
A single bomber flies in over the target area and unleashes dozens of high-yield gravity bombs, creating a trail of destruction several hundred meters long.
An SU-25 aircraft flies by and drops thermobaric munitions that create a vapor cloud of highly explosive fuel which then ignites, creating a massive blast and a large smoke cloud. While extremely effective at clearing forests and destroying infantry and weaker ground vehicles, its powerful shockwave is less effective against larger buildings and heavily armored units.
