Gas Bombs refer to the delivery of toxic chemical agents via aircraft, usually bombers. Soon after the widespread deployment of poison gas artillery shells during World War I, chemical munitions intended to be dropped from the air were developed, however their practical use was limited due to the capacity of aircraft of the time, as the majority of gas attacks were delivered in saturation bombardments. Gas bombs saw additional use in conflicts during the interwar years, the Second Sino-Japanese War and in World War II.
The Gas Bomb is a secondary weapon available to the pilots of Ilya-Muromets using the Support Bomber Package. The aircraft carries a maximum of five bombs that can be dropped individually. On impact with the ground, these bombs create a cloud of poison gas with a similar volume and capacity to harm as a hand-thrown Gas Grenade.
