    for a bomb so retarded it cant reach the target on its own, it needs to be dropped with a parachute roughly over the target area

    Kamakiri

    And despite all that it will still miss the target.

    With a big enough bomb, you only need to be roughly over the target area.

    Obviously fun to make fun of, but what is the real use of such a device?

    In other words, I’m assuming this is a real product with unintentional humor, perhaps because of poor communication/translation. But what is it really and what is its’ purpose?

    Retarded bombs are usually used during low altitude drops or drops where the aircraft itself could be in danger from the bomb’s blast. The parachute retards the fall so the aircraft can reach a safer distance.

    it makes sense for something as evil as the russian Tsar bomb, but what else has power that needs to be parachuted in?

    what WhiskeyTango said is the truth.

    since the days of the V2 i don’t see the need to parachute a bomb in. Just fire from a safe distance.
