Bombs and other ordnance have always been a weak point in Il2, with a very limited range available and quite often a low historical accuracy. So, here's the (almost) exhaustive US WW2 Air-Ground ordnance Pack: Army and Navy Bombs, Frag and Incendiary Clusters, Daisy Cutters, Pyrotechnics and, though not really an air ground piece of ordnance, Smoke dispensers.
New Fuzes too barometric (aneroid), hydrostatic (depth) and proximity (VT), with an updated arming GUI.
Installation Notes:
1) The best is to keep the original name of these folders as the folder named !!_NewBarometric_HydrostaticFuzes must load before the _armsUS_WW2 folder
Remark: It is advisable to copy the gui.properties file from inside the !!_NewBarometric_HydrostaticFuzes/ gui_additions/i18n folder to the STD/i18n folder (instead of the same name file present there), as some installations of the game seem to load this file only when it is is this folder.
2) Copy the content of the folder named _armsUS_WW2_Planes inside the folder named !_AerialTorpedoesCods. This will allow to update the bomb bay of the B25J with its historical disposition). Although the mod by itself is independent form other mods, the cod files and 3Do fixes in this folder come a s a complement to my previous ordnance mods: Aerial mines and Aerial Torpedoes, that need therefore to be installed for correct full display.
3) This mod appears in 2 versions: one for 4.12, the other for 4.13. Download the version that suits you.
4) What's still lacking in this pack - the guided bombs: BAT, Azon and Razon that need to be rethought of  - their implementation by TD lacks realism, these are guided bombs, not rockets, and the fuel tanks used as fire bombs. This will come soon....
5) The mod includes cod files for "demonstration planes": SBD3 and SBD5, F4U1D, B25J, P47D27 P51DNA
Enjoy!
As Usual:
This package is freeware.
This software may be freely used, copied and distributed with the following restrictions:
1) the present post must be included as a "Readme" text file.
2) DO NOT place these files anywhere that requires a fee for downloading.
3) DO NOT place any of these files in any commercial package or any CD collection without the authors consent.

Awesome! It would be great if we could also write messages on them! With the new ordinance cam from 4.13 it would make great movies. But no idea how difficult that mod would be ... So, I guess a crazy idea from a crazy user lol. Or it isn't?

I forgot to upload this spreadsheet with the characteristics of the fuzes - you'll need it as a reference for best use of this mod:

umm.. :o.....wow, i'm kinda speechless - this looks awesome, mate - thanks for sharing!  ;D
i'm interested to see how this plays out with the other arms loads in the game - should we be expecting some conflicts?
nevertheless, i'm going to try this out first opportunity - which, sadly, is only going to be late on Sunday, as I'm on duty and on a course over the weekend.
hopefully others can provide some feedback in the meanwhile?  8)

Anti-ricochet bombs:
The Parademo bombs were anti-ricochet bombs used successfully in rocky ground areas: Pacific coral atolls, Provence etc..
The M30 spike bombs was an anti-ricochet designed specifically for attacking railway lines and first used successfully as such in Burma.
Daisy Cutters:
The story begins with..the Australian in the Western desert in 1941-42. They successfully used there Extended rods fixed to Pistols No 27 on 250 and 500lb bombs. A highly unsafe device (as the safety of the fuze has to be taken away to install the extension rod, and pilots had therefore to take off with bombs armed), not intended to be an anti-personal weapon but to enable the bombs to explode over the ground instead of burying themselves in the sand.
Next step of the story - the New Zealanders. The RNZAF was under operational and logistic command of the US Navy, and therefore equipped with US Navy bombs and other equipment. Knowing about the Australian experience, they improvised the same device, using tent poles as extension rod, with this time the intention of thus making an efficient anti-infantry weapon, similar to the  efficiency of the Japanese "daisy cutters" (pack of mortar bombs used as air dropped bombs). The efficiency of this improvisation led the navy to devise a real extended fuze, the "Fuze Mk219 with extension rod for daisy cutters" classifying "top secret" so that, except a 1943 publication, this fuze is absent from further "regular classified publications" and photos of bombs with this device were censored  - on US Navy planes, as there are plenty of good photos of Navy bombs with this fuze on RNZAF Corsairs, using them against the Japanese in Bouganville.

The US Army took another approach to the subject and designed a real extension fuze, the M1A1, much safer, that began there a long career with the US Air forces. These fuze extensions could be combined in line to make an extension 3 ft long, 6 ft long etc., although during ww2, only a single instance was generally used.

These devices the previous improvisations such as barbed-wire-wrapped bombs

Then came in 1945 the first proximity fuzes. Their main shortcoming, a long arming delay, imposed by the fact that the US used massive multi layered bombing formations, and an armed proximity fuze does not differentiate between ground, vehicles, or...flying aircraft near by.  Bomb equipped with proximity fuzes were used efficiently against dug-in infantry positions, but also to clear vegetation in jungle areas and to blow out houses roofs in preparation to incendiary bomb attacks.

Update in the first post:
1) Arming time (Minimal release height) of the Proximity fuzes corrected.
2) "Shudder" at the opening of the chutes in the parademo bombs corrected. The chute open smoothly now.
3) pdf file with a table showing Fuzes Names, Type, delay duration/ depth, arming time (minimal release height), instead of the more complex excel file.
4.13 version uploaded too.
