"This is a drop-type bomb. An aircraft needs to have the special launcher in order to use this."
Harry's description of this weapon in the shop.

The Guided Hand Throw Bomb is a unique special weapon in Airforce Delta Strike which can only be used by the TwinBee. It is a unique guided bomb-type weapon with several interesting properties that make it better than standard bombs. Upon selecting the weapon, a pip will appear on the ground, indicating an estimate of where the bomb will land. Unlike other bomb-type special weapons, however, when an enemy is in lock-on range, the pip will target the enemy and turn red, locking onto them like a missile lock.

Uses

The GHTB is a special bomb-type weapon that has the unique property of having much more free aiming than normal bombs; normally, standard bombs require the plane to be angled properly to deploy them, otherwise they will not launch. This issue is not present with the GHTB; they can be thrown at any angle. In addition, GHTBs are thrown instead of simply dropped forward, which gives them more horizontal distance. This lets them have the possibility of actually being used on aircraft, though of course this still requires an absurd level of aim and skill. Lastly, you get a metric shit ton of them, getting 999, the upper ammo cap. They are also guided and have the same good splash damage as the Large Guided Bomb.

Pros

  • Great at anti ground operations
  • Splash damage can damage and destroy multiple enemies
  • Weapon is a guided bomb; this will always get a x3 cash bonus upon a kill, combined with locking on
  • Deals heavy damage to ground targets
  • Free-aim release allows for any angle of attack instead of the limited attack of normal bomb weapons
  • Hilariously high amount of ammo, 999 shots

Cons

  • Very difficult to use on air targets, unless you line things up perfectly, which is nigh-impossible on mobile targets
  • Weapon cannot adjust aim in mid flight; if fired at a moving target, it is possible for the weapon to miss

Trivia

  • This weapon has the highest ammo count of all special weapons in Strike.
