So, The 500lb x2 bombs on the Typhoon cost 60,000 credits, according to the tooltip... and the rockets are 96k.


While the actual cost seems to be closer to 12k to rearm the rockets... it is worth noting that RP-3 GP x8 ontop of being 50% more potent, are also 50% less credits to rearm.


Likewise, while I'm not sure of the -actual- cost on the 500lb x2 vs it's 60,000 tooltip... it is again worth noting, that 1000lb x2 is 3600 credits.


This trend continues through all the new planes, afaik... except that it gets progressively worse as you go up tiers. 120k bombs, 160k rockets, on the Sea Hawk


It's like the design team has no idea what they are doing...

How could you possibly think they don't know what they're doing?

I've contacted the responsible team for the explanation of the situation. You are absolutely correct saying that this situation is common for the new aircraft.

Before the update 2.0.5 the price of bombs and rockets was charged every battle thus it could not be comparable with other modules at the corresponding Tier. Now the price for bombs and rockets is charged only once, when you buy and mount them, and is not charged after every battle. So the price was reconsidered for the new planes to correspond to the other modules of the given Tier. Next patches will bring these changes to other aircraft in the game.
