A Corpmate told me recently, he was killed by one bomb; sitting still near a jump bridge with a cloaked CovOps.
As far as I know a frig cannot be killed by one bomb if not MWDing because of it´s low sig-radius. A bombs basedamage is 6.400, its explosionradius is 400 m (area of effekt 15km). Anything within 15km of explosion will receive some dmg calculated similar to misseldamage (not counting speed) So a bomb should do about 10% of the basedamage to a ship with sigradius 40m. include the resist of the CovOps one bomb shouldnt instapop it. I know that there are already some more or less old discussions; but with contradictory statements. Can someone confirm?

The damage formula for bombs is:
Damage = Bomb Damage x min ( (ship sig / bomb explosion radius) , 1)
A bomb launched with lvl 5 CovOps skill does 8000 damage (6400 is the base damage). This means that one bomb deals 1000 damage to a ship with signature radius 50 (Helios). This should not be enough to kill it unless it is damaged or MWDing.
