Default Question on heavy bomber bombloads

I'm working on a complete mod of my own, and I've been wondering; what should I use for the heavy bombers' bombloads?

Their long-range strategic bombardment bombload, or their short range maximum load bombload, seeing if they were being used as a tactical weapon on the battlefield, they wouldn't fly that far?

Are they dramatically different in most cases? I would think that it would only be different in this case with strike bombers (light and medium bomber types) and heavy bombers really have a number of standard loads that you can just choose from. I might be wrong, but I thought that at least with regards to US heavy bombers the loads were pretty well defined by the bomb bay dimensions, not the maximum take-off weight.

As it is your OOB/mod, then you decide, as you are the designer.

Cheers

Look at the historical use and go from there. No point in having Lancasters with loads for bouncing bombs, incendiaries or Grand Slam. Though the Grand Slam would make an interesting bunker buster. You may want to allow for a couple of loads - one long range one short - this is probably more of a fighter bomber thing though.

How far are they going to have to travel? You may want several bomb loadouts to reflect the location of the bombers' home airfields.

Pointless trivia really.

Bombers can be assumed to be based near enough to the front to carry standard loads. They are not travelling to Berlin from Cambridgeshire, unless you design a scenario like that, and then you can edit the loads in the scenario editor yourself if needed.
