It eventually reached 22,000 lb (a single Grand Slam bomb) with special modifications to strengthen the fusilage and removal of the bomb bay doors.
Of course this all depended on the distance to the target, bomb load, etc. It carried the same armament as the Lancaster I. Due to it's abbreviated production span, the Mark II carried up to 14,017 lb (6,350 kg) of bombs in a wide mixture, it never carried the 22,000 lb.
With a typical bomb load, it reached a maximum speed of 286 mph (462 km/h), an ceiling of 24,671 ft (7,500 m) and a range of 2,527 miles (4,070 km).

The concrete bombs come in various sizes (500, 1,000 and 2,000 pounds), but the new 500 pound JDAM has become a favorite when a concrete version is required.
The U.S. Air Force wants to capitalize on the supercruise capability of the F-22, and is also testing the use of electronic reconnaissance sensors at supercruise speeds.

The two World War II bombs which best fit the description of bunker busters are the Tallboy bomb 12,000 lb (5,400 kg) MC and the Grand Slam bomb 22,000 (10,000 kg) MC both designed by Barnes Wallis for the RAF.
Bombs which can penetrate reinforced concrete of a blockhouse are also referred to as bunker busters.
The Tallboy and Grand Slam bombs had a thick skin to withstand the initial impact of hitting hardened targets and were therefore classified as Medium Capacity (MC) bombs.

 Nuclear weapon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By modern standards, the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 may perhaps be considered tactical weapons (with yields between 13 and 22 kilotons (54 to 92 TJ)), although modern tactical weapons are considerably lighter and more compact.
Gravity bombs are designed to be dropped from planes, which requires that the weapon can withstand vibrations and changes in air temperature and pressure during the course of a flight.
Small, two-man portable tactical weapons (erroneously referred to as suitcase bombs), such as the Special Atomic Demolition Munition, have been developed, although the difficulty of balancing yield and portability limits their military utility.

 B28 nuclear bomb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The B28 had a diameter of about 22 in (28 cm), with a length varying between 96 in (2.44 m) and 170 in (4.32 m) and weight of 1,700 lb (771 kg) to 2,320 lb (1,053 kg), depending on version.
The B28 (originally Mk 28) was a thermonuclear bomb carried by U.S. tactical fighter bombers and bomber aircraft.
The B28 should not be confused with the XB-28 Dragon, a prototype high-altitude version of the World War II-vintage B-25 Mitchell light bomber.

 Bombs Weapons Rockets Aircraft Ordnance
The Grand Slam (Earthquake) bomb was of the same design as the Tallboy but larger and heavier weighing 22,000 lb (9972 kg.) The Grand Slam was first used on March 14, 1945 when a force of Lancaster bombers led by Royal Air Force Squadron Leader C.C. Calder attacked the Bielefeld railway viaduct destroying two spans.
The bomb body varies in size, of course, and varies in structure depending on whether the bomb is a GP bomb, penetrating bomb, cluster bomb, and so on.
For example, a bomb fuzed to act as a mine may also have a time fuze so that it will self-destruct after a period of time, either to harass an enemy, or to prevent it from being a hazard to advancing friendly forces.

 Backgrounder: Cluster Bombs in Afghanistan (Human Rights Watch October 2001)
United Nations officials have stated that on October 22 U.S. cluster bomb submunitions landed on the village of Shaker Qala, near the city of Herat in western Afghanistan, killing nine civilians and injuring fourteen.
Cluster bombs are usually used in very large numbers and have a high initial failure rate which results in numerous explosive "duds" that pose the same post-conflict problem as antipersonnel landmines.
Air-delivered cluster bombs are composed of a large dispenser with attached fins (called the tactical munitions dispenser, or TMD, in the newest systems); fuzes and electronic devices to control, spin, and direct the weapon during fall; and submunitions or bomblets.

The 22,000lb bomb, was designed to go supersonic when dropped, causing it to embed itself up to 100 ft deep in the ground and cause a devastating earthquake-like shudder.
The bomb comes to the museum minus explosive and tail section, but it is still 14 feet long and weights 8.5 tons.
This lead to the generic term Earthquake Bomb which also applied to the smaller Tallboy bomb, an example of which the museum already possesses, along with the Upkeep bomb.

A team of federal, state, county and city officials are investigating the three pipe bombs left on three levels of the ramp on Nov. 22, 23 and Dec. 24.
Although Wednesday's incidents appeared to be unrelated to three pipe bombs left in a county-owned ramp Downtown in November and December, it's clear that the bombs have city officials and residents afraid to take chances.
