If I may,
As I see it, the main difference between old bombs of the same size is
1)New explosives are much more potent than they were in WW2
2) The bombs you mention were designed to destroy "surface" targets.
3) This weapon is designed to penetrate a hardened underground bunker, hence the common name, bunker-busters
