We have two opposing forces: the Democrats and the Imperialists.
Each one can field an armada of ships numbering millions in their fleets, supported by trillions- to a quadrillion person strong super supply lines just to support the war effort, both in space and land. Heck, they even have mobile fortress worlds (Planetoids) as their fleet headquarters.
You, an aspiring young noble from the Imperial faction, want to be in command of a fleet of these mighty warships and lay waste to their planets. However, your enemies also have mighty warships and want to lay waste to your planets.
With your resources, manufacturing capability and support capability, your fleet is capped at 1350 ships. With this pitiful amount, you won't get anywhere against the enemy's millions stronger individual fleets.
Neither the Democrats nor the Imperialists have any knowledge of carrier doctrines. Doctrines that you discovered from the ancient libraries of Earth... You have continued developing this idea and technology further. Bombers and fighter bombers will be unmanned and have active cloaking technology to ensure you deliver your bombs and get out relatively unscathed.
However, you don't have any idea what kind of bomb would ensure maximum damage while ensuring that you don't suffer any consequences.
You'll be bombing the following types of targets. Note that the armor will be as strong as diamond but twice denser than lead. They don't have energy shielding. "Shields are for cowards," so they say.
All ships are big guns except corvettes. They don't have AA as they didn't know that space shuttles can be used to bomb them
- Super Dreadnoughts (28 km long, 14 km wide, 8 km depth) 14 meters of armor
- Dreadnoughts (17 km long 6 km width 4km depth) 10 meters of armor
- Super battleships (14 km long 7 km width 3km depth) 8 meters of armor
- Battleships (12 km long 5km width 3km depth) 7 meters of armor
- Capital cruisers (10 km long 3.5km width 2.5km depth) 6 meters of armor
- Heavy Cruisers (7 km long 4km width 2km depth) 4 meters of armor
- Cruiser (5 km long 2.5km width, 900m depth) 2 meters of armor
Anything below 5 km is too little for your taste and conventional anti ship missiles launched from several hundred bombers can kill them.
The question is: what kind of bomb can you use against these capitals ships to take them down with the least amount of bombs?
Your 1350 space ships can support 25,000 bombers at any moment. 150 of those ships are 5 km long carriers holding 170 bombers each. A self-evolving AI is in command of the bomber wings from the carrier. Command and control is taken care of with FTL Communication arrays onboard all bombers. The covert communication array is only good within 5 light years away so the carrier won't be too far from the bombers.

I need a bomb(Theoretical or proven) that can vaporize/destroy capital ships shielded or w.out shield with least possible amount of bombs.
