Alonjar: cgraves67: Does the 30,000lb refer to the static weight of the bomb or the explosive force?I just checked up on 1ft round bars of steel. It's 384.5 lb/ft. At 20ft that's 7,690lb. A 1ft square bar is a little more than 400lb/ft, so it's roughly 8,100 lbs at 20ft. If the 30,000lb spec is the weight of the bomb, it is almost 4 times heavier than a solid chunk of steel of the same size. Not to mention gaps within the bomb assembly that reduce its overall density. This tends to indicate that the 1ft x 20ft dimension is wrong or that the 30,000lb spec refers to the explosive force or that it is made of materials much, much heavier than steel.Id put my money on materials other than steel. The weapon drives itself into the ground with momentum, more weight will help with this. Also, its supposed to explode once it reaches depth... a steel bomb would help hold in some of that explosive force.Beyond that though... the reason we use steel is because it is a nice trade off between weight and strength. There are a lot of other metals out there.

What's your farking problem?Seriously, leave them the fark alone. We can barely hold a country that has minimal infrastructure. Iran would be a disasterThe difference between Iranians and Afghans is that Iranians are capable of not acting like animals.Just wondering, really, but do you have some theory in which a successful military operation against Iran depends on the Iranians acting nicer than other countries that we've attacked or invaded?

mbillips: Fuggin Bizzy: Thirty. Thousand. Pound. Bomb.fark humanity. Goddamn.Eh, if you think of it as 15 tons, or 1/125 of a Hiroshima bomb, it doesn't seem so big. We used to have nuclear artillery shells with WAY more explosive force than that. And depth charges (light fuse and get away fast).

AngryJailhouseFistfark: But this baby, oh no, THIS baby is designed to punch a starter hole, even explode a bit to open it up and get serious penetration, and only then does it unleash the full majesty and fury of the payload. THAT is the genius of this bomb, the ability to maintain integrity as it pounds deep into the loins of our enemy, ramming deep into the interior, before the glorious and inevitable release. Mmmm.

mbillips: AverageAmericanGuy: Note to America and its lapdog Israel and Britain: Dude, seriously. What's your farking problem?Wait, I thought we were Israel's lapdog? Now I'm confused. Who's behind this, U.S. arms manufacturers or the international banking cartel? And whose lapdog is Britain, again?
