fusillade762: Floating silently in the Gulf of Mexico on September 4, the boat looked far from threatening. But metres away, a B1 was creeping into the air, armed with a laser-guided GBU-10.I know they said it was a toy boat, but what kind of scale are we talking about here?
Aquapope: Hell, the boat's pretty little. Prolly get taken by some of them pirate types, y'know?
vrax: We've been able to get amazing high speed shots for a long time now: http://www.damninteresting.com/rapatronic-nuclear-photographs/
JayCab: Hell, a non-explosive kinetic device dropped from any height would just punch a hole in the bottom of the boat.
Bendal: I would have expected a 2000# bomb to have a larger explosion; it looked to me like that was a dummy bomb and just the impact destroyed the boat.
