That is an awful lot of hate and discontent to drop on a single target.

That's the because the targets are buried very deeply and hatefully.  There won't be much discontent . . .

I'd say that the Iranian Nuclear Program has just met its worst fear.  Hopefully, someone (us or Israel) will use it before the Iranians get a working, deliverable warhead.  Otherwise, Israel will be toast.  Literally.

Yeah, if you drop one of those from about 40,000 feet or so you should be able to get some real good penetration! ;)

Seems a little heavy to carry in the Cessnas. We may need to use the GA-8s.

OK we use the 37000 pounder on the newly found secret facility at Qom Iran... Qom Iran is one of the most earthquake prone, geologically unstable places in the World. Penetrate this blunder bust on the seismic fault line.

The Iranians seem to be making things convenient for the IAF.

Maybe we should invest in some large twins...

I wonder what a 30,000lb bomb would do to a submarine?  Or the ocean....   :angel:

It's not a question of how they grip it, it's a simple question of weight ratios!  A 2 ton aircraft could not carry a 15 ton bomb.   In order to maintain air-speed velocity...

People, people of the logical argument... the bumble bee is not supposed to fly due to the size of the body versus the lift of the wings. So if we want to have this bomb in CAP...

I suggest we ditch the Cessnas and start flying "Bees."

First I'd like to try some Bees-52s.
