They supposedly made about 15 of them.

Whatever they said was the cost is probably a lie either way.

I believe there is a video of it. It is the most boring video you could possibly imagine, blowing up some rocks and soil - is astoundingly anti-climactic.

Not to sound too much like a terrorist but: This is why evil people who blow up stuff is way more media friendly. They actually blow up stuff that people recognize like landmarks that have been standing for centuries.

I mean comeon already, just drop the MOAB on Assads palace, lol.

Its a show of force and destruction of ISIS fortifications. I dont know why everyone is up in arms about it - its in the middle of nowhere with very little civilian collateral damage. The size of the bomb was needed to have the power to destroy the tunnels. I see no issues with this.

The MOAB is not a fortofication tunnel bomb. The MOP is.

The moab is mainly for surface or very near surface, and has a blast area 0f 8km2. Only 36 dead.

The only point of the bomb was to announce, pussy Obama is gone, we will fuck you up if you keep fucking with us.

It's designed to crush underground tunnels and bunkers through the massive overpressure that is generated upon detonation.

This coming from the guy who said it cost $312mil

In defense of Trump: If I ever got into power, one of the first things I would do is drop a bomb.

Yup.

Just to make sure it isn't made of cottage cheese. I mean, if you are inheriting a horse that you are charged with running you at least have to run it around to track once to see if it can make it.

Just like if I inherited a Space Shuttle, I'd fly it to the moon at least once to see if it can.... Whoops.

There are a lot of lies out there, perpetuated within and without.

Check it out. All true.

This was guaranteed an announcement, and nothing else. People interviewed in the area thought the world was ending. Struck the fear of Allah into them.

Big deal I made a mistake. That was development cost.

It's not really a show of force to the DPRK, as the delivery method is a special operations MC130 Transport, which would be very unlikely used to deliver a strike vs the NKs.


MOABs primary mission is to destroy soft to medium rated targets on the surface, or just below the surface. It's not a dedicated armored underground bunker/tunnel buster, not like the MOP penetrators, or the previous GBU 28 bombs made out of old arty barrels which will punch through to great depth prior to detonating. In fact, it's possible that many of those killed were due to suffocation, as the weapon consumes all the local oxygen, sucks it right out of the caverns/tunnels, and it takes a while for it to return.
