re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]The Yemen op is the one that has me a bit confused.[/quote] I think that is a single 2,000 lb JDAM with an impact (also known as instantaneous) fuze setting. I was trying to compare its fireball and blast radius to the video I posted. In that video, there are five separate strikes. The ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]So, you're saying it was 2 bombs. If not that's a classic secondary.[/quote] Different posts. The two bombs I was referring to was in the second set of explosions in the video I posted. You can clearly see two different explosions in that group. The one I was saying was not a secondary ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]Is that fuel air effect or a secondary? I think it's a secondary.[/quote] I would be willing to bet it is neither. It is an impact fuzed 2,000 lb JDAM. You can tell the bigger explosion is closer than the first, so not a secondary. ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]tke857[/quote] Roll your eyes if you want. Look at the second explosion in this video: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHGwPmsJMF8)]JDAM explosions[/link] A lot of those are detonating after at least a 5ms delay, hence all the dirt and less smoke/fire. Putting a slight delay ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]another angle[/quote] Looks like different events. In the second one you can see that there's already been one explosion before the second one which causes the big fireball. In the first video, there's no other explosion. Even still, that's really not that huge of a blast radius or f...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]quote: They are designed to be dropped on targets by the Boeing-made B-52 Stratofortress long-range bomber or Northrop Grumman Corp.'s B-2 stealth bomber. I'm confused. The CNN article says that this was dropped from an MC-130. I also remember the video of the test back in the early 2000s w...

[quote]EOD guy[/quote] [quote]finding the right plane big enough to carry it that could also get far enough away from the blast after drop.[/quote] The EOD guy doesn't know what he's talking about. The MOAB is dropped by a C-130, which is far from fast. ...

Here's a couple low and close passes of a B-52 followed by a low B-52 pass near a beach. All from the '80's. Anybody attempting this kind of stuff now days would be crucified. [img]http://www.nycaviation.com/newspage/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/b52-carrier-flyby-630-620x413.jpg[/img] [img]htt...

re: First F-35 Thread of 2017 - FlyingTiger06
I'm not going to try to go through and quote every thing I'm responding to, but here are several points where some of you have missed the mark in your criticism of the F-35 and other incorrect statements in this thread. 1. The F-35 and F-22 have much different missions, so producing more F-22s is...

re: Evan Johnson - Loranger RB - FlyingTiger06
Seems like he would just be a good ATH to round out a class. Perhaps play some DB and special teams. Not saying he should be considered a headline recruit. ...

Evan Johnson - Loranger RB - FlyingTiger06
Haven't heard much about this kid, but noticed he made All-State in Class 4A as a RB this year after making that list as a DB last year. Sounds like a tremendous athlete despite his 5'7" 185 lb frame. Anybody got insight on this kid?...
