I dont know if anyone watched it, but i was doing a bit of channel surfing and came a across a program on the US Airforce, anyway the airforce were complaining that they had no proper weapon of destroying the caves in Afgan, then they started the worlds first thermobarric bomb. Now this is the best bit, from the point of planning to the point of being used in operational zones it took a staggering 74 days, Yes 74 days to develope a weapon and to get it out. What struck about there weapon engineers were their passion of developing the bombs, they truely thought that they were doing their bit on the fight on terror. Now it got me thinking what would happened if that was the case over here, no doubt we will have to clear it with the powers that be, then test, test some more and a little more testing and by the time it actually gets to be used in a operational zone, no doubt the war zone would change. I know the Americains aint .......well not the best at things but at least they have there heads screwed on and getting the kit that their military need. Whats your thoughts on the American military hardware.???
