    According to a national geographic video of the MOAB, it has to be carried in a B-52 bomber, because it weighs approx. 22 tons.

    Your inability to achieve accuracy never ceases to amaze me.

    Your info is doubly wrong... it weighs closer to 21000 lbs, not 22 tons and can only be dropped by a C-130 or theoretically a similarly configured cargo craft. (1) (2) (3) (4)

    Now if Russia does not have this delivery mechanism, how was this test conducted? I mean it is delivered in the same way that MOAB is delivered, namely para-shoot it from a B-52 bomber, only the Russians have their own version of B-52 bombers.

    I said they don't have a 'effective delivery mechanism', ie a fast and effective way to drop it on the enemy without being adequately detected and prevented through either speed, stealth or defense (through onboard counter-measures or escort craft).

    The Russians don't spend money on useless technology, especially in the military sector.

    The sole reason FOAB exists is to try to one up the US and say “see, we can do something militarily/technically better than you”... something that has gone on since the start of the cold war and never truly ended... it’s just been rather hard for the Russians to be able to even compete until relatively recently.

    Secondly, I am not anti-American. I am anti-bush. That is a big difference. I like the American people, I just don't like the administration nor the foreign policy.

    Your general anti-American and pro-terrorist attitude and comments says otherwise.

    You need to change your perception of me, to a person who likes America, and not Bush's America.

    My perception is based on your comments, assuming you were to stop supporting terrorists and making death and legal threats against me you might have a chance... but given your propensity for both as well as lack of grasp of reality... you’ve got little chance.
