Military aircraft routinely drop 500 pound bombs and even 1,000 pound bombs. Imagine a 30,000 pound bomb!
The Air Force’s deep-earth “bunker-buster” weapon is one step closer to reality, now that engineers have tested modifications to the B-2 bomber to carry two of the 30,000-pound bombs, according to a Stars & Stripes article. The Pentagon has asked Congress for nearly $88 million to fund the development of the MOP (Massive Ordnance Penetrator) in fiscal 2008. The MOP is 9,000 pounds heavier than the Air Force's MOAB (Mother of All Bombs). Official USAF Photo
