Quite a few lives lost during its development and deployment too, for what I would call negligible effect. A shame really.
Nice idea but a dam is one real tough nut to crack by design. Even when at the time the bouncing bomb was way ahead, technologically speaking.
Would be a totally mad thing to do nowadays with the civilian impact definitely outweighing its military impact. But it would be interesting to see
given the need in the modern era on how that would be developed and deployed now. Although i would estimate that there are various weapons that would
destroy the dam in other ways It would be interesting to see it done using the same technique i.e. sinking the bomb to the base to take advantage of
Lets call it a physics experiment
Damn where are the Mythbusters when you need them
that sort of thing would be right up their alleyway
