What's the radiation level of depleted Uranium? I understand they use that metal because of its mass. However, I assume that we wouldn't use something extremely toxic to our own troops, unless those troops are wearing personal protection equipment suitable for a radiological environment.
I was also under the impression that the Air Force only used those types of munitions against hard targets. Don't they use another type of ammo when they go after soft targets?
