It appears from accident reports that Boeing’s oversized freighter rival to the Airbus A300 Belgua, the 747-400 Large Cargo Freighter, or Dreamlifter, may have a promising future in the military as a non-precision bomber.

But where is the requirement for such "non-precision bombers" when there are sooo many precision bombers available ?
P.S : The ATS UI has changed so much.

The term "non-precision bomber" in the original post referred to a Boeing 747-400 Large Cargo Freighter, or Dreamlifter that had dropped a fiberglass test cone from it's tail section; the test cone scored a direct hit on a parked car in a shopping center in a Seattle suburb.
So forget about the 747 non-precision bomber - it was a joke

Quick question about the rotary dispensers on the B747. How would the missiles be deployed? IE from front to back or all the bottom ones then all the next to bottom ones etc. If they were deployed from the back dispenser to the front dispenser would the changing CG end up turning the B747 into a lawn dart?
