I know I know, heard it all before, another Iran thread.
But the citing of the extra funding request and the attempts to accelerate the integration of the bomb actually make this piece from ABC quite
The comptroller said the Pentagon planned to spend $19.1 million to procure four of the bombs, $28.3 million to accelerate the bomb's
"development and testing", and $21 million to accelerate the integration of the bomb onto B-2 stealth bombers.
(Sorry Mods for the need to quote more!)
An 'Urgent operational Need'.
OK, so where in the world would the US need a bunker penetrating to 200 feet bomb? Taliban, no, Iraqi insurgents, no.
Just one, maybe two places guys, Irani Nuclear facilities and possibly Korean facilities as well.
The request was quietly approved. On Friday, McDonnell Douglas was awarded a $51.9 million contract to provide "Massive Penetrator Ordnance
Integration" on B-2 aircraft.
Hold onto your hats!
