Hmmmm i wonder how this will figure into the Geneva Convention.... heck you can't use hollow points against troops.. how the hell can we use a "Freaking LA-Zer" cough cough cause I know we don't shoot troops with weapons designated for equipment and hard targets cough

Flying dolphins with Mirror's on their heads will accompany ground troops into battle to avoid such situations. Duh Schmitti

you cant use hollow points because of the massive tissue damage, a jacketed bullet, in theory, goes in the same as it goes out.

Laser does the same, even seals up the hole. Market it as a "less than bloody" weapon

Thats pretty slick. I've seen the ABL on the ground in Everett, my grandma lives down there and you drive right by Boeing Field to get to ger place. The Hague Convention is what banned armies from using hollowpoints, and from what I've read, the U.S. never signed it. We just comply with it to avoid pissing off our NATO allies who signed it (and who use the same standardized ammo we do).

Leave it to the air force to over-complicate something as charming as a flying howitzer !

I never understood why they didn't weaponize bigger aircraft, like the C-141 and the C-5..

Imagine a an AC-5.. probably would have a 155mm howizter inside the plane.

It might finally be large enough to carry enough ammunition..

I think they call them "bombers".
