Anytime, Hena !  This may sound "blood thirsty", but I like to see the BDA of a 30,000 lber MOAB or 2, used in the Northwestern Frontier.  And TRC, I agree either the   Orbital Template or 6 of the standard templates, like used for the old AT1 Plasma Missile.

Wasn't it dropped in Iraq? Otherwise they used FAE's (or the variant for caves, forget what it was) in Afghanistan.

Remember an interview on Al Jazeera with a bunch of retreating Taliban saying their leaders were wrong to fight America, as weapons like that could only made come from God!

I suspect this has now been modified as to coming from the devil. I attribute it to shell shock.

Anyway nasty stuff regardless. I had a mate in the TA medical bunch who ended up doing some of the clean up on the main highway from Kuwait to Iraq after two f-15's blocked it off in a bombing run, then a short while later after the traffic had built up, the yanks came back and dropped a FAE on it. He said they found people melted into the dashboards of the cars they were in. Still has nightmares now.

MOAB is nothing against FOAB (guess what this means :;): )

Else you could mean MOP (Massive Ordnance penentrator) or his smaller cousin the GBU-28 (if the information is right. Not sure about this in this times)

Nasty, indeed.

But back to topic. Stats seem fine. give her the big template and make it never official rule.

Too late Soren, anything discussed on this forum for friendly games automatically becomes tournament-legal too.

How about the Vigilant providing an extra reroll or a +1 to hit or something like that?  Just throwing it out there.

And on a similar note the Arvus Lighters could still be part of an Epic game if the goal is just to get the troops to a point further up on the board.  Great for objective grabs and such.

Yes, I think I can come up with something for the B-26 Vigilant for our game board.  And we plan on using the Arvus as a light troop transport.  I'm not sure if a MOAB was ever use in actual operations ...yet ...   (I can go off topic - I started the thread ! :D )   I'm sorry to hear about your friend's nightmares TRC ... No matter how bad warfare gets we still do it ...

I think you're right. I'm pretty sure the MOAB hasn't been used yet. Daisy Cutter, yes; MOAB, no.
