I posted this because of the tonnage they referenced. They were trying to make it a Trump hit piece suggesting that he dropped a weapon that was almost as big as Hiroshima.
Except...Hiroshima was 15 KILOtons, compared to the MOAB's 11 tons.

Funnily enough, the US was afraid to employ them in West Germany because they were such a great weapons platform they were afraid that they'd be too obvious a choice to use if the Soviet Union invaded. Which in turn, would escalate the war to a nuclear war. So they were never employed them on the front lines and it was only in-service in Germany for 6 years.
[/quote]so that picture is wrong? it says 15 tons and 11 tons[/quote]Yup, 15 KiloTons vs 11 Tons or 0.11 KiloTons
