Yea, well some numbers would be cool. Like dispersion of bombs used by Su-24M2 vs Su-24 etc. I found some info about them being almost as precise as guided ammo(I dont think thats really possible), another are talking about dispersion of 20m+-, but without any real source etc.

I would look for them. Short story - under certain conditions dumb bomb usage was stated to be on par with PGMs.

What you have to remember is that:
- dumb bomb accuracy is dependent on the flight and enviromental parameters.
- there are different ways to measure accuracy.
- "smart" PGMs may have different CEP classes, for example optical seaker would give you greater accuracy than an inertial or satnav assisted inertial navigation package.

"There's no reason to target a hospital. We provided [the coalition] with all of our GPS co-ordinates about two weeks ago," he added.

Well, it looks like Coalition joins in the US's and Assad's fun of bombing doctors.

It hasn't happened, that is the MSF hasn't been hit by an airstrike before. They usually suffer from ground based attacks. Also this is the Saudi led coalition where they are coalition-ed mostly because they hate Iran more than each other. It's a weird place. Bloody, inhumane and weird.

got the feeling you might be seeing what happens when Mike and I post drunk as fuck. :mrgreen:


I think I'll still be somewhat functional :lol:


Oh ho ho ho ho hhhhoooo!! You think that, when I have to buy the booze, you are going to escape this with your facilities more intact than mine? Son, CLEARLY you do not understand the gravity of the situation you have found yourself in. When you awake the next day, your face will be graphically drawn on with Magic Marker, be dressed up in something shameful, and discover that social media is going ballistic from the pics of you posted during your drunken shenanigans.

Don't worry, someday you'll look back on it and laugh... someday. :mrgreen:

I think it's time we pull the out the George Carlin Jar if we're going to discuss such ambiguities.


I'll drop a 20 to cover the initial salvos.
