In Response To: there's a Durandal bomb (ukimalefu)

: I didn't know this

: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matra_Durandal

: "Named for a mythical medieval French sword, the Durandal is an
: anti-runway penetration bomb developed by the French company Matra (now
: MBDA), designed to destroy airport and airfield runways and exported to a
: number of countries worldwide. As a simple crater in a runway could be
: just filled in, the Durandal deliberately utilizes two explosions in order
: to displace the concrete slabs of a runway, damage that is far harder to
: repair."

I think something about this is mentioned somewhere on the MSP, probably on the FAPTA Durandal page.
