The Pentagon announced a 14 tons anti-refuge super bomb could be ready by 2010 and will cost US treasure about 88 million dollars.

It is a 6 meter-device of a project called Massive Artillery and explode only after penetrating over 60 meters in the place of the impact. The Defense Department speak of All Bombs Mother or (Conventional) and argued the missile will be charged with 2,400 kilo of explosives, twice more than previous BLU-109 prototype tested in 2003.

The bomb was designed to be launched from B-52 or B-2 planes but the last ones are not ready for such mission since they do not count with an optimized radars-evasion system, noted sources.
