I'm taking off Thursday for Christmas so we'll be back next Monday.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Somewhat reminiscent of Dr Strangelove's Major Kong Rides the Bomb. If you've never seen the movie it's a classic must-see.

Frame 2 - This is a "pop-up" low altitude bombing maneuver developed by cold war era pilots to deliver tactical nukes. It's described as pitching an underhand softball.

ooo that was a very nicely rendered blast!

Poor horses, even in death, they cant catch a break!

The mountains may shield them from some of the shock wave however the results of our girls actions will be long remembered. Please let there be one active surface to air defense module on full auto with its IFF defective.

She can't get shot down yet, she still has all those other bombs left. Think of how much fun she can have with those.

the rock might even block the majority of the radiation, depending on the height of the burst, but which way is the fallout going to spread ? some will still go in their direction. Bidi on the other hand will likely glow in the dark now.

I wonder if radiation can cause some cool hallucinations? heheh

You have to assume. since the government planned to use the jets to deliver the tactical nukes that they are equipped with sufficient escape velocity to avoid the impact of the bomb and its resultant fallout. Otherwise, you end up with one plane/pilot per sortie.

Actually recommend height for that maneuver is 60K attack speed at FMP on the toss of flip and run. With parachute deploy pilot has about 8 minutes for ground detonation depending on atmospheric conditions, i.e. wind speed, temperature and humidity along with number of feet above or below sea level the target is. As low as she apparently deployed the weapon, she's in for one hell of a ride on the shock wave the EMP from the blast should fry her instruments. Her best bet is jettison fuel and look for a long deep snow mass at ground level, count on the snow to keep remaining fuel from reaching combustion point immediately.

also depends on the aircraft. If the avionics have been hardened against EMP [theres ways of doing that that don't involve faraday cages]. Also, ground burst EMP is waaaay less...energetic than air burst or high altitude airburst, especially when your yield is in the sub kiloton to low kiloton range.

also, as low as she is, in mountainous terrain, she might have gotten over the "horizon" in time, so that the mountains, blocked much of the radiation, emp [which is radiation], and blast. Same principle as the old Davy Crockett. Blast radius was 5 miles, launch radius was 4. Tactic was to shoot from a ridge line and then get your ass behind the ridge line before it went off.

Cold war era pilots used to practice low altitude deliveries to avoid the target's defenses, and low altitude escape to avoid the effects of the explosion. A ground level explosion typical of tactical nukes forced most of the shock wave and EMP up into the atmosphere so anything above tree top level and you're toast. LABS (Low Altitude Bombing System)

Well well well done horse & Demon Bidi

I'm pretty sure you can't kill a demon so we probably haven't seen the last of her yet.

I wonder what a nuked horse burger tastes like? Fantastic pages, by the way!
DizzasterJuice 27th Dec 2014, 7:14 PM edit delete reply
It tastes like Mighty Dog Dog Food! heheh

Let's hope that satisfies her big boom craving for a while :D

Let's see, if is like the original Mk-39, yeah 3.8 megatons should do it. :)
DizzasterJuice 27th Dec 2014, 7:15 PM edit delete reply
Hard to top that one unless she happens to find an ICBM silo somewhere. =)
Tiger Tomcat 23rd Dec 2014, 10:06 PM edit delete reply
If it has the same yield as the original Mk-39, yeah 3.8 megatons should do it. :)

Who new the post-apocalypse could be so much fun.
