    I doubt that, but i would hope so. Would surely send the biggest message possible to anyone trying to play mercenary for the USrael mafia and the Mafia itself aswell.

    All Russia needs is to locate a high-value target of sufficient size and significance, and whose destruction with a SERIOUSLY OVERSIZED blast will deliver a proportionally oversized PR payload Very Happy   The sight of a Tu-160 turning the false Caliph al-Bahgdadis palace into a heap of smoldering concrete will really spoil the day of his head-chopping takfiri shit-bags.. and their backers in Riyadh and Washington. russia

    I thought of something like Clausewitz said, to direct your enemies movements so you can act accordingly with precision.

    Create a situation for all terrorists so they have only one way to concentrate, be it by a tactical retreat from SAA so the terrorists see it as some gain and are pulking in that retreated area and than FOAB the US paychecks out of them or bomb them so they retreat only in one direction and FOAB them back to the oval office. I hope that will be such a blow to their entire moral that those terrorists will flee back to Saudi crap of Arabia, Qatar, turkey, Kuwait and all the other crap controlled regimes and US puppets.

    Wonder if they will find a test target for FOAB?

    Nobody knows even the figures of that are quite secretive. The problem is needs to be delivered but should be much cheaper than any iskander with thermobaric warhead.

    Thanks, I assumed it was something like that.

    Given the gigantic PR war Russia is waging, I'd say if the FOAB is in deployable numbers then we'll see it used. Fingers crossed, but boy would it be a sight. Would be a fantastic demo of Russia's thermobaric prowess as well.
