"Why they're doing this I can't figure out since thermobaric Hellfire II's can not only kill by its blast but also by consuming all the oxygen in its kill radius so even if it hits a little of target it will still kill a person by suffocation."

You did not mention a cave or a structure. You just say it will suffocate an individual. Sorry if I misunderstood the thing you did not clarify. Further more. The purpose of the November isn't suffocate at all, its to "Overpressure" the space that they are in, hence why suffocation is the last thing they will doe from. having their organs squished by the over pressure is the initial effect.

[QUOTE=Hooves_mcg;87176]The HELLFIRE R Variant does exactly what you said, However the N does not. Well not in open spaces. The killing mechanism is indeed the over pressure, but no such "suffocation will occur on personnel unless they they are in the effected structure that the Hellfire N explodes. And even in there its less suffocation and more pulling their lungs out of their body through their mouth. I know its gruesome but, that's what happens. Hope that clears it up.[/QUOTE

Obi Wan Kenobi ( waving hand ) you're wrong you don't think Lets comment is wrong... LMFAO But truly I agree that in the open you most likely won't suffocate a person from a thermobaric bomb but I never said it would lol I just said they consume all the air near bye like in a structure or cave.

I agree most squirters are doing just that squirting...blood that is lol as they run away after a Hellfire hit near them. The Army is going to switch to using only the AGM-114R Hellfire II variant which Targets: Bunkers, light vehicles, urban (soft) targets and caves and the Warhead is a : Integrated Blast Frag Sleeve (IBFS) (combine blast fragmentation and fragment dispersion. Why they're doing this I can't figure out since thermobaric Hellfire II's can not only kill by its blast but also by consuming all the oxygen in its kill radius so even if it hits a little of target it will still kill a person by suffocation. At least they picked one wrapped in ball bearing like material so you don't just get hit with a blast you also get hit with hundreds of fragments. It's funny I replied to a comment and said make a missile and add claymore like ball barring's around it to kill people further away since a small steel ball will fly much further then the missiles blast.

Jamieooh - you read my mind I've stated many times that even the power of multiple 2,000 lb bombs some still squirt away if by luck the jdams hit at a spot where some live like the recent 5 jdam video where one squirter wasn't killed. B-52's and the MOAB's would kill any living thing within a 30 or more yard circle, but the MOAB wound kill everything in a circle of hundred yards or more, basically the MOAB could kill every person in a stadium and most if not all of the stadium. Also some people love hellfire missiles but personally I only like hellfire's when they're used on targets that they were made for like penetrating heavy armor and cars I'd say ok if it hits the interior not the engine or trunk. I still don't know why we use hellfire's on individual terrorists walking or caught in a field hiding or preparing an attack when a 30mm cannon is better for that mission unless you're out of ammo then fire away with hellfire's. But why don't they make a missile that isn't for armor like tanks but one that has more explosive and ball bearings like a claymore mine to shred people in every direction or a thermobaric missile that can kill more people than a hellfire.

Awwww! I was actually hoping to see a MOAB used here! Totally agree with jamieooh, this situation needs at least 1 MOAB!

SSgt. Matthew Shilling's unit was ambushed while on patrol. He took point with his boat and began to take heavy enemy fire from all sides, over 100 enemy were involved in the well planned ambush. The boat crashed after several of Shilling's unit were wounded. SSgt. Shilling took control of the unit, rallied them after the boat crashed on the shore and got them into a fighting position and held the enemy at bay. Shilling then directed the counter attack and held off the enemy until the wounded could be evacuated to safety. The enemy ended up fleeing the scene after 22 were killed and over 50 wounded. SFC. Jefferson Pridgen and Sgt. David Preen III took part in an offesive operation. Their convoy came under attack from both sides of the street they were on. One of the Iraqi soldeirs in the convoy was wounded and in the line of heavy fire and trapped. Pridgen and Preen exited their armored vehicle and dragged the soldier to a safe cover position, disregarding the enemy fire. While rendering aid to the wounded soldier, 3 enemy insurgents ran at them trying to attack the cover position. Sfc. Pridgen eliminated the threat and they were able to render aid to the soldier. The convoy eventually won the battle and the soldier was evacuated.
