    Stop it mad i'm still aroused by the sd1 pics you posted i cant cope .

    Do the fins off these bombs you find perish because they are thinner metal.

    Hi DAZ,

    No the Tail breaks off on impact or when the bom travels under ground.
    On the 500 Lb i posted the tail is on top of the bomb still.

    Cheers Mad. B)

    I would def say that fins rot quickly.i also would have thought they would be ripped off on impact.

    oops!,looks like me and mad posted at the same time!:P
    similar conclusions though..
