Russia's notoriously harsh winters often leave her many rivers blocked with ice until the spring thaw. This winter an ice dam formed along the Sukhona River. According to RT, the dam caused the river to overflow its banks, endangering 4,500 people living nearby.

Meh....the Corp drops dynamite or other charges from  helos here every few years to break up ice dams.  Kind of boring to see.  Now use a F/A 18 to do it and it might be more of a crowd pleaser.

Seems like a setup for a Yakov Smirnoff joke.

retarded is not the preferred nomenclature.  They are special bombs.

I see that as excellent bombing training and practice.  Not only serves a purpose in opening a river but allows pilots to gain expertise in actual bombing runs.

We should do similar things.

I was expecting to see a Bear fly over laying a string of 500 pounders.
