Indian Prithvi ballistic missile

An Indian Prithvi short range ballistic missile (SRBM) on display, mounted on its Tata transporter erector launcher. The original liquid fueled Prithvi had a 150 km range for a 1,000 kg payload.

This development version still has the markings of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

Fuel Air Explosive (FAE) bomb explodes

An animation/video of a Fuel Air Explosive (FAE) or thermobaric bomb being dropped and detonating to destroy a structure.
