That must be one of our General Army Buddies:grin:

No, the image above doesn't seem to be a product of Photoshop, or any other image manipulation software, for that matter. This is actually a Corvette catering to a bomb's transportation needs.

The photo shows a C4 'Vette towing a trailer, which is unusual enough on its own. Nevertheless, we are more worried (no, really, we are) about the cargo.

At first sight, the image, which comes via Corvetteforum, appears to show an aerial bomb, the kind that requires a plane in order to serve its purpose.

Still, there are plenty of reasons for which such a device can't be there. For one thing, transporting explosive material of this caliber is not exactly legal, simply because it's not safe. Imagining a crash and its consequences is enough to prove this point.

Then there's the weight of the thing - we haven't been running around with a scale in our pocket, but we have a hunch the thing is past the C4 Corvette's towing capacity.

Mmm.. have to say this looks a little odd to me..

As I look closer at the picture.. the white line running from in front of the corvette right-hand-side.. seems to run right through the car.. now with the hood configuration, I would have expected the line to be broken up more than it is...

Someone else will probably know the answer to this one.. but I reckon it is a contrived photo... >:D
