DAACM

As of 1991 the Air Force planned to use the I-2000 penetrating bomb for attacking runways rather than develop the new DAACM weapon. With the collapse of the Warsaw Pact, there were few reinforced runways on the US target list, and the existing Durandals were regarded as adequate for standard thickness runways, while the I-2000 can penetrate any conceivable runway. Moreover, it is already in the inventory and needs no development program.
