Bunker Buster Bombs Contract a Bust, Says DoJ

Kaman Dayron Inc. violated the False Claims Act by knowingly supplying faulty fuses for “bunker buster” bombs under a lucrative DoD contract, alleges a civil suit filed by the United States on friday. Assistant Attorney General Tony West said that the defective ignition devices pose “a safety risk to our military,” and the parts supplied by Kaman Dayron have been “quarantined,” according to DoJ. As the name implies, Bunker Busters are a type of bombs designed to penetrate deep underground and through reinforced concrete before exploding.
