Just wondering, but what kind of delivery systems do we (i.e. the US) have for Fuel-Air Explosives... pretty much the only way I've seen of using them was dropped from a C-131 in outbreak. That doesn't strike me as a good way to use 'em in combat, so I was wondering what other planes/missiles could be used to drop it. Any info?

Those are the big ones. There are smaller ones housed in relatively conventional free-fall bomb casings carried by F/A-18s, etc. Go to www.fas.org for tons of info/pictures regarding this and many other interesting military subjects.

Big ones? Sure you don't mean outrageously *huge* ones?

Merely "huge"? I mean ones whose size can only be described as "repulsively titanic"! (apologies to "Ren and Stimpy")

FAEs can also be loaded onto ICBMs.
