UXB or A Bomb?

This has bugged me for a while... While the commentary from Positron et al states that the bombs are "UXBs", the actual enemy name is "A Bomb". I'd appreciate advice on how to resolve the conflict - a simple redirect doesn't seem to do it justice (as there is the possibility of different types of bombs in the future) but having the same content in two pages is frivolous...

It is indeed UXB, as can be seen by the non-volatile versions in the Rikti War Zone. I don't know what the deal with "A Bomb" is. When in doubt, use UXB, as that's the official term for the enemy. --GuyPerfect 23:03, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
Point taken. I guess my comment was more that it is "officially" referred to as a UXB, and then is "officially" an enemy named A Bomb. Myabe just add a redirect from A Bomb to UXB? How do you do that, by the way? Kalon 23:23, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
I put a message on your talk page. Also, for reference, Help:Redirect. - Snorii 09:04, 25 July 2007 (EDT)
Thanks Snorii! Out of interest, I tried that (searching Categories only for the term redirect turned up a few examples) but rather than create a page that is useless, I hit Preview... and it appears as an ordered (numbered) list: 1. REDIRECTUXB. Saving creates the page properly, so I will put it down to "undocumented feature"(*cough*bug*cough*) Kalon 20:43, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

Picture - incorrect?

The picture attached is for the Rikti Bomb, not the A Bomb. All of the UXBs that I have seen are slightly yellowed (perhaps reflecting/tinted from the sky of the invasion event?) and from what I remember, don't have the Foot Stomp crater around them... I will try to get a better pic of it, but I know this has been re-used. -- Kalon 19:45, 2 August 2007 (EDT)

My bad, I just thought they were the same model, so I reused my Rikti bomb pic. I'll remove it. - Snorii 22:48, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
