Russia has ‘Father Of All Bombs’

The “Father of All Bombs,” (FOAB) is four times bigger than the MOAB. It’s a thermobaric bomb with a destruction radius of nearly 1,000 feet and a blast yield of nearly 44 tons of TNT.
The US just dropped a 21,600-pound conventional bomb called the Massive Ordinance Air Blast AKA the “Mother of All Bombs” (MOAB) in Afghanistan, but Russia has a bigger one.
Developed in 2007, the FOAB explodes in midair, igniting a fuel-air mixture. It vaporizing targets and collapses structures, producing blasts and aftershocks as powerful as a small nuclear blast but without the same radioactive fallout.
Thermobaric weapons differ from conventional bombs in that they combine with atmospheric oxygen to greatly extend the blast radius.
