Most Powerful Conventional Bomb Ever Used In War Was Just Dropped On Afghanistan

The United States Air Force has just dropped a MOAB ("Mother Of All Bombs") on an ISIS tunnel and cave network in Afghanistan.  This was the first operational use of a MOAB and was the most powerful non-nuclear weapon used in battle in human history.

I'm not aware of any footage of the actual bombing, but here is footage of a test of a MOAB in Florida:

At 11 tons, the bomb is larger than any formal bomber can handle, so it has to be dropped from a modified cargo plane.  It is often compared to a small, tactical nuke without the fallout.  The explosion creates a cloud two miles high and visible from twenty miles away.

  1. Of course it's called MOAB. Straight out of prophecy. Psalms 83
