On Thursday, President Donald Trump directed the U.S. military to drop its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan, killing 92 terrorists. Now, Russia has fired back by dropping a bomb of their own.
RT reported that Russia has been testing it’s Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power, known as the ‘Father of all bombs’ (FOAB). Developed in 2007, this bomb eclipses its US rival in both power and efficiency.
The bomb explodes mid-air, combining with atmospheric oxygen to extend the blast radius as it vaporizes targets and collapses structures. Alexander Rukshin, a deputy chief of the Russian armed forces, said after it’s original test that it showed “its effectiveness and capabilities are comparable to nuclear weapons. At the same time use of this weapon does not damage or pollute the environment, like a nuclear weapons.”
