Father of All Bomb

Father of All Bombs is a Russian-made air-delivered/land activated thermobaric weapon. In describing the bomb's destructive power, Russian deputy armed forces chief of staff Alexander Rukshin was quoted as saying, "all that is alive merely evaporates".

The bomb is reportedly four times as powerful as the U.S. military's GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB,ackronymed as the "Mother of All Bombs"). This would make it by far the most powerful conventional (non-nuclear) weapon in the world.

The bomb was successfully field-tested in the late evening of September 11, 2007.According to the Russian military, the new weapon will replace several smaller types of nuclear bombs in its arsenal.
