After detonating the MOAB, Russia decided to reveal its own weapon, called the “Father of all Bombs.”
Russia is boasting that the bomb is supposedly even more powerful than the MOAB.
In a video released via Russia Today, the FOAB was premiered. The segment focused on the successful test of the bomb, which is said to have a blast that is comparable to a nuclear weapon, without any radiation fallout.
This comes as a response to the United States’ recent strike on Afghanistan where there are at least 94 confirmed deaths of ISIS fighters. Russia, not wanting to be outdone, had to show the U.S. their new bomb, and the timing couldn’t have been more purposeful.
“Its effectiveness and capabilities are comparable to nuclear weapons,” deputy chief of staff of the Russian armed forces Alexander Rukshin said on the video, provided by The Daily Caller.
“At the same time use of this weapon does not damage or pollute the environment,” and instead leaves the ground looking like the “surface of the moon.”
