BREAKING: U.S. drops massive bomb in Afghanistan

The U.S. Air Force dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in its arsenal in a mountainous area of eastern Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province on Thursday.

The bomb is called the “Mother of all bombs,” Jennifer Griffin reported to Fox News from the Pentagon. It is a 30-foot, 21,000-pound bomb that was developed in 2003 but has never before been used in combat.

The bomb does not penetrate into the ground but is capable of penetrating tunnels and has a blast radius of one mile.

The Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb was dropped on an ISIS tunnel target, according to reports.


Below is information about the bomb which was released in 2014, demonstrating the testing of the bomb which has never before been used in combat.
