I suspect that the Russians planted this story in the Western press in order to defuse the enthusiasm of Americans for Trump’s use of the Mother of All Bombs on Afghanistan.
Common sense would say that Russian president Vladimir Putin wants to discourage more U.S. military interventionism.
By the way, the photo collage above was originally used by the press in a report on what great buddies Trump and Putin were.
From the standpoint of world peace, it’s too bad that the (((neocons))) in the American (((Deep State))) had to ruin America’s relationship with Russia. Because of their blood lust, the world is a much less safe place than it was a few months ago. At least to me it seems that way.
Here’s the story on the Russian super weapon.
THE Russian military has a secret bomb which is FOUR TIMES as powerful as the mega-weapon Donald Trump’s military used to blast ISIS in their mountain hideaway.
The US bomb GBU-43B is the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever to be used in combat and proudly brags the tag The Mother Of All Bombs.
Now it has been revealed Vladimir Putin has even bigger bomb in his mighty arsenal and it really is ‘the daddy’.
Officially known as the Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power – it’s already being dubbed the ‘Father Of All Bombs’.
It is reportedly four times bigger than the MOAB, carrying 44 tonnes of TNT and explodes in the same way as the US bomb.
Yet due to the sheer number of explosives crammed inside it causes similar blast damage to that of a nuclear weapon.
The bomb was test-fired by the Russians in 2007 where the temperature produced by the blast was also twice as high than that produced by the MOAB.
The bomber-dropped bomb is designed to explode midair by ignition of a fuel-air mixture that produces massive blast effects comparable to smaller tactical nuclear weapons.
“All that is alive merely evaporates,” General Alexander Rukshin, deputy chief of the Russian staff, was quoted as saying at the time.
Thermobaric devices detonate in two stages, with an initial blast dispersing explosive materials in a cloud that is then ignited by a secondary blast.
The explosion generates a much bigger pressure wave than conventional explosives, followed by a vacuum effect that compounds damage and injuries caused by the blast.
Russian sources have claimed their weapon has a power equivalent to 44 tons of TNT – or four times that of the MOAB – despite being lighter than its 21,000lb US counterpart at 16,650lb.
Because of its yield and the extremely high temperatures it generates, it is slated to replace smaller battlefield nukes currently in the Russian arsenal.
When the Russian air force began bombing rebel positions in Syria in September 2015, smaller thermobaric bombs were used against ISIS positions, but the FOAB has yet to be deployed.
