Father of all bombs!

An environmental-friendly bomb!

Russia today tested the world's most powerful thermobaric bomb,popularly known as vacuum bomb. Dubbed by the Russian military as the 'father of all bombs'(sic), it is four times more powerful and the temperature at the epicenter of its blast is two times higher than the American Massive Ordinance Air Blast bomb - MOAB, also known under its name 'Mother of All Bombs.'

According to Russian reports,the bomb has no match in the world and does not contradict a single international treaty. The main destruction is inflicted by an ultrasonic shockwave and an incredibly high temperature.

Such devices generally detonate in two stages. First a small blast disperses a main load of explosive material into a cloud, which then either spontaneously ignites in air or is set off by a second charge.

Next to come: Grandmother or Grandfather of all bombs??
