The Russian military has successfully completed tests of the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb.
The new ordnance, nicknamed the "dad of all bombs" is four times more powerful than the U.S. "mother of all bombs." (MOAB)
"The tests have shown that the new air-delivered ordnance is comparable to a nuclear weapon in its efficiency and capability," Alexander Rukhsin, a deputy chief of the Russian military's General Staff, said in televised remarks.
The new bomb carries fewer explosives than the U.S. device, while the temperature at the center of its blast is twice as high and the area of damage much greater, Bloomberg reports.
