Report: Russian military tests what it calls world's most powerful non-nuclear bomb
he Russian military has successfully tested what it described as the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb, Russia's state television reported Tuesday, the latest show of the nation's military muscle amid chilly relations with the United States.
Channel One television said the new ordnance, nicknamed the «dad of all bombs» is four times more powerful than the U.S. «mother of all bombs.
Channel One said that while the Russian bomb contains about 7 tons of high explosives compared with more than 8 tons of explosives in the U.S. bomb, it's four times more powerful because it uses a new, highly efficient type of explosives developed with the use of nanotechnology. The report did not identify the explosives.
