America Just Dropped HUGE Bomb On ISIS
This was truly the mother of all bombs. One of the largest, non-nuclear bombs ever dropped by the United States. I’d say ISIS is getting Trump’s message today, if they have failed to so far.
For the first time in military history, the United States has deployed its largest, non-nuclear bomb, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb in combat against an enemy target.
The MOAB (also nicknamed the “Mother of All Bombs”) is a 22,600 lb bomb with a blast yield of 11 tons of TNT.
This is what it looks like.
And when it comes torpedoing down….
Here’s a test of the same bomb JUST deployed on ISIS. This was tested in Afghanistan.
According to NBC News
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that the GBU 43 weapon was used Wednesday around 7 p.m. local time in Afghanistan. He called the weapon “large, powerful” and accurate. The strike targeted tunnels and caves used by ISIS.
Here’s an old video of a MOAB dropping in on Yemen during the war.
