The so-called “father of all bombs” was created back in Russia last 2007. It is said to be four times more powerful than the American “Mother of all Bomb” the biggest non-nuclear bomb the US has ever used in a fight.
An analyst stated that when FOAB is detonated,
“living things within the area of detonation are vaporized.”
Russian military claims that it is the most powerful thermobaric bomb of its kind. According to the specification that the Russian military has released, analysts says that Russia might be right.
A military analyst and former US military attaché in Syria Retired Col. Rick Francona said “We believe it’s real.” According to Francona, the Russians were one of the pioneers of the thermobaric bombs.
“I don’t have any doubt that they couldn’t build this,”
According to retired Col. Cedric Leighton, a military analyst and former member of the joint Chiefs of staff,
“The FOAB, if what has been reported about it is true, is the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the world… the FOAB is a thermobaric bomb, which means that its payload explodes at much higher temperatures. The result is that living things within the area of detonation are vaporized, making the FOAB a spectacularly terrible weapon.”
