Also known as the ‘Mother of all bombs’ (or in short, MOAB), The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, is the biggest non-nuclear weapon to be used by the Military of the United States of America.  The eleven ton bomb was checked for the first time in 2003 and was initially built to be used in the process of invading Iraq but was not used in the Iraq war, leading to the drop of the bomb in Afganistan on April 13, 2017 (Thursday) was the first practical use of the bomb.

The US MC-130, an American aircraft, broader than 300 meters, discarded the ‘Mother of all Bombs’ on what the United States of America alleges to be a net of the underpass of the ISIS. The carter afterward blasted around 6 feet higher than the ground, converting into vapor anyone present in the area.The Afgan government confirmed the death of 36 fighters of ISIS and the Military of United States of America has not yet come across any proof of civilian loss.

The weapon, ‘Mother of all Bombs’, was thirty feet extended, forty feet broad, and weighed nine thousand five hundred kilograms, making it bulkier than the nuclear Hiroshima bomb. The blast ambit breadths a mile in all directions, the weapon being non-nuclear, does not leave any radiation consequences.

Setting up such a huge weapon is very tough, as even the biggest aircraft built for bombing cannot tackle the burden and magnitude of the bomb. It can only be released by the reverse of a huge cargo using a classified system.

The experts suggest that the bomb-dropping was not a political decision, rather a military one.  The general of the military and not the President of the United States of America seems to be having to make the decision of the attack.  The president of the United States of America, Donald Trump claimed that the incident did not purpose to send any message.
