U.S. drops "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan, marking weapon's first use
Happy Easter!

MOAB DOD Video that was dropped in Afg yesterday

  2017-04-14 09.32.41 "A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb strikes #ISIS cave and tunnel systems in the Achin district of the Nangarhar Province in eastern Afghanistan at 7:32 p.m. local time Thursday. The strike was designed to minimize risk to Afghan and U.S. Forces conducting clearing operations in the area while maximizing the destruction of ISIS fighters and facilities and eliminate any perceived safe haven for ISIS in Afghanistan."

This is the video taken from the C-130 at a very high altitude and very far away and the explosion still looks big. Note the shock wave from the blast. Nasty.......

Time for a C-Gar
