CHINA has put US officials on military alert after testing a so-called ‘Mother of All Bombs’ that could “completely obliterate” fortified defences in the West.
The destruction potential of the bomb is second only to nuclear weapons.
The test launch shows the massive bomb drops onto an unknown plain before producing a gigantic ball of fire and black smoke.
The bomb is suspected to be a response to the US’ GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) weapon, more commonly known as the "Mother of All Bombs”.
No details on the date, location or range of the bomb blast were provided.
