CHINA has tested its largest non-nuclear bomb, nicknamed the ‘Mother of All Bombs’, which is designed to obliterate fortified targets and could be up to 20 feet long.
According to Afghan officials, between 32 and 92 Isis fighters were killed, though as they were buried an official casualty count was not conducted.
According to Mr Wei’s analysis the Chinese bomb is a little smaller than its American counterpart, potentially meaning it could be deployed by conventional bombers rather than transport aircraft.
Russia has also developed a monster bomb known informally as the ‘Father of All Bombs’.
There are reports it was dropped on an Isis position in the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor in September last year, though these have not been confirmed.
