USAs MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) & Russia’s FOAB (Father of alll Bombs)

These Videos show both the USA’s MOAB (Massive Ordnance Air Blast) which began development in 2002 prior to the Iraq War and Russia’s new FOAB which was tested on September 11th 2007. Russia’s “Father of All Bombs” blast yield is supposedly equivalent to 44 tons of TNT while the USA’s MOAB has a blast yield equivalent to 11 tons of TNT. While the blast yield of the Russian bomb may currently be larger then that of the USAs, one must keep in mind the time frame in which the MOAB was completed in comparison to the still unreleased time frame of the Russian made FOAB. Given the data provided one is left to assume if needed, the USA could quickly develop such a missile in response.
