Russia tests world’s most powerful vacuum bomb

Writing by admin on Saturday, 22 of September , 2007 at 9:45 pm

The world’s most powerful vacuum bomb has been tested by the russians.The bomb unleashes a destructive shockwave with the power of a nuclear blast.

The bomb is the latest in a series of new Russian weapons and policy moves as President Vladimir Putin tries to reassert Moscow’s role on the international stage.The defence ministry stresses this military invention does not contradict a single international treaty. Russia is not unleashing a new arms race

Such devices generally detonate in two stages. First a small blast disperses a main load of explosive material into a cloud, which then either spontaneously ignites in air or is set off by a second charge.

This explosion generates a pressure wave that reaches much further than that from a conventional explosive. The consumption of gases in the blast also generates a partial vacuum that can compound damage and injuries caused by the explosion itself.

FOAB farting of all bombs. Another copy of American Technology: MOAB. We already built it years ago, just because it blows bigger does not mean we cannot build bigger. Russia is like a child wanting to kick his dad’s ass when he grows up.

Russian is awesome…..
The true champ . As far as america is consern look throughout history you atom bomb or missile program even stealth fighter tech everything is by a German or french scientist or someone from other part of city .
Even the case of Russian tech is russian & german scientist in that sense they are the original.

And lol if you think they copied your motherofall bomb then there must be something really wrong in usa that their defense secret and tech is like a sl ut on sale.

Think before you speak

Actually Russia has been making weapons like this dating back to the 60 -70s way before the MOAB was ever created.every now and again the USA copies Russia.F-35 lift fan engine is a copy of the 1998 Russian yak freestyle.FOAB design is completely different than Moab.its smaller with double the blast radius. Not as big as Russia claimed but definitely better.Sometimes America copies and sometimes Russia copies.im an American born and bread,but I don’t let my ego get in the way of the truth right in front of me.
