Media: Western social networks scare each other Russian "father of all bombs"

34
There is a rumor in social networks, according to which Russia allegedly dropped its most powerful non-nuclear bomb on terrorists in the Islamic State * in Syria, which is called the “father of all bombs,” according to The Drive. Material translation provided by InoTV


On September 7, 2017, a post appeared on Twitter, stating that eyewitnesses and activists near the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor saw this bomb in action. However, so far neither the English-language media of Russia, nor the Ministry of Defense have reported on the use of this weapon.

As noted by The Drive, about the "father of all bombs", which is officially called Aviation high-power vacuum bomb (AVBPM), little is known. There are practically no official photo or video images of these weapons. One recently published tweet even used a photograph of a mock-up of the Soviet thermonuclear Tsar Bomb. According to the Russians, AVBPM weighs more than 14 thousand pounds, and the power of its explosion reaches 44 tons of TNT.

Media: Western social networks scare each other Russian "father of all bombs"


If the reports of the Russian air strike prove to be true, then this could be a message for other parties to the conflict in Syria, the publication said. So, the Syrian rebels from the Syrian democratic forces, supported by the United States, made it clear that they were going to launch an attack on the province of Deir ez-Zor, in order to allegedly strike the IS. However, as the newspaper notes, as a result of this operation, they can begin to strike the troops of the Syrian government and its allies.

And a powerful blow to Russia can be viewed as a warning to all the forces opposing the regime and interested in entering this territory from which the IG is forced to retreat.

Regardless of whether Russia really dropped the “father of all bombs” in Syria or not, the Kremlin has already decided to use this country as a testing ground to demonstrate its newest weapons, even if they are not well suited for the current situation. So if the “father of all bombs” is really on alert, then it may well be that over time we will be able to see him in action in this war-torn country.
- summarizes The Drive.

“Islamic State” * (IG *) is a terrorist group banned in Russia

    According to some, the “dad of all bombs” is the most impressive non-nuclear munition in the world. The Russian counterpart weighs significantly less than the American, but is four times more powerful: the area of ​​destruction during its explosion is 20 times more.
    It is noteworthy that the data on the vacuum bomb are kept in the strictest confidence. Who designed it and how many shells were created is unknown. It is noteworthy that Russian experts do not exclude the development of more powerful ammunition.

    Where is even more then?

    What is the purpose of using a 7-ton munition? Honestly, it’s easier to pour 250 kg of OFABs into it, it will be cheaper. Moreover, we still have a bunch of OFAB still Soviet-made ... It’s hard to believe that the ABBM has been used.

    A bomb of this type in the Russian army is called the High-Power Volume Detonating Aviation Bomb - ODABPM. But not Vacuum.

    We should expect from the State Department a note of concern about the dad bomb.
    The State Department as evidence of the application will bring tweets and posts from social networks.

    If you believe Wiki, then this is 300 m of lifeless territory, and the name of the product is incorrect and no one knows the real one on the forum. If this news is not fake, then it could be compared to a message to Trump with the words of Zakharchenko: “Guys, my proposal is to lay down your arms and leave. You are not at war with those”
