Russia Tests Vacuum Bomb

Russia has tested the World's Most Powerful Non-nuclear 'Vacuum Bomb'. The Russian military is calling it as the "Father of all Bombs". Russia's 'ORT First Channel' TV yesterday showed a Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber dropping the vacuum bomb over a testing ground, which exploded in a massive fireball. Pictures of crumpled multi-storey apartment blocks were also broadcast.

"Test results of the new airborne weapon have shown that its efficiency and power is commensurate with a nuclear weapon," Russian Deputy Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Alexander Rushkin told the channel.

According to General Rushkin, the Vacuum Bomb is smaller than the United States "Mother of all Bombs" but much deadlier because, due to nanotechnology, the temperature at the epicentre of the blast is twice as high. The new bomb is a proof that the country's military is regaining its technological strength which might facilitate the escalation of the new Cold War. Link
