Ecologically-Friendly Ordnance

AP (09.11.07):
"The Russian military has successfully tested what it described as the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb, Russia's state television reported Tuesday."

Russia Tests Powerful 'Dad of All Bombs'

Russian TV says that the bomb is "four times more powerful than the U.S. 'mother of all bombs'."

"'The tests have shown that the new air-delivered ordnance is comparable to a nuclear weapon in its efficiency and capability,' said Col.-Gen. Alexander Rukshin, a deputy chief of the Russian military's General Staff, said in televised remarks."

"Unlike a nuclear weapon, the bomb doesn't hurt the environment, he added."

As long as you don't count vaporizing everything within its blast radius, that is.
