U.S. tests powerful non-nuclear bomb

I heard this on the news this morning. Via Fark, comes this report that says,

Dropped from a C-130 transport plane and guided by satellite, the MOAB – also known as the Mother of All Bombs – is considered a “bunker buster” because of its ability to destroy command bunkers and underground tunnels.

It’s a 21,000lb bomb, that’s over 9 tonnes!
