Four US officials with direct knowledge of the mission confirmed the US had dropped the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, aka the “Mother of All Bombs” or “MOAB,” over the Achin district of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, which borders Pakistan.
The thing weighs in at 21,000 lbs and creates a blast radius stretching A MILE in each direction.
