The United States dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan today (April 13), a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB), nicknamed the "mother of all bombs."
U.S. officials say it was the first time this particular weapon has been used in battle. The target was a cave and tunnel complex where ISIS personnel were operating. No word of damage done by the bomb has been released.
