GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (Mother Of All Bombs)

The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB aka the Mother of All Bombs) is a large-yield conventional (non-nuclear) bomb. At the time of development, it was touted as the most powerful non-nuclear weapon ever designed. The bomb was designed to be delivered by a C-130 Hercules.

Two MOABs were tested on March 11, 2003 and November 21, 2003.

15 MOABs have been produced. One has been deployed to the Persian Gulf but none are known to have been used in combat.
