China Tests MOAB

China Tests MOAB January 4, 2019

China has tested its most powerful non-nuclear bomb, claimed to be similar to the US-made GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast (Mother of All Bombs /MOAB) which was dropped from a H-6K bomber in December. The bomb can obliterate armoured fortifications and defensive positions using tanks and armoured vehicles, state owned media reported.

The China North Industries Group Corporation (NORINCO), showcased a new type of MOAB in a promotional video being air dropped by an H-6K bomber in December.

According to the report, the new bomb is China’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb and the H-6K is capable of carrying only one at a time due to the bomb’s size.
