CNN aired footage Friday of the  GBU-43, or “Massive Ordnance Air Blast,” dropped Thursday on the Islamic State in Afghanistan.

 

The bomb, also known as the “Mother of All Bombs,” reportedly killed 36 ISIS militants while targeting the terror group’s complex network of tunnels and caves.

 

GBU-43 is the U.S.’s largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat. Thursday marks the first time it has ever been used outside of testing.
