US forces dropped a MOAB bomb yesterday in Afghanistan on suspected ISIS hideouts. It was the first time a MOAB or Massive Ordnance Airbust bomb was used in active battle.
MOAB is more officially known as a GBU-43B and has a yield of 11 tons of explosives. The bomb can be deployed from as high as 20,000 feet, and it hits the ground at supersonic speed.

Now the pentagon has officially released the video of this bomb attack:
