Today the US Military dropped the MOAB (Massive Ordnance Air Blast, a.k.a. Mother of All Bombs) in combat in Afghanistan. At over 21,000 pounds weight, 30 feet long, and 11 tons of explosives, this is the largest non-nuclear weapon in existence. As a non-nuclear weapon it isn't under control of nuclear weapon control programs. Yet, it has a blast radius of 1 mile and would therefore cause LOTS of damage.
