Within the context of the TOS-1 previous blog entry some images repeated a better understanding of what occurred now made clear.
"A 'Crushing' Victory: Fuel-Air Explosives and Grozny 2000"
Fuel-air explosives used widely by the Russian army during the assault on Grozny, courtesy of the TOS-1!
"a fuel-air explosive can have the effect of a tactical nuclear weapon without residual radiation."
"The Russian use of tactical, ground-launched thermobaric weapons has taken the wraps off of an effective weapons type that is currently being purchased or developed by a variety of countries. Thermobaric weapons will be present on future battlefields . . . Technology offers no quick counters"
"This is the type of thing as might have been witnessed at Hiroshima ?" See here and here previous use of this image.
"The Russian political leadership apparently . . . allowed the use of ground-delivered thermobaric weapons. Air-delivered thermobaric systems were only used outside the city."
CHECHEN FIGHTING POSITIONS WITHIN THE CITY OF GROZNY ATTACKED BY TOS-1. THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. THIS IS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION. RELEASE FOR THE USE OF SAME HAVING TO BE OBTAINED FIRST FROM THE HIGHEST ECHELON OF THE POLITICAL AUTHORITY.
"This does have the appearance of what the aftermath of a nuclear attack would look like! Thermobaric weaponry was used extensively by the Russian in Grozny?" See here and here previous use of this image.
"A fuel-air explosive can have the effect of a tactical nuclear weapon without residual radiation."
NOT only can, it does! "Fight the enemy with weapons you have and he does not!" - - A. Suvorov from the time of Napoleon.
