Largest thermobaric bombs are pretty damned huge.
from wiki on the russians "father of all bombs"
"According to General Alexander Rushkin, the Russian deputy chief of staff, the new bomb is smaller than the MOAB but much deadlier because the
temperature at the centre of the blast is twice as high. He says the bomb's capabilities are comparable to nuclear weapons, but unlike
nuclear weaponry known for its radioactive fallout, use of the weapon does not damage or pollute the environment beyond the blast radius.
In comparison, the MOAB produces the equivalent of 11 tons of TNT from 8 tons of high explosive. The claimed blast radius of the FOAB is 300 meters,
almost double that of the MOAB, and the temperature produced is twice as high"
44 tonnes of TNT equivalent - basically a massive (7 tonne bomb) and thought of as the closest thing to a real nuke, only obviously larger is size and
without any nuclear fallout/radiation.
Big enough? @ 2,000,000lb comment guy
