Sept-2007 - Russian army 'tests the father of all bombs'-
According to Gen Alexander Rushkin, the Russian deputy chief of staff, the new bomb is smaller than the MOAB but much deadlier because, due to nanotechnology, the temperature at the epicentre of the blast is twice as high.
"Test results of the new airborne weapon have shown that its efficiency and power is commensurate with a nuclear weapon," he said.
"The main destruction is inflicted by an ultrasonic shockwave and an incredibly high temperature," ORT added.
"All that is alive merely evaporates."
Despite its destructive qualities, the bomb is environmentally friendly, Gen Rushkin said.

Or video statement
we are willing to use unconventional weapons
One large smokeless blast without secondaries = not a arms factory or fuel depot
imo a tactical artillary size nuke detonation.

for comparison, here is footage of a night time nuclear test.
notice the length of time the bright flash, and the distance.
at the 46 sec mark notice how it resembles the video shown in the op and the others.

Interesting how many computer chair experts are quick to say it does not look like a nuke.
Same can be said about those who believe its a nuke. If it was a nuke which I highly doubt this would be plastered everywhere because you never let a good crisis go to waste.
