I read a couple of reports later declassified by the CIA containing autopsies of Mujahedeen fighters killed by the Russian use of FAEs in Afghanistan. It reported a 100% kill rate within a 1.5 mile radius of point of impact, usually from massive internal trauma and laceration of the lung and other internal soft tissues. Those closer to point of impact suffered severe burns over thier entire bodies. Even those underground or under sufficient cover to survive the blast effects due to lack of oxygen, since all the oxygen was burned out of the atmosphere within a radius of over 2 miles from point of impact.
And this thing is even bigger.....
