Testing Fuel-Air Explosives / Thermobaric Bomb | Finnish MOAB 5 000 000
How Fuel-Air explosives or thermobaric weapons work? We are going to find out with our experiments and also test their effects on miniature city. All explosions are filmed with Chronos high speed cameras at 1000 - 10 000 frames per second.

Don't try this at home! Vaporized fuel is toxic to breath and bad for the nature! And high explosives are also really dangerous if not used properly.

      You should start doing scale explosions and video their effects on structures and maybe some ballistics gell for flesh, to see what the damages are to people and animals!!

      Yo you got some freaking amazing bomb ass footage!! That footage near the end made it all worth it!! I was literally blown away, no pun intended!! The way the dust came up off the roofs was jaw dropping, it was clear you placed the dust on the roofs, meaning you knew it would make for amazing footage & shots, kudos bro, thats a pro move!! Hell I thought I was watching a movie at one point, the footage is just that good!! I look forward to more videos like this!!!

    When we first heard of thermobarics in the army we went out and made clouds of anything we could pulverize. Lol. Our most impressive results were with the dry Graphit weapon lube. It made a great grey cloud that seem to almost glow when you lit it off and the flame rate was slow enough it was an awesomely sinister glowing cloud for a second or two. Lol.

    That looks so close to those old declassified nuclear test videos from the 40/50’s 😳😳

  • ArchaicWisdom

    Aspiring terrorists should refrain from watching this 🧐


    Cuz if u watch the documentary on fuel air explosion, they use very small charge to ignite the mist but the mist amplify it 2-3x.


    I have a question. Seeing the slowmo, don't u think all that blast is mostly coming out of the explosive u r using to ignite, of which the fuel mist only adding like 1.5x the explosion??? Shouldn't u just ignite instead of exploding?

    wonder if this method could be used to extinguish wildfires. just curiosity.

  • YouCanHasAccount

    I'm reasonably sure I could engineer an efficient dispersion mechanism that does not need HE. Maybe it's better to just say "don't try this at home" than to challenge engineers by saying "you can't do this at home".

  • kooskroos

    There was smoke in the buildings before the explosion?

    There's the answer to "American nuke videos from the 40s" No nukes have ever exploded by a fission and fusion, just 1000s of tons tnt.

    So I watched this on a speaker set up with a 15 in subwoofer. It shook my house when fist demo went right. Was not ready for that, not only is footage amazing but you captured what I can only imagine it felt like being there when it went off. Super cool!!

    Wasn't quite a nuclear explosion...no vacuum effect, of air rushing backwards to fill in the air pushed out by first shock front...check out the video of the trees they nuked, they shake back and forth. Also, in videos of nuke tests you can see thermal radiation burning things before the blastwave hits

    You can also use a water sodium combination with c4


    This was so well done. Not just the experimentation but the filming and sound design were top notch. The black and white slo-mo shots reminded me of old nuclear test footage. It was very tastefully put together, and not just when compared to other videos on explosives. I was a fan of Mythbusters back in the day. This really reminded me of that.

    The mini houses/barns seem to explode from the inside- is that because of the pressure difference created by moving air outside of the structure? Or is there some way the pressure wave moves inside and deflects outwards through the roof?
