Not the largest bomb!

Our US press is raving and ranting about the MOAB dropped it seemed they never checked (what a surprise!) for the RAF Grand Slam in WWII. It was the same size --11 tons and was nicknamed the earthquake bomb. It was dropped by RAF 617 squadron and knocked down road viaducts and even a canal.
