Thermobaric weapons are weapons that use oxygen in the air to create massive explosions. They are also called vacuum bombs.

One of the reasons that major powers never engaged in all out thermonuclear war was because that it would have been mutually assured destruction. With vacuume bombs however , this is not the case as these weapons create the heat and explosive power of a nuclear bomb without the fallout of one and are actually more devastating when it comes to tunnels and caves but somewhat less effective at higher altitudes due to the fact that they rely on available oxygen in the air. Without the threat of mutual destruction from the use of these weapons this will mean any military power who has developed them will be more likely to use them ! They are literally dirt cheap and much lighter in weight then a conventional weapon of equal strength and that means that missiles could be able to travel a lot farther ! The video below was done in 2007 and produces and explosive power of a nuclear bomb without any fallout so I am wondering how many megatons they are up to now.

Now as to why it could start a global cold war - They are cheap to make, very cheap and technology among nations is increasing to where they can be easily made by just about any country.

We have bee non the edge of doing that since the USA & Russia got thermonuclear weapons

such weapons could only make a species which thrives on heat stronger.

Fortunately, there are only humans on this planet but there are legends of dragons and other creatures, hence the dragon section we have.

well heat is one thing. a shape shifting dragon is another. these weapons likely are dirt cheap to make because there much less expensive to build.

Exactly. As such , any nation will be able to afford them and can test and use them without any repercussions as their are no bans or international laws against them.

Well it does take a certain level of technology but strangely they have been called "ecologically friendly". Can you imagine that? A bomb considered ecologically friendly because it doesn't cause radiation.

well these type of weapons do not damage the atmosphere or ozone layer. in anyway. so they are dirt cheap and easily built.

I just wanted to do a quick update on this post and add that this is the type of bombs they would use in the event that a virus gets out of control in an area and they don't want it to spread.

yes but i doubt it would work on fire proof targets.

The heat produced by these weapons is near or equal to that of a nuclear bomb so nothing living would survive for sure. As for fire proof targets, it would depend on the amount of heat they could withstand, range from the flashpoint and so on.

i have seen these weapons toast buildings in command and conquer games without all the nuclear downsides.

Actually Xerneas, they are far more devastating in real life.

yes i bet. in some games they are not as deadly. but for some mods these weapons and nuclear ones can devastate the enemy.
