Many African countries have acquired different deadly weapons that will help them combat terrorism. However, there are some weapons you can't find anywhere in Africa.
In this article, we'll be looking at three deadly weapons you won't find in any African country at the moment.

This jet was manufactured by McDowell Douglas in 1974 but it was later upgraded by Boeing. it is a twin-engine, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, all-weather, supersonic, and it is designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft. This jet can be found in some powerful countries outside Africa, but you won't see it in Africa.

It is a powerful jet that is mainly used on external enemies because of the kind of damages it causes.

Israel possesses this deadly weapon used to counter-attacks, and you can't find the Iron Dome in any African country.
3. Tsar Bomba

According to history, this is the biggest hydrogen bomb that has ever been detonated on earth. The only Federal socialist state that has ever built, used or possessed the Tsar Bomba is the Soviet Union, and they only produced two of the bomb. In October 1961, this bomb was tested on the Novaya Zemlya Island in the Russian Arctic Sea, the result was something the world had never seen. The problem with this bomb at that time was the size and weight, submarines couldn't carry it.

This bomb is not in Africa, and you won't find any weapon in Africa that causes half the damage of the Tsar Bomba.
The weapons mentioned in this article are for mass destruction, and they're mainly used for war with other countries. African countries hardly fight with each other, most of their battles are with internal enemies like Boko Haram and others, that's one of the reasons why you can't find any of these weapons in Africa.
