just checking....because the sonic boom caused most of the damage, as I understand but I couldn't imagine a boom knocking down walls.
On the other hand, those Russky building inspectors are pretty lax :)

Interesting question. Now I wonder if damage from a sonic boom can be measured
by the size of the object. Size does matter dont-cha-know.

“...I couldn’t imagine a boom knocking down walls....”
That one factory bldg (in one pic I saw) really suffered some upper-level damage. The pic stunned me; looked like it took a direct hit. Guess those spanning beams bent and collapsed like spaghetti.

It was not the sonic boom. It was the explosion of the mass caused by entry into the atmosphere
I couldn't imagine a boom knocking down walls.
The exothermic front from a detonation is supersonic, and would probably be considered a 'sonic boom'.
