Tokyo clarified the estimated power of the North Korean charge

35
The power of a nuclear charge tested in the DPRK 3 September allegedly amounted to 160 kilotons, TASS a message from the Minister of Defense of Japan, Itsunori Onodera



We estimate the power could be about 160 kilotons,
said the head of the defense department today.

He referred to data from the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), according to which, “the magnitude of the aftershocks at the time of the September test of 3, the test was 6,1”.

According to Onodera, this is "almost 10 times the power of the" Kid "- the atomic bomb dropped on 6 August 1945 of the year in Hiroshima."

According to the initial CTBTO estimates, the magnitude of the aftershocks from the explosion was estimated at 5,8. Based on this, the Japanese department concluded that the charge power was 70 kilotons. On Tuesday, the estimate changed - it was announced about the magnitude with the value 6,0. The Japanese Ministry of Defense also changed its findings and reported yesterday on the power of the charge in 120 kilotons.

Recall 3 September, the DPRK authorities announced the successful testing of the hydrogen charge, designed to equip intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    A hydrogen bomb has no limits of its power, and if ON accumulates a sufficient amount of lithium-6 deuteride and plutonium with uranium ... it’s even scary to think ... a thermonuclear charge capable of blowing all who live there from the Korean Peninsula may well bungle too.

    Classical war there then, in principle, will be impossible.

        Well, yes ... a new concept is already being formed in Japan ...
        Old samurai - they know, but they are silent that the "Kid" and "Fat Man" are gifts from the Americans.
        Young samurai - they know that these bombs simply exploded ...
        But for the very snotty samurai, they are convinced that Russia (not the USSR) dropped these bombs

      a 100Mt thermonuclear charge capable of taking down all who live there from the Korean Peninsula may well be bungled.

      And why the hell would he shoot such a heavy-duty bomb on his peninsula .. This is more of a gift for the United States .. However, the DPRK Ambassador to the United Nations openly said this:
      https://ria.ru/world/20170905/1501794441.html
      The DPRK ambassador to the UN said at the Disarmament Conference in Geneva that the latest test of the hydrogen bomb in the country is a “gift box sent exclusively to the United States,” Reuters reported.
      "The latest self-defense measures taken in the DPRK are a gift set exclusively addressed to the United States. The United States will receive more gifts from my country as long as they rely on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK," said Han The Song.

      Well, the charge still needs to be delivered to its destination. Therefore, it has size limitations, Kuzkina’s mother didn’t get into the bear’s bomb, she had to be chemical. Easier with a nuclear torpedo, but they do not have a suitable carrier. If only to undermine the device, in the form of a sea container, causing an artificial tsunami. Academician Vostretsov spoke of such an option. Even our superbomb used secret technology to people inaccessible. Therefore, if it makes a charge in a megaton, at least for a torpedo of its standard torpedo tubes, then it will already be cool. Of course, they do not possess technologies like Status-B, but the selfless crew of suicide bombers will probably be able to send ...

        Well - optional. In the sense - that Pukhlik has nothing to lose. If you have to use nuclear weapons - that means that's it. The personal hour of Pukhlik and most North Koreans struck. Therefore, a supermassive device can also be undermined in its territory, like a mine.

        Plus, I'm more than sure that they are actively mining nuclear mines. For there are few paths to the north ... And the charges of the very first generations of any volume and weight are suitable for mining.

          DPRK has huge ties with the same Japan.
          North Korea’s communication with Japanese business is an order of magnitude (i.e., ten times) superior to South Korean-Japanese contacts.
          In the news, you are unlikely to find out about this ...
          It is the Japanese who are the main suppliers of de facto to North Korea in an embargo.
          They somehow managed to agree among themselves.

    This means that the Japanese essentially confirmed the fact of the presence and testing of thermonuclear weapons among the Seaero-Koreans! It’s just that I have been following events for a long time, and more than I’m sure that someone clearly helps the Seaerokoreans to promote their nuclear missile programs, because they can do everything very quickly and quite effectively. This country is not capable of such literally effortlessly pulling such programs with their poor budget. Maybe they didn’t create a bomb, but received it from an "uncle", and is it possible that this "good-natured person" wants to "destroy" North Korea? Are you obviously using the blind.

    Now think, something so small. They argue. We have all the data, to the penny, as in America. And you don’t have to rattle your ass, dusting, interested in information. which interests VO and its subscribers. I’ll say more, users of VO are much more aware of you.
