Americans compared their nuclear weapons with Russian

15
The American edition of Tech Insider compared several of the most famous Russian (Soviet) and American atomic bombs. For better perception of the information, the authors of the video visually compared the sizes of the “mushrooms” after the explosions of the corresponding charges, and also showed what would happen to New York, fall on him Tsar-bomb, 50 Megatonn.


It is worth explaining which damaging factors correspond to one or another color of a circle on the map: the yellow circle is the radius of the fireball, the red circle is the radius of total destruction, the black circle is the radius of partial destruction, and finally the orange circle is radiation burns of the third degree.

    Let them take off how the “Tsar bomb” will explode if it will be fully wound up. As originally thought 200 megatons. Sakharov persuaded not to explode at full capacity. And he did the right thing. hi

      Personally, I am more impressed by another Sakharov project - 200 megaton torpedoes in a titanium hull, which lie quietly along both coasts of America, covered with silt, waiting in the wings, 50-100 years, as long as it takes. And on command, they organize tsunamis and sweep away everything 500 km inland, sweeping away all the main cities. Only Chicago will remain.

        Unfortunately, there weren’t so many such mines. And whether they work, because so many years have passed, no one knows. And he can’t know - we haven’t done such experiments yet. Or maybe it will work for us in comfort ...

        This is the degree to which one needs to be naive or different in order not to understand that nuclear weapons are therefore called a deterrent weapon, and not a real use. Because sitting on the same branch and competing who cuts it faster will be sad for everyone

          You do not explain this to us Russians. You try to explain it to the Americans. The United States is actually the only country in the world that has actually used nuclear weapons twice.
          And for us, nuclear weapons are a way of survival. We had to pick up this club and wave it with a club so that we would not be touched.

    These are flowers ... if they create or create Status-6 in 100 mt, then it’s not like New York, the whole state will blow it away ... And Sarmat who is able to make a big funnel from Noah with the subsequent impossibility to live there years 100.

      Why can’t you live there? Do not confuse the consequences of a bomb explosion and the consequences of a nuclear explosion. No one will live in Pripyat for another 400 years. And Hiroshima and Nagasaki are beautiful cities, by the way. People live there, and the ecology will be better there than in Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg.
      If interested, read about the exercises at the Totsky training ground with a nuclear explosion at an altitude of 300 m. The experiment was brutal, but it gave us a lot of useful knowledge.

        Then I would recommend that you learn about statistics on the growth of deaths and other consequences throughout the region where the subsequent effects of this test are spread.

          And I did not say that nuclear explosions contribute to improving the environment and living comfort. Read my comment carefully. I just clarified that after the Sarmatian nuclear strike on New York, your beloved Americans will be able to live there. They will feel bad, of course, especially at the beginning, but they can live there.

            I do not blame you for your reasoning. Only the real truth is that humanity, including the Americans and Russians, will have to join forces to confront those whom and enemies are difficult to name. We will only contemplate the confrontation between those who will defend our existence with those who will seek to enslave it. Sooner or later, or rather, very soon it can happen. And there are reasons for this. While indirect, but it is a harbinger of important events.

    Sarmatian with a complete set of 45 MT. Almost a king bomb. Only herself arrives. Without an invitation.)))

      Sarmat will have 10 separable warheads - each of 750 kilotons.

        If in general, then there are worthy gifts!

    It seems to me that the Americans are completely off the reels. They resemble a crazy radio host from the mountain from the movie “2012”. To them, nuclear war already seems like a wonderful show in which they will only be spectators.
