Military Review

National Interest described the possible consequences of a North Korean nuclear strike on Japan

44
National Interest analysts, using the special program Nukemap, developed at the Stevens Institute of Technology, evaluated the possible consequences of the DPRK nuclear strike on the Tokyo agglomeration, reports RIA News.




The authors emphasize that Japan is interested in the DPRK mainly in the context of locating American bases on the Japanese islands, which will play a key role in the event of a conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

In particular, they express confidence in striking the Yokota US military facility, which is located less than 50 kilometers from Tokyo. In this scenario, "about 13 thousands of people will die, another 45 thousands will suffer," while nuclear precipitation does not reach the Japanese capital, experts say.

“Where a nuclear attack on government structures in Kasumigaseki’s Tokyo region, which will take the lives of more than 24 thousand people, will be worse, thousands more will suffer around 91. However, the most devastating blow to the Japanese Ministry of Defense in Shinjuku will be. About 57 thousands of people will become victims of such an attack, and 128 thousands more will suffer, ”the article says.

According to experts, the fallout from this strike will be the most destructive and will affect the most densely populated areas of Tokyo.

The authors also noted several factors that may affect the number of victims. “On the one hand, the transportation system in Tokyo can serve as a temporary shelter in case of emergency. On the other hand, the flatness of the terrain can lead to blindness and other vision problems in the witnesses of a flash of a nuclear explosion, ”they write.

In general, the magazine notes that as a result of numerous nuclear strikes on the Japanese capital, "tens of thousands of people will die, millions more will suffer." Analysts say that such a scenario "will lead to enormous destruction, which Tokyo has not seen since the Second World War."

          The Japanese did not notice the difference between the bombardment of nuclear weapons and ordinary carpet-mounted HE mines and “lighters”.
          It’s just convenient for them to indicate the reason for surrender to the wunderwafel.

    Something like a little damage ... Nobody knows the exact power of charges in the DPRK.
    Another thing is that it is not clear whether they exist at all, whether they can fly, whether they can bring them down.

    Again, it's time for the US to scare its satellites. Neither Japan nor South Korea are going to attack the DPRK Tal that their DPRK does not threaten. The only threat to them is the United States, since only the United States is going (soon they want to intimidate) to attack and destroy someone in the region and around the world. They, as terrorists, use Japan and South Korea as a human shield and hold them hostage.

      As always, yours is healthy.
      How many wars has the DPRK unleashed in the world?
      How many military bases does the DPRK have around the world. And do these bases have US borders?
      How many carrier groups of the DPRK patrol the shores of distant America?
      And another 100 piece. HOW MUCH ??
      And the same questions about the USA - How many. Military bases and why the United States - around the world ... AUG .....

    Americans, or rather bigwigs, will lay bones with their bones, but they will not allow at least a little bit of friendship between the Koreans. And having provoked the DPRK (though it will already be unprofitable now), by the hands of the "evil Una" remove ta-and-a-pee competitors like Toyota, Samsung and many others from the list.
    And there are no competitors, and they themselves are clean and even in chocolate. Business his mother

    They make a comparison with Hiroshima. There was an air nuclear explosion, there was practically no radioactive contamination of the area. If the explosion is land-based, then Japan will have to be relocated, since REM will be very large on a very large territory and it will not be possible to live there for a long time, and maybe not only in Japan. The power of the Chernobyl explosion was less than 1 kt, the result will be visible for a long time.

      If the explosion is ground
      Nonsense! It all depends on the charge device.
      The military is cleaner and cleaner, but even the Kid was relatively clean.
      The quality of hitting a target depends not only on the power and height of the explosion (all processes will occur in a ball with a diameter less than a device - less than a meter), but also on the terrain and type of development: in the mountains - not many people will notice a neighboring ridge in a modern stone jungle, too so much impact - rather, population density will play a role.
      Somewhere I saw the calculation that in a modern city, and even in winter, you need a power of at least 100 !!! times more than they blew up in Hiroshima and Nagasaki for roughly equal effect.
      The scorched space of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is explained simply - there houses mostly of paper and sticks were there. The effect of carpet bombing was not weaker, there were just more planes. In numbers, I could be wrong, but out of 64 cities, more than 30000 people burned 48, + 2 using nuclear weapons, while the destruction from nuclear weapons was not the greatest.

    All these calculations are more or less true if the Koreans get where they were tagged. If they miss and drop the BG into a seismically active fault, the Japanese islands will be washed away by the tsunami, just like the western coast of the USA to Cordillera.

    The global saviors of the shit democracy did their favorite thing — to shake a test tube with analyzes of their own shit (!) - to intimidate anyone who could be afraid. With a frightened one it is easier to pull off the last shirt. But this time they didn’t attack that (!), Eun stared at them with a bolt, and let them not reassure themselves much about where and what he was doing, striped with his "domestic rabbits." It seems to me that the North Korean comrades did not at all forget how some excessively elected there in Asia behaved during WWII, for which they still did not return the answer. And now there is what, and oh how itchy hands! So, cook the black bags at all! They will not be superfluous.
