Orders, nuclear testing on US troops in 1945-46.
Remember that photo of the bomb going off with all those ships in a circle?
Ghost Fleet Atomic tests.

I've read of B-29's carrying four 4,000 pound bombs on missions and the B-29's max short range bomb load was said to be 20,000 pounds, but I've never seen anything about a huge bomb like that.

Lancasters carried and dropped accurately the:

"Grand Slam" 22,000 lb Torpex filled deep penetration bomb.

"Tallboy" 12,000 lb Torpex filled deep penetration bomb.

5,000 lbs? Pah! a mere fire-cracker! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

FatMan was equal to 23,000 pounds of TNT, this being about half that, could certainly do some serious shake and bake.

If you're speaking of the FatMan nuke, the yield was around 21 kilotons of TNT. If my Ambien clouded brain is not incorrect, that's 42 million pounds of explosive power in a 10000 pound bomb.

The Fatman was rated at about 20 KiloTONS of TNT or 40,000,000 pounds of TNT! That is about 2,000 times as powerful as the Grand Slam.
That is a big bomb but is very tiny by todays standards. The largest bomb ever exploded is the Russian 57 Megaton monster that was tested over Novaya Zemlya in the 60's. That bomb was aobut 2,500 times more powerful than the Fatman! This world is crazy!!!! If the 57 Megaton monster was detonated over a city, it would completely vaporize everything within 30 miles from ground zero and destroy everything within 110 miles. That is a swath of destruction 220 miles wide!!!!!! It really makes me think if humanity is going to make it or if we are going to be responsible for our own extinction.

1. Great effect and screenshots - well done!

2. Lots of great old ships were expended in the Bikini test - Saratoga, Arkansas, Nagato, Prinz Eugen. I wish that they had saved them for a theme park, I'd go! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

3. I think we will eventually kill ourselves. The way I see it, we're essentially ground-apes designed to live in groups of twenty or thirty and to work about sixteen hours per week. You shouldn't pack critters like that together by the millions like sardines, destroy their natural family groupings with advanced sociology and government assistance, work them like machines, or give them thermonuclear weapons. If you do, they are liable to get stressed out, p*ssed off, and blow themselves to smithereens. I don't see any cure for it at this point but, anyway that's what I think.
