To put it into perspective, the B53 was estimated to be 600 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Heroshima.

    Not seeing any dismantling here….

  • Stan_Dalone

    I don't either. but 600 times is nothing to sneeze at.

  • Kodos

    If B53 is 9MT yield, and Little Boy was 12Kt, the math comes to:

    9,000,000 / 12,000 = 750 times!!

    • Kodos

      unless you use Little Boy at 15Kt.. just math

  • Enola Gay

    I didn't know a bomb was dropped on a third city! I wonder if it was a coincidence that its name is so similar to Hiroshima.

      oh they put an E instead of a I. wow nothing gets passed you.

  • etcrr

    well at the receiving end I highly doubt they had time to do the math, just sayin.
