Now of course you should never play with matches, let alone a nuclear bomb. If you have a bomb, you are a terrorist, and I hate you. This map is just for fun, to go along with the nuclear bomb testing video posted below.
The list of weapons contains bombs of historical significance - but what happens with modern, nuclear-assertive countries not in the list? France: has a similar to "B61", also deployed by jet fighter.
India, Pakistan: equivalent to "Fat Man". Probably larger.
Iran, Syria: deny having a bomb. Yet. Smaller than "Little Boy".
Israel: denies having a bomb. Ever. As big as "Joe-4". North Korea: equivalent to "Little Boy". Probably smaller.
South Africa: had "Little Boy", but renounced nuclear weapons.
Wonder what the differnt colored rings mean? Click on the red tear drop in the middle for an explanation.
When I click the red marker, I just get an explanation of the thermal effects.
Nope. The teardrop only gives you information about the thermal zones. The blast effects are much wider circles.
