B61’s...I used to load those things on carrier planes...They always looked like something designed by a science fiction writer or something.

Kind of like if you asked a kid to draw a picture of a nuclear bomb, they would draw a B61 without ever having seen it.

200 Kt bang-bang.The newest variant is the B61 Mod 11, a hardened penetration bomb with a reinforced casing (according to some sources, containing depleted uranium) and a delayed-action fuze, allowing it to penetrate several metres into the ground before detonating
