When planning to destroy the world with nuclear weapons, make sure you have the right yeild for the target...


From what I've found online, to help give you the heeby-jeebies, the expected yeild of a suitcase bomb like the FBI fears is 3-5kt. The largest airburst nuclear test ever done was 57kt. The largest nuclear weapon ever made was the Tsar Bomb from the form USSR with 50mt (50,000kt) yield. The first nuclear bomb used as a weapon was Little Boy, weighing in at 13kt, followed shortly by Fat Man with a yield of 25kt.
