Tsar Bomba was weaker

>Tsar bomba was 2 times weaker then was planned
Engineers planned bomb first time two times stronger then it was produced
They just realized bomb gonna be too powerful.
Pilot was about to die not in 50% like is was irl
Theres no space to detonate it without destroying some villages near
And much more other reasons

        ESL, but I gather what you mean.
        >goal of ~90-110Mt
        >de-tuned with lead tamper, replacing the fast-neutron fissile U-238
        >therefore, extremely high fusion:fission energy ratio
        It was entirely impractical, generally inefficient, and yet extremely interesting. Likely the most unique example of the 3-stage Teller-Ulam design, albeit the most unique conventional one. Since the fireball was so massive and so hot, it took a while to cool down; thermal radiation had a prompt peak, but then emitted for some seconds with extremely high energies. That's the blue/white flash, the pause, then the white-to-red dimming as the fireball lost heat slowly. Also, because of the detonation height, the cooled fireball was quickly shrouded by water ice and vapor, which differs from the Castle series - you can see the color of Bravo's debris cloud is dirtier.

        Overall, 7/10 warhead. Brute force solution to a problem the designers made up. Not as efficient as the B41, nor nearly as deliverable. Still incredible they tried.

          These super high yield single bombs are basically a meme, right? They don't achieve anything a scattering of normal size nuclear warheads couldn't do more efficiently.

          >It was entirely impractical, generally inefficient,
          Well yeah. It was a complete meme that failed in it's intended effect (being a warning to the US) simply due to the sheer size of it. Not only was the device completely impractical from a delivery point of view due to it's size and weight, but everyone had already kicked around the idea of massive yield nuclear weapons and found them to be less useful in every metric than a 10MT warhead.

          After a certain yield, it was discovered that there were simply no targets that realistically required a warhead that size. In the Tsar Bomba's instance, this was known from the outset and only two cases were ever built for it - one for testing and the other as a museum piece. It's a similar to why the poseidon is a meme weapon, it's list of potential targets is already tiny (in comparison to a ballistic or cruise missile) just from the fact that it's a submarine and then potential targets decrease even more when you consider what targets could potentially be serviced by such a yield all without addressing the survivability of such a weapon.

              Fun Fact!: The effect would be significantly less than the tsunami expected.

            No.
            The Poseidon is a meme weapon because it fundamentally will not do the things Russia claims it would (I.e. produce a hundred foot tall radioactive tsunami)

              I would argue that the tsunami bit is just playing up nonsense for domestic consumption. Poseidon is a meme because it doesn't change the strategic picture, is ineffective as deterrence, requires specialized modifications on a valuable strategic asset that would better be spent having it do it's designed duties and it's potential use cases are so limited as to be meaningless.

              It fundamentally has less utility in every way than a standard SLBM even considering that designing such a weapon as poseidon is a tacit admission that they no longer have full confidence in their ballistic and cruise missile stockpiles to reach their potential targets.

      Two times weaker is half as strong as 2 times stronger than half expected, so yeah, check mated.

    >Everything within three dozen miles of the impact was vaporized, but severe damage extended to 150 miles radius
    Everything in a 300 mile diameter would be damaged and everyone likely killed or injured. That's fricking insane to think about. It's not just a city ending weapon but a country ending weapon.
    The total power was estimated to be 3,800 times stronger than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
    Another fact, the center of the sun is 27,000,000 Fahrenheit (15,000,000 Celsius), and the center of a 1 megaton nuclear explosion is many times hotter than that. The energy in a 50 megaton explosion is unimaginable. It's no wonder boomers and Gen X were shitting their pants in the Cold War.

    And they never built another one, because they realized that the only 2 ways to deliver it on target was either a heavily modified super heavy rocket that they couldn't get to work anyhow.. or a heavily modified bomber that they'd never get to close enough to a Nato country to use

      Think of them less as absolute destructive weapons and more of "Haha I have the bigger dick, moron!"

      Yes multi warhead and many smaller warhead are massively more effective. This was known and well underway for R&D before weapons of that scale were "tested" (dick waved)

      Yes. When the blast radius reaches 10km or so it's much more happier traveling up, into empty space than trying push around dense air near ground. They do increase blast radius, but with diminishing returns. Around 10Mt you can cover similar radios with 7 x 100kt bombs. Additionally you get more intensity across area and with MIRVs can better cover non-circular targets.

      Only exception is when the power output at epicenter matters - e.g. you want to completely excavate a missile field, a mountain bunker etc so a 100Mt of energy will make sure that even bedrock will evaporate in that 100m mini-sun. Or you need to power something else...

    Russia could have made it twice as huge, but just set it off in a really deep mine or some shit to contain the blast. Would have been cool as hell.
