Russian nuclear weapons several times more powerful than Chinese and American. It is found on the portal of former employees of the CIA and the Forces of US special operations SofRep.
Experts have calculated the nuclear capacity of each of the atomic bombs and compared them with each other. The yield of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively, were 15 and 21 kilotons. The American Trident missile is superior to almost four times its capacity of 100 kilotons. The best North Korean bomb, the newspaper notes, does not exceed 250 kilotons, and the American Minuteman III is 475.
The Chinese missile DF-31 is estimated at 1000 kilotonnes, while Washington owns a thermonuclear bomb B-53, which is nine times more powerful than the Chinese. However, according to the publication, the power of the Russian nuclear bombs are much superior to its competitors. So, “Sarmat” has a capacity of 50 thousand kilotons, while supercached from the submarine “Status-6” — 100 thousand kilotons. Thus, the best Russian bomb is more than ten times larger than the U.S. design.
On July 19, the Russian defense Ministry for the first time demonstrated the launch and flight of the latest cruise missiles “savages”. The weapon was announced by the President of Russia and is a “low-flying stealth cruise missile carrying a nuclear warhead with practically unlimited range, unpredictable flight path and can overcome the boundaries of interception”.
