Nuclear Bomb Comparison – USA vs Russia

When we talked about Weapon of Mass Destruction, Nuclear Bomb is first that ring the bell, it is the most destructive weapon ever created by humankind, This weapon so powerful it can wipe out entire country out of the map and kill the entire population (is not exaggerate!) i’m not talking about the first nuclear bomb ever detonated on real human population (Hiroshima & Nagasaki). As compare to modern (Hydrogen)Nuclear Bomb created both by United States and Russia, Fat Man & Little Boy is really just a small portion of  today Nuclear Bomb can do, its 1000 times more powerful!!

The most powerful Nuclear Bomb of all is Tsar Bomb, this is the powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated on earth and it belong to Russia (USSR), yield of 50 megatons, (50 million tons of tnt). In its “full” form (i.e. with a depleted uranium tamper instead of one made of lead) it would have been 100 megatonnes of TNT (420 PJ). as compare to USA bravo only 15  million tons TNT(this is the most powerful test by US).

Now lets compare on the effect radius if one of these Nuclear Bombs detonated on New York City,

1. Castle Bravo (USA)




Estimated fatalities: 3,893,420

Estimated injuries:3,480,230

In any given 24-hour period, there are approximately 11,999,065 people in the 1 psi range of the most recent detonation.

2. Tsar Bomb (Russia)


Estimated Fatality:7,737,880

Estimated injuries:4,078,150

In any given 24-hour period, there are approximately 16,477,605 people in the 1 psi range of the most recent detonation.
-Tsar Bomb-
  • Fire Ball radius it cover the whole New York city
  • The entire building will definitely level
  • Even at 64.2 km away from the detonation you still can have 3rd degree burns (you are cooked like turkey on thanks giving)
One drop of this bomb, definitely annihilate the entire New York City, but lets compare both side by side,
