Tsar Bomba vs Ukraine: US Simulates 100 Megaton Nuclear Strike on Kyiv in an unpresented scenario

In a move that raises many questions, US analysts simulated an attack on Kyiv with a 100 megaton nuclear bomb. In fact, the simulations was an attack with a Russian strategic weapon, specifically the infamous Tsar Bomba!

Tsar Bomba (meaning king of bombs) was developed between 1956 and 1961 when the Soviet Union became involved in an arms race with the United States.

It was the largest hydrogen bomb ever made and was 3,300 times more powerful than the bomb that hit Hiroshima.

The hydrogen bomb, containing more than 50 million tons of conventional explosives, was tested in October 1961. The bomb was detonated and exploded 4,000 meters above Novaya Zimlya (New Earth) Island in the Arctic Ocean.

But why did strategists simulate a nuclear strike with a strategic weapon and not a tactical one? Why did they want to see maximum losses? 

100 megaton strike in Kyiv?

The simulation showed, as expected, that the effect of a 100 megaton nuclear strike on the center of Kiev was absolutely devastating.

The approximate zone of destruction of the nuclear bomb, without the effect of secondary factors of the nuclear explosion, is about 65 kilometers. This, for obvious reasons, has devastating consequences for almost everything in the area.

Taking into account the population living in Kyiv and in the zone of destruction of the nuclear bomb, the number of victims will be almost 2.5 million people.

Almost certainly, in this case, the neighboring Ukrainian regions will be affected, as well as the territory of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and Belarus.

To date, only one nuclear bomb has been created in the world, which carries approximately the same destructive effect, this is the Tsar Bomb. For comparison, the power of all nuclear warheads of the Sarmat intercontinental ICBM is only 8 megatons.

However, it is noteworthy that in the near future, the Poseidon nuclear submarine drone, the power of which is estimated at 100 megatons, may appear in service with Russia.

Recently, the Russians launched against Kyiv the Kh-55 missile (Russian name X-55) which carried a virtual nuclear warhead (nuclear combat unit simulator).

The Kh-55 missile (Russian designation X-55) was developed to carry a nuclear payload.

The Ukrainians then concluded that either this missile with a dummy nuclear warhead was simply being used as a somewhat less expensive decoy aimed at misleading Ukrainian air defense systems, or the Russians had simulated a nuclear strike.
