The world’s top ten most powerful weapons are more terrifying than the others in terms of lethality and destructiveness. Who will go to the top of the list? What are these abnormally powerful weapons?
10. The Cluster Bomb
It looks no different from ordinary bombs on the outside, but there are hundreds of small bombs inside. They are loaded on the plane, disintegrated in the air after being dropped, and the small bombs rain down on the target area.
Under this kind of carpet bombing, There is simply nothing to preserve the whole body. Also, after the sub-bombs are scattered all over the place, many of them will not explode immediately. When the bombing stops, and people come out, it will go off if they accidentally bump into it.
What’s more, the bomb detector can’t recognize this thing at all. Such inhuman bombs have been resisted and banned by many countries, but some countries that have used such bombs have never stopped using them.
9. Cloud Bomb
The first explosion will discharge the fuel, emitting a cloud of white smoke, and the second explosion will occur after the fuel has completely mixed with the air to form an aerosol cloud. Fuel within the spectrum of detonation.
At the explosion site, the intense temperature absorbed substantial oxygen from the surroundings, resulting in severe oxygen deficiency. Simply put, the instant this object exploded, all of the air’s oxygen was consumed. Even if it could avoid the detonation damage, no one could survive the four minutes of hypoxia.
It is also scores of times longer than the detonation time of conventional bombs. It’s not just noise; explode it and set it ablaze. It will create a massive fireball over the designated location. In addition to being large in dimensions, its maximum temperature exceeds 3000 degrees Celsius. There is virtually no grass remaining in the area.
8. Thermobaric bomb known as a sub-nuclear weapon.
The thermobaric bomb can also be regarded as the PLUSE version of the cloud bomb. It is further developed on the basis of the cloud bomb. It is more powerful.
The thermobaric bomb uses solid fuel and adds a lot of explosives to the explosive. The chemical powder enhances the thermal and pressure effects of the thermobaric bomb, and when it spreads into the air, its lethality is many times more powerful than that of the cloud bomb.
Since the thermobaric bomb has a large damage range and almost no dead angle, it can devastate closed spaces such as buildings and caves. There is no escape from death on the ground. Such a huge range of damage is like a small nuclear weapon.
7. Russian TOS-1 self-propelled rocket launcher
Let’s dub it a fire-breathing tank based solely on this object’s appearance. Based on the original fire-breathing tank, Russia developed this heavy-duty fire-breathing tank. It is equipped with a missile launcher with a maximum range of 6 kilometers.
It is able to launch two rockets per second and ten rockets per salvo, with a death zone of three square kilometers. As long as the number of flame-breathing tanks is sufficient, the salvos, in turn, will be sufficient to demolish half of the city, a veritable carpet bombing. This is the crucial point.
The flame-breathing tank can carry multiple incendiary, high-explosive, chemical, and thermobaric warheads. One round of bombardment is sufficient to turn the target into a hornet’s colony.
6. GBU57 giant ground penetrating projectile
This is presently one of the heaviest non-nuclear bombs in the world, with a total weight of 13.6 tonnes and a TNT equivalent of 11 tonnes. It can penetrate the surface and strike subterranean targets with relative ease.
Ordinary explosives will detonate as soon as they reach the ground, whereas ground-drilling bombs will continue penetrating the ground until they reach a predetermined depth.
It can accurately penetrate reinforced concrete 60 meters thick or gravel 40 meters thick. It is indeed 60 meters by 40 meters, can continue to drill down after penetrating, and its explosive potential is approximately 30 times that of a bomb of the same size.
5. B2 Stealth Bomber
B-2 is known as the ghost in the heavens and is a devil-like existence. As a result of its stealth capability, it is able to pass freely over many countries without being detected, thereby avoiding hostile air defense systems.
The combat range can reach 12,000 kilometers, and the range for air refueling is 18,000 kilometers. Each mission’s maximum flight duration cannot be less than 10 hours. Since 1997, when it entered service, it has made numerous nations covetous; however, no aircraft has been able to replace its status as a deterrent with global reach and devastation capabilities.
4. Ford-class aircraft carrier
This thing can be regarded as a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier integrating the most advanced technology in the United States. It is 337 meters long and weighs about 100,000 tons, which is equivalent to the height of a 24-story building. At 65 nautical miles per hour, it is also the fastest aircraft carrier in history. It can carry 75 aircraft and 4,500 people. It uses electromagnetic catapults for the first time.
Four ejection tracks on the deck can launch a fighter into the air every 45 seconds. The power is equipped with Two A1B nuclear reactors, which can stand by for 50 years without failure. In addition, the Ford-class aircraft carrier also adopts a stealth design. It can reduce the probability of radar detection.
The hull is equipped with two eight-unit missiles, two anti-aircraft missiles, three six-tube 16mm Phalanx artillery, and a bunch of heavy machine guns. This configuration can be regarded as chopping wires with a kitchen knife in hand, with lightning all the way.
3. U.S. UGM-133A ballistic missile
Few people have heard of this missile. It is a submarine-launched ballistic missile. Its appearance has become the main weapon for the old U.S. to deter other countries at sea. Currently, 14 US Ohio-class strategic nuclear submarines are equipped with this missile. In other words, It can appear in any corner of the world at will.
Its length is more than three meters longer than that of ordinary ballistic missiles, its maximum range can reach 12,000 kilometers, and its accuracy error is only 90-120 meters. It can be said that it takes into account both range and accuracy. With a variety of warheads, it can easily destroy a city, and it is a veritable king among submarine missiles.
2. Russia’s Satan missile
The full name of the missile is the R-36M intercontinental ballistic missile. The former Soviet Union developed it with the whole country, and it is a proper fighting nation. It is the largest and most powerful active-duty missile in the world. It is 33 meters long, weighs an astonishing 200 tons, and has a payload of 8.8 tons.
It can carry 10 pieces of TNT, each with an equivalent of 7.5-10 million tons. The guided nuclear warhead and 40 decoy bombs can effectively confuse the air defense system and greatly reduce the risk of interception.
It is 1600 times that of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, and only one bomb can cover entire Japan. And his maximum range has reached 16,000 kilometers, which means that he can go to every corner of the world when launched from the Russian mainland. Satanic missiles are extremely threatening to any country. The power is quite amazing.
1. Tsar Bomb
Big Ivan, once the Tsar Bomb came out, he surprised the whole world. Some people say his power is equivalent to an asteroid hitting the Earth. He is the most powerful bomb in human history. Like the Satan missile upstairs, he came from the Soviet era. It is 8 meters long, has a diameter of 2.1 meters, and weighs 27 tons.
It can be called the strongest in the world in terms of volume, weight, and power. Its power is equivalent to 3800 times that of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, and this is the premise of compressing the power by three times.
At the beginning of the design, the explosive equivalent was 170 million tons of TNT explosive equivalent. Because of fear of unpredictable impact, it was reduced to 50 million tons. After the test explosion, the whole world felt different degrees of shock.
The Soviet Union built two large TNT explosives at that time. Ivan is used for test explosions, and the other is used to show the powerful military strength of the fighting nation. This is also the last king bomb left by the Soviet Union to Russia.
