6. B-83 Nuclear Bomb
Anyone who cherishes life on Earth, which should be every one of us, finds nuclear weapons horrifying and hopes they will never be used again. Years of non-proliferation by the US and Russia have resulted in a significant reduction in the number of nukes and the number of people who can use them. Those who remain, on the other hand, have the capability to destroy the entire world dozens of times over.
When it comes to raw destructive force, the United States wields the strongest army of any nation on the planet and nuclear weapons with an overabundance of deadly potential.
The B-83, which was designed to be dropped from a bomber, produces 1.2 megatons of explosive energy, which is the equivalent to one million two hundred thousand tons of TNT. To put this in perspective, the bombing attack on Hiroshima following the end of World War ll was almost 80 times more powerful.
It is, without a doubt, the most destructive freefall weapon in the US inventory.
