Product Description
Based on available technical information...the South African "Hobo"/"Cabot" nuclear gravity bomb.

The first deliverable, "pre qualification" device produced by the South African nuclear establishment in 1981/2, the "Hobo" (later re-codenamed "Cabot") gravity bomb, a Uranium gun-type device approximately two meters long and some 700kg in weight, with a projected yield of six kilotons, was intended to arm the SAAF's Buccaneer strike fighters.

About six were produced, in the early to mid 1980s. Their HEU material would be recycled into later, more advanced weapons, before the entire South African nuclear program was scrapped by 1991.

A novel option for historical, "What If?" or Alternate History model builds.
