Product Description

Based on available technical information, and with a dose of "What If?"...the "zeroth" generation South African nuclear gravity bomb.

The dimensions and external geometry of this weapon are based on released data and images of South Africa's first nuclear explosive device, circa 1977. Intended as a test device (although the test itself was cancelled), and never as a deliverable military weapon, this represents a conjectural version "jury rigged" for aircraft delivery. Approximately 4 meters long, 3500 kg in weight, and with a projected yield of six kilotons, this bulky Uranium gun-type weapon could just, by my calculations, be borne by an English Electric Canberra bomber. (Or be "kicked out the back" of a transport plane, such as the C-130!)

A novel option for a "What If?" or Alternate History build.
