MK17 Nuclear Bomb

MK17 Nuclear Bomb

Bryden
The heaviest known nuclear bomb in operational service was the Mk 17 carried by US B-36 bombers in the mid 1950s. It weighed 19,050 kg (42,000 lb) and was 7.47 m (24 ft 6 in) long. The bomb had the dubious distinction of being involved in a "Broken Arrow" lost nuke incident in 1957, when a Mk 17 accidentally fell from a B-36 near Albuquerque, New Mexico. The bomb's high explosive components detonated upon landing but thankfully this did not trigger a nuclear explosion. #0 #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #atomic #bomb #mass_desruction #nuclear #Nuclear_Bomb #sketch_up_militia
