USA to start dismantling the remaining 35 B-53 warheads

The US Department of Energy will soon start dismantling the remaining 35 B-53 9-megaton bombs, the most powerful bombs ever produced in the USA. The Washington Post learned on Thursday that each of the B-53 class bombs equals 400 bombs that obliterated Hiroshima.

Removed from combat duty five years ago, these gigantic thermonuclear bombs were designed for the destruction of underground bunkers built in the Soviet Union for the protection of top Soviet Communist Party leaders and military command stations of Moscow, the newspaper writes.

The B-53 bombs were scrapped in 1997 after the USA created a new B-61 nuclear gravity bomb of the 11th edition for the destruction of underground bunkers, The Washington Post writes.
