World War 3: Here’s what would happen if a nuclear bomb was dropped on London during WW3
In response, Russia’s defence ministry said: ‘We would like to underline that London‘s direct provocation of the Kiev regime into such actions, if such actions are carried out, will immediately lead to our proportional response.’
So if the ‘Little Boy’ 15 kiloton bomb, which was dropped by the US on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in WW2, fell on the City of Westminster of London it is estimated that 76,460 would be killed and 245,960 injured.
The fireball would have a radius of 180m, the air blast radius – which would severely damage buildings – would be 340m and the radiation radius – where death rates would be between 50% and 90% – would be 1.2km.
With an estimated 565,980 people being killed and 1,629,370 injured if it fell on the City of Westminister
The fireball radius would be 0.63km, the air blast radius – which would severely damage buildings – would be 4.95km, the thermal radiation radius – causing third degree burns, scaring, disablement, and can require amputation – would be 7.67km.
