B61 Nuclear Bomb: The B61 was designed as a tactical and strategic nuclear bomb that could be dropped by aircraft moving at a high rate of speed. Production of the bomb began in 1968 and it is expected to remain in service for the foreseeable future. The bomb can be carried and dropped by most American combat aircraft. The basic bomb weighs about 700 lbs. and is capable of producing a blast in the 0.3-340 kiloton range depending on the warhead used.

The B61-12 will replace a 1-megaton nuclear bomb called the B83 (below). The military says that, in the process, it will cut the number of nuclear gravity bombs by 50% and recycle only 17% of weapons-grade nuclear materials from old bombs into new ones. The rest won't be used, it says.

In fact, less kills but much more accurate making it actually usable rather than other nukes that result in M. Although less payload in terms of kilotons than the nuke, much more lethal.
