high-yield explosives
Gatzarou
υψηλής ισχύος
Explanation:
Both the B83 and the B61 have a feature known as "dial-a-yield'' in which the bombs' explosive power, or yield, can be adjusted. The maximum yield is more than a megaton, the equivalent of a million tons of TNT, a mountain of conventional explosives. At high yield, the B83 would produce an explosion more than 2 million times more powerful than the "bunker buster'' bombs the Air Force has used against Taliban and al-Qaida caves in Afghanistan.
