The B-61 is one of this country’s current air-dropped nuclear weapons. Light enough to be carried by fighter aircraft, such as the F-16 seen in front of you, the bomb has the distinctive capability of having its explosive power altered by the pilot prior to being dropped by simply turning a dial from low power to high yield. At full power, the B-61 can generate more than 22 times the power of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. (Flight-Ready Artifact, disarmed)
