About Weapons and Countries
The list of weapons contains bombs of historical significance – but what happens with modern, nuclear-assertive countries not in the list?
- France: currently has a similar to “B61”, also deployed by jet fighter.
- India, Pakistan: equivalent to “Fat Man”. Probably larger.
- Iran, Syria: deny having a bomb. Yet. In any case it might be much smaller than “Little Boy”.
- Israel: will not confirm or deny it has about 75 to 100 equivalents of “Joe-4”
- South Africa: had “Little Boy”, but renounced nuclear weapons at the end of the Apartheid era
