The Tsar bomb or “Tsar Bomba” in Russian, is huge. It’s equivalent to 500 megatons of TNT and is the biggest bomb mankind ever made. See how careful the workers are loading and unloading it from the truck. It arrived after previously being stationed in the nuclear scientists city in the middle of Russia, at a Moscow museum to commemorate the 70 year anniversary of nuclear weapons being made in Russia. Watch the photos and video inside:

Only one Tsar Bomb was made – this is what the official records say. And the one that was made was detonated in 1961. So this must be a fine replica, sharing probably the same body and elements but not carrying the actual nuclear components.

  1. @ Steven Wei, the real one had the yield of 50 to 58 Mtons of TNT (210 to 240 PJ). It was detonated over the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, at Sukhoy Nos. Actually, the initial three-stage design was capable of yielding approximately 100 Mt, but it would have caused too much nuclear fallout and the plane delivering the bomb would not have enough time to escape the explosion.

  2. It is just an empty hull. The mass of the required uranium and explosives would make much heavier equipment for transportation neccessary.

  3. “70 year anniversary of nuclear weapons being made in Russia.”
    Seriously, comrades? Outside Russia, 2015 – 70 = 1945. The only country with fully functioning A-bomb in 1945 was not your beloved CCCP/Russia/Putinstan/whatever you call it, but the evil-imperialist-neo-nazi-whatever USA.
    Just for the record…

    • They probably mean the start of development of nuclear weapons in the USSR. It started indeed in 1945.
      The first start was actually given in 1942 when Soviet government ordered work to start on developing Soviet nuclear weapon, as soon as numerous Americans who spied for Stalin in the US informed the Soviets about the start of the project Manhattan.
      Soviets knew a lot about the US progress due to numerous Americans who informed Soviets about everything in the US and other countries.
      It’s all covered in detail in Wikipedia.
