Fat man - is a new nuclear bomb enough to kill hundreds of thousands in one day

The United States has confirmed several tests of the new high-precision nuclear weapon, nearly three times more powerful than any weapon that can be carried on a launcher.

The "fat man" bomb thrown at the city of Nagasaki in 1945 isbelieved to have killed as many as 40,000 people in one day, according to the British newspaper Metro.
The US Air Force carried out dozens of tests for the guided nuclear gravity bomb B61-12, which was designed to penetrate underground caches and destroy heavily armored command posts. The accuracy of the new bomb is three times greater than the previous nuclear weapons.
"We have already conducted 26 tests of engineering, development and guidance," said General Jack Weinstein, deputy chief of staff for US Strategic Defense and Nuclear Integration. "The program works very well."
The new bomb can be carried on aircraft, including B-2 Spirit, known as a stealth bomber, and a long-range B-21 launcher, now called Raider.
The bomb weighs 20 kilotons, which means that the new US bomb can kill at least 200,000 people in one day.
