You can get a yield of 890kT for the latest NoKo test if you use 6.3 Mb and constants from Nevada test range. All BS and posturing.

They used Kazakh values for Indian Pokran range as well. And lowest Mb. All so they can say Indian bums fizzle.

Re: India - South & North Korea Thread

NoKo tests a hydrogen bomb and SoKo response is a live fire drill using conventional ordnance to simulate an attack on the test site? Is there anything worth attacking in the test site? Isn't it a contaminated barren mountain? I can't think of a better way to demonstrate impotence than this.
