Droppable? The pic clearly shows a droppable bomb. The first US tests weren't. I suppose the USSR might really have done its first test with a "weaponised" droppable form, but it seems a bit unlikely. Does anyone know for sure? Was the actual test done from a tower, or dropped?

Seems likely.
  • The design was already tested by the U.S.
  • The aim of the test was to test the effects on infrastructure. (note "metro")
  • The first Soviet hydrogen bomb tests were weaponised (if I remember correctly).
  • Even the Tsar Bomba test was weaponised.
