Rare Footage Of An Vickers Valiant Dropping An Atomic Bomb
The U.K. Had Their Share Of Drops Too.
Welcome to the 1950s. A wonderful time when countries were constantly testing nuclear weapons in the name of peace. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s see what we got here.
The U.S. and Russian nuclear tests range in the thousands, so the U.K. has a minuscule amount of testing in comparison with only 88 performed tests between 1952 to 1991. This is one of them.
Although we’re not sure which one of the tests this was it’s impressive to see nonetheless, as how many of you have actually seen a Valiant do what it was designed to do?
Pretty impressive for something built right after World War II.
