    Yoke |Sandstone|

    Date: 18:09 UTC 30/04/1948 | Type: Tower @61m | Yield: 49 Kt

    Yoke was detonated just before sunrise after being postponed for one day due to unfavorable winds. The 49 kiloton yield was the largest up until that time and remained so until 1951. Ten seconds after the blast the fireball was 1.6 kilometers wide. The cloud reached an altitude of 17,000 meters. Yoke used an all-oralloy core, with a Type B levitated pit. Despite the 49 kiloton yield, it was considered an inefficient device. A Prandtl -Glauert singularity, a result of the compression and rarefaction of the air at the shockfront can be clearly seen.
