    Hey guys ive been wondering this for a long time now. How does yield selection in nuclear devices work? I have never got the idea of how you just select a specific yield for a nuxlear device.

    Here is something I found on the internet that might help. It gives a good explanation as to how the "Dial-A-Yield" process is acheived Smile

    Yes thank you very much, its basically done by injecting certain amounts of tritium gas into the weapons core or by lead tampering. Interesting thank you now I know. Smile
