Nuke That City - the Sequel

Potential megalomaniacs with strong homicidal leanings have a wide choice of virtual ways to destroy the world. For example, if you want to practice dropping a nuclear bomb on your least favorite cities then you can choose between NUKEMAP or Ground Zero.

Both of these interactive maps allow you to view the potential damage that a wide choice of nuclear weapons could have when dropped on locations around the world. Now you can also use Outrider - Bomb Blast - which comes with far more realistic looking nuclear fallout effects.

Like its predecessors Outrider - Bomb Blast allows you to view the likely devastation of dropping a nuclear bomb on any location in the world. You can choose from a range of different types of nuclear weapon and choose whether you want to detonate it at ground level or as an air burst. You can then view the likely damage on an interactive map. The map shows the likely radius of the fireball, radiation, shock wave and heat. It also provides an estimate of the number of fatalities and injuries your nuclear weapon would cause.

Once you've had some fun virtually destroying your least favorite cities you should sober up by visiting Outrider's Nuclear Weapons section, which includes a series of articles exploring the history & human cost of nuclear weapons.
