    Previous tests had revealed unexpected anomalies in blast over pressures and arrival times from airbursts, so Tumbler was conducted to gather detailed data on these effects. Able was based on the Mk-4 bomb, which was essentially the same size as the original Fat Man bomb, but with special core assemblies to obtain a specific reduced yield. The test device used the same U-235 core design first tested in Ranger Able. This design had become something of an experimental benchmark due to its reliability and low yield.
