    The first atomic weapon test conducted by the Peoples Republic of China at the Lop Nor testing grounds. A pure fission device using U-235 only as no Plutonium was available to them at that time. The culmination of 9 years of developement, the test was named after the date the USSR stopped providing the Peoples Republic with assistance for their weapon program.

    Six months separated China’s first and second nuclear test. The second test was of an air-dropped weapon, essentially a weaponized version of the 596 device. A 195m white chalk circle was drawn on the Lop Nur grounds as the target for the test. In one of the trail runs, the bomb missed the target by 682m destroying a bridge intended to be used for the actual live nuclear test. The live nuclear air drop detonated with a force of 35 kilotons and missed the target by 39m.
