    This device (code named Scorpion) was designed in part by Ted Taylor. Snapper How was the first test to use a beryllium neutron reflector/tamper, which would become standard in later weapons. The test device used the same 56 cm implosion system as Snapper Easy, but the lightweight tamper cut 36 kg off the implosion system weight. Predicted yield was 11 kt. How was originally scheduled to be fired on May 27 but was postponed due to unfavourable weather conditions. The cloud reached an altitude of 12,740 meters. The cloud dispersed in several directions. The lower portion moved in a north-western direction while the upper portion moved to the north-east.
