    All of both India's and Pakistans tests were subsurface, these screenshots show a surface burst.

    I wonder what the yield was. I also saw a quick scene of the Test on TV but I do not remember what TV program it was, and it appeared to be a small nuclear explosion. Smile

    Err...please note Sonic's post.

    It is doubtful these pictures are of the India tests as sub-surface tests simply do not look like that.

    Well, I think that it is not a nuclear test it is so small and shallow.

    Not all of India's nuclear tests were contained underground explosions. Shakti IV and V were shallow underground tests of low yield creating ejecta craters, for example. There were also other tests in this series.

    The shot Azer posted shows a fireball without any ejection material.

    This is why I agree it is not a shallow, low yield nuclear test, since all Indian tests were under the surface.

    So, does anyone want to have a guess at what this shot actually is then?

    I guessing a High Explosives shot... maybe to see the effects of it. I mean what about the picture at the top left part of the picture, that looks like it may have been used for an experiment.

    In the red cirlces it shows a trailer carrying what seems to me, a huge pile of possibly high explosives stacked up ontop of each other into huge cube shaped pile.

    Could this possibly have been a trial run test just some time before the actual live underground test? If so then it would be almost identical to what the U.S. did back in 1945, (the 100 ton test), (The pile of high explosive was threaded with tubes containing 1000 curies of reactor fission products, The test allowed the calibration of instruments to measure the blast wave, and gave some indication of how fission products might be distributed by the explosion.)

    They probably just did the same thing as the U.S., thats what I say anyway.
