-Stick grenade
-Type 89 grenade discharger First, the V-2 rocket

-Germans invented V-2
-The first one launched was in Sept. 1944
-The rocket had a one ton warhead and was 14 meters long
-Used liquid oxygen and alcohol for fuel
-Rocket was capable of reaching supersonic speeds
-Could reach altitude of 50 miles
-The rocket couldn't be stopped when launched

Atomic Dropped Little Boy on Hiroshima
Little Boy

-It was 9700 pounds
-10ft long
-Uranium as fuel and
the blast was equal to
15000 pounds of TNT
-But only 1.38% of the
uranium actually fissoned
-The efficiency of Little Boy was
-But it still killed about 140000
people (Little Boy) Atomic B omb (Fat Man) (Fat Man) Fat Man

-It was 10800 pounds
-Instead of Uranium as fuel,
it used Plutonium as fuel
-It had a Plutonium core surrounded by 5300
pounds of high explosives
-The Plutonium core was reduced to the size of a
tennis ball
-About 1.176 kilograms of Plutonium actually converted into energy
-The efficiency was 10 times
the efficiency of Little Boy
-The blast was equivalent to 21000
tons of TNT
-Dropped on Nagasaki, Japan

Bockscar Fat Man explosion The Stick Grenade! Stick Grenade

-Then fire lit the gun powder causing deadly explosion
-This grenade caused lots
of deaths and fatal injuries
(losing limbs)

-This was mostly used to clear out
buildings and to kill large groups of
the enemy Next... Last but not least... The type 89 grenade discharger Type 89 grenade discharger

-It was one of the most deadly and
simple weapons Japan had in WWII
-It had a 50mm calibre
-254mm barrel length
-An overall length of 610mm
-The maximum range for it was
about 732 yards
-The minimum range is about 131
-To fire, you would put the shell in the barrel,
put weapon at certain angle to the ground (45
degrees would make the shell go the farthest),
and pull the handle on the side
-The shell it fired was about 1.75 pounds
-And type 89's weight was about 10.25
pounds Type 89 grenade discharger There were many deadly weapons
invented in WWII and these are just
some of them... All of these caused damage. Especially Little Boy and Fat Man! Thanks for watching !!!
