An atomic bomb or nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb). Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter.

The New Order Edit

The Nazi manages to acquire technology from the Da'at Yichud to perfect their heavy water experiment resulting in Germany becoming the first country to successfully creating the atomic bomb. As the result, they managed to make the US surrender by bombing New York City with atomic bomb called ''Der Bestrafer''.

New York is nuked by the Atomic Bomb


The Atom Bomb used by the Nazi to nuke New York

In 1960, the Nazi began to mass produce nuclear weapons ranging from the traditional nuclear bomb to nuclear cannons that fire nuclear shells, as seen on the Eva's Hammer.

The Eva's Hammer, under the command of the Kreisau Circle, used the nuclear cannon to destroy Deathhead's compound, in the first nuclear strike by the resistance forces against the Nazis.

The New Colossus Edit

By 1961, the Nazis have successfully managed to mass produce nuclear missiles in factories in some regions of the US.

The American Resistance and the Kreisau Circle, on the other hand, also have some nuclear cannon shells inside the Eva's Hammer, left over from The New Order. They also recently discovered warheads in Section F, later made accessible after B.J. cleared the area of Nazi survivors. Set Roth disguised one of the warheads as a fire extinguiser and tasked B.J. to destroy Area 52 with it, which he succeeds at. B.J. also fired another nuclear shell into the sky to free their beached U-boat while at New Orleans, which brings the total number of atom bombs detonated by the Resistance to 3, with 2 detonated by B.J. himself.

Because of BJ's actions, criminal charges laid by Nazis against him also include nuclear terrorism, even though B.J. only killed Nazis and their collaborators and not anyone else.



  • The Nazi atomic bomb used to destroy New York City looks like that of the real life Fat Man plutonium bomb used by the United States.
