Chagan nuclear test.

Chagan was a Soviet nuclear test during the Soviet atomic bomb project and was the most powerful test in the Nuclear Explosions for National Economy series. It was an underground test, and was fired on January 15, 1965. The blast was the equivalent of 140 kilotons of TNT. The test apparently violated the 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty, and the United States complained to the Soviets, but the matter was dropped. Image File history File links Chagan_nuclear_test. ...
