The Military refused to use it as a "display" of force, for the actual turn out which was an actual weapon.
I don't really know why though...I seemed to remember seeing somewhere that it was because they thought it wouldn't be effective enough, or that it wouldn't be a good judgement of what the bomb could really do if they were to just blast it off shore of say Tokyo.
But those claims are foolish (albiet only from our stand point) why would anyone continue to fight if you were to blow one of those off just before dawn about 5 or 10 miles off shore of Tokyo.
