Just to clarify, the Tsar Bomba was developed as a 100MT, but was dialed down to 50MT - en.wikipedia.org...
Some others give a figure of 57MT. So the videos on YT are not of a 100MT bomb. This new missile delivery system is supposed to have 10 warheads - so I highly doubt they will each have a 50MT yield. I may be wrong in that assumption, but I don't think it makes strategic sense.
The headline should read something like "most sophisticated" and not "Strongest" as it muddies the water. (That's not the OP's fault - ATS rules).
