The B-2 wingspan is roughly 50 meters. A good sized moth is roughly 0.05 meters. Assuming you could scale a nuclear weapon, the blast of a very small
1 kiloton weapon (ignoring the myriad of variables) at ground level
is roughly 800m. The fireball much smaller. Moving the decimal gives you a
rough area of 0.8 meters (over two and a half feet) of heavy blast damage.
A healthy 150 kiloton blast would feature a .fireball 1 foot in diameter, and heavy blast radius of over 4 (13 feet) meters.
The max known yield for a weapon carried by the B-2 is 1.2 Megatons would give 7.6 meters (25+ feet) of heavy damage.
An air blast would magnify this somewhat.
All this is very
rough math. Anyone with more time on their hands is welcome to give better math (or point out errors in my own.
