Operation Crossroads: Able and Baker

I had to make a slight modification to see the power of both bombs

The United States had a plan to invade Cuba code OPLAN 3-16. It was to use 18,000 American troops. But the public did not know that Cuba had a FROG tactical nuclear weapon waiting to be detonated over the landing zone.

As I recall, the German heavy cruiser PRINZ EUGEN, of BISMARCK and Channel Dash fame survived the first test bomb literally unscathed. So did IMS NAGATO. Most of the other ships suffered little if any significant damage. It took "stacking the deck" by detonating the second bomb under the anchored ships to produce the carnage. And even then NAGATO didn't sink immediately.

You are correct. The ships had their bottoms knocked out beneath them and they were so radioactive under the Baker shot. The USS Saratoga still can be observed from the sky.

But how much of the "wetware" on board - the animals - survived?  An intact ship crewed by corpses is, nonetheless, destroyed for all practical purposes.

They put sheep,pigs and other animals incuding biological warfare agents. The animals died of the heat blast and radiation.
