What were the two aotmic bombs nicknames that were dropped on japan?
Hundreds of thousands of bombs were dropped on Japan. Only twoatomic bombs were dropped. As in all warfare, bombing is designedto destroy the enemy's ability to resist.
It was World War 2 and the United States was against Japan. On August 6 and 9 1945 the nuclear weapons were drooped over Hiroshima and Nagasaki under the command of President …Truman.
Answer . The simpelest answer is that the US had two bombs available at that time in history and was seeking the fastest way to end WW2 without invading Japan and risk…ing the tremendous causalties such actions might produce.
the US dropped two atomic bombs on japan: one on Hiroshima, the other on Nagasaki. the bomb dropped on Hiroshima was nicknamed "little boy", and had a long torpedo like shape.… Nagasaki was hit by "fat man," a short, squat bomb that had a slightly oblong sphere shape. I believe they were both plutonium bombs--?
A MK-I uranium gun bomb, codenamed Little Boy . A MK-III plutonium implosion bomb, codenamed Fat Man 21 more implosion bombs were scheduled for production and delivery in …1945 had Japan not surrendered.
Little boy was dropped on Hiroshima and Fat man was dropped on Nagasaki a few days later forcing Japan to surrender.
fatman and little boy. fatman and littleboy
Enola Gay dropped Little Boy over Hiroshima, killing 70,000-130,000 instantly. Bockscar dropped Fat man on Nagasaki killing 45,000. "Little Boy" (Hiroshima )on Monday, August… 6, 1945, "Fat Man"(Nagasaki)on August 9.
The cities of Hiroshima (August 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (August 9, 1945).
The B-29's name was Enola Gay (named after the pilots mother)
The B-29 Bomber named The Enola Gay .
He surrendered. There were plots by the officer corps to keep fighting engineered against the emperor, but he prevailed.
In World War 2
The bombing is still, over 65 years after it happened, a prettycontroversial decision. The official answer is that PresidentTruman ordered the bombings to end the war quickly …and decisively. In the Allied conferences near the end of the war, it was decidedthat the Axis nations needed to fully surrender "unconditionally"in order to prevent another war, as happened after World War I (inthat war, Germany didn't surrender unconditionally- they signed anarmistice and eventually negotiated a treaty. Twenty years later,Germany started an even bigger war). Germany was defeated andsurrendered in early May 1945, but Japan kept fighting. The Allies were winning the war with Japan, but it was bogging downinto a costly, bloody affair. Some examples of the bloodshed- inearly 1945, the Allies had captured the island of Iwo Jima, a tinyisland not far from Japan, at the cost of over 26,000 casualties.Then in the summer of 1945, the Allies suffered over 80,000casualties capturing Okinawa, another tiny island not far fromJapan. So as the Allies closed in on the Japanese home islands, thefighting became fiercer. The Allies were drawing up plans for aninvasion of Japan- since Japan showed no signs of surrendering- andall of the plans predicted massive destruction and millions ofcasualties. Truman and supporters of the decision believe that byunleashing nuclear weapons on Japan, they caused Japan to surrendermore quickly. It's controversial, as mentioned earlier, because it's not totallyclear that it had the intended effect (other factors came intoplay, such as the Soviet Union's declaration of war on Japan), theAllies' role in indirectly encouraging Japan to fight on (via thePotsdam Declaration), and the serious ethical questions regardingannihilating hundreds of thousands of people in the blink of aneye. That's a debate that has raged since before the bombs evenfell. The US did not decide to drop two atomic bombs onJapan, the decision was to drop as many as needed to force Japan tosurrender and we had production plans and facilities to manufactureand drop a total of twenty three atomicbombs on Japan in 1945 alone. It was the Japanese that decidedto surrender and stop it at two bombs . Another thing to remember is that after meeting the strongresistance by the Japanese at the last few islands, the US beganstockpiling chemical weapons (e.g. several types of nervegases, mustard gas, phosgene gas) in preparation for use in theinvasion of Japan if similar resistance was encountered. Evenbefore the decision was made to use the atomic bomb, the US wasalready 100% committed to the use of these chemical weapons.However Japan had already used chemical weapons in China andelsewhere and the Allies had declared such use by Japan to be War Crimes . What might our use of chemical weapons againstJapan be seen as? The atomic bomb was seen as a way out of thisdilemma.
