The Manhattan Project provided a fission weapon in 1945 that was over a thousand times more powerful per unit weight than a TNT warhead of equivalent weight . The H-bomb fusion weapons that followed carried an explosive yield a thousand times more powerful than the earlier A-bombs . This millionfold increase in explosive capability between 1945 and 1950 was augmented by the first-time capability to deliver such weapons across intercontinental distances by aircraft and missiles.
