If this weapon is normal, it is proportional
Discussion: Mark IX
It seems unbelievable to me that the warhead detonates when shaken because something like this is prevented by fuses in reality .-- Marlo 17:11, Jan. 2, 2008 (CET)
- But this weapon is a special variant against the priors. The aim was to prevent a prior from deactivating it, so that the weapon had to be protected from any kind of telekinetic manipulation. However, this mode is likely only possible by activating the weapon.
- For the series variant of the warhead in combat, however, I would say that such an explosive variant is rather unrealistic for reasons of storage and transport to the combat zone alone. - Briggs 22:34, Jan. 2, 2008 (CET)
Tell me, does anyone here have any idea how much gigatons of explosive power this part has? I would be interested in that.

- 26 megatons of light energy (mentioned in SG1_10x03SG110x03 The Pegasus Principle) - Philipp[ bureaucrat ·Disk · ]. 3:04 p.m., Sep 22 2009 (CEST)
26 megatons is far too little. Even the Tsar bomb already has 53 MT. The explosive power of a Mark XI is around 100-150 gigatons. - 188.8.131.52 13:36, Jan. 13, 2010 (CET)
I'm sorry to have to disappoint you, but the weapon has ONLY 26 gigatons.
Somehow the explosion radius can't be right:
- The so-called Tsar bomb had a destruction radius of 35 km with a TNT equivalent of approx. 57 MT.
- With a TNT equivalent of 26,000 MT, the Mark IX has a destruction radius of approximately 160 km.
So even though Mark IX has an explosive force 456 times greater, the radius of destruction is only 4.57 times as large. I know this is a pome fruit comparison , but it looks like someone has made a mistake of two decimal places. --Mk XIV 12:01, Aug 8, 2012 (CEST)
- I know the reason for this disagreement. From an explosive force of more than 1000 MT TNT equivalent, an explosion behaves differently than normal, since the density in the fireball then corresponds to the density of the upper layers of the atmosphere (of an earth-like planet). Therefore, the fireball and mushroom cloud, and with it a large part of the destructive power, simply escape into space. The radius of action of the explosion then no longer increases with the force of the explosion, but shrinks again. Since the Mark IX is now SIGNIFICANTLY above 1 GT, this change in the explosion radius is not only possible, but highly probable.
- However, I don't think the authors have done the math. --Simeon 18:19, Nov. 18, 2012 (CET)
- Furthermore, the explosive force is not proportional to the radius, since such strong bombs are detonated in several stages and therefore do not result in a proportional increase in the radius. -Octavius 1200 09:10, 19 Nov. 2012 (CET)
