Little boy used 1945 technology, it weighed 9,700 pounds and produced a
yield of 15,000 tons of TNT. The W45 warhead used 1965 technology and had
the same yield as little boy but weighed only 400 pounds.  The B41 warhead
used 1960 technology and weighed slightly more than little boy,10,500 pounds
, but was 1,500 times as powerful; the USA had 500 of these monsters in its
stockpile during the Cuban Missile crisis and lots of other nuclear bombs

The USSR had similar stuff in 1962.
