The aim of this page is to find the area (near-total fatalities) that an explosion should cover to reach certain AP tier.

Using the formula from the explosion yield calculations page, R = Y^(1/3)*0.28, where Y is the yield in kilotons and R the radius in km, so that:

  • Yield*2 ==> Radius*2^(1/3) = Radius*1.26
  • Yield*5 ==> Radius*5^(1/3) = Radius*1.71
  • Yield*10 ==> Radius*10^(1/3) = Radius*2.1544

Since the calculator didn't give results below 1 kiloton, the above would be useful; using these lists we will find the required area.

Nuclear Explosions

These values can only be used when the detonation has a nuclear origin. See Explosion Yield Calculations for more information.

    • You should contact some calc group members.
    • Just did a little test and the results aren't exact. A 100 kiloton explosion in the calculator produces a 1.3 km explosion whereas you n...

    • You should preferably inform the other calc group members about this via their message walls. Likely Kaltias and DontTalkDT as well.
    • I already use this formula for explosions where the nearby buildings aren't significantly damaged.
