Was the bomb that eradicates the town (Ogden Marsh, IA) at the end of the film really supposed to have been a nuke? Did the blast look like that of a nuke?

Or was it supposed to be some other type of ordnance? A MOAB, perhaps?

I thought it was a MOAB…….but hey they're Crazies!

I always thought Nuke. However, a MOAB would make more sense.

It was a nuke. Early in the movie they show a B-52 taking off in preparation to fry the infected site. Mr Romero was a film maker, not an ordinance expert. I don't even think they had MOABs back then anyway. Let's face it, the army was equipped with M-1 Carbines and the B-52 was stock footage. Not much of a budget.

@CaptainBeefheart—I think he is talking about the remake. I just looked it up and did not realize Romero had done an original of this movie. I will have to watch that.

Mea culpa-didn't know there was a remake! Two sides of the same coin.

It was a nuke. Winds that high and out that far would be hallmarks of a nuclear blast, plus my guess is that they would think the heat would kill off the virus in that area. The original by Romero is OK, but don't get your hopes up too high.

Looks like a classic nuke from the images y'all provided.
