A tailless B43 in its special handling bolster, in the background a full clip of similar weapons. Notice the lead tape covering the explosive bolt holding the nose cone in place.  The tank contains dry air, used to fill each sealed unit so that corrosion could not develop while the weapon was in storage or loaded in an "on-alert" aircraft.
