Operation Guardian 1980-1981

Serie på 16 underjordiske amerikanske  atomvåbenforsøg i Nevada forsøgsområdet i den anden del af den kolde krig.
Oplysninger om operationen er stadig skjulte som klassificeret eller maskeret information.
According to Margaret Thatcher Foundation's, Margaret Thatcher's files as Prime Minister, 1981 'even includes outline details of British nuclear tests, done at American sites at what must surely have been a bargain price (5m for our place on the 1981 programme). The oddly named "Hurdle Prime" provided us with the data needed to design the basic warhead, detonated at 1510 London time 17 December 1980, while MT and senior colleagues sat in a Cabinet Committee meeting at No.10.
Atomvåbenforsøgene kom efter Operation Tinderbox og før Operation Praetorian.
Atomvåbenforsøgene omfattede / The nuclear weapons tests included
