What does this weapon icon mean/is?

For Boggy B and his mates. If they existed, of course.

I... think those are fins on the bottom, so it's just a really fat, weird-looking bomb facing warhead-up?

The yellow is an explosion, and I guess the yellow patches on the bomb represent rays of light pointing towards you. Take away the yellow, and you have a fat black bomb that's shaped like some actual nukes of days gone by, eg. the Mark 4.

It does look like a red button on top for detonating the device. Seems like a silly place to put it, unless you plan on having someone ride the bomb Strangelove-style. :P

Well, that explains a lot, and my question of all time since i met the second generation of worms is, why they changed that weapon? it's really the same thing, that icon looks even cooler than the indian nuclear test and does almost the same :P
