Fun fact: with life-2048 DEUT as the fusion fuel, only about 40% of the bomb's energy comes from the fusion reaction - just like a real boosted fission device!
The benefit is in the massive neutron flux it creates at the moment of greatest compression of the pit, which increases the percentage of plutonium that fissions, making the weapon both cleaner and more powerful.
@jk Thanks! There's a DLAY element, essentially a krytron, which accepts a signal and holds it for a specified number of ticks but it's indestructible and I wanted the whole thing to disappear :)
