“I’m always scratching my head in amazement how we keep insisting on smaller warheads while our enemies are going supersized.”
Oddly you are in error. Four 250 kiloton weapons properly targeted will do far more damage that one 1 megaton weapon. It all has to do with the area of a circle and distance.
Back in the seventies on occasion I would fly over Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth in my aircraft at night. It was legal and I was under positive control from ATC. It was rather eerie to look down and see all those B52s on the ground with flood lights all around them. They were loaded with nukes and ready to go in an instant.
Totally agree. We did way more than our share and they treat us like a red-headed stepchild. Let them deal with Russia on their own. They'll soon find out Russia is not their friend.
This fricking author wants to become a “writer.”
JUST TELL ME THE DMND FACTS, don’t embellish this crap with you flowery stinking words.
Wow. I’ll bet. From air at night I’ll bet they looked like big, dark shapes like vultures on the ground, wings spread, with ants moving all around them!
I know about that, as that is the principle behind the MIRV delivery system, but many people didnt get the circular pattern kills benefits it gives.
But nevertheless the latest versions are a pitiful 60KT vs the 340KT, and that's my ire.
