Right, but if there is an all out war with russia the whole world will not fair very well, maybe a extinction level event.
I honestly can see a nuclear exchange happening but not a full exchange, what the point of that? the survivors will have nothing to go to, or if they
have shelters on remote islands then what happens when they have no logistical support.
i'd rather be vaporized then have a long slow death by radiation or starvation or illness.
The Kansas thing was clear a demonstration, i'd have to see what time exactly it happened at but i bet it would match up with over flights of russian
and a 50MT dirty bomb seems a bit excessive, there is no use for that. the ICBMs will take out a city just fine and not be radioactive for decades.
in the case Russia pulled thru why would they ruin their new land.
in a limited strike going both ways i think the US would fair much better than Russia is banking on.
not all the weapons i am referring to are aircraft, if we can hit NK nuclear sites with exotic particle beam weapons we can hit russia.
their boost glide weapon caught my attention, i know their AJAX program seemed to be at the very least feasible when it was proposed surly they are
not ahead of us in hypersonics. We currently have aircraft flying that are hypersonic, allegedly.
Last thing russia said they have is a nuclear powered cruise missile, again the US has been there and done that. The us model would fly at mach 3
using the shockwave itself as a weapon and then it would pop out a warhead, the only downside was the nuclear reactor left a deadly trail of heavy
so unless they are planning for all out world ending war i dont get the point of all this. ICBMs do that just fine and we have no where near enough
interseptors to put up a reasonable defense as far as the ABM missile goes.
