but for everyone to be aware of, most of the nuclear warheads in both Arsenals of the US and Russia, are small briefcase size warheads, not even 1MT. They were made for fast and easy delivery into enemy territory, not built to take out large cities, but take out like powerplants, or hit their soft spots. And also they would fit on cruise missiles and naval delivery systems. Silo warheads are much bigger and more devastating, those are the ones used to wipe out large areas and such.
