Interesting you mention the Pershing 2 - a system which was *disabled* under the INF treaty , nearly 15 years ago.


i am fully aware of the math involved when calculating wave fronts / sypethetic wave formation and relevant calculations - not that i can do them , as that is what *super computers* are for.

you are wrong about sub kt weapons : the prompt radiation effcts from a 0.1 kilton warhead are negliable at 1000m - the heat/blast are also negligable beyond a few hundred meters, with fatal distance - the `Little Feller` shots at Nevada tested the warhead - little feller 1 was actually fired from the M29 at a range of 1.7 miles (W54 warhead) - operation IVY FLATS ; which incidently was the last atmospheric shots at nevada.

The crater made by a 600KT warhead ground burst is only 64M (give or take a meter) and 640 (ish) M across deep - 64M is not enough for a hard kill , and of course an airburst is a SMALLER crater , but blast/ heat effects over a larger area.

have a read - its very good (and just about spot on as well)
