Just to clarify, the Tsar Bomba was developed as a 100MT, but was dialed down to 50MT - en.wikipedia.org...

Some others give a figure of 57MT. So the videos on YT are not of a 100MT bomb. This new missile delivery system is supposed to have 10 war.s - so I highly doubt they will each have a 50MT yield. I may be wrong in that assumption, but I don't think it makes strategic sense.

The .line should read something like "most sophisticated" and not "Strongest" as it muddies the water. (That's not the OP's fault - ATS rules).



You are rigth, it is "most sophisticated" not strongest. The Tzar bomb tested had 57MT not 100.

Russia with unstoppable Rockets vs China with 5th Gen fighter jets and massive dedicated army vs USA with most likely the most modern Tech army

Would be interesting to see what the outcome of this would be.
