Here's a great link where you can see what the effects would be, based on where you are. The most common Russian ICBMs will typically have 4 warheads
each doing about 300KT. You can bet the 4 will overlap the target area as a cluster, so factor that in.
Put in the closest military target near you, and see if you are in a bad place....
You can use this for fallout...
Seems like I may not be as bad off as I thought...even if an older 800KT ICBM hits McDill. Of course, multiple ones would probably be heading to that
target. Of course, if one of the 3.3MT ones hit, I'm still ok if it hits McDill, but if hitting Lakeland...I'm on fire.
I just want to say that if America is hit by a Nuclear missile, it won't just be one, but hundreds, possibly even thousands. You won't make it.
It's that simple
Yep, but even still, I'm surprised at the amount of open area there would be between the blast radii. But, the nuclear winter (if true) would be the
killer, as would the contamination of water and soil. We'd dehydrate and starve if we weren't killed by the blast or radiation.
