you wouldn't need to add explosives you can see the impacts the make, you could just put a tungsten dart inside the reentry body
there is various ideas and programs that are basically like the so called PGS system( prompt global strike)
that is when you would add a normal bomb or just make the reentry body very heavy and just use the kinetic energy to hit any target anywhere in the
world in less than a hour from order to impact
the problem with that the other side wouldnt know what was in the missile as it would fly the same path as a nuclear armed missile rather than a
single HE warhead.
i remember seeing them being used with a lower trajectory so that way the other side wouldnt think it was a normal ICBM
but now i think they are going to rely on hypersonic weapons launched in the air or even manned aircraft that could drop munitions and there would be
no nervous Russians thinking we are starting a nuclear war
in a nuclear war the first shot would be very high altitude and very high yield to use the EMP to knock out everything electronic on the ground that
isn't hardened and than the rest come.
