US adds 'low yield' nuclear weapon to its submarine arsenal

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military has deployed a new addition to its nuclear arsenal — a long-range missile armed with a nuclear warhead of reduced destructive power. The so-called low-yield missile joins other, more powerful weapons aboard stealthy submarines prowling the oceans.

The debut deployment aboard long-range submarines, known as boomers, is a landmark in U.S. nuclear weapons policy. It is the first major addition to the strategic nuclear arsenal in recent decades and is a departure from the Obama administration's policy of lessening dependence on nuclear weapons in pursuit of a nuclear-free world. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/us-adds-low-yield-nuclear-weapon-to-its-submarine-arsenal-1.617492
