    The most efficient way so far seems to be to just let Russia try to build it

      This. Testing this thing probably killed more Russian scientists than HATO has. Reading the articles gave me flashbacks to reading about the soviet space program

    How would one stop a cruise missile?
    How is this even a question when we can shoot down ballistic missiles going at terminal velocities of mach 3.

    Time is a fat squirrel.

    >The proposed use for nuclear-powered ramjets would be to power a cruise missile, called SLAM, for Supersonic Low Altitude Missile. In order to reach ramjet speed, it would be launched from the ground by a cluster of conventional rocket boosters. Once it reached cruising altitude and was far away from populated areas, the nuclear reactor would be made critical. Since nuclear power gave it almost unlimited range, the missile could cruise in circles over the ocean until ordered "down to the deck" for its supersonic dash to targets in the Soviet Union. The SLAM as proposed would carry a payload of many nuclear weapons to be dropped on multiple targets, making the cruise missile into an unmanned bomber. On May 14, 1961, the world's first nuclear ramjet engine, "Tory-IIA", mounted on a railroad car, roared to life for a few seconds. Three years later, "Tory-IIC" was run for five minutes at full power. Despite these and other successful tests, the Pentagon, sponsor of the "Pluto project", had second thoughts. The weapon was considered "too provocative", and it was believed that it would compel the USSR to construct a similar device, against which there was no known defense. Intercontinental ballistic missile technology had proven to be more easily developed than previously thought, reducing the need for such highly capable cruise missiles. On July 1, 1964, seven years and six months after it was started, "Project Pluto" was canceled.

    The same way other nukes were prevented from being used - if someone threatens to nukes you, you say you'll nuke them right back. They dont want to get nuked, so they dont nuke you in the first place.
    Just like the Poseidon nuclear torpedo, this thing literally brings no new gamechanging capabilities compared to good old ICBMS.
    Only reason russia is developing it is that despite all their chest puffing and huffing about Sarmat they are scared shitless of burger ABM capabilities. They are afraid that US might still be able to at least partially negate their first strike while they would still have to eat the full response.
    Its magical thinking. Like they were preparing for a gunfight and then started to think that their opponent might be a wizard that can stop gunpowder from igniting.
    So they grab a crossbow and wave it around bragging how they outsmarted the evil warlock and negated his gun-stopping magic with their new gamechnging weapon. And ignoring that the warlock is still holding his fully functional rifle.

    You ideally shoot it down over northern Canada, with an AMRAAM fired from an F-15EX.

    The tricky part with a nuclear powered cruise missile is that it has unlimited range and can plot any kind of course no matter how labarinthine, it could fly around the entire planet to come from a different angle.
    Also, like bombers and CMs in general, it would arrive hours after the initial land based ballistic missile exchange.
    Whatever you have to defend against it; early warning systems, fighter squadrons, SAM batteries, needs to survive the initial strike.

    Ultimately, like many of Russia's new generation of weapons, this is a highly strategic system that is focused more on assured second strike capability and hedges against possible developments in US ABM and IRBM capability.
    This ironically shows Russia's preparations for a world where they don't have nuclear primacy.
    Russia cannot hope to compete in a three way nuclear arms race with the PRC and the US.

    slow low speed optimised aero surfaces) high range missile - would you launch it hours before icbm strike (risking element of surprise) or after it?
    does even russias icbms work at all if they need to develop something like this?
    plus detecting this would be really easy as it will spew very distinct radiation signature...

    MANPADs, SPAAGs, etc will take it down.
    There's really no point in it unless your nuclear triad is limping (e.g. no advantage over a sub launched cruise missile, lots of cons)
