            Any dam upstream, as it would still lead to the destruction of the Three Gorges dam. Yeah, it won't be as quick, but they wouldn't have the time to evacuate anyway, so they can just wait for their death.

    Nuke tech peaked with edward teller, the h bomb was not practically useful as a bigger nuke and replace the fat man updated versions

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_6_nuclear_bomb

    since those were too big for missiles and the soviets larped the R-7 and other liquid rockets as nuclear missiles the yanks sperged and rushed tons of invesments.

    Since the yanks made their nuke missiles solid fuel based there is not really probably anything to improve, tough if i would speculate there is probably esoteric tech that few people even know how to maintain so replacing it with a newer easier to maintain is probably the goal, but the overall design is pretty solid.

      It did forever ago. Also the fundamental point of nukes is to not use them so making a better nuke is actually counter productive as it can destabilize the status quo of MAD thereby increasing the odds that somebody actually uses them.

      Pax Atomica

      Unless you want to go full x-ray laser we’ve peaked. Once there’s a proper detection and interception system deployed you might see innovation. But frankly, if you figure out how to detect and intercept a nuclear strike perfectly or with even 80%, you’d keep that a close secret. It being public would remove MAD, allow adversaries to pursue both their own system and a method for defeating yours, etc etc

      The current innovation is in the warheads themselves, e.g. miniaturization, timed/programmable fuses, etc. It's possible to build grenade-sized warheads in the kiloton range with the efficiency (%of fissile material successfully ignited) of cutting-edge triggers/ignition systems.

        During the STAR WARS era the US decided the only real way to rapidly adjust to incoming warhead trajectories was to have some sort of 6-axis thruster for an intercepting rocket. This is testing the 6-axis maneuver vehicle. To my knowledge it has never been deployed anywhere, but presumably the tech fed a lot of other projects.

    In terms of the tech behind the warhead itself, yeah it’s peaked, the real expense comes with designing and building a rocket that works 99% of the time, the guidance system, and the decoys.

      I would say smaller is the only way forward, and that's a big if given the W-91. The whole point of the W-88 was an aspheric primary for further miniaturization, but God knows what the hydrodynamic shock simulations at Sandia/LANL have cooked up. The real modernization is for "wooden nukes", aka far less maintenance. Supposedly nano particulate halogen impregnated explosives are a large part of that. Also, why modernize when you can zap a motherfricker with a relativistic beam of positronium?

    with a lot of technology in general once you make a breakthrough you can only refine and tune that so much. Same deal with guns *mostly* being the same basic shit since gas operation and smokeless powder were developed/refined in the late 19th century. Many designs in current use by militaries around the world including the M2 Browning are over 100 years old now. We will most likely have B-52 airframes built in the 1960s still flying in the 2060s.

    You people are all fricking moronic.

    MAD is over. The USA won. The primary reason that, even this being the case, the US will not perform a first-strike nuclear attack is twofold: we maintain overwhelming military superiority in both nuclear and conventional capability AND the economic damage would far outweigh any benefits.

    This new missile is just a reliability and accuracy iteration of the technology, and probably incorporates new safety and triggering mechanisms updated for modern communications paradigms.

    It's basically a full rebuild of the mm3. New launch facilities,new reentry vehicle (modular so possibly a MARV) and new easier to maintain missile and engine.
    (It's going to be more accurate too.)

    Silo based leg of nuclear triad is the most protected and fastest responding leg. we're getting a new ground based mid course missile too(gives the missile field more time to launch but not complete immunity from a large attack)
