Why haven't any of the minor powers built a doomsday machine yet? It makes sense to have one.

      A fail-deadly device that automatically triggers the launch of the nations nuclear arsenal to pre-determined targets, without any human intervention. Basically, if anyone dares to do a surprise decapitation strike, retaliation is guaranteed and no one can physically stop it.

      It's a fucking stupid idea for countless reasons.

        Yes, I know the movie, but what is the trigger? Define the condition for the launches

            >>any airspace violation
            a doomer/terrorist could take his 172 and cause nuclear armageddon.
            What if a pilot forgets to radio in the tower?
            launch
            how do you know if it's nuclear or just a rocket going to space, could be easily to disguise one as the other
            >>even a single enemy troop within your border for more than 24 hours
            how would the system even be aware of this?

              The point of the doomsday device is that it destroys EVERYTHING with bombs too large and crude to even launch.

                Literally not possible with current technology, you fucking doomers should actually learn a little science. Bigger nuclear weapons just means more of the energy from the explosion ends up in the stratosphere. That’s why the meme bomb Tsar Bomba was just Russian retardation. Most of it was ejected into the upper atmosphere.

            You know, Russia has a radio station just outside of Moscow that's done absolutely nothing but transmit the same beep at regular intervals since the Cold War. It may of may not be automated, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if that was a fail-deadly trigger.

              You know what ICBMs require so they still work? Money and maintenance, two things that buck broken Russia doesn’t have and can’t do. Some estimates put the failure rate as high as 85%, and that’s just for the rockets to fire, then you have to worry about actually guiding them to their targets and actually exploding. Russias all done.

    Soviet union literally built the strangelove doomsday computer (dead man's switch).

    Best Korea might have one too, but I doubt it.

    Meaningful doomsday machine is at least a bunch of nukes and very expensive. Destroying Russia, the US, China, and Europe requires tons of nukes. The real doomsday machine will be when Israel steers a meteor into orbit and threatens to send it down if it is overwhelmed. Yields can be hundreds of thousands of times larger than the largest nuke.

      Sound like the Megalith from AC4 but it's asteroids instead of a meteor

    The deadmans switch concept makes more sense with neutron cobalt tsar bombas. Basically have it bathe the earth in radioactivity for years, you accomplish this by air bursting as many of these bombs as you can into the atmosphere. Doesn't matter where, course you would probably want to try to get them near your enemy at least. With enough of them, it is theoretically possible to kill the vast majority of life on earth with cobalt bombs but as far as anybody knows no one pursued this path, probably because it is utterly psychopathic and self destructive.

    most countries know that if they try and build a nuke the USA will hang them by the balls and fuck their economy for the next century. Hell we even do it when we know they don't have nukes.
