    I would say take advantage of their stupidity and start producing a new ground launched hypersonic scramjet powered missile that could carry one or more nuclear warheads with a flight range of perhaps 5,000km and say four or five 2Kt nuclear warheads the size of 152mm artillery shells that could be released enroute to the target flying at 40km altitude with a small parachute that detonate on impact with the ground. The main missile warhead could be a 300Kt warhead as used in normal cruise missiles and be directed at a city in Europe or Asia while the secondary bombs could be released in flight on the way to that city target or released above the city target to spread the destruction.

    Such a weapon would be a fraction of the cost of a ballistic weapon and yet pose a real challenge to intercept most f the time flying at mach 8 to 12 depending on where you try to intercept it.

    For instance you could launch a missile at London and have the four or five small nukes released over other countries on the way to the target... just to spread the damage.

    Such intermediate range cruise missiles are not restricted by treaty or agreement and while the west is agreement incapable then it makes sense to have the capacity.

    It would also mean long range and sub launched missiles can be concentrated on targets further afield like the US.

    Thunderbird, with its unlimited flight range and low flight profile will also be useful against very long range targets and Poseidon would also have global reach too.

    The difference would be that if needed Russia could launch a hypersonic scramjet powered 5,000km range missile to hit a target in the west with a conventional HE warhead and not necessarily start a nuclear war.

    Maybe obliterating the Eiffel Tower could be the message the west needs to hear.

    The Germans talked about taking down the Crimean bridge, but the Germans really don't have an equivalent target worth hitting... Razz

    As per the latest NATzO summit, NATzO is doubling down in its confrontation against Russia.

    Therefore, its safe to conclude that the current NATzO leadership is not concerned with Russia's current nuke stockpile of 5000+ warheads.

    And since NATzO has expanded its cannon fodder members, its only justified that Russia increase its nuke arsenal by at least no less than 500,000 warheads with each warhead having no less than 1000 megatons of tnt.

    Its important for Russia to achieve not just MAD, but an OVERKILL capability to ensure that no single NATzO cockroach survives in the event of a total war.

    Indeed, the fear of God has to be returned to NATzO clowns. These f*ckers actually think that they can wage a nuclear war on Russia and win.

    These retards have been consuming shit like "the USA will deploy stealth B-2 bombers to drop nuclear bombs on Russia before Russia even knows
    what hit them" for decades. Brain rot from own koolaid drinking.

    Nah

    5000 is enough

    They just need to fire off one to remind folks what is what

    I guess there was and is serious talk in adding to their nuclear weapons doctrine a concept called a "sobering strike". It more and more makes sense. Our grandparents lived and deeply remembered a time when nukes were used, and that generation and ones before knew of war and hard times. This needs to be remembered again.

    The second stage of so called GZUR is planned to be 12-14 Ma

    The beauty is that you can make as many as you like and fit the vast majority with conventional warheads that you can use in a conventional conflict, while nuclear warheads will be easy and cheap to develop with breeder reactors.

    If they come to their senses then the nukes can be used as fuel to generate electricity.

    There is no waste really.

    Intermediate range missiles could be used from a MiG-31 or later MiG-41 to launch low earth orbit satellites.
