Considering how everyone at Pentagon is getting their panties in a bunch it might be decent idea after all. Can't shoot down a torpedo with ABM shields (not that it works but you know...).
And that mini-reactor alone is worth the investment.
Also, this is good thing to have if China starts acting up given the geography.. I don't say they will but contingencies and all that.
No warhead needed. If this reactor is suppose to make it cruise at more than 100km/h it means that every thing around it will be contaminated by huge level of radiation. Just make it cruise around the US and let it poison them slowly.
Warhead is definitely needed, that engine is way too tiny to cause enough pollution
And warheads are infinitely faster and more efficient
