Get Ready Russia, China, Iran and North Korea: America's Missile Defense Program Is Going 'Star Wars'
The Multi-Object Kill Vehicle can simultaneously destroy ICBMs and decoys with a single interceptor.
Anyone who designed it is a egomaniac, messianic psychopath.
It is an attacking system, target of it is to be able to deliver a nuclear strike without any fear of the retaliation.
It is against the nuclear non proliferation treaty as well, because it will increase the number of warheads and delivery vehicles.
Direct consequence of any kill system like this:
-cancellation of any arm reduction treaty
-development and fielding new type of nuclear delivery vehicles
-Military alliance between china/russia (maybe india?)
-Scaling up the Chinese nuclear stockpile and delivery capacity
-Increasing the military spending in chine to 10%, and fielding a military that never been seen in the history ( and making the US military compared to Chinese as big as the UK military is compared the the US )
-Occupation of Taiwan by china
The bare minimum that it will cause is new generation of icbms with multiple bus systems, and increasing the number of ballistic missiles/warheads.
