The Coming Nuclear War : Russia's New Missile
This new weapon is part of a whole series of innovations on both sides, including the Blackswift robot plane and "Rods from God" that guarantee that the Third World War will be something extra special unlike any of you have imagined. On the other hand, we saw it coming at Vault-Co ten years ago. You just step through the consequences in your head and roleplay both sides, you'll see it the same way we did so long ago.
The counter-move for this tactical development will be to salt weapons with nastier payloads that distribute ugly radioactive fallout that lasts for years, not weeks. This is a good time to invest in Cobalt because it's going to become a de facto standard in every single nuclear weapon from now on. There will be an increase in scatter payloads and circle jerks, where combinations of overpressure effects are used to increase the destructive force of airbursts. New advances in computer timing enable even the poorest nation to leverage these effects for efficiency in whatever weapons they are able to produce.
