One thought on “What new nuclear warhead types should be developed”

  1. I just request all to develope only machanism to safe the air space of the country not by attecking missile development.

    do something innovative like as US has or some other country have the machnism to trace if any thing comes in their air space now to develope some thing which not only trace the object also destroy by not using anti missile that should keep secound option.

    create a net like spider do to make safe air space.

    Well Wisher of the world.
