Nuclear Weapons

Image 13 of 13


This photo shows a submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) surfacing. Missiles like these are capable of traveling nearly 4,000 miles. In an all out nuclear war, most of the nuclear payloads would likely be carried by ICBMs, due to their extreme range, accuracy, and the difficulty in defending against them.
