And let's keep in mind the ultimate weapon of a terrorist is a nuclear warhead on a missile.
The high explosive fragmentation warhead is fitted with an active laser proximity fuse.
a nuclear warhead
Yesterday, the Pentagon claimed success for its missile shield, after an interceptor missile hit a dummy warhead over the Pacific.
And to be confident in their use, you would need to have tested both the warhead and the missile itself.
On explosion, the warhead produces a great fragmentation effect and shock wave.
The missile uses a tandem warhead , which can defeat modern armor and reactive panels.
The missile warhead incorporates a dynamically compensated shaped and copper lined charge.
I don't believe that they could put a warhead on a missile that could reach the continental United States.
This is kind of hard to prove, but weapons capable of delivering warheads 113 miles is pretty scary.
