U.S. Military Creates ‘Multi-Object Kill Vehicle’ to Destroy Enemy Nukes

Space.com reports that “defensive weapons that can intercept and destroy enemy missiles before they can harm the United States or its allies have been a key part of military strategy for decades, but the rules of the game are changing.”

“More countries have or are developing long-range missile technology, including systems that can carry multiple warheads, known as Multiple Independently Targetable Re-entry Vehicles (MIRVs) and/or decoys.”

“‘Both China and Russia possess the MIRV capability for their ballistic missiles. In 2014, reports confirmed that Iran too had developed Multiple Re-entry Vehicles (MRVs) for their ballistic missiles. Cold War literature suggests that MIRVs are first strike weapons and could be strategically destabilizing,’ independent consultant Debalina Ghoshal wrote in a June 2016 report for the Federation of American Scientists.”
