  • Size of nuclear warhead on SCUD B

    What was the size of nuclear warheads on SCUD B during the soviet era ?
    I've read as small as 5 KT , is that true ?
    and largest was 80 KT ?
    Thanks

    From what I remember from a very boozy Christmas cocktail party long ago at the Cabinet Office talking to the guy who was responsible for sourcing the UK's nuclear warheads there was a trade off between bang and distance - ie depends how far you want your missile to reach. Mind you it was a long time ago and a very boozy do so I could be wrong.
