I’m curious, is it possible to estimate accuracy?

Gotta lot of leeway with a nuke

Yeah. How accurate do they have to be? Coastal regions are pretty densely populated. Lots of important bases and ports. πŸ˜¬πŸ˜•

No, not unless we knew where they were aiming.

I’m not an expert but for context, Trident D5 accuracy CEP is 90meters. These weapons aren’t cheap & around cities is relatively empty space

How accurate does a nuke need to be? They're able to consistently drop missiles in the Sea of Japan in roughly the same area

Indeed. What sort of payload at those sort of ranges?

And you've hit on a key question in the old counter-force vs. counter-value debate: What's your objective? Determines the accuracy you need.

Why? We've had Russian and Chinese missiles aimed at us for decades. And NK realizes an attack on us will result in wiping them off the map

I know but their leaders/gov more stable

Putin scares me far more than Kim Jon Un. NK wants the deterrent to keep the US from invading. Putin wants to take down the West.
