One ofthem is asmall-scale, heavy-duty nuclear energy unit that can be installed inamissile like our latest X-101 air-launched missile ortheAmerican Tomahawk missile—asimilar type but with arange dozens oftimes longer, dozens—basically anunlimited range. It is alow-flying stealth missile carrying anuclear warhead, with almost anunlimited range, unpredictable trajectory andability tobypass interception boundaries.
