Description
English: LGM-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. This is a long exposure photo showing the paths of the multiple re-entry vehicles deployed by the missile. One Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons which is equivalent to around 400 kilotons of TNT.
עברית: ניסוי בטיל 'הפיסקיפר' האמריקאי בקווג'לין שבאיי מרשל
צילום בחשיפה ארוכה המראה את מסלוליהם של גופי חדירה שהתפצלו מטיל מרובה ראשי נפץ. טיל אחד שכזה יכול לשאת עד 10 ראשי נפץ גרעיניים שכל אחד מנוהג עצמאית למטרתו. כל אחד מראשי הנפץ הגרעיניים עוצמתו עשויה להגיע עד פי-25 מעוצמת הפצצה שהוטלה על הירושימה, עוצמה השווה לכ- 400 קילוטון TNT
