US deploys new sub-launched, low-yield nuclear missile to counter Russia

The US military deployed a new submarine-launched low-yield nuclear weapon to counter the threat posed by Russia’s arsenal of smaller tactical nukes. The W76-2 ballistic missile warhead is a modification of the pre-existing W-76 warhead, which is used to arm submarine launched Trident II (D-5) missiles. The weapon ensures a catastrophic, yet targeted nuclear response option.
