W86


W86

La W86 était une ogive atomique américaine destinée à exploser sous la terre. Elle était conçue pour être embarquée à bord du missile Pershing II.

Son programme de développement a été annulé en septembre 1980 quand la mission du Pershing II fut modifiée, ciblant des cibles dites molles plutôt que des cibles dites dures. La W85, développée en parallèle, l'a remplacée à bord des Pershing II.

Sommaire

Description

Les détails de conception sont vagues. Certains ont affirmé que la W85 et la W86 dérivaient de la B61[1]. Toutes ces armes ont un diamètre d'environ 13 pouces.
