The U.S. Navy initiated the development of low-yield nuclear warheads in response to Russian developments, reads the message published on the website of the U.S. Naval Institute. 

‘Each service will field some sort of hypersonic capability to contribute to conventional prompt global strike – the idea that the military should be able to hit any target on the planet within about an hour. The Navy is developing the hypersonic glide body that all the services will use, as well as a booster to launch the Navy’s weapon off a yet-to-be-determined platform,’ Vice Adm. Johnny Wolfe said.

‘In collaboration with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), SSP was given funding at the start of this fiscal year to develop and field a small number of “76-2” low-yield weapons, which “will be a direct counter to what Russia believes they’ve got to date that we do not have,' Wolfe added. 

As we reported earlier, President of the United States Donald Trump claimed to reporters that he would pull the US out the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), since Russia transgressed it, and never provided a report.
