The major nuclear powers have used ICBM’s as the mainstay of their defence strategy for 60 year or so and even built some form of anti-ballistic shield to protect against. But in the last decade or so a new type of hypersonic missiles have been developed that promises to make ICBM’s redundant but will they just fuel a new arms race as everyone one struggles to make them work in a reliable manner. So how do they compare to the decades-old tech of ICBM’s and are they any better?
