The exercise simulated a nuclear swap between the US and Russia
“The United Circumstances’ reluctance to confirm the formula gives us more reason to believe that Washington persist ins drawing up scenarios involving the use of nuclear weapons.”
Discussing the simulation, a US explanation official explained: “They attacked us with a low-yield nuclear warhead, and in the assuredly of the exercise we simulated responding with a nuclear weapon.”
The exercise taken a Russian attack against a NATO target in Europe.

No technicalities were provided about the type of target selected by the US military in retaliation.
In November, a simulation run by US-based muse on tank RAND considering the outcome of a war with Russia and China provided a gloomy prognosis for Mr Trump, suggesting the US “gets its ass handed to it” in virtually every plot summary.
Researcher David Ochmanek said: “We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipage.
Countries with nuclear weapons
“We almost always fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary.”
A separate simulation run by researchers at Princeton’s Program on Principles and Global Security in September suggested 34 million people intent likely die within five hours in the event of the use of one so-called tactical or low-yield atomic weapon.
A blog post carried on Princeton’s website said: “This cast is motivated by the need to highlight the potentially catastrophic consequences of current US and Russian atomic war plans.
US President Donald Trump
“The risk of atomic war has increased dramatically in the past two years as the United States and Russia bear abandoned long-standing nuclear arms control treaties, started to broaden new kinds of nuclear weapons and expanded the circumstances in which they power use nuclear weapons.
“This four-minute audio-visual piece is based on self-assured assessments of current US and Russian force postures, nuclear war plans, and atomic weapons targets.
“It uses extensive data sets of the nuclear weapons currently deployed, weapon give overs, and possible targets for particular weapons, as well as the order of battle estimating which weapons go to which quarries in which order in which phase of the war to show the evolution of the nuclear discord from tactical, to strategic to city-targeting phases.”
