Comparison Between USA's And Russia's Deadliest Weapons, Which Country Is Better?

Tension between Russia and the US has reached boiling point following Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

NATO's military commanders have been granted the authority to deploy forces "wherever it is needed" following Russia's latest actions, with the US Secretary of Defense assuring Baltic nations they will not be on their own if faced with security threats from Russia


Let's take a lool at 3 deadly weapons from USA and Russia


USA deadliest weapoms of war

1.The B83 nuclear bomb is the biggest device in the U.S. stockpile. It has a maximum delivery of 1.2 megatons – that’s 1.2 million tons of TNT. This is 80 times more powerful than the bombs dropped on Japan at the end of World War Two.


2.MQ9 Reaper Drone

The Reaper is the largest of the UAV's in the U.S. arsenal with a wingspan of 84 feet, a takeoff weight of 7,000 pounds, a payload capacity of 3,000 pounds and a flight time of 36 hours.


3.Aircraft carriers

There are 11 active aircraft carriers in the US Navy fleet, 10 Nimitz-class and one Ford-class.

While those numbers seem extensive, only three to four are likely to be battle ready at any one moment.

The US Naval Institute showed one carrier, the USS Harry Truman, in the Middle East.

The B83 weighs 1.5 tons and entered service in 1983.


Russia deadliest weapons of war


1.The S-400 Triumf Missile Defense System

The S-400 Triumf SAM system is particularly potent. It can not only take out enemy manned aircraft and some drones, but it can also be used against cruise missiles and ballistic missiles up to 250 miles away depending on the missile used. 


2.Kh-47M2 Kinzhal

The Kremlin likely won’t pass up the opportunity to display the Kh-47M2 Kinzhal, an air-launched, hypersonic, nuclear capable ballistic missile that was first unveiled during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s 2018 state-of-the-nation address. 


3.The best protected tank ever

The tank also features the groundbreaking Afghanit active protection system (APS). It can intercept attacks that are incoming at speeds as high as Mach 5.0. The APS can also interfere with the targeting systems of anti-tank guided missiles, causing them to lose their target.
