Usa Vs Russia
The United States and Russia have both a powerful military and both are developing weapons that do not fit within the current arms control framework or regulations. This is a dangerous situation for both countries as it puts them at risk of a major war that would be catastrophic to the planet.
America vs Russia
The US is one of the world’s top military powers and has an overwhelming advantage over Russia in terms of technology, resources and the ability to project power around the globe. However, this does not mean that a conflict between the two nations will always be fought in a toe to toe manner.
In fact, according to the best military analysis, a conventional battle between the US and Russia is unlikely. This is due to geography, politics and terrain that inevitably give one side an edge over the other.
A major war between the US and Russia that involved nuclear weapons would have catastrophic consequences for both sides. In order to understand how this might play out, SGS conducted a simulation to determine the effects of an escalating war between the US and Russia using realistic nuclear force postures, targets and fatality estimates.
This simulation was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy, National Security Strategy Center and the NUKEMAP program at SGS. It is based on data from a variety of sources and is presented in a number of ways, including animated graphics and sound.
