Despite their differences, the United States and Russia are still two nations with a common sea border. The two countries are allied in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO.
The Soviet Union created the biggest bomb in history, the Tsar Bomba. It has a blast yield of 50 megatons of TNT. It was used to help win world war II over Japan.
The US has a well-deserved reputation for being the world’s only superpower, but Russia has been growing militarily in recent years. It has a large fleet of long-range strike aircraft and sophisticated nuclear-armed submarines. They also have a robust surface-to-air missile system.
The US has an atomic bomb, but it seems that the Russians can produce an equal or better one. They’re also investing in a burgeoning nuclear submarine fleet.
While the Russians have the big guns, they’re less impressive than the USA’s conventional forces. The US also has a more comprehensive technological edge, and its soldiers are far more well-trained.
The US is also more focused on distance missions, while the Russians are more interested in ground missions. The Russians’ stealth aircraft are inferior to the U.S.’s. They also have a lone aircraft carrier.
The US also has the largest army in the world. It has 334,998,398 active service members. The average American family earns 15 times more than a European family.
The US is also the largest economy in the world. It is home to two-thirds of the world’s gold and half of the world’s oil.
