More FAQs in:
Generally speaking, there are two types of nuclear missile threats: Strategic nuclear missiles and tactical nuclear weapons.
- Strategic nuclear weapons are long-range missiles that can reach a target between 3,500 and 9,000 miles away.
- Tactical nuclear weapons are generally considered as short-range missiles, capable of hitting targets 300 to 400 miles away. Medium-range missiles (somewhere more than short-range, but less than long-range) are sometimes called tactical or non-strategic.
