... deployed in 1958, this upgraded version of the 'Nike' anti-aircraft missile, was based around major cities and vital installations. It used a nuclear warhead. Destroying incoming Soviet bombers that wanted to drop big H-Bombs on American cities was a 'must-do' proposition. The nuke warheads could be 'dialed' from 2- 20 kilotons and their detonation at high altitudes virtually negated any fallout threat. Just don't look up! At a speed of close to 3,000 mph and a max. altitude of 20 miles these suckers were fast and rude!
... yet another 'out-there' proposal for a Supersonic Intercontinental Bomber. The reference to HEF fuel was the long-sought, but never fulfilled, Boron enhanced 'high energy fuel'. Also known as 'Zip Fuel'.
