Nuclear artillery is a subset of limited-yield tactical nuclear weapons, in particular those weapons that are launched from the ground at battlefield targets. Nuclear artillery is commonly associated with shells delivered by a cannon, but in a technical sense short-range rockets or missiles are also included…

And simply put; They wipe out divisions of men, tanks and artillery in one shot…

Russia has about, 9,000 to 10,000 of these tactical nuclear weapons (still operational,) sometimes called battlefield nuclear weapons. You use these for short distances. They can be fired; you don’t need an airplane or a missile to send them to the target (though a plane can drop them or a missile can deliver them.) They can be fired from artillery. But they are nuclear bombs, just small versions of the big ones. They’re just as radioactive as a large nuke. They’ve never been used in actual battles, but since Russia has about 10,000 usable tactical nuclear weapons and America has about 400 to 500 of them. There is a huge difference in battlefield power. Russia’s military doctrine (updated several years ago) clearly says that if Russia is threatened by overwhelming conventional forces, they will use tactical nukes. This is directed at NATO and the resource hungry Western Empire…

These weapons were not discussed by the U.S. and Russia in the nuclear talks, or should I say they were discussed and it was decided to ignore these type weapons. Russia will not get rid of her only defense against a encroaching west that lies…

So tell me again why we (Western Empire) are play a game of “Wanna War,” with the Russian Bear?

I always say, “Too many Hitlers and Napoleons in western politics and they all want their war!”

I promise you that Russians would deliver these weapons by hand if that is what it would take to stop the west from invading her. The people are that fearless, compared to the western counterpart…

P.S: I want you to realize that ocean battleships do not have to be hit by a nuke, aircraft not hit by a nuke,  the tsunami and or shock waves alone will sink all ships and send all aircraft to the ground for vast distances, a nuclear war is a lose lose for all involved and a bigger lose lose for the whole world…
