I'm more concerned about Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse. If you have only one or two weapons, a high altitude burst is much better value. Better to disable most of Europe's electronic infrastructure than destroy one City.
It  would, of course, get the offender turned, as one of you guys put it, 'into a sheet of glass' but does deterrence work on these smaller nations?

I do keep a Scintillation Counter here but that's mostly to show people that sitting next to a WWII cockpit instrument was a risky business.

I got this and think the current world situation may very well dictate
that tech people like us should have a good radiation detector just in
case some dictator goes off the deep end.  This stuff may get very
scarce if too many people want it.
