Tech ladder for nuclear weapons

Recommended Posts

STAFF NOTE: Please consult with staff before planning or writing based on the following guidelines. Revisions and additions are being made. You are solely responsible for any retconning that may be requested by staff if you pursue development based on the following post.



Hello community. I would like to ask your help in creating a believable technology ladder for the development of nuclear weapons.

Since physics is far from my specialty, your help will be of great value. This is what I have so far.

For nuclear energy

Note: you are required to find a supplier in order to build nuclear weapons. This way you also need to cooperate, preventing lone-wolfs.

  • reactor design
  • nuclear materials supplier (not you)
  • nuclear refinery
  • nuclear energy
  • nuclear-waste management (and all protests that come with it)

For long-range missiles

Note: the development of ICBM's is tied into having part of the space program ladder.

  • flying bomb
    • autopilot
    • catapult test
    • prototype test
  • strategic bomb
    • gyroscope autopilot
    • advanced weather tests
    • prototype test
  • ballistic bomb
    • multi-stage flight
    • launch computer
    • prototype test
  • ICBM
    • guidance system computer
    • prototype test
    • SSBN
