ICBMs reportedly can strike within a few hundred feet of their targets
after traveling thousands of miles through space. Such accuracy makes
it possible to use a less powerful warhead, yet still be assured of
destroying a target. A single missile can also carry multiple warheads,
each aimed at a different target. A Minuteman III could have 3 nuclear
warheads, as shown here; the Peacekeeper MX had 10.
