Time for some quick and terrifying math!

Approximate yield of the Hiroshima atomic bomb: 15 kilotons
Approximate yield of the United States' W88 warhead: 475 kilotons
Number of independently-targetable W88 warheads per Trident II missile: 8
Number of Trident II missles on an SSBN submarine: 24

475*8*24 = 91.2 megatons of destructive force, enough to destroy about 6000 cities the size of Hiroshima in 1945, all on-board one submarine about the same size as the Washington Monument.

I feel safer now, how about you? *shiver*
