The Russians claim to be near perfecting a nuclear propulsion system for cruise missiles that will give unlimited range and maneuverability. If this system could be miniaturized and fitted to AA missiles how would it change air warfare? www.rt.com/russia/451659-burevestnik-mi ... tor-tests/

Suppose you have a magic missile can fly 10,000 km at 5,000 km/h. And you have means to track airborne targets on the other side of the world, and to guide your missile on to it. It'd take hours from launch to hopefully a hit. It is a dumb idea.
