Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The Russians have their Mnogo Nukes. The Americans ensure Peace Through Superior Firepower via their 5,113 nuclear warheads (September 2009), of which about half are in storage.

As the most powerful military on the planet and one of the most frequently appearing in fiction, the Yanks With Tanks have their most capable weapons easily to hand. The fact they like to Nuke'Em helps.

We're again breaking down delivery systems via type. The US defence industry has merged and de-merged a great deal since 1945 (Rockwell and McDonnell Douglas are now part of Boeing, Northrop and Grumman merged a while back, Lockheed and Martin-Marietta did as well, and several other examples) and so manufacturer names aren't included.

Welcome to a world of Titans, the deadly Davy Crockett and some concepts:
