Nuke

A Nuclear device. Can be air (bomb), artillery (gun, missile, rocket) or indeed suitcase delivered, which is a nice way of putting it as you'd expect something that you don't want as much as one of these, to be 'dumped' not 'delivered'.

Latest thinking is to deliver lots of little Nukes to lots of little, and not so little, targets through the benefits of MIRV Warheads.

Also known among the troops as a 'Bucket of Sunshine'.
