Reportedly, for the first time in nearly two decades, the United States is now preparing to transfer nuclear weapons to the United Kingdom in order to counter the prospect of Russian aggression engulfing Europe.

During the Cold War, nuclear weapons were stored at RAF Lakenheath by the United States. B61-12 nuclear gravity bombs, which are more than three times more powerful than the one that was detonated on Hiroshima, are now anticipated to be stationed at the base.

The british outlet The Telegraph reportedly obtained confirmation that the move would be happening

Small nuclear weapons capable of being transported by F-16s, F-15s, and F-35s are reportedly part of the plan.

According to the report, the United States Department of Defense has placed an order for new base equipment, which includes ballistic shields intended to safeguard military personnel against assaults on “high value assets.”

Reportedly, Russia has issued a threat of escalation should the United States return the nuclear weapons to the United Kingdom.

A Pentagon spokesman informed the newspaper that the organization would not affirm or deny the decision to return nuclear weapons to the United Kingdom.
