History lesson guys and gals. The deployment of the Pershing II and the BGM-109G Gryphon Ground Lauched Cruise Missile (which I worked on) was what brought the then Soviet Union to the Intermediate Nuclear Forces table. Our missile systems were so accurate that they were willing to trade their S-20 tactical nuclear missile. The Pershing II question was not if they could hit the Kremlin, but which window.
I have a GLCM t-shirt that reads: BGM-109 Rocks Moscow hit after hit!
