Description: The W76 is a 100 kiloton thermonuclear warhead developed by the United States in the 1960s and the 1970s as the replacement for the W68 nuclear warhead. The United States produced several thousand W76 warheads between 1978 and 1987 with about 2,000 upgraded nukes to remain in service after 2019 when the modernization program is expected to conclude. These weapons are deployed by Trident I and Trident II ballistic missiles. The upgraded W76-1/Mk4A nukes will remain in service with the Strategic Forces of the United States and the United Kingdom in the 2020s.
