Can someone give me some general information on MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) Theory? It was a dominant concept in the cold war pretty much revolving around assumed total annihilation in the event the US/USSR directly fought, but if you have anything interesting to say, mention it.

    the USSR and the US never actually fought against each other in any type of battle, the only "battles" the two super powers ever fought were the Space Race and the Nuclear Race.

    I'm entirely aware of that. I'm asking for information on MAD. This very, very loosely involves MAD itself, but, nah, i'm good on the Cold War stuff for the most part. And actually, the USSR contributed Russian pilots to fly North Korean MiGs, or just had Russian MiGs have their insignia painted over, during the Korean War.

    Russia had many more Submarine-based nuclear ICBMS, but for some reason (impracticality?) had less than half as many long-range bombers armed with nuclear bombs. In the ICBM Silo front, the us straight up out classed the USSR.
