For Russia and China to be victorious against the US, they developed new means and capabilities through technological advancements to be victorious on the battlefield. One of the primary capabilities under development is low yield battlefield nuclear weapons LYBNWs to win against the United States in future conflicts. The American near-peer adversaries will launch an LYBNW on American maneuver forces to eliminate them from the battlefield and not elevate the conflict to the all-out nuclear war threshold.
