is it possible to talk about how much extra range a ballistic missile gets if its warhead were to shrink by say 10x?? that is without knowing other details about the missile. For example: Iran claims they have ballistic missiles that can carry a 1500kg warhead up to 2000 KMs.
if the warhead weight were to be reduced to 150kg (10x less) than how much greater range does the weapon get?? sorry I am not physicist so this might sound dumb, but I was thinking if we assume a pure ballistic trajectory (which it may not have) but if we assume that, and if total thrust from the solid rocket is constant but unknown, then maybe its possible to derive a relationship to range but I couldn't do it after a googling these equations for an hour.
Can we say the range would double to 4000 KMs if payload shrunk 10x ??
