In the US navy, ships are numbered with a prefix indicating the type of ship. BB=Battleship and CV=Aircraft Carrier. CVN if nuclear-powered. So that's where those letters come from.

blind nuking : nuking enemy units (usually silos) without knowing the exact position
sixpack: a tight cluster of six silos, three in a row
carpet bombing: seanuking a large target area at nearly the same time with numerous nukes

Has anybody mentioned triangulation yet? The art of locating silos via their AA fire while not actually seeing the silos themselves.

*friendly void - pausing a game until the opponent left the game by his own will; kindly chat, jokes and pseudo arguments can be use in an attempt to convince the victim to agree with any made up reasoning.
