This badge was made and used circa1980-1986. Mutually Assured Destruction is a military theory claiming that that full-scale use of nuclear power in an attack would anihilate both sides involved. It it based on the idea that if a country owning nuclear weaponry is attacked, it would retaliate with the same means. The result of such hypothetical hostilities would be total destruction of both parties. The doctrine also holds that neither party would dare to attack first, therefore an equilibrium is suposedly maintained. This doctrine was applied during the Cold War.
