Several sources in the cannon (I think ) refer to the Michelson (sp?)Thernonuclear device, a.k.a. MTD, a.k.a PLANET BUSTERS !!!!

Using surplus scout/Courior hulls (generally)these massive (???) bombs would be sent to an enemy world, under robotic control. Once on the ground, they'd pop off destroying the planet.

These ultimate weapons of the 57th century were rated from 1 to A, (based on the size of the planet they could crack) and some were even usabel against gas giants.

Yes, I know his is very seimular to the "stone burner" nuke from Frank Herbert's DUNE.

My question(s) are;

Is this indeed cannon?

Does anyone have any idea for the (CT / HG) stats / Tech Levels of such terrible weapons?
