12. A sub-launched

hyper-sonic missile launched from 100 miles out will destroy a major city (like DC) in less than a minute. Because of the the incredible velocity, the kinetic energy is staggering, the effect on par with a small nuke. Now imagine multiple missiles launched at the same target. Imagine multiple missiles at multiple major cities, say DC, Norfolk, Baltimore, NYC, Boston.

You don't have to be terribly accurate with a weapon that can level a square kilometer.
