By the [[31st Centurythirty-first century]] most nuclear weapons were ancient, dating back to the time of the [[Amaris Crisis]] or the early [[Succession Wars (History)|Succession Wars]], but many nations in the Inner Sphere and [[Periphery]] periodically refurbish their stockpiles, if only to maintain a secrete level of readiness or as a last desperate gambit. To actually use a nuclear weapon is considered a "crime against humanity" per Articles I and VI of the Ares Convention, however many governments are willing to look the other way when "extreme circumstances" warrant their use.<ref name=JHS130>''Jihad Hot Spots: 3070'', p. 130</ref>
