Not unprecedented. We were actually working on a nuclear rocket powered munitions delivery system in the 60's. It was designed to be launched and deploy its munitions, either nuclear or conventional at predetermined spots globally. Since it was nuclear powered it could stay up indefinitely. It was about the size of a large locomotive.

Development was stopped in the late 60s. It seems that they are just catching up!!
