John, you said you were in the Army, the Army uses this system too, i.e. XM-1. During the Korean war, the Army did use T instead of X though.

John, I would ask that you go and check your sources, although I'm afraid that we are your sources. Do you mean the Hydrogen bomb? The nuetron bomb is a small yield but highly radioactive weapon. A hydrogen bomb is the one that makes the whacking great explosion. And the Korean war did not hasten it's development, it was a race in and of itself with the Russians. Please check your source for the nuetron bomb and let is know your cite.
