But there haven't been any clash beyond a skirmish between nuclear powers in the last 67 years. One thing is to have conventional deterrence, and a different one is what are the reasons for the lack of open wars between major powers. We are already surpassing peace lapses of XIXth century, because the benefit/risk balances are outrageous

The trouble is that any nuclear power also maintains a strong conventional force, so we can’t investigate the option when its nuclear or nothing.

That is not "investigation". It is especulation until facts demostrates otherwise

Besides, last major conflicts are showing interesting trends that are more and more far from peace dividend and old big armoured manned assets

Honestly, few if any conflicts at all in the past 2 decades seen peer adversaries that could field much in terms of armor. But end of the day anyone who can brings a tank to the fight from Huthis to Ukraine.
