Russia Doubling Nuclear Warheads

Monday, April 4, 2016 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Russia is doubling the number of its strategic nuclear warheads on new missiles by deploying multiple reentry vehicles that have put Moscow over the limit set by the New START arms treaty, according to Pentagon officials.

A recent intelligence assessment of the Russian strategic warhead buildup shows that the increase is the result of the addition of multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, on recently deployed road-mobile SS-27 and submarine-launched SS-N-32 missiles, said officials familiar with reports of the buildup.

“The Russians are doubling their warhead output,” said one official. “They will be exceeding the New START [arms treaty] levels because of MIRVing these new systems.” [ Source ]

  1. Have the Russians written names on those missles yet?
    What I have read in various on-line papers is that China no longer wants to deal with Russia, Iran is going nuclear, Korea is testing nukes. By the way, India has been testing nukes since the early 1990s. That is some of what is going on in the other side of the globe.

    Why isn't the USA interested in Iran nuclear capability in South America? It's so much easier to send "something up the American Tusch" from our own hemisphere.
