Abstract
During the 1970s, the SALT I and II negotiations focussed international interest on long range strategic nuclear weapons. Now, the Soviet buildup and planned NATO modernization program of long range theatre nuclear forces, together with impending discussion on arms limitations, are drawing increasing attention to these classes of weapons. SALT III may encompass both classes. To compare the forces on both sides and predict future developments, it would be useful to portray their development over the past twenty years in graphical form. This has been done in six annotated diagrams, showing data for ICBMs, SLBMs, heavy bombers, long range land and sea-based theatre missiles, and long range theatre nuclear aircraft.
