Abstract : The study examines the US/Soviet arms relationship by tracing the levels and qualitative changes of force components through the years. Granting the limitations of working with unclassified Western estimates of Soviet forces and of condensing information that would fill several catalogues, it proceeds on the basis that at least a clearer picture may emerge and some myths may be disposed of. Whereas most works on the US/Soviet arms race treat only strategic nuclear arms, this analysis also includes tactical nuclear weapons and general purpose forces.
