Abstract : The removal of intermediate range ballistic missiles as a result of the INF treaty presents conventional balance of force implications which will be difficult for NATO to redress in the short term. This study evaluates how a dedicated conventional B-52 force, updated with presently available or programed technologies, could be applied to overcome the conventional force imbalance.
