Abstract : This report provides an examination of three possible sets of force structures that might set terms for future strategic arms reduction treaties between the U.S. and Russia. The measures used in this examination include first strike stability with and without various levels of national ballistic missile defenses for both the U.S. and Russia, and one indicator of geopolitical stability. Various force structures and postures provide illustrative results of a general method of analyzing the impact of the reductions in strategic nuclear arsenals.
