Abstract:

There has been a numerical increase and qualitative improvement in Soviet naval units in the Mediterranean in recent years. There is disagreement, however, over whether or not the Soviets have upset the military balance in the Mediterranean. In examining the relative power of the opposing alliances in the Mediterranean, the paper considers all the forces which would probably be available to NATO and to the Soviet Union in that area. In addition, it considers geopolitical factors including the Montreux Convention, opposing naval strategies, and the current political situation in the area. Modified author abstract
