Abstract:

The paper was undertaken to provide some insight to US R and D planners on how a typical Soviet R and D planner might go about constructing Soviet operational requirements for future Soviet strategic-nuclear forces in an Arms LimitationReduction SAL environment during the years through 1985. The paper uses an unconventional approach in that it is written as though a Soviet Ministry of Defense planner was presenting to his leadership his analysis of current weapon systems issues. The reader will note that the Soviet planner must deal not only with the realities of military technology but also with integrating and applying Marxist-Leninist dogma under currently-stated CPSU objectives. This paper is based on recent information and commentary in Soviet and Western open literature.
