We are confident that the new GMLRS Alternative Warhead
will also provide reliable, highly accurate capability for our domestic and international customers.
The New York Times had reported on 27 April 1998 that Russia is helping India to develop Sea launch ballistic missile that can carry a nuclear warhead
and can strike deep inside Pakistan.
MIRV made it possible to load each missile with as many as 10 warheads
, each of which could be aimed at a different target.
The new DF-41 missile of China will use multiple warhead
capabilities as the longest-range intercontinental ballistic missile, reported Free Beacon.
North Korea has long boasted of making strides in acquiring a "nuclear deterrent", but there had been general skepticism that it could master the step of miniaturizing a nuclear warhead
to mount on a ballistic missile.
This is not as advanced as a Multiple Independently-targetable Reentry Vehicle (MIRV), which deploys multiple warheads
against multiple targets.
According to Ford, warheads
"yet to be disassembled" are stored at Coulport or as "work in progress" at Burghfield.
The country's increased interest in plutonium demonstrates its likely goal to develop smaller, lighter warheads
more suitable for use on missiles.
The chart also does not illustrate the dramatic reduction in US warheads
from the 12,000 deployed level in 1981 when the Reagan administration first worked on massive reductions.
Duration of the nuclear ban warhead
elimination period is proposed to be either three or four years, depending on the higher number of either Russian or US nuclear warheads
remaining when the worldwide, unanimously joined nuclear ban treaty enters into force.
On being asked about the process by which the warheads
were moved, Musharraf said that while he was never given a "running commentary" about the movement, there were locations where the warheads
were held and there were forces (the Strategic Plans Division) to look after them.
Israel does not need 400 nuclear warheads
to defend itself against non-nuclear neighbors.
