This text examines the strategic nuclear balance using exchange models, a form of dynamic analysis that simulates possible nuclear wars between the United States and the Soviet Union. Among the topics explained are how to calculate, for several nuclear war scenarios, the ability of US bombers to survive, submarines and ICBMs. Also discussed is the effectiveness of US retaliation against Soviet strategic assets and the post-exchange correlation of forces and what this may imply for war outcomes. The book models possible future nuclear conflicts between the US and the USSR and the effects of continued expansion and modernization of strategic forces.
