Reputation of China about 240 nuclear warheads at the facility located at 8-14
Second Artillery missile forces were equipped with medium-range strategic
LONDON November 27 News: Federation of American Scientists and the Natural Resources Defense Council recently released annual report, there are around 23,300 nuclear warheads, deployed in 14 countries, 111 facilities. The report said China’s nuclear warheads is about 240, located in the 8-14 facility in the country, but they may not all enter the actual state of deployment.
report said, there are around 23,300 nuclear warheads, deployed in 14 countries, 111 facilities, of which nearly half of the warheads and their delivery can be fired in a short time with the deployment of weapons systems.
report, about 48 permanent Russian nuclear weapons storage facilities, mostly used to store the actual state of deployment of nuclear weapons. In addition, when nuclear weapons were transferred to other permanent storage facilities, the number of temporary storage facilities will be used for storage of nuclear weapons. Ten years ago, about 90 Russian nuclear storage facilities, and before 1991 is up to 500, indicating that Russian nuclear weapons storage facilities have been greatly consolidated.
report that the Russian storage facilities spacing to each other is very small and close to the densely populated area. For example, the Saratov region will be deployed around a missile division, a strategic bomber base, and one or storing more than 1000 state-level storage facilities for nuclear warheads.
report, the U.S. nuclear weapons deployed in 13 states and five European countries, 21 facilities. A decade ago 24, when the Cold War, 50 and 164 in 1985 compared to U.S. nuclear storage facilities has also been a significant consolidation.
nuclear weapons storage facilities in Europe and the United States mainland rather, nuclear weapons deployed in seven countries, including seven in France and the UK storage facilities, four storage facilities. Five non-nuclear NATO countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey) are still deployed in the territory of the United States first deployed during the Cold War, where nuclear weapons.
report estimates that China has a 8-14 nuclear weapons-related storage facilities, probably with a small number of Chinese nuclear missiles or aircraft for the deployment of military bases close. Report that China’s nuclear weapons and carrying weapons under the control of the CMC platform independent storage of storage facilities, and not all into the actual state of deployment.
report said Israel may have four nuclear storage facilities. Although so far on India and Pakistan’s nuclear storage facilities have a lot of rumors, but the exact number remains uncertain. It is believed that the three countries of nuclear warheads and nuclear weapons delivery platform is stored separately.
Although North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests, and rumors about North Korean nuclear weapons are also quite a bit, but the report says there is no evidence that North Korea has nuclear capability.
report notes that countries vary between the density of nuclear warheads. Russia to deploy in 48 facilities, there are 13,000 nuclear warheads, at the store 270 average. U.S. nuclear warhead storage, high-density, per store at 450. However, the report stressed that this is only average, it is believed that the actual distribution of nuclear warheads is very uneven, some of the storage location or storage of thousands of nuclear warheads.
