Effect of unsymmetric missile force reductions

Description

This note discusses the effect on first strike stability of unsymmetric force reductions, i.e., unilateral reductions from START I levels by one side only. It uses the model for unsymmetric force exchanges, damage, costs, and indices derived in earlier notes. It discusses the effect on first strike stability of unsymmetric fore reductions, i.e., unilateral reductions from START I levels by one side only, using the models for unsymmetric force exchanges, damage, costs, and indices derived in earlier notes. The forces treated are approximations that are assumed to fall in equal decrements from START I to II levels. Attack allocations are ... continued below

Description

This note discusses the effect on first strike stability of unsymmetric force reductions, i.e., unilateral reductions from START I levels by one side only. It uses the model for unsymmetric force exchanges, damage, costs, and indices derived in earlier notes. It discusses the effect on first strike stability of unsymmetric fore reductions, i.e., unilateral reductions from START I levels by one side only, using the models for unsymmetric force exchanges, damage, costs, and indices derived in earlier notes. The forces treated are approximations that are assumed to fall in equal decrements from START I to II levels. Attack allocations are determined numerically because of the large initial forces. They are relatively insensitive to fractionation. The decreasing side`s average allocation is about 0. 5; the static side`s allocation is about 0.25.
