§ Mr. Neubert
The numbers of dual-capable LRINF and SRINF aircraft in service with NATO and the Warsaw pact are as follows:
1985 End 1988 LRINF NATO 150 140 Warsaw pact 350 300 SRINF NATO 1,300(600) 1,500(650) Warsaw pact 3,800 3,250
These figures cover land based aircraft deployed n Europe west of the Urals and exclude French aircraft and those with a primary maritime role. The figures in brackets show NATO aircraft certified for nuclear use. Comparable figures are not available for the Warsaw pact.
The majority of Warsaw pact dual-capable aircraft in these ranges are capable of carrying air-to-surface missiles armed with conventional or nuclear warheads. Some of these missiles have ranges of up to several hundred kilometres. None of the NATO aircraft is currently equipped with air-to-surface missiles armed with nuclear warheads.
