Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START)
(New START)
number of nuclear warheads subjected to the treaty
(As of March 1, 2014)
1,512

※By 2018, the number of operational strategic nuclear weapons will drop to a total of 1,550 warheads. However, New START will count warheads differently; only one warhead will be counted per every bomber. Since this table includes 180 warheads for non-strategic nuclear weapons in the 2,080 total no. of operational warheads for the U.S., a simple comparison cannot be made.
