early 1965 but he Russians may begin catch i n g up after that a leading Western Research Institute es timated Friday The annual review of the In stitute of Strategic Studies also said the Soviet Union is main taining its numerical superiority in submarine strength and there are indications that the Soviet Naval Air Force and mis silefiring submarines are com ng to play a more central role in her strategy Americas Strategic Air Com mand SAC has clear superior ty in the number of intercon tinental bombers the review re ported but the Soviet Union maintains a strong force of me dium bombers capable of strikes at Japan or Western Europe The review said Communist Chinas army has little strategic mobility because of primitive logistics and its air force has only obsolescent aircraft But it said the nu clear test has shown that the Chinese nuclear technology is apparently considerably more advanced than it was generally given credit for The Institute of Strat e g i c Studies researches problems on defense world security and dis armament It is an international study group of experts largely from Western NATO nations and in cludes politicians and military authorities from the United States Britain West European countries and India Lord Attlee the former British prime min ister is its president The review said the Soviet Union fields 200 intercontinental balistic missiles ICBMS double the number a year ago and this may increase sub stantially in 1965 But by early 1965 the United States will have 925 ICBMS com pared with 745 a year earlier However the report said this may be the last year in which the Western superiority in longrange striking power is so marked as the American ICBM program becomes sub stantialy completed next year and if the Soviet missile buildup is continued under Premier Alexei Kosygin and First Secretary Leonid Brezhnev The review also reported There is no sign of any signifi cant reduction in the number of the 750 Soviet intermediate range missiles IRBMS tar geted on Western Europe and Japan or in its force of 1400 medium bombers The United States has in creased its lead over the Soviet Union in fleet ballistic missiles from under 2tol to 4tol during the past year The Soviet Union is building about 10 nuclearpowered sub marines a year A reduction in Soviet conven tional military power seems un likely PUMPKIN KILLS SON NEW YORK WlA
