uperiority is determined to maintain it and to achieve that we maintain a total number of nuclear warheads tactical as well as strategic in the tens of thou sands In very Urge the So viets appear now to have some advantage in technology but not in delivery ability The Soviets probably have no missile at this time which will deliver a 100megatdn warhead to ICBM ranges although even uo der a test ban the Soviets could elect to develop such a missile The United States prefers to on smaller megatonnage bombs used in multiple numbers rather than build giantsize weap ons However the United States without any further testing can develop a warhead with a yield of 50 to 60 megatons for delivery by its B52 bombers It is clear that the do not have anything like the1 number of missiles necessary to knock out our Minuteman force nor do they appear to have any present plans to acquire such capability McNamara said the net of the relevant factors is that the US nuclear force is manifestly perior to
