Russia is now buying a lot more large missiles. In 2007, they will
purchase 17 ICBMs and eight "boosters" (rockets for putting satellites into
orbit, or delivering stuff to the space station.) In the next ten years, Russia
plans to replace it's current SSBN fleet with new Borei class boats, carrying
the new Bulava SLBM. Russia also plans to buy 69 Topol-M ICBMs in the next
decade. The Bulava is a modified (for submarine launch) version of the Topol-M.
Russia is also spending a lot of money to refurbish, and extend the service
like of, its older (SS-18 and SS-19) missiles. Currently, Russia has 927
ICBMs and SLBMs, carrying 4,279 warheads. The United States has 1,255 missiles
and 5,966 warheads.
