PREFACE

   The Military Balance is an annual, quantitative assessment of the military power and defence expenditure of countries throughout the world.
   It examines the facts of military power as they existed on 1 July 1985, and no projections of force levels or weapons beyond this date have been included, except where specifically stated. It also does not reflect the facts of geography, doctrine or efficiency, except where these are explicitly touched upon. We make no attempt to compare one country's military capacity against others. Material is reviewed each year, and differences between years may be due as much to re-evaluation of evidence as to new information. We must warn, therefore, that The Military Balance may have limitations for those attempting to construct time series comparisons.
   The book is organized in two sections. In the first of these, national entries are grouped geographically: the US, the USSR, Warsaw Pact, NATO, Other European Countries, the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, China, Asia and Australasia and Latin America. Each grouping is preceded by an essay describing the international relationships, defence and economic positions of the countries described. Inclusion of a particular political entity or of a military organization connected to it in no way implies legal recognition of, or Institute support for, such entities.
   In the second section, tables give comparative information on nuclear delivery vehicles world-wide and in the European region, world-wide defence expenditure over a three-year period and military manpower, and major identified arms procurement contracts. Others show a break Lurssen of Non-Soviet Warsaw Pact defence budget expenditures, and compare the differences that occur when NATO defence outlays are calculated in local currencies and US dollars at current and 1980 prices.
   Further items in the same section show some static measurements of the super-power strategic balance, assess the European conventional theatre balance, list the items of heavy equipment found at divisional, Army and Front level in the Soviet Ground Forces, and list the civil aircraft types held by NATO and the Warsaw Pact which could be used to augment military airlift capability. Economic studies graphically illustrate trends in defence expenditure of the NATO countries, Japan and Sweden from 1972 and 1984; and discuss defence outlays and their impact on regional security.
   Notes, which follow this Preface, will help the reader to use the current edition of The Military Balance. It is absolutely necessary to read them, since they amplify and give precision to the data in the national sections and tables.
   Readers may use items of information from The Military Balance as required, without reference to the Institute, on condition that the Institute is cited as the source in any published work. However, reproduction of all major portions of the work must be approved in writing by the Institute prior to publication.
   The Director and the staff of the Institute assume full responsibility for the facts and judgments which this study contains. The co-operation of governments has been sought and, in many cases, received. Not all countries have been equally co-operative, and some figures have necessarily been estimated. Inevitably, these estimates change as new information becomes available. The Institute owes a considerable debt to a number of its own members and consultants, who have helped in compiling and checking material.
   October 1985
  

ПРЕДИСЛОВИЕ

   The Military Balance представляет собой ежегодную количественную оценку военной мощи и оборонных расходов стран всего мира.
   В нем рассматриваются факты военной мощи в том виде, в каком они существовали на 1 июля 1985 года, и никаких прогнозов в отношении численности сил или вооружений после этой даты не приводится, за исключением конкретно оговоренных случаев. Он также не отражает фактов географии, доктрины или эффективности, за исключением тех случаев, когда они прямо затрагиваются. Мы не пытаемся сравнивать военный потенциал одной страны по отношению к другим. Материалы рассматриваются каждый год, и различия между годами могут быть обусловлены как переоценкой фактических данных, так и новой информацией. Поэтому мы должны предупредить, что военный баланс может иметь ограничения для тех, кто пытается построить сравнения во времени.
   Книга состоит из двух разделов. В первой из них национальные позиции сгруппированы географически: США, СССР, Варшавский договор, НАТО, другие европейские страны, Ближний Восток и Северная Африка, страны Африки к югу от Сахары, Китай, Азия и Австралия и Латинская Америка. Каждой группе предшествует эссе, описывающее международные отношения, оборону и экономическое положение описанных стран. Включение того или иного политического образования или связанной с ним военной организации никоим образом не подразумевает юридического признания таких образований или оказания им поддержки.
   Во втором разделе таблицы содержат сравнительную информацию о средствах доставки ядерного оружия во всем мире и в Европейском регионе, общемировых расходах на оборону в течение трехлетнего периода и численности военного персонала, а также основных определенных контрактах на закупку оружия. Другие показывают разбивку расходов на оборону в рамках несоветского оборонного бюджета Варшавского договора и сравнивают различия, возникающие при расчете оборонных расходов НАТО в местной валюте и долларах США, в текущих ценах и ценах 1980 года.
   Дальнейшие вопросы в этом же разделе показывают некоторые статические показатели стратегического баланса сверхдержав, оценка баланса Европейского театра, перечисление тяжелой техники в дивизиях, и частях армейского и фронтового уровня Сухопутных войск СССР, и список гражданских самолетов НАТО и Варшавского договора, которые могут быть использованы для усиления военно-транспортных возможностей. Экономические исследования наглядно иллюстрируют тенденции оборонных расходов стран НАТО, Японии и Японии и Швеции в 1972 и 1984 годах; и обсуждение расходов на оборону и их влияние на региональную безопасность.
   Примечания, которые следуют за этим предисловием, помогут читателю воспользоваться текущим изданием военного баланса. Их абсолютно необходимо читать, так как ониобъясняют и придают точность данным в национальных разделах и таблицах.
   Читатели могут использовать информацию из военного баланса по мере необходимости, без ссылки на институт, при условии, что Институт цитируется в качестве источника в любой опубликованной работе. Однако размножение всех основных частей работы должно быть одобрено институтом в письменной форме до публикации.
   Директор и сотрудники Института несут полную ответственность за факты и суждения, содержащиеся в настоящем исследовании. Правительства стремились к сотрудничеству и во многих случаях получали его. Не все страны в равной степени сотрудничали друг с другом,поэтому некоторые цифры оцененочные. Эти оценки неизбежно меняются по мере поступления новой информации. Институт в значительной степени задолжал ряду своих собственных членов и консультантов, которые помогали в составлении и проверке материалов.
   Октябрь 1985 года
  

READER'S NOTES

   Regions and Countries
   The main geographical regions are shown in the Table of Contents on p.iii. An index to individual country entries is on p. 2. To the extent that national variations permit, country entry format is standard: population, military service, total military manpower strength, NMP, GDP or GNP, defence expenditure, GNP/GDP growth rates, inflation rates, foreign military aid, Gross External Debt, and exchange rates; separate sub-sections on the army, navy and air force give broad organization and equipment and, where relevant, significant foreign deployments. Where possible, reserves and para-military forces are included. Precise definitions as to what are or are not para-military forces are difficult, and some latitude must be allowed: para-military forces are those elements whose equipment and training goes beyond that required for civil police duties and whose constitution and control suggest they may be usable in support, or in lieu, of regular military forces.
   Defence Pacts and Agreements
   A short description of multilateral and bilateral pacts and military aid agreements introduces each of the main regional sections of the study. Defence assistance given under less formal arrangements is also noted. Agreements which cover only economic aid are not included.
   Defence Expenditure
   The latest available defence expenditure or budget data are quoted (in some cases estimated). In consequence inconsistencies arise in the comparative tables at the end of the volume. Where possible capital equipment budgets/expenditures have been added to recurrent/administrative cost. Figures may therefore be radically different from previous issues (e.g. Tunisia). In cases of great variance between sources (government data, central banks, IMF, etc) central bank data has been preferred. In many cases, internal/border security force budgets have been included. Revised budget and expenditure figures are the result of changes by the governments themselves. Table 3 provides estimates of non-Soviet Warsaw Pact defence expenditure by an independent research centre. Table 4 compares various methods of calculating NATO defence expenditures in constant prices. Table 5 shows current and past expenditures, expressed in US dollars so as to afford international comparisons. For the NATO countries in Tables 4 and 5, a standard NATO definition of defence expenditure is used, but in most other cases national definitions are used. 'NATO definition' includes all spending on regular military forces, military aid to other nations (including equipment and training), military pensions, expenses by host governments for NATO tenant forces, NATO infrastructure and civilian staff costs; para-military forces (e.g., gendarmerie) are excluded. For the USSR we cite a range of estimates illustrating the variation of opinion as to these expenditures, as well as an essay on the difficulties in estimating her defence costs. FMA is based on published military aid figures, but in some cases estimates were made.
   National Income
   GNP and GDP figures are both used (where possible, GDP has been preferred). GDP is equal to GNP minus net income from abroad. GDP figures are quoted at current market prices (factor cost for East European countries). Where figures are not currently available from published sources, estimates have been made, and Table 5 uses both published and estimated GDP/GNP figures. GDP/GNP growth rates refer to real growth in real terms. Inflation rates are based on available consumer price indices and refer to annual averages. Wherever possible the UN System of National Accounts, based on the latest available IMF International Financial Statistics (IFS), has been used. For Eastern Europe data from Economic Survey of Europe in 1984-1985 (New York: UN, 1985) and the World Economic Outlook (IMF, 1985) is used. For the USSR GNP estimates are given based on commercial banking estimates. East European GDP/GNP figures at factor cost are derived from NMP. For China estimates of GDP/GNP are given.
   Currency Conversion Rates
   To make comparisons easier, national currency figures have been converted into US dollars, using the rate averaged for the national financial year (for 1985-6 figures, the mid-year rate). Wherever possible exchange rates have been taken from IFS, though they may not always be applicable to commercial transactions. High inflation rates in some countries and recent dollar developments distort conversions. For the USSR no attempt has been made to convert roubles into dollars. In certain East European countries which are not members of the IMF and Hungary and Romania (which are), the conversion rates used are those described in T. P. Alton, 'Economic Growth and Resource Allocation in Eastern Europe', Reorientation and Commercial Relations of the Economies of Eastern Europe, Joint Economic Committee, 93rd Congress, 2nd Session (Washington DC: USGPO, 1974).
   Manpower
   Unless otherwise stated, the manpower figures given are those of active forces, regular and conscript. An indication of the size of militia, reserve and para-military forces is also included in the entry where appropriate. Reserve figures are generally estimates based on a five-year post-conscription period, though some national definitions are given. Manpower information is summarized in Table 5.
   Equipment
   The equipment figures in the entries show total holdings; non-operational and reserve total holdings are given where known. The symbol (-) indicates that part of an establishment is detached; the symbol (+) means that a unit has been reinforced. Except where the symbol    Strength of Military Formations
   The table below gives the approximate average establishment strength of the major military formations in the text. Military organization is flexible, and the manning and structure of formations may vary.
  
    []
  
   Divisional strengths cover organic units only and exclude support units or services outside the divisional structure. Warsaw Pact forces and those of other Soviet-supported countries have establishments similar to those of the Soviet Union. NATO formations and squadrons not included in the table above have similar totals to those of Germany unless otherwise mentioned in the text. Iran, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have tended to adopt American military organization, while Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore have broadly followed British practice.
   Arms Transfers
   Major arms supply agreements identified as being made during the year which ended on 1 July 1985 are listed, under geographical regions, in Table 6. Because the actual transfer of arms may take place outside that year, an indication is also given there of expected delivery dates, where known. Licensing arrangements, widespread among industrialized countries, are not normally included.
   Abbreviations and Terms
   A list of the abbreviations used in the text is on p.viii, immediately following these notes. For convenience, certain important abbreviations are explained again when first used. Where a $ sign appears it refers to US dollars, unless otherwise stated. The term billion (bn) equals 1,000 million (m).
  

ПРИМЕЧАНИЯ ДЛЯ ЧИТАТЕЛЕЙ

   Регионы и страны
   Основные географические регионы представлены в оглавлении на стр. iii. Индекс по отдельным странам находится на стр. 2. В той мере, в какой это позволяют национальные различия, справка о стране оформляется в стандартной форме: население, военная служба, общие военные силы cилы, НМП, ВВП или ВВП, расходы на оборону, ВНП/ВВП, темпы роста, темпы инфляции, внешняя военная помощь, валовый внешний долг и валютный курс; отдельные подразделы на армию, флот и ВВС дают необходимые сведения об организации и вооружении и, в соответствующих случаях, значительные иностранные развертывания. Там, где это возможно, включаются резервы и полувоенные силы. Точного определить, что являются или не являются военизированными силами сложно, а некоторые широта должна быть предоставлена: военизированные силы-это те элементы, оборудование и обучение выходит за рамки того, что требуется для гражданской полиции и чья Конституция и управления предполагают, что они могут использоваться в поддержку, или вместо, обычных вооруженных сил.
   Оборонные Пакты и соглашения
   Краткое описание многосторонних и двусторонних пактов и соглашений о военной помощи представляет каждый из основных региональных разделов исследования. Помощь в обороне данная под менее формальные механизмы тоже отмечена. Соглашения, которые охватывают только экономическую помощь, не включены.
   Оборонные расходы
   Приводятся последние имеющиеся данные по оборонным расходам или бюджету (в некоторых случаях оценочные). Вследствие этого в конце тома в сравнительных таблицах возникают несоответствия. Там, где это возможно, к текущим/административным расходам добавляются бюджеты/расходы на капитальное оборудование. Поэтому цифры могут радикально отличаться от предыдущих (например, Тунис). В случае значительной разницы между источниками (данные правительства, центральные банки, МВФ и т. д.) данные Центрального банка, являются предпочтительными. Во многих случаях были включены бюджеты внутренних/пограничных сил безопасности. Пересмотренный бюджет и расходы в результате изменения самих правительств. В таблице 3 приводятся оценки расходов несоветских стран Варшавского договора на оборону независимого исследовательского центра. В таблице 4 сравниваются различные методы расчета оборонных расходов НАТО в постоянных ценах. В таблице 5 показаны текущие и прошлые расходы, выраженные в долларах США, с тем чтобы можно было проводить международные сопоставления. Для стран НАТО в таблицах 4 и 5 используется стандартное определение оборонных расходов НАТО, но в большинстве других случаев используются национальные определения. "Определение НАТО" включает все расходы на регулярные вооруженные силы, военную помощь другим странам (включая оборудование и подготовку), военные пенсии, расходы правительств принимающих стран на войска-арендаторы НАТО, инфраструктуру НАТО и расходы на гражданский персонал; полу-военные силы (например, жандармерия) исключаются. Для СССР мы приводим ряд оценок, иллюстрирующих различия во мнениях относительно этих расходов, а также эссе о трудностях в оценке ее расходов на оборону. FMA основывается на опубликованных цифрах военной помощи, но в некоторых случаях были сделаны оценки.
   Национальный доход
   Используются показатели ВНП и ВВП (по возможности предпочтение отдается ВВП). ВВП равен ВНП минус чистый доход из-за рубежа. Данные по ВВП приводятся в текущих рыночных ценах (факторные издержки для восточноевропейских стран). В тех случаях, когда данные из опубликованных источников в настоящее время отсутствуют, были сделаны оценки, а в таблице 5 используются как опубликованные, так и оценочные данные о ВВП/ВНП. Темпы роста ВВП/ВНП относятся к реальному росту в реальном выражении. Темпы инфляции основаны на имеющихся индексах потребительских цен и относятся к среднегодовым показателям. Там, где это возможно, используется система национальных счетов ООН, основанная на последней имеющейся международной финансовой статистике МВФ (МФС). Для Восточной Европы используются данные экономического обзора Европы 1984-1985 годов (Нью-Йорк: ООН, 1985 год) и "перспективы мировой экономики" (МВФ, 1985 год). Для СССР оценки ВНП даются на основе коммерческих банковских оценок. Восточноевропейские показатели ВВП/ВНП по факторным издержкам рассчитываются на основе НМП. Для Китая приведены оценки ВВП/ВНП.
   Курсы конвертации валют
   Для облегчения сопоставлений показатели в национальной валюте были пересчитаны в доллары США с использованием усредненного курса за национальный финансовый год (для показателей 1985-1986 годов-среднегодовой курс). Везде, где это возможно, обменные курсы были взяты из МФС, хотя они не всегда могут быть применимы к коммерческим сделкам. Высокие темпы инфляции в некоторых странах и недавние изменения в долларах искажают конверсию. Для СССР не было предпринято никаких попыток конвертировать рубли в доллары. В некоторых восточно-европейских стран, которые не являются членами МВФ и Венгрии и Румынии (которые являются), обменные курсы используются те, что описаны в T. P. Alton, 'Economic Growth and Resource Allocation in Eastern Europe', Reorientation and Commercial Relations of the Economies of Eastern Europe, Joint Economic Committee, 93rd Congress, 2nd Session (Washington DC: USGPO, 1974).
   Личный состав
   Если не указано иное, приводятся данные о численности действующих сил, регулярных и призывных. В соответствующих случаях также указывается численность ополченцев, резервных и полувоенных сил. Данные о резервах, как правило, рассчитываются на основе пятилетнего периода после призыва, хотя и приводятся некоторые национальные определения. Информация о личном составе приведена в таблице 5.
   Вооружение
   Данные о вооружении в справках стран охватывают все запасы, за исключением боевых самолетов, где обычно показаны силы боевых эскадрилий. Символ (-) означает, что часть ослаблена; символ (+) означает, что часть усилена. За исключением случаев, когда используется символ <, исключаются морские суда водоизмещением менее 100 тонн. Термин, 'combat aircraft' включает только самолеты укомплектованные, и подготовленные, для доставки боеприпасов (бомбардировщики, истребители-бомбардировщики, штурмовики, перехватчик, разведывательных, противоповстанческие и вооруженные учебно-тренировочные самолеты, в том числе и оперативной подготовки или переучивания (ОCU)) и боевых вертолетов, когда четко обозначено. Основные технические данные о средствах доставки ядерного оружия (ракеты, артиллерия и самолеты), имеющихся в распоряжении стран НАТО и Варшавского договора, приведены в таблицах 1 и 2.
   Численность воинских формирований
   В приведенной ниже таблице приводится примерная средняя численность основных воинских формирований. Военная организация является гибкой, и комплектование и структура формирований могут варьироваться.
  
    []
   Силы дивизий охватывают только органические подразделения и исключают вспомогательные подразделения или службы за пределами структуры дивизий. Силы Варшавского договора и других поддерживаемых Советским Союзом стран имеют составы, аналогичные Советскому Союзу. Соединения и эскадрильи НАТО, не включенные в таблицу выше, имеют общие показатели, аналогичные показателям Германии, если в тексте не указано иное. Иран, Пакистан, Филиппины, Таиланд, Япония, Южная Корея и Тайвань, как правило, принимают американскую военную организацию, в то время как Австралия, Новая Зеландия, Малайзия и Сингапур в целом следуют британской практике.
   Поставки оружия
   Основные соглашения о поставках оружия, заключенные в течение года, закончившегося 1 июля 1985 года, перечислены в таблице 6 в разделе "географические регионы". Поскольку фактическая передача оружия может иметь место и за пределами этого года, там, где это известно, также указываются ожидаемые сроки поставки. Лицензионные соглашения, широко распространенные среди промышленно развитых стран, обычно не включаются.
   Сокращения и термины
   Список сокращений, используемых в тексте, приведен на стр. viii сразу же после этих Примечаний. Для удобства, некоторые важные сокращения объясняются снова при первом использовании. Если появляется знак $, он относится к долларам США, если не указано иное. Термин миллиард (bn) равен 1000 миллионам (m).

COUNTRIES AND PRINCIPAL PACTS

  

The United States

   During the past twelve months the United States retired 11 Titan II ICBM (3 more will retire by November 1985). This has reduced the ICBM total weapons yield by 99 MT.. While there is still great uncertainty over the number of the MX ICBM to be deployed, its development is proceeding, with a planned Initial Operating Capability (IOC) of December 1986. The Midgetman ICBM is still in the very early concept stage and could not be deployed before the 1990s.
   SLBM, however, have increased by 24 with the introduction of the sixth Ohio-class SSBN. A seventh is due to be delivered in October 1985, and this delivery would have put the US over the SALT II MIRVed missile ceiling. A Poseidon boat will be taken out of service to prevent this. The figures of 1 July, however, is 640 missiles in 37 SSBN, an increase over the twelve months of 48 missiles. The normal Poseidon warhead payload is 10 MIRV, of 40 to 50 KT each. The Trident C-4 carries 8 warheads of 100 KT. The present increase over the 1984 total is therefore 384 warheads, with a maximum of 38.4 MT. The intended replacement of the Poseidon boat with the seventh Ohio will mean a further net increase of 8 missiles, an increase in the number of MIRV of 32 and an increase in submarine-launched total weapons yield of 11.2 MT. The Trident D-5 (or Trident II) SLBM is in development, with a planned IOC of 1989.
   There is no significant change in the B-52 or FB-111 fleets. However, the first of the new generation of strategic bombers, the B-1B, has been delivered. At present the first squadron of 16 aircraft is planned to be operational in late 1986. Three other squadrons and a training element will follow, to a total of 100 aircraft; 51 remain on order, and deliveries are expected to be at a rate of 4 per month from September 1986. This aircraft can carry three internal single or mixed nuclear loads of free-fall bombs, AGM-69A SRAM and AGM-86B ALCM, plus eight loads externally. Maximum single loads would be 22 ALCM (with the W-80-1 warhead - estimated yield: 200 KT), 38 SRAM, 20 B-28, 36 B-43/-61/-83 nuclear bombs, 128 500-lb Mk 82 or 36 2,000-lb Mk 84 conventional bombs. The B-52 will carry up to 20 ALCM.
   The modernization of US strategic warning and control systems (land- and space-based) is proceeding.
   The US Army is undergoing a period of reorganization. The armoured and mechanized divisions are being modernized; some of the infantry divisions are being converted to light divisions, and an experimental high-technology motorized division is being formed. The reorganization is affecting the Army Reserve structure, with a number of units being selected to form part of the existing Active structure when required. A parallel review of the weapons and communications components intended to replace older systems is also in progress. It is intended that there will be six distinct types of Army division, each with a somewhat different role and capability.
   Deliveries continue to enhance and modernize US maritime and air capabilities. Three more Los Angeles-class SSN bring the 1 July total holdings to 29. A second Ticonderoga-class conventionally-powered guided-missile cruiser has joined the fleet; a third is expected later in 1985. Series production of the Perry-class guided missile frigate continues, with seven more entering service. A new class of destroyer (the DDG-51, Arleigh Burke) has been ordered.
   Procurement scheduled over the longer term and funded also includes 6 more SSBN, 11 attack submarines, three carriers, 14 Ticonderoga-class cruisers and a number of amphibious warfare and support vessels. Of particular note is a revival of interest over the past few years in surface-based mine counter-measures vessels. The use of helicopters in this role is still important, as shown by purchases of additional aircraft for this purpose, but each has its own peculiar capabilities, and the two need to be used together as a team for optimum effect.
   Naval air continues to see the replacement of the F-4 by the F-14 and the A-7 by the F-18. Greater range, and enhanced weapons loads improve the combat capability of the carrier based squadrons.
   The Marine Corps will complete the upgrading of both the quality and quantity of its main amphibious vehicles, of its artillery support, and of its support aircraft.
   The Air Force continues to modernize, introducing F-15 and F-16 to replace older types. Some of the displaced aircraft are being passed on to the Reserves, but the latter are also getting a few of the newer types. All the Services are aware that there is a danger that an all-volunteer force will be less capable of sustaining a long war than a nation which has a pool of former conscripts from which to draw. All have made considerable efforts to enhance their Reserve structures and continue to do so. Expanded training and administrative support programmes are helping to upgrade the numbers and capabilities of all Reserve components. There is still a shortfall, but it is less than it was.
   US interest in the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) continues, but this undertaking is still at the research stage. For the first time, both Houses of Congress have authorized funds for the manufacture of a new generation of chemical weapons, but with some qualifications. It remains to be seen whether the Administration will eventually produce binary chemical munitions.
   US Defence Budget
   The level of American defence expenditures is confusing to many, because several separate budgeting indices are used and because other agencies, apart from the Defense Department, administer parts of the defence programme. The budgetary or fiscal year begins on 1 October. Spending accounts have three denominations: Outlays are the actual expenditures (i.e. the cheques written during a given fiscal year); Budget Authority (BA) is the amount which may be committed to current and future outlays in a fiscal year, Total Obligational Authority (TOA) includes budget authority, obligations from previous fiscal years and other receipts (such as earned income, interest, etc). Less than 60% of outlays in any one year is obligated by the current year's budget authority. For example, $6 bn in budget authority was committed to build an aircraft carrier two years ago, but actual outlays will be made over a period of six years as the carrier is built. Hence the level of budget authority will indicate the level of both present and future outlays. Federal deficit calculations, however, are based on outlays.
   The National Defense budgeting function includes spending administered by several departments and independent agencies. Total National Defense function outlays in 1984 ($227,413 bn) included the following spending categories: Department of Defense (DoD) ($220.84 bn), Department of Energy Atomic Energy Defense Activities ($6,120 bn), General Services Administration ($88 m), Central Intelligence Agency military activities ($86 m), Federal Emergency Management Agency ($240 m), Intelligence Community Staff ($16 m), and Selective Service System ($22 m). This does not include outlays on several other major programmes related to national security: International Security Assistance ($7,924 bn - administered by the Office of the President, the Treasury Department and the State Department), Veterans Administration Benefits ($25,614 bn), Foreign Economic and Financial Assistance ($4,478 bn) the National Aeronautics and Space Administration ($7,048 bn) and the Coast Guard ($2,518 bn). The specific budgets of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and other intelligence activities are classified and are hidden within the National Defense budget function. It has been suggested that the intelligence budget is $16.5 bn.
   The American defence budgetary process has three distinct parts: the Administration, or Executive Branch develops a budget proposal and sends it to Congress; Congress reviews and amends the budget as well as introducing legislation for levying taxes; the defence agencies spend their appropriations during the fiscal year. The DoD operates a five-year planning cycle. The Secretary of Defense issues the classified Defense Guidance which outlines overall US military strategy, gives guidance to the military services for their programmes, and, in its 'Fiscal Guidance', establishes the overall level of defence spending. The Services present their recommended programme and, with the Secretary of Defense, and the Office of Management and Budget acting on behalf of the President, will prepare an overall programme and budget. The final Administration proposal year is due to begin. The proposal is outlined in the Annual Report of the Secretary of Defense and several other classified and unclassified supporting documents.
   By statute, Congress must reconcile the entire federal budget in two budget resolutions which are debated in the House and Senate Budget Committees. Defence budgets must be written into law in an Authorization bill which originates in the Armed Services Committees, and funds to carry out the authorized programmes are granted in an Appropriations bill. Both the House and Senate must pass identical budget resolutions, authorizations and appropriations. The President may sign or veto either the Authorization or Appropriation bill (Congress can overrule a Presidential veto by a two-thirds majority of both Houses). But sometimes the process is amended. On occasion, the Congress has passed the Appropriations bill without an Authorization bill. Sometimes the Defense Authorization is provided by a continuing resolution.
   Congress has increasingly tended to make reductions in the President's original submission. Budget authority and actual expenditure are obligated by the Department of Defense in the subsequent fiscal year. For FY 1984, Congress approved $231.0 bn outlays for the Department. Actual DoD expenditures in that year in fact totalled $220,860 bn, due to changes in prices estimates and contracts. For the current FY 1985, Congress approved $246,286 bn in outlays, but, if the spending patterns of the first eight months continue, actual FY 1985 outlays are likely to be $5-8 bn less.
   The Reagan Administration came to office with a commitment to increase defence spending substantially after a period of little or negative growth immediately following the Vietnam war - although about 3% real growth was achieved during the Carter Presidency. (Defence expenditure, in constant 1980 dollars, is shown in the appropriate graph in the Analysis section at the end of the book.) Spending plans contained in the FY 1986 Budget project a 5% or higher real increase in both outlays and budget authority until 1990. In subsequent agreements between Administration and Congress the defence budget has been set to show zero growth in FY 1986, and 3% real growth will be hard to maintain towards the end of the decade:

Соединенные Штаты Америки

   В течение последних двенадцати месяцев Соединенные Штаты вывели 11 МБР Titan II (еще 3 выведут к ноябрю 1985 года). Это снизило общую мощность МБР на 99 МТ. Пока еще не ясно, какое количество МБР МХ должно быть развернуто, ее развитие продолжается, с плановой начальной оперативной готовности (IOC) в декабре 1986 года. МБР Midgetman все еще находится на самой ранней стадии разработки концепции и не может быть развернута до 1990-х годов.
   Число БРПЛ, однако, увеличились на 24 с введением шестой ПЛАРБ типа Ohio. Седьмая должна быть получена в октябре 1985 года, и эта поставка поставила бы США над потолком ракет с РГЧ ИН по ОСВ-2. Лодки Poseidon будут выведены из эксплуатации, чтобы предотвратить это. Цифра на 1 июля, однако, составляет 640 ракет на 37 ПЛАРБ, то есть увеличение за двенадцать месяцев 48 ракет. Нормальная полезная нагрузка боеголовки Poseidon составляет 10 MIRV, от 40 до 50 кт каждая. Trident C-4 несет 8 боеголовок по 100 кт. Поэтому нынешнее увеличение по сравнению с 1984 на 384 боеголовки, максимум на 38.4 МТ. Предполагаемая замена лодки Poseidon с седьмой Ohio будет означать дальнейшее увеличение на 8 ракет, увеличение количества РГЧ на 32 и увеличение запускаемых с подводных лодок мощности на 11.2 МТ. БРПЛ Trident D-5 (или Trident II) в разработке, с планируемыми поставками в 1989 году.
   Во флотах B-52 и FB-111 существенных изменений нет. Тем не менее, первый из нового поколения стратегических бомбардировщиков, B-1B, был поставлен. В настоящее время первую эскадрилью из 16 самолетов планируется ввести в эксплуатацию в конце 1986 года. Три других эскадрилий и учебный элемент будет такой, чтобы в общей сложности было 100 самолетов; 51 остаются в заказе, а поставки ожидаются в размере 4 в месяц с сентября 1986 года. Этот самолет может нести три внутренние единые или смешанные ядерные нагрузки бомб свободного падения, AGM-69A SRAM и AGM-86B ALCM, плюс восемь подвесок снаружи. Максимальная единая нагрузка составит 22 ALCM (с боеголовкой W-80-1 - расчетная мощность: 200 KT), 38 SRAM, 20 B-28, 36 B-43/-61/-83 ядерные бомбы, 128 500-фунтовых Mk 82 или 36 2000-фунтовых Mk 84 обычных бомб. B-52 будет нести до 20 ALCM.
   Продолжается модернизация американских систем стратегического предупреждения и управления (наземного и космического базирования).
   Армия США переживает период реорганизации. Модернизируются бронетанковая и механизированная дивизии, часть пехотных дивизий переформируется в легкие дивизии, формируется опытная высокотехнологичная моторизованная дивизия. Реорганизация влияет на структуру резервной армии, с количеством выбранных в рамках существующей структуры Active при необходимости единиц. Параллельно проводится изучение компонентов вооружений и связи, призванных заменить старые системы. Предполагается, что будет шесть различных типов армейских дивизий, каждая из которых будет иметь несколько иную роль и возможности.
   Поставки продолжают укреплять и модернизировать морской и воздушный потенциал США. Три ПЛА Los Angeles принятые до 1 июля довели их общее число до 29. К флоту присоединился второй ракетный крейсер типа Ticonderoga с обычным двигателем, третий ожидается позднее в 1985 году. Серийное производство ракетных фрегатов типа Perry продолжается и более семи введено в эксплуатацию. Был заказан новый тип эсминцев (DDG-51, Arleigh Burke).
   Закупки, запланированные на более длительный срок и финансируемые также, включают еще 6 ПЛАРБ, 11 ударных подводных лодок, 3 авианосца, 14 крейсеров типа Ticonderoga и ряд десантных военных и вспомогательных судов. Особо следует отметить возрождение в последние несколько лет интереса к надводным противоминным средствам. Использование вертолетов в этой роли по-прежнему важно, о чем свидетельствуют закупки дополнительных вертолетов для этой цели, но каждый из них обладает своими особыми возможностями, и оба компонента должны использоваться вместе как команда для достижения оптимального эффекта.
   Военно-морская авиация продолжает замену F-4 на F-14 и A-7 на F-18. Большой ассортимент, и усиленное вооружение улучшает боеспособность авианосных эскадрилий.
   Корпус морской пехоты завершит модернизацию как качества, так и количества своих основных машин-амфибий, артиллерийского обеспечения и вспомогательных самолетов.
   Военно-воздушные силы продолжают модернизацию, внедряя F-15 и F-16 для замены старых типов. Некоторые из снятых самолетов передаются в резерв, но последние также получают несколько новых типов. Все службы осознают, что существует опасность того, что силы, состоящие из добровольцев, будут в меньшей степени способны выдержать длительную войну, чем нация, имеющая резерв бывших призывников. Все они приложили значительные усилия для укрепления своих резервных структур и продолжают делать это. Расширенные программы профессиональной подготовки и административной поддержки помогают увеличить численность и расширить возможности всех резервных компонентов. По-прежнему существует дефицит, но он меньше, чем был.
   Интерес США к стратегической оборонной инициативе (SDI) продолжается, но это начинание все еще находится на стадии исследования. Впервые обе палаты Конгресса санкционировали выделение средств на производство химического оружия нового поколения, но с некоторыми оговорками. Еще предстоит выяснить, будет ли администрация в конечном счете производить бинарные химические боеприпасы.
   Оборонный бюджет США
   Уровень американских оборонных расходов многих смущает, потому что используется несколько отдельных бюджетных индексов и потому что другие учреждения, помимо Министерства обороны, управляют частями оборонной программы. Бюджетный или финансовый год начинается 1 октября. Счета расходов имеют три наименования: расходы - фактические расходы (т. е. расходы, выписанные в течение данного финансового года); Бюджетные полномочия (BA) - это сумма, которая может быть выделена на текущие и будущие расходы в финансовом году, общие долговые обязательства (TOA) включает бюджетный орган, обязательства предыдущих финансовых лет и другие поступления (такие как заработанные доходы, проценты и т. д.). Менее 60% расходов в течение одного года приходится на бюджетные полномочия текущего года. Например, два года назад на строительство авианосца было выделено $6 млрд бюджетных средств, но фактические расходы будут производиться в течение шести лет по мере строительства авианосца. Таким образом, объем бюджетных полномочий будет определять объем как нынешних, так и будущих расходов. Однако расчеты федерального дефицита основаны на расходах.
   Бюджетная функция национальной обороны включает расходы, управляемые несколькими департаментами и независимыми учреждениями. Общая функция национальных оборонных издержек в 1984 году ($227,413 млрд) включает следующие категории расходов: Министерства обороны (МО) ($220.84 млрд.), Министерства энергетики атомной энергетики оборонной деятельности ($6,120 млрд.), общие административные услуги ($88 млн.), Центрального разведывательного управления военной деятельности ($86 млн), Федерального агентства чрезвычайных ситуаций ($240 млн.), разведывательное сообщество сотрудников ($16 млн), и выборочного обслуживание системы ($22 млн). Это не считая расходов на несколько других крупных программ, связанных с национальной безопасностью: международная безопасность помощи ($7,924 млрд - в ведении Канцелярии Президента, Министерство финансов и Государственный департамент), управление по делам льгот ветеранов ($25,614 млрд), в иностранной экономической и финансовой помощи ($4,478 млрд) Национального управления по аэронавтике и исследованию космического пространства США ($7,048 млрд) и береговой охраны ($2,518 млрд). Конкретные бюджеты Центрального разведывательного управления, оборонного разведывательного управления, Агентства национальной безопасности и других видов разведывательной деятельности засекречены и скрыты в рамках функции бюджета национальной обороны. Предполагается, что бюджет разведки составляет $16,5 млрд.
   Американский оборонный бюджетный процесс состоит из трех отдельных частей: администрация или исполнительная власть разрабатывает бюджетное предложение и направляет его в Конгресс; Конгресс рассматривает и вносит поправки в бюджет, а также вводит законодательство о взимании налогов; оборонные ведомства расходуют свои ассигнования в течение финансового года. МО осуществляет пятилетний цикл планирования. Министр обороны издает секретное руководство по обороне, в котором излагается общая военная стратегия США, дается руководство военным службам для их программ и в своем "бюджетном руководстве" устанавливает общий уровень расходов на оборону. Службы представляют свою рекомендованную программу и совместно с министром обороны и Управлением по вопросам управления и бюджета, действующим от имени Президента, готовят общую программу и бюджет. Должен начаться год окончательного предложения администрации. Это предложение изложено в ежегодном докладе министра обороны и ряде других секретных и несекретных вспомогательных документов.
   По закону Конгресс должен согласовать весь федеральный бюджет в двух бюджетных резолюциях, которые обсуждаются в Палате представителей и сенатских бюджетных комитетах. Оборонные бюджеты должны быть законодательно закреплены в законопроекте о полномочиях, который принимается комитетами по делам вооруженных сил, а средства на осуществление утвержденных программ выделяются в законопроекте об ассигнованиях. И Палата представителей, и Сенат должны принимать одинаковые бюджетные резолюции, разрешения и ассигнования. Президент может подписать или наложить вето либо авторизации и законопроекта (Конгресс может отменить президентское вето большинством в две трети голосов обеих палат). Но иногда процесс корректируется. Иногда Конгресс принимает законопроект об ассигнованиях без соответствующего разрешения. Иногда разрешение на защиту предоставляется на основании постоянного решения.
   Конгресс все чаще склонялся к сокращению первоначального представления Президента. Бюджетные полномочия и фактические расходы возлагаются на Министерство обороны в следующем финансовом году. По итогам 1984, Конгресс одобрил расходы $231.0 млрд. Фактические расходы Минобороны в этом году фактически составили $220,860 млрд, что связано с изменением ценовых оценок и контрактов. На текущий финансовый год 1985, Конгресс одобрил 246,286 млрд долл. в расходах, но, если структуры расходов первых восьми месяцев и далее, фактические расходы за 1985, вероятно, будут на 5-8 млрд долл. меньше.
   Администрация Рейгана пришла к власти с обязательством существенно увеличить расходы на оборону после периода небольшого или отрицательного роста сразу после войны во Вьетнаме, хотя реальный рост был достигнут во время президентства Картера около 3%. (Расходы на оборону в постоянных долларах 1980 года показаны на соответствующей диаграмме в аналитическом разделе в конце книги.) Планы расходов содержатся в проекте бюджета на 1986 финансовый год 5% или выше реальное увеличение как расходов так и бюджетных полномочий вплоть до 1990 года. В последующих соглашениях между администрацией и конгрессом оборонный бюджет должен был показать нулевой рост в 1986 финансовом году, и 3% реального роста будет трудно сохранить к концу десятилетия:

The Soviet Union

   Strategic Forces
   While there are numerous reports attesting the continuing modernization of the Soviet strategic inventory, there have been no significant changes in total numbers. The ICBM total continues to remain at 1,398, and there are no changes in the totals of the individual components of that inventory, although warhead numbers are increasing. There are indications that the older SS-11 and SS-13 missiles are to be replaced by a mobile missile now under test, the SS-X-25. A second new missile, the SS-X-24, is also close to deployment, first in silos and later possibly on rail-mobile launchers. There have been suggestions during the year that the warheads on the deployed missiles are being modernized, with different mixes of yield, penetration aids and guidance. It is not possible to verify these statements.
   The strategic submarine force is following a similar pattern. There are now three Typhoon-class SSBN in service, one more than in 1984. Each boat has 20 SS-N-20 missiles, each with 9 200-KT MIRV. A new D-IV-class boat is reported. This carries 16 SS-N-23. Details of this missile are not yet available. At the same time 2 Y-l submarines, and the last two of the H-II class have been retired. This reduces the number of SS-N-6 SLBM by 32, and retires the last of the strategic SS-N-5. Thirty-nine of these remain in a theatre role outside SALT. The net effect of these changes is to reduce the overall number of ballistic missiles by two in each category, increase the number of Soviet submarines under the SALT Agreement by one, and reduce the number of boats outside that Agreement by two.
   The only change in the strategic bomber inventory has come about through the re-opening of the production line of the Tu-95 Bear. Some 25 of the Tu-95H model have been produced as a vehicle for the new AS-15 ALCM. This missile has a range of some 3,000 km; details of its warhead are unknown. The Blackjack strategic bomber, widely reported to be similar to the US B-1B, is still under development.
   Modernization of the Moscow ABM system continues with the deployment of new ground based interceptor missiles (SH-04/-08). The USSR is on the verge of deploying the SA-X-12 SAM, which may have some ABM capability.
   The SS-20 IRBM continues to be deployed, and there is evidence that some of the missiles previously sited in Central Asia have been re-deployed to locations from which they can support the Western Operational Theatres. Information suggests that, of the total of 423 now in service, 216 are deployed facing Western Europe, 162 are in the Far East, and the 45 remaining in Central Asia are in the process of re-deployment. The SS-4 total has now been reduced to 120, just over half the figure for last year. There have been reports that a follow - on to the SS-20, identified as the SS-X-28, began flight tests in 1984; it also carries three warheads.
   General-Purpose Forces
   A number of details concerning the Soviet forces have emerged during the past months, requiring changes in the form of our country entry compared with previous years. In summary, its sequence has been changed to reflect the division of Soviet forces into five arms - Strategic Rocket Forces, Ground Troops, Air Defence, Air Force and Navy - and the order of precedence that the Soviet authorities attach to them. We have accordingly separated the Air Defence component, placing it in appropriate Air Defence section. The division between Air Defence interceptors and air superiority fighters has still not been satisfactorily clarified, and some measure of speculation is inevitable when trying to identify types and inventories. In this regard, there are a number of cases where previous estimates may have included a measure of double counting. Insofar as the 'regular' Ground and Naval Forces are concerned, comparisons with our presentation in previous years should present little difficulty.
   The Army's armoured force shows a slight increase, but precise figures identifying the specific models have been impossible to provide. We are also aware of the difficulties in reconciling a total based on the organizational structure of the Ground Forces with the numbers reported as a gross total inventory. In all categories of equipment, both new and obsolescent equipment is known to be stored for mobilization purposes. The exact status for the reserve stocks in terms of types and numbers is unknown. Again, more modern AFV are coming into service; older types continue to be used for day-to-day purposes.
   One possible exception to the general comment on the Ground Forces is the formation of what appears to be a separate air component directly under Army control. Heretofore the Frontal Aviation has been considered an adjunct of the Army commanders' resources; the term 'flying artillery' described one such function. As in the armies of other nations, however, it is apparent that such control was not considered sufficiently tight or responsive. The new force comprises a mix of assault and transport helicopters; no fixed-wing aircraft have been identified within it.
   The Soviet Navy has introduced three classes of diesel submarines. The M and S classes were reported on trials last year, they have been joined by a new class, the Akula. One Y-class submarine formerly in the strategic fleet is now being converted to a cruise-missile submarine with as many as 24 SS-N-24 SLCM. Though the total of attack submarines is up only slightly from that of 1984, newer boats are replacing some older models. The fourth Kiev-class aircraft carrier is now in service, and deployments and' exercises suggest that these ships are now being operated as carrier battle groups, much along US lines. The second Slava-class cruiser is now in service, although final trials may still be continuing. Sovremenny- and Udaloy-class destroyers continue in series production. There are a number of minor changes in the categories of minor combatants. The numbers of Osa missile attack craft are being reduced.
   The re-organization of the Soviet forces under their Operational Theatre concept is intended to provide a system of tight control over all the forces, and so permit a theatre commander to use all the forces at his disposal in as efficient and controlled a manner as possible. The Soviet Union has divided her forces into three major Strategic Theatres (GTVD) - Western, Southern and Far Eastern - with the Strategic Forces and Strategic Reserves controlled centrally (although elements of them are physically located in the Theatres). The major Strategic Theatres are further sub-divided into regional theatre (TVD) commands, including those forces operating at sea. The Military Districts remain, assigned to the regional TVD as doctrine and geography dictate. Their roles embrace mobilization and administrative support; formations located within them would form fronts and armies on mobilization. We show the deployment of the several Soviet force components within this framework. We must warn that much of the presentation is speculative and would welcome comment and suggestions for its improvement.

   On 27 September 1984, Soviet Finance Minister Vasily Garbuzov announced an 11.8% increase in official defence spending to 19.063 bn roubles ($22,257 bn) for 1985, after it had been frozen at 17.054 bn roubles ($23,015 bn) since 1981. Official government defence spending held steady or slightly decreased in the 1970s. Although the purpose of the USSR's largest peace-time military budget is, in Garbuzov's words, 'to increase the combat readiness of our Armed Forces which are capable of giving a crushing rebuff to any aggressor', the Soviet leadership did not reveal which military programmes required additional funds. The largest spending increase in 25 years was portrayed as a measured response to recent increases in American defence expenditure.
   Nearly all competent Western observers believe that the one-line official Soviet defence figures underestimate actual expenditure by a factor of ten or more, and that the USSR has consistently outspent the US for the last decade. Some unclassified defence expenditure estimates are listed in the Table overleaf.
   Most observers believe that actual military spending represents 12-17% of the Soviet GDP. The majority of time-series assume stable, persistent growth in total defence expenditure in the range of 2-4% since the mid-1970s. Recent American and British estimates suggest that total annual defence expenditure grew by 4-5% before 1976, decelerated to a 2% annual rate in 1976-82 and rose at a rate of 3-4% in 1982-84.

   There is widespread disagreement over what programmes should be included in the definition of defence expenditure. Many Western observers believe that the USSR includes the civilian space programme, internal security forces, military construction troops and civil defence as part of her concept of national defence. Consequently, estimates based on that wider definition (which are not included in the Table) will tend to overstate Soviet defence expenditure if compared to traditional Western defence allocations. Western estimates are separately calculated in roubles, which may indicate the defence burden on the Soviet economy, and dollars, which may facilitate a comparison with American programmes. Western soviet logists use two basic methodologies to calculate Soviet defence outlays. Some nongovernment analysts examine the published budget documents and infer additional militar ilyrelated expenditures in non-defence line items. Most analysts - including those of the US CIA, the US DIA and the British MoD - individually estimate procurement, RDT&E, O&M, personnel costs, rouble/dollar conversion rates and other micro-aggregates although the details are rarely part of the public record. Both the CIA and DIA spend considerable effort collecting raw data and developing indirect economic analyses in order to calculate independent dollar and rouble baselines. Procurement is based on estimated production runs multiplied by the adjusted cost of a similar weapon in the West. Sample unit price and production estimates include: T-80 tank $1.2-1.6 m (1982: 400 units); T-72 tank $1.0-1.3 m (1982: 1,000 units); and BMP-2 MICV $300-450,000 (1982: 4,000 units). Production statistics based on photographic reconnaisance and other intelligence appear to be reliable, but intelligence gaps, imprecise economic analyses, unverifiable data, and the lack of precise information concerning weapons exports and the structure of reserve stocks makes this analysis inexact. Production cost estimates cannot accurately reflect true procurement spending patterns, because resource costs and dollar/rouble conversions are difficult to quantify and, more importantly, Soviet procurement objectives are set in real unit terms without a strict requirement for money prices to coincide with the real costs of goods and services. Manpower costs are derived from known military salary rates, rank structure and ration scales, which appear to be fairly reliable; manpower costs have reportedly grown at 2% per year for the last ten years. It is difficult to estimate manpower support costs or the cost of conscription and other policies in terms of economic production forgone. The indirect drain on the Soviet economy is not inconsiderable, although direct manpower costs are much less than in the West. The published data base for the RDT&E and O&M accounts is minimal. Soviet R&D accounts are, in the CIA's words, 'the least reliable' and appear to be roughly derived from Soviet budgetary allocations to science, with classified sources providing some basis of micro-analysis. The Academy of Sciences administers - and presumably funds - military R&D, with planning, development and production steered by complex interdepartmental communication between the Ministry of Defence, GOSPLAN, the Academy of Sciences, the Council of Ministers and the production ministries. RDT&E programmes are thought to be on the scale of American efforts, including space-based defence and ground-based ABM technology. O&M accounts are usually estimated as a function of procurement and manpower estimates; precise fuel and maintenance costs are unavailable. Estimated O&M costs have grown 3-4% annually since 1976. It is believed that operations in Afghanistan have not substantially strained O&Mor total defence expenditure. Difficulties surrounding exchange rates were examined in previous editions of The Military Balance. Most observers believe that current methodologies are tainted by an element of institutional bias, a tendency to assume mirroring micro-economic phenomena, limited understanding of the Soviet budgeting process and Soviet military-industrial policy, and the limited number of Soviet studies programmes outside the intelligence community.*
   (* For further background, see R. Kaufmann, S. Rosefielde, H. Schaefler, in Joint Economic Committee, Congress of the United States, Hearings(annual); also previous editions of the The Military Balance.)
   The lack of hard, openly verifiable data and the political implications of higher or lower spending estimates have caused considerable controversy and preclude a precise consensus concerning Soviet spending patterns - particularly with respect to procurement. The Soviet Government does not publish defence micro-aggregates. In 1976 the DIA and CIA revised their defence investment estimates upwards as a result of new analysis which showed that the Soviet defence industry was somewhat less efficient than previously believed. In 1983 the CIA lowered its estimates of Soviet military procurement. Transitions in the production cycle do not wholly account for the 1976-82 slowdown. Military and civilian observers argue that economic constraints, coupled with rising technological costs, have limited production. Technical delays, transportation difficulties and industrial bottlenecks spilling over into the defence sector are other major factors. Bottlenecks in the procurement cycle are often managed by stretch-outs and the application of additional R&D funds. The Soviet Union continues to narrow the technological gap, but it is difficult to insert rapidly expanding technology into the planned production cycle. Compliance with the SALT I and II Accords may have had a marginal effect. In 1984 the CIA and DIA openly disagreed on Soviet procurement spending, with the CIA reporting relatively slow growth of 2% annually from 1976-83, and the DIA a slightly faster rate which surged to 5-10% in 1982-83. Both agencies now appear to agree that the procurement accounts were stagnant in 1976-83 due to lower-than-expected production in the face of resource constraints. Preliminary reports suggest the upturn beginning in 1982 is of the order of 3-6%. It is believed that the latest CIA and DIA procurement estimates are based on the same production figures but differ in pricing estimates. Procurement costs have been affected by the nuclear programmes of the 1970s, steady tank acquisitions, a major ship-building programme in 1983 and aircraft purchases in 1984. Investment priorities - in terms of expenditure - have apparently shifted from strategic programmes to theatre nuclear and conventional forces.
   At the present time it is impossible to develop estimates of Soviet defence expenditure which could be used for precise comparison with the American defence effort. Nor can we demonstrate the real economics of the defence sector. Numerous methodological problems have not been overcome:
   1) most raw data is classified;
   2) most researchers and agencies do not publish defence micro-aggregates, and a consensus baseline has not been developed;
   3) internal Soviet budgeting policies are only roughly understood;
   4) the rouble/dollar exchange rate series do not reflect true market rates nor actual pricing mechanisms;
   5) the relation of defence expenditure and defence industries to the general economy is not well understood;
   6) there is no consensus on a precise general economic data base - such as GDP and national income; and
   7) the very nature of a command-based economy may nullify any comparison with Western economic and defence spending practices. Data on the American defence budget is easily accessible and verifiable; similar Soviet data is not.
   Soviet military activities can be judged to be at least equal to those of the United States. Growth in military spending, having slowed between 1976 and 1982, has now apparently accelerated, despite the fact that expansion in the economy has been only in the 1-4% range for the last five years. There is no indication that defence production is being converted to civilian use. The burden of defence spending on the general economy remains great. The DIA believes that defence outlays in current roubles represented 12-14% of estimated GNP in 1970, 14-16% in 1980, and 15-17% in the mid-1980s.
   The degree of Soviet military and civilian economic integration is far greater than in the West. Nine defence production ministries, the energy and machinery industries and the transportation sector are all involved in military production. Military production is believed to be allocated the best manpower, machinery and resources. Soviet industry bears heavy investment costs on behalf of the military, but military production is not immune to problems facing the general economy. Capital investment was not shifted to the industrial sector as planned in 1980-85 because of capital investment problems in all sectors of the economy. Statements by civilian and military officials concerned at lagging industrial technology and sluggish heavy industry performance, affecting both defence and consumer output, suggest that industry should receive more capital investment. Industrial capital investment has shifted from ferrous metals, light industry and consumer production to energy and (to a lesser degree) machinery during the last five years. The liberal economist Abel Aganbegyan and many military officials are calling for a larger shift to the machinery industry; the 1985 economic plan allocates a 14% increase in capital investment for that industry. The nine defence ministries are not part of the widely publicized economic experiments, although some related ministries are affected. Western reports suggest that there are no radical economic changes taking place in the defence industries. The economic experiments and the main thrusts of economic planning appear to be carefully controlled, suggesting that the Soviet leadership is following a conservative course in improving performance of the military-industrial complex and the general economy. Some Western observers believe that current economic and investment policies are a symptom of an overburdened economy; others perceive more aggressive intentions. Nevertheless, the high priority accorded to defence-related industries suggests that the Soviet economy continues to be capable of supporting large-scale military production. Although the command-based Soviet economy has several bottlenecks, technological inferiorities, inefficiencies and under-utilized industrial capacity, it is judged capable of sustaining or even expanding its defence effort should the Soviet leadership decide to make the sacrifice.
   Although estimates of Soviet defence spending may provide some indication of the burden of defence on the economy and a rough comparison with the American effort, they are only estimates. Until more extensive data are published, current estimates are too imprecise to provide more than a trend line of Soviet activities.
  

Советский Союз

   Стратегические силы
   Несмотря на многочисленные сообщения, свидетельствующие о продолжающейся модернизации советского стратегического вооружения, существенных изменений в общей численности не произошло. Число МБР впродолжает оставаться на уровне 1,398, и никаких изменений в итоговой сумме, хотя число БЧ увеличивается. Есть признаки того, что старые ракеты SS-11 и SS-13 (УР-100 и РТ-2 -ЕТ) должны быть заменены мобильной ракетой, которая сейчас проходит испытания, SS-X-25 (Тополь -ЕТ). Вторая новая ракета, SS-X-24 (Молодец -ЕТ), также близка к развертыванию, сначала в шахтах, а затем, возможно, на железнодорожных мобильных пусковых установках. В течение года высказывались предположения о том, что боеголовки развернутых ракет модернизируются с использованием различных сочетаний средств поражения и наведения. Проверить эти утверждения невозможно.
   Стратегические подводные силы следуют аналогичной схемы. Имеется три ПЛАРБ типа Typhoon (пр.941 -ЕТ) в строю, на одну больше, чем в 1984 году. Каждая лодка несет 20 ракет SS-N-20, каждая с 9 200-кт MIRV. Сообщается о новой лодке типа D-IV (пр.667БРДМ -ЕТ). Она несет 16 SS-N-23 (Штиль -ЕТ). Подробностей об этой ракете пока нет. В то же время 2 подводные лодки типа Y-1 и последние две подводные лодки типа H-II были выведены. Это сокращает количество БРПЛ SS-N-6 на 32 и выводит последнюю стратегическую ракету SS-N-5. Тридцать девять из них остаются в роли ТВД за пределами договора ОСВ. Конечным результатом этих изменений является сокращение общего числа баллистических ракет на две в каждой категории, увеличение числа советских подводных лодок в соответствии с соглашением ОСВ на одну и сокращение числа лодок вне этого соглашения на две.
   Единственное изменение в составе стратегических бомбардировщиков произошло за счет повторного открытия производственной линии Ту-95. Около 25 самолетов модели Ту-95 были произведены в качестве носителей новой крылатой ракеты AS-15 (Х-55 -ЕТ). Эта ракета имеет дальность около 3000 км; детали ее БЧ неизвестны. Стратегический бомбардировщик Blackjack (Ту-160 -ЕТ), который, как сообщается, похож на американский B-1B, все еще находится в стадии разработки.
   Модернизация московской системы ПРО продолжается с развертыванием новых наземных ракет-перехватчиков (SH-04/-08) (А-135 -ЕТ). СССР находится на пороге развертывания ЗРК SA-X-12 (С-300В -ЕТ), который может иметь некоторый потенциал ПРО.
   БРСД SS-20 (Пионер -ЕТ) продолжает развертываться, и имеются свидетельства того, что некоторые ракеты, ранее размещенные в Центральной Азии, были переброшены в места, откуда они могут оказывать поддержку западным оперативным театрам. Согласно имеющейся информации, из 423 ракет, находящихся в настоящее время на вооружении, 216 развернуты в Западной Европе, 162 - на Дальнем Востоке, а 45 ракет, остающихся в Центральной Азии, находятся в процессе передислокации. Число SS-4 сократилось до 120, чуть более половины показателя за прошлый год. Поступали сообщения о том, что в 1984 году вслед за SS-20, начались летные испытания ракеты идентифицированной как SS-X-28 (Пионер-3 -ЕТ), она также несет три боеголовки.
   Силы общего назначения
   За последние месяцы появился ряд деталей, касающихся советских войск, требующих изменения формы справки страны по сравнению с предыдущими годами. В итоге, его последовательность была изменена, чтобы отразить подразделение советских войск в пяти видах вооруженных сил - ракетные войска стратегического назначения, сухопутные войска, ПВО, ВВС и ВМФ - и в порядке очередности. Соответственно, мы разделили компонент противовоздушной обороны, поместив его в соответствующую секцию противовоздушной обороны. Разделение между перехватчиками противовоздушной обороны и истребителями превосходства в воздухе до сих пор не было удовлетворительно уточнено, и некоторые спекуляции неизбежны при попытке определить типы и количество. В этой связи имеется ряд случаев, когда предыдущие оценки могли включать показатель двойного учета. Что касается "регулярных" сухопутных и Военно-Морских Сил, то сравнение с нашим представлением в предыдущие годы не должно вызывать особых трудностей.
   Бронетанковые силы армии несколько увеличились, однако точные цифры, указывающие на конкретные модели, представить не удалось. Мы также осознаем трудности в совмещении общей основы организационной структуры сухопутных войск с числами, указанными в совокупном объеме запасов. Известно, что во всех категориях вооружения для целей мобилизации хранится как новое, так и устаревшее оборудование. Точное состояние запасов с точки зрения типа и числа неизвестно. Опять же, более современные ББМ вступают в эксплуатацию; старые типы продолжают использоваться для повседневных целей.
   Одним из возможных исключений из общего замечания в отношении сухопутных сил является формирование, как представляется, отдельного воздушного компонента, находящегося непосредственно под контролем армии. До сих пор фронтовая авиация считалась дополнением к ресурсам армейских командиров; термин "летающая артиллерия" описывал одну из таких функций. Однако, как и в армиях других стран, очевидно, что такой контроль не считался достаточно жестким или оперативным. В состав новых сил входят как штурмовые, так и транспортные вертолеты; никаких самолетов в их составе выявлено не было.
   Советский флот ввел три класса подводных лодок. Типы M и S (пр.685 и 945 -ЕТ) были зарегистрированы на испытаниях в прошлом году, к ним присоединился новый класс, Akula (пр.971 -ЕТ). Одна подводная лодка класса Y, ранее входившая в состав стратегического флота, в настоящее время переоборудована в подводную лодку крылатых ракет с 24 SLCM SS-N-24 (Метеорит -ЕТ). Хотя общее количество ударных подводных лодок немного выше, чем в 1984 году, новые лодки заменяют некоторые старые модели. Четвертый авианосец типа Киев сейчас на вооружении, и развертывание и учения предполагают, что эти корабли сейчас функционирует как авианосные группы, подобно США. Второй крейсер типа Слава в настоящее время находится на вооружении, хотя заключительные испытания, возможно, еще продолжаются. Продолжается серийное производство эсминцев Современный и Удалой. Существует ряд незначительные изменения в категориях малых кораблей. Сокращается численность ударных ракетных катеров Osa.
   Реорганизация советских войск в соответствии с их концепцией оперативного театра призвана обеспечить систему жесткого контроля над всеми силами и, таким образом, позволить командующему театром использовать все имеющиеся в его распоряжении силы максимально эффективным и контролируемым образом. Советский Союз разделил свои силы на три главных стратегических театра (ГТВД) - Западный, Южный и Дальневосточный - со стратегическими силами и стратегическими резервами, контролируемыми централизованно (хотя их элементы физически расположены в театрах). Главные стратегические театры подразделяются на региональные театры (ТВД), включая силы, действующие на море. Военные округа остаются, закрепленные за ТВД, как диктуют доктрина и география. Их функции включают мобилизацию и административную поддержку; расположенные в них формирования сформируют фронты и армии при мобилизации. Мы показываем развертывание нескольких компонентов советских войск в этих рамках. Мы должны предупредить, что большая часть презентации носит спекулятивный характер и приветствовали бы комментарии и предложения по ее улучшению.
   Оборонные расходы
   27 сентября 1984 года, министр финансов СССР Василий Гарбузов объявил о повышении на 11.8% официальных расходов на оборону в 19.063 млрд рублей ($22,257 млд) за 1985 год, после того, как были заморожены на 17.054 млрд рублей (23,015 млрд долл.) с 1981 года. Официальные государственные расходы на оборону оставались стабильными или несколько сократились в 1970-х годах. Хотя целью крупнейшего военного бюджета СССР мирного времени является, по словам Гарбузова, "повышение боеготовности наших Вооруженных сил, способных дать сокрушительный отпор любому агрессору", советское руководство не раскрыло, какие военные программы требуют дополнительных средств. Самый большой рост расходов за последние 25 лет был представлен как взвешенная реакция на недавнее увеличение американских оборонных расходов.
   Почти все компетентные западные наблюдатели считают, что официальные советские цифры по обороне в одну строчку занижают фактические расходы в десять и более раз и что СССР последовательно перерасходовал США в течение последнего десятилетия. Некоторые несекретные сметы расходов на оборону приводятся в таблице выше.
   Большинство наблюдателей считают, что фактические военные расходы составляют 12-17% от советского ВВП. Большинство временных рядов предполагают стабильный, устойчивый рост общих расходов на оборону в диапазоне 2-4% с середины 1970-х годов. По последним американским и британским оценкам, общие годовые расходы на оборону выросли на 4-5% до 1976 года, замедлились до 2% в 1976-1982 годах и выросли на 3-4% в 1982-1984 годах.
  
    []
   Широко распространены разногласия в отношении того, какие программы следует включить в определение расходов на оборону. Многие западные наблюдатели считают, что СССР включает в свою концепцию национальной обороны гражданскую космическую программу, силы внутренней безопасности, военно-строительные войска и гражданскую оборону. Следовательно, оценки, основанные на этом более широком определении (которые не включены в таблицу), будут иметь тенденцию к завышению советских оборонных расходов по сравнению с традиционными западными оборонными ассигнованиями. Западные оценки отдельно рассчитываются в рублях, что может указывать на оборонную нагрузку на советскую экономику, и долларах, что может облегчить сравнение с американскими программами. Западные советологи используют две основные методики расчета советских оборонных расходов. Некоторые неправительственные аналитики изучают опубликованные бюджетные документы и делают вывод о дополнительных военных расходах по статьям, не связанным с обороной. Большинство аналитиков - в том числе из ЦРУ США, РУМО США и британского Министерства обороны - индивидуально оценивают закупки, RDT&E, O&M, расходы на персонал, конверсионные курсы рубля/доллара и другие показатели, хотя детали редко являются частью публичной записи. И ЦРУ, и РУМО тратят значительные усилия на сбор исходных данных и разработку косвенного экономического анализа для расчета независимых базовых показателей доллара и рубля. Закупки осуществляются на основе расчетных объемов производства, умноженных на скорректированную стоимость аналогичного оружия на Западе. Примерная цена единицы и производственные оценки включают: танк Т-80 $1,2-1,6 м (1982: 400 единиц); танк Т-72 $1,0-1,3 м (1982: 1000 единиц); и БМП-2 $300-450,000 (1982: 4000 единиц). Статистика производства, основанная на фотографической разведке и других разведданных, представляется надежной, однако пробелы в разведданных, неточный экономический анализ, непроверяемые данные и отсутствие точной информации об экспорте оружия и структуре резервных запасов делают этот анализ неточным. Оценки затрат на производство не могут точно отражать истинные модели расходов на закупки, поскольку затраты на ресурсы и пересчет в долларах/рублях трудно поддаются количественной оценке и, что более важно, советские цели закупок устанавливаются в реальном выражении без строгого требования о том, чтобы денежные цены совпадали с реальными затратами на товары и услуги. Расходы на личный состав рассчитываются на основе известных ставок окладов военнослужащих, структуры званий и шкал пайков, которые, как представляется, являются довольно надежными; расходы на личный состав, согласно сообщениям, росли на 2% в год в течение последних десяти лет. Трудно оценить затраты на поддержку личного состава или затраты на призыв и другие меры с точки зрения экономического производства. Косвенная утечка в советскую экономику не является незначительной, хотя прямые затраты на личный состав гораздо меньше, чем на Западе. Опубликованная база данных для счетов RDT&E и O&M минимальна. Советские НИОКР счетов, по словам ЦРУ, 'наименее надежны и практически выведены из советских бюджетных ассигнований на науку, с секретными источниками некие основы микро-анализ. Академия наук руководит - и предположительно финансирует - военные НИОКР, а планирование, разработка и производство осуществляются на основе комплексной межведомственной связи между Министерством обороны, Госпланом, Академией наук, Советом Министров и производственными министерствами. Программы RDT&E, как полагают, находятся в масштабе американских усилий, включая космическую оборону и наземную технологию ПРО. Счета O&M обычно оцениваются как функция закупок и расходов на личный состав; точные расходы на топливо и техническое обслуживание отсутствуют. Оценочные затраты на O&M выросли на 3-4% ежегодно с 1976 года. Считается, что операции в Афганистане не привели к существенному увеличению общих расходов на оборону. Трудности, связанные с обменными курсами, рассматривались в предыдущих изданиях The Military Balance. Большинство наблюдателей считают, что современные методологии запятнаны элементом институциональной предвзятости, тенденцией предполагать зеркальное отражение микроэкономических явлений, ограниченным пониманием Советского бюджетного процесса и советской военно-промышленной политики, а также ограниченным числом советских исследовательских программ за пределами разведывательного сообщества.*

   Отсутствие достоверных, поддающихся открытой проверке данных и политические последствия повышения или понижения сметы расходов вызвали значительные разногласия и не позволили достичь четкого консенсуса в отношении советских моделей расходов, особенно в отношении закупок. Советское правительство не публикует оборонные бюджеты. В 1976 году РУМО и ЦРУ пересмотрели свои оценки оборонных инвестиций в сторону повышения в результате нового анализа, который показал, что советская оборонная промышленность была несколько менее эффективной, чем считалось ранее. В 1983 году ЦРУ снизило свои оценки советских военных закупок. Переходы в производственном цикле не полностью счета за 1976-82 замедление. Военные и гражданские наблюдатели утверждают, что экономические ограничения в сочетании с ростом технологических издержек ограничивают производство. Другими важными факторами являются технические задержки, транспортные трудности и промышленные узкие места в оборонном секторе. Узкие места в закупочном цикле зачастую устраняются за счет растяжек и использования дополнительных средств на НИОКР. Советский Союз продолжает сокращать технологический разрыв, но быстро расширяющуюся технологию трудно внедрить в плановый производственный цикл. Соблюдение соглашений по ОСВ I и II, возможно, имело незначительный эффект. В 1984 году ЦРУ и РУМО открыто не соглашались с советскими расходами на закупки, при этом ЦРУ сообщало о относительно медленном росте на 2% в год с 1976-83 годов, а РУМО о несколько более быстром темпе, который вырос до 5-10% в 1982-83 годах. В настоящее время оба учреждения, как представляется, согласны с тем, что в 1976-1983 годах счета закупок находились в состоянии застоя из-за более низкого, чем ожидалось, объема производства в условиях нехватки ресурсов. По предварительным данным, подъем, начавшийся в 1982 году, составляет порядка 3-6%. Считается, что последние оценки закупок ЦРУ и РУМО основаны на одних и тех же производственных показателях, но отличаются в оценках цен. На закупочные расходы повлияли ядерные программы 1970-х годов, постоянные закупки танков, крупная программа судостроения в 1983 году и закупки самолетов в 1984 году. Очевидно, что инвестиционные приоритеты - с точки зрения расходов - сместились со стратегических программ на тактические ядерные и обычные силы.
   В настоящее время невозможно разработать смету советских оборонных расходов, которая могла бы быть использована для точного сравнения с американскими оборонными усилиями. Мы также не можем продемонстрировать реальную экономику оборонного сектора. Многочисленные методологические проблемы не были преодолены:
   1) большинство необработанных данных классифицируется;
   2) большинство исследователей и агентств не публикуют оборонные затраты, и консенсус-базовый уровень не был разработан;
   3) внутренняя Советская бюджетная политика понимается лишь приблизительно;
   4) курсы рубль/доллар не отражают ни истинных рыночных курсов, ни реальных механизмов ценообразования;
   5) отношение оборонных расходов и оборонной промышленности к экономике в целом недостаточно изучено;
   6) отсутствует консенсус в отношении точной общей экономической базы данных, такой, как ВВП и национальный доход; и
   7) сама природа командной экономики может свести на нет любое сравнение с западной экономической практикой и практикой расходов на оборону. Данные по американскому оборонному бюджету легкодоступны и поддаются проверке; аналогичных советских данных нет.
   Советские военные активы могут быть расценены как минимум равные с США. Рост военных расходов, который замедлился в период 1976-1982 годов, теперь, по-видимому, ускорился, несмотря на то, что рост экономики в последние пять лет составлял лишь 1-4%. Нет никаких признаков того, что оборонное производство переводится на гражданское использование. Бремя расходов на оборону для экономики в целом остается огромным. РУМО считает, что расходы на оборону в текущих рублях составляли 12-14% от расчетного ВНП в 1970 году, 14-16% в 1980 году и 15-17% в середине 1980-х годов.
   Степень советской военной и гражданской экономической интеграции гораздо выше, чем на Западе. Девять министерств оборонно-промышленного комплекса, энергетики, машиностроения и транспорта занимаются производством военной продукции. Считается, что на военное производство выделяется лучшая рабочая сила, техника и ресурсы. Советская промышленность несет большие инвестиционные расходы для военных, но военное производство не застраховано от проблем, стоящих перед экономикой в целом. Капиталовложения не были перенесены в промышленный сектор, как планировалось в 1980-85 годах, из-за проблем с капиталовложениями во всех секторах экономики. Заявления гражданских и военных должностных лиц, обеспокоенных отставанием промышленных технологий и вялыми показателями тяжелой промышленности, влияющими как на оборонную, так и на потребительскую продукцию, свидетельствуют о том, что промышленность должна получать больше капиталовложений. За последние пять лет объем промышленных капиталовложений сместился с черной металлургии, легкой промышленности и потребительского производства на энергетику и (в меньшей степени) машиностроение. Либеральный экономист Абель Аганбегян и многие военные чиновники призывают к более масштабному переходу к машиностроению; экономический план 1985 года предусматривает увеличение капиталовложений в эту отрасль на 14%. Девять министерств ВПК не участвуют в широко освещаемых экономических экспериментах, хотя некоторые из них затрагиваются. Западные доклады свидетельствуют об отсутствии радикальных экономических изменений в оборонной промышленности. Экономические эксперименты и основные направления экономического планирования, по-видимому, тщательно контролируются, что свидетельствует о том, что советское руководство следует консервативному курсу в улучшении показателей военно-промышленного комплекса и экономики в целом. Некоторые западные наблюдатели считают, что текущая экономическая и инвестиционная политика является симптомом перегруженной экономики; другие воспринимают более агрессивные намерения. Тем не менее, высокий приоритет оборонной промышленности говорит о том, что советская экономика по-прежнему способна поддерживать крупномасштабное военное производство. Хотя советская экономика, основанная на командовании, имеет несколько узких мест, технологические недостатки, неэффективность и недостаточно используемый промышленный потенциал, она считается способной поддерживать или даже расширять свои оборонные усилия, если советское руководство решит принести жертву.
   Хотя оценки советских оборонных расходов могут дать некоторое представление о бремени обороны для экономики и приблизительное сравнение с американскими усилиями, они являются лишь оценками. До тех пор, пока не будут опубликованы более обширные данные, текущие оценки слишком неточны, чтобы обеспечить более чем трендовую линию советской деятельности.

THE WARSAW PACT

   We have seen no significant changes in the manpower or equipment inventories of the ground forces of the European countries. There have, however, been a number of increases in both personnel strengths and equipment holdings of their navies and air forces.
   Bulgaria may have increased her Air Force personnel by some 1,200, a rise of about 3.5% which would accord with the changes seen in the inventory. She has almost trebled her holdings of MiG-23BM FGA; there is some evidence that, despite our earlier assessment, some MiG-17s continue to be employed in the interceptor role. Czechoslovakia now has the Su-25 Frogfoot close support aircraft - the first non-Soviet Pact member to receive this type. Nevertheless, her elderly MiG-15s are believed still to be in service in this role. The East German navy is increasing its holdings of Parchim missile corvettes and may have phased out six elderly Hai-class large patrol craft; air force holdings of MiG-23BM have doubled, and some Su-22 have been received, enhancing the close air support fleet. Hungary has also received Su-22s but appears to have the reconnaissance version; our earlier assessment of her attack helicopter inventory was apparently over-generous. Poland and Romania do not appear to have made significant changes over the past twelve months, perhaps partly at least as a result of economic stringencies.
  

ВАРШАВСКИЙ ДОГОВОР

   Существенных изменений в кадровом составе и материально-техническом оснащении сухопутных войск европейских стран не произошло. Вместе с тем было отмечено увеличение как численности личного состава, так и техники в их военно-морских и военно-воздушных силах.
   Болгария, возможно, увеличила военно-воздушные силы на около 1200, рост около 3,5%, что соответствует изменениям в оснащении. Она почти утроила количество истребителей-бомбардировщиков МиГ-23БМ; есть некоторые свидетельства того, что, несмотря на нашу более раннюю оценку, некоторые МиГ-17 продолжают использоваться в качестве перехватчиков. В настоящее время в Чехословакии имеется самолет непосредственной поддержки Су-25 Frogfoot - первый несоветский участник пакта, получивший этот тип. Тем не менее, их старые МиГ-15, как полагают, все еще находятся на службе в этой роли. Военно-морской флот Восточной Германии наращивает свои силы ракетных корветов Parchim и, возможно, прекратил выпуск старых больших патрульных кораблей типа Hai; число МиГ-23BM в ВВС удвоилось, и некоторые Су-22 были получены, что увеличило авиацию непосредственной поддержки с воздуха. Венгрия также получила Су-22, но, по-видимому, разведывательную версию; наша предыдущая оценка числа их ударных вертолетов была, по-видимому, чрезмерной. Польша и Румыния, по-видимому, не претерпели существенных изменений за последние двенадцать месяцев, возможно, отчасти в результате экономических трудностей.

THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY

   The need to strengthen the Alliance's conventional forces, and to make better use of the increasingly constrained economic resources, through more co-ordinated production and greater internal efficiency, dominated defence discussions during 1984 and 1985. Though President Reagan made his Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) proposal on 23 March 1983, discussions not only about its impact on arms-control negotiations but also about the possible effect that such a programme might have on spending on conventional weapons did not really surface in public until early in 1985. European participation in the SDI programme has been sought, and the whole question of European developments in high technology in the weapons field is receiving greater prominence. The Warsaw Pact has a considerable variety of missile types which can be used against Europe, while European nations have no means to protect European territory against them. Thus one of the issues for the Alliance is whether, and to what extent, the SDI should apply to Europe. This has by no means been resolved.
   Joint procurement programmes that have been successful include that for the NATO Standard E-3A Airborne Warning and Control Aircraft, 18 of which are now in service or are being fitted out for completion by mid-1986. Unfortunately, Britain's intended contribution to this effort, the AEW Nimrod, is well behind schedule and much over cost. The joint Anglo-German-Italian Tornado programme continues, with Britain now receiving her Air Defence versions. A five-nation agreement to co-operate in the design and manufacture of a standard medium troop transport or anti-submarine warfare helicopter for the 1990s, EH-101, has been signed by Britain, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Contacts between Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain over a similar programme for a European fighter failed to generate agreement over the basic concept of its role and size and over work-sharing agreements, and a smaller consortium without France is to form.
   Individual programmes include the continuing F-16 purchases by Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Turkey. Canada will bring her new F/A-18s (CF-18) into service to replace her elderly CF-104 Starfighters in Germany from July 1985. Denmark will also retire her F-104s when her final order of 12 F-16s is delivered. Germany's procurement of tanks and self-propelled anti-tank systems continues to enhance her ground forces' defensive capabilities. The Italian navy has received its eighth Maestrale guided-weapons frigate, although the future role, and therefore equipment, of its new carrier continues to be a matter of controversy. The Netherlands has increased the size of her ground forces by about 4%, has more than doubled her holdings of Leopard II MBT and is upgrading her artillery holdings. She has increased her order for F-16s. Norway is reorganizing her ground forces to make more efficient use of her mobilizable reserves and national resources, especially for the defence of northern Norway. The Portuguese Army has acquired 30 Saladin armoured cars which, though not new, have permitted the retirement of even older Panhards. The country is faced with an extensive modernization programme which is quite beyond its economic resources. Turkey, too has a very large modernization task ahead. Her ageing F-104 aircraft, many obtained as other NATO members retire theirs, are showing signs of coming to the end of their service life. A programme to licence-build F-16s will help to improve her air combat capability. Greece has ordered 40 Mirage 2000 from France, but a question-mark remains over the order for a similar number of F-16 from the US.
   The British Polaris upgrading programme involving the Chevaline penetrating aids is now virtually complete, and the missiles are being re-engined; the modified missiles are being introduced as the Resolution-class boats are given their routine refits. Long-lead items for their Trident replacements have been ordered.
   France has now brought into service her sixth SSBN, in which is deployed the new M-4 missile with 6 MIRV. Her programme of modifying the elderly Mirage IV to take the ASMP nuclear air-to-surface missile is in hand, with 18 conversions expected by the end of 1986.
   There has been considerable discussion in NATO about the technologies for long-range interdiction, particularly in the context of the Air Land Battle 2000 and Follow-on Forces Attack debate. Financial constraints and impending manpower shortages would seem to be forcing the Alliance increasingly to look to high technology to solve its problems. The enhancement of command, control, communications and intelligence (C3I), air defence and anti-tank defence, together with other force improvements, are all under study. While NATO's aim remains that of deterring any attack, an improved ability to contain an attack if deterrence fails and the raising of the nuclear threshold are at the forefront of its needs - and it is hard to see how either of these can be achieved without substantial additional resources. Although Ministers have given rhetorical support to the commitment to maintain a 3% growth of defence spending in real terms over the forthcoming years, very few governments seem likely to meet this target.
   Official NATO and IMF data suggest that the 3% goal has been met only by the US, Britain, Canada and France. Canada is certainly attempting to rebuild her conventional forces, but the others (especially France and the US) devote a significant proportion of their defence budgets to their nuclear forces. If spending on these nuclear forces is excluded, the national average growth rates are some 6.5% for the US, about 4.0% for Britain and perhaps 2.0% for France. In Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands, real defence spending actually decreased in 1983 and 1984. Data from other official sources such as Central Banks, which use different accounting procedures, suggest that in almost all NATO countries actual defence expenditures may indeed be lower than Defence Ministries have claimed.
   The relative positions of the US and her European allies must be viewed, in part, in the light of their respective economic climates. In 1983 the US economy was characterized by strong growth, low inflation, declining unemployment and a rising dollar. This growth continued in 1984, albeit at a slower rate, and has slowed further throughout the first half of 1985. The economic recovery of the NATO Allies continues to lag behind that of the United States. Their economic performance has been characterized by rising unemployment, mixed economic growth, declining exchange rates - which have a significant effect upon a country's ability to buy military equipment from the United States - severe capital flight to the higher interest rates paid in North America, mixed success against domestic inflation, and social pressures on the budget. Virtually all West European states have, with varying degrees of success, introduced measures to control inflation and to cut their respective budget deficits, but must meet rather ambitious social welfare programmes and high unemployment levels which place heavy demands on welfare budgets. Nor is there the same perception of imminent threat as in the US, although there is no intention of compromising freedom. In the light of these circumstances, most West European governments believe that they are spending all they can afford on their defence establishments.
   West Europeans are also sceptical of what they tend to regard as simplistic comparisons based on 'standard' criteria for defence expenditures. European nations argue that they bear other defence burdens, less clearly identified (see also pp. 197-9). These include indirect economic and social costs, such as those stemming from conscription (applicable to most European armed forces), while military use of public facilities and land, especially in West Germany, have no equivalent in the US. Because of their nature it is difficult to assess the true costs of these additional burdens, but they are politically relevant.
   Nor is it easy to forecast when this situation is likely to ease. Operation, maintenance and capital costs are demonstrably higher in the military sector and are therefore subject to different inflationary pressures, usually higher than in the general economy. The OECD predicts that the US recovery will encourage economic growth in Europe and Canada through 1984 and 1985, but, as the OECD has said, 'with tight policies - dictated by concerns over budget deficits and inflation fears - the recovery outside North America seems likely to be weak and hesitant by past standards'.
   The 3% real growth target was intended to upgrade conventional defences, to develop NATO infrastructure, to re-distribute NATO's costs more broadly across the Alliance, to facilitate US reinforcement of Europe and, overall, to reduce NATO's reliance on nuclear weapons. Though that figure is unlikely to be met, it must be stated that most West European countries managed to increase their outlays and improve their military posture during the 1970s, when real defence spending in the US was decreasing. Some of the cushion from that investment still remains, although replacement of existing equipment by the more sophisticated equipment of the next generation will be costly. If it is true that little additional real investment can be achieved, there may be an increasingly strong initiatives to ensure more effective political and fiscal control of defence expenditure and military resources.
   Economic pressures continue to have a significant impact on all national defence procurement. There is some evidence of closer attention to priorities, although budgetary constraints often impose delays in production schedules which result in overall increases in the unit costs of individual items. Co-operation in arms procurement, long a goal of NATO planners, continues to take place, but at a rather desultory pace. However, agreement has been reached to begin a programme for the procurement of a NATO Standard Frigate. Initial US hesitation was overcome, but how many will be ordered still remains to be seen.
   There seems little doubt that the incorporation of advanced technology is going to add yet more inflationary pressure to defence procurement. In 1984 this was estimated by the US Congressional Budget Office to be 6.4% annually in real terms. Others suggest that real annual increases of the order of 8% are not unlikely. At the same time, the cost of munitions, spare parts and support facilities are likely to rise, as NATO attempts to raise stock levels to sustain a longer period of conventional conflict.
  

СЕВЕРОАТЛАНТИЧЕСКИЙ ДОГОВОР

   Необходимость укрепления обычных вооруженных сил Североатлантического союза и более эффективного использования все более ограниченных экономических ресурсов посредством более скоординированного производства и повышения внутренней эффективности доминировала в дискуссиях по вопросам обороны в 1984 и 1985 годах. Хотя 23 марта 1983 года президент Рейган выдвинул свое предложение по стратегической оборонной инициативе (СОИ), дискуссии не только о ее воздействии на переговоры по контролю над вооружениями, но и о возможном воздействии, которое такая программа могла бы оказать на расходы на обычные вооружения, в действительности не всплыли публично до начала 1985 года. Стремление обеспечить европейское участие в программе СОИ, и весь вопрос о европейских достижениях в области высоких технологий в области вооружений приобретает все большее значение. Варшавский договор имеет значительное разнообразие типов ракет, которые могут быть использованы против Европы, в то время как европейские страны не имеют средств для защиты европейской территории от них. Таким образом, один из вопросов для Североатлантического союза заключается в том, следует ли и в какой степени применять СОИ в отношении Европы. Это никоим образом не было решено.
   Успешные совместные программы закупок включают в себя стандартные самолеты предупреждения и управления Е-3А НАТО, 18 из которых в настоящее время находятся на вооружении или готовятся к поступлению к середине 1986 года. К сожалению, предполагаемый вклад Великобритании в эти усилия, ДРЛО Nimrod, значительно отстает от графика и намного превышает начальные затраты. Совместная англо-германо-итальянская программа Tornado продолжается, Англия сейчас получает его версию противовоздушной обороны. Британия, Франция, Германия, Италия и Нидерланды подписали соглашение о сотрудничестве в разработке и производстве стандартного транспортного и противолодочного военного вертолета среднего класса на 90-е годы EH-101. Контакты между Великобританией, Францией, Германией, Италией и Испанией по аналогичной программе для европейского истребителя не привели к достижению согласия в отношении базовой концепции его роли и размеров, а также соглашений о совместном выполнении работ, и предстоит сформировать меньший консорциум без Франции.
   Отдельные программы включают продолжающиеся закупки F-16 Бельгией, Данией, Нидерландами и Турцией. Канада введет в эксплуатацию новые F/A-18 (CF-18) для замены старых истребителей CF-104 в Германии с июля 1985 года. Дания также отправит на слом свои F-104, когда будет окончательно поставлен ее заказ на 12 F-16. Закупка в Германии танков и самоходных ПТРК продолжает укреплять оборонительные возможности сил. Итальянский флот получил восьмой фрегат с управляемым вооружением Maestrale, хотя будущая роль и, следовательно, оборудование его нового авианосца по-прежнему вызывает споры. Нидерланды увеличили численность своих сухопутных войск примерно на 4%, более чем удвоили число танков Leopard II и модернизируют свои артиллерийские запасы. Они увеличили заказ на F-16. Норвегия реорганизует свои сухопутные войска, с тем чтобы более эффективно использовать свои мобилизационные резервы и национальные ресурсы, особенно для обороны Северной Норвегии. Португальская армия приобрела 30 бронированных автомобилей Saladin, которые, хотя и не новые, позволили снять еще более старым Panhard. Страна ведет обширную программу модернизации, которая выходит далеко за рамки ее экономических ресурсов. Перед Турцией тоже стоит очень большая задача модернизации. Ее стареющие самолеты F-104, многие из которых были получены в результате их передачи от других членов НАТО, демонстрируют признаки окончания срока службы. Программа лицензионного строительства F-16 поможет улучшить ее боеспособность. Греция заказала 40 Mirage 2000 во Франции, но вопрос остается над заказом на аналогичное количество F-16 из США.
   Британская программа модернизации Polaris с использованием проникающих средств Chevaline в настоящее время практически завершена, и ракеты переоснащаются; модифицированные ракеты вводятся по мере того, как лодки класса Resolution проходят плановую модернизацию. Более дальнобойные Trident заказаны.
   Франция сейчас ввела в строй шестую ПЛАРБ, в котором развернута новая ракета М-4 с 6 ГЧ ИН. Ее программа модификации устаревшего Mirage IV для доставки ядерной ракеты класса "воздух-поверхность" ASMP уже осуществляется, и к концу 1986 года ожидается 18 конверсий.
   В НАТО активно обсуждаются технологии для перехвата на большие расстояния, особенно в контексте воздушного сражения 2000 года и последующих дебатов о силах нападения. Финансовые трудности и надвигающаяся нехватка рабочей силы, как представляется, заставляют Североатлантический союз все чаще прибегать к использованию высоких технологий для решения своих проблем. Изучаются вопросы укрепления командования, управления, связи и разведки (C3I), противовоздушной и противотанковой обороны, а также другие усовершенствования сил. В то время как цель НАТО по-прежнему заключается в сдерживании любого нападения, улучшение способности сдерживать нападение в случае неудачи сдерживания и повышение ядерного порога находятся на переднем крае ее потребностей - и трудно понять, как можно достичь любой из этих целей без существенных дополнительных ресурсов. Хотя министры дали риторическую поддержку обязательству поддерживать 3-процентный рост расходов на оборону в реальном выражении в предстоящие годы, очень немногие правительства, похоже, достигнут этой цели.
   Официальные данные НАТО и МВФ предполагают, что цель в 3% была достигнута только США, Великобританией, Канадой и Францией. Канада, безусловно, пытается восстановить свои обычные силы, но другие страны (особенно Франция и США) выделяют значительную часть своих оборонных бюджетов на ядерные силы. Если исключить расходы на эти ядерные силы, то средние национальные темпы роста составляют около 6,5% для США, около 4,0% для Великобритании и, возможно, 2,0% для Франции. В Бельгии, Дании и Нидерландах реальные расходы на оборону фактически сократились в 1983 и 1984 годах. Данные из других официальных источников, таких как центральные банки, которые используют различные процедуры учета, позволяют предположить, что почти во всех странах НАТО фактические расходы на оборону действительно могут быть ниже, чем утверждали Министерства обороны.
   Относительные позиции США и ее европейских союзников должны рассматриваться, в частности, в свете их соответствующих экономических условий. В 1983 году экономика США характеризовалась сильным ростом, низкой инфляцией, снижением безработицы и ростом доллара. Этот рост продолжался и в 1984 году, хотя и более медленными темпами, и еще более замедлился в первой половине 1985 года. Экономическое восстановление стран НАТО продолжает отставать от США. Их экономические показатели характеризовались ростом безработицы, малым экономическим ростом, снижением обменных курсов, которые оказывают значительное влияние на способность страны покупать военную технику в Соединенных Штатах, резким бегством капитала в страны с более высокими процентными ставками, выплачиваемыми в Северной Америке, малым успехом в борьбе с внутренней инфляцией и социальным давлением на бюджет. Практически все западноевропейские государства с разной степенью успеха приняли меры по сдерживанию инфляции и сокращению своего соответствующего бюджетного дефицита, однако они должны выполнить довольно амбициозные программы социального обеспечения и оплатить высокий уровень безработицы, которые предъявляют большие требования к бюджетам социального обеспечения. Также нет такого же восприятия неминуемой угрозы, как в США, хотя нет никакого намерения компрометировать свободу. В свете этих обстоятельств большинство западноевропейских правительств считают, что они тратят все, что могут себе позволить, на свои оборонные предприятия.
   Западноевропейцы также скептически относятся к тому, что они склонны считать упрощенными сравнениями, основанными на "стандартных" критериях расходов на оборону. Европейские страны утверждают, что они несут другое бремя обороны, менее четко обозначенное (см. Также стр. 197-9). К ним относятся косвенные экономические и социальные издержки, такие как расходы, связанные с призывом на военную службу (применимо к большинству европейских вооруженных сил), в то время как военное использование общественных объектов и земли, особенно в Западной Германии, не имеет эквивалента в США. В силу их характера трудно оценить реальные издержки, связанные с этим дополнительным бременем, однако они имеют политическое значение.
   Не так легко предсказать, когда эта ситуация, вероятно, облегчится. Эксплуатационные и капитальные затраты в военном секторе явно выше и поэтому подвержены различному инфляционному давлению, обычно более высокому, чем в экономике в целом. ОЭСР прогнозирует, что восстановление экономики США будет стимулировать экономический рост в Европе и Канаде до 1984 и 1985 годов, но, как сказала ОЭСР, "при жесткой политике , продиктованной опасениями по поводу бюджетного дефицита и инфляционных страхов, восстановление за пределами Северной Америки, вероятно, будет слабым и нерешительным по прошлым стандартам".
   Цель реального роста в 3% была направлена на модернизацию обычных средств обороны, развитие инфраструктуры НАТО, более широкое распределение расходов НАТО по всему Североатлантическому союзу, содействие укреплению США Европы и, в целом, снижение зависимости НАТО от ядерного оружия. Хотя эта цифра вряд ли будет достигнута, следует отметить, что большинству западноевропейских стран удалось увеличить свои расходы и улучшить свою военную позицию в 1970-х годах, когда реальные расходы на оборону в США сокращались. Часть средств, выделенных на эти цели, все еще остается, хотя замена существующего вооружения на более современное вооружение следующего поколения будет дорогостоящим. Если действительно можно добиться незначительных дополнительных реальных инвестиций, то могут быть выдвинуты все более решительные инициативы по обеспечению более эффективного политического и финансового контроля за оборонными расходами и военными ресурсами.
   Экономическое давление по-прежнему оказывает значительное воздействие на все национальные оборонные закупки. Имеются некоторые свидетельства более пристального внимания к приоритетам, хотя бюджетные ограничения часто приводят к задержкам в графиках производства, что приводит к общему увеличению удельных затрат по отдельным статьям. Сотрудничество в области закупок вооружений, которое уже давно является целью планировщиков НАТО, по-прежнему осуществляется, но довольно малыми темпами. Однако достигнута договоренность о начале программы закупки стандартного фрегата НАТО. Первоначальное колебание США было преодолено, но сколько будет заказано еще предстоит выяснить.
   Представляется маловероятным, что внедрение передовых технологий приведет к еще большему инфляционному давлению на оборонные закупки. В 1984 году бюджетное управление Конгресса США оценивало этот показатель в 6,4% в год в реальном выражении. Другие предполагают, что реальное ежегодное увеличение порядка 8% не маловероятно. В то же время стоимость боеприпасов, запасных частей и вспомогательных средств, вероятно, возрастет, поскольку НАТО пытается повысить уровень запасов для поддержания более длительного периода обычного конфликта.

OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES

   Albania: Albania joined the Warsaw Pact in 1955 but left it in 1968, moving into a closer relationship with China. After Chairman Mao's death in 1976, Chinese aid was progressively reduced. Since 1978 little military aid has been received from any source. The Constitution precludes the establishment of foreign bases or the stationing of foreign troops in Albania.
   Austria: Austria's constitution contains a declaration of permanent neutrality. A small indigenous arms industry supplies many of the armed forces' needs and provides a few foreign sales.
   Cyprus: In 1959 Britain, Greece and Turkey signed a Treaty of Guarantee assuring the independence, territorial integrity and security of the bi-national Republic of Cyprus. Under this Treaty Britain maintains a garrison in two Sovereign Base Areas at Akrotiri and Dhekelia. An associated Treaty of Alliance with the Republic entitles Greece and Turkey to maintain contingents on the island. In 1963 a constitutional dispute led the Turkish-Cypriot community to withdraw from the central government and, in 1983, to form the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus'. The Turkish-Cypriot and Greek-Cypriot communities each maintain armed forces. The United Nations has interposed a peace-keeping force (UNFICYP) between the communities since 1964. The United States has a signals establishment on the island.
   Finland: Pursues a policy of neutrality. Under the 1948 Treaty of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance, Finland is committed to repel aggression against herself or against the USSR through Finnish territory. In such a case, Finland can, if needed, request assistance from the USSR, subject to special agreement. Finland maintains a permanent UN peace-keeping force and has provided personnel for UN duties since 1956. Finland's own defence industry provides nearly half her needs. Her major arms systems have been acquired from the USSR and Sweden, together with special equipment from Britain, France and the United States.
   Ireland: Independent since 1922, Ireland plays an active role in UN peace-keeping operations. With no significant arms industry, Ireland has bought arms from many sources, e.g. Britain, France, Sweden and the US.
   Malta: After independence in 1964, Malta had a defence agreement with Britain. The island was a NATO base from 1972 to 1979. In September 1980 Malta undertook to remain neutral, outside any alliances, and banned foreign troops and bases, including Soviet, warship docking facilities. Italy agreed to consultation if Malta were attacked and to guarantee her independence (1980); this agreement was not renewed in 1984. In December 1981 France and Algeria also agreed to support and guarantee her neutrality. In November 1984, and despite disputes over territorial waters, Libya signed a five-year Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation under which Malta agreed to exclude foreign military bases and Libya to answer requests for assistance against aggression.
   Sweden: Neutral in both World Wars, Sweden has a permanent peace-keeping organization which has provided personnel for UN duties since 1964. Her self-defence organization is largely supported by a domestic defence industry but some external purchases have been made, mainly from the United States.
   Switzerland: Permanently neutral since 1815, Switzerland belongs to no defence alliance. Her small armaments industry produces most of her equipment and plays a small role in the Swiss export trade.
   Yugoslavia: Expelled from the Cominform in 1948, she has since been a leading force in the Non-Aligned Movement, maintaining a balanced relationship with each Bloc. She has no defence alliances, though a limited naval repair agreement exists with the USSR. She has her own defence industry but has bought most of her major military equipment from the USSR.
  

ДРУГИЕ ЕВРОПЕЙСКИЕ ГОСУДАРСТВА

   Албания: Албания присоединилась к Варшавскому Договору в 1955 году, но покинула его в 1968 году, перейдя к более тесным отношениям с Китаем. После смерти председателя Мао в 1976 году китайская помощь постепенно сокращалась. С 1978 года из любых источников поступает мало военной помощи. Конституция запрещает создание иностранных баз или размещение иностранных войск в Албании.
   Австрия: Конституция Австрии содержит декларацию о постоянном нейтралитете. Небольшая местная оружейная промышленность удовлетворяет многие потребности Вооруженных сил и обеспечивает небольшой экспорт.
   Кипр: в 1959 году Великобритания, Греция и Турция подписали Договор о гарантии обеспечения независимости, территориальной целостности и безопасности двухнациональной республики Кипр. В соответствии с этим договором Британия содержит гарнизон в двух суверенных районах базирования в Акротири и Декелии. Ассоциированный договор о союзе с Республикой дает Греции и Турции право содержать контингенты на острове. В 1963 году из-за Конституционного спора турко-кипрская община вышла из состава центрального правительства, а в 1983 году образовала Турецкую Республику Северного Кипра. Каждая из общин киприотов-турок и киприотов-греков имеет вооруженные силы. С 1964 года Организация Объединенных Наций осуществляет взаимодействие между общинами в рамках миротворческих сил (UNFICYP). США имеет связное оборудование на острове.
   Финляндия: проводит политику нейтралитета. В соответствии с Договором о дружбе, сотрудничестве и взаимной помощи 1948 года Финляндия привержена отражению агрессии против нее самой или против СССР через территорию Финляндии. В таком случае Финляндия может, при необходимости, обратиться за помощью к СССР по специальному соглашению. Финляндия поддерживает постоянные миротворческие силы ООН и предоставляет персонал для выполнения обязанностей ООН с 1956 года. Собственная оборонная промышленность Финляндии обеспечивает почти половину ее потребностей. Ее основные системы вооружения были приобретены в СССР и Швеции, а также специальное оборудование в Великобритании, Франции и Соединенных Штатах.
   Ирландия: независимая с 1922 года, Ирландия играет активную роль в миротворческих операциях ООН. Не имея значительной оружейной промышленности, Ирландия закупала оружие из многих источников, например из Великобритании, Франции, Швеции и США.
   Мальта: после обретения независимости в 1964 году Мальта заключила соглашение об обороне с Великобританией. Остров был базой НАТО с 1972 по 1979 год. В сентябре 1980 года Мальта обязалась сохранять нейтралитет, не вступая в какие-либо союзы, и запретила присутствие иностранных войск и баз, в том числе советских, и причаливать военным кораблям. Италия согласилась проводить консультации в случае нападения на Мальту и гарантировать ее независимость (1980 год); это соглашение не было продлено в 1984 году. В декабре 1981 года Франция и Алжир также согласились поддержать и гарантировать ее нейтралитет. В ноябре 1984 года, несмотря на споры по поводу территориальных вод, Ливия подписала пятилетний договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве, в соответствии с которым Мальта согласилась исключить иностранные военные базы, а Ливия - ответить на просьбы об оказании помощи в борьбе с агрессией.
   Швеция: нейтральная в обеих Мировых войнах Швеция имеет постоянную миротворческую организацию, которая предоставляет персонал для выполнения обязанностей ООН с 1964 года. Ее организация самообороны в значительной степени поддерживается отечественной оборонной промышленностью, но некоторые внешние закупки были сделаны, главным образом, из Соединенных Штатов.
   Швейцария: постоянно нейтральная с 1815 года, Швейцария не принадлежит ни к одному оборонному альянсу. Ее небольшая оружейная промышленность производит большую часть ее оборудования и играет небольшую роль в швейцарской экспортной торговле.
   Югославия: исключенная из Коминформ в 1948 году, она с тех пор является ведущей силой в Движении неприсоединения, поддерживая сбалансированные отношения с каждым блоком. У нее нет оборонных союзов, хотя с СССР существует ограниченное соглашение о военно-морском ремонте. Она имеет собственную оборонную промышленность, но большую часть своей основной военной техники приобрела в СССР.

The Middle East and the Mediterranean

   Bilateral Agreements with External Powers
   The Soviet Union signed a fifteen-year Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation with Iraq in April 1972 and a further agreement in December 1978. A similar treaty was signed with Syria on 8 October 1980, under which Soviet air defence units were deployed in Syria. A Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation with South Yemen was ratified in February 1980, and an agreement of Joint Co-operation was signed in January 1983. Soviet units use Aden's naval and air facilities. All three countries have received significant Soviet arms deliveries. Despite this, Iraq has tried to broaden her contacts with the West, particularly with France and Italy. In November 1979 Iran unilaterally abrogated two paragraphs of a 1921 treaty under which the USSR reserves the right to intervene in Iran's internal affairs if a third country threatens to attack her from Iranian territory. Moscow has refused to accept this abrogation. A 20-year Treaty of Friendship between the USSR and North Yemen was signed in October 1984; details are not known.
   Bulgaria and the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen (South Yemen) signed a Protocol for Co-operation in April 1980 and a Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation on 14 November 1981. Similar agreements with Hungary were reported in April and November 1981. Libya signed treaties of Friendship and Co-operation with Bulgaria and Romania in January 1983. Sudan and Romania signed an agreement providing technical co-operation and training in November 1982.
   The United States concluded a mutual defence agreement with Israel in July 1952. A strategic co-operation understanding, reported in early 1982, led in March 1984 to a series of agreements covering aid and support, details of which have still not been published. A 1981 agreement enables the US to use Egyptian bases, but with significant Egyptian reservations. A similar agreement was reached with Morocco in May 1982. An agreement has been concluded with Oman to provide economic and military aid in exchange for permission to use Salalah and Masirah as staging bases. An agreement with Bahrain permits the US Navy to use port facilities. In November 1981 a strategic co-operation agreement was signed with Tunisia.
   Britain concluded treaties of friendship with Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in August 1971 and a defence co-operation agreement with Oman in June 1985. She has supplied arms to Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and the UAE. France has continuing arms-supply arrangements with Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. West Germany provided technical training assistance to Sudan under a 1982 agreement. Spain has reached a defence agreement with Morocco enabling her navy to use Moroccan ports; the benefits to Morocco have not been identified.
   China signed a Treaty of Friendship with North Yemen in 1964, under which minor arms were provided. Arms and spare parts were sent to Egypt under agreements signed in 1978/9 and 1983. A military co-operation agreement was signed with Sudan in January 1982 and arms supplied. North Korea and Libya signed a Treaty of Alliance or Friendship and Cooperation in November 1982 which permits exchanges of military data, specialists and supplies.
   Peace-Keeping Forces
   The United Nations withdrew the 4,000-man United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) from the Sinai on 24 July 1979; its duties were temporarily assumed by the United Nations Truce Supervisory Organization (UNTSO), 298 officers (Observer Group Beirut some 50 observers), which has monitored the cease-fire on Israel's northern border since 1949. The Egyptian-Israeli border is now patrolled by the 2,642-man Multi-national Force and Observers (MFO) under the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty; contingents come from the US (1,186), Australia (which will be replaced by Canada in 1986) (109), Britain (37), Colombia (500), Fiji (500), France (43), Italy (90), the Netherlands (102) and Uruguay (75).
   The United Nations also deploys in the Golan Heights the 1,323-man Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), made up of contingents from Austria (533), Canada (226), Finland (411) and Poland (153).
   The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) consists of some 5,822 men from France (1,380), Fiji (626), Finland (500), Ghana (709), Ireland (730), Italy (48), Nepal (666), Netherlands (162), Norway (851) and Sweden (150).
   Arrangements within the Region
   Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and North and South Yemen are members of the League of Arab States (Egypt's membership was suspended in March 1979). Among its subsidiary bodies are the Arab Supreme Defence Council, comprising Foreign and Defence Ministers (set up in 1950), the Permanent Military Committee of army general staffs (1950), which is an advisory body, and the Unified Arab Command (1964).
   Syrian and Palestine Liberation Army forces, comprising the Arab Deterrent Force, remain in northern Lebanon. Syria has reinforced her component and maintains a measure of control over the Arab guerrilla group elements in the Beqa'a Valley and northern Lebanon. Israeli forces, supported by a Lebanese Christian militia and a Home Guard, control a stip of territory in the south.
   Algeria and Libya signed a defence agreement in 1975. Egypt and Sudan came to a joint defence agreement in 1977; its present status is unclear. The Joint Defence Council's minutes of December 1981 were tantamount to another agreement, and in October 1982 an 'Integration Charter' was signed covering, inter alia, military policy; the status of this, too, is unclear. Saudi Arabia has long supported Morocco against Polisario guerrillas; the two countries signed a security pact in February 1982. A Mutual Defence Agreement between Libya and Morocco was ratified in September 1984; no change in Saudi policy is reported. Libya signed a 'Strategic Agreement' with Iran in June 1985; no details have been released. An understanding between Saudi Arabia and Iraq is believed to have been signed in 1979. Jordan and Iraq ratified a defence agreement in March 1981. The Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC), created in May 1981 by Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, is developing a mutual defence structure to include a joint 'rapid deployment' force, air defence, transport and procurement. It is being reinforced by internal security pacts between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, Qatar, Oman (1982) and the UAE. A draft Gulf security agreement is being considered. Libya, South Yemen and Ethiopia formed an Aden Treaty Tripartite Alliance in 1981; it included a joint defence commitment but nothing more concrete has been reported. North and South Yemen have agreed to a merger (1981); the details remain obscure. Jordan, Morocco and North Yemen- have announced the departure of unspecified numbers of volunteers to assist Iraq against Iran, but no formed units have been despatched. Iraq has stated that multi-national composite units have been formed; their roles are obscure. Sudan and Ethiopia agreed a regime of security, stability and non-interference in each other's internal affairs in July 1982. Actions since the coup in April 1985 suggest that this agreement is being implemented.
   Arms movements in the region are peculiarly complex. Egypt has supplied arms to Morocco, Sudan and Iraq. Algeria and Libya have supplied arms to Polisario, and most Arab countries have ' applied Palestinian guerrillas with arms. In some cases a third nation funds the recipient's foreign arms purchases. Iran has reportedly received arms, supplies and spares from, inter alia, Israel, North Korea and Eastern Europe and is also buying material on the open market in Western Europe. Some Chinese weapons have been identified in Iranian service. Iraq has apparently recently received arms from Egypt, the USSR, China, North Korea, France, Portugal and Brazil.
   In 1975 an Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI) was set up in Egypt under the aegis of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and Sudan to encourage indigenous Arab arms production. Arab involvement ended following Egypt's rapprochement with Israel. Egypt has been entering into co-production agreements with Britain, France, the US and Yugoslavia. To replace the AOI, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE agreed in 1979 to set up an S8-billion arms industry in the UAE. This proposal is still being studied by the GCC.
   Military Developments
   In the Gulf war Iraq's predominance in materiel continues to counter Iranian numerical superiority. Reports of Iraq's employment of chemical agents and of Iran's use of surface-to-surface missiles add new dimensions to the conflict. Iraq has also made greater use of her superior air capability to attack Iranian urban areas, dominate the immediate battlefield and interdict tanker traffic to Iran's northern oil facilities. Iraq's financial reserves are exhausted, and her international debt is enormous. Given the state of the world's oil markets, the new pipelines she is building are unlikely to bring in the revenue she needs. Iran, for the time being at least, is winning the economic war, she still cannot win on the ground. Iraq's only hope of breaking the stalemate appears to lie in attacking Iranian civilian and oil targets with a view to weakening popular support for the regime. This gambit has not been successful in the past and has obvious political disadvantages.
   Israel continues to maintain her position of conventional superiority over any of her neighbours, but the emergence among the Lebanese guerrilla groups of the myth that the IDF was defeated and driven from Lebanon bodes ill for future peace. Despite claims by Polisario, the Moroccan 'Great Wall' seems largely to have curtailed incursions and has established a secure zone in which relatively normal economic development is taking place.
   Economic Factors
   Despite the international economic situation, the Middle East and North African countries in general were able to attain a GDP growth rate of some 2.5%. The oil-producing countries, however, showed a continuous decline in revenues, as output fell and prices were lowered. Countries like Saudi Arabia experienced a drastic reduction in oil exports, from a high of 384 bn riyals ($104 bn) in 1982 to 165 bn riyals ($47 bn) in 1984. In consequence, most governments had to adopt deficit financing and draw on their international reserves. While imports into the OAPEC countries have generally fallen, this trend was riot reflected in arms acquisitions. The Middle East and North Africa remains the largest importer of weapons in the world, largely due to the continuing war in the Gulf as well as the conflicts in the Lebanon, Chad and the western Sahara.
   While the oil-producing states have substantial financial reserves, many of the others are faced with severe debt problems. In terms of debt/GDP ratio Israel leads with 130%, followed by Sudan and Morocco with 112%; Egypt and Jordan have debt burdens of 65%, while those of most other countries of the region are in the 10-25% range. In practically all countries inflation is manageable, although in some of the Arab countries (Sudan, Egypt and Iran) it is acute. Israel's inflation has assumed Latin American proportions - having reached 450% at the end of 1984, and 750% by mid-1985 - and her inordinate dependence on foreign aid (especially from the United States) has substantially reduced her economic performance. Because of the continuing war in the Gulf, Iraq is heavily dependent on large aid, grants and credits (estimated to total some $45 bn since 1980). Iran, on the other hand, has managed to maintain fair economic growth despite the war and with little foreign assistance.
  

Ближний Восток и Северная Африка

   Двусторонние соглашения с внешними державами
   Советский Союз подписал пятнадцатилетний договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Ираком в апреле 1972 года и еще одно соглашение в декабре 1978 года. Аналогичный договор был подписан с Сирией 8 октября 1980 года, по которому в Сирии были развернуты советские подразделения ПВО. В феврале 1980 года был ратифицирован Договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Южным Йеменом, а в январе 1983 года было подписано соглашение о совместном сотрудничестве. Советские части используют военно-морские и воздушные средства Адена. Все три страны получили значительные поставки советского оружия. Несмотря на это, Ирак пытается расширить свои контакты с Западом, в частности с Францией и Италией. В ноябре 1979 года Иран в одностороннем порядке отменил два пункта договора 1921 года, согласно которым СССР оставляет за собой право вмешиваться во внутренние дела Ирана, если третья страна угрожает напасть на него с иранской территории. Москва отказалась принять эту отмену. 20-летний договор о дружбе между СССР и Северным Йеменом был подписан в октябре 1984 года, подробности не известны.
   Болгария и Йеменская Народно-Демократическая Республика (Южный Йемен) подписали Протокол о сотрудничестве в апреле 1980 года и Договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве 14 ноября 1981 года. Аналогичные соглашения с Венгрией были заключены в апреле и ноябре 1981 года. Ливия подписала договоры о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Болгарией и Румынией в январе 1983 года. В ноябре 1982 года Судан и Румыния подписали соглашение о техническом сотрудничестве и подготовке кадров.
   В июле 1952 года Соединенные Штаты заключили с Израилем соглашение о взаимной обороне. Достигнутое в начале 1982 года соглашение о стратегическом сотрудничестве привело в марте 1984 года к заключению ряда соглашений о помощи и поддержке, подробная информация о которых до сих пор не опубликована. Соглашение 1981 года позволяет США использовать египетские базы, но со значительными оговорками Египта. Аналогичное соглашение было достигнуто с Марокко в мае 1982 года. С Оманом было заключено соглашение об оказании экономической и военной помощи в обмен на разрешение использовать Салалу и Масиру в качестве плацдармов. Соглашение с Бахрейном разрешает ВМС США использовать портовые сооружения. В ноябре 1981 года было подписано соглашение о стратегическом сотрудничестве с Тунисом.
   Великобритания заключила договоры о дружбе с Бахрейном, Катаром и Объединенными Арабскими Эмиратами (ОАЭ) в августе 1971 года и соглашение о сотрудничестве в области обороны с Оманом в июне 1985 года. Она поставляла оружие Бахрейну, Египту, Иордании, Кувейту, Оману, Катару, Саудовской Аравии, Судану и ОАЭ. Франция продолжает выполнять соглашения о поставках оружия с Египтом, Ираком, Ливаном, Ливией, Марокко, Суданом и Тунисом. Западная Германия оказывала техническое содействие, обучение в Судане по договору 1982. Испания достигла оборонного соглашения с Марокко, позволяющего ее флоту использовать марокканские порты; выгоды для Марокко не определены.
   В 1964 году Китай подписал договор о дружбе с Северным Йеменом, по которому было предоставлено незначительное количество оружия. Оружие и запасные части были направлены в Египет в соответствии с соглашениями, подписанными в 1978/9 и 1983 годах. В январе 1982 года было подписано соглашение о военном сотрудничестве с Суданом и поставлено оружие. В ноябре 1982 года Северная Корея и Ливия подписали Договор о союзничестве или дружбе и сотрудничестве, который разрешает обмен военными данными, специалистами и поставками.
   Миротворческие силы
   Организация Объединенных Наций отозвала около 4 000 человек Чрезвычайных вооруженных сил ООН (UNEF) с Синайского полуострова 24 июля 1979 года; его обязанности были временно возложены на надзорные организации ООН по перемирию (UNTSO), 298 должностных лиц (группы наблюдателей в Бейруте около 50 наблюдателей), которые следят за прекращение огня на северной границе Израиля с 1949 года. Границу Египет-Израиль теперь патрулируют 2,642 человек многонациональных сил и наблюдателей (MFO) в рамках израильско-египетского мирного договора; контингенты из США (1186), Австралии (которая будет заменена Канадой в 1986 году) (109), Великобритании (37), Колумбии (500), Фиджи (500), Франции (43), Италии (90), Нидерландов (102) и Уругвая (75).
   Организация Объединенных Наций также развернула на Голанских высотах 1323 наблюдателей за разъединением (UNDOF) в составе контингентов из Австрии (533), Канады (226), Финляндии (411) и Польши (153).
   В состав временных сил Организации Объединенных Наций в Ливане (UNIFIL) входят примерно 5822 человека из Франции (1380), Фиджи (626), Финляндии (500), Ганы (709), Ирландии (730), Италии (48), Непала (666), Нидерландов (162), Норвегии (851) и Швеции (150).
   Региональные соглашения
   Алжир, Бахрейн, Джибути, Иордания, Ирак, Йемен, Катар, Кувейт, Ливан, Ливия, Мавритания, Марокко, Оман, Организация освобождения Палестины (ООП), Саудовская Аравия, Сомали, Судан, Сирия, Тунис и Северный и Южный Йемен являются членами Лиги арабских государств (членство Египта было приостановлено в марте 1979 года). К числу его вспомогательных органов относятся арабский Высший совет обороны в составе министров иностранных дел и обороны (создан в 1950 году), постоянный военный комитет Генерального штаба армии (1950 год), который является консультативным органом, и Объединенное арабское командование (1964 год).
   Силы Армии освобождения Сирии и Палестины, входящие в состав арабских сил сдерживания, остаются на севере Ливана. Сирия укрепила свой компонент и сохраняет определенный контроль над элементами Арабской партизанской группы в долине Бекаа и на севере Ливана. Израильские силы при поддержке ливанского христианского ополчения и ополчения самообороны контролируют территорию на юге страны.
   Алжир и Ливия подписали соглашение об обороне в 1975 году. Египет и Судан пришли к совместному соглашению об обороне в 1977 году; его нынешний статус неясен. Протокол Объединенного Совета обороны от декабря 1981 года был равнозначен другому соглашению, а в октябре 1982 года была подписана "Хартия интеграции", охватывающая, в частности, военную политику; статус этого соглашения также неясен. Саудовская Аравия давно поддерживает Марокко в борьбе с повстанцами Полисарио; обе страны подписали пакт безопасности в феврале 1982 года. Соглашение о взаимной обороне между Ливией и Марокко было ратифицировано в сентябре 1984 года; никаких изменений в политике Саудовской Аравии не сообщается. Ливия подписала "стратегическое соглашение" с Ираном в июне 1985 года; никаких подробностей не сообщается. Считается, что соглашение между Саудовской Аравией и Ираком было подписано в 1979 году. Иордания и Ирак ратифицировал соглашение об обороне в марте 1981 года. Совет сотрудничества стран Залива (ССЗ), созданный в мае 1981 года Бахрейном, Кувейтом, Оманом, Катаром, Саудовской Аравией и ОАЭ, разрабатывает структуру взаимной обороны, включающую совместные силы быстрого развертывания, противовоздушную оборону, транспорт и закупки. Она подкрепляется пактами о внутренней безопасности между Саудовской Аравией и Бахрейном, Катаром, Оманом (1982 год) и ОАЭ. В настоящее время рассматривается проект соглашения об обеспечении безопасности в заливе. Ливия, Южный Йемен и Эфиопия сформировали трехсторонний союз по Аденскому договору в 1981 году; он включал в себя совместное оборонное обязательство, но ничего более конкретного не сообщалось. Северный и Южный Йемен договорились о слиянии (1981 год); детали остаются неясными. Иордания, Марокко и Северный Йемен объявили об отъезде неустановленного числа добровольцев для оказания помощи Ираку в борьбе с Ираном, однако ни одно сформированное подразделение не было направлено. Ирак заявил, что были сформированы многонациональные сводные подразделения; их роль неясна. Судан и Эфиопия договорились о режиме безопасности, стабильности и невмешательства во внутренние дела друг друга, в июле 1982 года. Действия, предпринятые после переворота в апреле 1985 года, свидетельствуют о том, что это соглашение выполняется.
   Движение оружия в регионе является особенно сложным. Египет поставляет оружие Марокко, Судану и Ираку. Алжир и Ливия поставляли оружие Полисарио, и большинство арабских стран "отправляли оружие палестинским партизанам". В некоторых случаях третье государство финансирует иностранные закупки оружия. Согласно сообщениям, Иран получает оружие, поставки и запасные части, в частности, от Израиля, Северной Кореи и Восточной Европы, а также закупает материалы на открытом рынке в Западной Европе. Китайское оружие было обнаружено на иранской службе. Ирак, по-видимому, недавно получил оружие из Египта, СССР, Китая, Северной Кореи, Франции, Португалии и Бразилии.
   В 1975 году в Египте под эгидой Саудовской Аравии, Катара, ОАЭ и Судана была создана арабская организация по индустриализации (АОИ) в целях поощрения местного арабского производства оружия. Участие арабских государств прекратилось после сближения Египта с Израилем. Египет заключает соглашения о совместном производстве с Великобританией, Францией, США и Югославией. Чтобы заменить АОИ, Ирак, Кувейт, Катар, Саудовская Аравия и ОАЭ договорились в 1979 году создать в ОАЭ оружейную промышленность на 8 миллиардов долларов. Это предложение все еще изучается ССЗ.
   Военные события
   В войне в Персидском заливе преобладание Ирака в материальной части продолжает противостоять численному превосходству Ирана. Сообщения о применении Ираком отравляющих веществ и использования Ираном ракет поверхность-поверхность добавили новое в конфликт. Ирак также шире использует возможности воздушного нападения на иранские города, доминируя в боях и перехватах танкерных перевозок в северных нефтяных объектах Ирана. Финансовые резервы Ирака исчерпаны, а его международный долг огромен. Учитывая состояние мировых нефтяных рынков, новые трубопроводы, которые он строит, вряд ли принесут ей необходимый доход. Иран, по крайней мере пока, выигрывает экономическую войну, но все еще не может победить на поле боя. Единственная надежда Ирака на выход из тупика, как представляется, заключается в нападении на иранские гражданские и нефтяные объекты в целях ослабления поддержки режима населением. Этот гамбит не был успешным в прошлом, и имеет очевидные политические недостатки.
   Израиль продолжает сохранять свою позицию обычного превосходства над любым из своих соседей, однако появление среди ливанских партизанских групп мифа о том, что ИДФ потерпели поражение и были изгнаны из Ливана, является дурным предзнаменованием для будущего мира. Несмотря на заявления Полисарио, марокканская "Великая стена", как представляется, в значительной степени сократила масштабы вторжений и создала безопасную зону, в которой происходит относительно нормальное экономическое развитие.
   Экономические факторы
   Несмотря на международную экономическую ситуацию, страны Ближнего Востока и Северной Африки в целом смогли достичь темпов роста ВВП около 2,5%. В то же время в нефтедобывающих странах наблюдается непрерывное снижение доходов, поскольку объем производства падает, а цены снижаются. Такие страны, как Саудовская Аравия, испытали резкое сокращение экспорта нефти с 384 млрд риалов ($104 млрд) в 1982 году до 165 млрд риалов ($47 млрд) в 1984 году. Вследствие этого большинству правительств приходится прибегать к дефицитному финансированию и использовать свои международные резервы. Хотя импорт в страны ОАПЕК в целом сократился, эта тенденция нашла отражение в приобретении оружия. Ближний Восток и Северная Африка по-прежнему являются крупнейшими импортерами оружия в мире, главным образом из-за продолжающейся войны в заливе, а также конфликтов в Ливане, Чаде и Западной Сахаре.
   Хотя нефтедобывающие государства располагают значительными финансовыми резервами, многие другие сталкиваются с серьезными долговыми проблемами. По соотношению долг/ВВП Израиль лидирует со 130%, за ним следуют Судан и Марокко со 112%; Египет и Иордания имеют долговое бремя в 65%, в то время как большинство других стран региона находятся в диапазоне 10-25%. Практически во всех странах инфляция управляема, хотя в некоторых арабских странах (Судан, Египет и Иран) она является острой. Инфляция в Израиле приняла латиноамериканские пропорции - достигнув 450% в конце 1984 года, и 750% с середины 1985 года - и ее чрезмерная зависимость от иностранной помощи (особенно от Соединенных Штатов) существенно снизила его экономические показатели. Из-за продолжающейся войны в Персидском заливе Ирак сильно зависит от крупной помощи, субсидий и кредитов (по оценкам, с 1980 года общая сумма составляет около 45 млрд. долл. США). Иран, с другой стороны, сумел сохранить экономический рост, несмотря на войну и при небольшой иностранной помощи.

Sub-Saharan Africa*

   Bilateral External Agreements
   The US has had mutual defence and assistance agreements with Ethiopia (1975), Ghana (1972), Kenya (1980), Liberia (1972), Mali (1972), Niger (1962), Senegal (1962) and Zaire (1972); most may now be in abeyance. Agreements with Somalia and Kenya allow limited US access to naval and air facilities; Somalia has received some military aid.
   The Soviet Union has Treaties of Friendship and Co-operation with Angola (October 1976), Mozambique (March 1977) and Ethiopia (November 1978, ratified April 1979). Relations with the Congo Republic are close but no such agreement is known to exist. Military aid has been given to Angola (under additional Military Co-operation Agreements, including one signed in May 1983), Ethiopia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Somalia, Uganda and Zambia (1980). The Soviet Navy has facilities in the Dahlak Islands, Ethiopia. Reports of a Soviet facility in Sao Tome and Principe have been received.
   China has military assistance agreements with Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Mali and Tanzania, and provided aid to Mozambique and Zaire (under a 1982 sales credit).
   Britain maintains overflying, training and defence agreements with Kenya, helps Zimbabwe form and train her forces, and heads a Commonwealth Training Team (Australia, Britain, Canada, Guyana, Jamaica, Kenya, Sierra Leone and Tanzania) which is helping to rebuild the Ugandan defence forces.
   France has signed defence agreements with Cameroon (February 1974), the Central African Republic (August 1960), the Comoro Islands (October 1978), Djibouti (June 1977, including permission to deploy forces), Gabon (August 1974), Ivory Coast (April 1961), Senegal (March 1974) and Togo (July 1963). Agreements with Chad have led temporarily to French military deployment and continued support. France has signed technical military assistance agreements with 23 countries, including the above.
   Belgium has a military co-operation agreement with Zaire.
   Spain has a military agreement with Equatorial Guinea (1981) and is providing training and some equipment.
   Portugal signed a Protocol on Military Co-operation with Mozambique in April 1982.
   Cuba has some 26,000 men in Angola, training the Angolan armed forces and assisting with internal security, and 5,000 in Ethiopia. Cuban, Soviet and East German advisers are present in a number of other African countries.
   Some military links exist between Israel and both South Africa and Zaire, and between both Mozambique and Angola on the one hand, and East Germany, Bulgaria, Romania (1982) and Yugoslavia (1982) on the other. Hungary signed a Friendship Treaty with Ethiopia and with Mozambique in September 1980. North Korea signed a Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation with Togo in October 1981 and supplied a 100-man training team to Zimbabwe (1981-84) and a 6-man team in 1985; reports persist of Korean teams in Angola and seven other countries (Benin, Congo, Malagasy, Mozambique, Seychelles, Tanzania, Zambia), and a 200-man training team is in Uganda. Ethiopia signed a Treaty of Friendship with Libya and South Yemen in 1981.
   Multilateral Regional Agreements
   The Organization of African Unity (OAU), constituted in May 1963 to include all internationally recognized independent African states except South Africa, has a Defence Commission - responsible for defence and security co-operation and the defence of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of its members. In 1979 this approved in principle an African Intervention Force and ordered planning for its formation, funding and equipping. Little progress has been reported. It did agree in 1981 on an Inter-African Force for Chad, with troops from Nigeria, Senegal and Zaire. OAU financing was inadequate; the Force was withdrawn in June 1982.
   In 1961 the Central African Republic, Chad, the Congo and Gabon formed the Defence Council of Equatorial Africa, with French help. Chad's present position in relation to the Council is unclear.
   In May 1981 the Economic Community of Western African States (ECOWAS) adopted a Protocol on Mutual Assistance on Defence Matters calling for a joint Defence Commission, comprising Defence Ministers and their Chiefs of Defence Staff, and a Defence Council of the Heads of State. It is intended to create a joint force, using assigned units of the national armies, which could serve as an intervention or peace-keeping force. Of the then 16 ECOWAS members (Benin, Cape Verde, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo and Upper Volta), 12 have signed; Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and Mali declined, and Mauritania signed only after the Protocol was amended to call for the withdrawal of foreign troops once ECOWAS could guarantee mutual defence.
   Bilateral Regional Arrangements
   Kenya signed a defence agreement with Ethiopia in November 1963 and a Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation in January 1979; Kenya and Somalia agreed in 1981 to control border incursions. Sierra Leone and Guinea signed a Defence Agreement in 1971 and a Mutual Defence Pact in August 1981. In December 1981 Senegal and The Gambia signed a confederation pact which united the two countries as Senegambia. Although they stated their intent to integrate their armed forces, the Protocols still have not been signed. Djibouti signed a Friendship Treaty with Ethiopia and with the Somali Republic in early 1981. Nigeria and Benin signed a military co-operation agreement in January 1983 providing for joint exercises and unspecified 'other things'. Mozambique trains Tanzanian and Zimbabwe troops; the agreement providing this facility is unknown. Tanzania provides instructors for Uganda under a defence pact signed in August 1981. Zaire trains Chadian forces. In March 1984 South Africa signed one agreement with Mozambique mutually to curb insurgency and another with Angola providing for disengagement by South African forces and mutual supervision of guerrilla activity. Angola and Zaire agreed a Treaty of Security and Defence in February 1985; each guarantees not to her its territory be used as a base for attacks on the other.
   The only country in the area with an indigenous arms industry is South Africa, which builds equipment both under licence and of her own design.
   Military Developments
   South Africa remains the only African country capable of significant force projection operations against her neighbors. With the possible exception of Angola, none of her neighbors, singly or in concert, is capable of formal conventional operations against her. Angola, with Soviet-supplied equipment and with detachments of Cubans and other Soviet-oriented nations, is stretched to her limits containing the forces of UNITA and could not also defend against a major South African offensive. African national forces remain capable only of limited, short-term internal security operations. Ethiopian operations against the rebel elements gain more from the general drought-induced hardship than from military action.
   Economic Factors
   In common with the western hemisphere, Sub-Saharan Africa has experienced a general decline of GDP growth since 1981. In the previous two years its total GDP had showed a 4% growth rate, but during the following three years it declined to -0.2% (1983). There was an improvement in 1984, however, total GDP growing by 2.3%, and 3% growth is projected for 1985. With only a few exceptions, per capita living standards declined throughout the continent. High birth rates erode the moderate economic gains - often exceeding GDP growth (e.g., Kenya) - while the international economic climate has diminished the export capacity of Sub-Saharan countries, and the drought has seriously affected the agricultural sector (according to the World Bank, some countries have lost up to 80% of their crops).
Inflation is also a problem, but it has not reached the proportions seen in Latin America.
   Only in two countries (Ghana and Zaire) is the rate over 100%, while in most others it ranges between 10% and 20%. External debt, however, has reached almost the same proportions as in Latin America; debt/GDP ratios for at least three countries have topped 100% (Ivory Coast 160%, Zaire 155%, Sudan 115%). In absolute terms South Africa and Nigeria lead the continent, with debt burdens of $33 bn and $23 bn respectively.

   Двусторонние Внешние Соглашения
   У США были соглашения о взаимной обороне и помощи с Эфиопией (1975), Ганой (1972), Кенией (1980), Либерией (1972), Мали (1972), Нигером (1962), Сенегалом (1962) и Заиром (1972); большинство из них может теперь быть в состоянии неопределенности. Соглашения с Сомали и Кенией позволяют ограничить доступ США к военно-морским и воздушным объектам; Сомали получила некоторую военную помощь.
   Советский Союз имеет договоры о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Анголой (октябрь 1976 года), Мозамбиком (март 1977 года) и Эфиопией (ноябрь 1978 года, ратифицирован в апреле 1979 года). Отношения с Республикой Конго тесные, но известно, что такого соглашения не существует. Военная помощь была оказана Анголе (в соответствии с дополнительными соглашениями о военном сотрудничестве, в том числе подписанным в мае 1983 года), Эфиопии, Гвинее, Гвинее-Бисау, Мали, Мозамбику, Нигерии, Сомали, Уганде и Замбии (1980 год). Советский флот имеет объекты на островах Далак, Эфиопия. Получены сообщения о Советском объекте в Сан-Томе и Принсипи.
   Китай заключил соглашения о военной помощи с Камеруном, Экваториальной Гвинеей, Гвинеей, Мали и Танзанией и оказал помощь Мозамбику и Заиру (в рамках кредита на продажу 1982 года).
   Великобритания поддерживает соглашения с Кенией о пролете, подготовке и обороне, помогает Зимбабве формировать и обучать свои силы и возглавляет группу подготовки Содружества (Австралия, Великобритания, Гайана, Канада, Ямайка, Кения, Сьерра-Леоне и Танзания), которая помогает восстановить угандийские силы обороны.
   Франция подписала оборонные соглашения с Камеруном (февраль 1974), Центрально-Африканской Республикой (август 1960), Коморскими островами (октябрь 1978), Джибути (июнь 1977 года, в том числе разрешение на развертывание сил), Габоном (август 1974), Кот д'Ивуаром (апрель 1961), Сенегалом (март 1974 года) и Того (июль 1963). Соглашения с Чадом привели к временному развертыванию французских вооруженных сил и дальнейшей поддержке. Франция подписала соглашения о технической военной помощи с 23 странами, включая вышеупомянутые.
   Бельгия заключила с Заиром соглашение о военном сотрудничестве.
   Испания заключила военное соглашение с Экваториальной Гвинеей (1981 год) и обеспечивает подготовку кадров и некоторое оборудование.
   Португалия подписали Протокол о военном сотрудничестве с Мозамбиком в апреле 1982 года.
   Куба имеет около 26 000 человек в Анголе, для обучения ангольских вооруженных сил и оказания помощи внутренней безопасности, и 5000 в Эфиопии. Кубинские, советские и восточногерманские советники присутствуют в ряде других африканских стран.
   Некоторые военные связи существуют между Израилем и Южной Африкой и Заиром, а также между Мозамбиком и Анголой, с одной стороны, и Восточной Германией, Болгарией, Румынией (1982 год) и Югославией (1982 год) - с другой. Венгрия подписала договор о дружбе с Эфиопией и Мозамбиком в сентябре 1980 года. Северная Корея подписала договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Того в октябре 1981 года и предоставила Зимбабве (1981-1984 годы) учебную группу в составе 100 человек и группу в составе 6 человек в 1985 году; сообщается о корейских частях в Анголе и семи других странах (Бенин, Конго, Мадагаскар, Мозамбик, Сейшельские острова, Танзания, Замбия), и 200 человек для обучения в Уганде. Эфиопия заключила договор о дружбе с Ливией и Южным Йеменом в 1981 году.
   Многосторонние Региональные Соглашения
   Организация африканского единства (ОАЕ), учрежденная в мае 1963 года и включающая в себя все международно признанные независимые африканские государства, за исключением Южной Африки, имеет комиссию по обороне , отвечающую за сотрудничество в области обороны и безопасности и защиту суверенитета, территориальной целостности и независимости ее членов. В 1979 году он утвердил в принципе африканские силы вмешательства и распорядился о планировании их формирования, финансирования и оснащения. Сообщается о незначительном прогрессе. В 1981 году она договорилась о создании Межафриканских сил для Чада с войсками Нигерии, Сенегала и Заира. Финансирование ОАЕ было недостаточным; силы были выведены в июне 1982 года.
   В 1961 году Габон, Конго, Центральноафриканская Республика и Чад сформировали при содействии Франции Совет обороны Экваториальной Африки. Нынешняя позиция Чада в отношении Совета неясна.
   В мае 1981 года экономическое сообщество западноафриканских государств (ECOWAS) приняло протокол о взаимной помощи по вопросам обороны, предусматривающий создание совместной комиссии по вопросам обороны в составе министров обороны и начальников их штабов и Совета обороны глав государств. Предполагается создать совместные силы с использованием закрепленных за ними подразделений национальных армий, которые могли бы служить в качестве сил вмешательства или поддержания мира. Тогда из 16 участников ECOWAS (Бенин, Кабо-Верде, Гамбия, Гана, Гвинея, Гвинея-Бисау, Кот-д'Ивуар, Либерия, Мали, Мавритания, Нигер, Нигерия, Сенегал, Сьерра-Леоне, Того и Верхняя Вольта), 12 подписали; Кабо-Верде, Гвинеи-Бисау и Мали отказались, и Мавритания подписали только после того, как протокол был изменен призывает к выводу иностранных войск после ECOWAS может гарантировать взаимной обороне.
   Двусторонние Региональные Соглашения
   Кения подписала соглашение об обороне с Эфиопией в ноябре 1963 года и Договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве в январе 1979 года; Кения и Сомали договорились в 1981 году о контроле за вторжениями на границе. Сьерра-Леоне и Гвинея подписали соглашение об обороне в 1971 году и пакт о взаимной обороне в августе 1981 года. В декабре 1981 года Сенегал и Гамбия подписали пакт Конфедерации, который объединил обе страны в Сенегамбию. Хотя они заявили о своем намерении объединить свои вооруженные силы, протоколы до сих пор не подписаны. В начале 1981 года Джибути подписала договор о дружбе с Эфиопией и с Сомалийской Республикой. В январе 1983 года Нигерия и Бенин подписали соглашение о военном сотрудничестве, предусматривающее проведение совместных учений и неуказанных "других мероприятий". Мозамбик готовит войска Танзании и Зимбабве; соглашение о предоставлении этого объекта неизвестно. Танзания предоставляет Уганде инструкторов в соответствии с пактом об обороне, подписанным в августе 1981 года. Заир тренирует силы Чада. В марте 1984 года ЮАР подписала соглашение с Мозамбиком взаимно обуздать мятежников и еще с Анголой, предусматривающий разъединение южно-африканских сил и взаимного контроля партизанской деятельности. В феврале 1985 года Ангола и Заир заключили договор о безопасности и обороне; каждая из них гарантирует, что ее территория не будет использоваться в качестве базы для нападений на другую.
   Единственной страной в этом районе, где имеется местная оружейная промышленность, является Южная Африка, которая производит вооружение как по лицензии, так и по собственной конструкции.
   Военные события
   ЮАР остается единственной африканской страной, способной проводить значительные операции против своих соседей. За возможным исключением Анголы, ни один из ее соседей поодиночке или сообща не способен проводить против нее официальные обычные операции. Ангола, снабженная советским вооружением и отрядами кубинцев и других стран, ориентированных на Советский Союз, напряжена до предела, имея против себя силы УНИТА, и не может также защищаться от крупного южноафриканского наступления. Африканские национальные силы по-прежнему способны проводить лишь ограниченные краткосрочные операции по обеспечению внутренней безопасности. Операции Эфиопии против повстанческих элементов выигрывают больше от общих трудностей, вызванных засухой, чем от военных действий.
   Экономические факторы
   Как и в Западном полушарии, в странах Африки к югу от Сахары с 1981 года наблюдается общее снижение темпов роста ВВП. В предыдущие два года ее совокупный ВВП рос на 4%, однако в последующие три года он снизился до -0,2% (1983 год). В 1984 году наблюдалось улучшение, однако общий рост ВВП составил 2,3%, а в 1985 году прогнозируется рост на 3%. За редким исключением, уровень жизни на душу населения на всем континенте снизился. Высокие показатели рождаемости подрывают умеренные экономические выгоды , зачастую превышающие темпы роста ВВП (например, Кения), в то время как международный экономический климат привел к снижению экспортного потенциала стран к югу от Сахары, а засуха серьезно сказалась на сельскохозяйственном секторе (по данным Всемирного банка, некоторые страны потеряли до 80% своих сельскохозяйственных культур).
   Инфляция также является проблемой, но она не достигла тех масштабов, которые наблюдаются в Латинской Америке.
   Только в двух странах (Гана и Заир) этот показатель превышает 100%, в то время как в большинстве других он колеблется между 10% и 20%. Внешний долг, однако, достиг почти тех же пропорций, что и в Латинской Америке; соотношение долга к ВВП по крайней мере для трех стран превысило 100% (Кот-Д'Ивуар 160%, Заир 155%, Судан 115%). В абсолютном выражении Южная Африка и Нигерия возглавляют континент с долговым бременем в $33 млрд и $23 млрд соответственно.

The exact nature and extent of the amalgamation is still unclear; the Gambian Army apparently functions as a Gendarmerie with civilian-manned marine and air elements.

CHINA

   Chinese defence policy has long maintained a balance, at times uneasy, between two concepts: nuclear force to deter strategic attack and People's War- mass mobilization of the population to deter or repel conventional invasion. Despite changes in the political leadership, there remain many supporters of the strategic concept that mass manpower is still the primary deterrent. The need to modernize the forces has been recognized. Attempts are being made to retire older officers, and programmes to re-equip and reorganize the forces are slowly being implemented.
   The conventional arms inventory of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), technically much less advanced than that of wealthier nations, is being gradually updated by replacing Soviet and Soviet-type equipment with indigenous designs and some Western technology. China has obtained computers and radars and is negotiating the purchase from various countries of a wide range of military equipment. Britain has sold aircraft engines, artillery and fire control equipment and radar. France has sold helicopters and radar. The United States has agreed to sell helicopters. Despite the period of economic readjustment which led to a succession of cuts in the defence budget since 1980, this year's budget shows a small increase (which will certainly be swallowed by inflation). Thus the pace of modernization will continue to be quite slow, although much is being done to make the forces more professional and efficient - through reorganization, better training and scrapping of civil production quotas. The PLA is also benefiting from the general modernization of Chinese industry.
   Nuclear Weapons
   The research programme continues. Two nuclear tests were recorded in 1984, and the total number of tests since 1964 is now 29.
   Two types of ICBM are deployed, one (DF-5) with a range of some 13,000 km, the other some 7,000 km. No indication has been received of the deployment of multiple warheads, but a missile has been successfully used (and thus tested) as a launcher for three space research satellites. Estimates of the ranges of the IRBM and MRBM have been revised Lurssenward to 2,700 km and 1,100 km respectively. China's first SSBN is the Xia class with 12 CSS-NX-4 SLBM - a variant of the DF-3 IRBM- the range of which is reproted to be of the order of 2,200-3,000 km (probably the lower figure). Four more SSBM are said to be under construction, some - perhaps the Daqingyu class - being reported to have 16 launch tubes. Some 3 Han-class nuclear-powered submarines with six missile tubes are now in service; the cruise missile they are said to carry, has been tested to a reported range of 1,600 km. So far all ballistic missiles have been liquid-fuelled. Solid propellants, being developed, are reported to have powered the 1980 ICBM test vehicle and may power the DF-5 ICBM. The Strategic Rocket Units are manned by the Second Artillery, which is directly controlled by the Ministry of Defence. There are unconfirmed reports of tactical nuclear munitions (artillery, rockets, mines). If such munitions are available, fighter aircraft could be used for tactical delivery, and for longer ranges some of the 120 H-6 medium bombers, with a combat radius of up to 3,000 km, may be nuclear capable.
   Conventional Forces
   The PLA embraces all arms and services, including naval and air elements. Essentially a defensive force, the PLA continues to lack facilities and logistic support for protracted large scale operations at any significant distance outside Chinese borders. China has been organized in 11 Military Regions (MR) with 28 Military Districts (MD). These will be reduced to 7 by combining Lanzhou and Urumqi (West and North-West areas), Chengdu and Kunming (South and South-West), Wuhan and Jinan, and Nanjing and Fuzhou (Centre and East). Some internal reorganization will also occur. The field army's Main Force (MF) divisions are commanded by the Ministry of National Defence, although command is being transferred to the MR in which they are stationed and which are already responsible for their administration. They are available for operations in any region. Extensive reorganization of the Local Forces (LF), Border and Internal Defence forces and para-military units intended to defend their own Provinces continues to take place. An overall strength reduction is planned. The field army strength is already declining as transfers to the regional forces continue. Artillery, engineer and railway units are controlled by the Ministry of National Defence. Infantry units account for most of the ground-force manpower and 118 of the some 138 MF line divisions; there are only 13 armoured divisions.
   The naval and air elements of the PLA have only about one-fifth of the total manpower, compared with about a quarter for their counterparts in the Soviet Union, but naval strength is increasing. The naval force is organized in three fleets, two of them controlled by the Northern Naval Region. The naval air arm is shore-based, and there is an independent Coast Defence Force. The naval component remains essentially a coastal defence force, incapable of long range force projection. The air component is organized into 8 Regions and 3 minor geographic commands; combat organization is similar to the Soviet system, with air armies of divisions of three regiments each with some 45 aircraft. It, too, remains essentially a force with limited defence capabilities.
   Major weapons systems include Type-59 MBT, Type-60/-63 amphibious and Type-62 light tanks and Type-531 APC; modified R- and W-class medium-range diesel submarines, SSM destroyers, frigates, fast patrol boats, amphibious transports and landing craft; J-6/-7 and Q-5 fighters, SA-2-type SAM. Production rates for this equipment are, at best, broad estimates only. Actual rates may be considerably lower than many such estimates suggest.
   Bilateral Agreements
   There is a mutual defence agreement with North Korea, dating from 1961, and an agreement to provide free military aid. There are friendship and non-aggression pacts with Afghanistan, Burma, Nepal (1960) and Kampuchea (Khmer Rouge). Chinese military equipment and logistic support have been offered to a number of countries. Major recipients include Albania, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan and Tanzania.
   Gross National Product and Defence Expenditure
   Official Chinese sources claim a GNP figure of 989.4 bn yuan for 1982 and 1,105.2 bn for 1983, an increase of 11.7%. National income is reported by the IMF to be 467.3 bn yuan for 1983 and an estimated 523.4 bn for 1984. (GNP figures include the service and other sectors.) Western estimates of GNP have varied greatly, from $309 bn to $362 bn yuan (and even to over 600 bn yuan) for 1984, and it is difficult to choose from a range of figures, variously defined and calculated.
   Since 1981 the Chinese government has released official defence budget figures. In 1984 the defence budget amounted to 17.870 bn yuan (but actual expenditures were subsequently reported as 18.073 bn yuan), while the budget for 1985 amounts to 18.670 bn yuan. Using the official current exchange rate for 1984, the defence outlays would amount to $7,790 bn, which according to western accounting principals is unrealistic. China, like all socialist economies, excludes a number of items, notably pay and allowances for the troops, as well as RD&E costs. Moreover, the Chinese defence forces are undergoing considerable technological modernization, especially in hardware, much of which is being obtained from western countries at high costs. As Chinese budgetary practices are not known in detail, the official budget figures must be considered as an indicator of proportion, rather than a measurement of actual costs.

Несмотря на изменения в политическом руководстве, остается много сторонников стратегической концепции того, что массовая живая сила по-прежнему является основным сдерживающим фактором. Была признана необходимость модернизации сил. Предпринимаются попытки отправить в отставку старших офицеров, и медленно осуществляются программы перевооружения и реорганизации сил.
   Обычные вооружения Народно-освободительной армии (НОАК), технически гораздо менее совершенные, чем у более богатых стран, постепенно обновляются путем замены советского вооружения местными конструкциями и некоторыми западными технологиями. Китай приобрел компьютеры и радары и ведет переговоры о закупке у различных стран широкого спектра военной техники. Великобритания продала авиационные двигатели, артиллерийское и противопожарное оборудование и радары. Франция продала вертолеты и радары. США согласилась продать вертолеты. Несмотря на период экономической перестройки, которая привела к последовательному сокращению оборонного бюджета с 1980 года, бюджет этого года показывает небольшой рост (который, безусловно, будет поглощен инфляцией). Таким образом, темпы модернизации будут оставаться довольно медленными, хотя многое делается для того, чтобы сделать силы более профессиональными и эффективными - за счет реорганизации, лучшей подготовки кадров и отмены квот на гражданское производство. НОАК также выигрывает от общей модернизации китайской промышленности.
   Ядерное оружие
   Исследовательская программа продолжается. В 1984 году было зарегистрировано два ядерных испытания, а общее число испытаний с 1964 года составляет 29.
   Развернуты два типа МБР: один (DF-5) с дальностью действия около 13 000 км, другой - около 7 000 км. Никаких указаний на развертывание нескольких боеголовок получено не было, однако ракета была успешно использована (и, таким образом, испытана) в качестве носителя для трех спутников космических исследований. Оценки дальности БРСД и БРСД были пересмотрены в сторону понижения до 2700 км и 1100 км соответственно. Первая китайская ПЛАРБ класса Xia с 12 БРПЛ CSS-NX-4 - вариант БРСД DF-3 дальность которой составляет порядка 2,200-3,000 км (вероятно, нижняя цифра). Еще четыре ПЛАРБ, как говорят, находятся в стадии строительства, некоторые - возможно, класса Daqingyu - сообщается, имеют 16 пусковых труб. В настоящее время на вооружении находятся около 3 атомных подводных лодок типа Han с шестью ракетными установками; крылатая ракета, которую, как утверждается, они несут, была испытана на дальности 1600 км. До сих пор все баллистические ракеты были жидкостными. Сообщается, что разрабатываемые твердотопливные реактивные двигатели испытаны на МБР в 1980 года и могут быть на МБР DF-5. Ракетные подразделения Стратегического Назначения названы Второй артиллерией, которая находится под непосредственным контролем Министерства обороны. Имеются неподтвержденные сообщения о тактических ядерных боеприпасах (артиллерия, ракеты, мины). При наличии таких боеприпасов истребители могли бы использоваться для тактической доставки, а на более дальних дистанциях некоторые из 120 средних бомбардировщиков Н-6 с боевым радиусом до 3000 км могут быть ядерными.
   Обычные вооруженные силы
   НОАК включает все виды, включая военно-морские и воздушные элементы. По существу, являясь оборонительными силами, НОАК по-прежнему испытывает нехватку средств и материально-технической поддержки для длительных крупномасштабных операций на любом значительном расстоянии за пределами китайских границ. Китай разделен на 11 военных регионов (MR) с 28 военными округами (MD). Они будут сокращены до 7 путем объединения Ланьчжоу и Урумчжи (Западный и Северо-Западный районы), Чэнду и Куньмин (Юго-Запад), Ухань, Цзинань, Нанкин, Фучжоу и и (центр и Восток). Произойдет также некоторая внутренняя реорганизация. Дивизии основных сил полевой армии (MF) находятся под командованием Министерства национальной обороны, хотя командование переходит к MR, в котором они дислоцируются и которые уже отвечают за их управление. Они доступны для действий в любом регионе. Продолжается широкомасштабная реорганизация местных сил (LF), пограничных и внутренних сил обороны и воинских подразделений, призванных защищать свои провинции. Планируется общее сокращение численности. Полевые силы армии уже сокращаются и перевод их в региональные силы продолжается. Артиллерийские, инженерные и железнодорожные подразделения контролируются Министерством национальной обороны. Пехотные подразделения составляют большую часть личного состава сухопутных войск и на 118 из примерно 138 линейных дивизий MF; имеется лишь 13 бронетанковых дивизий.
   Военно-морские и военно-воздушные элементы НОАК имеют лишь около одной пятой общей численности личного состава по сравнению с примерно четвертью их коллег в Советском Союзе, однако численность военно-морских сил увеличивается. Военно-морские силы организованы в три флота, два из которых контролируются Северным Военно-морским регионом. Военно-воздушные силы флота базируются на берегу, и существуют независимые силы береговой обороны. Военно-морской компонент остается по существу силами береговой обороны, неспособными к дальним действиям. Воздушный компонент состоит из 8 региональных и 3 второстепенных географических командований; боевая организация похожа на советскую систему, с воздушными армиями из дивизий по три полка каждой с около 45 самолетов в полку. Они также остаются по существу силами с ограниченными возможностями обороны.
   Основные системы вооружения включают Тип-59 ОБТ, Тип-60/-63 амфибии, Тип-62 легкие танки и тип-531 БТР; модифицированные R - и W-класса средние дизельные подводные лодки, ракетные эсминцы, фрегаты, быстроходные патрульные катера, десантные транспорты и десантные суда; J-6/-7 и Q-5 истребители и SA-2-типа ЗРК. Темпы производства этого оборудования в лучшем случае являются лишь общими оценками. Фактические могут быть значительно ниже, чем предполагают многие такие оценки.
   Двусторонние соглашения
   Есть договор о взаимной обороне с Северной Кореей, начиная с 1961 года и соглашение о предоставлении бесплатной военной помощи. Существуют договоры о дружбе и ненападении с Афганистаном, Бирмой, Непалом (1960 год) и Кампучией ("Красные Кхмеры"). Ряду стран была предложена китайская военная техника и материально-техническая поддержка. Основными получателями помощи являются Албания, Египет, Ирак, Пакистан и Танзания.
   Валовой национальный продукт и расходы на оборону
   Официальные китайские источники утверждают, что показатель ВНП составляет 989,4 млрд юаней за 1982 год и 1,105.2 млрд за 1983 год, рост на 11,7%. По данным МВФ, национальный доход составил 467,3 млрд. юаней в 1983 году и 523,4 млрд. юаней в 1984 году. (ВНП включает обслуживание и другие отрасли.) Западные оценки ВНП сильно варьировались, от $309 млрд до $362 млрд юаней (и даже более 600 млрд юаней) за 1984 год, и трудно выбрать из ряда цифр, по-разному определенных и рассчитанных.
   С 1981 года китайское правительство публикует официальные цифры оборонного бюджета. В 1984 году оборонный бюджет составлял 17,870 млрд. юаней (однако фактические расходы впоследствии были зарегистрированы как 18,073 млрд. юаней), а бюджет 1985 года - 18,670 млрд. юаней. При использовании официального текущего обменного курса на 1984 год расходы на оборону составят 7 790 млрд. долл. США, что, по мнению западных бухгалтерских директоров, нереально. Китай, как и все социалистические страны, исключает ряд статей, в частности, выплаты и надбавки военнослужащим, а также расходы на НИОКР. Кроме того, китайские силы обороны проходят значительную технологическую модернизацию, особенно в области техники, большая часть которой поступает из западных стран с большими затратами. Поскольку китайская бюджетная практика не известна в деталях, официальные бюджетные показатели должны рассматриваться как показатель пропорциональности, а не как показатель фактических расходов.

OTHER ASIAN COUNTRIES AND AUSTRALASIA

   Bilateral Agreements
   The United States has mutual co-operation and security treaties with Japan (1951, I960), the Republic of Korea (1954) and the Philippines (1951, 1983); military co-operation agreements with Australia (1951, 1963, 1974 and 1980); and a military aid agreement with Thailand. Arms supply and production arrangements with Taiwan subsist under the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act. The US also provides continuing military aid to Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines and Thailand. There are major US bases in Japan, South Korea and the Philippines (agreement renewed 1983), and air (B-52) and naval refuelling facilities in north and west Australia respectively.
   In 1965 Britain separated the Chagos Archipelago (which included Diego Garcia) from Mauritius, paying $3 million compensation, and, together with three smaller groups, established it as the British Indian Ocean Territory. A small British naval contingent was deployed on Diego Garcia. Agreements in 1966, 1972 and 1976 have provided for the development of a major US naval and air support facility with an indefinite tenure. The three small groups have since been turned over to the Seychelles.
   Britain has a Defence Agreement with Sri Lanka (1974) and one with Brunei which provides the latter with Gurkha troops and the British forces with a training area.
   The Soviet Union has Treaties of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance with Afghanistan (1978), India (1971), Mongolia (1966), North Korea (1961) and Vietnam (1978). She concluded a Stationing of Forсes Agreement with Afghanistan in April 1980. An agreement with India in December 1982 provides for collaboration on design and manufacture of naval vessels; other and subsequent co-production arrangements exist. Bulgaria has Friendship Treaties with Cambodia (1960), Laos (1979), Mongolia (1967) and Vietnam (1979), as have Czechoslovakia with Laos and Vietnam (1980) and Afghanistan (1981), Hungary with Afghanistan (1982), and East Germany with Vietnam (1977), Kampuchea (1980) and Afghanistan (1982).
   The People's Republic of China has Friendship and Non-Aggression Treaties with Afghanistan, Burma and Nepal (all 1960), and a Treaty of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance with North Korea (1961).
   Cuba and Vietnam signed a Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation on 5 October 1982. Libya and North Korea signed a Treaty of Alliance or Friendship and Co-operation in November 1982, which permits exchanges of military data, specialists and supplies. North Korea and Tanzania have an agreement covering aspects of defence and security.
   Australia has an agreement and subsidiary arrangements for the development of and assistance to the Papua New Guinea Defence Force, and has loaned it some 135 personnel. Under a number of arrangements she has supplied defence equipment to the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and most of the smaller Pacific island states.
   In July 1977 Vietnam and Laos signed a series of agreements which contained military provisions and a border pact, and which may have covered the stationing of Vietnamese troops in Laos. A similar series of agreements seems to have been negotiated between Vietnam and the Heng Samrin regime in Kampuchea in February 1979 and December 1982.

   In 1951 Australia, New Zealand and the United States signed a tripartite treaty (ANZUS), which came into effect on 29 April 1952 and is of indefinite duration. Each agrees to 'act to meet the common danger' in the event of attacks on either metropolitan or island territory of any one of them, or on their armed forces, public vessels or aircraft in the Pacific. In early 1985 protests by New Zealand over visits of US warships with nuclear weapons were interpreted by the US as being contrary to the spirit of ANZUS. Thus the nature of the treaty is in doubt. US-New Zealand links are in abeyance, although those between Australia and New Zealand continue. US-Australian links remain close.
   The Manila Pact, signed on 8 September 1954 by Australia, Britain, France, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand and the United States, remains in force, though France and Pakistan subsequently withdrew, and the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO), set up to implement it, was disbanded in 1977. The Pact calls for action by each Party to meet the common danger posed by armed aggression, and for consultation if any other threat is posed to the territory, sovereignty or political independence of any Party. Since 1962 the US commitment to Thailand has been based on this Pact.
   The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), set up in 1967 by Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand and joined by Brunei in 1984, is intended to foster regional economic development, not military co-operation. Under the rubric of the promotion of regional peace and security it is concerned with the Vietnamese presence in Kampuchea. It supports the Kampuchean resistance movements politically, but reported arms transfers to the rebels are believed to result from national, rather than multilateral, initiatives.
   Five-Power Defence Arrangements (Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Britain), relating to the defence of Malaysia and Singapore, came into effect on 1 November 1971. In the event of any externally organized or supported armed attack or threat of attack against Malaysia or Singapore, the five governments would consult together for the purpose of deciding what measures should be taken, jointly or separately. Britain withdrew her forces in March 1976, but New Zealand troops remain in Singapore, as do Australian air units in Malaysia arid Singapore, with a small army component attached. Australian and New Zealand naval units visit Malaysia and Singapore regularly.
   Economic Factors
   After showing exceptionally low growth rates in 1982, the Asian economies recovered well in 1983 and continued this momentum throughout 1984 and early 1985. Regional average growth in real GNP/GDP amounted to just under 5%, compared with just above 4% in the previous year (1-2% in 3982). Taiwan led the region with a growth rate of almost 11%, followed by Singapore (8.2%), Korea (7.6%) and Malaysia (7.3%). Most of the others hovered around 5%, but the Philippines declined by a massive 5.5%. Almost all states were able to contain their inflation rates, with the exception of the Philippines which doubled hers to nearly 51%. The Philippines also led in gross external debt, with some $26 bn, or 80% of GDP, followed by New Zealand (64%), Malaysia (57%) and Korea and Sri Lanka (both 56%). Of the two principal Communist economies, North Korea continued to achieve a satisfactory performance (GDP growth estimated at some 4%), while Vietnam has had to face continuous serious economic decline, forcing her into greater economic dependency on the Soviet Union.
   The ASEAN countries, while not a military alliance, appear to be moving towards an ever closer relationship. Not only do they share common objectives but economic necessity will force them into sharing economic resources. Moreover, the United States is exerting increasing pressure on them to increase their collective defence commitment, although she is mitigating that pressure by increasing her military aid and credits to Thailand.
   Military Developments
   The Afghan Resistance continues to mount hit-and-run attacks throughout the country with some success, though it still lacks the modern, sophisticated missile weapons needed to counter Soviet armour and aircraft. The Government armed forces, weakened by purges and desertion, have not yet been rebuilt, though they do add weight to Soviet operations. The Soviet command has done much to eliminate civilian support for the rebels in the countryside by systematically destroying the towns and crops, and it has developed effective close air support and mobile tactics to defend vulnerable points. Its present strength appears adequate to enable it to control the areas which it currently dominates without serious reinforcement. The military, economic and political costs of the war are not considered to be onerous enough to force an early withdrawal.
   Pakistan - squeezed by the potential threat of attack from Afghanistan for supporting and housing the rebels, by greatly superior Indian strength, and by financial contraints - is slowly modernizing her air force. India continues to enhance her quantitative and qualitative superiority over any possible combination of opponents. While the variety of sources of her new equipment may complicate the supply of spares, self-sufficiency is increasing.
   The Burmese Government's border area campaigns against the many private armies continue, but at a relatively unsophisticated level. Greater success against these groups would seem to demand more manpower and materiel. No major arms purchases have been noted.
   Malaysia's military procurement programme seems to have slowed. Her forces will require time to absorb the items now delivered, and economic considerations should curtail future purchases. Her armed forces strength has dropped by about 12%, but the Reserve structure has been rationalized. Singapore, similarly, is receiving outstanding orders only, with no new significant purchases reported. Indonesia, the second-largest regional power, is producing aircraft and helicopters under licence; her forces remain largely capable only of internal security operations. The Indonesian armed forces are being reorganized to improve the efficiency of the chain of commond. KOSTRAD will form the core of the Army's field organization. Non-KOSTRAD forces, assigned to the Military province Commands (KOREM) will provide a quick-reaction internal security force. This reorganization is to be complete by April 1986; some of our entries, which assume the situation as of 1 July 1985, may be a little premature.
   Vietnam's dry-weather success over the Kampuchean rebels seems largely to have broken their capability for conventional operations, forcing them back to guerilla tactics; though troublesome these can more readily be contained, and Vietnam shows no sign of a major withdrawal. Cambodia's own forces are still not able to mount more than local security operations, and Vietnam's continued presence in Cambodia has forced Thailand to seek significant supplies from the US.
   Taiwan's forces appear sufficiently strong to dissuade any major assault against her main island, but she is still some way from self-suffiency. The armed forces of the Philippines are deeply committed to containing the widespread and growing internal security threat and have little reserve capacity.
   The Japanese Government is attempting to develop its Self-Defence Forces in order to play a greater role in regional defence, but this concept is still politically controversial. Earlier procurement plans have suffered from delays, often because of under-funding. Pressure to remain below the ' 1 % of GNP ceiling' on defence expenditure will continue. On the other hand, US pressure on the Japanese government to increase its defence expenditure appears to be increasing.
   The opposing forces in the Korean Peninsula are roughly equivalent. Neither is capable of a successful major offensive against the other without significant foreign assistance. North Korea has been undergoing a major reorganization, presumably to make better use of her relatively new range of armoured, mechanized and self-propelled artillery equipment. Some of the infantry divisions have been mechanized. A shift in responsibilities from Regular to Reserve units in the rear areas appears to be under way. There has been a reported increase in personnel strength of some 55,000, or perhaps 7% overall.
   Sri Lanka's forces have been engaged in a massive Internal Security campaign to contain and isolate Tamil separatists. This has been costly, in both lives and materiel, representing a potentially heavy economic burden.
  

ДРУГИЕ АЗИАТСКИЕ СТРАНЫ И АВСТРАЛИЯ

   Двусторонние соглашения
   Соединенные Штаты имеют договоры о взаимном сотрудничестве и безопасности с Японией (1951, I960), Республикой Корея (1954) и Филиппинами (1951, 1983); соглашения о военном сотрудничестве с Австралией (1951, 1963, 1974 и 1980); и соглашение о военной помощи с Таиландом. Соглашения о поставках и производстве оружия с Тайванем действуют в соответствии с Законом о тайваньских отношениях 1979 года. США также оказывают постоянную военную помощь Индонезии, Южной Корее, Малайзии, Пакистану, Филиппинам и Таиланду. Основные американские базы находятся в Японии, Южной Корее и на Филиппинах (соглашение продлено в 1983 году), а воздушные (B-52) и военно-морские заправочные комплексы - в Северной и Западной Австралии соответственно.
   В 1965 году Британия отделила архипелаг Чагос (в который входил Диего-Гарсия) от Маврикия, выплатив компенсацию в размере 3 млн. долл. США, и вместе с тремя меньшими группами островов сделала его британской территорией в Индийском океане. Небольшой британский военно-морской контингент был развернут на Диего-Гарсии. Соглашения 1966, 1972 и 1976 годов предусматривали создание крупного объекта военно-морской и воздушной поддержки США с бессрочным сроком действия. Три маленькие группы на Сейшелах.
   У Великобритании есть соглашение об обороне со Шри-Ланкой (1974 год) и соглашение с Брунеем, которое предоставляет последним гуркхские войска и британские силы с учебным районом.
   СССР заключила договоры о дружбе, сотрудничестве и взаимной помощи с Афганистаном (1978), Индией (1971), Монголией (1966), Северной Кореей (1961) и Вьетнамом (1978). Он заключил соглашения о размещении сил с Афганистаном в апреле 1980 года. Соглашение с Индией, заключенное в декабре 1982 года, предусматривает сотрудничество в области проектирования и изготовления морских судов; существуют другие и последующие договоренности о совместном производстве. Болгария имеет договоры дружбы с Камбоджей (1960), Лаосом (1979), Монголией (1967) и Вьетнамом (1979), Чехословакия с Лаосом и Вьетнамом (1980) и Афганистаном (1981), Венгрии с Афганистаном (1982), и Восточная Германия с Вьетнамом (1977), Кампучией (1980) и Афганистаном (1982).
   Китайская Народная Республика имеет договоры о дружбе и ненападении с Афганистаном, Бирмой и Непалом (все 1960 год) и Договор о дружбе, сотрудничестве и взаимной помощи с Северной Кореей (1961 год).
   5 октября 1982 года Куба и Вьетнам подписали Договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве. Ливия и Северная Корея подписали в ноябре 1982 года Договор о союзничестве или дружбе и сотрудничестве, который разрешает обмен военными данными, специалистами и поставками. Северная Корея и Танзания имеют соглашение, охватывающее аспекты обороны и безопасности.
   Австралия заключила соглашение и дополнительные соглашения о создании Сил обороны Папуа-Новой Гвинеи и оказании им помощи и предоставила в их распоряжение около 135 военнослужащих. В рамках ряда соглашений она поставляла оборонную технику Филиппинам, Малайзии, Сингапуру, Таиланду, Индонезии и большинству малых островных государств Тихого океана.
   В июле 1977 года Вьетнам и Лаос подписали ряд соглашений, которые содержали военные положения и пограничный пакт и которые, возможно, охватывали размещение вьетнамских войск в Лаосе. Аналогичная серия соглашений, как представляется, была заключена между Вьетнамом и режимом Хэн Самрина в Кампучии в феврале 1979 года и декабре 1982 года.
   Многосторонние договоренности
   В 1951 году Австралия, Новая Зеландия и Соединенные Штаты подписали трехсторонний договор (ANZUS), который вступил в силу 29 апреля 1952 года и действует бессрочно. Каждый согласится действовать для достижения общих интересах в случае нападения на метрополию или островную территорию любой из них, или их вооруженные силы, морские или воздушные суда в Тихом океане. В начале 1985 года протесты Новой Зеландии за визиты американских военных кораблей с ядерным оружием были истолкованы США как противоречащие духу ANZUS. Таким образом, характер договора вызывает сомнения. Связи между США и Новой Зеландией приостановлены, хотя между Австралией и Новой Зеландией они продолжаются. Американо-австралийские связи остаются тесными.
   Манильский пакт, подписанный 8 сентября 1954 года Австралией, Великобританией, Новой Зеландией, Пакистаном, Соединенными Штатами, Таиландом, Филиппинами и Францией, остается в силе, хотя впоследствии Франция и Пакистан вышли из него, а Организация Договора о Юго-Восточной Азии (СЕАТО), созданная для его осуществления, была распущена в 1977 году. Пакт призывает каждую из сторон принять меры для устранения общей угрозы, создаваемой вооруженной агрессией, и провести консультации, если какая-либо другая угроза угрожает территории, суверенитету или политической независимости любой из сторон. С 1962 года обязательства США перед Таиландом основываются на этом пакте.
   Ассоциация государств Юго-Восточной Азии (АСЕАН), созданная в 1967 году Индонезией, Малайзией, Филиппинами, Сингапуром и Таиландом и к которой в 1984 году присоединился Бруней, призвана содействовать региональному экономическому развитию, а не военному сотрудничеству. В рамках деятельности по содействию региональному миру и безопасности она обеспокоена присутствием Вьетнама в Кампучии. Она оказывает политическую поддержку Кампучийским движениям сопротивления, однако сообщения о поставках оружия повстанцам, как считается, являются результатом национальных, а не многосторонних инициатив.
   Соглашения об обороне пяти держав (Австралия, Малайзия, Новая Зеландия, Сингапур и Великобритания), касающиеся обороны Малайзии и Сингапура, вступили в силу 1 ноября 1971 года. В случае любого организованного извне или поддерживаемого вооруженного нападения или угрозы нападения на Малайзию или Сингапур пять правительств проведут совместные консультации с целью принятия решения о том, какие меры следует принять совместно или по отдельности. Великобритания вывела свои войска в марте 1976 года, но новозеландские войска остаются в Сингапуре, как и австралийские воздушные подразделения в Малайзии и Сингапуре, с небольшим армейским компонентом. Военно-морские силы Австралии и Новой Зеландии регулярно посещают Малайзию и Сингапур.
   Экономические аспекты
   После исключительно низких темпов роста в 1982 году азиатские экономики хорошо восстановились в 1983 году и сохраняли этот импульс на протяжении 1984 года и начала 1985 года. Средний региональный рост реального ВНП/ВВП составил чуть менее 5% по сравнению с чуть более 4% в предыдущем году (1-2% в 1982 году). Тайвань возглавил регион с темпами роста почти 11%, за ним следуют Сингапур (8,2%), Корея (7,6%) и Малайзия (7,3%). Большинство других колебалось около 5%, но у Филиппин сократились на 5,5%. Почти все государства смогли сдержать свои темпы инфляции, за исключением Филиппин, которые удвоили ее почти до 51%. Филиппины также лидировали по валовому внешнему долгу - около $ 26 млрд, или 80% ВВП, за ними следовали Новая Зеландия (64%), Малайзия (57%) и Корея и Шри-Ланка (56%). Из двух основных коммунистических экономик Северная Корея продолжала добиваться удовлетворительных показателей (рост ВВП оценивается примерно в 4%), в то время как Вьетнам столкнулся с постоянным серьезным экономическим спадом, поставив его в большую экономическую зависимость от Советского Союза.
   Страны АСЕАН, хотя и не являются военным союзом, как представляется, продвигаются к еще более тесным отношениям. У них не только общие цели, но и экономическая необходимость вынудит их к совместному использованию экономических ресурсов. Кроме того, Соединенные Штаты оказывают на них все большее давление с целью повышения их приверженности делу коллективной обороны, хотя она смягчает это давление, увеличивая свою военную помощь и кредиты Таиланду.
   Военные события
   Афганское Сопротивление продолжает с некоторым успехом наносить удары по всей стране, хотя ему по-прежнему не хватает современного ракетного оружия, необходимого для противодействия советской бронетехнике и авиации. Правительственные вооруженные силы, ослабленные чистками и дезертирством, еще не восстановлены, хотя они и добавляют вес Советским операциям. Советское командование многое сделало для ликвидации гражданской поддержки повстанцев в сельской местности, систематически уничтожая города и посевы, и разработало эффективную тесную авиационную поддержку и мобильную тактику защиты уязвимых точек. Ее нынешняя численность представляется достаточной для того, чтобы она могла контролировать районы, в которых она в настоящее время доминирует, без серьезного подкрепления. Военные, экономические и политические издержки войны не считаются настолько обременительными, чтобы вынудить к скорейшему выводу войск.
   Пакистан - зажатый между потенциальной угрозой нападения из Афганистана для поддержки и размещения повстанцев, и значительно превосходящей силой Индии и финансовыми препятствиями - медленно модернизирует свои ВВС. Индия продолжает усиливать свое количественное и качественное превосходство над любой возможной комбинацией противников. В то время как разнообразие источников ее нового оборудования может затруднить поставку запасных частей, самодостаточность растет.
   Пограничные кампании бирманского правительства против многочисленных частных армий продолжаются, но на относительно простом уровне. Больших успехов в отношении этих групп, казалось бы, требуют больше сил и средств. Крупных закупок оружия отмечено не было.
   Программа военных закупок Малайзии, как представляется, замедлилась. Ее силам потребуется время, чтобы освоить уже поставленные, а экономические соображения должны ограничить будущие закупки. Численность ее вооруженных сил сократилась примерно на 12%, но структура резерва была рационализирована. Сингапур также получает только непогашенные заказы, при этом о новых значительных закупках не сообщается. Индонезия, вторая по величине региональная держава, производит самолеты и вертолеты по лицензии; ее силы по-прежнему в основном способны осуществлять только операции по обеспечению внутренней безопасности. Индонезийские вооруженные силы реорганизуются для повышения эффективности цепочки общин. КОСТРАД будет составлять ядро полевой организации армии. Не KOSTRAD сил, назначенные для команд военной провинции (КОРЭМ) обеспечит быструю реакцию внутренних сил безопасности. Эта реорганизация должна быть завершена к апрелю 1986 года; некоторые из наших записей, которые предполагают ситуацию по состоянию на 1 июля 1985 года, могут быть несколько преждевременными.
   Успех Вьетнама в сухую погоду над Кампучийскими повстанцами, по-видимому, в значительной степени подорвал их способность к обычным операциям, заставив их вернуться к партизанской тактике; хотя и неприятные, они могут быть более легко сдержаны, и Вьетнам не показывает признаков ухода. Собственные силы Камбоджи по-прежнему не в состоянии провести больше, чем местные операции по обеспечению безопасности, а продолжающееся присутствие Вьетнама в Камбодже вынудило Таиланд искать значительные поставки из США.
   Силы Тайваня кажутся достаточно сильными, чтобы отразить любое крупное нападение на ее главный остров, но она все еще находится в далеке роде от самодостаточности. Вооруженные силы Филиппин глубоко привержены сдерживанию широко распространенной и растущей угрозы внутренней безопасности и располагают небольшим резервным потенциалом.
   Японское правительство пытается развивать свои силы самообороны, с тем чтобы играть более значительную роль в региональной обороне, однако эта концепция по-прежнему является политически спорной. Ранее планы закупок страдали от задержек, часто из-за недостаточного финансирования. Бремя оборонных расходов остается ниже 1 % от ВНП и это будет продолжаться. С другой стороны, давление США на японское правительство с целью увеличения расходов на оборону, похоже, растет.
   Противостоящие силы на Корейском полуострове примерно равны. Ни один из них не способен на успешное крупное наступление против другого без значительной иностранной помощи. Северная Корея переживает серьезную реорганизацию, по-видимому, для того, чтобы лучше использовать свой относительно новый ассортимент бронетанковой, механизированной и самоходной артиллерийской техники. Часть пехотных дивизий была механизирована. Как представляется, происходит переход от регулярных подразделений к резервным подразделениям в тыловых районах. Согласно сообщениям, численность персонала увеличилась примерно на 55 000 человек, или, возможно, на 7% в целом.
   Силы Шри-Ланки проводят широкомасштабную кампанию по обеспечению внутренней безопасности в целях сдерживания и изоляции тамильских сепаратистов. Это было дорогостоящим, как в живых, так и в материальных средствах, что представляет собой потенциально тяжелое экономическое бремя.

Latin America

   Continental Treaties and Agreements
   The Act of Chapultepec.
   Signed by Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the US, Uruguay and Venezuela in March and April 1945, this Act declared that if any aggression across boundaries established by treaty occurs, or threatens, the signatories will consult to agree upon measures up to and including the use of armed force to prevent or repel it.
   The Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Treaty of Rio).
   Signed in September 1947 by all parties to the Act of Chapultepec plus El Salvador and Trinidad and Tobago but except Ecuador and Nicaragua, this Treaty expands the Act, constrains signatories to settle disputes among themselves peacefully and provides for collective self-defence should any member be subjected to external attack. It came into force on 3 December 1948 and has been invoked some twelve times since. Cuba withdrew in March 1960.
   The Charter of the Organization of American States (OAS).
   Dated April 1948, the Charter embraces declarations based upon the Treaty of Rio. The members of the OAS- the signatories to the Act of Chapultepec plus Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, El Salvador, Grenada, Jamaica, St Kitts-Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago - are bound to settle internal disputes peacefully and take collective action in the event of external attack upon any signatory. It has a Permanent Council empowered to call meetings of the Foreign Ministers to deal with emergencies. Each member has one vote in each OAS agency. After 1965/6 an Inter-American Defence Board was formed to co-ordinate planning for a Permanent Peace Keeping Force.
   The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America (Tlatelolco Treaty).
   This was signed in February 1967 by 25 Latin American countries, 24 of which have ratified it (Argentina has not). Brazil and Chile will not implement it until all other Latin American states have done so. Cuba and Guyana have not signed it. The Treaty therefore is not in force for those five countries. Britain and the Netherlands have ratified it for the territories within the Treaty area for which they are internationally responsible and, with France and the US, have signed Protocol I (which commits states outside the region to accept, for their territories within it, the Treaty restrictions regarding the emplacement or storage of nuclear weapons); Britain, China, France, the USSR and the US have signed Protocol II (an undertaking not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against the parties to the Treaty). An Agency was set up to monitor compliance.
   Regional Agreements
   The 1903 treaty with the Republic of Panama, granting the United States virtual sovereign rights over the Canal Zone in perpetuity, was renegotiated, and the resulting 1977 Treaties came into force in October 1979. About 40% of the former Canal Zone will remain under US control until 31 December 1999. Defence of the Canal will be the joint responsibility of both nations, with Panama assuming an increasing role until the total accession of the Canal to her sovereignty. The US has guaranteed the area's neutrality after 2000. On 13 June 1984 Peru agreed to train Panama's naval forces.
   Belize (British Honduras) became independent on 21 September 1981. Britain agreed to leave troops as protection and to train the Belizean defence forces 'for an appropriate time'. The US also provides aid and training. Under the 'Commonwealth Pact', if a threat to Belize's independence occurs, Britain, Barbados, Bahamas, Canada, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will meet and consult.
   The Central American Defence Council (CONDECA) was formed in 1965 by El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama to contain subversion. In November 1981 El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras agreed an informal alliance against Cuba, Nicaragua and domestic guerrilla movements in each member country. The US provides assistance to Honduran based rebels against Nicaragua and to the Government against rebels in El Salvador. A similar regional grouping, the Central American Democratic Community (Costa Rica, Honduras and El Salvador; observers: Colombia, the US and Venezuela) agreed in January 1982 to provide mutual aid in case of external aggression. Argentina and Peru reportedly entered into a military pact in late 1982. A security agreement signed in October 1982 by Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, St Lucia and St Vincent was joined by St Kitts-Nevis on 8 February, 1984. Grenada reportedly will join.
   The US has had a bilateral agreement with Cuba for jurisdiction and control over Guantanamo Bay since 1934. In 1960 she stated that it could be modified or abrogated only by mutual agreement and that she had no intention of giving such an agreement. She has also leased 2.3 square miles from Bermuda for a naval and air base since 1941.
   The US, which has bilateral military sales arrangements at varying levels with most countries of the region, concluded a status-of-forces agreement with Antigua in 1977/8. The USSR has no known formal defence agreements with any of the states in the area.
   Cuba and Vietnam signed a 25-year Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation in October 1982. Cuba and the USSR supplied arms to Grenada before October 1983 and to Nicaragua. Most countries in the region, however, obtain their major equipments from Western, rather than Communist, countries. Belize signed a training agreement with Canada in June 1985.
   Argentina and Brazil are designing and manufacturing for export their own military equipment. Brazil has sold hers to the Middle East (Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Tunisia), Africa (Zambia), and Belgium and Canada, as well as Latin America, and has a training agreement with Suriname (1983). Chile is assembling Mirage 50 aircraft and light AFV under licence and reportedly has made some transfers to Paraguay.
   Economic Factors
   After two years of drastic decline in their total GDP (-1.5% in 1982, and -3.2% in 1983), Latin American countries in general have been able to see a slight increase, namely 2.4% in 1984. The Inter-American Development Bank, however, reported that per capita living standard is still only that of 1980. Moreover, while some countries have succeeded in reversing their GDP decline (notably Brazil with a 5.9% increase, Chile and Peru with 4% and Argentina with 2.5%) most others attained only zero growth, and Bolivia showed a GDP reduction of 7.6%. Inflation and debt, the most serious problems for the region, have also not been brought under control - indeed for many states they have become worse. Latin America witnessed inflationary increases overall, ranging from 140% to over 180%, with Bolivia registering over 2000%, Argentina 800% and Brazil 230% (only Mexico managed to halve inflation from 100% to about 50%.
Debts have also increased. Only three states (Venezuela, Jamaica, and Trinidad) were able to reduce their debt structure, while all others saw an increase of between 5% and 12%. In terms of debt/GNP ratio, Jamaica leads with 158%, followed by Cost Rica (129%), Chile (106%) and Peru (95%). Most others range between 50% and 80%. This general economic malaise is reflected in a real decrease in defence expenditures (e.g. Argentina and Peru), with most states reducing their equipment budgets. Only Central America has shown substantial increases in defence outlays.
   Military Developments
   Despite the agreement between Argentina and Chile over the Beagle Channel, there remain a number of long-standing disagreements over territory. None of the Latin American states, however, has sufficient military capability to engage in major combat with its neighbours. Almost all the regimes face varying degrees of threat from dissident forces within their society. Most of these threats can be, and are, contained by the para-military forces. The armies in general mainly constitute a mobile force to support the civil authority.
   The Central American region is the exception. Rebel groups, based in neighboring countries, pose a threat to the stability of Nicaragua and El Salvador. Because Honduras and Costa Rica are safe havens for elements hostile to the Nicaraguan regime, they face a potential threat from Nicaraguan security forces, particularly in their immediate border areas. Arms imports into Nicaragua have given her forces a greater combat capability than her neighbours, but reinforcement and external supplies would be needed in any major conflict. Guatemala's claim to a portion of Belize is unlikely to lead to military hostilities - in part because of the presence of British forces, in part because of US pressure, and in part because of the political costs of such an operation.
   Cuba, the largest military power in the region except the US, is not believed to have received significant military imports over the past year. She remains capable mainly of conventional defensive operations, although, given her political and ideological position, she could support clandestine guerrilla groups almost anywhere in Latin America.
  

Латинская Америка

   Континентальные договоры и соглашения
   Акт Чапультепека.
   Подписали Аргентина, Боливия, Бразилия, Чили, Колумбия, Коста-Рика, Куба, Доминиканская Республика, Эквадор, Гватемала, Гаити, Гондурас, Мексика, Никарагуа, Панама, Парагвай, Перу, США, Уругвае и Венесуэле в марте и апреле 1945 года, этот акт заявил, что при любой агрессии в границах, установленных договором, наступающей или угрожающей, подписавшие его стороны будут консультироваться, чтобы согласовать меры, вплоть до применения вооруженной силы для предотвращения или отражения.
   Межамериканский договор о взаимной помощи (договор Рио).
   Подписанный в сентябре 1947 года всеми участниками акта Чапультепек плюс Сальвадор и Тринидад и Тобаго, но за исключением Эквадора и Никарагуа, этот договор расширяет действие закона, принуждает подписавшие стороны урегулировать споры между собой мирным путем и предусматривает коллективную самооборону в случае, если какой-либо член подвергнется внешнему нападению. Он вступил в силу 3 декабря 1948 года и с тех пор применялся примерно двенадцать раз. Куба вышла в марте 1960 года.
   Устав Организации Американских Государств (ОАГ).
   От апреля 1948 года Устав охватывает декларацией на основании договора Рио. Члены ОАГ - стороны, подписавшие акт Чапультепека, а также Антигуа и Барбуда, Барбадос, Доминика, Гренада, Сент-Китс-Невис, Сент-Винсент, Суринам, Тринидад и Тобаго, Сальвадор, Ямайка и Ямайка обязаны урегулировать внутренние споры мирным путем и принять коллективные меры в случае внешнего нападения на любую из подписавших его сторон. Он имеет постоянный совет, уполномоченный созывать заседания министров иностранных дел для рассмотрения чрезвычайных ситуаций. Каждый член имеет один голос в ОАГ. После 1965/6 года был создан Межамериканский Совет обороны для координации планирования постоянных сил по поддержанию мира.
   Договор по запрещению ядерного оружия в Латинской Америке (договор Тлателолко).
   Он был подписан в феврале 1967 года 25 латиноамериканскими странами, 24 из которых ратифицировали его (Аргентина не ратифицировала). Бразилия и Чили не будут осуществлять его до тех пор, пока все другие латиноамериканские государства не сделают этого. Куба и Гайана его не подписали. Поэтому договор не действует для этих пяти стран. Великобритания и Нидерланды ратифицировали его для территорий в районе действия договора, за которые они несут международную ответственность, а Франция и США, подписали протокол I (которая обязывает государства за пределами региона, принять, на своей территории в ее пределах, договорных ограничений в отношении размещения или хранения ядерного оружия); Великобритания, Китай, Франция, СССР и США подписали протокол II (обязательство не применять и не угрожать применением ядерного оружия против участников Договора). Было создано Агентство по контролю за соблюдением.
   Региональные соглашения
   Договор 1903 года с Республикой Панама, предоставляющий Соединенным Штатам фактические суверенные права в отношении зоны канала на бессрочной основе, был пересмотрен, и в результате в октябре 1979 года вступили в силу договоры 1977 года. Около 40% бывшей зоны канала будет оставаться под контролем США до 31 декабря 1999 года. Защита канала будет совместной обязанностью обеих стран, при этом Панама будет играть все более активную роль вплоть до полного присоединения канала к своему суверенитету. США гарантировали нейтралитет региона после 2000 года. 13 июня 1984 года Перу согласилась обучать панамские военно-морские силы.
   Белиз (Британский Гондурас) стал независимым 21 сентября 1981 года. Британия согласилась оставить войска в качестве защиты и подготовить белизские силы обороны "на соответствующее время". США также предоставляют помощь и обучение. В соответствии с "пактом Содружества" в случае возникновения угрозы независимости Белиза Великобритания, Барбадос, Багамские острова, Гайана, Канада, Тринидад и Тобаго и Ямайка будут встречаться и консультироваться.
   Центральноамериканский Совет обороны (CONDECA) был сформирован в 1965 году Гватемалой, Гондурасом, Панамой и Сальвадором для сдерживания подрывной деятельности. В ноябре 1981 года Гватемала, Гондурас и Сальвадор заключили неофициальный союз против Кубы, Никарагуа и внутренних партизанских движений в каждой из стран-членов. США оказывает помощь повстанцам базирующимся в Гондурасе против Никарагуа и правительству против повстанцев в Сальвадоре. Аналогичная региональная группа - центральноамериканское демократическое сообщество (Гондурас, Коста-Рика и Сальвадор; наблюдатели: Колумбия, США и Венесуэла) договорились в январе 1982 года об оказании взаимной помощи в случае внешней агрессии. Как сообщается, Аргентина и Перу заключили военный пакт в конце 1982 года. 8 февраля 1984 года к соглашению об обеспечении безопасности, подписанному в октябре 1982 года Антигуа, Барбадосом, Доминикой, Сент-Люсией и Сент-Винсентом, присоединился Сент-Китс-Невис. Гренада, как сообщается, присоединится.
   С 1934 года США заключили двустороннее соглашение с Кубой о юрисдикции и контроле над заливом Гуантанамо. В 1960 году они заявили, что оно может быть изменено или отменено только по взаимному согласию и что они не намерена давать такое согласие. Они также арендовали 2,3 квадратных миль Бермудских островов для военно-морской и воздушной базы с 1941 года.
   США, которые имеют двусторонние соглашения о военных продажах на различных уровнях с большинством стран региона, заключили соглашение о статусе сил с Антигуа в 1977/8 годах. СССР не имеет известных официальных оборонных соглашений ни с одним из государств региона.
   Куба и Вьетнам подписали 25-летний договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве в октябре 1982 года. Куба и СССР поставляли оружие Гренаде до октября 1983 года и Никарагуа. Однако большинство стран региона получают основное оборудование из западных, а не коммунистических стран. Белиз подписал соглашение о подготовке кадров с Канадой в июне 1985 года.
   Аргентина и Бразилия разрабатывают и производят на экспорт собственную военную технику. Бразилия продала свое оружие Ближнему Востоку (Алжир, Ирак, Ливия, Тунис), Африке (Замбия), Бельгии и Канаде, а также Латинской Америке и заключила соглашение о подготовке кадров с Суринамом (1983 год). Чили осуществляет сборку самолетов Mirage 50 и легких БМП по лицензии и, как сообщается, осуществила некоторые поставки в Парагвай.
   Экономические факторы
   После двух лет резкого сокращения их общего ВВП (-1,5% в 1982 году и -3,2% в 1983 году) латиноамериканские страны в целом смогли увидеть небольшой рост, а именно 2,4% в 1984 году. Однако Межамериканский банк развития сообщил, что уровень жизни на душу населения по-прежнему соответствует уровню 1980 года. Более того, в то время как некоторым странам удалось обратить вспять процесс снижения ВВП (в частности, Бразилии с увеличением на 5,9%, Чили и Перу с 4% и Аргентине с 2,5%), большинство других стран достигли лишь нулевого роста, а Боливия продемонстрировала снижение ВВП на 7,6%. Инфляция и задолженность, наиболее серьезные проблемы для региона, также не были взяты под контроль - действительно, для многих государств они стали еще хуже. В Латинской Америке инфляционный рост составил от 140% до более 180%, в Боливии - более 2000%, Аргентине-800% и Бразилии-230% (только Мексике удалось вдвое снизить инфляцию со 100% до примерно 50%).
   Долги также увеличились. Только три государства (Венесуэла, Ямайка и Тринидад) смогли сократить свою структуру долга, в то время как во всех других наблюдался рост от 5% до 12%. По соотношению долг/ВНП Ямайка лидирует со 158%, за ней следуют Коста-Рика (129%), Чили (106%) и Перу (95%). Большинство другие колеблются между 50% и 80%. Это общее экономическое недомогание находит свое отражение в реальном сокращении расходов на оборону (например, Аргентина и Перу), при этом большинство государств сокращают свои бюджеты на вооружение. Только Центральная Америка продемонстрировала значительное увеличение расходов на оборону.
   Военные события
   Несмотря на соглашение между Аргентиной и Чили по проливу Бигль, по-прежнему существует ряд давних разногласий в отношении территории. Однако ни одно из латиноамериканских государств не обладает достаточным военным потенциалом для ведения крупных боевых действий со своими соседями. Почти все режимы сталкиваются с различной степенью угрозы со стороны диссидентских сил в их обществе. Большинство этих угроз могут сдерживаться и сдерживаются полувоенными силами. Армии в целом представляют собой главным образом мобильные силы для поддержки гражданской власти.
   Исключением является Центральноамериканский регион. Повстанческие группы, базирующиеся в соседних странах, создают угрозу стабильности Никарагуа и Сальвадора. Поскольку Гондурас и Коста-Рика являются убежищами для элементов, враждебных Никарагуанскому режиму, они сталкиваются с потенциальной угрозой со стороны никарагуанских сил безопасности, особенно в их ближайших приграничных районах. Импорт оружия в Никарагуа дал ее силам больший боевой потенциал, чем ее соседям, однако в любом крупном конфликте потребуется подкрепление и внешние поставки. Претензии Гватемалы на часть Белиза вряд ли приведут к военным действиям - отчасти из-за присутствия британских сил, отчасти из-за давления США, а отчасти из-за политических издержек такой операции.
   Считается, что Куба, крупнейшая военная держава в регионе, за исключением США, за последний год не получила значительного военного импорта. Она по-прежнему способна проводить в основном обычные оборонительные операции, хотя, учитывая ее политическую и идеологическую позицию, она могла бы поддерживать подпольные партизанские группы практически в любой точке Латинской Америки.

   4. NATO DEFENCE OUTLAYS (1980-83) MEASURED BY DIFFERENT YARDSTICKS
   This table demonstrates the differing assessments of NATO defence outlays that result from applying to the same base figures the methodologies of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA) and the US Department of Defense (DoD).
   The base figures are the first set of figures in the top row.They are member countries' defence expenditures (according to the NATO definition) expressed in local currency at current market prices. These figures have been converted to constant 1980 prices using an IMF GDP deflator (IISS methodology) or an IMF consumer price deflator (SIPRI methodology) to give the other sets offiguresinthe top row.
   The first set of figures in the middle rowis calculated by converting the base figures into dollars at the prevailing exchange rates. The IISS and SIPRI figures in the middle row result from converting the relevant figures in the top row at 1980 exchange rates.
   The first set of figures in the bottom row results from the ACDA methodology, which applies to the base figures both an IMF GDP deflator and a US price deflator, 'in order to account for national differences in the behaviour of prices', and then converts the result into constant dolars. The final set of figures was produced by the DoD, which has not indicated its methodology.

Estimating the Soviet-US Strategic Balance

   The strategic nuclear systems deployed by the United States and the Soviet Union can be compared using a wide variety of measures. Perhaps most commonly, such comparisons are expressed in terms of the basic characteristics of the forces in peacetime - such as the number of delivery systems available to each side, or the number of warheads which those systems can deliver. Alternatively, analysts can attempt to assess the military potential inherent in nuclear systems by estimating, for example, missile throw-weight and bomber payload, the total destructive power ('yield') of each side's strategic nuclear weapons, or the effectiveness of strategic nuclear weapons against specific kinds of targets. A number of these measures are described below.
   However, its is important to note at the outset that no single measurement can give a full representation of the strategic nuclear balance. One measure may be useful for some purposes but not for others, and there is considerable debate among analysts as to which measures should be given greatest weight in assessing the overall balance. Moreover, many of these measures are often either themselves subject to considerable uncertainties (e.g., weapon yield) or else very sensitive to predicted performance (deliverable warheads) or to other assumptions which are also highly uncertain (e.g., effectiveness against particular classes of targets). Finally, all these estimates are in any case essentially static measures of the balance; they provide alternative indices of the potential of strategic nuclear forces in peacetime, but they cannot portray how these forces might interact in the event of war. Nor can these measures necessarily be applied in the same way to the specific purposes of arms control. (In the US-Soviet SALT II Treaty, for example, verification considerations required 'counting rules' which assumed the all missiles of a given type carried the maximum number of warheads with which any missile of that type had been tested.)
   Delivery Systems and Deliverable Weapons
   The most straightforward means of measuring the strategic nuclear balance is to count the total number of delivery systems - ICBM, SLBM and long-range bombers - available to the two sides. However, this measure alone is of limited relevance, for it neglects the fact that almost all delivery systems can now carry several (and, in some cases, a varying number of) warheads which can be directed against separate targets. It is more relevant, therefore, to assess the numbers of separately-targetable warheads that each system can carry. However, ICBM and SLBM are frequently deployed (particularly by the USSR) in a number of modifications, in order to provide a degree of employment flexibility in terms of yield, accuracy, operational range and numbers of warheads. To take an extreme case, the Soviet SS-18 deployed in four (and perhaps shortly five) modifications which carry warheads ranging from 1x20 MT to 10x50 KT.
   Because it is often difficult, if not impossible, to determine precisely which missiles embody which modifications, total numbers of warheads on missiles (and consequently their total yields) cannot be estimated with precision. Similarly, the force loadings of aircraft (i.e., the numbers and yields of gravity bombs, and the numbers and yields of stand-off air-to-surface missiles) cannot be precisely stated, beyond the fact that there is a maximum payload a given aircraft can carry over its operational range. Plans for specific force loadings for specific targets can also be changed. Here we have assessed probable operational loadings.
   Measuring Destructive Power
   A second general approach to measuring the balance seeks to assess the military potential inherent in the nuclear systems of the two sides. The crudest method is to assess bomber payload and missile throw-weight to reach a rough measure of the total destructive power available in a strategic force. This takes no account of the sub-division of available payload and throw weight into separately-targetable weapons, but it does give a measure of the total weight of nuclear ordnance that could be delivered against an opponent. It also takes little account of technological developments. For example, miniaturizing warheads and increasing their accuracy can significantly augment the destructive effects of any given payload. Nor do estimates of payload and throw-weight relate the destructive power of nuclear weapons to potential targets. To do so, it is necessary not only to distinguish between 'area' targets (such as cities and major military concentrations), on the one hand, and 'point' targets (such as hardened missile sites, command-and-control centres, etc.), on the other, but also to account for the effects of yield and accuracy.
   A crude measurement of capability against area targets is aggregate warhead yield, expressed in megatons. But destructive power does not grow proportionately with a simple increase in yield; a 10-MT weapon is not ten times as destructive as a 1-MT weapon. Hence, a more accurate indicator is 'equivalent megatonnage' (EMT), which for a given warhead is usually expressed as the two-thirds power of its explosive yield, or Y2^- (Thus the EMT of a 200-KT warhead is (0.2)%, or 0.34.) However, EMTmay overstate the effectiveness of very large weapons, because the area of potential destruction is likely to exceed the area of the target to be destroyed.
   In the case of point targets, one must relate the predicted level of destruction (normally blast overpressure, measured in pounds per square inch above atmospheric pressure) to the degree of protection ('hardness') of the target. Here the accuracy of delivery systems and their warheads becomes critical. One widely-used measure of weapon capability against point targets is 'counter-military potential' (CMP). Accuracy is taken into account by the use of the formula
    []
   CEP (circular error probable) being the radius of circle within which half of the warheads are expected to fall. Because it varies inversely with the square of CEP, CMP is critically dependent not only on predicted system accuracy but also on the precision with which this accuracy can be assessed. As CEPS become very low, the CNPS of particular weapons systems tend towards infinity. If the CMPS for such' systems are aggregated with those of less accurate systems, the point target kill capability of the whole force may be exaggerated.
   Of all the characteristics of strategic nuclear weapons systems, accuracy is one of the hardest to predict. It can at best be only an estimate derived from the observation of a number of test firings. But this estimate is bound to be subject to major uncertainties. The number of tests conducted for a specific model is not statistically large; tests are not carried out over the operational trajectories of the delivery systems; when observing tests it can be difficult to determine the precise point of aim, and thus to measure deviation; and meteorological conditions in the impact area can also cause significant deviations. While it is clear that the trend of delivery technologies has been towards greater accuracy, the uncertainty in assessing accuracy may be quite high. Since accuracies are squared in the equation above, it becomes obvious how tentative any assessment of CMP must be.
   However, even if EMT and CMP could be precisely determined and then aggregated for entire strategic forces, they would not be wholly effective instruments for measuring the balance of these forces. Such forces are targeted against a mix of area and point targets, and these yardsticks would only be valid it an entire force were to be applied exclusively to either area targets (in the case of EMT) or point targets (in the case of CMP). Thus, both EMT and CMP would be uncertain measures even if warhead numbers, yields and accuracies were known precisely for both sides (though the uncertainties of EMT are significantly less than those of CMP).
   For these reasons, there is no single, fully satisfactory way of comparing the strategic nuclear forces of the US and the USSR. Numbers ofwarheads and bombs loaded on the delivery systems (particularly, but not only, aircraft) are subject to major uncertainties. The alternative method - relating delivery systems to specific targets - depends critically on factors of performance and accuracy which cannot be measured with precision. It is important to recognize these shortcomings in any evaluation of the strategic nuclear balance between the US and the USSR and to understand that all such evaluations rely on many assumptions to provide a basis for assessment.
   In the following two tables - the first comparing the number of deliverable warheads available to either side, the second the equivalent megatonnage (EMT) - the Institute provides its assessment on the basis of certain assumptions about warhead loadings, numbers, ranges and yields. These assumptions are made clear in the notes to the accompanying Tables. The sign ~ is used to show approximation. Subject to the qualifications and uncertainties noted above, what these Tables suggest is an approximate superiority in deployed ICBM and SLBM warheads of about 1.20: 1 on the part of the strategic forces of the Soviet Union over those of the United States. When bomber-delivered weapons (including SRAM) are added, the US warhead total rises to about 10,174 and the Soviet total (due to the much smaller size of the Soviet strategic bomber force) to about 9,887. Our estimates of total EMT, on the other hand, suggest a Soviet advantage of over 2.39: 1 in ICBM and SLBM, and of roughly 1.61: 1 when bomber-delivered weapons are included.

Оценка советско-американского стратегического баланса

   Стратегические ядерные системы, развернутые Соединенными Штатами и Советским Союзом, можно сравнить с помощью самых различных способов. Возможно, чаще всего такие сравнения выражаются в терминах основных характеристик сил в мирное время - таких, как количество систем доставки, имеющихся в распоряжении каждой стороны, или количество боеголовок, которые эти системы могут доставить. В качестве альтернативы аналитики могут попытаться оценить военный потенциал, присущий ядерным системам, путем оценки, например, веса ракет и полезной нагрузки бомбардировщиков, общей разрушительной силы ("выхода") стратегических ядерных вооружений каждой стороны или эффективности стратегических ядерных вооружений против конкретных видов целей. Ряд этих мер описан ниже.
   Однако важно с самого начала отметить, что ни одно измерение не может дать полного представления о стратегическом ядерном балансе. Одна мера может быть полезна для одних целей, но не для других, и среди аналитиков широко обсуждается вопрос о том, каким мерам следует уделять наибольшее внимание при оценке общего баланса. Кроме того, оценки многих из этих мер зачастую либо сами по себе подвержены значительной неопределенности (например, доставляемые боеголовки, совокупный выход), либо весьма чувствительны к прогнозируемой эффективности или к другим предположениям, которые также весьма неопределенны (например, эффективность в отношении конкретных классов целей). Наконец, все эти оценки в любом случае являются по существу статическими показателями баланса; они дают альтернативные показатели потенциала стратегических ядерных сил в мирное время, но не могут показать, как эти силы могут взаимодействовать в случае войны. Эти меры не могут также применяться аналогичным образом к конкретным целям контроля над вооружениями. (Например, в советско-американском договоре о ОСВ II соображения проверки требовали "правил подсчета", которые предполагали, что все ракеты данного типа имеют максимальное количество боеголовок, с которыми была испытана любая ракета этого типа.)
   Системы доставки и доставляемое оружие
   Наиболее простым средством измерения стратегического ядерного баланса является подсчет общего числа систем доставки - МБР, БРПЛ и дальних бомбардировщиков, - имеющихся в распоряжении обеих сторон. Однако сама по себе эта мера имеет ограниченное значение, поскольку она игнорирует тот факт, что почти все системы доставки в настоящее время могут нести несколько (а в некоторых случаях и различное число) боеголовок, которые могут быть направлены против отдельных целей. Поэтому более уместно оценить количество отдельно нацеливаемых боеголовок, которые может нести каждая система. Однако МБР и БРПЛ часто развертываются с рядом модификаций, с тем чтобы обеспечить определенную гибкость в плане производительности, точности, дальности действия и количества боеголовок. В крайнем случае, Советский SS-18 развернут в четырех (и, возможно, вскоре пяти) модификациях, которые несут боеголовки в диапазоне от 1х20 МТ до 10x50 КТ.
   Поскольку часто бывает трудно, если не невозможно, точно определить, какие ракеты содержат какие модификации, общее количество боеголовок на ракетах (и, следовательно, их суммарный выход) не может быть оценено точно. Точно так же нельзя точно определить боевые нагрузки самолетов (т.е. количество и мощность свободнопадающих бомб, а также количество и мощность ракет класса "воздух-поверхность"), кроме того факта, что существует максимальная полезная нагрузка, которую данный самолет может нести в пределах своей эксплуатационной дальности. Планы конкретных боевых нагрузок для конкретных целей также могут быть изменены. Здесь мы оценили возможные эксплуатационные нагрузки
   Измерение Разрушительной Мощности
   Второй общий подход к измерению баланса направлен на оценку военного потенциала, присущего ядерным системам обеих сторон. Самый грубый метод заключается в оценке полезной нагрузки бомбардировщика и забрасываемой массы ракеты для достижения приблизительной оценки общей разрушительной силы, имеющейся в стратегических силах. При этом не учитывается подраздел имеющегося полезного груза и забрасываемого веса на отдельные виды оружия, но зато дается мера общего веса ядерных боеприпасов, которые могли бы быть выставлены против противника. Он также мало учитывает технологические достижения. Например, миниатюризация боеголовок и повышение их точности могут значительно усилить разрушительное воздействие полезной нагрузки. Оценки полезной нагрузки и забрасываемой массы также не соотносят разрушительную силу ядерного оружия с потенциальными целями. Для этого необходимо не только проводить различие между "площадными" целями (такими, как города и крупные военные концентрации), с одной стороны, и "точечными" целями (такими, как укрепленные ракетные комплексы, командно-контрольные центры и т.д.), с другой стороны, но также для учета влияния мощности и точности.
   Грубым измерением потенциала против площадных целей является совокупная мощьность боеголовок, выраженный в мегатоннах. Но разрушительная сила не растет пропорционально с простым увеличением мощности; 10-МТ оружие не в десять раз разрушительнее 1-МТ оружия. Следовательно, более точным показателем является "эквивалентный мегатоннаж" (ЕМТ), который для данной боеголовки обычно выражается как мощность в две трети ее взрывной мощности, или Y 2/3. (Таким образом, ЕМТ в 200-кт БЧ (0.2)^2/3, или 0,34.) Однако ЕМТ может преувеличить эффективность очень крупного оружия, поскольку площадь потенциального уничтожения, вероятно, превысит площадь уничтожаемой цели.
   В случае точечных целей необходимо соотнести прогнозируемый уровень разрушения (обычно избыточное давление взрыва, измеренное в фунтах на квадратный дюйм выше атмосферного давления) со степенью защиты ("твердостью") цели. Здесь точность систем доставки и их боеголовок становится критической. Один широко используемый показатель способности оружие против точечных целей является контр-силовой потенциал (СМР). Точность учитывается при использовании формулы
    []
   СЕР (КВО - круговое вероятное отклонение) - радиус круга, в пределах которого половина боеголовок пададет. Поскольку он изменяется обратно пропорционально квадрату CEP, CMP критически зависит не только от точности прогнозируемой системы, но и от точности, с которой эта точность может быть оценена. По мере того, как уровень CEP становится очень низким, CMP конкретных оружейных систем стремятся к бесконечности. Если CMPS для таких систем агрегируются с менее точными системами, то возможность уничтожения точечной цели всей силы может быть преувеличена.
   Из всех характеристик систем стратегических ядерных вооружений точность предсказать труднее всего. В лучшем случае это может быть лишь оценка, полученная в результате наблюдения за рядом испытательных стрельб. Однако эта оценка неизбежно будет подвержена значительной неопределенности. Число испытаний, проводимых для конкретной модели, не является статистически большим; испытания не проводятся по эксплуатационным траекториям систем доставки; при наблюдении испытаний может быть трудно определить точную точку прицеливания и, таким образом, измерить отклонение; а метеоусловия в зоне воздействия также могут вызвать значительные отклонения. Хотя очевидно, что тенденция технологий доставки была направлена на повышение точности, неопределенность в оценке точности может достигать +-50%. Поскольку в приведенном выше уравнении точность возведена в квадрат, становится очевидным, насколько предварительной должна быть любая оценка CMP.
   Однако, даже если ЕМТ и CMP можно было бы точно определить и затем агрегировать для всех стратегических сил, они не были бы полностью эффективными инструментами для измерения баланса этих сил. Такие силы нацелены на сочетание площадных и точечных целей, и эти критерии будут действительны только в том случае, если целые силы будут применяться исключительно к площадным целям (в случае EMT) или точечным целям (в случае CMP). Таким образом, и ЕМТ, и CMP были бы неопределенными мерами, даже если бы количество, мощность и точность боеголовок были точно известны обеим сторонам (хотя неопределенности ЕМТ значительно меньше, чем неопределенности СМР).
   По этим причинам не существует единого, полностью удовлетворительного способа сравнения стратегических ядерных сил США и СССР. Число боеголовок и бомб, загружаемых в системы доставки (особенно, но не только, в самолеты) , является предметом серьезной неопределенности. Альтернативный метод - увязка систем доставки с конкретными целями - в решающей степени зависит от факторов эффективности и точности, которые невозможно измерить с точностью. Важно признавать эти недостатки при любой оценке стратегического ядерного баланса между США и СССР и понимать, что все подобные оценки опираются на многие допущения, закладывающие основу для оценки.
   В следующих двух таблицах - в первой, сравнивая количество доставляемых боеголовок, имеющихся у обеих сторон, во-второй, эквивалентный мегатноонаж (ЭМТ) - институт осуществляет оценку на основе определенных предположений о нагрузках БЧ, числе, дальности и мощности. Эти предположения четко изложены в примечаниях к прилагаемым таблицам. Знак ~ показывает приближение. С учетом вышеизложенных оговорок и неопределенностей в этих таблицах предлагается приблизительное равенство между стратегическими силами Советского Союза и Соединенных Штатов в развернутых боеголовках МБР и БРПЛ - около 7000. Когда учитываются бомбардировщики доставляющие оружие (включая SRAM), общее количество американского увеличивается примерно до 9300, а советского (из-за гораздо меньшего размера советских стратегических бомбардировочных сил) - до около 7300. С другой стороны, наши оценки общей ЭМТ предполагают советское преимущество более чем 2,65:1 в МБР и БРПЛ и примерно 1,6: 1, когда включено оружие, доставляемое бомбардировщиками.

The East-West Conventional Balance in Europe

   Assessing the conventional balance between NATO and the Warsaw Pact using comparisons of manpower, combat units or equipment contains quite a large margin of uncertainty. There are a number of characteristics which it is almost impossible to evaluate: the quality of units or equipment, geographical advantages, doctrine, military technology, deployment, training, logistic support, morale, leadership, tactical initiative, terrain, weather, political will and alliance cohesion. Such comparisons must in any case be set within the wider political and strategic contexts including the nuclear balance, world-wide force deployments, the reinforcement potential of both sides and, most important, the relative strengths of the respective navies and long-range tactical and support air forces.
   One cannot foretell the form and scope of any hostilities, their duration, their management or their results. Recent conflicts have shown that the expenditure of materiel can run well above even the highest previous estimates. The impact of this factor on the ability to sustain combat, on the theatre logistics arrangements, or on the national infrastructures cannot be estimated. Yet all these factors have a bearing on the employment of the forces in Europe, on their reinforcement and on the resources needed to supply them.
   Direct comparisons between items of military equipment, are also difficult. It is possible to compare, for example, the numbers of tanks of each side, but the tanks in the respective Alliances are obviously not necessarily equivalent in terms of battle-worthiness. Some are old and unmodernized: others are modern and sophisticated. The former may not move as fast, take such advantage of the terrain, fire with the same chance of a first-round hit, resist hits or communicate with each other so well. Moreover, although the tank is still highly regarded as perhaps one of the best anti-tank weapons, other and very efficient tank-killers exist - such as armed helicopters, modern ground-attack aircraft, vehicle-mounted guided anti-tank weapons and mines. In short, there are many static and dynamic factors which must be considered if a true comparison of forces is to be made.
   Bearing those considerations in mind, therefore, the question of numerical balance will be reviewed in the table accompanying this essay using a number of different static indicators under the headings of Manpower, Divisions or Divisional equivalents, Ground Forces equipment, Naval units, Naval and maritimeassociated aircraft and Land Attack and Fighter aircraft. Totals are given for NATO in Central and Northern Europe (taken together) and in Southern Europe, for the United States Forces in Europe or in sea areas adjacent to Europe and, by category, for NATO as a whole. Compared with these totals will be the equivalents for the non-Soviet Warsaw Pact, for the Soviet Union's forces opposed to NATO and the totals for each category.
   Defining the Combat Zone
   One of the central problems for analysis is whether to compare forces at a very high level of aggregation (i.e., Alliance totals) or to attempt to define more realistic interactions (i.e., by fronts). Yet it has to be acknowledged that quite large elements of the forces of both sides are not necessarily committed at the outset to specific combat zones. A substantial degree of flexibility to switch these at will exists, especially with Soviet reserve forces. The Northern and Central European sectors are shown here as one entity, yet this is inevitably an incomplete notion. The Norwegian land forces, for example, have deployed a major element of their active field forces to protect the northern approaches to the country, against which the Soviet forces in the northern Leningrad Military District pose a substantial potential threat (and plan to reinforce the far north in war). The Norwegian Navy must assign its larger vessels to support the Atlantic coastal flank of the forces in northern Norway, but the Soviet Baltic Fleet poses a threat to southern Norway, forcing the Navy to attend also to that area. The Norwegian Air Force has to be prepared to support both sectors. The West German province of Schleswig-Holstein, although also part of NATO's Northern Command, must anticipate attack both from the direction of East Germany and from the Sea.
   NATO's Southern Flank Commander has to be prepared to defend three widely separated fronts, each with its own peculiar tactical and supply requirements. Italy must contest any Pact threat from Central Europe. Greece and Turkey must between them defend Thrace and the Aegean Sea and their air space, while Turkey must also defend her eastern border in the Caucasus.
   Manpower
   The total number of men in uniform for all countries is given. Yet many of those in the armed forces of th'e super-powers may well be committed outside the NATO area. The totals for those forces available for combat and actually located in Europe include, for NATO, French and Canadian forces in Germany but not Spanish forces. For the USSR, those in the Kola Peninsula opposite Norway are included, as are those in the Trans-Caucasus MD facing Turkey.
   In the event of hostilities erupting, or threatening to erupt, the standing forces in combat zones could be augmented quite quickly. This can be done either by moving standing forces to Europe or by mobilizing the reserves, either for combat in place or to be moved to Europe by those outside powers. Again, of the total reserves in these states, not all would be available for deployment in the European threatre or could necessarily be mobilized and moved in time to affect the outcome of hostilities.
   Mobilization
   The rate at which nations can mobilize will depend upon the system adopted, staff procedures and competence, distances and the transport facilities available. The rate at which nations will mobilize will depend on the warning received, on political will, on the ability to make decisions and put them into effect, and on how far enemy action obstructs mobilization. The Warsaw Pact countries have maintained reserves based upon conscripts who have completed their period of obligatory service. Those who have been released less than five years would probably be available for immediate service; after more than five years the men would need refresher training. The Soviet Union, in particular, uses the Military District organization for recalling and placing reservists into skeleton formations ('category 2' and 'category 3' divisions) for war. A fourth category, divisions with obsolescent equipment and older reserves, may be mobilized in some Districts. The links between the central USSR and/the borders are more than adequate for rapid movement towards potential battlefronts, so long as they stay free from attack. The limitations of Soviet internal communications might make it difficult to switch divisions from one part of the USSR to another.
   Within Europe many countries can mobilize in place. In the case of Britain, movement to the mainland of Europe is less easy and is liable to interdiction. Those countries which must move reinforcements across the Atlantic clearly face the possibility of serious interruption. Finally, the United States, Britain and Canada do not have a large pool of trained reserve manpower comparable to that available to other nations which have universal conscription.
   Formations
   The normal measure of force comparison is the division, defined as the smallest force capable of independent combat action, generally an allarms force with its own logistics support. In all cases the term 'tank' includes tank and armoured; 'mech' includes mechanized, motorized and motor rifle divisions; 'other' includes airborne, air portable, air assault, mountain, amphibious and light infantry divisions. These distinctions are sometimes hard to make, and recategorization is not uncommon. Not all national armies field divisional organizations in peacetime. To simplify the presentation, three brigades (nine battalions of armour, infantry or a mix) are considered to be a divisional equivalent - setting aside provision of support elements, including artillery, field engineers and logistics support units, etc. The first category in the Table shows divisions actually in place in Europe and manned in peacetime. For NATO they include, besides forces of the Continental states adjacent to the NATO fronts, Britain's BAOR, Canadian units, France's Third Corps and the US Army in Europe. For the Soviet Union, this would include the formations in the Kola and those in the Trans-Caucasus in addition to those already in Eastern Europe and the European USSR.
   Because of the difficulties of establishing the precise level of combat readiness of the reinforcement formations, the former categories 'divisions manned and available for immediate frontal reinforcement' and 'extra divisions available on mobilizing first-line reserves' have been combined: Category 2 and 3 in the Byelorussian and Carpathian MDSfor the Western theatre, Kiev and Odessa MDS for the South-western theatre, and North Caucassus MD for the Southern theatre. Secondary reinforcement would include the category 3 divisions and those cadre or 'shadow' formations in the above MDS, equivalent to the existing organization. Not included in these figures are territorial defence or Home Guard units. Unlike previous years, we now attempt to calculate the force augmentation provided by major support arms units under Corps/ Army, Army or Army Group/Front control. Details of this support are contained in the 'Deployment' section of the USSR's country entry and in the table of Soviet Army Organization and Equipment which follows this essay. These considerations have again resulted in significant changes in estimates of divisional readiness and deployment categories compared with earlier editions of The Military Balance. These estimates of necessity have had to be arbitrary.
   Equipment
   Equipment holdings can be broken Lurssen into categories. The complicating factors are that total holdings of equipment do not necessarily match the sum of what appears to be held on divisional establishments. There are significant variations in those establishments (generally stemming from location and role), and there are equipment reserves, the holdings of non-divisional units and stockpiles to add. Not all equipment will be in theatre at the outbreak of hostilities. Soviet formations moving from the Western USSR will be expected to take their full unit inventories. These may be larger (and the equipment more modern) than those of divisions in other areas. Some American reinforcing formations, on the other hand, plan to equip themselves from stockpiles in Europe. For these reasons, the Table includes for each side only the total holdings of equipment known or estimated to be in Europe.
   Naval Forces
   In the case of NATO we show the numbers of vessels presumed to be in the Eastern Atlantic, Channel, North Sea and Mediterranean. For the Warsaw Pact, we include the Soviet Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets, together with nonSoviet Pact vessels in the Baltic and Black Seas. Soviet naval forces in the Mediterranean are drawn from the Black Sea Fleet or, in the case of submarines, from the Northern Fleet. As with ground force equipment, there are great disparities within categories, both with respect to capability and age. Classification of naval or maritime aircraft by. type conforms to the nomenclature used in the country entries. The figures include both land- and sea-based aircraft with a clear maritime role in the above sea areas.
   Air Force
   Assessment of land attack aircraft, fighters and armed helicopters requires assumptions to be made similar to those for ground forces. US aircraft figures are for those based in Europe and do not take account of possible reinforcements from the continental US; the Soviet estimates show aircraft deployed in the territories of the Pact allies, together with a possible reinforcement of air units from the Western MDS. The bomber figures given here are for all medium-range bombers, regardless of whether or not they might be reserved for nuclear delivery. The number of multi-role aircraft on both sides obviously complicates any listing by mission categories. Ground attack aircraft (FGA) often have at least a limited self-defence capability but function primarily in the former role. National terminologies generally separate the standard combatzone air-superiority fighter and the interceptor, usually making the distinction organizationally as well. The Soviet air organization also appears in the 'Deployment' section of the USSR's country entry. There are still a number of ambiguities about roles.
   Commonality and Technology
   The accompanying Table shows that the Warsaw Pact enjoys numerical advantage in virtually all categories of weapons shown, the notable exceptions being AA guns, most larger naval vessel types and most naval aircraft. What is not shown by these figures is a primary advantage enjoyed by the Warsaw Pact, namely that the weapons in service, and the tactical doctrines for their use, are generally common throughout the Pact; even so, because of differing rates of equipment modernization there is a considerable (even surprising) variety of equipment in service within the Pact. NATO suffers from doctrines by no means identical and from a very wide variety of everything from weapon systems to support vehicles, with consequent duplication of supply systems and some considerable difficulties of interoperability.
   The question of technological superiority is impossible to answer without the test of combat. In general, however, Soviet equipment is thought to be rugged, relatively immune to mishandling and fairly reliable. Crew comfort and safety standards are significantly lower than those demanded in the West. While these factors may not be detrimental to efficiency over the short term, under the stress of combat the accident rate could rise and efficiency decline rather severely.
   Logistics
   NATO's logistic system is based almost entirely on national supply lines, and the difficulties are compounded by lack of standardization between nations and by lack of central co-ordination. In these respects it is markedly inferior to that of the Warsaw Pact. Certain NATO countries, too, still lack sufficient spares and ammunition although determined attempts to remedy this situation ('sustainability') are being made. Some Pact nations may also suffer from shortages, but the fact that their equipment is generally standardized would enable them to restock more quickly. The Soviet logistic system, which uses a mix of rail, road and pipeline, has been greatly improved in recent years.
   Air Power
   Warsaw Pact doctrine has long envisaged the use of surface-to-surface missiles to deliver highexplosive, nuclear and chemical warheads against targets deep in enemy rear areas. Replacement systems are certainly more accurate and may be more reliable. In addition, the rising Soviet inventory of modern fighter-bombers poses an increasingly significant long-range threat. The Pact's defence against air attack combines a large number of interceptors with an impressive array of surface-to-air missiles and artillery. While advanced electronic countermeasures could probably go some way to nullifying these defences, NATO air forces nevertheless face an increasingly formidable task in maintaining close air support for NATO ground forces on the European battlefield. Since NATO depends on its air forces to counter the apparent numerical superiority in Pact ground force numbers, their ability to penetrate Pact air defences could be a critical factor. Of particular concern is that NATO has yet to adopt a common IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) system and could lose aircraft to friendly air defence fire for some years to come. However NATO probably still enjoys a narrowing margin of overall electronic superiority, and may enjoy somewhat greater flexibility in command and control in combat conditions.
   The Warsaw Pact continues to enjoy the benefits of standardized aircraft servicing and handling facilities. Although its aircraft generally cannot operate from unimproved runways, there are a very large number of modern airfields available to the Pact with hardened aircraft shelters. NATO, on the other hand, still suffers from too few airfields and too many types of aircraft, although considerable improvements have been made in interoperability, in preparing airfields to receive aircraft from outside the theatre (the co-located operating base (COB) concept) and in providing shelter and protection for aircraft and personnel.
   Summary
   The numerical balance, although generally in favour of the Warsaw Pact (particularly in equipment) appears to have stabilized over the past year. At the same time, however the West has largely lost the technological edge in conventional equipment which allowed NATO to believe that quality could substitute for numbers. Because of the presence in the equation of so many unknown and unknowable factors, one cannot necessarily conclude that NATO would suffer defeat in war, nor that the Warsaw Pact would see its advantage as being sufficient to risk an attack, but one can conclude that there is still sufficient danger in the trend to require remedies in the Western Alliance, particularly as manpower shortages become a problem by the end of the 1980s. One can also conclude that any significant raising of the nuclear threshold through NATO acquisition of markedly greater conventional capabilities would appear to be out of reach. The ratio of forces, while no worse, is certainly no better than before.
   Our conclusion remains that the conventional overall balance is still such as to make general military aggression a highly risky undertaking for either side. Though possession of the initiative in war will always permit an aggressor to achieve a local advantage in numbers sufficient to allow him to believe that he might achieve limited tactical successes in some areas, there would still appear to be insufficient overall strength on either side to guarantee victory. The consequences for an attacker would still be quite unpredictable, and the risks, particularly of nuclear escalation, incalculable.
  

Неядерный баланс Восток-Запад в Европе

   Оценка обычного баланса между НАТО и Варшавским договором с использованием сравнений живой силы, боевых единиц или техники содержит довольно большой запас неопределенности. Существует ряд характеристик, которые практически невозможно оценить: качество подразделений или техники, географические преимущества, доктрина, военная техника, развертывание, подготовка, материально-техническое обеспечение, боевой дух, руководство, тактическая инициатива, рельеф местности, погода, политическая воля и сплоченность альянса. В любом случае такие сопоставления должны проводиться в более широком политическом и стратегическом контексте, включая ядерный баланс, развертывание сил во всем мире, потенциал укрепления обеих сторон и, что наиболее важно, относительную мощь соответствующих военно-морских сил и тактических сил дальнего радиуса действия и военно-воздушных сил поддержки.
   Невозможно предсказать форму и масштабы любых военных действий, их продолжительность, управление ими или их результаты. Недавние локальные конфликты показали, что расходы материальных средств, как правило, намного превышают даже самые высокие предыдущие оценки. Влияние этого фактора на способность вести боевые действия, на материально-техническое обеспечение театра военных действий или на национальную инфраструктуру оценить невозможно. Все эти факторы оказывают влияние на использование сил в Европе, на их усиление и на ресурсы, необходимые для их предоставления.
   Прямые сравнения между предметами военной техники также затруднены. Можно сравнить, например, количество танков каждой из сторон, но танки в соответствующих альянсах явно не эквивалентны с точки зрения боеспособности. Некоторые из них старые и немодернизированные, другие современные и совершенные. Первые не могут двигаться быстро, использовать преимущества местности, стрелять с высоким шансом на попадание с первого выстрела, хорошо сопротивляться огню или хорошо общаться друг с другом. Кроме того, хотя танк по-прежнему высоко ценится как, возможно, одно из лучших противотанковых средств, существуют и другие весьма эффективные средства уничтожения танков, такие, как вооруженные вертолеты, современные штурмовики, установленные на транспортных средствах управляемые противотанковые вооружения и мины. Короче говоря, есть много статических и динамических факторов, которые необходимо учитывать, чтобы провести истинное сравнение сил.
   Принимая эти соображения, таким образом, вопрос численного равновесия рассматриваются в таблице, сопровождающей это сочинение, используя ряд статических показателей в рубриках живой силы, подразделений (включая выделенные эквиваленты), наземных сил, вооружения, морских частей, морских самолетов, и наземных штурмовиков и истребителей. Итоговые данные приводятся для НАТО в Центральной и Северной Европе (вместе взятых) и Южной Европе, для сил США в Европе или в прилегающих к Европе морских районах и, по категориям, для НАТО в целом. Для сравнения с этими итогами даны эквиваленты для стран Варшавского договора, для сил Советского Союза, противостоящих НАТО, и итоги для каждой категории.
   Определение зоны боевых действий
   Одна из центральных проблем для анализа заключается в том, следует ли сравнивать силы на очень высоком уровне (т. е. общие итоги Альянсов) или попытаться определить более реалистичные взаимодействия (т. е. фронты). Следует признать, что довольно крупные элементы сил обеих сторон не обязательно с самого начала направляются в конкретные зоны боевых действий. Существует значительная гибкость, особенно советских резервных сил, изменяемых по желанию. Северный и Центральноевропейский секторы показаны здесь как единое целое, но это неизбежно неполное понятие. Норвежские сухопутные войска, например, развернули основной элемент своих активных полевых сил для защиты северных подступов к стране, против которых советские войска в Северном Ленинградском военном округе представляют существенную потенциальную угрозу (и имеют планы усиления Крайнего Севера в условиях войны). Норвежский военно-морской флот должен назначить свои более крупные суда для поддержки Атлантического прибрежного фланга сил в Северной Норвегии, но Советский Балтийский флот представляет угрозу для Южной Норвегии, заставляя флот также охранять этот район. Норвежские ВВС должны быть готовы поддержать оба сектора. Западногерманская провинция Шлезвиг-Гольштейн, хотя и является частью Северного командования НАТО, должна ожидать нападения как со стороны Восточной Германии, так и с моря.
   Командующий южным флангом НАТО должен быть готов защищать три широко разделенных фронта, каждый со своими специфическими тактическими и снабженческими потребностями. Италия должна противостоять любой угрозе пакта со стороны Центральной Европы. Греция и Турция должны совместно защищать Фракию и Эгейское море и их воздушное пространство, в то время как Турция также должна защищать свою восточную границу на Кавказе.
   Личный состав
   Приведено общее количество военных по всем странам. Тем не менее, многие из тех, кто находится в Вооруженных силах сверхдержав, вполне могут быть задействованы за пределами зоны НАТО. Итоговые силы для борьбы и фактически расположенные в Европе, включают, НАТО, французские и канадские войска в Германии, но не включают испанцев. Для СССР, те, что на Кольском полуострове против Норвегии, а те, которые в Закавказском ВО против Турции. В случае возникновения боевых действий или угрозы их возникновения зоны боевых действий могут быть расширены. Это можно было бы сделать либо путем переброски постоянных сил в Европу, либо путем мобилизации резервов, либо для ведения боевых действий, либо для переброски в Европу этих внешних держав. Опять же, не все общие резервы в этих государствах будут доступны для развертывания на европейском театре действий или могут быть в обязательном порядке мобилизованы и своевременно перемещены, с тем чтобы повлиять на исход военных действий.
   Мобилизация
   Темпы мобилизации стран будут зависеть от принятой системы, процедур и компетентности персонала, расстояний и имеющихся транспортных средств. Темпы мобилизации государств будут зависеть от полученного предупреждения, политической воли, способности принимать решения и претворять их в жизнь, а также от того, насколько действия противника препятствуют мобилизации. Страны Варшавского договора сохранили резервы, основанные на призывниках, прошедших обязательную службу. Те, кто был уволен менее пяти лет назад, вероятно, будут доступны для немедленного использования; по прошествии более пяти лет мужчины должны будут пройти переподготовку.
   Советский Союз, в частности, использует организацию военного округа для призыва и расстановки резервистов в каркасные формирования (дивизии "категория 2" и "категория 3") для ведения войны.
   Связи между центральным СССР и границами более чем достаточны для быстрого продвижения к потенциальным фронтам, пока они остаются свободными от нападения. Ограничения советских внутренних коммуникаций могут затруднить переход дивизий из одной части СССР в другую.
   В Европе многие страны могут мобилизоваться. В случае Великобритании переброска на материковую часть Европы является менее легким и может быть воспрещено. Те страны, которые должны перебросить подкрепления через Атлантику, явно сталкиваются с возможностью серьезного прерывания. Наконец, Соединенные Штаты, Великобритания и Канада не имеют резерва подготовленных кадров, сопоставимого с резервом, имеющимся в распоряжении других стран, имеющих всеобщий призыв.
   Формирования
   Нормальным мерилом сравнения сил является дивизия, определяемая как наименьшая сила, способная к самостоятельным боевым действиям, - как правило, все вооруженные силы с собственной материально-технической поддержкой. Во всех случаях термин "Tank" включает танковые и бронетанковые дивизии; "Mech" включает механизированные, мотострелковые и мотострелковые дивизии; "Other" включает воздушно-десантные, воздушно-десантные, штурмовые, горные, десантные и легкие пехотные дивизии. Не все национальные армии действуют полевыми дивизионными организациями в мирное время. Для упрощения представления три бригады (девять батальонов бронетанковый, пехотный или смешанный) рассматриваются в качестве дивизионного эквивалента , за исключением вспомогательных подразделений, включая артиллерию, полевых инженеров и подразделения материально-технического обеспечения и т.д. Первая категория в таблице показывает существующие в Европе и укомплектованные в мирное время подразделения. Для НАТО они включают, помимо сил континентальных государств, прилегающих к фронтам НАТО, британская BAOR, канадские войска, третий корпус Франции и армию США в Европе. Для Советского Союза включены формирования на Кольском полуострове и около половины в Закавказье, в дополнение к тем, которые уже находятся в Восточной Европе.
   Дивизии, предназначенные для усиления до мобилизации, перечислены отдельно. Так же как и те потенциальные дивизии, которые должны быть мобилизованы из резервов и направлены в Европу в качестве последующих сил. В случае Советского Союза к формациям для первоначального усиления относятся дивизии Западного и Южного театров Советского Союза, две дивизии 1-й категории в Белоруссии и дивизии 2-й категории в Ленинградском, Прибалтийском, Белорусском, Закарпатском и Северо-Кавказском округах. Вторичные подкрепление будет включать дивизий 3 категории и эти кадровые или "теневые" формирования военных округов - эквивалент существующей организации плюс формирования в глубинных округах, Киевском и Одесском, и, скорее всего, кадровые 'теневые' формирования. В эти цифры не включены подразделения территориальной обороны/ополчения, и не было предпринято попыток рассчитать увеличение сил, обеспечиваемое подразделениями вспомогательного оружия звеньев корпуса/армия, армии или группы армий/фронта. В предыдущие годы произошли некоторые существенные изменения в категориях готовности и развертывания дивизий, что отчасти объясняется реорганизацией и отчасти различными предположениями о состоянии готовности. Эти предположения, по необходимости произвольные.
   Вооружение
   Запасы вооружения можно разбить на категории. Усложняющие факторы, что общий фонд вооружения не обязательно соответствует сумме в дивизионных учреждениях (есть вооружение резервов, не дивизионных частей и складов, которые добавлены), и не все оборудование будет на театре после начала военных действий. Ожидается, что советские формирования, двигающиеся из западной части СССР, возьмут свои полные запасы. Некоторые американские формирования, с другой стороны, планируют вооружиться из запасов в Европе. По этим причинам в таблицу для каждой стороны включены только общие запасы и запасы укрепляющих формирований Варшавского договора.
   Морские силы
   В случае НАТО мы показываем количество кораблей, предположительно находящихся в Восточной Атлантике, Ла-манше, Северном море и Средиземном море. Для Варшавского договора, мы включаем советские Северный, Балтийский и Черноморский флоты, вместе с несоветскими судами договора в Балтийском и Черном морях. Советские военно-морские силы в Средиземном море привлекаются из Черноморского флота или, в случае подводных лодок, из Северного флота. Как и в случае с наземным вооружением, существуют большие различия между категориями как в плане возможностей, так и в плане возраста. Классификация по типу военно-морского судна или морского самолета соответствует номенклатуре, используемой в записях страны. Эти цифры включают как наземные, так и палубные самолеты с четкой морской ролью в морских районах.
   Воздушные силы
   Оценка наземных ударных самолетов, истребителей и вооруженных вертолетов требует предположений, аналогичных тем, которые делаются для наземных сил. Цифры для американских самолетов представляют собой базирующиеся в Европе и не учитывают возможные подкрепления из континентальной части США; советские оценки показывают самолеты, развернутые на территориях союзников по пакту, вместе с возможным усилением авиационных подразделений из западных округов. Число бомбардировщиков приведенный здесь для всех средних бомбардировщиков, независимо от того, могут ли они быть зарезервированы для доставки ядерного оружия. Количество многоцелевых самолетов с обеих сторон, включение в перечень любых миссий. Штурмовики часто обладают по меньшей мере ограниченным потенциалом самообороны, но функционируют главным образом в прежнем качестве. Национальные терминологии различают истребитель превосходства в воздухе и перехватчик, но как правило, различия в организационном плане.
   Общность и технология
   Прилагаемая таблица показывает, что Варшавский договор обладает численным преимуществом практически во всех категориях оружия, за исключением большинства типов морских судов и морских самолетов. Однако эти цифры не свидетельствуют о том, что Варшавский договор обладает главным преимуществом , а именно о том, что оружие, находящееся на вооружении, и тактические доктрины его применения являются общими для всего пакта. НАТО страдает от доктрин, отнюдь не идентичных в разных странах, и от широкого спектра всего, от систем вооружения до вспомогательных транспортных средств, с последующим дублированием систем снабжения и некоторыми значительными трудностями оперативной совместимости. На вопрос о технологическом превосходстве невозможно ответить без испытания боем.
   В целом, однако, советское оборудование считается прочным, относительно невосприимчивым к неправильному обращению и достаточно надежным. Уровень комфорта и безопасности экипажа значительно ниже, чем на Западе. Хотя в краткосрочной перспективе эти факторы могут и не сказываться на эффективности, в условиях боевых действий аварийность может возрасти, а эффективность значительно снизиться.
   Логистика
   Материально-техническая система НАТО почти полностью основана на национальных линиях снабжения, и трудности усугубляются отсутствием стандартизации между странами и Центральной координации. В этом отношении они заметно уступают Варшавскому договору. Некоторые страны НАТО также по-прежнему испытывают нехватку запасных частей и боеприпасов, хотя в последнее время предпринимаются попытки исправить эту ситуацию. Некоторые страны ОВД также могут испытывать нехватку, но тот факт, что их оборудование стандартизировано, позволит им быстрее пополнять запасы. Советская логистическая система, в которой используется сочетание железнодорожного, автомобильного и трубопроводного транспорта, в последние годы значительно улучшилась.
   Авиация
   Доктрина Варшавского договора уже давно предусматривает использование ракет класса "земля-земля" для доставки обычных, ядерных и химических боеголовок к целям, расположенных глубоко в тылу противника. Кроме того, растущая советская номенклатура современных истребителей-бомбардировщиков представляет собой все более серьезную угрозу дальнего радиуса действия. Защита ОВД от воздушного нападения сочетает в себе большое число перехватчиков с впечатляющим набором ракет класса "земля-воздух" и артиллерии. Хотя новейшие электронные контрмеры, вероятно, могли бы каким-то образом свести на нет эту оборону, военно-воздушные силы НАТО, тем не менее, сталкиваются со все более сложной задачей поддержания тесной воздушной поддержки наземных сил НАТО на европейском поле боя. Поскольку НАТО зависит от своих военно-воздушных сил в борьбе с очевидным численным превосходством в численности сухопутных сил ОВД, их способность проникать через ПВО пакта может быть критическим фактором. Особую озабоченность вызывает то, что НАТО еще не приняла общую систему идентификации свой-чужой и может терять самолеты от дружественного огня ПВО.
   Тем не менее, они, вероятно, все еще пользуются сужающимся пределом общего электронного превосходства и могут обладать несколько большей гибкостью в командовании и управлении в боевых условиях.
   Варшавский договор по-прежнему пользуется преимуществами стандартизированного обслуживания самолетов. Хотя его самолеты, как правило, не могут работать с неосвоенных взлетно-посадочных полос, существует очень большое количество современных аэродромов с защищенными укрытиями. С другой стороны, НАТО по-прежнему страдает от слишком малого числа аэродромов и слишком большого числа типов самолетов, хотя в плане оперативной совместимости и укрепления аэродромов были достигнуты значительные улучшения, были достигнуты значительные улучшения в плане оперативной совместимости, подготовки аэродромов к приему самолетов за пределами театра действий (концепция совместной оперативной базы (ССБ)) и укрепления ее аэродромов.
   Резюме
   Численный баланс - особенно в области вооружения - продолжает постепенно смещаться в пользу Востока. В то же время Запад в значительной степени утратил технологическое превосходство в обычном вооружении, что раньше позволяло НАТО верить, что качество может заменить количество. Из-за наличия в уравнении такого множества неизвестных и непознаваемых факторов, не обязательно заключать, ни что НАТО будет терпеть поражение в войне, ни в том, что Варшавский договор бы посчитает свое преимущество достаточным, чтобы рискнуть напасть, но можно сделать вывод, что есть еще достаточно серьезная угроза в тренде требовать средства защиты в западном альянсе, в частности, дефицит личного становится проблемой в конце 1980-х годов.
   Наш вывод такой, что обычный общий баланс по-прежнему, что делает общую военную агрессию весьма рискованным мероприятием. Хотя тактические передислокации, безусловно, могут обеспечить локальное преимущество в количестве, достаточном для того, чтобы позволить нападающему полагать, что он может достичь ограниченных тактических успехов в некоторых районах, по-прежнему будет недостаточно общих сил с обеих сторон, чтобы гарантировать победу. Последствия для нападающего по-прежнему были бы несколько непредсказуемыми, а риски - особенно ядерной эскалации - неисчислимы.

Airliners: Potential for Airlift Augmentation

   This table lists civil aircraft types held by NATO countries (including France) and Warsaw Pact countries, which could be used to augment those countries' military airlift capability. The criteria used are: for cargo aircraft, a maximum payload of 15 tonnes or more; for passenger aircraft, a maximum payload of some 10 tonnes or more, including accommodation for at least 84 passengers (equivalent to 50 troops with personal equipment and platoon weapons). For US aircraft, we have also used a minimum range criterion of 4,500 km (necessary for non-stop trans-oceanic flights).
  

Авиалайнеры: потенциал для увеличения воздушных перевозок

   В этой таблице перечислены типы гражданских самолетов, находящихся в распоряжении стран НАТО (включая Францию) и стран Варшавского договора, которые могут быть использованы для увеличения военного потенциала этих стран в области воздушных перевозок. Критериев используются: для грузовых воздушных судов, максимальной грузоподъемностью 15 тонн или более; для пассажирских самолетов, максимальную полезную нагрузку в 10 тонн или более, включая размещение не менее 84 пассажиров (эквивалентно 50 военнослужащих средствами индивидуальной и взвод оружия). Для американских самолетов мы также использовали критерий минимальной дальности полета 4500 км (необходимый для беспосадочных трансокеанских полетов).

Economic Trends and Defence Expenditure

   After the serious world-wide recession in 1982, when real GNP growth declined to the lowest point in a decade, 1983 and 1984 showed substantial improvement. In 1982 the industrial countries showed a GDP decline of -0.2%, and the developing world a low 1.6% growth, but the industrial world achieved 4.9% growth and the developing countries 3.7% in 1984. Of the developing world, Asia led with 6.4%, while the others (Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa) registered growth rates between 2.2% and 2.5%. Most of the OAPEC states - as well as some other developing world oil producers - continued to lose revenues as oil exports decreased, oil prices fell, and the US dollar rose to an unprecedented level.
   Despite a moderate recovery, serious problems remained unresolved: high unemployment in most western industrial states and in many developing countries; increasingly higher fiscal deficits, especially in the oil producing states;
Inflationary pressures and hyper-inflation in Latin America and Israel. The debt burden continues to be a financial and also a political nightmare, not only for many third-world countries but also for some industrial states (e.g., Belgium and Israel).
   Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union have been able to reduce their combined gross convertible currency debt, currently estimated at $80 billion, from its 1982 level of $92 billion. Poland, although able to reduce her debt structure somewhat, will continue to face problems for some time. Hungary is beginning to experience debt problems. NMP growth continued to increase, however, although not necessarily meeting the growth target. In 1984 Romania led with NMP growth of 7.7%, while the Soviet Union, Hungary and Czechoslovakia trailed with some 3%; East Germany, Poland and Bulgaria showed increases of 5.5%, 5.0% and 4.6%.
   Defence Spending and the Arms Trade
   The heavy debt burden and deficit financing in most African and Latin American countries is reflected in a decrease in arms purchases and new orders during 1983 and 1984. In some countries, however, expenditure has gone up as a result of either regional security problems - Central America, the Iran-Iraq conflict (and thus the adjacent Gulf states) - or the increase in tension in East-West relations. In some cases a reduction in defence outlays simply reflects inability to pay the high cost of new technology, and the states affected are either deferring replacement purchases or seeking alternative sources of supply.
   While a reduction of defence outlays does not imply a contraction of the respective military establishments, it does mean a shift in priorities. Until the mid-1970s the principal suppliers were industrial states - western or eastern. Since then arms producers of intermediate technology have appeared - Brazil, Pakistan, Israel and Egypt among others - who offer high-quality items at lower financial cost and with fewer political strings than either Western or Eastern bloc suppliers. Another principal reason is that many countries (e.g., Iraq and Brazil) are now engaging in countertrade and barter agreements which do not appear in the defence budget accounts. If recent reports are to be believed, even Saudi Arabia and Britain have entered similar arrangements.
   The decrease in arms purchases is also due to the fact that in almost all areas of the world arms imports accelerated after 1978 and reached their peak in 1981/2; with the completion of these purchase programmes, import requirements have fallen substantially. The major exceptions to this pattern include the Gulf states (which, despite falling revenues, have had to continue to build up their defence capabilities - especially in the sector of C3I), Singapore and Malaysia (which are rapidly expanding their air and naval forces) and Argentina (which had to replace her losses after the Falklands conflict). According to some estimates, the Gulf states have continued to import defence equipment worth in the region of $22-25 billion in 1984 (compared with figures for Africa of about $5 billion, for Latin America of about $3.0 billion, for the Far East of about $3.5 billion, and for South Asia of some $1.5 billion). Another priority shift has been towards the area of internal security, as reflected by substantial increases in spending on that sector in numerous countries.
   The United States and NATO
   After a decline in real defence spending in the post-Vietnam period, both the Carter Administration and subsequently (and especially) the Reagan Administration embarked on defence spending increases amounting to an average of about 9% per annum since 1980 (for FY 1985 an increase of 13% in real terms was planned, but Congress reduced it to 5% growth for FY 1986). Congress has shown that it is unwilling to support the Administration unreservedly, and a levelling off of the rate of increase can be anticipated. However, the money committed forward for long-lead items (Total Obligational Authority, or TOA - see p. 4) is considerable, and it seems fairly certain that the US budget will not decline in real terms. European economic and social problems and rising public resistance to defence expenditure increases - in view of cutbacks elsewhere (especially in the Social Security sector) - will make it difficult for governments, whatever their political complexion, to persuade their legislatures to vote more funds (Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and Portugal are particular examples of this problem). Even West Germany will not be able to meet the 3% annual increase in real terms which was agreed by NATO Ministers in 1978. She is committed only to a nominal 3.8% per annum increase over the next few years, and, if Inflation approaches that figure, real growth will be close to zero. The British government is committed to a 3% annual real increase 'in addition to the Falkland costs' on average until 1986, but thereafter little or no real growth is foreseen. France has launched a five-year defence plan which totals fr 830,000 million, but this will represent less than 2.1% real annual growth, and in any case almost a third of the funding is allocated to the nuclear programme. The rest of NATO Europe has fallen short of the increase agreed in 1978, and will certainly fall short of the 1983-8 NATO force goals agreed in 1982.
   However, some countries, and some individual military services, are- expected to achieve substantial real increases. The Italian and Spanish Navies, for example, are expanding rapidly. All the Turkish Armed Forces are expected to be modernized quite rapidly, by virtue of substantial military aid from the US and West Germany. In almost all NATO member states C3I is given a high priority. Also, the NATO infrastructure fund has been increased from $4.72 billion (1980-84) to $7.85 billion (1985-90), again with a heavy emphasis on development of C3I.
   The continuing debate between the US and NATO Europe over 'burden-sharing' (especially in the context of the Air Land Battle concept and SDI) is further complicated not only by the present economic situation (and the different economic problems within the Alliance) but also by different defence strategy perceptions, as well as national political and economic priorities. But in terms of defence expenditure allocation (burden-sharing) within the Alliance, the picture is not as one-sided as elements within US Administration often argue. In 1982, NATO Europe spent some $94.9 billion. By its own definition the United States allocated approximately $108 billion, out of a total expenditure of $196.4 billion, to the defence of Europe. This relatively small differential has of course increased during the last three years, and the unusual strength of the dollar during 1984 and 1985 further affected this trend.
   Warsaw Pact
   While it is difficult to calculate the real cost of non-Soviet Warsaw Pact defence expenditure, the availability of Romanian, Hungarian and Polish consumer price indices makes it possible broadly to estimate real defence expenditure trends. On the basis of this data it appears that between 1975 and 1982 Warsaw Pact defence expenditure increased by an average of 3.6% per annum in 1975 prices. Poland appears to have undertaken a major increase in military outlays over the two years from 1982 to 1984 (some 36%, based on 1979 prices), while East Germany has sustained an average increase of 6-7% per annum (1975 prices). Romania, her defence budget frozen at the 1982 level, showed a decrease of about 1.1%, in 1983, and only a marginal increase in 1984.
   The Middle East
   The continuing Gulf War (the cost of which can only be estimated), the continuing conflict in north-west Africa and the crisis between Libya and neighbouring countries, have forced most states in this region to continue to import arms in substantial quantities, despite falling oil revenues.
   The Middle Eastern and North African countries spent about $82.0 billion on the military sector in 1984, an increase of approximately of $10 billion over 1983. Of this, 35% was spent by the Gulf Co-operation Council (a drop of 4% over 1983); 18% by Egypt, Israel, Syria and the Lebanon; and 42% by Iran and Iraq.
   The present political situation in the Gulf states has caused them to raise their internal security budgets considerably. The construction of a sophisticated air defence system and the development of a massive C3I system at an estimated cost of $15-16 billion, and the development of similar systems in other Gulf states, have forced them to maintain high defence outlays. The GCC countries also give Iraq financial support, hitherto estimated at $35-40 billion, but possibly as high as $45 billion, since 1980. During 1984, however", this support seems to have tapered off. It is only this aid, plus large credits from France (estimated at $6-8 billion), the USSR (no estimate possible) and Brazil (which supplies arms via substantial countertrade and barter agreements) that enables Iraq to continue the war.
   The Palestinian conflict consumed at least $13 billion in 1983, but this appears to have been reduced during 1984. Israel's inflation (approaching 1,000% in mid-1985) makes it impossible to calculate real defence costs, nor is it possible to estimate the real value of Soviet military aid to Syria. US military assistance to Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon totalled over $3.2 billion (48% of total US military aid).
   Sub-Saharan Africa
   There appears to have been no real increase in defence outlays in the continent since 1981, although reliable information for many countries is difficult to obtain. Available evidence suggests that the defence expenditures for the continent totalled about $7.5 billion, compared with $8.9 billion in 1983.
   In most smaller countries the largest shares of the total security budgets (possibly as high as 40%) are allocated to internal security, paramilitary and border security forces. Moreover, in some countries the internal security budgets appear to be actually higher than those for the military sector. The greatest military expenditures are those of Nigeria and South Africa (although in the former case the most reliable statistics are available only up to 1981), and in 1984 these two accounted for about 40% of all Sub-Saharan defence expenditure. Nigeria's defence budget increased considerably in 1982, mostly due to the purchase of 18 Jaguar aircraft and the substantial and continuing expansion of the military infrastructure. South Africa increased her defence budget by 7% for 1984 (and 8.1% for 1985) but much of the cost for internal security and other security-related activities (as well as for research and development) is hidden in other departmental budgets. Ethiopia's defence outlays appear to be the third highest in Sub-Saharan Africa, but much, if not all, of her equipment costs are regarded as being subsidized by the Soviet Union. Real defence outlays are therefore considerably smaller. For Mozambique and Angola, only estimates are available.
   Asia
   The Asian countries' defence outlays continued to grow. During 1983 defence expenditure growth averaged 7.1% for the region, while in 1984 it reached 8%, raising outlays from $43.9 billion in 1983 to $46.8 billion in nominal terms. (The expenditures of Vietnam, Kampuchea and Laos, for which no data is available, are excluded here.) In real terms (i.e. 1980 prices) only the Philippines and Malaysia reduced their outlays, the former by a drastic 35%. Regional security problems in South Asia, on the ThaiKampuchean and Chinese-Vietnamese borders continue. Pakistan is to receive $1.6 billion in military aid over the next few years; US military aid to Thailand has doubled during the past three years and is scheduled to increase further; India has placed large military orders with the USSR and elsewhere; and Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore continue to modernize their naval and air forces.
   Japan continues to be under US pressure to increase her defence outlay above 1% of GNP (it is at present 0.999%). During the summer of 1985 several cabinet ministers appear to have agreed to remove the 1% ceiling, and the Japanese Defense Agency (JDA) was offered a 7% increase (in contrast to a general budget increase of 1.47%). The JDA is preparing a new five-year defence plan; emphasis will be on the defence of the strategic sea ' lanes and air space.
   Latin America
   Calculating military expenditures for many Latin American countries is particularly difficult. Not only does hyper-inflation in some cases make it virtually impossible to determine the figures in local currency, but frequent devaluations also make dollar comparisons almost meaningless.
   Calculated in 1980 prices, Latin American defence spending reached its peak during 1982/3, registering an increase of 60% since 1980. Since then, regional defence outlays appear to have dropped by about 15%. Individual states, however, and particularly Central American states, have continued to increase their expenditures. Argentina has had to replace her losses caused by the Falkland crises at an estimated cost of over $2 billion (the new government has, however, drastically reduced defence expenditure, from a high of 30-40% of the total budget in 1982 to 13%). Brazil has expanded her military manpower by 10%; however, she is to a great extent self-sufficient for her equipment requirements. Peru, one of the poorest Latin American states, has ordered 26 Mirage 2000 at an estimated cost of some $800-900 million, despite severe economic problems.
   Central American states have increased their defence outlays substantially, and probably even more than present information indicates. Moreover, US military assistance to Central America has doubled between 1983 and 1984, from about $150 million to $310 million (excluding assistance to the guerilla forces known as 'Contras' operating against Nicaragua)
  

Экономические тенденции и расходы на оборону

   После серьезного мирового спада в 1982 году, когда реальный рост ВНП снизился до самого низкого уровня за десятилетие, 1983 и 1984 годы показали существенное улучшение. В 1982 году в промышленно развитых странах показатель ВВП упал на -0.2%, а в развивающихся странах с низким ростом на 1,6%, а в промышленности достигнут рост на 4,9% и развивающихся стран 3.7% в 1984 году. Из развивающихся стран Азия лидировала с 6,4%, в то время как другие (Латинская Америка, Ближний Восток и Африка) зарегистрировали темпы роста от 2,2% до 2,5%. Большинство государств-членов ОАПЕК , а также некоторые другие развивающиеся мировые производители нефти продолжали терять доходы, поскольку экспорт нефти сократился, цены на нефть упали, а доллар США вырос до беспрецедентного уровня.
   Несмотря на умеренный подъем, серьезные проблемы остаются нерешенными: высокий уровень безработицы в большинстве западных промышленных государств и во многих развивающихся странах; все более высокий бюджетный дефицит, особенно в нефтедобывающих государствах;
   Инфляционное давление и гиперинфляция в Латинской Америке и Израиле. Долговое бремя по-прежнему является финансовым и политическим кошмаром не только для многих стран третьего мира, но и для некоторых промышленно развитых государств (например, Бельгии и Израиля).
   Восточная Европа и Советский Союз смогли сократить свой совокупный валовой конвертируемый валютный долг, который в настоящее время оценивается в 80 млрд. долл. США, с уровня 1982 года в 92 млрд. долл. Польша, хотя и в состоянии несколько сократить свою долговую структуру, еще некоторое время будет сталкиваться с проблемами. Венгрия начинает испытывать проблемы с задолженностью. Тем не менее, рост NMP продолжал расти, хотя и не обязательно соответствовал целевому показателю роста. В 1984 году Румыния лидировала с ростом NMP на 7,7%, в то время как Советский Союз, Венгрия и Чехословакия уступали примерно 3%; Восточная Германия, Польша и Болгария показали рост на 5,5%, 5,0% и 4,6%.
   Оборонные расходы и торговля оружием
   Тяжелое долговое бремя и дефицит финансирования в большинстве африканских и латиноамериканских стран находят свое отражение в сокращении закупок оружия и новых заказов в 1983 и 1984 годах. Однако в некоторых странах расходы возросли в результате либо региональных проблем безопасности - Центральной Америки, ирано-иракского конфликта (и, следовательно, соседних государств Персидского залива), либо роста напряженности в отношениях между Востоком и Западом. В некоторых случаях сокращение расходов на оборону просто отражает неспособность оплатить высокую стоимость новой технологии, и затронутые государства либо откладывают закупки на замену, либо ищут альтернативные источники поставок.
   Хотя сокращение расходов на оборону не означает сокращения соответствующих военных учреждений, оно означает изменение приоритетов. До середины 1970-х годов основными поставщиками были промышленные государства - западные или восточные. С тех пор появились производители оружия промежуточной технологии - в частности, Бразилия, Пакистан, Израиль и Египет, - которые предлагают высококачественные товары по более низкой финансовой стоимости и с меньшими политическими условиями, чем поставщики западного или Восточного блока. Еще одна основная причина заключается в том, что многие страны (например, Ирак и Бразилия) в настоящее время заключают соглашения о встречной торговле и бартере, которые не фигурируют в счетах оборонного бюджета. Если верить последним сообщениям, даже Саудовская Аравия и Великобритания заключили аналогичные соглашения.
   Сокращение закупок оружия объясняется также тем, что почти во всех районах мира импорт оружия ускорился после 1978 года и достиг своего пика в 1981/2 годах; по завершении этих программ закупок потребности в импорте существенно сократились. Основные исключения из этой схемы включают государства Персидского залива (которые, несмотря на снижение доходов, вынуждены были продолжать наращивать свой оборонный потенциал - особенно в секторе C3I), Сингапур и Малайзия (которые быстро расширяют свои военно-воздушные и военно-морские силы) и Аргентина (которой пришлось возместить свои потери после Фолклендского конфликта). По некоторым оценкам, страны Персидского Залива продолжают экспорт военной техники на сумму в $22-25 млрд. В 1984 году (по сравнению с показателями за Африку около $5 млрд, в Латинской Америке около $3,0 млрд, Дальнего Востока около $3,5 млрд, а Южной Азии около $1,5 млрд). Еще один приоритет-переход к области внутренней безопасности, о чем свидетельствует существенное увеличение расходов на этот сектор во многих странах.
   Соединенные Штаты и НАТО
   После снижения реальных расходов на оборону в пост-вьетнамский период, при администрации Картера и впоследствии (и особенно) администрация Рейгана, оборонные расходы увеличиваются на сумму в среднем около 9% годовых, начиная с 1980 года (по итогам 1985 увеличившись на 13% в реальном выражении было запланировано, но Конгресс их снизил до 5% роста по итогам 1986). Конгресс показал, что он не желает безоговорочно поддерживать администрацию, и можно ожидать выравнивания темпов роста. Однако деньги, выделенные вперед по долгосрочным статьям (общий объем обязательств, или TOA - см. 4) является значительным, и кажется довольно уверенным, что бюджет США не сократится в реальном выражении. Европейские экономические и социальные проблемы и растущее сопротивление общественности увеличению расходов на оборону - ввиду сокращения расходов в других странах (особенно в секторе социального обеспечения) - затруднят правительствам, независимо от их политической комплекции, убедить свои законодательные органы голосовать за больший объем средств (Бельгия, Нидерланды, Дания и Португалия являются конкретными примерами этой проблемы). Даже Западная Германия не сможет удовлетворить 3%-ное ежегодное увеличение в реальном выражении, которое было согласовано министрами НАТО в 1978 году. Она привержена лишь номинальному увеличению на 3,8% в год в течение следующих нескольких лет, и, если инфляция приблизится к этому показателю, реальный рост будет близок к нулю. Британское правительство намерено ежегодно на 3% увеличивать реальные расходы "в дополнение к Фолклендским расходам" в среднем до 1986 года, но после этого практически никакого реального роста не предвидится. Франция приступила к осуществлению пятилетнего плана обороны на общую сумму 830 000 млн. франков, однако реальный ежегодный прирост составит менее 2,1%, и в любом случае почти треть средств выделяется на ядерную программу. Остальные страны НАТО в Европе пока не оправдывают повышение договоренное в 1978 году, и, безусловно, не достигнут в 1983-8 цели усиления НАТО как договорились в 1982 году.
   Однако ожидается, что некоторые страны и отдельные военные службы достигнут существенного реального роста. Итальянские и испанские военно-морские силы, например, быстро расширяются. Ожидается, что все турецкие вооруженные силы будут достаточно быстро модернизированы благодаря существенной военной помощи со стороны США и Западной Германии. Почти во всех государствах членах НАТО C3I является приоритетным. Кроме того, Фонд инфраструктуры НАТО был увеличен с 4,72 млрд. долл. США (1980-84 годы) до 7,85 млрд. долл. США (1985-90 годы), опять же с большим упором на развитие C3I.
   Продолжающиеся дебаты между США и НАТО в Европе по поводу "распределения бремени" (особенно в контексте концепции воздушно-наземной операции и СОИ) еще больше осложняются не только нынешней экономической ситуацией (и различными экономическими проблемами в Североатлантическом союзе), но и различными представлениями о стратегии обороны, а также национальными политическими и экономическими приоритетами. Но с точки зрения распределения оборонных расходов (распределения бремени) внутри Североатлантического союза картина не такая односторонняя, как часто утверждают элементы американской администрации. В 1982 году Европа потратила 94,9 миллиарда долларов. По собственному определению Соединенных Штатов выделено около 108 миллиардов долларов, из общей суммы расходов 196.4 млрд. долл., в защиту Европы. Эта относительно небольшая разница, конечно, увеличилась в течение последних трех лет, и необычная сила доллара в 1984 и 1985 годах еще больше повлияла на эту тенденцию.
   Варшавский договор
   Хотя трудно рассчитать реальную стоимость расходов на оборону в рамках несоветского Варшавского договора, наличие румынских, венгерских и польских индексов потребительских цен позволяет в целом оценить реальные тенденции в области оборонных расходов. На основе этих данных представляется, что в период с 1975 по 1982 год оборонные расходы Варшавского договора увеличивались в среднем на 3,6% в год в ценах 1975 года. Польша, как представляется, в течение двух лет с 1982 по 1984 год существенно увеличила военные расходы (примерно на 36% в ценах 1979 года), в то время как Восточная Германия в среднем увеличивала их на 6-7% в год (цены 1975 года). Румыния, ее оборонный бюджет, замороженный на уровне 1982 года, показал снижение примерно на 1,1% в 1983 году и лишь незначительное увеличение в 1984 году.
   Ближний Восток
   Продолжающаяся война в Персидском заливе (стоимость которой можно только оценить), продолжающийся конфликт в Северо-Западной Африке и кризис между Ливией и соседними странами вынудили большинство государств этого региона продолжать импортировать оружие в значительных количествах, несмотря на падение доходов от нефти.
   В 1984 году страны Ближнего Востока и Северной Африки израсходовали на военный сектор около 82,0 млрд. долл. США, т.е. увеличились на 10 млрд. долл. Из них 35% было израсходовано Советом сотрудничества стран Залива (снижение на 4% по сравнению с 1983 годом); 18% - Египтом, Израилем, Сирией и Ливаном; и 42% - Ираном и Ираком.
   Нынешняя политическая ситуация в государствах Персидского залива привела к значительному увеличению их бюджетов в области внутренней безопасности. Строительство сложной системы противовоздушной обороны и разработка массивной системы C3I, сметная стоимость которой составляет 15-16 млрд. долл. США, а также разработка аналогичных систем в других государствах залива вынудили их сохранять высокие расходы на оборону. Страны ССЗ также оказывают Ираку финансовую поддержку, которая до сих пор оценивалась в 35-40 млрд. долл. США, но, возможно, достигает 45 млрд. долл. США, начиная с 1980 года. Однако в 1984 году эта поддержка, похоже, уменьшилась. Только эта помощь, а также крупные кредиты Франции (оцениваемые в 6-8 миллиардов долларов), СССР (оценка невозможна) и Бразилии (которая поставляет оружие через значительные контртрейдерские и бартерные соглашения) позволяют Ираку продолжать войну.
   Палестинский конфликт, потреблял в 1983 году не менее 13 миллиардов долларов, но это, кажется, было сокращено в 1984 году. Инфляция в Израиле (приближающаяся к 1000% в середине 1985 года) делает невозможным подсчет реальных расходов на оборону, равно как и оценку реальной стоимости советской военной помощи Сирии. Военная помощь США Египту, Израилю, Иордании и Ливану составила более $3,2 млрд (48% от общего объема военной помощи США).
   Страны Африки к югу от Сахары
   Как представляется, с 1981 года на континенте не произошло реального увеличения расходов на оборону, хотя достоверную информацию для многих стран получить трудно. Имеющиеся данные свидетельствуют о том, что расходы на оборону континента составили около 7,5 млрд. долл. США по сравнению с 8,9 млрд. долл. США в 1983 году.
   В большинстве малых стран наибольшая доля от общего объема бюджетов в области безопасности (возможно, до 40%) приходится на внутреннюю безопасность, полувоенные формирования и пограничные силы безопасности. Кроме того, в некоторых странах бюджеты внутренней безопасности, как представляется, фактически выше, чем бюджеты военного сектора. Наибольшие военные расходы приходятся на Нигерию и Южную Африку (хотя в первом случае наиболее достоверные статистические данные имеются только до 1981 года), а в 1984 году на эти две страны приходилось около 40% всех оборонных расходов к югу от Сахары. Оборонный бюджет Нигерии значительно увеличился в 1982 году, в основном за счет приобретения 18 самолетов Jaguar и существенного и продолжающегося расширения военной инфраструктуры. Южная Африка увеличила свой оборонный бюджет на 7% в 1984 году (и на 8,1% в 1985 году), но большая часть расходов на внутреннюю безопасность и другие связанные с безопасностью мероприятия (а также на научные исследования и разработки) скрыта в бюджетах других департаментов. Расходы на оборону Эфиопии являются третьими по величине в Африке к югу от Сахары, но многое, если не все, в ее стоимости оборудования считаются дотационными от СССР. Поэтому реальные расходы на оборону значительно меньше. По Мозамбику и Анголе имеются лишь оценочные данные.
   Азия
   Оборонные расходы азиатских стран продолжали расти. В 1983 году рост расходов на оборону составил в среднем 7,1% для региона, в то время как в 1984 году он достиг 8%, увеличив расходы с $ 43,9 млрд в 1983 году до $46,8 млрд в номинальном выражении. (Расходы Вьетнама, Кампучии и Лаоса, по которым отсутствуют какие-либо данные, здесь исключены.) В реальном выражении (т.е. в ценах 1980 года) только Филиппины и Малайзия сократили свои расходы, причем первые резко сократились на 35%. Продолжаются проблемы региональной безопасности в Южной Азии, на границах Тай-кампучийской и Китайско-вьетнамской. В ближайшие несколько лет Пакистан получит военную помощь в размере 1,6 млрд. долл. США; за последние три года военная помощь США Таиланду удвоилась и должна увеличиться; Индия разместила крупные военные заказы в СССР и других странах; а Индонезия, Малайзия и Сингапур продолжают модернизировать свои военно-морские и воздушные силы.
   Япония продолжает находиться под давлением США, чтобы увеличить свои расходы на оборону выше 1% ВНП (в настоящее время 0,999%). В течение лета 1985 года несколько министров кабинета, по-видимому, согласились снять 1%-ный потолок, и японскому оборонному агентству (JDA) было предложено увеличение на 7% (в отличие от общего увеличения бюджета на 1,47%). JDA готовит новый пятилетний план обороны; акцент будет сделан на обороне стратегических морских путей и воздушного пространства.
   Латинская Америка
   Особенно трудно подсчитать военные расходы для многих латиноамериканских стран. Гиперинфляция в некоторых случаях не только делает практически невозможным определение показателей в местной валюте, но и частые девальвации также делают долларовое сравнение почти бессмысленным.
   Рассчитанные в ценах 1980 года, латиноамериканские расходы на оборону достигли своего пика в 1982/3, увеличившись на 60% с 1980 года. С тех пор расходы на региональную оборону сократились примерно на 15%. Однако отдельные государства, и особенно Центральноамериканские государства, продолжали увеличивать свои расходы. Аргентине пришлось возместить свои потери, вызванные Фолклендским кризисом, по оценкам, в размере более 2 млрд. долл. США (однако новое правительство резко сократило расходы на оборону с 30-40% от общего бюджета в 1982 году до 13%). Бразилия увеличила численность своего военного персонала на 10%; однако она в значительной степени самодостаточна для удовлетворения своих потребностей в вооружении. Перу, одно из беднейших латиноамериканских государств, заказало 26 Mirage-2000" на сумму примерно 800-900 млн. долл. США, несмотря на серьезные экономические проблемы.
   Центральноамериканские государства существенно увеличили свои расходы на оборону и, возможно, даже больше, чем свидетельствует нынешняя информация. Кроме того, военная помощь США Центральной Америке удвоилась в период 1983-1984 годов с примерно 150 млн. до 310 млн. долл. США (без учета помощи партизанским силам, известным как "контрас", действующим против Никарагуа)
