HOW TO USE THE MILITARY BALANCE

  
   The Military Balance is updated each year to provide a timely, quantitative assessment of the military forces and defence expenditures of over 140 countries as at 1 July 1986.
  
   General Arrangement
   There are three main Sections in The Military Balance. The first groups the national entries geographically: the USA, the USSR, Europe (the Warsaw Pact, NATO, Other European Countries), the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Australasia (China, Other Asian and Pacific Countries), and Latin America. Each geographical group of entries is preceded by a short Introduction describing the international pacts, agreements and military aid, significant changes in defence posture and economic positions of the countries concerned. Inclusion of a particular political entity, or of a military organization connected to it, in no way implies legal recognition for, or Institute support for, such entities. The Table of Contents, which precedes this Preface, gives the pages on which this detail can be found.
   The second Section contains summary tables providing comparative information on nuclear delivery systems world-wide and in the European region, world-wide defence expenditures, military manpower levels, and major identified arms procurement contracts. In a third, analytical, Section there is an essay and table analysing the conventional European theatre balance. For estimating the strategic nuclear balance according to the 'rules' established by the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaties, there is an essay and summary table. Economic studies include: an examination of changes in total government revenue and expenditure, and of the incidence of selected expenditure components, for eight countries over the period 1973-83; a graphic presentation of trends in the defence expenditure of the NATO countries, Japan and Sweden from 1972 to 1985; and a discussion of global defence spending and arms trade patterns. Maps, in polar stereographic projection, inserted with this edition give a new perspective on the strategic offensive and defensive force deployments of the two super-powers.
   National Entries
   Information on each country is given in a format as standard as the available information permits: economic data (GDP, growth, debt, inflation, defence budget and rate of exchange); population; military manpower, terms of service, Reserve strengths; the individual armed services; and para-military forces. In this edition footnotes will be found at the end of the national entry, rather than at the foot of the page.
   Economic and Demographic Data
   Economic data: We provide GDP figures but use GNP when necessary (GDP equals GNP minus net income from abroad). GDP figures are quoted at current market prices (at factor cost for East European and some other countries). Where available, published sources are used, but we do estimate figures when data is incomplete - and mark this with an V. GDP/ GNP growth rates cited are 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 International Monetary Fund (IMF) International Financial Statistics (IFS), has been used. For Eastern Europe, data from Economic Survey of Europe in 1985-86 (New York: UN, 1986) and the World Economic Outlook (Washington DC: IMF, 1986) is used. Estimates for the USSR's GNP are based on commercial banking estimates; East European GDP/GNP figures at factor cost are derived from GNP. China's GDP/GNP is given by the IMF.
   Defence Expenditure: We quote the latest defence expenditure or budget data available as at 1 July 1986. Where possible, capital equipment budgets/expenditures have been added to recurrent/administrative cost. Figures may vary from previous years, often because of changes made by the governments themselves; the latest figures should be the more accurate. There is often wide variation between sources, but our experience has shown that data from the central banks is generally the most comprehensive and reliable. Some countries include internal and border security force expenditures in their defence budgets.
   The NATO countries use a 'standard definition' of defence expenditure which includes all spending on regular military forces, military aid (including equipment and training) to other nations, military pensions, host government expenses for NATO tenant forces, NATO infrastructure and civilian staff costs; but excludes spending on para-military forces (e.g., gendarmerie). Estimates showing the variation of opinion on Soviet expenditure are cited in the introduction to that country's entry. Foreign military aid figures are based on published data or, in some cases, estimates.
   Currency Conversion Rates: National currency figures have been converted into US dollars to permit comparisons. The rate is averaged for the national financial year (for 1986-7 figures, the mid-1986 rate is used). Wherever possible, exchange rates are taken from IFS, though they may not be applicable to commercial transactions. High inflation rates in some countries and dollar distortions affect conversions. For the USSR no adequate conversion ratio of roubles to dollars is available. For those 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 DG: USGPO, 1974).
   Population: Total populations and the proportions of the population of military age are taken from World Population Projections 1984 (Washington DC: World Bank, 1984) and calculated trends.
   Military Data Military Formation Strengths: The table below gives the approximate average establishment strength of the major military formations in selected countries. The manning and structure of formations may vary.
  
    []
  
   Divisional strengths cover organic units only. Support and service units outside the divisional structure may be included separately where known. The forces of Soviet allies and other Soviet-supported countries have organizations 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 follow American military organization, while Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore broadly use British patterns.
   Manpower. The 'Regular' total comprises all personnel on full-time duty, including conscripts, long-term assignments from the Reserves and para-military elements when so required by the national authority. The terms of service are given for conscripts where known. The 'Reserve' component entry includes all personnel, whether in formed units or not, who are committed to serve as ancillary or mobilization forces. The mobilization strength would normally be the total of the full-time and reserve strengths. However, some national reserve service obligations last almost a lifetime; in these cases our strength estimates of militarily effective reservists are based on the terms of service and the number of conscripts completing their training each year, multiplied by five (on the assumption that, after five years, medical and combat training standards decline sharply).
   Organization: Expressed in broad terms, data is intended to give the composition of the major Army formations down to and including battalion level; minor sub-units are shown only in the forces of smaller nations. Naval and Air operational groupings are given where known. We do not generally show logistics units, ancillary Naval vessels (such as tugs), or Air Force ground support equipment.
   Para-military: Many countries maintain organizations whose training and equipment goes beyond those required for civil police duties. Their constitution and control suggests that they may be usable in support, or in lieu, of regular military forces. Precise definitions as to what are or are not para-military forces are not always possible, and some degree of latitude must be allowed. When internal opposition forces appear to pose a significant threat to internal security of a state, they are shown separately after national para-military forces.
   Equipment: Holdings (by type and number) are shown by function. These represent the operational inventories. Where known, equipment in store is listed separately. Occasionally it is possible to list equipment in the Reserves; elsewhere the total shown is held to include items assigned to the Reserves.
   For naval vessels, national designation is shown, even though hull size, primary armament and mission could argue a different category in another fleet. Where appropriate, major missile systems are listed.
   Air Force squadron aircraft strengths vary; attempts have been made to separate total holdings from reported establishment strengths. When major equipment obtained from one foreign source may be confused with that from others, we list the country of origin.
   On Order: Major equipment being purchased either domestically or abroad is listed with the Services concerned. (Navy, Naval Air and Marine orders are generally combined.) These orders may be outstanding over several years; deliveries, particularly of larger equipment, are often slow. Where deliveries are proceeding, the word 'some' warns that the 'total' inventory and items remaining 'on order' may vary. Arms purchases reported during the year ending 1 July 1986 are recorded in Table 3 in Section 2, with details of contract dates, prices and delivery dates added where known. Expendable stores, such as anti-tank missiles, may be shown in total when on order, but are not shown in inventory because of the difficulty in assessing rates of usage. We do not include small arms or their ammunition. In general, we do not include air defence artillery or automatic weapons with calibres of less than 14.5mm.
   Estimates: Forecasts are made only where clear evidence indicates that changes in organization or inventory are taking place or are about to.
   Equipment listings are intended to show what is operational: a total generally well below total inventory figures. In general, 'some' means 'up to' and 'about' means 'the total could be slightly higher than given'. For some categories a total figure is given. Where possible, quantities of individual items are also given. A standard system of punctuation has been developed for such entries to aid comprehension of detail. Equipment inventories are difficult to assess, and we welcome informed amendments.
   Abbreviations and Definitions
   Space and tight production schedules force us to use abbreviations. These are taken from NATO sources and are commonly used in military circles. An alphabetical list of them can be found on p. 12. Punctuation is not used, and the abbreviation may have both singular or plural meanings, e.g., 'elm' = 'element' or 'elements'. Mathematical symbols are used in three instances: '(-)' means part of a unit is detached; '(+)' means the unit is reinforced; '(' means that a vessel is under 100 tons displacement. Abbreviations of national names (e.g., 'Ch' = 'Chinese'), are used to denote equipment sources. With regard to financial abbreviations, the $ sign refers to US dollars except where otherwise stated; the term billion (bn) equals 1,000 million (m). 'Combat aircraft' are those normally equipped and configured to deliver ordnance (bomber (bbr), fighter-bomber, fighter-ground-attack (FGA), strike (nuclear), interceptor, fighter (ftr), counter-insurgency (COIN) and armed trainer), reconnaissance (recce) aircraft (including maritime), armed helicopters (including ASW) and those aircraft in operational conversion units (OCU) assumed to be available at short notice for operations. Some helicopters used for troop transport in battle areas may be armed, and some flexibility in identification must be accepted.
   WARNING
   The Military Balance is an assessment of the numerical strengths of the world's armed forces. It is in no way an assessment of their capabilities. It does not evaluate the quality of units or equipment, nor the impact of geography, doctrine, military technology, deployment, training, logistic support, morale, leadership, tactical or strategic initiative, terrain, weather, political will or support from alliance partners.
   Nor is the Institute in any position to evaluate and compare directly the performance of items of equipment. Those who wish to do so can use the data provided to construct their own balances of forces on a bilateral or regional basis. We have done this only for conventional forces in Europe (see pp. 226-7).
   We would warn that such balances are extremely sensitive to assumptions about what forces to include from what countries, whether such forces can be assembled and brought to bear in a possible conflict, and their combat effectiveness. These balances at best can only be an approximation. They cannot predict the results of engagements.
   The Military Balance provides the actual numbers of nuclear and conventional forces and weapons as we know them, not the number that would be assumed for verification purposes in arms-control agreements.
   What all this points to is that great care must be taken in assembling the data presented here for specific purposes. We provide an up-to-date and detailed catalogue of military forces in as many dimensions as possible and in a way which we hope will be generally useful. We make no judgments here about quality or effectiveness or the political purposes underlying the aggregation of power.
   The data presented each year in The Military Balance reflect judgments based on information available to the Director and staff of the Institute at the time the book is compiled. Information in subsequent volumes may differ from previous editions for a variety of reasons, principally as a result of substantive changes in national forces (e.g. procurement of new equipment, loss or retirement of old). In other cases entries may differ from year to year as a result of our re-assessment of the evidence supporting past entries. Inevitably, over the course of time we come to believe that some information presented in earlier versions is erroneous, or insufficiently supported by reliable evidence. Hence, it is not always possible to construct valid time series comparisons on the basis of succeeding editions of The Military Balance.
   Errata
   In an effort to provide the maximum accuracy, we are, beginning with this edition, providing a list of emendations to last year's entries, including corrections of typographical or editorial errors that materially affect the substance of the matter presented. These items (listed on p. 238) do not reflect changes as a result of substantive developments over the past year; rather, they are corrections of errors and revisions of estimates which we now believe to have been wrong.
   In addition, we wish to call to our readers' attention certain inconsistencies in last year's edition between material presented in Table 1 (Nuclear Capable Delivery Vehicles Worldwide, pp. G 158-65) and the matter in the two tables appended to the essay 'Estimating the Soviet-US Strategic Balance' (pp. 180-81). In several cases figures for the number of warheads associated with specific delivery systems or the yields of those warheads differ between the various tables, and in some instances there is a discrepancy between figures given in the tables and those in the accompanying footnotes. We regret any confusion this has created and have endeavored to clarify these inconsistencies in this year's presentation of Table 1. Given the difficulties associated with determining reliably the mix of warhead yields and loadings (which in any case vary depending on operational requirements) we have not included a table on equivalent megatonnage in this year's edition, although we have retained the table comparing estimated strategic nuclear warheads.
   Conclusion
   The Institute owes no allegiance whatever to any government, group of governments, or any political or any other organization. Our assessments are our own, based on the material available to us from a wide variety of sources. The co-operation of nearly all governments has been sought and, in many cases, received. Not all countries have been equally co-operative, and some of the figures have necessarily been estimated. We take pains to ensure that these estimates are as professional and free from bias as possible. The Institute owes a considerable debt to a number of its own members and consultants who have helped in compiling and checking material. The Director and the staff of the Institute assume full responsibility for the facts and judgments contained in this study. We would welcome comments and suggestions on the data presented in The Military Balance, since we seek to make it as comprehensive and accurate as possible.
   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.

КАК ПОЛЬЗОВАТЬСЯ ВОЕННЫМ БАЛАНСОМ

  
   Военный баланс обновляется ежегодно в целях своевременной количественной оценки военных сил и расходов на оборону более чем 140 стран по состоянию на 1 июля 1986 года.
  
   Общие положения
   В военном балансе есть три основных раздела. Первые группы национальных записей географически: США, СССР, Европа (Варшавский договор, НАТО, другие европейские страны), Ближний Восток и Северная Африка, Африка к югу от Сахары, Азия и Австралия (Китай, другие страны Азии и Тихого океана), и Латинская Америка. Каждой географической группе позиций предшествует краткое введение, описывающее международные пакты, соглашения и военную помощь, значительные изменения в оборонной позиции и экономическом положении соответствующих стран. Включение конкретного политического образования или связанной с ним военной организации никоим образом не подразумевает юридического признания таких образований или оказания им поддержки. Оглавление, предшествующее этому предисловию, дает страницы, на которых можно найти эту деталь.
   Во втором разделе содержатся сводные таблицы, содержащие сравнительную информацию о системах доставки ядерного оружия во всем мире и в Европейском регионе, общемировых расходах на оборону, численности военного персонала и основных выявленных контрактах на закупку оружия. В третьем, аналитическом, разделе есть эссе и таблица с анализом традиционного баланса европейского театра. Для оценки стратегического ядерного баланса в соответствии с 'правилами' установленными договорами об ограничении стратегических вооружений, эссе и сводная таблица. Экономические исследования включают: изучение изменений в общих государственных поступлениях и расходах и распространенности отдельных компонентов расходов по восьми странам за период 1973-1983 годов; графическое представление тенденций в оборонных расходах стран НАТО, Японии и Швеции в период 1972-1985 годов; и обсуждение глобальных оборонных расходов и моделей торговли оружием. Карты в полярной стереографической проекции, вставленные вместе с этим изданием, дают новый взгляд на развертывание стратегических наступательных и оборонительных сил двух сверхдержав.
   Национальные Позиции
   Информация по каждой стране приводится в стандартном формате, насколько это позволяет имеющаяся информация: экономические данные (ВВП, рост, задолженность, инфляция, оборонный бюджет и обменный курс); численность населения; численность военнослужащих, условия службы, численность резерва; отдельные вооруженные силы; и полувоенные силы. В этом издании сноски можно найти в конце национальной записи, а не в конце страницы.
   Экономические и демографические данные
   Экономические данные: мы приводим данные о ВВП, но при необходимости используем ВНП (ВВП равен ВНП минус чистый доход из-за рубежа). Данные по ВВП приводятся в текущих рыночных ценах (по факторной стоимости для стран Восточной Европы и некоторых других стран). Там, где это возможно, используются опубликованные источники, но мы оцениваем цифры, когда данные являются неполными, и отмечаем это с помощью V. Темпы роста ВВП/ ВНП указаны как реальный рост в реальном выражении. Темпы инфляции основаны на имеющихся индексах потребительских цен и относятся к среднегодовым показателям.
   По мере возможности использовалась система национальных счетов ООН, основанная на последней имеющейся международной финансовой статистике (МФС) Международного валютного фонда (МВФ). Для Восточной Европы используются данные обзора экономического положения Европы за 1985-1986 годы (Нью-Йорк: ООН, 1986 год) и "World Economic Outlook" (Вашингтон, округ Колумбия: МВФ, 1986 год). Оценки ВНП СССР основаны на расчетах коммерческих банков; показатели ВВП/ВНП Восточной Европы по факторным затратам рассчитаны на основе ВНП. ВВП/ВНП Китая определяется МВФ.
   Расходы на оборону: мы приводим последние данные о расходах на оборону или бюджете по состоянию на 1 июля 1986 года. Там, где это возможно, бюджеты/расходы на капитальное оборудование были добавлены к текущим/административным расходам. Цифры могут отличаться от предыдущих лет, часто из-за изменения самих правительств; последние цифры должны быть более точными. Между источниками часто существуют большие различия, однако наш опыт показывает, что данные центральных банков, как правило, являются наиболее полными и надежными. Некоторые страны включают расходы на внутренние и пограничные силы безопасности в свои оборонные бюджеты.
   Страны НАТО используют "стандартное определение" расходов на оборону, которое включает в себя все расходы на регулярные вооруженные силы, военную помощь (включая оборудование и подготовку) другим странам, военные пенсии, расходы правительства принимающей страны на войска-арендаторы НАТО, инфраструктуру НАТО и расходы на гражданский персонал; но исключает расходы на полувоенные силы (например, жандармерию). Оценки, показывающие различия во мнениях о советских расходах, приводятся во введении к вступлению этой страны. Данные об иностранной военной помощи основаны на опубликованных данных или, в некоторых случаях, оценках.
   Курсы пересчета валют: данные в национальной валюте были пересчитаны в доллары США для проведения сопоставлений. Ставка усредняется по национальному финансовому году (для 1986-1987 годов используется ставка середины 1986 года). Там, где это возможно, обменные курсы берутся из IFS, хотя они могут быть неприменимы к коммерческим сделкам. Высокие темпы инфляции в некоторых странах и долларовые диспропорции влияют на конверсию. Для СССР не существует адекватного коэффициента пересчета рублей в доллары. Для тех восточноевропейских стран, которые не являются членами МВФ, а также Венгрии и Румынии (которые являются), используются коэффициенты пересчета, описанные в T. P. Alton, "Экономический рост и распределение ресурсов в Восточной Европе", "Переориентация и торговые отношения экономик Восточной Европы", Объединенный экономический комитет, 93-й конгресс, 2-я сессия (Washington DG: USGPO, 1974).
   Численность населения: общая численность населения и доля населения призывного возраста взяты из мировых демографических прогнозов 1984 года (Вашингтон, округ Колумбия: Всемирный банк, 1984 год) и рассчитанных тенденций.
   Данные численности воинских формирований: в таблице ниже приводится примерная средняя численность основных воинских формирований в отдельных странах. Численность и структура соединений могут различаться.
    []
   Силы дивизий охватывают только органические подразделения. Вспомогательные и обслуживающие подразделения, не входящие в структуру дивизии, могут включаться отдельно, если это известно. Силы советских союзников и других стран, поддерживаемых Советским Союзом, имеют организации, аналогичные Советскому Союзу. Соединения и эскадрильи НАТО, не включенные в приведенную выше таблицу, имеют показатели, аналогичные показателям Германии, если в тексте не указано иное. Иран, Пакистан, Филиппины, Таиланд, Япония, Южная Корея и Тайвань, как правило, следуют американской военной организации, в то время как Австралия, Новая Зеландия, Малайзия и Сингапур широко используют британские модели.
   Живая сила. "Регулярная" общая численность включает весь персонал, постоянно служащий, включая призывников, долгосрочных сотрудников резервов и военнослужащих, когда это требуется национальным органом. Условия службы приводятся для призывников там, где это известно. "Резервный" компонент включает весь персонал, будь то в составе сформированных подразделений или нет, который призван служить вспомогательными или мобилизационными силами. Мобилизационная численность, как правило, представляет собой общую численность штатных и резервных сил. Однако некоторые обязательства Национальной резервной службы длятся почти всю жизнь; в этих случаях наши оценки численности эффективных в военном отношении резервистов основываются на сроках службы и количестве призывников, ежегодно проходящих обучение, умноженном на пять (исходя из предположения, что через пять лет стандарты медицинской и боевой подготовки резко снизятся).
   Организация: выраженные в общих чертах, данные предназначены для того, чтобы дать состав основных армейских формирований вплоть до батальонного уровня и включая батальонный уровень; незначительные подразделения показаны только в силах небольших стран. Военно-морские и воздушные оперативные группировки приводятся там, где это известно. Как правило, мы не показываем подразделения материально-технического обеспечения, вспомогательные морские суда (например, буксиры) или оборудование наземной поддержки ВВС.
   Полувоенные силы: во многих странах существуют организации, подготовка и оснащение которых выходят за рамки тех, которые требуются для выполнения функций гражданской полиции. Их конституция и контроль предполагают, что они могут использоваться для поддержки регулярных вооруженных сил или вместо них. Точные определения того, что является или не является полувоенными силами, не всегда возможны, и необходимо допускать определенную степень свободы действий. В тех случаях, когда внутренние оппозиционные силы, как представляется, представляют значительную угрозу внутренней безопасности государства, они показаны отдельно после национальных полувоенных сил.
   Вооружение: запасы (по типу и количеству) показаны по функции. Они представляют собой оперативные запасы. Где известно, оборудование на складах указано отдельно. Иногда можно перечислить вооружение в резервах; в других местах показанная общая сумма считается включающей предметы, отнесенные к резервам.
   Для военно-морских судов показано национальное обозначение, хотя размер корпуса, основное вооружение и миссия могут означать другую категорию в другом флоте. В соответствующих случаях перечисляются основные ракетные системы.
   Авиационная мощь эскадрилий ВВС различна; предпринимались попытки отделить общие запасы от заявленных сил. Когда основное вооружение, полученное из одного иностранного источника, можно спутать с оборудованием, полученным из других источников, мы перечисляем страну происхождения.
   Заказ: основное оборудование, приобретаемое внутри страны или за рубежом, перечисляется вместе с соответствующими услугами. (заказы флота, морской авиации и морской пехоты, как правило, объединены.) Эти заказы могут оставаться невыполненными в течение нескольких лет; поставки, особенно более крупного оборудования, часто происходят медленно. Когда поставки продолжаются, слово "некоторые" предупреждает, что "общий" инвентарь и предметы, оставшиеся "по заказу", могут отличаться. Закупки оружия, о которых сообщалось в течение года, закончившегося 1 июля 1986 года, отражены в таблице 3 Раздела 2 с указанием, где это известно, дат заключения контрактов, цен и сроков поставки. Расходуемые запасы, такие, как противотанковые ракеты, могут указываться в общей сложности, когда они заказываются, но не указываются в инвентарных запасах из-за сложности оценки норм использования. Мы не включаем стрелковое оружие или боеприпасы к нему. В целом мы не включаем артиллерию ПВО или автоматическое оружие калибром менее 14,5 мм.
   Оценки: прогнозы делаются только в тех случаях, когда имеются четкие доказательства того, что изменения в организации или инвентарных запасах происходят или вот-вот произойдут.
   Списки вооружения предназначены для того, чтобы показать, что является оперативным: общее число, как правило, значительно ниже общих инвентарных данных. В общем, " some " означает "до" и "about "означает "может быть немного выше, чем дано". Для некоторых категорий приводится общая цифра. Там, где это возможно, приводятся также количества отдельных предметов. Для таких записей была разработана стандартная система пунктуации, чтобы облегчить понимание деталей. Запасы вооружения трудно оценить, и мы приветствуем обоснованные поправки.
   Сокращения и определения
   Обширные и плотные сведения принуждают нас использовать сокращения. Они взяты из источников НАТО и обычно используются в военных кругах. С их алфавитным списком можно ознакомиться на стр. 12. Пунктуация не используется, и аббревиатура может иметь как единственное, так и множественное значение, например, "elm" = "element" или "elements". Математические символы используются в трех случаях: "(-)"означает, что часть блока отсоединена; "(+)" означает, что блок усилен;" <"означает, что судно имеет водоизмещение менее 100 тонн. Для обозначения источников оборудования используются сокращения национальных названий (например, "Ch" = "китайский"). Что касается финансовых сокращений, то знак "$"относится к долларам США, за исключением случаев, когда указано иное; термин "миллиард" (bn) равен 1000 миллионам (m). 'Combat aircraft' это нормально укомплектованные, и предназначенные, чтобы доставить боеприпасы (бомбардировщики (bbr), истребитель-бомбардировщик, истребителей-штурмовиков (FGA), ударные (ядерные), перехватчики, истребители (ftr), противоповстанческие (COIN) и вооруженные учебные), самолеты-разведчики (recce) (включая морские), боевые вертолеты (в том числе противолодочные) и учебно-боевые (OCU) которые можно на короткий срок привлекать для операций. Некоторые вертолеты, используемые для перевозки войск в районах боевых действий, могут быть вооружены, и необходимо проявлять определенную гибкость при идентификации.
   ПРЕДУПРЕЖДЕНИЕ
   Военный баланс - это оценка численного состава Вооруженных сил мира. это никоим образом не оценка их возможностей. он не оценивает ни качество подразделений или техники, ни влияние географии, доктрины, военной технологии, развертывания, подготовки, материально-технической поддержки, морального духа, руководства, тактической или стратегической инициативы, местности, погоды, политической воли или поддержки со стороны партнеров по альянсу.
   Институт также не в состоянии непосредственно оценивать и сравнивать показатели работы вооружения. Желающие могут использовать представленные данные для построения собственного баланса сил на двусторонней или региональной основе. Мы сделали это только для обычных вооруженных сил в Европе (см. с.226-7)
   Мы хотели бы предупредить, что такие балансы чрезвычайно чувствительны к предположениям о том, какие силы включать из каких стран, могут ли такие силы быть собраны и задействованы в возможном конфликте, и их боевой эффективности. Эти балансы в лучшем случае могут быть лишь приближением. Они не могут предсказать результаты встреч.
   Военный баланс приводит фактическую численность ядерных и обычных сил и вооружений в том виде, в каком мы их знаем, а не ту численность, которая была бы принята для целей проверки в соглашениях о контроле над вооружениями.
   Все это указывает на то, что при сборе данных, представленных здесь для конкретных целей, необходимо проявлять большую осторожность. Мы предоставляем обновленный и подробный каталог вооруженных сил в максимально возможном количестве измерений, который, как мы надеемся, будет в целом полезен. Мы не делаем здесь никаких суждений о качестве или эффективности или политических целях, лежащих в основе объединения власти.
   Данные, ежегодно представляемые в военном балансе, отражают суждения, основанные на информации, имеющейся у директора и сотрудников института на момент составления книги. Информация в последующих томах может отличаться от информации в предыдущих изданиях по целому ряду причин, главным образом в результате существенных изменений в национальных силах (например, закупка нового оборудования, утрата или выход на пенсию старого). В других случаях записи могут отличаться из года в год в результате переоценки доказательств, подтверждающих прошлые записи. С течением времени мы неизбежно приходим к выводу, что некоторая информация, представленная в более ранних версиях, является ошибочной или недостаточно подкрепленной надежными доказательствами. Следовательно, не всегда возможно построить достоверные сравнения временных рядов на основе последующих изданий Военного Баланса.
   Список опечаток
   Стремясь обеспечить максимальную точность, мы, начиная с этого издания, предоставляем список исправлений к прошлогодним записям, включая исправления типографских или редакционных ошибок, которые существенно влияют на существо представленного вопроса. Эти пункты (перечислены на стр. Пункт 238) не отражают изменений, происшедших в результате существенных изменений за последний год; скорее, они представляют собой исправления ошибок и пересмотр оценок, которые, по нашему мнению, были ошибочными.
   Кроме того, мы хотели бы обратить внимание наших читателей на некоторые несоответствия в прошлогоднем издании между материалами, представленными в Таблице 1 (ядерные средства доставки по всему миру, стр. G 158-65) и вопрос в двух таблицах, приложенных к эссе "Оценка советско-американского стратегического баланса". В ряде случаев данные о количестве боеголовок, связанных с конкретными системами доставки, или о выходе этих боеголовок различаются между различными таблицами, а в некоторых случаях наблюдается расхождение между данными, приведенными в таблицах, и данными, приведенными в сопроводительных сносках. Мы сожалеем о возникшей путанице и попытались прояснить эти несоответствия в представлении таблицы 1 в этом году. С учетом трудностей, связанных с достоверным определением соотношения мощности и нагрузки боеголовок (которые в любом случае варьируются в зависимости от оперативных потребностей), мы не включили в издание этого года таблицу эквивалентных мегатонн, хотя сохранили таблицу, в которой сравниваются оценочные стратегические ядерные боеголовки.
   Вывод
   Институт не имеет никаких обязательств перед каким-либо правительством, группой правительств или какой-либо политической или иной организацией. Наши оценки являются нашими собственными, основанными на материалах, имеющихся в нашем распоряжении из самых различных источников. Почти ко всем правительствам мы обратились с просьбой о сотрудничестве, и во многих случаях оно было получено. Не все страны в равной степени сотрудничают друг с другом, и поэтому некоторые цифры оценочные. Мы прилагаем все усилия для обеспечения того, чтобы эти оценки были как можно более профессиональными и свободными от предвзятости. Институт в большом долгу перед рядом своих собственных членов и консультантов, которые помогли в сборе и проверке материалов. Директора и сотрудники Института несут полную ответственность за факты и суждения, содержащиеся в данном исследовании. Мы хотели бы получить комментарии и предложения по данным, представленным в военном балансе, поскольку мы стремимся сделать их как можно более всеобъемлющими и точными.

COUNTRIES AND PRINCIPAL PACTS


The United States

   Strategic and Non-strategic Nuclear Systems.
   In 1986 the United States will begin deployment of the ten-warhead MIRV LGM-118 Peacekeeper (MX) missile. The first two missiles are expected to be placed in modified Minuteman III silos in September; the first wing of 10 missiles should become operational in December. The US Congress has authorized the deployment of 50 MX missiles, which should be completed by 1988. So far Congress has actually funded 33 missiles (including test vehicles and spares).
   At the same time, the US continues the phased retirement of the single-warhead Titan II ICBM. During the last twelve months it withdrew a further 16 of these, leaving a total of 10 in inventory, with two more to be withdrawn by the end of 1986. lt intends to eliminate the Titan II completely by November 1987.
   The United States also plans to intitiate full-scale development of the proposed small ICBM (SICBM or Midgetman), and funds are requested in the current budget, but continued controversy over the weight of the missile, basing options and the number of warheads to be deployed may lead to delays.
   The US SLBM program has become bound up in the domestic debate over continued observance of the ungratified SALT II Treaty. During the past year the US increased from 6 to 8 the number of operational Ohio-class SSBN (one of which is still on sea trials). This deployment meant an increase of 48 Trident I (C-4) SLBM. Concurrently, a total of 48 Poseidon SLBM have been withdrawn, keeping the US within the SALT II ceilings (both for missiles with MIRV-equipped warheads and for combined MIRV-equipped warheads and heavy bombers with ALCM). The next year's budget includes funds to begin procurement of the first 21 Trident II (D-5) SLBM, scheduled to begin deployment at the end of the decade.
   Delivery of the B-1B strategic bomber began a year ago; by 1 July 1986 19 of these aircraft had been fielded. The first squadron will be fully operational in September 1986, while the second squadron will begin receiving its aircraft in January 1987. Funding has now been authorized for all the 100 planned B-1Bs; the US Air Force has no plans at present to purchase additional bombers of this type, looking instead to deployment of the ATB (or 'Stealth') bomber in the 1990s.
   The United States continues the process of converting B-52 strategic bombers to ALCM carriers, with the 131st B-52 to be converted scheduled to be ready by the end of 1986. If no compensating actions are taken, completion of this conversion will cause the US to exceed the SALT II limits for missiles with MIRV-equipped warheads and bombers with ALCM.
   The programme to improve detection and early warning systems continues. The upgrading of the BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System) radar in Thule, Greenland is near completion, while work continues at Fylingdales, England (scheduled for completion around 1990). Construction of the fourth Pave Paws SLBM detection radar in Texas is expected to be completed in the coming year and work continues on converting the DEW (Distant Early Warning) line to the updated 'North Warning System', including new unmanned automatic systems.
   The catastrophic Challenger shuttle accident and the launch failures of two unmanned boosters has meant delay in launching a number of planned military and reconnaissance satellite systems, though the extent of the impact on US programmes and capabilities is difficult to state with certainty.
   The US Administration continues to place a high priority on strategic defence research, funding for which virtually doubled in the last year (from $1.4 billion to $2.7 billion).
   The United States has completed the replacement of Pershing IA SSM with the Pershing II, with the deployment of 108 missiles in West Germany and a training battalion and 42 launchers available in the United States as possible replacement or reinforcement systems. GLCM deployment in Western Europe continues, with 128 currently operational.
   Conventional Forces
   The US Army continues to examine its infantry divisional organization and equipment, and some further reorganization is reported to be under consideration for the air assault and airborne divisions. Equipment modernization programmes continue. The proportion of M-1 Abrams in the main battle tank inventory has risen from 21%to 33% at the expense of M-48 and M-60. There has been a 62% increase in the numbers of Bradley M-2/M-3 MICV in the year. The artillery presentation format has been changed in this edition in order to make identification of calibres and totals easier.
   The Navy shows an increase of six Los Angeles-class attack submarines. In the surface fleet there are two more Ticonderoga cruisers and five more Perry-class guided-missile frigates. The deployment of SLCM continues, both in the Los Angeles-class SSN (five of which carry 12 Tomahawk each) and in the battleships (all three of which carry 32). The missile will also be fitted in the Ticonderoga-class cruisers. The Near Term Prepostioning Force of supply vessels to support the US Marine Corps deployments abroad has been replaced by three squadrons of Maritime Pre-positioning Ships. The third squadron, which is now being loaded, will be deployed to the Philippines later in 1986. There has been a significant increase in naval combat aviation strength with the delivery of some 180 F/A-18. The US Marine Corps continues to upgrade its vehicle inventory, with deliveries of the LVT and LAV. Its 105mm light howitzers have been withdrawn, replaced by the 155mm. To augment the existing Marine Corps AV-8A/C Harriers, 30 AV-8B V/STOL attack aircraft have entered service.
   The US Air Force's most notable accession has been over 400 F-16, bringing the total of that type to 977. This increase has also benefited the Air National Guard (ANG) and the Air Force Reserve, both of which have received some of these aircraft. Procurement of the F-15 continues. The F-4 AD squadron in Iceland has been re-equipped with 18 of the type. The F-106 in Regular and Air National Guard interceptor duties remains, although replacement of F-106 with F-15 and F-16 has begun. The F-15 is being improved and the later 'dual role' E models (air superiority and interdiction) are planned to replace some of the earlier versions in the active forces. The Air Force also continues a multi-faceted airlift improvement programme, with completion of the re-winging of the C-5A inventory, initial deployment of the C-5B and continued full-scale engineering development of the C-17 intra- and inter-theatre cargo aircraft all expected in the next year.
   The US Coast Guard - whose expenditures fall outside the Department of Defense budget, but which, nevertheless, is legally a part of the Armed Forces - has made significant increases to its medium-endurance cutter and patrol craft inventories. Both programmes continue. There has also been some augmentation and improvement of its helicopter inventory. All these developments enhance the Coast Guard's capability to conduct anti-drug patrols, a task in which it is assisted by elements of the other Services.
   US Defence Budget
   After seven years of rising federal deficits reaching $212 billion in 1985, Congress and the Administration agreed to an automatic budget cutting plan to balance the US budget by 1991. The Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (better known as the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Plan) modified the congressional budgeting process and mandated radical domestic and defence spending reductions over the next five years. Senate conservatives and the Administration saw the law as a means to guarantee domestic spending cuts. House liberals agreed to the proposal as a means to slash the defence budget and pressure the Reagan Administration to raise taxes. Both liberals and conservatives viewed automatic across-the-board spending cuts as the worst-case scenario, should they fail to agree to an adequate revenue and spending plan to reduce the deficit.
   Most importantly, the Gramm-Rudman Act set specific deficit targets for the next five fiscal years; FY 1986 $172 bn; FY 1987 $144 bn; FY 1988 $108 bn; FY 1989 $72 bn; FY 1990 $36 bn; FY 1991 no deficit. If Congress and the President could not agree to a spending plan within $10 bn of the maximum deficit amounts, the Act required automatic spending cuts (known as sequestration) involving equal percentage reductions in all budget accounts, except for those exempted: social security, Medicaid, food stamps and interest on the federal debt, which are more than a third of the domestic budget. The Supreme Court eventually ruled the enforcement provisions unconstitutional, because they involved a congressional officer (the Comptroller General) rather than the Executive branch in making the spending cuts. The Congress is considering ways to meet the Supreme Court's technical objection, and broad public support exists for meeting the deficit targets.
   The new congressional budgeting process contained in the Gramm-Rudman legislation requires that the President submit his budget in early January. Congress subsequently must pass one budget resolution (rather than two) which contains specific spending instructions to the authorization and appropriations committees -known as reconciliation -and requires these committees to report bills that meet the spending limits set in the budget resolution. Previously the authorization and appropriations committees could ignore the recommended spending amounts in congressional budget resolutions. The President cannot veto the budget resolution but he may, as in the past, veto individual appropriation and authorization bills. The new budget process is being used in 1986 for the spending decisions for FY 1987.
   Changing Times at The Pentagon
   The Reagan Administration's defence build-up is over. Table I outlines how the final FY 1986 national defence spending total came about. Six months after Reagan's initial request, Congress and the Administration agreed to hold FY 1986 defence spending to 0% real growth, followed by 3% real growth in FY 1987 and FY 1988. Mid-term re-estimates of defence spending and the adoption of Gramm-Rudman further reduced Reagan's original request. The first round of automatic spending cuts, totalling $11.7 bn in federal outlays, were triggered on 1 March 1986. Defence spending for FY 1986 was cut by $5.4 bn in outlays and $14.1 bn in budget authority. For FY 1986 only, the Gramm-Rudman Act allows the Administration to shelter some military programmes from automatic reductions. The President chose to protect most military personnel accounts, SDI funding, and a few multi-year procurement contracts. The rest of the defence budget was uniformly cut by 4.9%. Despite these measures the current FY 1986 deficit may be close to $230 bn - leaving some doubt about future abilities to manage the deficit. Nearly all observers believe that it will be impossible for the government to continue increasing defence expenditure in the current political and economic environment. Major spending categories for the past decade are found in Table II. For FY 1987 the Reagan Administration requested $320.3 bn in BA and $282.2 bn in outlays, representing 7.9% and 2.0% real increases respectively. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the request underestimates national defence outlays by almost $15 bn.
   The result of the current budget-cutting mood in Washington is that defence spending is being cut for fiscal rather than strategic reasons. Pentagon planners have already had to cut more than $250 bn from the $1.8 trillion FY 1987-91 defence plan.

In the next few months Congress and the Reagan Administration will need to make several strategic as well as budget-cutting decisions in order to accommodate a decreasing amount of defence resources. The cuts are such that merely deferring or cancelling a few controversial procurement programmes, such as the C-17 transport aircraft, the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) or the Bradley MICV will be enough. According to analyses by the Congressional Budget Office, radical cuts in the readiness accounts, including ammunition, flying time and manning levels, would save only $11-17 bn in outlays and BA for FY 1987. Cutting procurement levels to below replacement rates while preserving readiness accounts would offer long-term savings but fewer dividends in the short run (in the region of $10-15 bn in outlays and $54-62 bn in BA for FY 1987). Even if the Pentagon cancelled the major nuclear programmes and SDI, only about $7.0 bn in outlays and $18.0 bn in BA would be saved.
   Since his first inauguration, President Reagan's defence build-up has been pared down from the amounts initially planned. In his first comprehensive five-year defence plan submitted in 1982, the Administration projected FY 1986 national defence spending as $375.2 bn in BA and $324.4 bn in outlays, whereas it actually totalled much less. As shown in Table III, spending in all major categories has increased, but the biggest increase is the doubling of the procurement account. Both nuclear and conventional force modernization received early spending priorities which raised procurement expenditure to a higher plateau than envisaged by the previous Administration. All four services have benefited from the huge growth in the investment budget. In fact, the relative budget shares of the Navy, Army and Marine Corps have remained relatively static, although the Air Force share has grown recently as new strategic systems are funded.
   Historically, American defence spending has shown a series of surges and falls, while Soviet spending seems to follow a slow steady upward path. President Reagan has improved the United States military posture with new equipment. The question is whether the United States will be able to maintain defence expenditure at a high level or whether it will follow the pattern of the last forty years.
  

Соединенные Штаты Америки

  
   Стратегические и нестратегические ядерные системы
   В 1986 году США приступят к развертыванию десятиблочной ракеты MIRV LGM-118 Peacekeeper (MX). Первые две ракеты, как ожидается, будут размещены в модифицированных шахтах Minuteman III в сентябре; первое крыло из 10 ракет должно вступить в строй в декабре. Конгресс США санкционировал развертывание 50 ракет MX, которое должно быть завершено к 1988 году. До сих пор конгресс фактически финансировал 33 ракеты (включая испытательные и запасные части).
   В то же время США продолжают поэтапный вывод МБР Titan II с одной боеголовкой. За последние двенадцать месяцев они сняли еще 16 из них, оставив в общей сложности 10 в запасах, а еще два должны быть сняты к концу 1986 года. к ноябрю 1987 года Титан-II будет полностью уничтожен.
   Соединенные Штаты также планируют приступить к полномасштабной разработке предлагаемой малой МБР (SICBM или Midgetman), и в нынешнем бюджете испрашиваются средства, однако продолжающиеся споры по поводу веса ракеты, вариантов базирования и количества боеголовок могут привести к задержкам.
   Американская программа БРПЛ оказалась вовлеченной во внутренние дебаты по поводу дальнейшего соблюдения ненормированного договора ОСВ II. За прошедший год США увеличили с 6 до 8 количество действующих ПЛАРБ типа Ohio (одна из которых все еще находится на морских испытаниях). Это развертывание означало увеличение на 48 БРПЛ Trident I (C-4). Одновременно было выведено в общей сложности 48 ПЛАРБ Poseidon, что удержало США в пределах потолков SALT II (как для ракет с боеголовками, оснащенными MIRV, так и для комбинированных боеголовок, оснащенных MIRV, и тяжелых бомбардировщиков с ALCM). В бюджете на следующий год предусмотрены средства для начала закупки первых 21 БРПЛ Trident II (D-5), развертывание которых планируется начать в конце десятилетия.
   Поставка стратегического бомбардировщика B-1B началась год назад, к 1 июля 1986 года было выпущено 19 таких самолетов. Первая эскадрилья будет полностью введена в строй в сентябре 1986 года, а вторая эскадрилья начнет принимать свои самолеты в январе 1987 года. В настоящее время финансирование санкционировано для всех 100 запланированных B-1B; в настоящее время ВВС США не планируют приобретать дополнительные бомбардировщики этого типа, вместо этого переведя внимание на развертывание бомбардировщика ATB (или "стелс") в 1990-х годах.
   Соединенные Штаты продолжают процесс преобразования стратегических бомбардировщиков B-52 в носители ALCM, а 131-й B-52 планируется переоборудовать к концу 1986 года. Если не будут приняты компенсационные меры, завершение этой конверсии заставит США превысить пределы ОСВ II для ракет с боеголовками, оснащенными MIRV, и бомбардировщиков с ALCM.
   Продолжается осуществление программы совершенствования систем обнаружения и раннего предупреждения. В Туле, Гренландия, близится к завершению модернизация радиолокатора BMEWS (системы раннего предупреждения о баллистических ракетах), в то время как в Файлингдейлсе, Англия, продолжаются работы (которые планируется завершить примерно в 1990 году). Ожидается, что строительство четвертого Pave Paws SLBM detection radar в Техасе будет завершено в следующем году, и продолжаются работы по преобразованию линии DEW (Distant Early Warning) в обновленную "Северную систему предупреждения", включая новые беспилотные автоматические системы.
   Катастрофическая авария шаттла Challenger и неудачи запуска двух беспилотных ускорителей привели к задержке запуска ряда запланированных военных и разведывательных спутниковых систем, хотя степень воздействия на программы и возможности США трудно с уверенностью утверждать.
   Администрация США продолжает уделять приоритетное внимание стратегическим оборонным исследованиям, финансирование которых за последний год практически удвоилось (с $1,4 млрд до $2,7 млрд).
   Соединенные Штаты завершили замену БР Pershing IA на Pershing II, развернув 108 ракет в Западной Германии и учебный батальон и 42 пусковые установки, имеющиеся в Соединенных Штатах в качестве возможных систем замены или усиления. Развертывание GLCM в Западной Европе продолжается, и в настоящее время функционирует 128.
   Обычные вооруженные силы
   Армия США продолжает изучать организацию и оснащение своих пехотных дивизий, и, как сообщается, рассматривается вопрос о дальнейшей реорганизации воздушно-штурмовых и воздушно-десантных дивизий. Продолжаются программы модернизации оборудования. Доля М-1 Abrams в основном боевом танковом инвентаре возросла с 21% до 33% за счет М-48 и М-60. В течение года наблюдалось увеличение на 62% числа БМП Bradley M-2/M-3. Формат презентации артиллерии был изменен в этом издании, чтобы облегчить идентификацию калибров и итогов.
   Флот показывает увеличение на шесть ударных подводных лодок класса Los Angeles. В надводном флоте добавилось еще два крейсера Ticonderoga и пять ракетных фрегатов класса Perry. Продолжается развертывание КРМБ как на ПЛА класса Los Angeles (пять из которых несут по 12 Tomahawk), так и на линкорах (все три несут по 32). Ракета также будет установлена на крейсерах класса Ticonderoga. В ближайшей перспективе силы снабжения судов для поддержки развертывания Корпуса морской пехоты США за рубежом были заменены тремя эскадрами морских судов предварительного позиционирования. Третья эскадра, которая сейчас загружается, будет развернута на Филиппинах позже в 1986 году. Было отмечено значительное увеличение численности морской боевой авиации с поставкой около 180 F/A-18. Корпус морской пехоты США продолжает модернизировать свой инвентарь транспортных средств с поставками LVT и LAV. Легкие гаубицы 105-мм были заменены на 155-мм. В дополнение к существующим истребителям AV-8A/C морской пехоты на вооружение поступило 30 штурмовиков ВВП AV-8B.
   Наиболее пополнением ВВС США было более 400 F-16, в результате чего общее количество этого типа составило 977. Это увеличение также пошло в Национальную гвардию ВВС (ANG) и резерв ВВС, которые получили некоторые из этих самолетов. Закупки F-15 продолжаются. Эскадрилья F-4 ПВО в Исландии была перевооружена на 18 таких самолетов. F-106 в регулярных ВВС и Национальной гвардии в роли перехватчика остаются, хотя замена F-106 на F-15 и F-16 началась. F-15 совершенствуется, а более поздние модели "двойной роли" E (превосходство в воздухе и перехват) планируется заменят некоторые из более ранних версий в активных силах. Военно-воздушные силы также продолжают осуществление многогранной программы совершенствования воздушных перевозок, в рамках которой, как ожидается, в следующем году будут завершены работы по переоснащению с С-5А на C-5В и продолжена полномасштабная инженерная разработка грузовых самолетов C-17 для перевозок внутри театра военных действий и между театрами военных действий.
   Береговая охрана США, расходы которой выходят за рамки бюджета Министерства обороны, но которая, тем не менее, юридически является частью Вооруженных сил, значительно увеличила свои силы катеров средней дальности и патрульных судов. Обе программы продолжаются. Кроме того, были внесены некоторые дополнения и улучшения в их вертолетный парк. Все эти события расширяют возможности береговой охраны по осуществлению патрулирования в целях борьбы с наркотиками, в чем ей помогают сотрудники других служб.
   Оборонный бюджет США
   После семи лет роста дефицита федерального бюджета, достигшего 212 миллиардов долларов в 1985 году, Конгресс и администрация согласились на автоматическое сокращение бюджета, чтобы сбалансировать бюджет США к 1991 году. Закон 1985 года о сбалансированном бюджете и контроле за чрезвычайным дефицитом (более известный как план Грэмма-Радмана-Холлингса) изменил бюджетный процесс Конгресса и предписал радикальное сокращение внутренних и оборонных расходов в течение следующих пяти лет. Сенатские консерваторы и администрация рассматривали закон как средство гарантировать сокращение внутренних расходов. Либералы Палаты представителей согласились с предложением сократить оборонный бюджет и оказать давление на администрацию Рейгана с целью повышения налогов. И либералы, и консерваторы рассматривали автоматическое повсеместное сокращение расходов как наихудший сценарий, если они не согласятся на адекватный план доходов и расходов для сокращения дефицита.
   Самое главное, закон Грэмма-Рудмана установил конкретные целевые показатели дефицита на следующие пять финансовых лет: FY 1986 $172 млрд; FY 1987 $144 млрд; FY 1988 $108 млрд; FY 1989 $72 млрд; FY 1990 $36 млрд; FY 1991 без дефицита. Если Конгресс и президент не могли договориться о плане расходов в пределах 10 млрд. долл. США от максимального дефицита, закон требовал автоматического сокращения расходов (известного как секвестр), предусматривающего равные процентные сокращения на всех бюджетных счетах, за исключением тех, которые освобождены: социальное обеспечение, медицина, продовольственные талоны и проценты по федеральному долгу, которые составляют более трети внутреннего бюджета. В конечном итоге Верховный суд признал положения об исполнении неконституционными, поскольку они предусматривали участие сотрудника Конгресса (генерального контролера), а не исполнительной власти в сокращении расходов. Конгресс рассматривает пути удовлетворения технических возражений Верховного суда, и широкая общественность поддерживает достижение целевых показателей дефицита.
   Новый бюджетный процесс Конгресса, содержащийся в законодательстве Грэмма-Радмана, требует, чтобы президент представил свой бюджет в начале января. Впоследствии Конгресс должен принять одну бюджетную резолюцию (а не две), которая содержит конкретные инструкции по расходованию средств комитетам по санкционированию и ассигнованиям - известную как выверка - и требует, чтобы эти комитеты представляли доклады о законопроектах, которые соответствуют лимитам расходов, установленным в бюджетной резолюции. Ранее комитеты по санкционированию и ассигнованиям могли игнорировать рекомендованные суммы расходов в бюджетных резолюциях Конгресса. Президент не может наложить вето на резолюцию по бюджету, но он может, как и в прошлом, наложить вето на отдельные законопроекты об ассигнованиях и санкционировании. Новый бюджетный процесс используется в 1986 году для принятия решений о расходах за 1987 финансовый год.
   Перемены в Пентагоне
   Укрепление обороны администрации Рейгана закончилось. В таблице I показано, как в 1986 году был получен итоговый общий объем расходов на национальную оборону. Через шесть месяцев после первоначального запроса Рейгана Конгресс и администрация согласились сохранить расходы на оборону на уровне 0% реального роста, за которым последовал 3% реального роста в 1987 и 1988 годах. Среднесрочная переоценка оборонных расходов и принятие Грэмма-Радмана еще больше сократили первоначальный запрос Рейгана. 1 марта 1986 года начался первый раунд автоматического сокращения расходов на общую сумму 11,7 млрд. долл. Расходы на оборону за 1986 финансовый год были сокращены на 5,4 млрд. долл. Только в 1986 финансовом году Закон Грэмма-Рудмана позволяет администрации укрывать некоторые военные программы от автоматического сокращения. Президент решил защитить большинство счетов военного персонала, финансирование SDI и несколько многолетних контрактов на закупки. Остальная часть оборонного бюджета была сокращена на 4,9%. Несмотря на эти меры, текущий дефицит FY 1986 может быть близок к $230 млрд, что оставляет некоторые сомнения в будущих способностях управлять дефицитом. Почти все наблюдатели считают, что правительство не сможет продолжать увеличивать расходы на оборону в нынешних политических и экономических условиях. Основные категории расходов за последнее десятилетие приводятся в таблице II. За 1987 финансовый год администрация Рейгана запросила $320,3 млрд в BA и $ 282,2 млрд в расходах, что составляет 7,9% и 2,0% реального увеличения соответственно. Бюджетное управление Конгресса считает, что запрос недооценивает расходы на национальную оборону почти на $ 15 млрд.
   В результате нынешнего настроения Вашингтона по поводу сокращения бюджета расходы на оборону сокращаются скорее по финансовым, чем по стратегическим причинам. Планировщикам Пентагона уже пришлось сократить более $250 млрд из плана обороны на $ 1,8 трлн.
   Таб
В следующих нескольких месяцах Конгрессу и администрации Рейгана нужно будет принять несколько стратегических, а также бюджетных решений, чтобы учесть сокращение объема оборонных ресурсов. Сокращения таковы, что будет достаточно просто отложить или отменить несколько спорных программ закупок, таких как транспортный самолет C-17, усовершенствованная ракета средней дальности "воздух-воздух" (AMRAAM) или БМП Bradley. Согласно анализу Бюджетного управления Конгресса, радикальное сокращение счетов готовности, включая боеприпасы, летное время и численность персонала, сэкономит только 11-17 млрд. долл. Снижение уровня закупок до уровня ниже уровня замещения при сохранении счетов готовности обеспечит долгосрочную экономию, но меньшее количество дивидендов в краткосрочной перспективе (в районе $10-15 млрд в расходах и $ 54-62 млрд в BA за FY 1987). Даже если бы Пентагон отменил основные ядерные программы и СОИ, было бы сэкономлено только около $7,0 млрд в расходах и $18,0 млрд в BA.
   С момента его первой инаугурации, наращивание обороны президента Рейгана было сокращено от первоначально запланированных сумм. В своем первом всеобъемлющем пятилетнем плане обороны, представленном в 1982 году, администрация прогнозировала, что расходы на национальную оборону в 1986 году составят 375,2 млрд. долл. Как показано в таблице III, расходы по всем основным категориям возросли, однако наибольшее увеличение приходится на удвоение счета закупок. Как ядерная, так и обычная модернизация вооруженных сил получила ранние приоритеты расходов, которые повысили расходы на закупки до более высокого уровня, чем предполагалось предыдущей администрацией. Все четыре службы выиграли от огромного роста инвестиционного бюджета. Фактически относительная доля бюджета Военно-Морского Флота, армии и морской пехоты остается относительно неизменной, хотя доля Военно-Воздушных сил в последнее время возросла по мере финансирования новых стратегических систем.
   Исторически американские расходы на оборону демонстрировали ряд скачков и падений, в то время как советские расходы, похоже, медленно и неуклонно растут. Президент Рейган улучшил военную позицию Соединенных Штатов с помощью новой техники. Вопрос заключается в том, смогут ли Соединенные Штаты сохранить расходы на оборону на высоком уровне или же они будут следовать модели последних сорока лет.

The Soviet Union

   Strategic Forces
   After the apparent pause noted in The Military Balance 1985-1986, reports on the Soviet Strategic Forces show major developments in all major weapon categories. Though the number of ICBM launchers remains at 1,398, 72 of the earliest version of the SS-11 have been replaced by the SS-25, which is being deployed in units of 9 launchers in former SS-7 ICBM sites. The single warhead of the SS-11 had an estimated yield of 950 KT; the SS-25 also has one warhead but with an estimated 550-KT yield. The loss of some 28.8 MT in yield is more than compensated for by the increased accuracy of the SS-25: reported as 200 metres, compared with 1,400 metres for the SS-11 mod 1. The SS-25 uses solid fuel, giving it a shorter launch time, and is road mobile. A second new ICBM, the SS-X-24 is undergoing tests and may be deployed shortly.
   The USSR introduced a new SLBM, the SS-N-23 in 1985. This liquid-fuelled missile is said to have a range similar to the SS-N-20 (8,300 km), a CEP of less than 900 metres and a payload of 10 MIRV warheads, each of perhaps 200 KT yield.
   Two Delta IV boats (32 SLBM) are now in service. A fourth Typhoon (with 20 SS-N-20) has also entered service, and two Y-I boats have been withdrawn. The SSBN total therefore remains at 77, and the number of missiles rises by four to 983 (using SALT counting rules the totals are 62 SSBN and 944 SLBM). The SS-N-23 is replacing the SS-N-6, which carried two MRV warheads, with yields variously estimated at 500 KT to 1 MT. With its MIRV warheads the SS-N-23 has the potential to engage ten times the number of targets at some 2.75 times the range of its predecessor.
   The Strategic Bomber Force shows a significant drop in the number of Mya-4 Bison, from 45 to 20. No alternative use for this 30-year-old aircraft has yet been reported. The equally elderly Tu-95 Bear design is back in production, with some 40 'H' models, each equipped with 6 AS-15 air-launched cruise missiles (ALCM), fifteen more than were reported last year. The AS-15 ALCM has a range of some 1,800 km, a speed of about Mach 0.6 and a single warhead with a yield of 250 KT.
   The SS-4 MRBM is also being phased out. Holdings as of 1 July 1986 are believed to be 112, down by 8 from last year. The SS-20 IRBM inventory now stands at 441, an increase of 18 over the same period. There appears to have been a small re-deployment from Central Asia of some 36 missiles. These, and the additional 18 that have been deployed in the past 12 months, have together significantly increased the deployment of missiles which can strike targets anywhere in Europe to 270. The Asian deployment stands at some 171 missiles, comprising the 162 already deployed in the Far East and the 9 missiles probably remaining in Central Asia.
   General-Purpose Forces
   The Soviet system of seniority is: Strategic Nuclear Forces (SNF), Ground Troops (Army), Air Defence, Air Force and Navy. The Ground Forces are reported to have added a motor rifle division and two air assault brigades to the Order of Battle. lt is now confirmed that the Army has taken over from the Air Forces of the Soviet Union all combat helicopters used in support of the Ground Forces. This has made a difference to the respective numbers of troops shown for each Service. The heavy equipment list shows increasing numbers of T-80 main battle tanks and the new BTR-80 APC now in service. There is probably a trend towards more modern artillery pieces at the expense of the earlier models; insufficient data precludes analysis of the numbers involved. The earlier reportage of the SS-22 as a replacement for the SS-12 presumed that there were significant visual (as well as technical) differences between the two weapons. External differences are minor, and we have accordingly listed the new SSM as 'SS-12 (mod)'. No further information has come to light concerning the SSC-X-4 ground-launched cruise missile (GLCM), reported last year. A NATO name for the SA-11 SAM -Gadfly -is noted. The SA-14 is now beginning to replace the SA-7, and the SA-X-12, an apparent replacement for the SA-4, may come into service soon.
   Notwithstanding a number of additional items of information, we still have been unable to clarify the organization and structure of the Soviet Air Defence Service. That some air defence aircraft are deployed within the Air Forces of the Military Districts is an added complication. Modest increases in the numbers of MiG-29 and MiG-31 interceptors appear to be the only changes of note. Reports continue to suggest that the elderly SA-1 is still in service, although replacement by the SA-10 continues. The number of SA-10 SAM has increased by about 50% over the past year.
   Organization of the respective Military District Air Forces has been separated from the aircraft inventories. Readers will find approximate figures in the Deployment section, but it is not yet possible to provide an overall summary of the number of regiments by role. The Military Transport arm has equipment assigned outside its direct control to Strategic and other Air Commands.
   The Navy continues to test the combination of Yankee-class SSGN with the new SS-NX- 24 submarine-launched cruise missile (SLCM). We do not have any information that this SLCM is in service, and the deletion of the 'X' in last year's edition was in error. The USSR is also testing the SS-NX-21, which is similar in performance to the US Tomahawk cruise missile. There are now three Oscar-class boats (SSGN), one more than in 1985. Retirement of a Charlie and an Echo SSGN, and Juliet, W-Long Bin and Foxtrot diesel boats (one of each) has taken place. New production Kilo-class SS will replace at least some of these later types. The fourth Kiev-class carrier, shown as on trials last year, appears not yet to be in service. The second Slava cruiser may only just be coming into service. Two more Sovremennyy DDG and Udaloy ASW destroyers are reported; some of the Kanin and Kotlin destroyers may have retired. The Naval Aviation inventory shows an increase of some 20 Tu-22M Backfire and more Tu-16 Badger. Procurement includes a number of amphibious warfare ships.
   Our estimate of possible deployments remains much as it was in 1985. Again, we would welcome comment. In summary, however, we see the Soviet Union as generally maintaining its forces' procurement programmes, which are leading to a steady improvement in quality. There appear to be no major breakthroughs, although more complex weapon systems, such as aircraft, continue to show increasing sophistication.
   Defence Expenditure
   Defence spending in the Soviet Union, as officially announced by the government, held steady or decreased slightly in the 1970s. From 1981-84, it was frozen at 17.054 bn roubles ($23.065 bn). But in September 1984, Soviet Finance Minister Vasily Garbuzov announced an 11.8% increase in official defence spending for 1985 to 19.063 bn roubles ($22.257 bn). 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. This largest annual spending increase in defence spending in twenty-five years was portrayed as a measured response to recent increases in American defence expenditure. In 1986, however, the USSR froze the level of official defence spending at 19.063 bn roubles; in combination with the arms control offers in 1986, this not only reflects Moscow's new foreign-policy approach but also looks like an economic signal that its defence burden must not increase.
   Nearly all Western observers believe that the one-line official Soviet defence figures underestimate actual expenditure by a factor often or more, and that the USSR has consistently outspent the US for the last decade. Most observers believe that actual military spending represents 12-17% of the Soviet GDP. Some unclassified defence expenditure estimates are listed in the Table on the next page. The majority of those who produce estimates or '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 3-5% in 1982-85.
   There is widespread disagreement over what programmes should be included in the definition of Soviet 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 its concept of 'national defence'. But estimates based on that wider definition (which are not included in the Table below) are not comparable to definitions of Western defence expenditures and will tend to show higher Soviet defence spending.
  
    []
  
   Western sovietologists use two basic methodologies to calculate Soviet defence outlays. Some non-government analysts examine the published budget documents and add military related expenditures in non-defence line items. Most analysts - including those of the US CIA, the US DIA and the British MoD - estimate Soviet procurement, RDT&E, O&M, personnel costs, etc. individually in either roubles or dollars and then convert to the other. Roubles are used to indicate the defence burden on the Soviet economy, and dollars facilitate a comparison with American programmes. The methodologies for making these government estimates are rarely made public. Both the CIA and DIA collect raw data and have developed indirect economic analyses in order to calculate the costs to the USSR of producing material for defence items in dollars and in roubles.
   For procurement, they estimate production runs and then estimate the level of spending from what it would cost in dollars to produce a similar weapon in the West. For example, the unit price and production estimates for a T-80 tank are $1.2-1.6 m (1982: 400 units); for a T-72 tank $1.0-1.3 m (1982: 1,000 units); and for a BMP-2 MICV $0.3-0.45 m (1982: 4,000 units). There are obvious difficulties with this method. Production statistics must be based primarily on photographie reconnaissance, and many gaps in information exist. Information is lacking on weapons exports as well as the structure of reserve stocks. 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 have reportedly grown at 2% per year for the last ten years. For manpower costs, estimates are derived from known military salary rates, rank structure and ration scales. These are fairly reliable; but it is difficult to estimate manpower-support costs. Soviet R&D accounts are, in the CIA's words, 'the least reliable' and estimates are roughly derived from Soviet budgetary allocations to science. 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 by 3-4% annually since 1976, but the published data for RDT&E and O&M accounts is minimal.
   Difficulties surrounding estimates of 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 USSR's budgeting process and military-industrial policy, and the limited number of Soviet studies programmes outside the intelligence community.*
   Since the CIA first released its estimates of Soviet defence spending in 1974, it has revised its methodology on three occasions, and these revisions have caused some confusion in the media. In 1976, as a result of new information indicating that levels of output in the defence industries were much lower than had been assumed, it re-evaluated Soviet rouble defence production costs. As a result, its estimate of Soviet defence costs in roubles was doubled, though the dollar estimates were unaffected. In the second revision in 1983 (part of a re-evaluation of 1979-81 estimates, which had previously suggested that Soviet defence spending was growing at a rate of 4-5% annually), the CIA revised its methodology, having decided that the rate of equipment accession was lower then expected. As a result, both the dollar and rouble spending estimates were revised to reflect a growth rate of 2% annually. This year the CIA updated its price base from 1970 to 1982 price levels. The new pricing system does not fundamentally alter the agency's estimates of Soviet defence spending; the only difference is that military spending in 1982 prices reflects a greater share of the economy (15-17%) than in 1970 prices (13-16%). The new estimate of the defence burden is compatible with DIA analyses and suggests that inflation in the military sector is greater than in the general economy.
   DIA dollar and rouble estimates are stated in current, rather than constant, currency terms. The DIA believes that Soviet defence spending roughly doubled between 1970 and 1981, and in its latest reports suggests that Soviet defence spending has increased at about 5% annually since 1983. Both CIA and DIA caution that any estimate of currency spending will be subject to revision, and that there is approximately a five-year lag before current estimates can be fully confirmed and evaluated.
   The DIA and CIA agree that the Soviet budget for procurement increased by 1% annually between 1975 and 1981. The DIA's procurement estimate, which is based on pricing of 250 major weapons systems, concludes that spending on procurement increased by 3-5% annually in 1981-86. The CIA, whose estimates measure total procurement, argues that recent procurement resources are stagnant. Based on these latest estimates, American spending on procurement overtook Soviet procurement spending in 1984. Some observers have noted with a touch of irony that, despite major (but narrowing) technology differences between Soviet and American systems, the USSR managed to produce more than twice as much as the US using a much smaller rate of procurement growth.
   Defence and the Soviet Economy under Gorbachev
   On coming to power Mikhail Gorbachev inherited a number of strengths in the world's second largest economy: petroleum and iron ore extraction, steel and cement production and a machine tools sector, all of which exceed American output.
   GNP growth in 1985f was 2.6% for the second year running. The year began with one of the coldest winters on record which caused major transport and production bottlenecks. Industrial output picked up in the second half to finish at a 2.8% annual rate. However, agricultural losses dragged down the rest of the economy despite greatly increased investment. Consumer shortages persisted. In fact, consumer output actually fell, despite Gorbachev's calls for greater labour productivity. The new leadership has been quick to make senior-level personnel changes but has been loth to challenge the long-term interests of the powerful bureaucracies in its economic programme. As a first step Gorbachev has stepped up the worker productivity campaign, begun by his predecessors, in an attempt to stimulate the economy. He replaced a number of economic ministers, including the Chairman of the Council of Ministers and the chiefs of the construction, service and machine building sectors. Many of his new economic managers have been recruited from the defence sector, including the Ministerial Chairman Ryzhkov.
   The above short-term measures are intended to be followed by an ambitious plan to replace one third of the capital stock by 1990. Over 200 bn roubles in capital investment has been committed between 1986 and 1990 for 'modernizing and technically re-equipping production'. Gorbachev has hinted at some organizational changes, none of which is widespread, nor do they challenge major bureaucratic interests.
   Gorbachev's first Five Year Plan (1986-90) calls for 3.5% annual growth in National Income (a measure similar to GNP used by Soviet economists). A 7-8% growth rate in the machine building sector (focused primarily on the electronics, computer and machine tool industries) is intended to boost total industrial output by 4.5% each year. Ryzhkov announced major investment increases for the energy and machine building sectors, and lesser increases for agriculture and consumer investment. Apparently, the Politburo has not finalized the difficult allocation choices. Most of the planned increases in fixed investment are scheduled for 1986. Gorbachev intends to increase investment in civilian machinery and energy by 30% in 1986. lt is unlikely that these rates can be sustained for very long. In the wake of the Chernobyl disaster, the leadership may be forced to spend even more than planned on its nuclear energy programme. The collapse of prices for petroleum, which the USSR produces mostly from relatively low-cost Siberian oil fields, cut foreign earnings used for investment by $5-7 billion.
   In the near term (1986-9) the lack of investment should not restrain defence production, according to several American and European studies. A study released by the Joint Economic Committee states, 'in view of the immense sunk costs for plant and installed equipment in the defence production facilities, and the fact that these cannot be readily converted to civilian use, the industrial modernization goals are unlikely significantly to impede the completion of the major deployments of strategic weapons that the Soviets have programmed through the 1980s'. Full-scale production lines are producing the newest generation of Soviet weapons systems including, T-80 tanks, cruise missiles, Su-27 fighters, the Blackjack bomber, and the SS-25 ICBM.
   The Soviet military appears to support Gorbachev's economic plans, because it will ultimately benefit from any technological advances. The Deputy Minister for military procurement has complained that the poor performance of the civilian economy is a threat to military procurement objectives. lt appears that investment allocations will only affect defence at the margins over the next few years. Therefore it seems that the Soviet Union is likely to be well placed to continue its vigorous military modernization programme up to the end of the decade by means of qualitative change, without major new investment, while simultaneously expanding and improving the civilian sector.

   Стратегические силы
   После кажущейся паузы, отмеченной в Военном балансе 1985-1986 годов, доклады о советских стратегических силах показывают основные события во всех основных категориях вооружений. Хотя число пусковых установок МБР остается на уровне 1398, 72 из самых ранних версий SS-11 были заменены на SS-25, которые развертываются в подразделениях по 9 пусковых установок на бывших объектах МБР SS-7. Одна боеголовка SS-11 имела расчетную мощность 950 КТ; SS-25 также имеет одну боеголовку, но с расчетной мощностью 550 кт. Снижение на около 28,8 МТ в мощности более чем компенсируется возросшей точностью SS-25: как сообщается 200 метров, по сравнению с 1400 метров для SS-11 mod 1. SS-25 использует твердое топливо, что дает ему более короткое время запуска, и является мобильной. Вторая новая МБР, SS-X-24 проходит испытания и может быть развернута в ближайшее время.
   В 1985 году СССР ввел новую БРПЛ, SS-N-23. Эта ракета на жидком топливе, как утверждается, имеет дальность, аналогичную SS-N-20 (8300 км), КВО менее 900 метров и полезную нагрузку в 10 боеголовок MIRV, каждая из которых, возможно, 200 кт.
   В настоящее время на вооружении находятся две лодки Delta IV (32 БРПЛ). Четвертый Typhoon (с 20 SS-N-20) также поступил на вооружение, и две лодки Y-I были списаны. Таким образом, общая сумма ПЛАРБ остается на уровне 77, а количество ракет увеличивается на четыре до 983 (с использованием правил подсчета ОСВ общие суммы составляют 62 ПЛАРБ и 944 БРПЛ). SS-N-23 заменяет SS-N-6, который нес две боеголовки MRV, с мощностью, по разным оценкам, от 500 кт до 1 МТ. С боеголовками MIRV SS-N-23 имеет потенциал для поражения в десять раз больше целей на примерно в 2,75 раза большей дальности своего предшественника.
   Стратегическая бомбардировочная авиация показывает значительное снижение численности M-4 с 45 до 20. Об альтернативном использовании этого 30-летнего самолета пока не сообщалось. Не менее старая конструкция Ту-95 вернулась в производство, выпущено примерно 40 модели "Н", каждая из которых оснащена 6 крылатыми ракетами AS-15 (КРВБ), на пятнадцать больше, чем сообщалось в прошлом году. КРВБ AS-15 имеет дальность действия около 1800 км, скорость около 0,6 Маха и одну боеголовку мощностью 250 КТ.
   БРСД SS-4 тоже сворачивается. По состоянию на 1 июля 1986 года их насчитывалось 112, что на 8 меньше, чем в прошлом году. В настоящее время численность БРСД SS-20 составляют 441, что на 18 больше, чем за тот же период. Как представляется, из Центральной Азии было осуществлено небольшое переразвертывание примерно 36 ракет. Эти и дополнительные 18 ракет, которые были развернуты за последние 12 месяцев, в совокупности значительно увеличили развертывание ракет, которые могут поражать цели в любой точке Европы, до 270. Азиатское развертывание насчитывает около 171 ракеты, включая 162 уже развернутые на Дальнем Востоке и 9 ракет, которые, вероятно, остаются в Центральной Азии.
   Силы Общего Назначения
   Советская система старшинства: стратегические ядерные силы (СНС), Сухопутные войска (армия), ПВО, ВВС и военно-морской флот. Сообщается, что Сухопутные войска добавили в боевой порядок мотострелковую дивизию и две штурмовые бригады. в настоящее время подтверждено, что армия забрала у ВВС Советского Союза все боевые вертолеты, используемые для поддержки сухопутных войск. Это повлияло на соответствующую численность войск, показанную для каждой службы. В списке тяжелой техники указано увеличение количества основных боевых танков Т-80 и новых БТР-80. Вероятно, наблюдается тенденция к созданию более современных артиллерийских орудий на смену более ранним моделям; недостаточные данные не позволяют анализировать соответствующие цифры. Более ранний репортаж о SS-22 в качестве замены SS-12 предполагал наличие значительных визуальных (а также технических) различий между двумя видами оружия. Внешние различия незначительны, и мы соответственно перечислили новый ОТБР как "SS-12 (mod)". Никакой дополнительной информации относительно крылатой ракеты наземного базирования SSC-X-4 (КРНБ), о которой сообщалось в прошлом году, не поступало. Натовское название для SA-11 SAM- Gadfly - введено. В настоящее время SA-14 начинает заменять SA-7, а SA-X-12, явная замена SA-4, может скоро вступить в строй.
   Несмотря на ряд дополнительных сведений, мы до сих пор не смогли прояснить организацию и структуру советской службы противовоздушной обороны. То, что некоторые самолеты ПВО дислоцируются в составе Военно-Воздушных Сил военных округов, является дополнительным осложнением. Незначительное увеличение числа перехватчиков МиГ-29 и МиГ-31, по-видимому, является единственным примечательным изменением. Сообщения по-прежнему свидетельствуют о том, что старый SA-1 все еще находится в эксплуатации, хотя замена SA-10 продолжается. За последний год количество ЗРК SA-10 увеличилось примерно на 50%.
   Организация соответствующих Военно-Воздушных Сил округов была отделена от авиационных запасов. Читатели найдут приблизительные цифры в разделе развертывания, но пока не представляется возможным представить общую сводку о количестве полков по ролям. Военно-транспортное вооружение имеет оборудование, переданное вне его прямого контроля стратегическому и другим воздушным командованиям.
   Военно-морской флот продолжает испытания комбинации ПЛАРК класса Yankee с новой крылатой ракетой подводного базирования SS-NX-24 (SLCM). У нас нет никакой информации о том, что этот КРМБ находится в эксплуатации, и удаление "X" в прошлогоднем выпуске было ошибкой. СССР также проводит испытания SS-NX-21, который по своим характеристикам аналогичен американской крылатой ракете Tomahawk. В настоящее время существует три лодки класса Oscar (ПЛАРК), на одну больше, чем в 1985 году. Состоялась отставка Charlie и Echo ПЛАРК, а также Juliet, W-Long Bin и дизельных лодок Foxtrot (по одной из них). Новое производство ПЛ Kilo-class SS заменит по крайней мере некоторые из этих более поздних типов. Четвертый авианосец класса Киев, показанный на испытаниях в прошлом году, похоже, еще не в эксплуатации. Второй крейсер Слава, возможно, только вступает в строй. Сообщается еще о двух эсминцах: ракетный Современный и противолодочный Удалой; некоторые из эсминцев Kanin и Kotlin, возможно, сняты. Военно-морские авиационные силы увеличились на 20 Ту-22М и более Ту-16. Закупка включает в себя ряд боевых кораблей-амфибий.
   Наша оценка возможного развертывания остается такой же, как и в 1985 году. И вновь мы хотели бы получить комментарии. В целом, однако, мы видим, что Советский Союз в целом поддерживает программы закупок своих сил, которые ведут к неуклонному повышению качества. Как представляется, крупных прорывов не произошло, хотя более сложные системы вооружения, такие, как самолеты, продолжают демонстрировать все большую изощренность.
   Оборонные расходы
   Расходы на оборону в Советском Союзе, официально объявленные правительством, в 1970-е годы оставались стабильными или несколько сократились. В 1981-1984 годах они были заморожена на уровне 17,054 млрд рублей (23,065 млрд долларов). Но в сентябре 1984 года министр финансов СССР Василий Гарбузов объявил об увеличении на 11,8% официальных расходов на оборону за 1985 год до 19,063 млрд рублей (22,257 млрд долларов). Хотя целью крупнейшего в мирное время военного бюджета СССР является, по словам Гарбузова, "повышение боеготовности наших Вооруженных сил, способных дать сокрушительный отпор любому агрессору", советское руководство не раскрывало, какие военные программы требуют дополнительных средств. Это крупнейшее ежегодное увеличение расходов на оборону за последние двадцать пять лет было представлено как взвешенная реакция на недавнее увеличение американских расходов на оборону. Однако в 1986 году СССР заморозил уровень официальных расходов на оборону на уровне 19,063 млрд рублей.; в сочетании с предложениями по контролю над вооружениями в 1986 году это не только отражает новый внешнеполитический подход Москвы, но и выглядит как экономический сигнал о том, что ее оборонное бремя не должно увеличиваться.
   Почти все западные наблюдатели полагают, что однострочные официальные данные советской обороны часто недооценивают фактические расходы в несколько раз, и что СССР последовательно опережает США в течение последнего десятилетия. Большинство наблюдателей считают, что фактические военные расходы составляют 12-17% от советского ВВП. Некоторые несекретные сметы расходов на оборону приводятся в таблице на следующей странице. Большинство тех, кто производит оценки или "временные ряды", предполагают стабильный, устойчивый рост общих расходов на оборону в диапазоне 2-4% с середины 1970-х годов. Согласно 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 3-5% в 1982-1985 годах.
   Широко распространены разногласия относительно того, какие программы следует включить в определение советских расходов на оборону. Многие западные наблюдатели считают, что СССР включает гражданскую космическую программу, силы внутренней безопасности, военно-строительные войска и гражданскую оборону в свою концепцию "национальной обороны". Но оценки, основанные на этом более широком определении (которые не включены в нижеследующую таблицу), не сопоставимы с определениями западных оборонных расходов и будут, как правило, показывать более высокие советские оборонные расходы.
   Таб
   Западные советологи используют две основные методологии для расчета советских оборонных расходов. Некоторые неправительственные аналитики изучают опубликованные бюджетные документы и включают военные расходы в статьи, не связанные с обороной. Большинство аналитиков - в том числе ЦРУ США, РУМО США и британского Министерства обороны - оценивают советские закупки, RDT&E, O&M, расходы на персонал и т. д. индивидуально в рублях или долларах, а затем конвертировать в другой. Рубли используются для обозначения оборонной нагрузки на советскую экономику, а доллары облегчают сравнение с американскими программами. Методологии составления таких правительственных оценок публикуются редко. Как ЦРУ, так и РУМО собирают исходные данные и проводят косвенный экономический анализ для расчета затрат СССР на производство материалов для оборонных объектов в долларах и рублях.
   Что касается закупок, то они оценивают объемы производства, а затем оценивают уровень расходов исходя из того, сколько будет стоить производство аналогичного оружия на Западе в долларах. Например, удельная цена и оценка производства танка Т-80 составляют 1,2-1,6 млн долл. (1982: 400 шт.); танка Т-72 1,0-1,3 млн долл. (1982: 1000 шт.); БМП-2 0,3-0,45 млн долл. (1982: 4000 шт.). С этим методом возникают очевидные трудности. Производственная статистика должна основываться в первую очередь на фотографической разведке, и существует много пробелов в информации. Отсутствует информация об экспорте оружия, а также о структуре резервных запасов. Оценки производственных затрат не могут точно отражать истинную структуру расходов на закупки, поскольку затраты на ресурсы и конверсию доллара в рубль трудно поддаются количественной оценке и, что более важно, советские цели закупок устанавливаются в реальном выражении без строгого требования, чтобы денежные цены совпадали с реальными затратами на товары и услуги.
   Сообщается, что за последние десять лет затраты на личный состав выросли на 2% в год. Что касается расходов на личный состав, то они рассчитаны на основе известных ставок окладов военнослужащих, структуры званий и шкал пайков. Они достаточно надежны, но трудно оценить затраты на поддержку личного состава. Советские отчеты о НИОКР являются, по словам ЦРУ, "наименее надежными", а оценки примерно основаны на советских бюджетных ассигнованиях на науку. Академия наук управляет военными НИОКР и, предположительно, финансирует их, а планирование, разработка и производство осуществляются на основе сложных межведомственных связей между Министерством обороны, Госпланом, Академией наук, Советом Министров и производственными министерствами. Считается, что программы НИОКР соответствуют масштабам американских усилий, включая космическую оборону и наземную технологию ПРО. Счета НИОКР обычно оцениваются в зависимости от оценок закупок и людских ресурсов; точные расходы на топливо и техническое обслуживание отсутствуют. С 1976 года оценочные затраты на НИОКР ежегодно увеличивались на 3-4%, однако опубликованные данные по счетам НИОКР и НИОКР минимальны.
   Трудности, связанные с оценками обменных курсов, рассматривались в предыдущих изданиях Военного баланса. Большинство наблюдателей считают, что современные методологии запятнаны элементом институциональной предвзятости, тенденцией к зеркальному отражению микроэкономических явлений, ограниченным пониманием бюджетного процесса СССР и Военно-промышленной политики, а также ограниченным числом советских исследовательских программ за пределами разведывательного сообщества.*
   С тех пор как ЦРУ впервые опубликовало свои оценки советских расходов на оборону в 1974 году, оно трижды пересматривало свою методологию, и эти изменения вызвали некоторую путаницу в средствах массовой информации. В 1976 году в результате получения новой информации, свидетельствующей о том, что объемы производства в оборонной промышленности были значительно ниже, чем предполагалось, была произведена переоценка затрат на оборону в советских рублях. В результате его оценка советских расходов на оборону в рублях была удвоена, хотя долларовые оценки остались неизменными. Во втором пересмотре в 1983 году (часть переоценки оценок 1979-1981 годов, которая ранее предполагала, что советские расходы на оборону растут со скоростью 4-5% в год) ЦРУ пересмотрело свою методологию, решив, что темпы поставок вооружения были ниже, чем ожидалось. В результате как долларовые, так и рублевые оценки расходов были пересмотрены с учетом темпов роста в 2% в год. В этом году ЦРУ обновило свою ценовую базу с 1970 по 1982 годы. Новая система ценообразования принципиально не меняет оценки агентством советских оборонных расходов; разница лишь в том, что военные расходы в ценах 1982 года отражают большую долю экономики (15-17%), чем в ценах 1970 года (13-16%). Новая оценка оборонной нагрузки совместима с анализом РУМО и предполагает, что инфляция в военном секторе выше, чем в экономике в целом.
   Долларовые и рублевые оценки РУМО указываются в текущих, а не постоянных валютных показателях. РУМО считает, что советские оборонные расходы примерно удвоились между 1970 и 1981 годами, и в своих последних отчетах предполагает, что советские оборонные расходы увеличивались примерно на 5% ежегодно с 1983 года. Как ЦРУ, так и РУМО предупреждают, что любая оценка валютных расходов будет подвергнута пересмотру и что существует приблизительно пятилетний ЛАГ, прежде чем текущие оценки могут быть полностью подтверждены и оценены.
   РУМО и ЦРУ согласны, что советский бюджет на закупки ежегодно увеличивался на 1% с 1975 по 1981 год. По оценкам РУМО, основанным на ценах на 250 основных систем вооружения, расходы на закупки в 1981-1986 годах ежегодно увеличивались на 3-5%. ЦРУ, оценки которого измеряют общий объем закупок, утверждает, что в последнее время закупочные ресурсы стагнируют. Исходя из этих последних оценок, американские расходы на закупки превзошли советские расходы на закупки в 1984 году. Некоторые наблюдатели с некоторой иронией отмечают, что, несмотря на значительные (но сужающиеся) технологические различия между Советской и американской системами, СССР удалось произвести более чем в два раза больше, чем США, используя гораздо меньшие темпы роста закупок.
   Оборона и советская экономика при Горбачеве
   Придя к власти, Михаил Горбачев унаследовал ряд сильных сторон второй по величине экономики в мире: нефтедобычу и добычу железной руды, производство стали и цемента, станкостроение - все это превосходит американскую продукцию.
   Рост ВНП в 1985f составил 2,6% второй год подряд. Год начался с одной из самых холодных зим в истории, которая выявила серьезные транспортные и производственные узкие места. Промышленное производство выросло во втором полугодии до 2,8% годовых. Однако, несмотря на значительное увеличение инвестиций, сельскохозяйственные потери затянули остальную экономику. Дефицит потребителей сохранялся. На самом деле потребительский выпуск фактически упал, несмотря на призывы Горбачева к повышению производительности труда. Новое руководство быстро осуществило кадровые изменения на высоком уровне, но не бросило вызов долгосрочным интересам могущественной бюрократии в своей экономической программе. В качестве первого шага Горбачев активизировал кампанию производительности труда, начатую его предшественниками, в попытке стимулировать экономику. Он сменил ряд министров экономики, в том числе председателя Совета Министров и начальников секторов строительства, обслуживания и машиностроения. Многие из его новых экономических руководителей были набраны из оборонного сектора, в том числе председатель Совета Министров Рыжков.
   Вышеуказанные краткосрочные меры предполагают осуществление амбициозного плана по замене одной трети основного капитала к 1990 году. В период 1986-1990 годов на "модернизацию и техническое перевооружение производства" было выделено свыше 200 млрд рублей капиталовложений. Горбачев намекнул на некоторые организационные изменения, ни одно из которых не является широко распространенным, и они не бросают вызов основным бюрократическим интересам.
   Первый пятилетний план Горбачева (1986-1990 годы) предусматривает ежегодный рост национального дохода на 3,5% (показатель, аналогичный ВНП, используемому советскими экономистами). Темпы роста 7-8% в машиностроительном секторе (ориентированном в первую очередь на электронику, компьютерную и станкостроительную промышленность) призваны ежегодно увеличивать общий объем промышленного производства на 4,5%. Рыжков объявил о значительном увеличении инвестиций в энергетику и машиностроение, меньшем - в сельское хозяйство и потребительские инвестиции. По-видимому, Политбюро не завершило сложный выбор распределения. Большая часть запланированного увеличения инвестиций в основной капитал запланирована на 1986 год. Горбачев намерен увеличить инвестиции в гражданскую технику и энергетику на 30% в 1986 году. Маловероятно, что эти темпы могут сохраняться очень долго. После Чернобыльской катастрофы руководство может быть вынуждено потратить на свою ядерно-энергетическую программу даже больше, чем планировалось. Обвал цен на нефть, которую СССР добывает в основном из относительно недорогих сибирских нефтяных месторождений, сократил иностранные доходы, используемые для инвестиций, на 5-7 миллиардов долларов.
   В ближайшей перспективе (1986-1989 годы) отсутствие инвестиций не должно сдерживать оборонное производство, согласно ряду американских и европейских исследований. В исследовании, опубликованном Объединенным экономическим комитетом, говорится: "ввиду огромных затрат на установку оборудования на объектах оборонного производства и того факта, что они не могут быть легко преобразованы в гражданское использование, цели промышленной модернизации вряд ли существенно помешают завершению крупных развертываний стратегических вооружений, которые советы запрограммировали до 1980-х годов". Полномасштабные производственные линии выпускают новейшее поколение советских систем вооружения, включая танки Т-80, крылатые ракеты, истребители Су-27, бомбардировщик Blackjack и МБР SS -25.

DEPLOYMENT (all Services):
Soviet strategic planning envisages three major Strategic Theatres (GTVD: Western, Southern, Far Eastern), comprising 5 regional Theatres (TVD: North-Western Western, South-Western; Southern: Far Eastern); perhaps 4 associated Oceanic Theatres (OTVD: Atlantic, Arctic; Indian, Pacific); 3 Sea Theatres (Baltic, Black Sea and Mediterranean); and a Central Reserve. Forces within these Theatres are centrally controlled and co-ordinated, integrating all the elements assigned to the operational mission. The deployments shown for strategic SLBM, ICBM and strategic bomber forces and for AB divs reflect their physical location, but control of them is exercised centrally by the Supreme High Command. A possible assignment, of necessity speculative, of known forces follows (average strengths, excl units, ships and ac in reserve; eqpt strengths based on typical organizational establishments):

The Alliances and Europe

  

THE WARSAW PACT

   There are indications that a degree of modernization is taking place within the East European armies. Though numbers are not available, Czechoslovakia and East Germany are reported as having begun to receive SS-21 to replace their FROG-7. Bulgaria and East Germany appear to have received additional Scud SSM. Bulgaria and Hungary show increases in their T-72 MBT holdings and the Romanian M-77 variant of the T-55 is now believed to be in the inventory in significant numbers. Bulgaria is now thought to have the SA-13 SAM. We include the Polish Internal Security Forces - a 'Home Guard' element in this year's presentation. This force has been known to exist for some time but its size and relationship with the rest of the defence establishment was not clearly understood.
   There have been a number of minor changes in the respective naval inventories. Poland's SAM Kotlin destroyer is reported to be out of service; East Germany has added a third Rostock (Koni-class)frigate. The six elderly Hai patrol craft in the East German Navy have been retired and partially replaced by three Tarantul which carry four SS-N-8 SSM. Some of the oldest East German and Polish fast attack craft were being withdrawn. East Germany has retired three Osa-I missile boats and Poland one. Each has also retired, respectively, one Libelle and thirteen Pilica torpedo boats.
   The East European Air Forces entries have also shown changes. Bulgaria and East Germany now have a full squadron of Mi-14 ASW helicopters each. Bulgaria is reducing its MiG-17 inventory and has increased its MiG-23 FGA and fighter fleets by almost two squadrons-worth. Its MiG-21 interceptor inventory has also been enlarged. Czechoslovakia appears slowly to be phasing out its Su-7; its Su-25 Frogfoot squadron is now believed to be operational (this is one of two non-Soviet Pact deployments of this type). East Germany has phased out its MiG-17 FGA, replacing them with Su-20. Total numbers are lower as the new types are phased in. East Germany also appears to have reduced its numbers of interceptors. As in most of the Pact fighter/interceptor forces it has been difficult to assess the numbers of squadrons by type and, while we believe modernization is taking place, its extent is not easy to determine. Earlier assessments of the Hungarian holdings of MiG-23 interceptors may have been too high. That Air Force, however, has taken on a new role with the introduction of a squadron of Su-25 Frogfoot, the second such deployment within the Pact. Poland, also, is reducing its inventory of MiG-17; the replacement is the Su-22. The exception to this pattern is Romania, which seems to have increased its MiG-17 FGA inventory; it also appears to have added to its MiG-23 interceptor total.
   This modernization, though modest, does represent an enhancement of the overall capabilities of the forces concerned. They still, however, remain significantly less well equipped than the Soviet Union's Forces in Eastern Europe.
   Economic Trends in 1985
   In 1984 economic growth in the six Warsaw Pact countries rose by over 5%, a substantial improvement over the 2% fall in Net Material Product (NMP) in 1981, but the performance was not repeated in 1985 when NMP grew by only 3.5%. Furthermore, the growth rate of industrial output declined from 4.8% in 1984 to around 4% in 1985. This modest fall suggests that the largest sector of these economies did not perform as badly as many Western observers claimed.
   The unusually severe winter of 1984/5 affected electricity and coal production and disrupted transport services. Czechoslovakia and the GDR apart, all countries had energy shortages of varying degrees (Romania was badly affected for the second year running) and this was reflected in a particularly poor performance by the six in the first quarter of 1985.
   The shortfall in energy supply and the adverse climatic conditions -in addition to the effects of cold, Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania were also affected by drought -translated into a decline in manufacturing and a more marked drop in agricultural output, which led in turn, to a reduction of surplus goods available for export and so to a shortfall of hard currency for imports. Furthermore, the East European countries met greater competition in world markets from third-world producers, and the decline in economic activity in Western economies also had a negative effect on export opportunities. The slower growth in domestic production was paralleled by a smaller increase in imports. lt also appears that trade amongst East European countries grew at a slower pace, which might partly reflect attempts by the Soviet Union to reduce its balance of trade surplus with its partners.
   The factors mentioned above had an inhibiting effect on Warsaw Pact economies in the short run, but in the medium and long term additional problems affect them. East European industrial output is characterized by very high energy/raw material/labour inputs per unit of output, a slow growth in the rate of labour productivity, and diminishing capital productivity (as measured by NMP/fixed assets).
   The new dawn expected by Western observers as a result of the changed leadership in Moscow will be a long time coming, though it is considered to be an essential prerequisite for economic advancement and improving living standards. The Soviet Union appeared to be making progress in this direction in the first quarter of 1986, and it is clear that substantial encouragement has been given to its partners to improve the quality and level of their output, and to achieve a greater degree of integration and specialization in production. Of paramount importance is the better utilization of capital resources, including the creation of new plant where necessary (though, more importantly by modernizing existing plant), and trying to hasten the introduction of new technologies and production methods.
   The Chernobyl disaster in late April 1986 will have negative repercussions on Warsaw Pact economies and will delay the ambitious plans set out in the latest Five Year Programmes (FYPs). All these countries have been affected by restrictions imposed on their agricultural exports and are likely to suffer from a decrease in tourist flows - an increasingly important source of hard currency, particularly for the Balkan countries.
   The achievements of the different countries over the FYP 1981-85 were varied. Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia came close to their NMP targets -and the former's performance might have been substantially better, had it not been for the bad winter of 1984/5 and poor agricultural returns both in 1983 and 1985. Romania, surprisingly, was the second best achiever (to the GDR) in NMP terms, but Hungary only attained half the annual NMP growth rate prescribed in the FYP. Poland's results were in line with the FYP for 1983-85, but (for all that this represented an improvement over the crisis years of 1978-82) NMP in 1985 was still below that of 1978. The German Democratic Republic continues to outperform the other economies, with a steady annual rate of NMP growth, as opposed to its partners' oscilating records.
   The new set of FYPs aims at major increases in output, to be gained by more efficient resource allocation - energy, raw materials, plant and labour - moving from extensive towards intensive economic development by means of changes in management and planning structures.
   Leaders have called for investment growth above that of consumption and the rebuilding and upgrading of existing plant, rather than investment in new productive equipment. In the short run, most Warsaw Pact countries, including the Soviet Union, could make important gains by improving existing infrastructure. It has been suggested that this 'modernization' process will require increased Western technology imports, but these will be limited by the availability of convertible currencies. These countries may prefer joint projects with Western firms, with a view to exporting part of the output to obtain hard currency. They are likely also to expand intra-Pact co-operation in industrial production aimed at improving standardization and quality of output.
   Improvements in standards of living have been emphasized in the new batch of FYPs and clearly are a pivotal part of the medium- and long-term economic and social development strategies of Warsaw Pact countries. If the generally perceived degree of inefficiency believed to pertain in the East European economies actually exists, then small but pervasive changes to managerial practices and planning methods should go a long way towards achieving the improvements sought over the next five years.
  

ВАРШАВСКИЙ ДОГОВОР

   Есть признаки того, что в восточноевропейских армиях происходит определенная модернизация. Несмотря на отсутствие цифр, Чехословакия и Восточная Германия, по сообщениям, начали получать SS-21 взамен своего FROG-7. Болгария и Восточная Германия, по-видимому, получили дополнительные БР Scud. Болгария и Венгрия демонстрируют увеличение числа танков Т-72, а румынский вариант Т-55 М-77 в настоящее время, как полагают, находится на службе в значительном количестве. В настоящее время считается, что Болгария имеет ЗРК SA-13. Мы включаем польские силы внутренней безопасности - элемент "внутренней охраны" в презентацию этого года. Известно, что эти силы существуют уже в течение некоторого времени, однако их численность и взаимоотношения с остальной частью сил обороны не были четко определены.
   В соответствующих Военно-Морских Силах произошел ряд незначительных изменений. Сообщается, что польский эсминец SAM Kotlin выведен из состава; Восточная Германия добавила третий фрегат Rostock (класса Koni). Шесть старых патрульных кораблей ВМС Восточной Германии были выведены и частично заменены тремя Tarantul, которые несут четыре SSM SS-N-8. Некоторые из старейших восточногерманских и польских быстроходных ударных кораблей были выведены. Восточная Германия сняла три ракетных катера Osa-I, а Польша - один. Каждый из них также снял, соответственно, один Libelle и тринадцать торпедных катеров Pilica.
   Восточноевропейские ВВС также продемонстрировали изменения. Болгария и Восточная Германия теперь имеют полную эскадрилью противолодочных вертолетов Ми-14 каждая. Болгария сокращает численность МиГ-17 и увеличивает число Миг-23 и истребительный флот почти на две эскадрильи. Увеличен и арсенал перехватчиков МиГ-21. Чехословакия, по-видимому, постепенно сворачивает свой Су-7; ее эскадрилья Су-25 теперь считается действующей (это одно из двух развертываний этого типа, не связанных с Советским пактом). Восточная Германия отказалась от своих МиГ-17, заменив их Су-20. По мере постепенного внедрения новых типов общее число уменьшается. Восточная Германия, по-видимому, также сократила число перехватчиков. Как и в большинстве истребительных сил пакта, было трудно оценить количество эскадрилий по типам, и, хотя мы считаем, что модернизация происходит, ее масштабы нелегко определить. Более ранние оценки венгерских перехватчиков МиГ-23, возможно, были слишком высоки. Эта авиация, однако, взяла на себя новую роль с введением эскадрильи Су-25, второго такого развертывания в рамках пакта. Польша также сокращает свои МиГ-17; на замену идет Су-22. Исключением из этой схемы является Румыния, которая, по-видимому, увеличила число МиГ-17; она также, по-видимому, добавила к своему общему количеству перехватчиков МиГ-23.
   Эта модернизация, хотя и скромная, представляет собой укрепление общего потенциала соответствующих сил. Однако они по-прежнему значительно хуже оснащены, чем силы Советского Союза в Восточной Европе.
   Экономические тенденции 1985 года
   В 1984 году экономический рост в шести странах Варшавского договора вырос более чем на 5%, что является существенным улучшением по сравнению с 2% падением чистого материального продукта (NMP) в 1981 году, но показатели не повторились в 1985 году, когда NMP вырос всего на 3,5%. Кроме того, темпы роста промышленного производства снизились с 4,8% в 1984 году до около 4% в 1985 году. Это скромное падение говорит о том, что самый крупный сектор экономики этих стран показал себя не так плохо, как утверждали многие западные наблюдатели.
   Необычно суровая зима 1984/5 года сказалась на производстве электроэнергии и угля и нарушила работу транспортных служб. Если не считать Чехословакии и ГДР, все страны испытывали в той или иной степени нехватку энергии (Румыния серьезно пострадала второй год подряд), и это нашло отражение в особенно плохих показателях шести стран в первом квартале 1985 года.
   Нехватка энергоресурсов и неблагоприятные климатические условия - в дополнение к последствиям холодов на Болгарию, Венгрию и Румынию также повлияла засуха - привели к сокращению производства и более заметному сокращению сельскохозяйственного производства, что, в свою очередь, привело к сокращению излишков товаров, доступных для экспорта, и, таким образом, к дефициту твердой валюты для импорта. Кроме того, восточноевропейские страны сталкиваются с усилением конкуренции на мировых рынках со стороны производителей из стран третьего мира, а снижение экономической активности в западных странах также негативно сказывается на экспортных возможностях. Замедление роста внутреннего производства сопровождалось меньшим увеличением импорта. Представляется также, что торговля между восточноевропейскими странами росла более медленными темпами, что может частично отражать попытки Советского Союза сократить сальдо торгового баланса со своими партнерами.
   Упомянутые выше факторы в краткосрочной перспективе оказали тормозящее воздействие на экономику стран Варшавского договора, однако в среднесрочной и долгосрочной перспективе на них влияют дополнительные проблемы. Промышленное производство в Восточной Европе характеризуется очень высокими затратами энергии/сырья/рабочей силы на единицу продукции, медленным ростом производительности труда и снижением производительности капитала (измеряемой NMP/основными средствами).
   Новый рассвет, ожидаемый западными наблюдателями в результате смены руководства в Москве, наступит еще не скоро, хотя он считается важной предпосылкой для экономического прогресса и повышения уровня жизни. Советский Союз, как представляется, добился прогресса в этом направлении в первом квартале 1986 года, и очевидно, что его партнерам была оказана существенная поддержка в повышении качества и уровня их продукции, а также в достижении большей степени интеграции и специализации в производстве. Первостепенное значение имеет более эффективное использование капитальных ресурсов, в том числе создание нового завода там, где это необходимо (хотя, что более важно, модернизация существующего завода), и попытка ускорить внедрение новых технологий и методов производства.
   Чернобыльская катастрофа в конце апреля 1986 года будет иметь негативные последствия для экономики стран Варшавского договора и приведет к задержке осуществления амбициозных планов, изложенных в последних пятилетних программах. Все эти страны пострадали от ограничений, введенных в отношении их сельскохозяйственного экспорта, и, вероятно, пострадают от сокращения туристических потоков - все более важного источника твердой валюты, особенно для балканских стран.
   Достижения различных стран за период 1981-1985 годов были различными. Болгария и Чехословакия приблизились к своим целям NMP - и результаты первого могли бы быть значительно лучше, если бы не плохая зима 1984/5 и плохая сельскохозяйственная отдача как в 1983, так и в 1985 годах. Румыния, как это ни удивительно, была второй страной, добившейся наилучших результатов (по сравнению с ГДР) в плане NMP, однако Венгрия достигла лишь половины ежегодных темпов роста NMP, предписанных в пятилетнем плане. Результаты Польши соответствовали пятилетнему плану за 1983-1985 годы, но (при всем том, что это представляло собой улучшение по сравнению с кризисными годами 1978-1982 годов) NMP в 1985 году все еще был ниже 1978 года. Германская Демократическая Республика по-прежнему опережает другие страны с устойчивыми годовыми темпами роста ВНП, в отличие от рекордных показателей своих партнеров.
   Новый комплекс пятилетних планов нацелен на значительное увеличение объема производства, которое должно быть достигнуто за счет более эффективного распределения ресурсов - энергии, сырья, растений и рабочей силы - путем перехода от экстенсивного к интенсивному экономическому развитию посредством изменений в структурах управления и планирования.
   Лидеры призвали к росту инвестиций выше уровня потребления и восстановлению и модернизации существующих предприятий, а не к инвестированию в новое производственное оборудование. В краткосрочной перспективе большинство стран Варшавского договора, включая Советский Союз, могли бы добиться значительных успехов путем улучшения существующей инфраструктуры. Было высказано предположение, что этот процесс модернизации потребует увеличения импорта западных технологий, но они будут ограничены наличием конвертируемых валют. Эти страны могут предпочесть совместные проекты с западными фирмами в целях экспорта части продукции для получения твердой валюты. Они, вероятно, также расширят сотрудничество внутри пакта в области промышленного производства, направленное на повышение стандартизации и качества продукции.
   Повышение уровня жизни было подчеркнуто в новой серии пятилетних планов и, несомненно, является одним из ключевых элементов среднесрочных и долгосрочных стратегий экономического и социального развития стран Варшавского договора. Если общепризнанная степень неэффективности, которая, как считается, присуща восточноевропейским странам, действительно существует, то небольшие, но всепроникающие изменения в управленческой практике и методах планирования должны в значительной степени способствовать достижению желаемых улучшений в течение следующих пяти лет.

THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY

   Many European NATO nations show a slight decline in uniformed manpower compared with 1985. The exceptions are West Germany, Greece and Turkey which have increased overall. With regard to the ground forces, British, Canadian, French and West German forces, combine to show a slight rise in the total for Northern Europe. Increases by both Greece and Turkey show a more marked enhancement in the south. That increase is due more to the dispute between them than to NATO requirements.
   Minor changes in the divisional structures have led to small increases in the divisional totals; these are largely organizational and do not reflect any greater capability.
   Main Battle Tank strength in the Northern and Central sectors has increased by perhaps 2%. The retirement of the elderly British carrier Hermes is noted, as is the commissioning of Italy's Garibaldi; the inter-service dispute over the aircraft the latter is to carry has not yet been resolved. Totals for all other categories of surface vessels show slight reductions. Combat aircraft totals, on the other hand, show significant increases in all categories, marking the progress of a number of major procurement programmes.
   Budgetary constraints continue to have a major impact on defence, not least because they are forcing governments toward greater international collaboration, as a way of getting better value for money. A number of new joint programmes have been announced. These include studies into a 12-country Precision Guided Missile project; a 7-country Modular Stand-Off Weapon; a multi-function information distribution systems; a common NATO Identification System (11 countries); computer language commonality; Stand-Off Radar; Surveillance and Target Acquisition; and some 13 others. Standardization makes only slow progress but agreement has been reached on a common fuel for jet aircraft. Although such agreements are often confined to minor systems and support functions, joint arrangements are in hand for a new European fighter aircraft (EFA), ASW helicopters, and Tripartite Mine Counter-Measures vessels (MCMV) and there are signs of movement toward common European combat and transport helicopter programmes.
   NATO anticipates European production in 1986 of 500 tanks, some 400 other Armoured Fighting Vehicles, 100 artillery and field rocket pieces, 550 Milan and TOW ATGW and 800 SAM for the ground forces. New European naval procurement plans include a carrier, three submarines, four destroyers, ten mine warfare vessels, one landing ship and six landing craft. The Tornado and F-16 programmes continue, with a total of 180 planned; procurement of 70 other aircraft include tankers and Airborne Early Warning (AEW).
   Following the severe recession of the early 1980s, NATO Europe continues to enjoy modest GDP growth, averaging 2.3% in 1985. The GDPs of Canada, Norway and Turkey grew at a rate of over 4%, while Great Britain followed with about 3.5%; France (1.0%), Greece (1.5%), and Belgium (1.7%) did less well, with the others ranging between 2 and 3%. (The United States also achieved 2.3%, but this represented a significant decline from the 6.6% growth achieved in 1984.)
   Europe's success in fighting inflation is uneven. Inflation in 1985 ranged from 2.2% in West Germany and the Netherlands to as high as 45% in Turkey. Greece and Portugal had rates approaching 20%. The other states showed figures of 4.9% (Belgium and Denmark), 5.7% and 5.8% (Norway and France), 6.1% (Britain) and almost 9% (Spain). This relative success is due in part to monetary and fiscal policies but in part also to the decline in the prices of oil and other key commodities.
   Most western countries face increasing government debt and mounting interest rates, incurred in part because of the oil price rises in the late 1970s and increasing military outlays in the 1980s. In 1979 NATO countries had committed themselves to an annual real increase of 3% in defence outlays, but only a few states have managed to sustain the commitment. After the recession of 1980-82 (when GDP growth rates were in most cases either negative or negligible), real defence growth in the face of spiralling social costs became for many countries politically unsustainable. Despite this, half of NATO's members were able to increase defence outlays until 1986, when Britain and West Germany and even the US were forced to reduce their defence outlays - in the case of the latter two countries to zero or even negative real growth.
   On the positive side, the drastic decline in oil prices and the appreciation of the European currencies against the US dollar has had a stimulating effect on European economies. If oil prices remain at $10-15 a barrel, many European economies should experience a GDP increase of 3-4%. Britain, however, may experience a serious short-term current account deficit, while Norway (dependent on oil sales for 22% of government income) seems likely to experience serious fiscal problems.
   In the face of these trends, it is most unlikely that the major European NATO members will significantly increase their defence outlays.

ОРГАНИЗАЦИЯ СЕВЕРОАТЛАНТИЧЕСКОГО ДОГОВОРА

   (2)
   Многие европейские страны НАТО демонстрируют небольшое сокращение численности военнослужащих по сравнению с 1985 годом. Исключение составляют Западная Германия, Греция и Турция, которые в целом увеличились. Что касается сухопутных войск, то британские, канадские, французские и западногерманские силы, объединившись, демонстрируют незначительный рост общей численности в Северной Европе. Увеличение как Греции, так и Турции свидетельствует о более заметном увеличении на юге. Это увеличение объясняется скорее спором между ними, чем требованиями НАТО.
   Незначительные изменения в структурах отделов привели к незначительному увеличению общих показателей по отделам; они носят в основном организационный характер и не отражают каких-либо больших возможностей.
   Численность основных боевых танков в Северном и Центральном секторах увеличилась, возможно, на 2%. Отмечается списание старого британского авианосца Hermes, а также ввод в эксплуатацию итальянского Garibaldi; спор между службами по поводу самолета, который последний должен нести, еще не решен. Общие данные по всем другим категориям надводных судов свидетельствуют о незначительном сокращении. С другой стороны, общее количество боевых самолетов значительно возросло по всем категориям, что свидетельствует о прогрессе в осуществлении ряда крупных программ закупок.
   Бюджетные ограничения по-прежнему оказывают серьезное воздействие на оборону, не в последнюю очередь потому, что они вынуждают правительства расширять международное сотрудничество в целях повышения эффективности использования средств. Был объявлен ряд новых совместных программ. К их числу относятся исследования по проекту создания 12-ю странами высокоточной управляемой ракеты; 7-ю странами модульного боевого оружия; многофункциональных систем распространения информации; общей системы идентификации НАТО (11 стран); общности компьютерного языка; автономного радиолокатора; наблюдения и обнаружения целей; и еще 13 исследований. Стандартизация идет медленными темпами, но достигнута договоренность об общем топливе для реактивных самолетов. Хотя такие соглашения часто ограничиваются незначительными системами и вспомогательными функциями, имеются совместные договоренности в отношении нового европейского истребителя (EFA), вертолетов противоминной обороны и трехсторонних судов противоминной обороны (MCMV), а также имеются признаки продвижения к осуществлению общеевропейских программ боевых и транспортных вертолетов.
   НАТО ожидает, что в 1986 году в Европе будет произведено 500 танков, около 400 других боевых бронированных машин, 100 артиллерийских и полевых ракетных установок, 550 ПТРК Milan и TOW и 800 зенитных ракет для сухопутных войск. Новые планы европейских военно-морских закупок включают в себя авианосец, три подводные лодки, четыре эсминца, десять боевых минных судов, один десантный корабль и шесть десантных судов. Программы Tornado и F-16 продолжаются, В общей сложности запланировано 180; закупка 70 других самолетов включает танкеры и самолеты раннего предупреждение (AEW).
   После тяжелой рецессии начала 1980-х годов в Европе НАТО продолжает наблюдаться умеренный рост ВВП, составивший в 1985 году в среднем 2,3%. ВВП Канады, Норвегии и Турции вырос более чем на 4%, в то время как Великобритания-примерно на 3,5%; Франция (1,0%), Греция (1,5%) и Бельгия (1,7%) добились меньших успехов, а остальные страны-от 2 до 3%. (Соединенные Штаты также достигли 2,3%, но это представляло собой значительное снижение по сравнению с ростом 6,6%, достигнутым в 1984 году.)
   Успех Европы в борьбе с инфляцией неравномерен. Инфляция в 1985 году колебалась от 2,2% в Западной Германии и Нидерландах до 45% в Турции. В Греции и Португалии ставки приближались к 20%. Другие государства дали показатели 4,9% (Бельгия и Дания), 5,7% и 5,8% (Норвегия и Франция), 6,1% (Великобритания) и почти 9% (Испания). Этот относительный успех обусловлен отчасти денежно-кредитной и фискальной политикой, а отчасти и снижением цен на нефть и другие ключевые сырьевые товары.
   Большинство западных стран сталкиваются с растущим государственным долгом и ростом процентных ставок, отчасти из-за роста цен на нефть в конце 1970-х годов и увеличения военных расходов в 1980-х годах. В 1979 году страны НАТО взяли на себя обязательства по ежегодному реальному увеличению расходов на оборону на 3%, но лишь нескольким государствам удалось сохранить это обязательство. После рецессии 1980-1982 годов (когда темпы роста ВВП в большинстве случаев были либо отрицательными, либо ничтожно малыми) реальный рост обороноспособности перед лицом спирали социальных издержек стал для многих стран политически неустойчивым. Несмотря на это, половина членов НАТО смогла увеличить расходы на оборону до 1986 года, когда Великобритания, Западная Германия и даже США были вынуждены сократить свои расходы на оборону - в случае последних двух стран до нуля или даже отрицательного реального роста.
   С положительной стороны, резкое снижение цен на нефть и повышение курса европейских валют по отношению к доллару США оказали стимулирующее воздействие на европейские экономики. Если цены на нефть останутся на уровне 10-15 долларов за баррель, то ВВП многих европейских стран должен увеличиться на 3-4%. Британия, однако, может столкнуться с серьезным краткосрочным дефицитом текущего счета, в то время как Норвегия (зависящая от продажи нефти на 22% государственного дохода), похоже, столкнется с серьезными финансовыми проблемами.
   С учетом этих тенденций маловероятно, что основные европейские члены НАТО значительно увеличат свои расходы на оборону.

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 has 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 Republic of Cyprus. Under this Treaty Britain maintains a garrison in two Sovereign Base Areas (SBAs) at Akrotiri and Dhekelia. An associated Treaty of Alliance with the Republic entitles both Greece and Turkey to maintain contingents on the island. The Turkish-Cypriot and Greek-Cypriot communities each maintain armed forces. In 1963 a constitutional dispute led the Turkish-Cypriot community to withdraw from the central government. In 1983 it formed the 'Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus'; it is this entity which is shown as 'Northern Cyprus' on p. 83. A numerical error appeared in this entry in the 1985-6 edition and has now been corrected. 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: Finland pursues a policy of neutrality. Under the 1948 Treaty of Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance, Finland is committed to repel aggression against itself 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 its needs. Its 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, it has bought arms from many sources, including 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. In 1980 Italy agreed to consult if Malta were attacked and to guarantee its independence; this agreement was not renewed (1984). In December 1981 France and Algeria also agreed to support and guarantee Maltese 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. Its self-defence organization is largely supported by a domestic defence industry but some external purchases have been made, mainly from the United States.
   Switzerland: Neutral since 1815, Switzerland belongs to no defence alliance. Its small arms industry produces most of its equipment and plays a small but significant role in exports.
   Yugoslavia: Expelled from the Cominform in 1948, Yugoslavia has since been a leading force in the Non-Aligned Movement, maintaining a balanced relationship with each Bloc. lt has no defence alliances, though a limited naval repair agreement exists with the USSR. lt has its own defence industry but has bought most of its major military equipment from the USSR.
  

ДРУГИЕ ЕВРОПЕЙСКИЕ СТРАНЫ

   Албания: Албания присоединилась к Варшавскому пакту в 1955 году, но покинула его в 1968 году, перейдя в более тесные отношения с Китаем. После смерти председателя Мао в 1976 году, китайская помощь постепенно уменьшается. С 1978 года военная помощь практически не поступала ни из каких источников. Конституция запрещает создание иностранных баз или размещение иностранных войск в Албании.
   Австрия: Конституция Австрии содержит декларацию постоянного нейтралитета. Небольшая местная оружейная промышленность удовлетворяет многие потребности Вооруженных сил и обеспечивает небольшой экспорт.
   Кипр: в 1959 году Великобритания, Греция и Турция подписали Договор о гарантиях, гарантирующий независимость, территориальную целостность и безопасность Республики Кипр. В соответствии с этим договором Британия содержит гарнизон в двух суверенных базовых районах (SBA) в Акротири и Декелии. Соответствующий Союзный договор с Республикой дает право Греции и Турции содержать контингенты на острове. Каждая из общин киприотов-турок и киприотов-греков имеет вооруженные силы. В 1963 году в результате конституционного спора кипрско-турецкая община вышла из состава центрального правительства. В 1983 году она образовала "Турецкую Республику Северного Кипра"; именно это образование показано как "Северный Кипр" на стр. 83. Числовая ошибка появилась в этой записи в издании 1985-6 годов и теперь исправлена. С 1964 года Организация Объединенных Наций размещает между общинами силы по поддержанию мира (ВСООНК). Соединенные Штаты имеют на острове связное учреждение.
   Финляндия: Финляндия проводит политику нейтралитета. В соответствии с Договором о дружбе, сотрудничестве и взаимной помощи 1948 года Финляндия обязуется отразить агрессию против себя или против СССР через территорию Финляндии. В таком случае Финляндия может, при необходимости, обратиться за помощью к СССР при условии специального соглашения. Финляндия поддерживает постоянные силы ООН по поддержанию мира и предоставляет персонал для выполнения обязанностей ООН с 1956 года. Собственная оборонная промышленность Финляндии обеспечивает почти половину ее потребностей. Его основные системы вооружения были приобретены у СССР и Швеции вместе со специальной техникой из Великобритании, Франции и Соединенных Штатов.
   Ирландия: независимая с 1922 года, Ирландия играет активную роль в миротворческих операциях ООН. Не имея значительной военной промышленности, она закупила оружие из многих источников, включая Великобританию, Францию, Швецию и США.
   Мальта: после обретения независимости в 1964 году Мальта заключила оборонное соглашение с Великобританией. Остров был базой НАТО с 1972 по 1979 год. В сентябре 1980 года Мальта обязалась сохранять нейтралитет вне любых альянсов и запретила иностранные войска и базы, включая советские военные корабли. В 1980 году Италия согласилась провести консультации в случае нападения на Мальту и гарантировать ее независимость; это соглашение не было продлено (1984 год). В декабре 1981 года Франция и Алжир также согласились поддержать и гарантировать мальтийский 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 о 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 опирается на отечественную оборонную промышленность, однако некоторые внешние закупки осуществляются, главным образом, из Соединенных Штатов.
   Швейцария: нейтральная с 1815 года, Швейцария не принадлежит ни к одному оборонному союзу. Ее стрелковая промышленность производит большую часть своего оборудования и играет небольшую, но значительную роль в экспорте.
   Югославия: изгнанная из Коминформ в 1948 году, Югославия с тех пор является ведущей силой в Движении неприсоединения, поддерживая сбалансированные отношения с каждым блоком. у lt нет оборонных союзов, хотя существует ограниченное соглашение о ремонте флота с СССР. ЛТ имеет собственную оборонную промышленность, но большую часть своей основной военной техники закупила у СССР.

The Middle East and the Mediterranean

  
   Bilateral Agreements with External Powers
   The Soviet Union signed a twenty-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. A Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation with South Yemen was ratified in February 1980, and an agreement for Joint Co-operation was signed in January 1983. Soviet units continue to use some of Aden's naval and air facilities but there is uncertainty over the status of Khormaksar air base. All three countries have received significant Soviet arms deliveries. Despite this, Iraq has tried to broaden its 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 it from Iranian territory; the USSR 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 (PDRY; 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 subsequent 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 only under strict conditions. 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 conditionally 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. lt 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 its 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 have been 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 Co-operation in November 1982 which permits exchanges of military data, specialists and supplies.
   Peace-Keeping Forces
   The United Nations (UN) withdrew the 4,000-man Emergency Force (UNEF) from the Sinai on 24 July 1979; its duties were temporarily assumed by the Truce Supervisory Organization (UNTSO), 298 officers (including Observer Group Beirut of some 50 officers). It has monitored the cease-fire on Israel's northern border since 1949. The Egyptian-Israeli border is now patrolled by the 2,642-man Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) under the Israeli-Egyptian Peace Treaty; contingents come from the US (1,186), Australia (which is being replaced by Canada in 1986) (109), Britain (37), Colombia (500), Fiji (500), France (43), Italy (90), the Netherlands (102) and Uruguay (75).
   The UN also deploys in the Golan Heights the 1,317-man Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), made up of contingents from Austria (532), Canada (226), Finland (402) and Poland (157).
   The UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) consists of some 5,827 men from France (1,391), Fiji (627), Finland (514), Ghana (690), Ireland (746), Italy (51), Nepal (800), Norway (864) and Sweden (144).
   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, initially deployed as the Arab Deterrent Force, remain in parts of northern Lebanon. Syria has reinforced its 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, exercise a measure of control over a strip of territory in the south of Lebanon.
   Algeria and Libya signed a defence agreement in 1975. Egypt and Sudan signed a joint defence agreement in 1977. The Egyptian-Sudanese 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; these are probably no longer in effect. 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. lt 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.
   Morocco has loaned forces to the UAE. Libya, South Yemen and Ethiopia formed the Aden Treaty Tripartite Alliance in 1981; it included a joint defence commitment but nothing has since been reported, and the commitment has probably lapsed. North and South Yemen have agreed in principle to a merger (1981, 1986); the details remain obscure. Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and North Yemen have announced the departure of unspecified numbers of 'volunteers' to assist Iraq in the war against Iran, but no formed units have been despatched. Iraq has stated that multinational 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 Sudan in April 1985 suggest the possibility 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 supplied 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, and more are reported as being delivered. 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 in 1979 following Egypt's rapprochement with Israel. Egypt replaced the AOI with an existing Egyptian Arab Military Industries Organization and with foreign aid. Some of this aid is from Saudi Arabia for limited specific projects. Egypt also has been entering into co-production agreements with Britain, France, the US and Yugoslavia. For their part, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE agreed in 1979 to replace the AOI with an $8-billion arms industry in the UAE. This proposal is still before the GCC and may now be moribund.
   Military Developments
   North Africa has been a main area of conflict over the past year, with combat in Libya, Western Sahara, Chad and the Sudan. Libya received Soviet SA-5 SAM late in 1985. These were being installed at the time of the US air strikes against Libya but were inadequate to protect Libyan airspace. lt is not known whether they are fully operational, nor whether these systems have been modified to bring them to the latest specifications. Libyan actions in Chad were intermittent and not very successful. Polisario continues to operate in Western Sahara; the Moroccan defensive wall limits those operations to hit-and-run raids which are being contained. Losses occur on both sides and there are indications that budgetary constraints have delayed some of the purchases of replacements by the Moroccan Forces. The civil war in the Sudan continues to frustrate national development and any improvement of military capability. The transfer from interim military rule to a civil administration has not brought with it the hoped-for reconciliation between the North and South. No major arms purchases have been noted.
   The Gulf War continues, with no apparent change in the balance between Iranian numerical superiority on the one hand and Iraqi material superiority on the other. Reports of losses and confusing indications of resupply make evaluations of strength difficult and of limited reliability. The 'Tanker War' also goes on but without any major impact on exports. The Iraq-based Kurds have taken advantage of the War to strengthen their position. The apparent increase in total Iranian personnel strength stems largely from our inclusion this year of the Revolutionary Guards as Regulars, reflecting their actual position.
   Israeli financial constraints appear to have caused delays in naval equipment programmes and may interfere with the export sales plans for the indigenously-designed Lavi fighter. Despite financial constraints, Saudi Arabia has gone, ahead with its order for Tornado FGA and air defence aircraft and Hawk and Pilatus trainers. Oman, on the other hand, has postponed the delivery of Tornado - presumably for financial reasons. Decisions by the United States Congress and Senate to oppose further orders for equipment has Saudi Arabia seeking alternative sources. The political conflict in Southern Yemen resulted in bitter fighting and the destruction of a considerable proportion of its military equipment; reports on replacement continue to be inconclusive and conflicting.
   Economic Factors
   The Middle East is experiencing the worst economic recession in recent history. After dramatic economic growth on the part of the oil-exporting countries, and substantial economic improvements in many non-oil-producing states (e.g Jordan) during the 1970s, all states of the region are now having to come to terms with economic difficulties until recently confined to the western hemisphere and Africa: large external debts, a drastic reduction in income; and massive trade deficits and deficit financing, which is being partially offset by drawing down reserves. Moreover, the Middle East and North Africa are experiencing significant population growth and urbanization which may have unforeseeable economic consequences and serious implications for regional security, especially in the Gulf.
   The drastic decline of oil prices (in many cases by over 50%), an equally drastic fall in petroleum output, due to conservation measures by the consumer countries and the worldwide recession, are only some of the reasons for this economic malaise. The Iraq-Iran War (and its concomitant economic effects on the GCC), the continuing crisis in the Lebanon and Syria's expensive involvement there, the instability of Sudan, Egypt's expensive modernization of the military, and Libyan and Moroccan military involvement in the Saharan belt are also contributing factors. Moreover, massive infrastructure development projects over the past decade, especially in the major oil-producing countries, have committed these states to their upkeep, forcing them to abandon, or at least to curtail, further development projects. Finally, due to the severe manpower shortage in the Gulf states, Iraq and Libya, many regional states with surplus manpower (e.g. Egypt and Pakistan) have become dependent on hard-currency remittances, and during the past two years these have been drastically reduced.
   Regional debt, excluding Iran, Iraq and Israel, is estimated to amount to about $110 bn. Iran's debt is negligible in comparison to those of other Middle Eastern states, amounting to well under $1 bn. Iraq's debt, on the other hand, is somewhere between $65 bn and $85 bn (three times its GDP), $50-60 bn of which is owed to the GCC states and probably will have been written off; the rest consists of debts to western and Asian creditors and especially to its arms suppliers: the USSR, France and Brazil. Israel's debt -one of the highest in percentage terms of GDP and servicing ratios -amounts to over $30 bn. Of the other states, Sudan, Egypt and Morocco continue to have the highest total national debts, but Jordan, Tunisia, and the Yemen Arab Republic are also dangerously over-exposed (with debts representing about 70% of GDP).
   Regional GDP growth for 1984 was expected to be about 2.5%; in reality, however, it fell to under 1%, while in 1985 GDP actually declined by at least 1.6%, or probably more. With the oil price collapse in 1986, the region will have entered a steep decline (probably around -10%) in terms of GDP output. While the rich oil producers (especially members of the GCC) have sufficient capital reserves to deal with the fall in income in the short run, the poorer states (Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, etc.) will have to find other means to finance their budget deficits.
   With some of the world's highest population increases (between 3 and 5%), economic progress is constantly being eroded; there has been a constant annual rate of decline, ranging from 3% to 5%, in real per capita GDP in the 1980s. The seriousness of the economic situation is further indicated by the decline in trade. Regional exports declined from $253 bn in 1980 to $131 bn in 1985, while imports remained more or less unchanged (falling from $129 bn in 1980 to $116 bn in 1985), and this has caused serious balance-of-payments difficulties in some countries (e.g. Libya, Egypt and Sudan). Some countries, such as Sudan, are near financial collapse, while Israel, with the highest inflation rate and debt exposure, has to be supported financially by Western powers, especially the United States. Their burdens are accentuated by involvement in external conflicts (Morocco, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Libya) or by serious internal problems (Sudan). Political and military insecurity, and high population growth, therefore remain the greatest obstacles to economic advancement in the Middle East.

Ближний Восток и Северная Африка

  
   Двусторонние соглашения с внешними державами
   Советский Союз подписал двадцатилетний 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. 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 подразделения продолжают использовать некоторые военно-морские и воздушные объекты Адена, но есть неопределенность в отношении статуса авиабазы Хормаксар. Все три страны получили значительные поставки советского оружия. Несмотря на это, Ирак пытался 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. 20-летний договор о дружбе между СССР и Северным Йеменом был подписан в октябре 1984 года; подробности не известны.
   В апреле 1980 года Болгария и Йеменская Народно-Демократическая Республика подписали Протокол о сотрудничестве, а 14 ноября 1981 года - Договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве. 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. Последующее соглашение о стратегическом сотрудничестве, о котором сообщалось в начале 1982 года, привело в марте 1984 года к заключению ряда соглашений, охватывающих помощь и поддержку, подробности которых до сих пор не опубликованы. Соглашение 1981 года позволяет США использовать египетские базы, но только на жестких условиях. Аналогичное соглашение было достигнуто с Марокко в мае 1982 года. С Оманом заключено соглашение об оказании экономической и военной помощи в обмен на разрешение использовать Салалу и Масиру в качестве плацдармов. Соглашение с Бахрейном позволяет ВМС США использовать портовые сооружения. В ноябре 1981 года было подписано соглашение о стратегическом сотрудничестве с Тунисом.
   В августе 1971 года Великобритания заключила договоры о дружбе с Бахрейном, Катаром и Объединенными Арабскими Эмиратами (ОАЭ), а в июне 1985 года - соглашение о сотрудничестве в области обороны с Оманом. Она поставляла оружие в Бахрейн, Египет, Иорданию, Кувейт, Оман, Катар, Саудовскую Аравию, Судан и ОАЭ. Франция продолжает заключать соглашения о поставках оружия с Египтом, Ираком, Ливией, Ливией, Марокко, Суданом и Тунисом. Западная Германия оказала Судану техническую помощь в подготовке кадров в соответствии с соглашением 1982 года. Испания достигла оборонного соглашения с Марокко, позволяющего ее военно-морским силам использовать марокканские порты; выгоды для Марокко не определены. В 1964 году Китай подписал договор о дружбе с Северным Йеменом, в соответствии с которым предоставлялось незначительное количество оружия. Оружие и запасные части были направлены Египту в соответствии с соглашениями, подписанными в 1978/9 и 1983 годах. В январе 1982 года с Суданом было подписано соглашение о военном сотрудничестве и поставках оружия. В ноябре 1982 года Северная Корея и Ливия подписали Договор о Союзе или дружбе и сотрудничестве, который разрешает обмен военными данными, специалистами и поставками.
   Миротворческие силы
   24 июля 1979 года Организация Объединенных Наций (ООН) вывела с Синайского полуострова чрезвычайные силы в составе 4000 человек (ЧВС ООН); их функции временно взяла на себя организация по наблюдению за выполнением условий перемирия (ОНВУП), насчитывающая 298 сотрудников (включая группу наблюдателей в Бейруте, насчитывающую около 50 сотрудников). Он следит за прекращением огня на северной границе Израиля с 1949 года. Египетско-израильская граница в настоящее время патрулируется 2642-мя многонациональными силами и наблюдателями (МНС) в соответствии с израильско-египетским мирным договором; контингенты прибывают из США (1186), Австралии (которая в 1986 году была заменена Канадой) (109), Великобритании (37), Колумбии (500), Фиджи (500), Франции (43), Италии (90), Нидерландов (102) и Уругвая (75).
   Организация Объединенных Наций также развертывает на Голанских высотах силы по наблюдению за разъединением (СООННР) численностью 1317 человек в составе контингентов из Австрии (532), Канады (226), Финляндии (402) и Польши (157).
   Временные силы Организации Объединенных Наций в Ливане (ВСООНЛ) состоят примерно из 5827 человек из Франции (1391), Фиджи (627), Финляндии (514), Ганы (690), Ирландии (746), Италии (51), Непала (800), Норвегии (864) и Швеции (144).
   Договоренности в регионе
   Алжир, Бахрейн, Джибути, Иордания, Ирак, Йемен, Катар, Кувейт, Ливан, Ливия, Мавритания, Марокко, Оман, Организация освобождения Палестины (ООП), Саудовская Аравия, Сирия, Сомали, Судан, 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 (учрежденный в 1950 году), постоянный военный комитет Генерального штаба армии (1950 год), являющийся консультативным органом, и Объединенное арабское командование (1964 год).
   Силы сирийской и Палестинской освободительной армии, первоначально развернутые в качестве арабских сил сдерживания, остаются в некоторых районах Северного Ливана. Сирия усилила 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 Национальной гвардии осуществляют определенный контроль над полосой территории на юге Ливана.
   Алжир и Ливия подписали соглашение об обороне в 1975 году. Египет и Судан подписали совместное соглашение об обороне в 1977 году. Протокол совместного Совета обороны Египта и Судана от декабря 1981 года был приравнен к другому соглашению, а в октябре 1982 года была подписана "Хартия интеграции", охватывающая, в частности, военную политику; вероятно, они больше не действуют. Саудовская Аравия давно поддерживает Марокко в борьбе с партизанами Полисарио; в феврале 1982 года обе страны подписали пакт о безопасности. 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; подробности не разглашаются. 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, Катаром, Кувейтом, Оманом, Саудовской Аравией и ОАЭ, разрабатывает структуру взаимной обороны, включающую совместные силы быстрого развертывания, противовоздушную оборону, транспорт и закупки. Он подкрепляется пактами о внутренней безопасности между Саудовской Аравией и Бахрейном, Катаром, Оманом (1982 год) и ОАЭ. В настоящее время рассматривается проект соглашения о безопасности в заливе.
   Марокко предоставило силы ОАЭ. Ливия, Южный Йемен и Эфиопия сформировали трехсторонний альянс по Аденскому договору в 1981 году; он включал совместное оборонное обязательство, но с тех пор ничего не сообщалось, и это обязательство, вероятно, утратило силу. Север и Юг Йемена в принципе согласились на слияние (1981, 1986 годы); подробности остаются неясными. Египет, Иордания, Марокко и Северный Йемен объявили об отъезде неопределенного числа "добровольцев" для оказания помощи Ираку в войне против Ирана, однако сформированных подразделений отправлено не было. Ирак заявил, что были сформированы многонациональные составные подразделения; их роли неясны. Судан и Эфиопия договорились о режиме безопасности, стабильности и невмешательства во внутренние дела друг друга, в июле 1982 года. Действия, предпринятые после переворота в Судане в апреле 1985 года, указывают на возможность осуществления этого соглашения.
   Движение оружия в регионе является особенно сложным. Египет поставляет оружие Марокко, Судану и Ираку. Алжир и Ливия поставляли оружие Полисарио, а большинство арабских стран поставляли оружие палестинским партизанам. В некоторых случаях иностранное оружие, закупаемое получателем, финансируется третьим государством. 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. Некоторые китайские вооружения были идентифицированы на иранской службе, и сообщается, что еще больше было доставлено. 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) для поощрения производства оружия арабскими народами. Арабские участие закончилось в 1979 году после сближения Египта с Израилем. Египет заменил АОИ существующей египетской Арабской организацией военной промышленности и иностранной помощью. Часть этой помощи поступает из Саудовской Аравии для осуществления ограниченных конкретных проектов. Египет также заключает соглашения о совместном производстве с Великобританией, Францией, США и Югославией. Со своей стороны, Саудовская Аравия, Ирак, Кувейт, Катар и ОАЭ договорились в 1979 году заменить АОИ на 8-миллиардную оружейную промышленность в ОАЭ. Это предложение все еще находится на рассмотрении ССЗ и, возможно, в настоящее время умирает.
   Военные события
   Северная Африка была основным районом конфликта в течение последнего года, с боевыми действиями в Ливии, Западной Сахаре, Чаде и Судане. Ливия получила Советский ЗРК SA-5 в конце 1985 года. Они были установлены во время авиаударов США против Ливии, но были недостаточны для защиты воздушного пространства Ливии. неизвестно, полностью ли они функционируют и были ли эти системы модифицированы с целью приведения их в соответствие с последними техническими требованиями. Ливийские действия в Чаде были периодическими и не очень успешными. ПОЛИСАРИО продолжает действовать в Западной Сахаре; марокканская оборонительная стена ограничивает эти операции рейдами, которые сдерживаются. Потери происходят с обеих сторон, и есть признаки того, что бюджетные ограничения задерживают некоторые закупки марокканскими силами запасных частей. Гражданская война в Судане продолжает подрывать национальное развитие и любое укрепление военного потенциала. Переход от временного военного правления к гражданской администрации не принес с собой ожидаемого примирения между Севером и Югом. Крупных закупок оружия отмечено не было.
   Война в Персидском заливе продолжается без видимых изменений в балансе между численным превосходством Ирана, с одной стороны, и материальным превосходством Ирака - с другой. Сообщения о потерях и путаные указания на пополнение запасов затрудняют оценку сил и ограниченной надежности. "Танкерная война" также продолжается, но не оказывает существенного влияния на экспорт. Иракские курды воспользовались войной для укрепления своих позиций. Очевидное увеличение общей численности иранского личного состава объясняется главным образом тем, что в этом году мы включили в состав регулярной армии стражей исламской революции, что отражает их фактическое положение.
   Как представляется, финансовые трудности Израиля привели к задержкам в осуществлении программ по оснащению военно-морского флота и могут помешать осуществлению планов экспортных продаж истребителя Lavi, сконструированного на местном уровне. Несмотря на финансовые трудности, Саудовская Аравия выполнила свой заказ на самолеты Tornado ударный и ПВО, а также на учебные Hawk и Pilatus. Оман, с другой стороны, отложил доставку Tornado - предположительно по финансовым причинам. Решения Конгресса и Сената США выступить против дальнейших заказов на оборудование заставили Саудовскую Аравию искать альтернативные источники. Политический конфликт на юге Йемена привел к ожесточенным боевым действиям и уничтожению значительной части его военной техники; сообщения о замене по-прежнему являются неубедительными и противоречивыми.
   Экономические факторы
   Ближний Восток переживает самый тяжелый экономический кризис в новейшей истории. После резкого экономического роста со стороны стран-экспортеров нефти и существенного улучшения экономического положения во многих государствах, не являющихся производителями нефти (т.к. Иордания) в 70-е годы все государства региона в настоящее время вынуждены мириться с экономическими трудностями, которые до недавнего времени ограничивались Западным полушарием и Африкой: большой внешней задолженностью, резким сокращением доходов; и массовым торговым дефицитом и финансированием дефицита, который частично компенсируется сокращением резервов. Кроме того, на Ближнем Востоке и в Северной Африке наблюдается значительный рост населения и урбанизация, которые могут иметь непредсказуемые экономические последствия и серьезные последствия для региональной безопасности, особенно в заливе.
   Резкое снижение цен на нефть (во многих случаях более чем на 50%), столь же резкое падение добычи нефти из-за мер по ее сохранению странами-потребителями и мировой рецессии - лишь некоторые из причин этого экономического недуга. Иракско-иранская война (и ее сопутствующие экономические последствия для ССАГПЗ), продолжающийся кризис в Ливане и дорогостоящее участие Сирии в нем, нестабильность Судана, дорогостоящая модернизация вооруженных сил Египта и Ливийское и марокканское военное участие в Сахарском поясе также являются факторами, способствующими этому. Кроме того, масштабные проекты развития инфраструктуры за последнее десятилетие, особенно в крупных нефтедобывающих странах, обязали эти государства поддерживать их, заставив их отказаться или, по крайней мере, свернуть дальнейшие проекты развития. Наконец, из-за острой нехватки рабочей силы в государствах Персидского залива, Ираке и Ливии многие региональные государства с избытком рабочей силы (например, Египет и Пакистан) стали зависеть от денежных переводов в твердой валюте, и в течение последних двух лет они были резко сокращены.
   Региональный долг, за исключением Ирана, Ирака и Израиля, оценивается примерно в $110 млрд. Долг Ирана ничтожно мал по сравнению с долгами других ближневосточных государств и составляет менее $ 1 млрд. С другой стороны, задолженность Ирака составляет где-то от 65 до 85 млрд. долл.США (втрое больше ВВП), из которых 50-60 млрд. долл. США причитаются государствам ССЗ и, вероятно, будут списаны; остальная часть состоит из долгов западным и Азиатским кредиторам и особенно поставщикам оружия: СССР, Франции и Бразилии. Долг Израиля - один из самых высоких в процентном отношении к ВВП и коэффициентам обслуживания - составляет более $30 млрд. Из других государств Судан, Египет и Марокко по-прежнему имеют самый высокий общий национальный долг, но Иордания, Тунис и Йеменская Арабская Республика также опасно чрезмерно подвержены (с долгами, составляющими около 70% ВВП).
   Ожидалось, что рост регионального ВВП в 1984 году составит около 2,5%; в действительности, однако, он упал до менее 1%, в то время как в 1985 году ВВП фактически снизился по крайней мере на 1,6%, или, возможно, больше. С обвалом цен на нефть в 1986 году регион вступит в резкое снижение (вероятно, около -10%) объема производства ВВП. В то время как богатые производители нефти (особенно члены ССЗ) имеют достаточные запасы капитала, чтобы справиться с падением доходов в краткосрочной перспективе, более бедные государства (Иордания, Египет, Судан и т. д.) придется изыскивать другие средства для финансирования своего бюджетного дефицита.
   С некоторыми из самых высоких в мире темпов прироста населения (от 3 до 5%) экономический прогресс постоянно подрывается; в 1980-х годах наблюдался постоянный ежегодный спад реального ВВП на душу населения в диапазоне от 3% до 5%. О серьезности экономической ситуации свидетельствует также спад в торговле. Региональный экспорт сократился с 253 млрд. долл.США в 1980 году до 131 млрд. долл. США в 1985 году, в то время как импорт остался более или менее неизменным (снизившись со 129 млрд. долл. США в 1980 году до 116 млрд. долл. США в 1985 году), что вызвало серьезные трудности с платежным балансом в некоторых странах (например, Ливии, Египте и Судане). Некоторые страны, такие как Судан, близки к финансовому краху, в то время как Израиль, с самыми высокими темпами инфляции и долговыми обязательствами, должен получать финансовую поддержку со стороны западных держав, особенно Соединенных Штатов. Их бремя усугубляется участием во внешних конфликтах (Марокко, Сирия, Ирак, Иран, Израиль и Ливия) или серьезными внутренними проблемами (Судан). Поэтому отсутствие политической и военной безопасности и высокие темпы роста населения по-прежнему являются самыми серьезными препятствиями на пути экономического прогресса на Ближнем Востоке.

   LEBANON
Given the continuing conflict in the Lebanon, the development of at least two economies, the political impotence of the President and the National Assembly, and the existence of several armed forces, it is no longer possible to provide macro-economic, population or meaningful defence economic data. There are no longer any truly 'national' forces. Even the respective sectarian militia forces vary in their degrees of cohesion. They all have small regular cadres, rapidly expanded by mobilizing reserves. Much of the equipment of the former national forces is held by these groups; some is stored unserviceable. The militias have their own ources of supply, and it has not been possible to determine types and quantities accurately.

   Bilateral External Agreements
   The US has mutual defence and assistance agreements with Kenya (February 1980) and Somalia (August 1980) which give the US limited access to naval and air facilities and Somalia 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 has 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, 1985), 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 has provided training since 1979 and some equipment.
   Portugal signed a Protocol on Military Co-operation with Mozambique in April 1982.
   Cuba has some 27,000 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 North 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, but little progress has been reported. lt did agree in 1981 on an Inter-African Force for Chad, with troops from Nigeria, Senegal and Zaire. OAU financing was inadequate
and 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. lt 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. There is now a confederal army with one Gambian company. Each government has its own Gendarmerie. 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'. Tanzania had provided instructors for Uganda under a defence pact signed in August 1981; present status of this arrangement is unclear. 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 let 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 its own designs.
   Military Developments
   Conflicts during the year included border incidents between Burkina Faso and Mali and the continuing internal conflicts in Angola, Chad, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Uganda and South Africa. The conflict between Burkina Faso and Mali could not be sustained, and there has been no report of any major change to organization or equipment of the miniscule armed forces of the two countries. The data on Burkina Faso has been revised, but the information leading to the amendments predates the conflict. Uganda has seen the overthrow of the previous (Obote) government and the collapse of that government's armed forces. The new government's National Resistance Army has taken over some of the previous inventory and may be absorbing some of the personnel who have not fled to the Sudan. Future plans and programmes for this reconstituted force are unknown but a short-term increase in strength is expected. The armed forces of Chad have received a modest amount of aid from France in the form of APCs. There has been a reorganization in Chad's para-military structure with the amalgamation of the National and the Territorial Military Police which had absorbed the former Nomad Guard component. Details on the Opposition forces remain scanty; the changes shown represent re-evaluation of data.
   Details of the fighting in Angola have supported earlier reports of equipment deliveries. More recent reports suggest that additional equipment has been sought by the Angolan Government from the USSR; deliveries cannot be confirmed. lt is still difficult to assess how much of the equipment reported is actually serviceable. In Mozambique the National Resistance Movement (MNR or Renamo) appears to retain the initiative and has inflicted major defeats on Government forces. Troops from Zimbabwe and Tanzania have been deployed in varying strengths to protect communications links vital to those two countries' economies. They have succeeded intermittently in establishing relatively secure zones in their respective sectors but the Mozambique Government seems unable always to hold them. Economic shortcomings exacerbate the military situation.
   Arms procurement throughout the area continues to be inadequately reported and difficult to verify. Deliveries seem to have slowed, but it could be that the arrival of equipment is unreported. A possible exception is Nigeria, where a number of naval vessels are reported to have been ordered. Some of these may, in fact, be intended for para-military use. For most of the countries of the region, spares would appear to be more important than major equipment items. Much of the equipment in use is not new, and a large proportion of the respective inventories is probably no longer operable.
   Economic Factors
   Except for Nigeria and South Africa, the economic performance of Sub-Saharan African countries generally continues to be disappointing. Real GDP growth rates in 1982 and 1983 hovered around 0.5%, rising only to 2% and 3% in 1984 and 1985. However, as population growth continued to outstrip economic performance, per capita real GDP growth rates were negative between 1981 and 1984, resulting in a marked fall in living standards. Figures for 1985 suggest that per capita GDP growth was around 1% -not enough to make up for the 3-4% p.a. decline over the previous four years.
   Economic growth is expected to remain below 3%in 1986 (lower than projected population growth), bringing little hope of immediate improvement. The drought that devastated agriculture receded in 1985, but its effects will be long felt. Although food production rose by some 30% in 1985 the increase was from the very low base of 1983-4, and over one third of the population is still dependent on imported grain for sustenance. Notably, out of the six countries singled out by FAO as requiring emergency relief in 1986, four - Angola, Mozambique, Sudan and Ethiopia - face internal conflicts. Many low-income countries have introduced economic adjustment policies as prescribed by international lending bodies, and some (like Ghana and Zaire) implemented austerity programmes which, though unpopular, have shown positive results. Other countries (for instance, Guinea, The Gambia, Ghana and Mauritania) have realigned their foreign exchange, while others (like Tanzania, Mauritania, Cameroon and Guinea), have reduced subsidies on food commodities, and increased prices paid to farmers for export crops. However, as the outgoing President of the World Bank has warned, 'adjustment through further economic contraction is not a feasible alternative in a continent where per capita income levels are today no higher than they were 20 years ago'.* Another major problem facing the region is the massive $ 110.5 bn debt, of which Nigeria and South Africa account for $21.5 bn and $24 bn respectively. Debt service ratios continue to deteriorate, increasing from 15.6% in 1980 to 20.2% in 1982 and 23.3% in 1984, reaching 29% in 1985 and being expected to exceed 30% in 1986. The situation for some countries is extremely serious. Ghana, for instance, budgeted 50% of its export earnings for debt servicing, while Nigeria estimated this ratio at 43%.Terms of trade for the region as a whole are expected to worsen in 1986, making the debts of many countries unserviceable.
   While West African countries might benefit from improvements in coffee prices (if they do not over-supply and so depress prices, which remains a distinct possibility), the fall in oil prices might be a mixed blessing for importing countries - on one hand, leading to a reduction in the import bills; on the other, possibly causing a further reduction in funds available for investment. Substantial external resources will be necessary if the regions' economies are to recover and prosper. The shortfall in external financing is estimated at between $4 bn and $7 bn p. a. A reversal in the trend towards restricting soft loans in favour of short-term commercial credit, and a more generous attitude by Western creditor nations (such as the cancellation of government-to-government debt) will be essential. Some signs of a change in the attitudes of Western nations began to emerge in 1986, and if sufficient funds become available and appropriate structural adjustments are undertaken, then the bleakest years might be at an end.

Африка к югу от Сахары

  
   Двусторонние Внешние Соглашения
   США имеют соглашения о взаимной обороне и помощи с Кенией (февраль 1980 года) и Сомали (август 1980 года), которые дают США ограниченный доступ к военно-морским и воздушным объектам и Сомали некоторую военную помощь.
   Советский Союз заключил 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 такого соглашения, как известно, не существует. Военная помощь была оказана Анголе (в соответствии с дополнительными соглашениями о военном сотрудничестве, включая соглашение, подписанное в мае 1983 года), Гвинее, Гвинее-Бисау, Замбии, Мали, Мозамбику, Нигерии, Сомали, Уганде и Эфиопии (1980 год). Советский флот имеет объекты на островах Далак, Эфиопия. Были получены сообщения о Советском объекте в САО-Томе и Принсипи.
   Китай заключил соглашения о военной помощи с Камеруном, Экваториальной Гвинеей, Гвинеей, Мали и Танзанией и предоставил помощь Мозамбику и Заиру (в рамках кредита 1982 года).
   Великобритания поддерживает соглашения о пролете, подготовке и обороне с Кенией, помогает Зимбабве формировать и обучать свои силы и возглавляет учебную группу Содружества (Австралия, Великобритания, Канада, Гайана, Ямайка, Кения, Сьерра-Леоне и Танзания), которая помогает восстанавливать угандийские силы обороны.
   Франция подписала соглашения об обороне с Камеруном (февраль 1974 года), Центральноафриканской Республикой (август 1960 года), Коморскими островами (октябрь 1978 года), Джибути (июнь 1977 года, включая разрешение на развертывание сил), Габоном (август 1974 года, 1985 года), Кот-Д'Ивуаром (апрель 1961 года), Сенегалом (март 1974 года) и того (июль 1963 года). Соглашения с чадом временно привели к развертыванию французских вооруженных сил и оказанию дальнейшей поддержки. Франция подписала соглашения о технической военной помощи с 23 странами, включая вышеуказанные.
   Бельгия заключила с Заиром соглашение о военном сотрудничестве. Испания заключила военное соглашение с Экваториальной Гвинеей (1981 год) и с 1979 года осуществляет подготовку и предоставляет некоторое оборудование.
   Португалия подписали Протокол о военном сотрудничестве с Мозамбиком в апреле 1982 года.
   Куба имеет около 27 000 человек в Анголе, которые занимаются подготовкой ангольских вооруженных сил и содействуют обеспечению внутренней безопасности, и 5000 человек 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. В сентябре 1980 года Венгрия подписала договор о дружбе с Эфиопией и Мозамбиком. В октябре 1981 года Северная Корея подписала договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Того и направила в Зимбабве (1981-1984 годы) учебную группу в составе 100 человек, а в 1985 году-группу в составе 6 человек.; продолжают поступать сообщения о том, что северокорейские группы находятся в Анголе и семи других странах (Бенин, Замбия, Конго, Мозамбик, Сейшельские острова, Танзания), а учебная группа в составе 200 человек находится в Уганде. Эфиопия заключила договор о дружбе с Ливией и Южным Йеменом в 1981 году.
   Многосторонние Региональные Соглашения
   Организация африканского единства (ОАЕ), созданная в мае 1963 года для включения в ее состав всех международно признанных независимых африканских государств, за исключением Южной Африки, имеет комиссию по вопросам обороны, отвечающую за сотрудничество в области обороны и безопасности и защиту суверенитета, территориальной целостности и независимости ее членов. В 1979 году она в принципе утвердила африканские силы вмешательства и распорядилась о планировании их формирования, финансирования и оснащения, однако прогресс был незначительным. в 1981 году она договорилась о создании Межафриканских сил для чада с участием войск Нигерии, Сенегала и Заира. Финансирование ОАЕ было недостаточным, а силы были выведены в июне 1982 года.
   В 1961 году Габон, Конго, Центральноафриканская Республика и Чад при содействии Франции сформировали Совет обороны Экваториальной Африки. Нынешняя позиция чада в отношении Совета неясна.
   В мае 1981 года экономическое сообщество западноафриканских государств (ЭКОВАС) приняло протокол о взаимной помощи по вопросам обороны, предусматривающий создание совместной комиссии по вопросам обороны в составе министров обороны и их начальников штабов обороны, а также Совета глав государств по вопросам обороны. она призвана создать совместные силы, используя выделенные подразделения национальных армий, которые могли бы служить в качестве сил вмешательства или поддержания мира. Из 16 тогдашних членов ЭКОВАС (Бенин, Гамбия, Гана, Гвинея, Гвинея-Бисау, Кабо-Верде, кот-Д'Ивуар, Либерия, Мавритания, Мали, Нигер, Нигерия, Сенегал, Сьерра-Леоне, Того и Верхняя Вольта) подписали 12; Кабо-Верде, Гвинея-Бисау и Мали отказались, а Мавритания подписала только после внесения поправок в протокол, призвав к выводу иностранных войск, как только ЭКОВАС сможет гарантировать взаимную оборону.
   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 пограничными вторжениями. 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, объединивший обе страны в Сенегамбию. Сейчас есть армия Конфедерации с одной гамбийской ротой. У каждого правительства есть своя жандармерия. В начале 1981 года Джибути подписала договор о дружбе с Эфиопией и сомалийской Республикой. В январе 1983 года Нигерия и Бенин подписали соглашение о военном сотрудничестве, предусматривающее проведение совместных учений и неуказанные "другие мероприятия". Танзания предоставила Уганде инструкторов в соответствии с пактом об обороне, подписанным в августе 1981 года; нынешний статус этого соглашения неясен. Заир тренирует чадские войска. В марте 1984 года Южная Африка подписала одно соглашение с Мозамбиком о взаимном сдерживании повстанческих действий, а другое - с Анголой, предусматривающее разъединение южноафриканских сил и взаимный контроль за партизанской деятельностью. Ангола и Заир заключили договор о безопасности и обороне в феврале 1985 года; каждая 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 оборудование как по лицензии, так и по своим собственным проектам.
   Военные события
   Конфликты в течение года включали пограничные инциденты между Буркина-Фасо и Мали и продолжающиеся внутренние конфликты в Анголе, Мозамбике, Уганде, Чаде, Эфиопии и Южной Африке. Конфликт между Буркина-Фасо и Мали не мог продолжаться, и не поступало никаких сообщений о каких-либо серьезных изменениях в организации или оснащении миниатюрных вооруженных сил этих двух стран. Данные по Буркина-Фасо были пересмотрены, однако информация, приведшая к внесению поправок, появилась до конфликта. Уганда стала свидетелем свержения предыдущего правительства (Оботе) и развала вооруженных сил этого правительства. Национальная армия сопротивления нового правительства взяла на себя часть предыдущего инвентарного состава и, возможно, поглотит часть персонала, который не бежал в Судан. Будущие планы и программы в отношении этих восстановленных сил неизвестны, однако ожидается их краткосрочное увеличение. Вооруженные силы Чада получили от Франции скромную помощь в виде БТР. Была проведена реорганизация военно-полувоенной структуры чада с объединением национальной и территориальной военной полиции, в которую был включен бывший компонент охраны кочевников. Сведения о оппозиционных силах остаются скудными; представленные изменения представляют собой переоценку данных.
   Подробности боевых действий в Анголе подтверждали ранее поступавшие сообщения о поставках техники. Согласно более поздним сообщениям, ангольское правительство запросило у СССР дополнительное оборудование; поставки не могут быть подтверждены. по-прежнему трудно оценить, какая часть оборудования, о котором сообщается, является фактически исправной. В Мозамбике национальное движение сопротивления (МНР или РЕНАМО), как представляется, сохраняет инициативу и нанесло серьезные поражения правительственным силам. Войска Зимбабве и Танзании были развернуты с различной силой для защиты коммуникационных связей, имеющих жизненно важное значение для экономики этих двух стран. Им периодически удавалось создавать относительно безопасные зоны в своих соответствующих секторах, однако правительство Мозамбика, как представляется, не всегда может их удерживать. Экономические недостатки усугубляют военную ситуацию.
   По-прежнему поступают неадекватные сообщения о закупках оружия во всем районе, и их трудно проверить. Поставки, похоже, замедлились, но, возможно, прибытие оборудования не сообщается. Возможным исключением является Нигерия, где, как сообщается, было заказано несколько морских судов. Некоторые из них могут, по сути, предназначаться для использования в военных целях. Для большинства стран региона запасные части, как представляется, имеют более важное значение, чем основное имущество. Большая часть используемого оборудования не нова, и значительная часть соответствующих запасов, вероятно, уже не функционирует.
   Экономические факторы
   За исключением Нигерии и Южной Африки, экономические показатели стран Африки к югу от Сахары в целом продолжают вызывать разочарование. Реальные темпы роста ВВП в 1982 и 1983 годах колебались около 0,5%, увеличившись лишь до 2% и 3% в 1984 и 1985 годах. Однако, поскольку рост населения продолжал опережать экономические показатели, реальные темпы роста ВВП на душу населения в период 1981-1984 годов были отрицательными, что привело к заметному снижению уровня жизни. Цифры за 1985 год показывают, что рост ВВП на душу населения составлял около 1% - недостаточно, чтобы компенсировать 3-4% п. a. снижение за предыдущие четыре года.
   Ожидается, что в 1986 году экономический рост будет оставаться ниже 3% (ниже прогнозируемого роста населения), что не дает больших надежд на немедленное улучшение. Засуха, опустошившая сельское хозяйство, отступила в 1985 году, но ее последствия будут ощущаться еще долго. Хотя производство продовольствия выросло примерно на 30% в 1985 году, рост был с очень низкой базы 1983-1984 годов, и более трети населения по-прежнему зависит от импорта зерна для поддержания жизни. В частности, из шести стран, которые ФАО выделила в качестве нуждающихся в чрезвычайной помощи в 1986 году, четыре - Ангола, Мозамбик, Судан и Эфиопия - сталкиваются с внутренними конфликтами. Многие страны с низким уровнем дохода проводят политику экономической перестройки, предписанную международными кредитными органами, а некоторые (например, Гана и Заир) осуществляют программы жесткой экономии, которые, хотя и непопулярны, но дают положительные результаты. Другие страны (например, Гвинея, Гамбия, Гана и Мавритания) пересмотрели курс своей иностранной валюты, в то время как другие (например, Танзания, Мавритания, Камерун и Гвинея) сократили субсидии на продовольственные товары и повысили цены, выплачиваемые фермерам за экспортные культуры. Однако, как предупреждал уходящий президент Всемирного банка, "корректировка путем дальнейшего экономического спада не является реальной альтернативой на континенте, где уровень дохода на душу населения сегодня не выше, чем 20 лет назад".* Еще одной серьезной проблемой, стоящей перед регионом, является огромный долг в размере 110,5 млрд. долл.США, из которых на Нигерию и Южную Африку приходится 21,5 млрд. долл. Коэффициенты обслуживания долга продолжают ухудшаться, увеличиваясь с 15,6% в 1980 году до 20,2% в 1982 году и 23,3% в 1984 году, достигнув 29% В 1985 году и, как ожидается, превысив 30% в 1986 году. Для некоторых стран ситуация крайне серьезна. Гана, например, заложила в бюджет 50% своих экспортных поступлений на обслуживание долга, в то время как Нигерия оценила этот показатель в 43%.Ожидается, что в 1986 году условия торговли в регионе в целом ухудшатся, что сделает задолженность многих стран безнадежной.
   В то время как западноафриканские страны могли бы извлечь выгоду из повышения цен на кофе (если они не перепроизводят и тем самым не снизят цены, что по-прежнему является очевидной возможностью), падение цен на нефть может быть неоднозначным благом для стран - импортеров, с одной стороны, что приведет к сокращению импортных счетов; с другой стороны, возможно, приведет к дальнейшему сокращению средств, имеющихся для инвестиций. Для восстановления и процветания экономики регионов потребуются значительные внешние ресурсы. Дефицит внешнего финансирования оценивается в $4 млрд. и $7 млрд р. а. Необходимо обратить вспять тенденцию к ограничению льготных кредитов в пользу краткосрочных коммерческих кредитов и более щедрое отношение западных стран - кредиторов (например, списание государственного долга). Некоторые признаки изменения отношения западных стран начали проявляться в 1986 году, и если будут выделены достаточные средства и осуществлены соответствующие структурные перестройки, то самые мрачные годы могут закончиться.

CHINA

   Chinese defence policy long maintained a balance, at times uneasy, between two concepts: nuclear force to deter strategic attack, and People's War, involving large scale mobilization, to deter or repel conventional invasion.
   Though some conservatives remain, most of today's leadership has recognized that countering a Soviet limited thrust is probably the most difficult problem facing the People's Liberation Army (PLA). The need to modernize has been recognized. Re-equipment and reorganization programmes are being implemented. Older officers are being retired and a greater degree of professionalism is being encouraged.
   The conventional arms inventory of the PLA, technically much less advanced than that of wealthier nations, is being gradually updated by replacing Soviet and Soviet-type equipment with indigenous designs, often incorporating some Western technology, or by renovating older equipment. China has also purchased computers and radars from western countries and is negotiating the purchase of a wide range of military equipment. Brazil has licenced China to produce APCs. Britain has sold aircraft engines, artillery and fire control equipment and radar. France has sold helicopters, ASW systems and radar. The United States has agreed to sell helicopters, naval engines, artillery ammunition components and blueprints and designs for an artillery ammunition plant. Purchases are often small, representing little more than 'samples'. China appears to wish to examine not only the operational characteristics of the Western systems but also the technologies involved in their manufacture. Given the magnitude of the task of modernization, and the competing demands for foreign exchange, large-scale procurement of foreign equipment appears unlikely. The PLA does need knowledge of the latest foreign military technology. Should China decide to initiate domestic production of modern weapon systems, details of materials technology must also be acquired. Small samples can do much to provide this but complex systems could be most cheaply provided only if Beijing were to seek licence co-production contracts which included advice and assistance in the production of the basic raw materials as well as in the manufacture and assembly of individual systems. Such contracts would carry with them political and economic costs insofar as relations between the Western supplier and other Far Eastern nations are concerned.
   Despite the period of economic readjustment which has led to a succession of cuts in the defence budget since 1980, this year's budget again shows a small increase (which will certainly be swallowed by inflation). Thus the pace of modernization will continue to be 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 Military Affairs Committee (MAC) of the Chinese Communist Party directly controls the Strategic Rocket Forces which include ICBMs, SLBMs and bombers. Modernization continues but appears to be concentrating on propulsion and, perhaps, guidance. No new nuclear tests have been recorded since 1984. By that time 27 tests had been atmospheric; there may have been as many as five underground tests. China announced in March 1986 that it would not again test in the atmosphere.
   Two types of ICBM are deployed in only small numbers, one (DF-5) with a range of some 15,000 km, the other (DF-4) some 7,000 km. No indication has been received of the deployment of multiple warheads, but a missile -the Long March (CZ)-2 -has been successfully used (and thus tested) as a launcher for three space research satellites, and a DF-5 was reported in September 1985 to have been tested with a multiple warhead. So far all ballistic missiles have been liquid-fuelled. Solid propellants, being developed, are reported to have fuelled the 1980 ICBM test vehicle, may fuel the DF-5 ICBM and probably fuel the SLBM. China's first SSBN are boats of the Xia class with 12 Julang-l (CSS-NX-4 = Giant Wave) SLBM -a variant of the DF-3 IRBM -the range of which is reported to be of the order of 2,200-3,000 km (probably closer to the lower figure). Four more SSBN are said to be under construction, some - perhaps a distinct 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. Reports continue to appear of the existence of tactical nuclear munitions: artillery, rockets and mines. A version of the Soviet FROG-7 SSM is said to be under development. If such munitions were available, fighter aircraft could be used for tactical delivery of airdropped variants of them, and for longer ranges some of the Air Force's 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 largescale operations at any significant distance outside Chinese borders.
   Military Developments
   The Armed Forces reductions continue, with the ground forces taking the brunt of the initial cuts, while those for the Navy and Air are still to come. A 1982 programme of reorganization is also in progress. The Field Armies (yezhanjun) are now 'Group Armies' (Jituanjuri).The Regional Army has been reorganized into 7 Military Regions (MR) with 29 Military Districts (MD; or 'Provincial Military Regions'). In peacetime these Regions serve largely an administrative function. In wartime the frontier MRs might become Fronts (zhanxian) or combined into Strategic Sectors (zhanlu'egu). The Field Armies' Main Force (MF) divisions are commanded by the General Staff at the Ministry of National Defence. In wartime, command will be transferred to the Front or Strategic Sector corresponding to the MR in which the divisions are stationed and which are already responsible for their administration. Artillery, engineer and railway units which, until 1983, were independent are now controlled by Departments within the Ministry of National Defence.
   The Navy has added six more Type-033 diesel submarines and three Jianghu frigates. The construction programmes for Hainan patrol craft and Shantou fast attack craft continue, with some 60 of each now in service, but the Shanghai FAC, Huchwan hydrofoil and smaller coastal types have all shown a varying decrease. There is a new Haiju-class fast missile craft in service; details of its armament are still unclear. The naval air arm continues to be shorebased, and the independent Coastal Defence Force appears to be receiving the HY-4 SSM. The naval component remains essentially a coastal defence force, incapable of long-range force projection. The air component of the PLA 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. Much of the older foreign equipment is reportedly retiring, although its retention for training or Reserve duties is probable. Production rates are, at best, broad estimates only. Actual rates in some categories 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, Iran, Pakistan and Tanzania.
   Gross National Product and Defence Expenditure
   During the past few years China has exhibited remarkable economic growth, with average real increases in GDP and GNP growth ranging between 8% and 12%. (In 1985 the GNP growth rate amounted to about 11-12%). However, although China is now a member of the IMF, disagreements still exist about assessing the size of the Chinese economy in US dollar equivalents.
   This rapid economic development appears not to be reflected in the defence sector. As a proporation of GNP and government expenditures, defence budgets have actually declined for the past four years. As in most socialist economies, however, defence budgets are usually presented as a single category within the state budget, and do not indicate defence-related expenses incurred by other ministries and economic sectors. In the light of not only the modernization efforts of the PLA, and perhaps some improvements in administrative efficiency, but also the rapidly expanding indigenous military industries -for national consumption and, especially, for export -it is difficult to assess the real costs of the defence sector. The Central Intelligence Agency* has argued that the decreasing defence expenditure reflects the sector's 'diminished priority' in the economic reform programme; but, while this is true to the extent that defence remains only the fourth priority in the modernization plans, it is also true that other sectors of the economy carry considerable military burdens, ranging from improved health programmes to updated industrial machinery. The official budget figures, therefore, must be seen as an indicator of the increasing efficiency of the military administration, rather than a measurement of the actual expenditures. lt would seem likely that the process of 'streamlining', together with substantial manpower reductions, will permit significant modernization, even with constrained budgets.

Китай

   Китайская оборонная политика долгое время поддерживала баланс, порой непростой, между двумя концепциями: ядерными силами для сдерживания стратегического нападения и народной войной, включающей широкомасштабную мобилизацию, для сдерживания или отражения обычного вторжения.
   Хотя некоторые консерваторы остались, большинство сегодняшних лидеров признали, что противодействие Советскому ограниченному натиску является, вероятно, самой трудной проблемой, стоящей перед Народно-освободительной армией (НОАК). Была признана необходимость модернизации. Осуществляются программы переоснащения и реорганизации. В настоящее время пожилые сотрудники выходят на пенсию и поощряется повышение профессионализма.
   Запасы обычных вооружений НОАК, технически гораздо менее совершенные, чем у более богатых стран, постепенно обновляются путем замены советского оборудования местными конструкциями, часто включающими некоторые западные технологии, или путем обновления старого оборудования. Китай также закупил компьютеры и радары у западных стран и ведет переговоры о закупке широкого спектра военной техники. Бразилия выдала Китаю лицензию на производство БТР. Британия продала авиационные двигатели, артиллерийское и противопожарное оборудование и радары. Франция продала вертолеты, системы противолодочной обороны и радары. Соединенные Штаты согласились продавать вертолеты, военно-морские двигатели, компоненты артиллерийских боеприпасов и чертежи и проекты артиллерийского завода боеприпасов. Покупки часто бывают небольшими, представляя собой немногим больше, чем "образцы". Китай, как представляется, желает изучить не только эксплуатационные характеристики западных систем, но и технологии, связанные с их производством. Учитывая масштабность задачи модернизации и конкурирующие потребности в иностранной валюте, крупномасштабные закупки иностранного оборудования представляются маловероятными. НОАК действительно нуждается в знании новейших иностранных военных технологий. Если Китай решит начать внутреннее производство современных оружейных систем, то должны быть приобретены и детали технологии материалов. Небольшие образцы могут многое сделать для обеспечения этого, но сложные системы могут быть предоставлены наиболее дешево только в том случае, если Пекин будет запрашивать лицензионные контракты на совместное производство, которые включают консультации и помощь в производстве основного сырья, а также в производстве и сборке отдельных систем. Такие контракты влекут за собой политические и экономические издержки в том, что касается отношений между Западным поставщиком и другими дальневосточными странами.
   Несмотря на период экономической перестройки, который привел к последовательному сокращению оборонного бюджета с 1980 года, бюджет этого года вновь демонстрирует небольшой рост (который, безусловно, будет поглощен инфляцией). Таким образом, темпы модернизации будут по - прежнему медленными, хотя многое делается для того, чтобы сделать эти силы более профессиональными и эффективными-путем реорганизации, улучшения подготовки кадров и отмены квот на гражданское производство. НОАК также получает выгоду от общей модернизации китайской промышленности.
   Ядерное оружие
   Комитет по военным вопросам (ВКП) Коммунистической партии Китая непосредственно контролирует стратегические ракетные силы, в состав которых входят МБР, БРПЛ и бомбардировщики. Модернизация продолжается, но, как представляется, сосредоточена на двигателях и, возможно, управлении. С 1984 года не было зарегистрировано никаких новых ядерных испытаний. К тому времени было проведено 27 испытаний в атмосфере; возможно, было проведено до пяти подземных испытаний. Китай объявил в марте 1986 года, что он не будет снова проводить испытания в атмосфере.
   Два типа МБР развернуты лишь в небольшом количестве: один (DF-5) с дальностью действия около 15 000 км, другой (DF-4) - около 7000 км. Никаких указаний на развертывание нескольких боеголовок получено не было, однако ракета Long March (CZ)-2 была успешно использована (и, таким образом, испытана) в качестве носителя для трех космических исследовательских спутников, а в сентябре 1985 года поступило сообщение о том, что была испытана ракета DF-5 с несколькими боеголовками. До сих пор все баллистические ракеты были заправлены жидким топливом. Согласно сообщениям, разрабатываемые твердотопливные ракетные двигатели были испытаны на МБР 1980 года, могут быть для МБР DF-5 и, вероятно, для БРПЛ. Первые китайские ПЛАРБ - это лодки класса Xia с 12 Julang-1 (CSS-NX-4 = Giant Wave) БРПЛ - вариант DF-3 БРПД - дальность которых, как сообщается, составляет порядка 2200-3000 км (вероятно, ближе к нижней цифре). Еще четыре ПЛАРБ, как говорят, строятся, некоторые - возможно, отдельный класс Daqingyu - сообщается, имеют 16 пусковых труб. В настоящее время на вооружении находятся три атомные подводные лодки класса Han с шестью ракетными установками; крылатая ракета, которую они якобы несут, была испытана на дальность 1600 км. Продолжают поступать сообщения о существовании тактических ядерных боеприпасов: артиллерии, ракет и мин. Говорят, что разрабатывается вариант советской FROG-7". Если бы такие боеприпасы имелись в наличии, то истребители могли бы использоваться для тактической доставки, а на более дальних дистанциях некоторые из 120 средних бомбардировщиков Н-6 ВВС с боевым радиусом до 3000 км могли бы быть ядерными.
   Обычные вооруженные силы
   НОАК включает все виды вооружений, включая военно-морские и воздушные элементы. НОАК, будучи по существу оборонительной силой, по-прежнему испытывает нехватку средств и материально-технической поддержки для проведения длительных крупномасштабных операций на любом значительном расстоянии за пределами китайских границ.
   Военные события
   Сокращение численности Вооруженных сил продолжается, причем основную тяжесть первоначальных сокращений берут на себя сухопутные войска, в то время как сокращения для Военно-Морского Флота и авиации еще впереди. Осуществляется также программа реорганизации 1982 года. Полевые армии (ежанджун) теперь являются "групповыми армиями" (Джитуанджури). Региональная армия была реорганизована в 7 военных регионов (MR) с 29 военными округами (MD; или "Провинциальными военными районами"). В мирное время эти районы выполняют в основном административную функцию. В военное время военный регион может стать фронтом (жаньсянь) или объединиться в стратегические сектора (жаньлуэгу). Дивизиями основных сил полевых армий (МФ) командует Генеральный штаб Министерства национальной обороны. В военное время командование будет передано фронту или стратегическому сектору, соответствующему региону, в котором дислоцируются дивизии и которые уже несут ответственность за управление ими. Артиллерийские, инженерные и железнодорожные подразделения, которые до 1983 года были независимыми, в настоящее время контролируются департаментами Министерства национальной обороны.
   Военно-морской флот добавил еще шесть дизельных подводных лодок типа 033 и три фрегата Jianghu. Программы строительства для патрульных судов Hainan и быстроходных ударных судов Shantou продолжаются, и в настоящее время на вооружении находится около 60 таких судов, однако катера Shanghai, катера на подводных крыльях Huchwan и более мелкие прибрежные суда - все они в разной степени сократились. На вооружении находится новый скоростной ракетный корабль класса Haiju, детали его вооружения пока неясны. Морская авиация по-прежнему базируются на береговых аэродромах, а независимые силы береговой обороны, как представляется, получают ПКР HY-4. Военно-морской компонент остается в основном силами береговой обороны, неспособными к дальнему действию. Воздушная составляющая НОАК организована по 8 регионам и 3 небольшим географическим командованиям; боевая организация аналогична советской системе, с воздушными армиями дивизий по 3 полка в каждом по 45 самолетов. Она также остается по существу силами с ограниченным оборонительным потенциалом.
   Основные системы вооружения включают в себя ОБТ Типа-59, легкие танки Тип-60/-63 и Тип-62 и БТР тип - 531; модифицированные дизельные подводные лодки средней дальности R-и W-класса, эсминцы с ПКР, фрегаты, быстроходные патрульные катера, транспорты-амфибии и десантные суда; истребители J-6/-7 и Q-5, ЗРК SA-2. Согласно сообщениям, значительная часть устаревшего иностранного оборудования снимается, хотя его, вероятно, можно сохранить для целей подготовки кадров или для выполнения резервных обязанностей. Темпы производства в лучшем случае являются лишь общими оценками. Фактические ставки в некоторых категориях 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, Иран, Пакистан и Танзания.
   Валовой национальный продукт и расходы на оборону
   За последние несколько лет Китай продемонстрировал замечательный экономический рост, при этом средний реальный рост ВВП и ВНП колебался в пределах от 8% до 12%. (В 1985 году темпы роста ВНП составили около 11-12%). Однако, хотя Китай сейчас является членом МВФ, по-прежнему существуют разногласия относительно оценки размера китайской экономики в долларовом эквиваленте.
   Такое быстрое экономическое развитие, как представляется, не находит отражения в оборонном секторе. В последние четыре года оборонные бюджеты фактически сократились относительно ВНП и государственным расходам. Однако, как и в большинстве социалистических стран, оборонные бюджеты, как правило, представляются в рамках государственного бюджета в виде единой категории и не отражают расходы на оборону, потраченные другими министерствами и секторами экономики. В свете не только усилий НОАК по модернизации и, возможно, некоторого повышения административной эффективности, но и стремительного расширения отечественной военной промышленности - для национального потребления и особенно для экспорта - трудно оценить реальные затраты оборонного сектора. Центральное Разведывательное Управление * утверждает, что сокращение расходов на оборону отражает "снижение приоритетности" сектора в программе экономических реформ; но, хотя это верно в той мере, в какой оборона остается лишь четвертым приоритетом в планах модернизации, верно также и то, что другие сектора экономики несут значительное военное бремя, начиная от улучшенных программ здравоохранения и заканчивая обновленным промышленным оборудованием. Поэтому официальные бюджетные показатели следует рассматривать как показатель повышения эффективности военной администрации, а не как показатель фактических расходов. представляется вероятным, что процесс "рационализации" наряду со значительным сокращением людских ресурсов позволит осуществить значительную модернизацию, даже при ограниченных бюджетах.

   serve with the Regulars for 30-40 days per year; org into about 75 cadre divisions and 2,000 regts, a Naval (Maritime) Militia with
   armed trawlers, and a major AD component.
Ordinary Militia: up to 6 million (ages 18-35), incl the Urban Militia, receive some basic training but are generally unarmed.
   Some play a local AD role; all support the security forces.
People's Armed Police Forces (Ministry of Security): ex-soldiers and personnel transferred from some 4 LF divs;
   Internal Defence divs and 30 indep regts; border security, patrol and internal security duties.

OTHER ASIAN AND PACIFIC COUNTRIES

   Security Treaties
   The United States has mutual security and co-operation treaties with Japan (1951, 1960), the Republic of Korea (1954), the Philippines (1951, 1983), Australia and New Zealand (1952). 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, although 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.
   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.
   The 1985 refusal of the New Zealand Government to permit visits by nuclear-propelled or nuclear-armed warships was interpreted by the US as being contrary to the spirit of the ANZUS alliance. Direct co-operation between the US and New Zealand was suspended by the Reagan Administration, which has stated that, as the New Zealand Government has legislated to ban visits by nuclear warships, it regards itself as free of obligations under ANZUS towards New Zealand for as long as that legislation remains in effect. Bilateral co-operation continues between Australia and New Zealand. US-Australian links remain close.
   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 its forces in March 1976, but New Zealand troops remain in Singapore, as do Australian air units in Malaysia and Singapore, with a small army component attached. Australian and New Zealand naval units visit Malaysia and Singapore regularly.
   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.
   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). lt concluded a Stationing of Forces Agreement with Afghanistan in April 1980. Bulgaria has Friendship Treaties with Cambodia (1960), Laos (1979), Mongolia (1967) and Vietnam (1979), as have Czechoslovakia with Laos (1980) 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 Kampuchea (Khmer Rouge) 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 defence and security matters.
   Bilateral Agreements
   The Soviet Union signed an agreement with India in December 1982 which provides for collaboration on design and manufacture of naval vessels; other and subsequent co-production arrangements exist. The US also has 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 continue 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 and, together with three smaller groups, established it as the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT). A small British naval contingent is 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 smaller groups of islands 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.
   Australia has an agreement and subsidiary arrangements for the development of and assistance to the Papua New Guinea Defence Force, and currently 135 Australian personnel are on loan to Papua New Guinea. Under a number of arrangements Australia 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 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.
   Military Developments
   There is little real evidence on the state of Afghanistan's forces. Reports suggest they play an increasingly active role against the Mujaheddin, which would argue that they will receive more and perhaps better equipment. The only evidence that this has happened is the replacement of the Su-7 by Su-22 FGA. Earlier assessments of Mi-24 Hind strengths appear to have been high. On the other hand, reports of desertions and of failure to report for military service when conscripted continue to indicate that morale is low. On the guerrilla side, efforts are being made to unify guerrilla forces and co-ordinate their actions. The Mujaheddin have suffered severe casualties in pitched battles with Government and Soviet forces. The latter's 'scorched earth' policies have reduced the guerrillas' ability to live and conceal themselves in the populated areas. The Mujaheddin still have trouble getting adequate arms, particularly anti-air weapons; there is no firm evidence that the muchheralded Stinger SAM have actually reached the groups in the field. The Government and its Soviet ally still have not won the war. Nor have the guerrillas lost it. Yet Government consolidation continues to improve, and the rebels are coming under increasing pressure.
   The Dibb Report on the future role of the Australian forces is too recent for its impact to be reflected in force structure changes. The roles of the Army and Air Force have received special emphasis, and a strengthening of the Navy's submarine capability is also possible as a result of the report.
   Burma's Army has increased its efforts against the many rebel forces. Some local successes have been reported, but no end to the conflict is in sight, and the Government has not been able to procure the equipment necessary to give its field units the mobility and firepower they lack.
   The Indian Army entry this year has been expanded on the basis of additional knowledge - not as the result of any expansion ofthat Service. Deliveries of the T-72 tank order continue. The purchase of 400 Bofors FH-7B 155mm howitzers from Sweden adds a new source to India's list of suppliers. Its Navy has bought the British Hermes ASW carrier, which will perhaps use a mix of Sea Harrier and Sea King. The Air Force continues to replace its Marut FGA with MiG-23BN; the Ajeet fighter earlier reported as being phased out, appears to have earned a reprieve, with additional orders being placed. Pakistan has added some 50 M-48 and perhaps another 50 Type-59 tanks. The Army has also received a small quantity of RBS-70 SAM. No significant deliveries are reported for the other two Services.
   The internal security challenge faced by the Sri Lankan government has resulted in the procurement of a greater quantity and variety of equipment than at almost any time in the country's history. Because the process is continuing, quantities of individual items are difficult to confirm. There is no doubt, however, that the expanding force will take time to absorb the armour, artillery, patrol craft, aircraft and helicopters reported.
   Malaysia has received some 120 SIBMAS reconnaissance vehicles, and the second A-4 FGA squadron is now operational. The long-reported Naval Air element is still expected, but there is no evidence that aircraft for it to use have been received. There has been no significant change reported for Singapore or for Indonesia. The role of the Philippines' forces remains that of internal security. Reports that reorganization is to take place have not so far been translated into visible change. There appears to have been a substantial increase in the Thai Marine force; it may be that an earlier increase was missed.
   Little change has been reported in Vietnam, or in Laos. In Kampuchea, the Heng Samrin Government appears to be continuing its slow development of the armed forces. An additional infantry division has apparently been formed, and there are reports of increases in the inventories of tanks, artillery and aircraft. The opposing Coalition of Democratic Kampuchea is confining its operations to small-scale raids and sabotage. These appear, however, to be quite deep inside Kampuchea and relatively widespread.
   In North-east Asia, North Korea is apparently also carrying out a measure of reorganization. Details are as yet unavailable, apart from some details of the artillery field structure which represent new information rather than evidence of change. The Navy lost a submarine last year; it has probably been replaced from domestic production. Reports have also appeared of the existence of perhaps five midget submarines which could be used to infiltrate agents. A new Fast Attack Craft type has been reported; no details are available. The Air Force has received some 50 MiG-23 interceptors which will significantly enhance the mix of MiG-19 and -21 already in inventory.
   South Korea has received additional M-48A5 tanks and some M-110 203mm SP howitzers. The naval HDF-2100 frigate programme is well under way, with two Harpoon equipped Ulsan-class now in service. The Japanese modernization programmes continue. The Type-74 tank continues to replace the Type-61. Additional Type-73 APC are in inventory, and the 155mm FH-70 SP howitzer is now being delivered. One new Type-171 and two new Type-122 guided missile destroyers are now in service.
   Economic Factors
   After the economic recovery of 1983-4, the region's economic growth fell from just under 5% in 1984 to just above 3.5% in 1985. Although international trade rose by some 9%, trading patterns were very uneven, in particular within the Asian region. Equally uneven was regional economic output. China led with a remarkable growth rate of 10-11%, while the Philippines suffered another decline in growth of-5%.
   At least four countries achieved growth rates of 6-7% (Burma, South Korea, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea), while those of most others ranged between 4% and 5%. Only New Zealand appears to have achieved no growth at all, while at the same time increasing its debt to some $16.0 bn.
   In comparison to other developing regions in the world, Asia is still far better off - despite occasional economic downturns. Unlike Africa, which in 1985 experienced a per capita real GDP decrease of 1.3%, Asia achieved a regional increase of 3.8%. Even the states with low per capita income (India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) have achieved notable economic growth.
   Some economies, however, experienced contractions as a result of their dependence on oil-generated revenues. The incomes of Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia were seriously affected as oil demand and prices fell drastically (Indonesia lost about 20% of its sales revenue over 1984, and Brunei about 30%). The international oil price collapse had positive effects on the oil importers; if, as many observers believe, prices stabilize over the next few years at around $15-18 per barrel, this would have a substantial impact on their economies. (Last year the non-industrialized Asian states spent some $35 bn on oil imports, so a 50% reduction in oil prices would significantly affect their foreign trade balances).
   Unlike the situation in Latin America and some African states, inflation has also been well contained, with the Philippines (22%),. New Zealand (17%) Pakistan (10%) and Bangladesh (10%) the worst cases in the region. Debt, however, has also become a major issue. Asia's toial debt has reached $239 bn, an increase of some 12% over 1984. Again, the weakest state is the Philippines, with a gross external debt/GDP ratios of over 80%, followed by South Korea, Malaysia and New Zealand with about 60% debt/GDP ratios. Although in relation to Africa and the western hemisphere the debt issue has not yet reached crisis proportions, some countries are heading for repayment problems: the Philippines at present has a debt/service ratio of 190%, followed by Australia, South Korea, New Zealand and Thailand with some 60%. Until the US and European economies attain a higher growth rate the newly industrializing countries of the region will continue to experience a slowdown in growth, if not actual recession.
   As the principal oil producers in the Gulf reduce their spending - due to drastically reduced incomes - and with the US Congress becoming more protectionist, the Asian countries (especially ASEAN) will be forced to accelerate their trade and industrial co-operation negotiations. In the short run, greater regional co-operation may well be the salvation of the rather fragile economies of the region.
  

ДРУГИЕ СТРАНЫ АЗИИ И ТИХОГО ОКЕАНА

   Договоры о безопасности
   Соединенные Штаты имеют договоры о взаимной безопасности и сотрудничестве с Японией (1951, 1960 годы), Республикой Корея (1954 год), Филиппинами (1951, 1983 годы), Австралией и Новой Зеландией (1952 год). Манильский пакт, подписанный 8 сентября 1954 года Австралией, Великобританией, Новой Зеландией, Пакистаном, Соединенными Штатами, Таиландом, Филиппинами и Францией, остается в силе, хотя впоследствии Пакистан и Франция вышли из него, а Организация Договора о Юго-Восточной Азии (СЕАТО), созданная для его осуществления, была распущена в 1977 году. Пакт призывает каждую сторону 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 основывались на этом пакте.
   В 1951 году Австралия, Новая Зеландия и Соединенные Штаты подписали трехсторонний договор (ANZUS), который вступил в силу 29 апреля 1952 года и является бессрочным. Каждый из них соглашается "действовать в ответ на общую опасность" в случае нападения на столичную или островную территорию любого из них или на их вооруженные силы, суда или самолеты в Тихом океане.
   Отказ правительства Новой Зеландии разрешить посещение страны военными кораблями с ядерными двигателями или ядерными боевыми кораблями был истолкован США как противоречащий духу альянса ANZUS. Прямое сотрудничество между США и Новой Зеландией было приостановлено администрацией Рейгана, которая заявила, что, поскольку правительство Новой Зеландии приняло законодательство о запрете посещений ядерных военных кораблей, оно считает себя свободным от обязательств по ANZUS в отношении Новой Зеландии до тех пор, пока это законодательство остается в силе. Продолжается двустороннее сотрудничество между Австралией и Новой Зеландией. Связи между США и Австралией остаются тесными.
   С 1 ноября 1971 года вступили в силу Соглашения об обороне пяти держав (Австралии, Малайзии, Новой Зеландии, Сингапура и Великобритании), касающиеся обороны Малайзии и Сингапура. В случае любого организованного или поддерживаемого извне вооруженного нападения или угрозы нападения на Малайзию или Сингапур правительства пяти стран будут проводить совместные консультации с целью принятия решения о том, какие меры следует принимать совместно или по отдельности. Британия вывела свои войска в марте 1976 года, но новозеландские войска остались в Сингапуре, как и австралийские авиационные подразделения в Малайзии и Сингапуре, с небольшим армейским компонентом. Австралийские и новозеландские военно-морские подразделения регулярно посещают Малайзию и Сингапур.
   Ассоциация государств Юго-Восточной Азии (ASEAN), созданная в 1967 году Индонезией, Малайзией, Сингапуром, Таиландом и Филиппинами и объединенная Брунеем в 1984 году, призвана содействовать региональному экономическому развитию, а не военному сотрудничеству. Что касается содействия региональному миру и безопасности, то он обеспокоен присутствием Вьетнама в Кампучии. Он поддерживает Кампучийские движения сопротивления в политическом плане, однако сообщения о поставках оружия повстанцам, как полагают, являются результатом национальных, а не многосторонних инициатив.
   Советский Союз заключил договоры о дружбе, сотрудничестве и взаимной помощи с Афганистаном (1978 год), Индией (1971 год), Монголией (1966 год), Северной Кореей (1961 год) и Вьетнамом (1978 год). в апреле 1980 года она заключила соглашение о дислокации сил с Афганистаном. Болгария имеет договоры о дружбе с Камбоджей (1960 год), Лаосом (1979 год), Монголией (1967 год) и Вьетнамом (1979 год), а также Чехословакия с Лаосом (1980 год) и Вьетнамом (1980 год) и Афганистаном (1981 год), Венгрия с Афганистаном (1982 год) и Восточная Германия с Вьетнамом (1977 год), Кампучией (1980 год) и Афганистаном (1982 год).
   Китайская народная республика заключила договоры о дружбе и ненападении с Афганистаном, Бирмой и Непалом (все 1960 года) и Кампучией (Красные Кхмеры), а также 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 Договор о Союзе или дружбе и сотрудничестве в ноябре 1982 года, который разрешает обмен военными данными, специалистами и поставками. Северная Корея и Танзания заключили соглашение по вопросам обороны и безопасности.
   Двусторонние соглашение
   В декабре 1982 года Советский Союз подписал с Индией соглашение, предусматривающее сотрудничество в области проектирования и производства военно-морских судов; существуют другие и последующие соглашения о совместном производстве. США также имеют соглашения о военном сотрудничестве с Австралией (1951, 1963, 1974 и 1980 годы); и соглашение о военной помощи с Таиландом. Соглашения о поставках и производстве оружия с Тайванем продолжают действовать в соответствии с Законом о тайваньских отношениях 1979 года. США также оказывают постоянную военную помощь Индонезии, Южной Корее, Малайзии, Пакистану, Филиппинам и Таиланду. Имеются крупные базы США в Японии, Южной Корее и на Филиппинах (соглашение возобновлено в 1983 году), а также военно-воздушные (В-52) и военно-морские заправочные базы в Северной и Западной Австралии соответственно.
   В 1965 году Великобритания отделила архипелаг Чагос (в который входил Диего-Гарсия) от Маврикия и вместе с тремя меньшими группами создала его как британскую территорию в Индийском океане (BIOT). Небольшой британский военно-морской контингент развернут на Диего-Гарсия. Соглашения 1966, 1972 и 1976 годов предусматривали создание крупного объекта военно-морской и воздушной поддержки США на неопределенный срок. С тех пор три небольшие группы островов были переданы Сейшельским островам.
   Британия заключила соглашение об обороне со Шри-Ланкой (1974 год) и с Брунеем, в соответствии с которым последний получает войска Гуркха, а британские силы-учебный район.
   Австралия заключила соглашение и заключила дополнительные соглашения о создании Сил обороны Папуа-Новой Гвинеи и оказании им помощи, и в настоящее время 135 австралийских военнослужащих предоставлены Папуа-Новой Гвинее в аренду. В соответствии с рядом договоренностей Австралия поставила вооружение 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, возможно, охватывали размещение вьетнамских войск в Лаосе. Аналогичная серия соглашений, по-видимому, была заключена между Вьетнамом и режимом Хэн Самрина в Кампучии в феврале 1979 года и декабре 1982 года.
   Военные события
   Существует мало реальных свидетельств о состоянии афганских сил. Согласно сообщениям, они играют все более активную роль в борьбе с моджахедами, что свидетельствует о том, что они получат больше и, возможно, лучшее оборудование. Единственным свидетельством того, что это произошло, является замена Су-7 на Су-22. Более ранние оценки силы Ми-24, как представляется, были завышены. С другой стороны, сообщения о дезертирстве и неявке на военную службу по призыву по-прежнему свидетельствуют о низком моральном духе. На Партизанской стороне предпринимаются усилия по объединению партизанских сил и координации их действий. Моджахеды понесли тяжелые потери в боях с правительственными и советскими войсками. Политика последних в отношении "выжженной земли" снизила способность партизан жить и скрываться в населенных районах. Моджахеды по-прежнему испытывают трудности с получением адекватного оружия, особенно противовоздушного; нет никаких твердых доказательств того, что ЗРК Stinger достиг группировок на местах. Правительство и его советский союзник до сих пор не выиграли войну. И партизаны ее не проиграли. Тем не менее, консолидация правительства продолжает улучшаться, и повстанцы подвергаются все большему давлению.
   Доклад Дибб о будущей роли Австралийских сил является слишком недавним для того, чтобы его воздействие отразилось на изменениях в структуре сил. Особое внимание уделяется роли армии и Военно-Воздушных сил, и в результате доклада возможно также укрепление подводного потенциала ВМС.
   Армия Бирмы активизировала свои усилия против многочисленных повстанческих сил. Сообщалось о некоторых успехах на местах, но конца конфликту не видно, и правительство не смогло закупить вооружение, необходимое для обеспечения своих полевых подразделений мобильностью и огневой мощью, которых им не хватает.
   Вступление индийской армии в этом году было расширено на основе дополнительных знаний - не в результате какого-либо расширения этой службы. Поставки танка Т-72 продолжаются. Покупка 400 гаубиц Bofors FH-7B 155mm из Швеции добавляет новый источник в список поставщиков Индии. Его флот купил британский авианосец Hermes, который, возможно, будет использовать смесь Sea Harrier и Sea King. ВВС продолжают заменять свой Marut на Миг-23БН; истребитель Ajeet, ранее сообщенный как поэтапный, похоже, заработал отсрочку, с размещением дополнительных заказов. Пакистан добавил около 50 танков М-48 и, возможно, еще 50 танков типа 59. Армия также получила небольшое количество ПЗРК RBS-70. По двум другим службам не сообщается о значительных поставках.
   Проблема внутренней безопасности, с которой сталкивается правительство Шри-Ланки, привела к закупке большего количества и большего разнообразия оборудования, чем когда-либо в истории страны. Поскольку процесс продолжается, количество отдельных элементов трудно подтвердить. Однако нет никаких сомнений в том, что расширяющимся силам потребуется время для поглощения бронетехники, артиллерии, патрульных кораблей, самолетов и вертолетов, о которых сообщалось.
   Малайзия получила около 120 разведывательных машин SIBMAS, и в настоящее время действует вторая эскадрилья штурмовиков A-4. Давно сообщалось, что военно-морской воздушный элемент все еще ожидается, но нет никаких доказательств того, что самолеты для его использования были получены. По Сингапуру и Индонезии не было отмечено каких-либо существенных изменений. Роль филиппинских сил по-прежнему заключается в обеспечении внутренней безопасности. Сообщения о том, что реорганизация должна состояться, пока не трансформировались в заметные изменения. Как представляется, произошло существенное увеличение численности морских сил Таиланда; возможно, более раннее увеличение было упущено.
   Мало что изменилось во Вьетнаме или в Лаосе. В Кампучии, правительство Хенг Самрина, как представляется, продолжает медленное развитие вооруженных сил. По-видимому, была сформирована дополнительная пехотная дивизия, и поступают сообщения об увеличении числа танков, артиллерии и авиации. Оппозиционная коалиция Демократической Кампучии ограничивает свои операции мелкими рейдами и саботажем. Однако они, по-видимому, находятся довольно глубоко внутри Кампучии и относительно широко распространены.
   В Северо-Восточной Азии Северная Корея, по-видимому, также проводит реорганизацию. Подробности пока недоступны, за исключением некоторых деталей структуры полевой артиллерии, которые представляют собой новую информацию, а не свидетельство изменений. В прошлом году ВМС потеряли подводную лодку, вероятно, ее заменили на отечественную. Появились также сообщения о существовании, возможно, пяти миниатюрных подводных лодок, которые могут быть использованы для проникновения агентов. Сообщается о новом типе быстроходного ударного корабля; подробности отсутствуют. ВВС получили около 50 истребителей-перехватчиков МиГ-23, что значительно увеличит состав уже находящихся на вооружении МиГ-19 и -21.
   Южная Корея получила дополнительные танки М-48А5 и некоторые 203-мм гаубицы М-110. Фрегатная программа ВМС HDF-2100 идет полным ходом, в настоящее время на вооружении находятся два корабля вооруженных ракетами Harpoon класса Ulsan. Японские программы модернизации продолжаются. Танк Типа-74 продолжает заменять танк Типа-61. В наличии имеются дополнительные БТР Типа 73, и в настоящее время поставляется 155-мм гаубица FH-70 SP. В настоящее время на вооружении находятся один новый эсминец Типа-171 и два новых эсминца Типа-122.
   Экономические факторы
   После экономического подъема 1983-1984 годов экономический рост в регионе снизился с чуть менее 5% в 1984 году до чуть более 3,5% в 1985 году. Хотя международная торговля выросла примерно на 9%, торговые модели были очень неравномерными, особенно в Азиатском регионе. Столь же неравномерным был и региональный экономический выпуск. Китай лидировал с замечательными темпами роста 10-11%, в то время как Филиппины потерпели очередное снижение роста - 5%.
   По крайней мере четыре страны достигли темпов роста 6-7% (Бирма, Южная Корея, Пакистан и Папуа-Новая Гвинея), в то время как в большинстве других стран они колебались между 4% и 5%. Появляется только Новая Зеландия добилась роста нет вообще, а в то же время увеличивая свой долг до примерно 16,0 млрд долл.
   По сравнению с другими развивающимися регионами мира Азия по - прежнему находится в гораздо лучшем положении, несмотря на периодические экономические спады. В отличие от Африки, где в 1985 году реальный ВВП на душу населения сократился на 1,3%, Азия добилась регионального роста на 3,8%. Даже в государствах с низким доходом на душу населения (Индия, Пакистан и Бангладеш) добились заметного экономического роста.
   В то же время в некоторых странах наблюдался спад в результате их зависимости от поступлений от продажи нефти. Доходы Брунея, Малайзии и Индонезии серьезно пострадали, поскольку спрос на нефть и цены резко упали (Индонезия потеряла около 20% своих доходов от продаж за 1984 год, а Бруней - около 30%). Международный обвал цен на нефть оказал положительное влияние на импортеров нефти; если, как считают многие наблюдатели, цены стабилизируются в течение следующих нескольких лет на уровне около $15-18 за баррель, это окажет существенное влияние на их экономику. (В прошлом году неиндустриальные азиатские государства потратили около $35 млрд на импорт нефти, поэтому снижение цен на нефть на 50% существенно повлияло бы на их внешнеторговые балансы).
   В отличие от ситуации в Латинской Америке и некоторых африканских государствах, инфляция также была хорошо сдержана, с Филиппинами (22%). Новая Зеландия (17%) Пакистан (10%) и Бангладеш (10%) - наихудшие случаи в регионе. Однако задолженность также стала серьезной проблемой. Долг Азии достиг $ 239 млрд, увеличившись примерно на 12% по сравнению с 1984 годом. Опять же, самым слабым государством являются Филиппины с валовым соотношением внешнего долга / ВВП более 80%, за которыми следуют Южная Корея, Малайзия и Новая Зеландия с соотношением долга/ВВП около 60%. Хотя в отношении Африки и Западного полушария проблема задолженности еще не достигла кризисных масштабов, некоторые страны сталкиваются с проблемами погашения: Филиппины в настоящее время имеют соотношение долга/обслуживания 190%, за которыми следуют Австралия, Южная Корея, Новая Зеландия и Таиланд с примерно 60%. До тех пор, пока экономика США и Европы не достигнет более высоких темпов роста, новые индустриальные страны региона будут продолжать испытывать замедление роста, если не фактическую рецессию.
   Поскольку основные производители нефти в Персидском заливе сокращают свои расходы - из - за резкого сокращения доходов - и Конгресс США становится более протекционистским, азиатские страны (особенно АСЕАН) будут вынуждены ускорить свои переговоры о торговле и промышленном сотрудничестве. В краткосрочной перспективе более широкое региональное сотрудничество вполне может стать спасением довольно хрупкой экономики региона.

Caribbean and 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. lt came into force on 3 December 1948, has been applied some fourteen times since and was expanded in July 1985. 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 (Canada and Guyana are observers) - 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.
   The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America (Tlatelolco Treaty).
   This treaty, which permits the peaceful use of nuclear materials and facilities but bans 'testing, use, manufacture, production or any acquisition of nuclear weapons', 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 (1977) 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 and the US (1971), China, France (1973) and the USSR (1978) 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; the 1977 Treaties which resulted came into force in October 1979. About 40% of the former Canal Zone will remain under US control until 31 December 1999. Defence and neutrality 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 Canal's neutrality after the year 2000. On 13 June 1984 Peru agreed to train Panama's naval forces.
   Belize (formerly British Honduras) became independent on 21 September 1981. Britain agreed to leave troops 'for an appropriate time' as protection and to train the Belizean defence forces. The US has also provided equipment and training. Under the 'Commonwealth Pact' (October 1981), if a threat to Belize's independence occurs, Britain, Barbados, Bahamas, Canada, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will meet and consult together regarding appropriate action to be taken.
   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 Honduranbased 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.
   In July 1981 Antigua-Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts-Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines formed the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Its goals included adopting common points of view on international issues and the promotion of unity and solidarity among the members while defending their sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. A Defence and Security Committee was formed.
   On 29 October 1982 a Regional Security System (RSS) was created following a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Antigua-Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, St Lucia and St Vincent. They were joined by St Kitts-Nevis on 8 February 1984 and Grenada in June 1985. With US support a beginning has been made on the creation of a Regional Coast Guard and a number of 80-man national police Special Service Units. Joint exercises have been held involving Antigua-Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, St KittsNevis and St Lucia and small US forces. The US has given military aid to the RSS.
   The US has had a bilateral agreement with Cuba for jurisdiction and control over Guantanamo Bay since 1934. In 1960 the US stated that this could be modified or abrogated only by mutual agreement and that it had no intention of giving such agreement. It 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 and a defence treaty with Honduras in May 1985.
   The USSR has no known formal defence agreements with any of the states in the area.
   Cuba signed a 25-year Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation with Vietnam in October 1982, and a similar 20-year treaty with North Korea in March 1986. Cuba and the USSR supplied arms to Grenada before October 1983 and to Nicaragua.
   Most countries in the region, however, have obtained their major equipment from Western, rather than Communist, countries. Argentina signed and ratified a Treaty of Peace and Friendship with Chile in early 1986, and an agreement with Israel for the joint production of TAM medium tanks. Belize signed a training agreement with Canada in June 1985.
   Regional Military Developments
   Argentina and Brazil are designing and manufacturing for export their own military equipment. Brazil has sold equipment 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.
   The military situation in Central America remains a cause for concern. Nicaraguan government forces show some increase in total strength, mostly in the numbers of Active Reservists and Militia; equipment totals seem to have levelled off, although figures must be used with caution. Opposition force strengths, stated to be higher than in 1985, may not accurately reflect the active elements of those forces. Indications over the past twelve months suggest that these elements (the 'contras') have been generally unsuccessful against the government forces. A similar situation exists in El Salvador, where a stalemate seems to exist. Here the Navy and Air Force have shown some increase. The Opposition elements' strengths are said to have fallen slightly in almost all groups. Data is still contradictory, and earlier totals may have been high. The Honduran forces seem to have been significantly increased, though equipment levels remain at about the same level.
   In South America generally, economic constraints continue significantly to affect force levels. Argentina is perhaps the worst case, with an overall drop in personnel of 27%. The Navy has been worst affected, losing about half its strength; a number of vessels, including some still under construction, are reported as being for sale, though attempts are being made to reverse this decision. The Chilean forces remain roughly the same, although some reorganization is reported. The Brazilian armed forces are also undergoing a reorganization; the Air Force shows an increase in both strength and combat aircraft.
   There is one change in presentation in this section. The Venezuelan National Guard, previously cited as a para-military Force, is part of the Armed Forces. New totals reflect that fact.
   Economic Factors
   After its decline in 1982 and 1983, the region's GDP grew in 1984 and 1985, by 3.2% and 2.8% respectively. However, this translates into a meagre 0.5% increase in GDP per capita. Per capita GDP is still 9% below the level of 1980.
   If the above-average performance of Brazil (7%) is excluded, this sombre picture turns bleaker, with GDP per capita falling by around 1%. Economies which had shown growth in 1984 were stagnant in 1985, as was the case for Chile and Colombia. Others suffered dramatic falls (8% for Bolivia and 4% for Argentina). Apart from Brazil, only Cuba, Mexico and Paraguay returned some economic growth, according to the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and Caribbean.
   The inflation record is not much better, with just five countries out of 21 showing figures below 10%. However, in the second half of 1985 the introduction of anti-inflationary packages in the three countries with highest rates - Argentina, Bolivia and Peru did bring inflation under some control there. Nevertheless, Bolivia still registered the highest inflation rate (over 11,000%), followed by Argentina (460%), Nicaragua (233%), Brazil (218%), and Peru (170%).
   The region's massive $368-bn foreign debt continues to pose the main constraint to economic growth. Debt-service ratios leave few resources for domestic investment, and have converted Latin America into a net capital exporter in 1985. Brazil overtook Mexico as the largest debtor, both of them having debts exceeding $100 bn, followed by Argentina with $52 bn. Given the low level of GDP growth and the vagaries of primary commodity markets, on which most of the region's economies depend for their export income, there seems to be little prospect of a rapid economic recovery. Oil exporters are being badly affected, whilst oil importers benefit only slightly. Most of the countries in the region have been involved in debt renegotiation talks, successful conclusion of which has been dependent on their acceptance of IMF-modelled economic packages.
   The poor economic performance is reflected in attempts to control defence budgets. Argentina's shows a small increase after two years of major readjustments, but is still below the levels registered between 1978 and 1983. Peru and Colombia are fighting insurgencies and, despite limited funds, seem likely to allocate additional resources for this purpose. At the same time, their Defence Departments will be asked to economize where possible; Peru, for example, is understood to be trying to sell some of its air inventory. Brazil, however, has started an ambitious modernization of its forces, which might lead to increased expenditures over the rest of the decade. Finally, no end to the conflicts in Central America is in sight; defence expenditure and military aid will probably continue to grow.
  

Карибский бассейн и Латинская Америка

  
   Континентальные договоры и соглашения
   Акт Чапультепека.
   Подписан Аргентиной, Боливией, Бразилией, Венесуэлой, Гаити, Гватемалой, Гондурасом, Доминиканской Республикой, Колумбией, Коста-Рикой, Кубой, Мексикой, Никарагуа, Панамой, Парагваем, Перу, США, Уругваем, Чили и Эквадором в марте и апреле 1945 года. В этом законе было заявлено, что в случае любой агрессии через границы, установленные договором, или угрозы такой агрессии подписавшие его стороны будут проводить консультации для согласования мер вплоть до применения вооруженной силы для ее предотвращения или отражения.
   Межамериканский договор о взаимной помощи (договор Рио).
   Подписанный в сентябре 1947 года всеми участниками закона Чапультепека, а также Сальвадором и Тринидадом и Тобаго, за исключением Эквадора и Никарагуа, этот договор расширяет действие этого закона, обязывает подписавшие его стороны урегулировать споры между собой мирным путем и предусматривает коллективную самооборону в случае, если какой-либо член подвергнется внешнему нападению. она вступила в силу 3 декабря 1948 года, с тех пор применялась четырнадцать раз и была расширена в июле 1985 года. Куба вышла из состава совета в марте 1960 года.
   Устав Организации Американских Государств (ОАГ).
   От апреля 1948 года Устав охватывает деклараций на основании договора от Рио. Члены ОАГ-подписавшие закон Чапультепека плюс Антигуа и Барбуда, Барбадос, Гренада, Доминика, Сальвадор, Сент-Китс - Невис, Сент-Люсия, Сент-Винсент, Суринам, Тринидад и Тобаго (Гайана и Канада являются наблюдателями) и Ямайка - обязаны урегулировать внутренние споры мирным путем и принимать коллективные меры в случае внешнего нападения на любого подписавшего. Он имеет постоянный совет, уполномоченный созывать совещания министров иностранных дел для рассмотрения чрезвычайных ситуаций. Каждый член имеет один голос в каждом агентстве ОАГ.
   Договор о запрещении ядерного оружия в Латинской Америке (договор Тлателолко).
   Этот договор, который разрешает мирное использование ядерных материалов и установок, но запрещает "испытания, применение, производство, производство или любое приобретение ядерного оружия", 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 это не сделают все другие латиноамериканские государства. Куба и Гайана не подписали его. Поэтому договор не действует для этих пяти стран. Великобритания и Нидерланды ратифицировали его (1977 год) в отношении территорий в пределах договорного района, за которые они несут международную ответственность, и подписали с Францией и США протокол I (который обязывает государства за пределами региона принимать для своих территорий в пределах этого района договорные ограничения в отношении размещения или хранения ядерного оружия); Великобритания и США (1971 год), Китай, Франция (1973 год) и СССР (1978 год) подписали протокол II (обязательство не применять или не угрожать применением ядерного оружия против участников Договора). Агентство было создано для контроля за соблюдением.
   Региональное соглашение
   Договор 1903 года с Республикой Панамой, предоставлявший Соединенным Штатам фактические суверенные права на бессрочное пользование зоной канала, был пересмотрен; договоры 1977 года вступили в силу в октябре 1979 года. Около 40% бывшей зоны канала останется под контролем США до 31 декабря 1999 года. Защита и нейтралитет канала будут совместной ответственностью обеих стран, причем Панама будет играть все более активную роль вплоть до полного присоединения канала к своему суверенитету. США гарантировали нейтралитет канала после 2000 года. 13 июня 1984 года Перу согласилась обучить военно-морские силы Панамы.
   Белиз (бывший Британский Гондурас) получила независимость 21 сентября 1981 года. Британия согласилась оставить войска "на соответствующее время" для защиты и подготовки белизских Сил обороны. США также предоставили вооружение и обучение. В соответствии с "пактом Содружества" (октябрь 1981 года) в случае возникновения угрозы независимости Белиза Британия, Барбадос, Багамские острова, Гайана, Канада, Тринидад и Тобаго и Ямайка соберутся и проведут совместные консультации относительно принятия надлежащих мер.
   Центральноамериканский Совет обороны (CONDECA) был создан в 1965 году Гватемалой, Гондурасом, Панамой и Сальвадором для сдерживания подрывной деятельности. В ноябре 1981 года Гватемала, Гондурас и Сальвадор договорились о неофициальном союзе против Кубы, Никарагуа и внутренних партизанских движений в каждой стране-участнице. США оказывают помощь гондурасским повстанцам против Никарагуа и правительству против повстанцев в Сальвадоре.
   Аналогичная региональная группа - центральноамериканское демократическое сообщество (Гондурас, Коста-Рика и Сальвадор; наблюдатели: Венесуэла, Колумбия и США) - согласилась в январе 1982 года оказать взаимную помощь в случае внешней агрессии.
   Аргентина и Перу, согласно сообщениям, заключили военный пакт в конце 1982 года.
   В июле 1981 года Антигуа-Барбуда, Гренада, Доминика, Монтсеррат, Сент-Китс-Невис, Сент-Люсия и Сент-Винсент и Гренадины образовали организацию Восточнокарибских государств (ОВКГ). Его цели включают принятие общих точек зрения по международным вопросам и поощрение единства и солидарности между членами при защите их суверенитета, территориальной целостности и независимости. Был сформирован Комитет по обороне и безопасности.
   29 октября 1982 года после подписания Антигуа-Барбудой, Барбадосом, Доминикой, Сент-Винсентом и Сент-Люсией Меморандума о взаимопонимании была создана региональная система безопасности (RSS). К ним присоединились Сент-Китс-Невис 8 февраля 1984 года и Гренада в июне 1985 года. При поддержке США было положено начало созданию региональной береговой охраны и ряда специальных подразделений Национальной полиции численностью 80 человек. Были проведены совместные учения с участием Антигуа-Барбуды, Барбадоса, Доминики, Гренады, Ямайки, Сент-Китсневиса и Сент-Люсии и небольших сил США. США оказали военную помощь РСС.
   США заключили двустороннее соглашение с Кубой о юрисдикции и контроле над заливом Гуантанамо с 1934 года. В 1960 году США заявили, что это может быть изменено или отменено только по взаимному согласию и что они не намерены давать такое согласие. Кроме того, с 1941 года она арендует 2,3 квадратных мили от Бермудских островов для военно-морской и воздушной базы. 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 году и договор об обороне с Гондурасом в мае 1985 года.
   СССР не имеет официальных оборонных соглашений ни с одним из государств региона.
   Куба подписала 25-летний договор о дружбе и сотрудничестве с Вьетнамом в октябре 1982 года и аналогичный 20-летний договор с Северной Кореей в марте 1986 года. Куба и СССР поставляли оружие Гренаде до октября 1983 года и Никарагуа.
   Однако большинство стран региона получили свое основное оборудование из западных, а не коммунистических стран. Аргентина подписала и ратифицировала Договор о мире и дружбе с Чили в начале 1986 года и соглашение с Израилем о совместном производстве средних танков TAM. Белиз подписал соглашение о профессиональной подготовке с Канадой в июне 1985 года.
   Региональные Военные События
   Аргентина и Бразилия разрабатывают и производят на экспорт собственную военную технику. Бразилия продала оборудование на Ближний Восток (Алжир, Ирак, Ливия, Тунис), в Африку (Замбия), Бельгию и Канаду, а также в Латинскую Америку и заключила соглашение о профессиональной подготовке с Суринамом (1983 год). Чили собирает самолеты Mirage -50 и легкие ВСУ по лицензии и, как сообщается, осуществила некоторые поставки в Парагвай.
   Военная ситуация в Центральной Америке по-прежнему вызывает озабоченность. Никарагуанские правительственные силы демонстрируют некоторое увеличение общей численности, главным образом численности действующих резервистов и ополченцев; общее количество техники, как представляется, выровнялось, хотя цифры следует использовать с осторожностью. Численность оппозиционных сил, которая, как утверждается, выше, чем в 1985 году, может неточно отражать активные элементы этих сил. Данные за последние двенадцать месяцев свидетельствуют о том, что эти элементы ("контрас") в целом не имели успеха в борьбе с правительственными силами. Аналогичная ситуация сложилась в Сальвадоре, где, как представляется, существует тупиковая ситуация. Военно-Морской Флот и военно-воздушные силы показали некоторое увеличение. Говорят, что сила оппозиционных элементов несколько снизилась почти во всех группах. Данные по-прежнему противоречивы, и более ранние итоги могут быть высокими. Гондурасские силы, как представляется, значительно увеличились, хотя уровень оснащенности остается примерно на том же уровне.
   В Южной Америке в целом экономические ограничения по-прежнему в значительной степени сказываются на уровне Вооруженных сил. Аргентина, пожалуй, худший случай, с общим сокращением персонала на 27%. Больше всего пострадал Военно-Морской Флот, потеряв около половины своей численности; ряд судов, в том числе некоторые еще строящиеся, как сообщается, продаются, хотя предпринимаются попытки отменить это решение. Чилийские силы остаются примерно такими же, хотя сообщается о некоторой реорганизации. Бразильские вооруженные силы также проходят реорганизацию; Военно-воздушные силы демонстрируют увеличение как силы, так и боевой авиации.
   В этом разделе есть одно изменение в представлении. Национальная гвардия Венесуэлы, ранее именовавшаяся полувоенными силами, входит в состав Вооруженных сил. Новые итоги отражают этот факт.
   Экономические факторы
   После спада в 1982 и 1983 годах ВВП региона вырос в 1984 и 1985 годах на 3,2% и 2,8% соответственно. Однако это приводит к незначительному увеличению ВВП на душу населения на 0,5%. ВВП на душу населения по-прежнему на 9% ниже уровня 1980 года.
   Если исключить показатели Бразилии выше среднего (7%), то эта мрачная картина становится еще более мрачной: ВВП на душу населения падает примерно на 1%. Экономика, показавшая рост в 1984 году, в 1985 году находилась в состоянии стагнации, как это было в случае Чили и Колумбии. Другие пострадали от резкого падения (8% для Боливии и 4% для Аргентины). По данным Экономической Комиссии ООН для Латинской Америки и Карибского бассейна, помимо Бразилии, только Куба, Мексика и Парагвай вернули некоторый экономический рост.
   Не намного лучше обстоят дела с инфляцией: только пять стран из 21 показывают показатели ниже 10%. Однако во второй половине 1985 года введение антиинфляционных пакетов в трех странах с самыми высокими показателями - Аргентине, Боливии и Перу-привело к некоторому сдерживанию инфляции. Тем не менее, Боливия по-прежнему зарегистрировала самый высокий уровень инфляции (более 11 000%), за которой следуют Аргентина (460%), Никарагуа (233%), Бразилия (218%) и Перу (170%).
   Огромный внешний долг региона в размере $ 368 млрд по-прежнему является основным препятствием для экономического роста. Коэффициенты обслуживания долга оставляют мало ресурсов для внутренних инвестиций и в 1985 году превратили Латинскую Америку в чистого экспортера капитала. Бразилия обогнала Мексику в качестве крупнейшего должника, оба из них имеют долги, превышающие $ 100 млрд, за ними следует Аргентина с $52 млрд. С учетом низкого уровня роста ВВП и неустойчивости рынков первичных сырьевых товаров, от которых зависит экспортный доход большинства стран региона, перспективы быстрого экономического восстановления представляются незначительными. Экспортеры нефти серьезно страдают, в то время как импортеры нефти получают лишь незначительную выгоду. Большинство стран региона участвовали в переговорах о пересмотре условий задолженности, успешное завершение которых зависело от принятия ими экономических пакетов, разработанных по образцу МВФ.
   Низкие экономические показатели отражаются на попытках контролировать оборонные бюджеты. Аргентина демонстрирует небольшой рост после двух лет крупных корректировок, но все еще ниже уровней, зарегистрированных между 1978 и 1983 годами. Перу и Колумбия ведут борьбу с повстанцами и, несмотря на ограниченность средств, вероятно, выделят дополнительные ресурсы на эти цели. В то же время их оборонным ведомствам будет предложено по возможности экономить; например, Перу, как предполагается, пытается продать часть своих воздушных сил. Вместе с тем Бразилия приступила к широкомасштабной модернизации своих сил, что может привести к увеличению расходов в течение оставшейся части десятилетия. Наконец, не видно конца конфликтам в Центральной Америке; расходы на оборону и военную помощь, вероятно, будут продолжать расти.

ANALYSES


Estimating the Strategic Nuclear Balance

   The debate over the nature of the Soviet American strategic nuclear balance has been confusing and frustrating for those wanting a simple comparison of US and Soviet nuclear forces. Part of the problem is that there are different reasons for estimating the balance, and the underlying assumptions and methods of calculation will vary according to the purpose to be served.
   For example, a static aggregation of strategic nuclear warheads may be sufficient to establish whether there is essential equivalence between the super-powers or whether one side is militarily superior. But in order to assess the likelihood of nuclear war (in terms of the incentives for either side to strike first in a crisis), or to determine how successful US nuclear forces might be in carrying out their strategic objectives in the face of known Soviet capabilities, a dynamic analysis involving nuclear exchanges may be needed. And if the purpose is to evaluate the record of past arms-control agreements and the implications of current proposals, it will be necessary to count the number of weapons according to the rules which have been defined to verify those agreements.
   Static and Dynamic Measures
   Many would argue that only dynamic analyses of nuclear exchanges should be used in estimating the strategic nuclear balance. These take into account the accuracy, reliability and operational readiness of each side's nuclear forces, their basing modes (and so their survivability), and the functioning of command-and-control systems, as well as the different target sets in the United States and the Soviet Union. But such models of nuclear exchanges present difficulties. They all involve a very large number of assumptions, not only about offensive nuclear forces but also about defences, and their outcomes are particularly sensitive to the assumptions made concerning several key variables: warning times, which side attacks, and whether ICBM are launched under attack.
   Static comparisons of numbers of missiles and bombers, and of missile warheads and bomber weapons, simplify and distort reality. But they do provide a general sense of the size and the characteristics of nuclear force postures. They suggest the character of the offensive capability (for example, silo-based ICBM have quick hardtarget kill capability) and the survivability of the overall force posture (for instance, sea-based systems provide greater survivability). They also enable judgments about survivability to be made in terms of the ratio of one side's missile warheads to the other's land-based missiles.
   It is important, therefore, first to decide the purpose to be served by any estimate of the Soviet-American balance, and whether a dynamic or static analysis is most appropriate to that purpose. War planners and force planners will tend to make their judgments using more elaborate dynamic analyses. Arms-control negotiators and political leaders are likely to need to be able to justify their actions to public opinion in the simpler terms of the numbers of nuclear weapons and warheads that each side possesses.
   What follows is an introduction to how to estimate the Soviet-American strategic nuclear balance, using static measures. An estimate of the Soviet-American strategic nuclear balance for 1986 is presented in a Table at the end of this essay.
   Assumptions
   In this analysis, as in all others, it is important to define critical assumptions explicitly. These tend to fall into three categories: - what nuclear systems will be included and excluded? - which of these systems will be counted? - what number of weapons will be assigned to each nuclear system?
   Systems Included
   In estimating the strategic nuclear balance, the first question is what nuclear systems to define as 'strategic'. Over the past twenty years the United States and the Soviet Union have differed on this point. The Soviet Union has argued that all nuclear systems that can strike the territory of the other side should be included; specifically, it has sought to include US forward-based systems deployed in Europe and Asia, as well as British, French and Chinese nuclear forces. The United States has instead sought to define a class of central strategic systems which serve primarily to deter attacks against the homelands of the two super-powers. In the SALT I and SALT II treaties, the Soviet Union accepted the American position.
   Agreed Statement A to the SALT I Interim Agreement on Strategic Offensive Arms defined a land-based ICBM launcher as having a range 'in excess of the shortest distance between the northeastern border of the continental US and the northwestern border of the continental USSR'. The SALT II Treaty (Article II) went on to define this range as being 'in excess of 5,500 kilometres'.
   SLBM were defined in the SALT II Treaty (Article II, Paragraph 2) as 'launchers of ballistic missiles installed on any nuclear-powered submarine or launchers of modern ballistic missiles on any submarine, regardless of its type'. Both are adequate as definitions for 'strategic' ballistic missiles. In the case of SLBM, there is no doubt about the propulsion system of a class of submarines, and 'modern' is further denned asany missile deployed after 1965 (SALT II Treaty, Agreed Statement to Article II, Paragraph 2).
   Bombers present a more complicated problem, for it is difficult to define their range, which varies with payload, flight profile and re-fuelling. Consequently, the SALT II Treaty (Article II, paragraphs 3-5) provided detailed definitions of the heavy bombers to be covered. Some aircraft were designated by type: for the United States the B-52 and B-1 bombers, andfor the Soviet Union the Tupolev-95 (Bear) and Myasishchev-4 (Bison) bombers. Heavy bombers were also defined as any equipped with air-to-surface ballistic missiles (ASBM) or cruise missiles capable of ranges in excess of 600 kilometres. As a result, the US FB-111A was excluded. After considerable controversy, the Soviet Backfire bomber was also excluded, but was separately limited in a side agreement. In estimates of the strategic nuclear balance, the Reagan Administration will include the Backfire bomber, while the USSR will generally include US forward-based systems in Europe and Asia and omit the Backfire as well as its other nuclear forces threatening Europe and Asia.
   Another issue involves whether to include long-range cruise missiles as 'strategic' systems. In SALT II, air-launched cruise missiles (ALCM) were covered and limited in connection with heavy bombers. In the SALT II Treaty Protocol, sea- and land-based cruise missiles with a range in excess of 600 kilometres were banned for three years. Subsequently, the US and the Soviet Union decided that ground-launched cruise missiles (GLCM) were appropriate for negotiation not with strategic nuclear systems but rather with other intermediate-range nuclear forces. Whether sea-launched cruise missiles (SLCM) should be included in the strategic nuclear balance is still a matter of debate.
   Counting the Systems Included
   In estimating the strategic nuclear balance, assumptions maybe made to reflect the fact that not all the launchers belonging to systems which meet the definition of strategic are operationally ready and on alert at any one time. The alternative, which the SALT treaties adopted, is to include all strategic systems launchers which are theoretically available -except those for testing and training.
   The ICBM on both sides arein a very high state of readiness or alert, being powered by solid fuel or store able liquid fuel. But some will always be undergoing maintenance. In the case of the United States, up to 8 Minuteman II may be reserved for communications.
   For SLBM a considerable difference exists between the forces in the inventory and those on alert (estimates of the figure for alert forces vary widely, depending upon assumptions about the amount of strategic warning that would be received - and acted upon). About 60%of US SSBN are assumed to be at sea at all times, whereas the Soviet Union, because of its single crewing and deployment pattern, may have no more than 15% of its boats at sea in peacetime. Both countries could, however, increase their deployments; submarines in port, changing crews or undergoing minor repairs and routine maintenance, could be deployed within days. Moreover, an increasing fraction of US and Soviet SLBM consists of missiles with sufficient range to reach the territory of the other side from their ports (for the Soviet Union, the SS-N- 8, SS-N-18 and SS-N-20 missiles; for the United States the Trident I or C-4 missile). Submarines on long refit are not operationally ready for sea and could be discounted.
   Some bombers will always be undergoing overhaul, repair and modernization. Given the high costs, bombers are not maintained on airborne alert, but rather depend upon warning to take off from their bases. Bombers can also deliver conventional as well as nuclear weapons and may not be planned for nuclear missions. In fact the United States has changed the mission of some 60 of its B-52 bombers to a conventional role.
   In determining which nuclear systems should be included, the SALT I and SALT II Treaties required that all launchers for 'strategic' systems be counted, except those for testing and training. In the case of missiles, it is important to recognize that the treaties only limited the number of launchers, so that the number of missiles in the inventory of each side will exceed the number of launchers (the extra missiles providing spares and test vehicles). Since the treaties counted bombers as launchers, this rule would bring into the calculation the 200+ old moth-balled bombers in the United States.
   Weapon Numbers Assigned to Included Systems.
   In estimating the overall number of strategic nuclear warheads it will first be necessary to decide how to count warheads on ICBM which have been modified to carry MIRV. Second, a decision will be needed on whether to make assumptions about the operational loadings of individual nuclear systems, or whether to follow the SALT II precedent for missile warheads: to establish counting rules based on maximum numbers established from testing (which can be verified by national technical means). Finally, for bomber weapons, two questions arise: whether to use the ALCM counting rules from SALT II, and how to determine the number of gravity bombs where SALT provides no criteria.
   (a) ICBM Modifications.
   Over their lifetime, ICBM will be modified in various ways. A given booster can be fitted with different post-boost vehicles (PBV) containing different numbers of warheads of different characteristics (weight, yield, accuracy). In the case of the Soviet SS-18, for example, four versions (mods) are believed to have been deployed with from one to ten warheads. This fact is known from the observation of testing, but it is not possible to know with any confidence how many of which mods are deployed.
   The SALT I Treaty did not assign numbers of weapons to individual nuclear systems, since it did not seek to constrain warheads - only launchers. In SALT II, constraints were placed on the number of launchers with MIRV warheads, and so rules were devised for taking modifications of missiles into account. The First Agreed Statement to Paragraph 5 of Article II stated: 'if a launcher has been developed and tested for launching an ICBM or an SLBM with MIRV, all launchers of that type shall be considered to have been developed and tested for launching ICBM or SLBM equipped with MIRV'.
   (b) Operational Loadings.
   The number of weapons actually deployed on individual nuclear systems will vary depending upon the mission and the deployment areas from which they would fire their weapons. For example, the Poseidon missile has been tested with 14 warheads, but its actual loading has to take account of the fact that missile range will vary with the number of warheads (the farther from the Soviet Union a missile is deployed, the fewer warheads it will carry). Depending on the target and the capabilities of Soviet defences, warhead numbers might also be reduced to make room for penetration aids. With bombers the problem is even more complex, since an individual aircraft can deliver ALCM and SRAM warheads as well as gravity bombs. The loading will depend upon whether the bomber will stand-off from or seek to penetrate Soviet territory, and also on whether it will be part of the early stage of an attack - when it will be necessary to destroy air defences as well as specific targets.
   Operational loadings for US nuclear systems are defined as part of the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP) and are highly classified. One could make an estimate of the average loading of ICBM, SLBM and bombers, but this would be arbitrary and would not necessarily represent the actual loadings at any particular time.
   (c) Arms-control Counting Rules for Missile Warheads.
   SALT II did not directly constrain the overall number of strategic nuclear weapons, and thus defined no specific set of counting rules for missile warheads or for bomber weapons. SALT II did, however, impose a maximum permissible number of MIRV warheads on ICBM and SLBM. According to Article IV, Paragraph 10, 'each party undertakes not to flight test or deploy ICBM of a type flight tested as of 1 May, 1979 with a number of re-entry vehicles greater than the maximum number of re-entry vehicles with which an ICBM ofthat type has been flight tested as ofthat date'. For SLBM, Article IV, Paragraph 12, states that 'each party undertakes not to flight test or deploy SLBM with a number of re-entry vehicles greater than the maximum number of re-entry vehicles with which an SLBM of either Party has been flight-tested as of 1 May 1979, that is, fourteen'.
   One way of assigning numbers of nuclear warheads to ballistic missile launchers is to use these SALTII counting rules. These numbers will not in some cases be the actual operational loadings, and for the USSR they will not be the theoretically possible numbers, given the throw weight of Soviet missiles. These counting rules present a problem in the particular case of the US Poseidon C-3 missile, for it was tested with 14 warheads but is assumed to carry on average only 10. For other systems in the US and Soviet arsenals, the number of warheads tested approximates to the actual loadings.
   (d) Bomber Weapons
   For heavy bombers, SALT II only established the number of ALCM to be deployed on cruise missile carriers. Article IV, Paragraph 14, limits the number of ALCM to 28, with the Second Agreed Statement establishing that no bomber of the B-52, B-l, Bear or Bison type will be equipped with more than 20 ALCM. Twenty ALCM is more than the most likely average loading of the B-52G/H and Bear H bombers, but is less than the theoretical maximum that the B-l could carry (though, in its initial deployment, the B-l Downloaded by will be a penetrating bomber carrying gravity bombs and SRAM).
   Assigning weapons to bombers is the most difficult task, because bombers are capable of delivering a mix of weapons which cannot be verified by national technical means. SALT II did not address this issue, since it placed no constraints on gravity bombs or SRAM. Various formulae have been suggested for counting bomber weapons, relying primarily on aircraft gross take-off weight, but they each require somewhat arbitrary assumptions. There is the additional problem that bombers confront air defences which are not constrained by any armscontrol regime. Many, therefore, argue that the counting rules for bomber weapons should take air defences into account, for example by reducing the effectiveness of bomber weapons by 50%.
   Conclusions.
   The current debate over the Soviet-American strategic nuclear balance is focused primarily on the arms-control negotiations. As the current proposals emphasize limits on nuclear weapons, rather than strategic nuclear delivery vehicles, any estimate of the balance will need to define assumptions not only about the systems to be included as 'strategic' but also about the number of weapons to be assigned to each of the systems. To provide background for the arms-control debate, we give overleaf a table providing an estimate of the strategic nuclear balance in 1986. The table is designed primarily for arms-control purposes, and is based on the following assumptions:
   - the nuclear systems defined as 'strategic' are those so defined in SALT I and SALT II, with the FB-111A and Backfire bombers excluded, as well as SLCM and US forward-based systems. (The conflicting intelligence estimates of the Backfires unrefuelled range that originally served as a basis for its inclusion as a strategic system appear to have been resolved in favour of a shorter range, which would suggest exclusion.)
   - all launchers for strategic nuclear systems are included except those for testing and training and the 200+ old mothballed US heavy bombers. No discount is made for operational readiness or for systems converted to conventional missions.
   - no attempt has been made to define the actual operational loadings of the individual systems.
   - SALT II counting rules are used for ballistic missile warheads and ALCM.
   - for B-1 bombers and those B-52G/H not des ignated as ALCM carriers, 12 bombs are assumed, with no discount for air defences.See Table 1 (p. 222) for the various possible loadings.

Оценка стратегического ядерного баланса

   Дебаты о природе советского американского стратегического ядерного баланса сбивают с толку и расстраивают тех, кто хочет простого сравнения американских и советских ядерных сил. Частично проблема заключается в том, что существуют различные причины для оценки баланса, и лежащие в его основе предположения и методы расчета будут варьироваться в зависимости от цели, которой они будут служить.
   Например, статическая совокупность стратегических ядерных боеголовок может быть достаточной для установления того, существует ли существенная эквивалентность между сверхдержавами или же одна из сторон обладает военным превосходством. Но для того, чтобы оценить вероятность ядерной войны (с точки зрения стимулов для любой из сторон нанести первый удар в кризисе) или определить, насколько успешными могут быть ядерные силы США в выполнении своих стратегических задач перед лицом известных советских возможностей, может потребоваться динамический анализ, включающий ядерные обмены. И если цель состоит в том, чтобы оценить историю прошлых соглашений о контроле над вооружениями и последствия нынешних предложений, то необходимо будет подсчитать количество вооружений в соответствии с правилами, которые были определены для проверки этих соглашений.
   Статические и динамические показатели.
   Многие утверждают, что при оценке стратегического ядерного баланса следует использовать только динамический анализ ядерных обменов. Они учитывают точность, надежность и боеготовность ядерных сил каждой стороны, режимы их базирования (а значит, и их живучесть), функционирование систем командования и управления, а также различные целевые установки в Соединенных Штатах и Советском Союзе. Но такие модели ядерных обменов представляют трудности. Все они включают в себя очень большое число предположений не только о наступательных ядерных силах, но и об обороне, и их результаты особенно чувствительны к предположениям, сделанным в отношении нескольких ключевых переменных: время предупреждения, какие стороны атакуют и запускаются ли МБР под атакой.
   Статические сравнения количества ракет и бомбардировщиков, ракетных боеголовок и бомбардировочного оружия упрощают и искажают реальность. Но они дают общее представление о размерах и характеристиках ядерных сил. Они предполагают характер наступательного потенциала (например, МБР на базе шахт обладают способностью быстро и жестко убивать) и живучесть (например, системы морского базирования обеспечивают большую живучесть). Они также позволяют судить о живучести с точки зрения соотношения боеголовок ракет одной стороны и ракет наземного базирования другой стороны.
   Поэтому важно прежде всего решить, какой цели должна служить любая оценка советско-американского баланса и является ли динамический или статический анализ наиболее подходящим для этой цели. Военные планировщики и планировщики сил будут склонны делать свои суждения, используя более сложный динамический анализ. Участники переговоров по контролю над вооружениями и политические лидеры, вероятно, должны быть в состоянии оправдать свои действия перед общественным мнением в более простых терминах количества ядерного оружия и боеголовок, которыми обладает каждая сторона.
   Далее следует введение в то, как оценить советско-американский стратегический ядерный баланс, используя статические показатели. Оценка советско-американского стратегического ядерного баланса за 1986 год представлена в таблице в конце настоящего очерка.
   Предубеждения
   В этом анализе, как и во всех других, важно четко определить критические предположения. Они, как правило, делятся на три категории: - Какие ядерные системы будут включены и исключены? - какая из этих систем будет учитываться? - какое количество оружия будет присвоено каждой ядерной системе?
   Системы включены
   При оценке стратегического ядерного баланса первый вопрос заключается в том, какие ядерные системы следует определить как "стратегические". За последние двадцать лет Соединенные Штаты и Советский Союз расходились в этом вопросе. Советский Союз утверждал, что все ядерные системы, которые могут нанести удар по территории другой стороны, должны быть включены; в частности, он стремился включить системы передового базирования США, развернутые в Европе и Азии, а также британские, французские и китайские ядерные силы. Вместо этого Соединенные Штаты стремятся определить класс центральных стратегических систем, которые служат главным образом для сдерживания нападений на родину двух сверхдержав. В договорах по ОСВ I и ОСВ II Советский Союз принял американскую позицию.
   В согласованном заявлении, а к временному соглашению по стратегическим наступательным вооружениям ОСВ I было определено, что наземная пусковая установка МБР имеет дальность, "превышающую кратчайшее расстояние между северо-восточной границей континентальной части США и северо-западной границей континентальной части СССР". Далее в договоре по ОСВ II (статья II) этот диапазон определяется как "превышающий 5500 километров".
   БРПЛ были определены в договоре ОСВ II (статья II, пункт 2) как "пусковые установки баллистических ракет, установленные на любой атомной подводной лодке или пусковые установки современных баллистических ракет на любой подводной лодке, независимо от ее типа". Оба адекватные определения для стратегических баллистических ракет. В случае БРПЛ нет никаких сомнений в двигательной установке подводных лодок класса, и "современная" далее определяется как ракета, развернутая после 1965 года (договор ОСВ II, согласованное заявление к статье II, пункт 2).
   Бомбардировщики представляют собой более сложную проблему, поскольку трудно определить их дальность, которая варьируется в зависимости от полезной нагрузки, профиля полета и дозаправки. Соответственно, в договоре по ОСВ II (статья II, пункты 3-5) содержатся подробные определения тяжелых бомбардировщиков, которые должны быть охвачены. Некоторые самолеты были обозначены по типу: для США бомбардировщики В-52 и B-1, а для Советского Союза бомбардировщики Ту-95 и М-4. Тяжелые бомбардировщики были также определены как любые, оснащенные баллистическими ракетами класса "воздух-поверхность" (БРВБ) или крылатыми ракетами дальностью свыше 600 километров. В результате был исключен американский FB-111A. После значительных споров советский бомбардировщик Backfire был также исключен, но был отдельно ограничен в другом соглашении. По оценкам стратегического ядерного баланса, администрация Рейгана будет включать бомбардировщик Backfire, в то время как СССР, как правило, будет включать в себя системы передового базирования США в Европе и Азии и опускать Backfire, а также другие свои ядерные силы, угрожающие Европе и Азии.
   Другой вопрос заключается в том, следует ли включать крылатые ракеты большой дальности в качестве "стратегических" систем. В ОСВ II крылатые ракеты воздушного базирования (ALCM) были прикрыты и ограничены в связи с тяжелыми бомбардировщиками. В протоколе к Договору ОСВ-II крылатые ракеты морского и наземного базирования дальностью свыше 600 километров запрещены на три года. Впоследствии США и Советский Союз решили, что крылатые ракеты наземного базирования (КРНБ) подходят для переговоров не со стратегическими ядерными системами, а с другими ядерными силами средней дальности. Вопрос о том, следует ли включать крылатые ракеты морского базирования в стратегический ядерный баланс, по-прежнему является предметом обсуждения.
   Подсчет включенных систем
   При оценке стратегического ядерного баланса могут быть сделаны предположения, отражающие тот факт, что не все пусковые установки, принадлежащие системам, отвечающим определению стратегических, в любой момент времени находятся в оперативной готовности и в состоянии боевой готовности. Альтернативой, которую приняли договоры по ОСВ, является включение всех теоретически доступных пусковых установок стратегических систем, за исключением тех, которые предназначены для испытаний и обучения.
   МБР с обеих сторон находятся в очень высоком состоянии готовности, с твердым топливом или долгохранящимся жидким топливом. Но некоторые всегда будут проходить техническое обслуживание. В случае Соединенных Штатов для связи может быть зарезервировано до 8 Minuteman II.
   Для БРПЛ существует значительная разница между силами, находящимися и не находящимися в состоянии боевой готовности, (оценки численности сил, находящихся в состоянии боевой готовности, широко варьируются в зависимости от предположений относительно объема стратегического предупреждения, которое будет получено и по которому будут приняты меры). Предполагается, что около 60% американских ПЛАРБ постоянно находятся в море, в то время как Советский Союз из-за своей единой схемы экипажей и развертывания может иметь не более 15% своих лодок в море в мирное время. Однако обе страны могут увеличить свое присутствие; подводные лодки в порту, сменяющие экипажи или проходящие мелкий ремонт и текущий ремонт, могут быть развернуты в течение нескольких дней. Кроме того, все большая доля американских и советских БРПЛ состоит из ракет с достаточной дальностью, чтобы достичь территории другой стороны из их портов (для Советского Союза-ракеты SS-N-8, SS-N-18 и SS-N-20; для Соединенных Штатов-ракеты Trident I или C-4). Подводные лодки на длительном переоборудовании не готовы к выходу в море и могут быть дисконтированы.
   Некоторые бомбардировщики всегда будут проходить капитальный ремонт, ремонт и модернизацию. Учитывая высокие затраты, бомбардировщики не находятся в состоянии боевой готовности, а скорее зависят от предупреждения о взлете со своих баз. Бомбардировщики могут также доставлять как обычное, так и ядерное оружие и могут не планироваться для ядерных миссий. На самом деле Соединенные Штаты изменили миссию примерно 60 своих бомбардировщиков B-52 на обычную роль.
   При определении того, какие ядерные системы должны быть включены, договоры по ОСВ I и ОСВ II требуют, чтобы все пусковые установки для "стратегических" систем учитывались, за исключением пусковых установок для испытаний и обучения. Что касается ракет, то важно признать, что договоры ограничивают лишь число пусковых установок, с тем чтобы число ракет в инвентарном запасе каждой стороны превышало число пусковых установок (дополнительные ракеты, обеспечивающие запасные части и испытательные транспортные средства). Поскольку в договорах бомбардировщики рассматривались в качестве пусковых установок, это правило включало в расчет более 200 старых бомбардировщиков в Соединенных Штатах.
   Количество оружия включенных систем.
   При оценке общего количества стратегических ядерных боеголовок сначала необходимо будет решить, как считать боеголовки на МБР, которые были MIRV. Во-вторых, необходимо будет принять решение о том, делать ли предположения относительно эксплуатационных нагрузок отдельных ядерных систем или следовать прецеденту ОСВ II для ракетных боеголовок: установить правила подсчета на основе максимальных чисел, установленных в результате испытаний (которые могут быть проверены национальными техническими средствами). Наконец, для бомбардировочного оружия возникают два вопроса: следует ли использовать правила подсчета КРВБ из ОСВ II и как определить количество свободнопадающих бомб, где ОСВ не дает критериев.
   (а) Модификации МБР.
   В течение жизни МБР будут модифицироваться различными способами. Данная ракета-носитель может быть оснащена различными средствами после разгона (PBV), содержащими различное количество боеголовок с различными характеристиками (масса, мощность, точность). В случае советских SS -18, например, четыре версии (модификации), как полагают, были развернуты с от одной до десяти боеголовок. Этот факт известен из наблюдения за испытаниями, но невозможно с уверенностью знать, сколько модификаций развернуто.
   Договор ОСВ-1 не присваивает числа боеголовок отдельным ядерным системам, поскольку он не направлен на ограничение боеголовок - только пусковых установок. В ОСВ II были установлены ограничения на количество пусковых установок с боеголовками MIRV, и поэтому были разработаны правила учета модификаций ракет. В первом согласованном заявлении к пункту 5 статьи II говорится: "если была разработана и испытана пусковая установка для запуска МБР или БРПЛ с MIRV, то все пусковые установки этого типа считаются разработанными и испытанными для запуска МБР или БРПЛ, оснащенных MIRV".
   (b) Эксплуатационные загрузки.
   Количество оружия, фактически развернутого на отдельных ядерных системах, будет варьироваться в зависимости от миссии и районов развертывания, из которых они будут стрелять своим оружием. Например, ракета Poseidon была испытана с 14 боеголовками, но ее фактическая загрузка должна учитывать тот факт, что дальность действия ракеты будет меняться в зависимости от количества боеголовок (чем дальше от Советского Союза ракета развернута, тем меньше боеголовок она будет нести). В зависимости от цели и возможностей советской обороны количество боеголовок также может быть сокращено, чтобы освободить место для средств проникновения. С бомбардировщиками проблема еще сложнее, так как отдельные самолеты могут доставлять боеголовки ALCM и SRAM, а также свободнопадающие бомбы. Загрузка будет зависеть от того, будет ли бомбардировщик действовать с расстояния или стремиться проникнуть на советскую территорию, а также от того, будет ли он частью ранней стадии атаки - когда необходимо будет уничтожить ПВО, а также конкретные цели.
   Эксплуатационные загрузки для ядерных систем США определены как часть единого комплексного оперативного плана (SIOP) и являются строго засекреченными. Можно было бы произвести оценку средней загрузки МБР, БРПЛ и бомбардировщиков, но это было бы произвольным и необязательно представляло бы фактические нагрузки в любой конкретный момент времени.
   (c) Правила учета ракетных боеголовок в рамках контроля над вооружениями.
   ОСВ II напрямую не ограничивала общее количество стратегических ядерных вооружений и, таким образом, не определяла никакого конкретного набора правил подсчета ракетных боеголовок или бомбардировочного оружия. Однако ОСВ II не допускают максимальное допустимое количество боеголовок в РГЧ на МБР и БРПЛ. В соответствии с пунктом 10 статьи IV "каждая сторона обязуется не проводить летные испытания или не развертывать МБР типа, испытанного в полете, по состоянию на 1 мая 1979 года, с числом средств, возвращающихся в атмосферу, превышающим максимальное число средств, с которыми МБР этого типа была испытана в полете на указанную дату". Что касается БРПЛ, то в пункте 12 статьи IV говорится, что "каждая сторона обязуется не проводить летных испытаний или развертывания БРПЛ с числом средств, возвращающихся в атмосферу, превышающим максимальное число средств, возвращающихся в атмосферу, с которыми БРПЛ любой из сторон была испытана в полете по состоянию на 1 мая 1979 года".
   Одним из способов присвоения количества ядерных боеголовок пусковым установкам баллистических ракет является использование этих правил подсчета ОСВ II. Эти цифры в некоторых случаях не будут являться фактическими оперативными нагрузками, а для СССР они не будут теоретически возможными числами, учитывая забрасываемый вес советских ракет. Эти правила подсчета представляют проблему в частном случае американской ракеты Poseidon C-3, поскольку она была испытана с 14 боеголовками, но, как предполагается, несет в среднем только 10. Для других систем в арсеналах США и СССР количество испытанных боеголовок приближается к фактическим нагрузкам.
   (д) Бомбардировочное вооружение
   Для тяжелых бомбардировщиков ОСВ II установила только количество КРВБ, которые будут развернуты на воздушных ракетоносцах. Пункт 14 статьи IV ограничивает число КРВБ 28, а второе согласованное заявление устанавливает, что ни один бомбардировщик типа В-52, B-1, Bear или Bison не будет оснащен более чем 20 КРВБ. Двадцать КРВБ - это больше, чем наиболее вероятная средняя загрузка бомбардировщиков B-52G/H и Bear H, но меньше теоретического максимума, который мог нести B-1 (хотя, в своем первоначальном развертывании, B-1 загруженный будет проникающим бомбардировщиком, несущим свободнопадающие бомбы и SRAM).
   Назначение оружия бомбардировщикам является наиболее сложной задачей, поскольку бомбардировщики способны доставлять смесь вооружений, которые не могут быть проверены национальными техническими средствами. ОСВ II не рассматривала этот вопрос, поскольку она не накладывала никаких ограничений на свободнопадающие бомбы или SRAM. Были предложены различные формулы для подсчета оружия бомбардировщиков, основанные главным образом на общем взлетном весе самолета, но каждая из них требует несколько произвольных предположений. Существует дополнительная проблема, что бомбардировщики сталкиваются с ПВО, которые не ограничены каким-либо режимом контроля над вооружениями. Поэтому многие утверждают, что правила подсчета для бомбардировочного оружия должны учитывать средства ПВО, например, путем снижения эффективности бомбардировочного оружия на 50%.
   Выводы.
   Нынешние дебаты о советско-американском стратегическом ядерном балансе сосредоточены прежде всего на переговорах по контролю над вооружениями. Поскольку в нынешних предложениях подчеркиваются ограничения на ядерное оружие, а не на стратегические средства доставки, любая оценка баланса должна будет определять предположения не только о системах, которые должны быть включены в качестве "стратегических", но и о количестве оружия, которое должно быть присвоено каждой из систем. В качестве основы для обсуждения вопросов контроля над вооружениями мы приводим таблицу, содержащую оценку стратегического ядерного баланса в 1986 году. Таблица предназначена главным образом для целей контроля над вооружениями и основана на следующих предположениях:
   - ядерные системы, определенные как "стратегические", - это те, которые определены в ОСВ I и ОСВ II, за исключением бомбардировщиков FB-111A и Backfire, а также КРМБ и американских систем передового базирования. (Противоречивые оценки разведывательных данных о Невосполненной дальности поражения, которые первоначально служили основой для ее включения в качестве стратегической системы, как представляется, были решены в пользу меньшей дальности, что предполагает исключение.)
   - все пусковые установки для стратегических ядерных систем включены, за исключением тех, для испытаний и обучения и 200+ старых законсервированных тяжелых бомбардировщиков США. Не делается никаких скидок на оперативную готовность или на системы, преобразованные в обычные миссии.
   - не было предпринято попыток определить фактические эксплуатационные нагрузки отдельных систем.
   - Правила подсчета ОСВ II используются для боеголовок баллистических ракет и КРВБ.
   - для бомбардировщиков B-1 и тех B-52G/H, которые не были использованы в качестве носителей ALCM, предполагается 12 бомб без скидки на ПВО.См. таблицу 1 (стр. 222) для различных возможных нагрузок.

The East-West Conventional Balance in Europe

   Data:
   The table on pp. 226-7 is designed to show highly aggregated numerical comparisons between the major elements in the conventional composition of the forces of NATO and the Warsaw Pact in Europe. The table is a summary of the data listed in the individual country entries of the two Pacts, qualified by what is known of peacetime deployment, planned reinforcement and mobilization. The statistics are grouped for each Bloc under the (somewhat arbitrary) geographic headings 'North' and 'South'; for NATO, the US, British and Canadian Forces shown are all actually in Europe or available for immediate reinforcement. The total of entries in both regions is given. The Warsaw Pact is grouped similarly: non-Soviet forces in the north and south and the Soviet Union's forces also in those regions are included, as they are in the overall totals.
   Geographical:
   The regions are denned as follows: NATO, North: Norway, Denmark, West Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Belgium; forces deployed from Britain, Canada, US (Atlantic deployments) and France (Army, Navy, Air, deployed Atlantic).
   Warsaw Pact, North: East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia; Soviet forces in those countries and in the Leningrad, Baltic, Belorussian and Carpathian MDS.
   NATO, South: Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France (Navy deployed Mediterranean), US Sixth Fleet, and forces deployed in Southern Europe.
   Warsaw Pact, South: Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania and Soviet forces in Hungary and the Odessa, Kiev, North Caucasus and Trans Caucasus MDS.
   Manpower
   The total number of men in uniform for all countries in both Pacts is given, followed by the total of all Reserve forces. The totals then given for the ground forces and their reserves are a proportion of - not in addition to - these totals. The strengths shown for the ground forces actually in the regions described must be used with caution. For the European NATO and Warsaw Pact countries it includes all non-combat HQ, logistic and base personnel. The Soviet totals are estimated. The British, Canadian and French figures for NATO in Europe and the Soviet figures in North and South Europe (shown in brackets), are forces specifically stationed in the region in peacetime. Spanish forces are shown separately under NATO South. Spain, like France, is not a part of the NATO integrated military structure; unlike France (some of whose forces are deployed in West Germany), no Spanish troops are deployed outside Spanish territory (which includes Ceuta and Melilla). Paramilitary forces, border guards and such security elements as the KGB, which also has a wartime role, are not included.
   Organization:
   The smallest self-contained independent tactical formation with its own logistic support is the division. In all cases 'Tank' includes tank and armoured divisions; 'Mech' includes motorized and motor rifle as well as mechanized divisions (both are 'heavy' divisions in US terms). 'Other' includes infantry, airborne, air-portable, air assault, mountain, amphibious and marine and 'light' infantry (in US terms 'light divisions'). An artificial equivalent to a division is taken to be three brigades (some nine battalions of armour, infantry, or a mix of them). lt must be remembered that this grouping would often lack essential support such as engineer, artillery and logistic elements. These appear in the 'other' divisional category.
   Deployment:
   The NATO divisions (or equivalents) listed as 'deployed in Europe' are those actually at or near full combat readiness in the forces of the Continental states adjacent to the NATO fronts: Britain's BAOR, the Canadian brigade group, the French corps, and the US Army in Europe. For the Warsaw Pact the total includes all the Soviet and East European Pact formations at Category 1 level (i.e. fully manned in peacetime) in Europe and in the relevant MDs in the Soviet Union. 'Divisions available for reinforcement' includes those cadre and reserve formations in the same regions. Mobilization times obviously vary; we have made no attempt to estimate the actual state of readiness of these formations or the time required to deploy them. Details of the Soviet formation deployments are contained in the USSR country entry.
   Equipment:
   Totals are based on operational equipment inventories in the national entries. They include equipment available to the Reserves where such totals-are known. The totals do not include equipment shown as 'in store' because of the incompleteness of such data. For those countries outside the European theatre, stocks refer only to those holdings known, or estimated to be in Europe. Naval strengths for NATO are those vessels presumed normally to be in the Atlantic, Channel, North Sea and Mediterranean. The NATO South entry includes the US Sixth Fleet; the 'US' column lists the Atlantic-based vessels only. For the Warsaw Pact, we include the Soviet Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets and the non-Soviet navies in the Baltic and Black Seas. The Soviet Mediterranean Squadron comprises submarines from the Northern Fleet and surface vessels detached from the Black Sea Fleet. Their numbers are reflected in the 'South' totals of the USSR. Classification of ships and naval aircraft reflects the usage in the country entries. The increasing use of multi-role aircraft complicates listings, but the national air force categorization by primary mission, and deployments, are also taken from the country entries. Possible reinforcements from the Continental US are not included; Soviet estimates show aircraft deployed in the countries and MDs cited above. Bomber figures include medium-range aircraft.
   Comparisons
   Ratios have been calculated between the respective totals of the two Blocs. What are not shown in the numerical presentation are such factors as geography, quality of training, doctrine, political and military leadership, morale and technological development. Such considerations must in any case be set within the wider political and strategic contexts, including the nuclear balance, world-wide force deployments (including naval and air forces), logistics and mobilization and reinforcement policies.
   Obviously, the Warsaw Pact enjoys the primary and important advantage of having a generally common range of weapons and of tactical doctrines. Differing rates of equipment modernization have reduced some of this advantage, but not significantly. NATO suffers from doctrines by no means identical and from a great diversity of everything from weapon systems to support equipment, with consequent duplication of supply systems and major difficulties of inadequate interoperability. Certain NATO countries, too, still lack sufficient spares and ammunition, although determined efforts are being made to remedy this situation. 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 Pact logistic system, using a mix of rail, road and pipeline, has been greatly improved, and, because of the more widespread and organized system of para-military control, it may be judged somewhat less vulnerable to sabotage and interception than comparable systems in NATO territories. The Warsaw Pact has long had an advantage in numbers of surface-to-surface missiles to deliver high-explosive, nuclear and chemical weapons against targets deep in NATO rear areas.
   These could not be intercepted; replacement systems entering service are certainly more accurate and may be more reliable. The Pact inventory of modern fighter-bombers (many nuclear-capable) continues to grow, providing an increasingly significant and more flexible long range air threat to NATO. The Pact's defence against air attack combines a large number of interceptors with extensive deployment of surface-to-air missiles and artillery. Electronic counter-measures (ECM) could probably go some way to neutralize these defences, but NATO air forces nevertheless face an increasingly formidable task in providing close air support for NATO ground forces and longer-range interdiction. This could be critical, given the fact that NATO continues to depend on its air forces to counter Warsaw Pact superiority in ground force numbers. The fact that NATO still does not have a standard Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) system further impairs its air defence effectiveness. It enjoys a (narrowing) margin of overall electronic superiority, and may enjoy greater flexibility in command and control in combat conditions. The Soviet Union has a very large number of modern airfields. NATO has too few airfields and, because of the improving but still poor interoperability of aircraft types, lacks operational flexibility, although considerable improvements are being made in the provision of hardened aircraft shelters and pre-stocking of airfields for rapid reinforcement aircraft from outside the theatre.
   Summary
   Though reorganizations and equipment deliveries have changed individual ratios, there has been no significant change in the numerical balance of conventional forces in Europe over the past year. We do show Spanish forces but do not include them in NATO totals. Though Spain's political position with regard to NATO has been clarified, its forces' roles have yet to be agreed. Considerations of geography, organization, doctrine and standards of training, not normally considered, cannot be overlooked in this instance. lt will be some years before the bulk of Spain's armed forces will be considered truly combat capable.
   Gaps between technology in conventional equipment may be continuing to narrow. Because of the presence in the equation of so many unknown and unknowable factors, it would be most unwise to predict the outcome of a war in Europe. NATO would not necessarily be defeated, nor would the Warsaw Pact necessarily see its numerical advantages as being sufficient to risk an attack. It may depend critically upon warning time and how this is used. One can conclude that there is still sufficient danger in the trend to require remedies by the Western Alliance, particularly as manpower shortages become more of a problem for many countries towards 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 for the time being, due mainly to budgetary constraints. The ratio of forces, while no worse, is certainly no better than before.
   Our conclusion remains that the conventional military 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 perhaps to allow him to believe that he might achieve limited tactical success 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, remain incalculable.
  

Неядерный баланс Восток-Запад в Европе

   Данные:
   Таблица на стр. 226-7 предназначена для того, чтобы показать высоко агрегированные численные сравнения между основными элементами состава обычных сил НАТО и Варшавского договора в Европе. Таблица представляет собой резюме данных, перечисленных в отдельных страновых позициях двух пактов, с учетом того, что известно о развертывании в мирное время, планируемом укреплении и мобилизации. Статистика сгруппирована по каждому блоку под (несколько произвольными) географическими заголовками "Север" и "Юг"; для НАТО показанные силы США, Великобритании и Канады, которые фактически находятся в Европе или доступны для немедленного подкрепления. Приводится общее количество записей в обоих регионах. Варшавский пакт сгруппирован аналогичным образом: в него включены силы, не относящиеся к Советскому Союзу, на севере и юге, а также силы Советского Союза в этих регионах, поскольку они входят в общие итоги.
   География:
   Регионы определяются следующим образом: НАТО, Север: Норвегия, Дания, Западная Германия, Люксембург, Нидерланды и Бельгия; силы, развернутые из Великобритании, Канады, США (атлантическое развертывание) и Франции (армия, флот, воздух, атлантическое развертывание).
   Варшавский договор, Север: Восточная Германия, Польша, Чехословакия; советские войска в этих странах и в Ленинградской, Балтийской, белорусской и Карпатской МДС.
   НАТО, Юг: Турция, Греция, Италия, Испания, Португалия, Франция (флот развернут в Средиземном море), Шестой флот США и силы, развернутые в Южной Европе.
   Варшавский договор, Юг: Венгрия, Болгария и Румыния и советские войска в Венгрии и Одессе, Киеве, Северном Кавказе и Закавказье.
   Личный состав
   Приведено общее число людей в форме для всех стран в обоих пактах, за которым следует общее число всех резервных сил. Итоговые данные по Сухопутным войскам и их резервам составляют часть этих итогов, а не дополнение к ним. Необходимо с осторожностью использовать силы стороны сухопутных войск, фактически действующих в описанных районах. Для стран европейского НАТО и Варшавского договора она включает в себя все небоевые штабной, материально-технический и базовый персонал. Подсчитаны советские итоги. Британские, канадские и французские данные по НАТО в Европе и советские данные по Северной и Южной Европе (указаны в скобках) являются силами, специально размещенными в регионе в мирное время. Испанские войска отображаются отдельно под НАТО на юге. Испания, как и Франция, не является частью интегрированной военной структуры НАТО; в отличие от Франции (часть сил которой дислоцирована в Западной Германии), испанские войска не дислоцируются за пределами испанской территории (включая Сеуту и Мелилью). Военизированные формирования, пограничники и такие элементы безопасности, как КГБ, который также играет роль военного времени, не включены.
   Организация:
   Наименьшим автономным самостоятельным тактическим формированием с собственной материально-технической поддержкой является дивизия. Во всех случаях "Tank" включает танковые и бронетанковые дивизии; "Mech"включает моторизованные и мотострелковые, а также механизированные дивизии (обе - "тяжелые" дивизии американским терминам). "Other" включает в себя пехоту, воздушно-десантные, воздушно-штурмовые, горные, морской пехоты и 'легкие' пехотные (по американским терминам легкие дивизии). Искусственным эквивалентом дивизии считаются три бригады (около девяти батальонов бронетехники, пехоты или их смеси). Следует помнить, что этой группировке часто не хватает необходимой поддержки, такой как инженерные, артиллерийские и материально-технические элементы. Они относятся к категории " other ".
   Развертывание:
   Дивизии НАТО (или их эквиваленты), перечисленные как "развернутые в Европе", фактически находятся в полной или почти полной боевой готовности в силах континентальных государств, прилегающих к фронтам НАТО: британской BAOR, канадской бригадной группы, французского корпуса и армии США в Европе. Что касается Варшавского договора, то в него входят все советские и восточноевропейские формирования на уровне категории 1 (т. е. полностью укомплектованные в мирное время) в Европе и в соответствующих ВО в Советском Союзе. "Дивизии, доступные для подкрепления", включают эти кадровые и резервные формирования в тех же регионах. Очевидно, что сроки мобилизации различаются; мы не пытались оценить фактическое состояние готовности этих формирований или время, необходимое для их развертывания. Детали развертывания Советского формирования содержатся на странице СССР.
   Вооружение:
   Итоговые данные основаны на инвентаризации эксплуатационного вооружения в национальных позициях. Они включают в себя вооружение, имеющееся в резерве, где известны такие итоги. Итоговые данные не включают вооружение, показанное как "в запасе" из-за неполноты таких данных. Для стран за пределами европейского театра действий акции относятся только к тем холдингам, которые известны или предположительно находятся в Европе. Военно-морские силы НАТО - это те суда, которые, как предполагается, обычно находятся в Атлантике, Ла-Манше, Северном море и Средиземном море. НАТО на Юге включает в себя Шестой флот США; в колонке "США" перечислены только суда Атлантического базирования. К Варшавскому договору мы относим Советский Северный, Балтийский и Черноморский флоты, а также несоюзные флоты в Балтийском и Черном морях. Советская Средиземноморская эскадра состоит из подводных лодок Северного флота и надводных кораблей Черноморского флота. Их численность отражена в "южных" итогах СССР. Классификация судов и военно-морской авиации отражает использование в стране записей. Более широкое использование многоцелевых самолетов затрудняет включение в списки, однако классификация национальных Военно-воздушных сил по основным миссиям и развертываниям также берется из страновых позиций. Возможные подкрепления из континентальных США не включены; советские оценки показывают, что самолеты развернуты в странах и ВО, упомянутых выше. Бомбардировщики включают самолеты средней дальности.
   Сравнения
   Были рассчитаны соотношения между соответствующими общими показателями двух блоков. В численном выражении не показаны такие факторы, как география, качество подготовки, доктрина, политическое и военное руководство, моральный дух и технологическое развитие. Такие соображения в любом случае должны учитываться в более широком политическом и стратегическом контексте, включая ядерный баланс, развертывание сил во всем мире (включая военно-морские и военно-воздушные силы), материально-техническое обеспечение и политику мобилизации и укрепления.
   Очевидно, что Варшавский пакт обладает главным и важным преимуществом, заключающимся в наличии общего арсенала оружия и тактических доктрин. Различные темпы модернизации оборудования уменьшили часть этого преимущества, но не значительно. НАТО страдает от доктрин, отнюдь не идентичных друг другу, и от огромного разнообразия всего - от систем вооружения до вспомогательного оборудования, - что приводит к дублированию систем снабжения и серьезным трудностям, связанным с неадекватной эксплуатационной совместимостью. Некоторые страны НАТО также по-прежнему не имеют достаточного количества запасных частей и боеприпасов, хотя предпринимаются решительные усилия по исправлению этой ситуации. Некоторые страны пакта могут также страдать от нехватки, но тот факт, что их оборудование в целом стандартизировано, позволит им быстрее пополнять запасы. Логистическая система пакта, использующая сочетание железнодорожного, автомобильного и трубопроводного транспорта, была значительно усовершенствована, и в силу более широкой и организованной системы полувоенного контроля ее можно считать несколько менее уязвимой для саботажа и перехвата, чем аналогичные системы на территориях НАТО. Варшавский пакт уже давно имеет преимущество в количестве ракет класса "земля-земля" для доставки фугасного, ядерного и химического оружия против целей в тылу НАТО.
   Они не могут быть перехвачены; системы, поступающие в эксплуатацию, безусловно, более точны и могут быть более надежными. Арсенал современных истребителей-бомбардировщиков (многие из которых обладают ядерным потенциалом) продолжает расти, обеспечивая НАТО все более значительную и гибкую угрозу с воздуха на большие расстояния. Защита пакта от воздушного нападения сочетает в себе большое число перехватчиков с широким развертыванием ракет класса "земля-воздух" и артиллерии. Электронные контрмеры (РЭБ), вероятно, могли бы каким-то образом нейтрализовать эти оборонительные сооружения, но, тем не менее, перед военно-воздушными силами НАТО стоит все более трудная задача по обеспечению непосредственной воздушной поддержки сухопутных сил НАТО и их перехвата на большие расстояния. Это может иметь решающее значение, учитывая тот факт, что НАТО по-прежнему зависит от своих военно-воздушных сил, чтобы противостоять превосходству Варшавского договора в численности наземных сил. Тот факт, что НАТО по-прежнему не имеет стандартной системы идентификации, дружественной или враждебной (IFF), еще больше снижает эффективность ее противовоздушной обороны. Оно обладает (сужающимся) запасом общего электронного превосходства и может обладать большей гибкостью в командовании и управлении в боевых условиях. Советский Союз имеет очень большое количество современных аэродромов. У НАТО слишком мало аэродромов, и из-за улучшающейся, но все еще плохой эксплуатационной совместимости типов воздушных судов ей не хватает оперативной гибкости, хотя в настоящее время вносятся значительные улучшения в обеспечение укрепленных укрытий для самолетов и предварительное размещение аэродромов для быстрого усиления самолетами за пределами театра действий.
   Резюме
   Хотя реорганизация и поставки оборудования изменили индивидуальные соотношения, за последний год не произошло никаких существенных изменений в численном балансе обычных вооруженных сил в Европе. Мы показываем испанские силы, но не включаем их в общую сумму НАТО. Хотя политическая позиция Испании в отношении НАТО была уточнена, роль ее сил еще предстоит согласовать. В данном случае нельзя упускать из виду соображения географии, организации, доктрины и стандартов подготовки, которые обычно не учитываются. пройдет несколько лет, прежде чем основная часть вооруженных сил Испании будет считаться действительно боеспособной.
   Разрыв между технологиями в области обычного вооружения, возможно, продолжает сокращаться. Из-за наличия в уравнении так много неизвестных и непознаваемых факторов, было бы неразумно предсказывать исход войны в Европе. НАТО не обязательно потерпит поражение, и Варшавский пакт не обязательно увидит свое численное преимущество достаточными, чтобы рискнуть атакой. Это может критически зависеть от времени предупреждения и как это используется. Можно сделать вывод о том, что по-прежнему существует достаточная опасность того, что тенденция требовать от западного альянса принятия мер по исправлению положения, особенно с учетом того, что нехватка рабочей силы становится все более серьезной проблемой для многих стран к концу 80-х годов. Можно также сделать вывод о том, что любое значительное повышение ядерного порога за счет приобретения НАТО заметно большего обычного потенциала, как представляется, в настоящее время недоступно, главным образом из-за бюджетных ограничений. Соотношение сил, хотя и не хуже, конечно, не лучше, чем раньше.
   Мы по-прежнему считаем, что обычный военный баланс по-прежнему таков, что общая военная агрессия является весьма рискованным предприятием для обеих сторон. Хотя обладание инициативой в войне всегда позволит агрессору достичь местного преимущества в численности (достаточного, возможно, для того, чтобы он мог поверить, что он может достичь ограниченного тактического успеха в некоторых областях), все же, по-видимому, будет недостаточно общей силы с обеих сторон, чтобы гарантировать победу. Последствия для нападающего по-прежнему были бы совершенно непредсказуемыми, а риски, особенно ядерной эскалации, остаются неисчислимыми.

Government Expenditure: Selected Items 1973-83

  
   These charts are designed to show the relationship between total government revenue and total government expenditure, with specific emphasis on the proportions of expenditure devoted to (1) Health, Education, and Social Security (H/E/SS), (2) defence, and (3) government interest payments. To make a selective comparison, we have charted the data for six NATO countries (three nuclear and three major conventional powers) and two non-NATO states (one highly developed, the other a 'newly industrializing country'). All data has been deflated to 1980 prices in local currencies.
   The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has developed a standard budget and revenue reporting method, and the data for our charts comes from The Government Finance Statistics Yearbook, vol IX (Washington DC: IMF, 1985), which uses this.* Government revenue includes grants. Government expenditure is defined as 'non-repayable payments'. The Social Security element of Health, Education and Social Security expenditure (H/E/SS) includes welfare payments and state pensions schemes (including military) but excludes housing and community expenditure. Interest outlays represent all payments by government for money it has borrowed. Defence expenditure exclude pension schemes (shown as social security) - and, for this reason, should not be compared with the NATO-definition defence expenditures used elsewhere in this volume (which include military pension schemes). The IMF Manual on Government Finance Statistics (Washington DC: IMF, 1986) provides more detailed definitions.
   Our charts show trends in government spending from 1973 to 1983 (1975 to 1982 for France). The total of H/E/SS, interest and defence expenditures as a proportion of total government expenditure has in many cases risen to the point where it is difficult to see further increases in any of these items without a reduction in o
