Let's start with the fact that both countries have signed the START-3, according to which they undertake to reduce and limit the number of strategic offensive arms. The number of ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and heavy strategic bombers can not exceed 700 units. The US has almost reached that figure, as they have 741 platform to launch and 1481 warheads. Russia has 521 platforms with 1735 warheads.
