National Security Directive 71: FY 1992-1997 Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Plan   [open pdf - 1MB]

Alternate Title: NSD 71: FY 1992-1997 Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Plan

In this Directive, President H.W. Bush approves "the Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Plan for the fiscal year 1992 through 1993, as presented in the attached Nuclear Weapons Stockpile Plan for FY 1992-FY 1997. The levels depicted for FY 1993 and beyond should be reviewed immediately, particularly in view of the further reductions in deployed strategic weapons agreed at my June 1992 meeting with President Yeltsin. Those levels may require adjustments, based on those recent arms control achievements, as well as on other changes in the international political environment, the U.S. and allied response to that evolving situation, and the capability of the nuclear weapons production complex."
