Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

Russia / Soviet Special Weapons Agencies

In 1998 Defence Minister Igor Sergeyev proposed a plan to unify the strategic forces under a Joint Main Command of the Strategic Deterrent Forces (JMC SDF). This resulted in serious tensions between the Minister and senior officers within the Navy and General Staff. Under Sergeyev's plan, all of Russia's nuclear forces (the Strategic Missile Forces, Navy SSBNs, strategic bombers of the 37th Air Force and nuclear ordnance of the 12th Main Directorate of the Defence Ministry) would have been concentrated under a single operational command.
