As of January 2015 Russia maintained an arsenal of approximately 4380 nuclear warheads assigned to operational forces. About 2430 of these are strategic warheads, including 1780 that are deployed on ballistic missiles and at bomber bases, and nearly 700 bomber and submarine warheads that are kept in storage. Russia also possessed nearly 2000 non-strategic (tactical) nuclear warheads. A further 3120 warheads were retired or awaiting dismantlement, for a total inventory of roughly 7500 warheads (see table 11.3).
