Pakistan is estimated to possess about 100–120 nuclear weapons for delivery by aircraft and land-based missiles (see table 6.8). It is widely believed that, in peacetime, Pakistan stores its nuclear warheads separate from their delivery vehicles. According to some accounts it is also possible that the warheads are kept in disassembled form.1 However, the Strategic Plans Division (SPD), which operates Pakistan's nuclear forces, has never confirmed such arrangements. In 2012 Pakistan conducted a series of missile trials testing most of its nuclear-capable missile types that are currently in operational service or still under development.
