Pakistan continues to prioritize the development and deployment of new nuclear weapons and delivery systems as part of its ‘full spectrum deterrence posture’ vis-à-vis India. It is estimated that Pakistan possessed 150–60 warheads as of January 2019 (see table 6.8). Pakistan’s nuclear weapon arsenal is likely to continue to expand over the next decade, although estimates of the increase in warhead numbers vary considerably.1
