Soviets may be trying to hide missiles among bloc rockets

The Soviet Union may be trying to hide intercontinental nuclear missiles among the medium-range SS-20 rockets it is stationing in Eastern-bloc nations, according to Jane's Defence Weekly. If so, this would mean the Soviets are not complying with SALT I. The treaty expired in October 1977, but both sides agreed to honor it until a new treaty replaced it.

Jane's reported Tuesday that a nuclear-powered Soviet attack submarine, trying to sneak out of the Mediterranean Sea in the ''noise shadow'' of a Soviet tanker, collided with the covering ship and was heavily damaged. The accident occurred Sept. 18.
