The Soviet Union now has nuclear cruise missiles on its submarines in the Baltic, US Defense Secretary Harold Brown said Wednesday at a meeting of NATO nuclear planners here. NATO Secretary General Joseph Luns said the weapons threatened not only Norway but also Denmark and West Germany.
According to Western military experts, the new Soviet submarine missile has been developed as a replacement to the older SS M-3.
