Pentagon Prepares to Build Banned Missiles as Treaty Expires

The missiles were banned by the 1987 INF Treaty, but the U.S. is pulling out due to allegations of Russian cheating.

The U.S. government is preparing to revive production of a banned missile system after the treaty prohibiting their use expires later this year. The 1987 INF Treaty banned medium to intermediate-range land-based missiles, but the U.S. is leaving the treaty due to what it claims are Russian violations of the treaty. Moscow denies the charges.

The report, an Aviation Week & Space Technology exclusive, states that the U.S. government plans to begin fabricating parts for new ground launched cruise missiles after the INF Treaty officially expires in August. The U.S. has accused Russia of deploying the 9M729 land-based cruise missile, which it says has a range that violates limitations set by the treaty.
