Pershing II and SS-20 Missiles at the National Air and Space Museum

These American Pershing-II and Soviet SS-20 missiles are on display in the National Air and Space Museum's National Mall building. The Pershing-II and SS-20 were regarded as the most threatening missiles in their class, and were banned by the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty in December 1987.
