Were often out-weighed by the disadvantegous, that's what kept it Cold. The framework was quickly established of MAD, or Mutual Assured Destruction in which the Soviets and the West knew that the first offensive nuclear attack might, or probably would end the world as we knew it. The USSR had a manpower and rocketry advantage, while the West had a Naval advantage and a Short Range Ballistic weapons advantage combined with a superior detection and alert status. In truth, the US had a gigantic advantage until the USSR began placing weapons in Cuba.
