    Background: The combined Warsaw Pact airforce and marine amphibious assault forces have been giving an impressive display of strength in Bulgaria. In a massive show of strength, members of the Warsaw Pact started military exercises condemned Shield '82 in Eastern Bulgaria on September 25. The wargames involving some 60,000 troops, are thought to be the biggest ever held. On September 30, Warsaw Pact leaders followed a series of tactical moves involving the latest land, air and sea military hardware at their disposal. Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, East Germany, Poland, the Soviet Union and members of the Romanian forces are taking part in the manoeuvres, led by Bulgarian Defence Minister Dobri Dzhurov. They are the first joint exercises to be held since the creation of the Warsaw Pact in 1955. The Head of the Warsaw Pact's armed forces, Soviet Marshal Viktor Kulikov, said the military power of the Western and Eastern blocks were relatively balanced. He also said the world now forced the most dangerous situation since World War Two, and accused the United States of using the threat of a new war as a means of achieving its "hegemonic" aims.
