Amarillo, Texas - After more than 25 years in the inactive stockpile, B & W Pantex will begin disassembling  a type of thermonuclear warheads. The National Nuclear Security Administration announced Tuesday the Amarillo Pantex facility will begin to disassemble W84 warheads.
  
These warheads were put into practice in the early 1980's for use with ground launched missiles. As part of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the warheads were decommissioned in December of 1983.
