US Family of Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM)

Polaris, Poseidon and Trident I & II SLBMs.

The Polaris missile was a submarine-launched, two-stage solid-fuel nuclear-armed ballistic missile (SLBM) built during the Cold War by Lockheed for the United States Navy. It was designed to be used as part of the US Navy's contribution to the United States' arsenal of nuclear weapons, replacing the Regulus cruise missile. Known as a Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM), it first flew from Cape Canaveral on January 7, 1960.

Following the Polaris Sales Agreement in 1963 Polaris missiles were also carried on UK submarines between 1968 and the mid 1990s.

Polaris was replaced in the US Navy by Poseidon, beginning in 1972. In the 1980s both were replaced by Trident I.

The Poseidon missile was the second US Navy ballistic missile system, powered by a two-stage solid fuel rocket. It succeeded the Polaris missile beginning in 1972, bringing major advances in warheads and accuracy. It was followed by Trident I in 1979, and Trident II in 1990.

The Trident missile is a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) designed by Lockheed Martin Space Systems in the United States which is armed with nuclear warheads and is launched from SSBNs, nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Trident missiles are carried by fourteen active US Navy Ohio class submarines and, with British warheads, four Royal Navy Vanguard class submarines.

During the late 1970s, the Soviet Union developed a large number of heavy, increasingly accurate, MIRVed ICBMs (like the SS-18) that seriously threatened the survival of Minuteman III missiles in their silos. The second variant of the Trident is more sophisticated and can carry a heavier payload. It is accurate enough to be a first strike weapon. All three stages of the Trident II are made of graphite epoxy, making the missile much lighter. The Trident II was the original missile on the British Vanguard and Ohio SSBNs since USS Tennessee (SSBN-734). The D5 missile is currently carried by twelve Ohio class SSBNs.

Wow thats a scary fact. Thats in one submarine carrying enough firepower to
wipe out some nations. Then there is 8 of them floating around. I wonder if
we cut back on the sub patrol down tolike 4-6 how much money we would save?
Same with the aircraft carriers?

this country has at least 10,000+ nuclear weapons that the general public
knows about thanks to the media, but ill bet you this country has double
that number stashed away in hidden silos, installations and on board our
ships and nuclear subs

Автор Derek Wall ( назад)
yep. hopefully thered be enough of us left over to repopulate. because by
the time its over, im sure as many as 300,000,000-4,000,000,000+ could be
killed but that's just a guess though so don't quote me on that. but I know
the death toll would be some where in the middle to upper millions. the
only way I can see casualties being in the billions is if we fired pretty
much every weapon in our stockpile

Автор Derek Wall ( назад)
another thing thatd make surviving it all a pain in the ass is the lack in
resources thatd be left over (if any at all). even if you were no where
near any impact point like a major city youre still gonna have things like
electricity failure, no flowing water (or non-radioactive water), no
communication like telephones, radioes, or any kind of communication method
to find out who is all still alive. that's if anyone else survives at all

Автор Derek Wall ( назад)
i think thatd be a good place to be. after all you do die so quickly that
you don't even feel the slightest amount of pain. dying in a nuclear
explosion during a nuclear exchange isn't what everyone should fear, its
survival. fallout, famine, disease, lawlessness, and having no where to go
or any place to call a safe haven is what you oughta worry about. surviving
a nuclear apocalypse and possibly having to fight other survivors for the
last scrap of food would be what youd have to worry about

if youre not afraid to die then I agree, launch those fuckers and let all

the end of the world may not scare me, but surviving to see the
post-apocolyptic land that was laid to waste is what scares me. surviving
the aftermath from what i hear can be hell if every single ounce of
resource youd need was either contaminated by fall out, or vaporized by one
of the nukes when it went off

You totally forget that US also have a back up in France there have its own
SLBM program. And UK there also have Trident like US but with UK warheads.
Satan and rs-24 missils are good, but the fact is just 4 Ohio Class
Submarines if you put MIRV 10 warheads in them, can kill around 200.000.000
million Russians. And Same can Russian Submarines do. The danger is when
there is a good chances off winning a Nuclear War. US had that option in
Cuba Crises and Russia had in late 1970-1980es

@nukewarfare2 omfg i know! us scrapped one of its best land based icbms
which we made to be more resilient against russian missiles and it had MIRV
capabilities. russia still has the satan missile and a new rs-24 missile
both very powerful with alot of MIRVs and throw weight. now we only have
minutemen for land, trident for subs and bombers..

advanced missiles need them.

There is an important question which I would ask: On Wikipaedia it is
written Trident acquires a low earthed orbital pathway few minutes after
launch. If it is true, Trident should be unlimited in range, because an
orbiting missile can reach any point on surface, I think, if opportune
orbital parametrtes are achieved

Each of our Ohio class subs carries 24 missiles, each with 8 warheads with
a yield of up to 475 kt. That's 192 nukes that are each accurate enough to
hit an individual building over 4000 nautical miles away, which means they
can obliterate even hardened targets. At any one time, we have a dozen of
those subs prowling the oceans, silent and undetectable. Attacking the USA
would be suicide.
