"Delta III" conducts missile test

Recommended Posts

How long these due to remain in service for?


IIRC, it is expected that five Delta III SSBNs will remain in service until at least 2015. There were six in service last year, but one of these was in the process of decommissioning and has probably been withdrawn by now. Three of the Delta IV's were also being overhauled, so those will probably stay in service for the foreseeable future as well.

I remember something the Brits used to say back when steamships were being considered for military use. Something about sailors were ready to be blasted by cannon and cut by saber but not scalded to death. I wonder what they'd think of engineering spaces being turned into steam rooms fro recreational use.
