Here yet with one more alternative as might be proposed to Mr. Corbyn a non-nuclear option to strategic deterrence.
Tactical Trident. Ohio-class submarines those ballistic missiles carrying a nuclear warhead replaced by canisters holding land-attack Tomahawk cruise missiles.
Tactical Trident able to fire [a single boat] prodigious numbers of cruise missiles
STRATEGIC DETERRENCE USING CONVENTIONAL WEAPONRY!
"Ohio-class SSGN-726 Tactical Trident"
"The Ohio class cruise missile submarine (SSGN) program entailed the refueling and conversion of the four SSBNs to dedicated cruise missile launch submarines to support the Land-Attack/Strike mission. Each new Multiple All-Up-Round (AUR) Canister (MAC) launchers contain seven Tomahawk land-attack missiles (TLAMs) and fit within the existing Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) vertical launch tubes. Each SSGN accommodates up to 22 MACs, for a total of 154 TLAMs"
Tactical Trident requires replacing the missiles with a "canister launcher" containing seven land-attack Tomahawk cruise missiles. Those Tomahawk not carrying a nuclear warhead.
British Trident missile firing submarines only able to accommodate sixteen "canisters" of seven Tomahawk each. Still a respectable number of cruise missiles, one-hundred-twelve . Fired at specially selected high-value-targets in a single barrage I can well imagine the damage done quite immense.
THAT RANGE OF A TOMAHAWK CRUISE MISSILE FAR LESS THAN A TRIDENT BALLISTIC MISSILE ACKNOWLEDGED! PERHAPS THE BRITISH CAN REVERSE-ENGINEER AN EXTENDED RANGE RUSSIAN RK-55 THAT WILL DO THE JOB BETTER?
