NPR = Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). NRP USA!
“While Virginia-class submarines can use conventional deterrence to keep
adversaries in check, a sub-launched cruise missile with a nuclear
warhead would be incorporated into Virginia [class submarines] and give national command
authority additional escalation control,” - - Rear Admiral John Tammen.
"US Navy to arm Virginia submarines with nuclear warheads"
"The United States Navy is set to add nuclear warheads to its Virginia-class attack submarines as part of new plans in the administration of US President Donald Trump."
At least since 2011 the decision had been made for the nuclear attack submarines of the U.S. Navy to no longer carry atomic weapons of any sort. Torpedoes, naval sea mines, missiles with nuclear warheads. Nuclear attack submarines as opposed to the Ohio class ballistic missile firing submersibles.
This policy is being reversed? Seems to be so! Think also this not meaning MORE atomic munitions. NEW is not necessarily MORE but can mean better! You can accomplish more with less using improved and more advanced technology.
