Abstract : The Navy's mission in the Strategic Forces program area is to provide an undersea strategic mission launch capability which will ensure that the United States maintains a credible and survivable deterrent to nuclear war. The Navy's strategic deterrent force will consist of twenty-nine nuclear submarines (SSBNs) in FY 1992 and twenty-four submarines (SSBNs) in FY 1993. SSBN forces covered include the POSEIDON, TRIDENT I (C-4) and TRIDENT II (D-5) SSBNs deployed worldwide. The submarines provide the launch platforms of four submarine tenders, one launch area support ship, related service craft, and four ships chartered from the Military Sealift Command (MSC). Funding for the operation of the SSBNs and support ships is included under the Ship Operations program.
