article The story of how the U.S. Navy came to build the world’s largest, most powerful, most expensive, most complex, most technically complex, and most politically fraught nuclear weapon goes back to the early 1950s.
When it became clear that the U,S.
military would soon need a nuclear weapon, the Navy’s Office of Naval Research (ONR) was given the task of designing and building it.
The work involved massive amounts of funding, including millions of dollars for a highly secretive project known as the Trinity Program, which included the development of the B61-12 and B61ST nuclear weapons.
At the same time, the Department of Energy (DOE) was also involved in designing and constructing a number of other weapons, including the Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), a long-range nuclear weapon that could destroy targets at distances of up to 6,000 miles.
The United States had the highest annual spending for military hardware and was the only country to spend over $3 trillion on defense in 2016, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
The program, which is estimated to have cost between $300 billion and $1 trillion, was originally designed to make the United States the dominant nuclear power in the world.
But as the Cold War escalated and the Cold-War era became a decade-long war, the US. entered a decade of stagnation, falling behind other nations in military spending, and was forced to cut its own spending in the early 1970s.
It was a time of great technological change and technological advancement, which gave the Pentagon new weapons.
In 1972, the Pentagon was tasked with developing a new nuclear weapon with the goal of replacing the Trident II, a long range missile system that the US had used since World War II.
That same year, the Joint Chiefs of Staff released a report on the future of the US nuclear force that laid out a detailed plan to develop a new warhead and nuclear delivery system.
It envisioned a new type of nuclear weapon and the development and delivery system that would carry it.
As the new weapon was developed, the program was given a new name: the Trident III, the “first new nuclear weapons system in more than a decade.”
The Pentagon was finally ready to announce the new system, known as Trident IIA, on June 27, 1972, less than two weeks after the new nuclear-armed submarine, USS John F. Kennedy, was launched into space.
By the time the first Trident IIB was launched in 1973, the US Navy had become the dominant player in the global nuclear game, with the most powerful nuclear weapons in the history of the world and a large stockpile of nuclear weapons, weapons that were capable of delivering hundreds of kilotons of explosive force, including nuclear weapons and nuclear warheads.
It wasn’t until the end of that decade that the Navy was able to announce that Trident II had been canceled.
By then, the Soviet Union had taken over the US, and the U and NATO had entered a period of heightened tension with Russia and China.
In 1976, a report by the US Defense Science Board concluded that “a major military buildup is not the only and only way to prevent a potential Soviet nuclear capability from developing.”
The report stated that the military must be able to “continue to maintain and improve capabilities to defend the United, as well as to deter a Russian or Chinese nuclear capability.”
The US, however, did not want to see Russia and/or China take over the world for the foreseeable future, and decided to build nuclear weapons at its own expense.
By 1977, President Gerald Ford’s National Security Advisor, John Foster Dulles, and Defense Secretary William Casey announced that the United State would build a nuclear deterrent, or a nuclear triad, in a way that would make the US a world leader in the field of nuclear power.
But it wasn’t a nuclear weapons triad.
It referred to a series of military technologies that were meant to increase the United’s military capabilities and to make them more powerful.
As a result, it became known as “the Triad of the 21st Century.”
The Triad was meant to make it easier for the US to defend itself against the development, proliferation, and use of weapons of mass destruction.
And the Triad would have a lot of consequences.
In fact, it had a great deal of potential.
By putting a lot more money into defense, the United would be able make the defense systems of the future better, stronger, and more capable.
But in the late 1970s, it began to become clear that if the United was to keep pace with the Soviets and China, its nuclear weapons would be of limited use.
In 1977, the Congressional Research Service published a report entitled The Triads Deterrent.
It argued that the Triads would have to be supplemented with other weapons to make up for the lack of a nuclear arsenal.
This was, in part,
