Interesting! So, a new submarine class broadly comparable to the Seawolfs and an SSGN based off the Columbia-class Ohio-replacement.

Not entirely surprised that the Columbia-class is getting some SSGN sisters, though. The Ohio SSGNs were done partly because the hulls still had 20-odd years left in them. Would have been a great shame to just turn them into razor blades.
