Who has 'em?[edit]

If the article is going to specifically mention the US, Russia, and Israel, it seems like it should mention all the countries with known or suspected SLBMs. Tempshill 23:13, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Such a section could indeed be added, with proper references. Regarding Israel, it would seem that their vessels are capable of nuclear-tipped cruise missiles and not ballistic missiles. Still, could be kept along with a see also section with SSG and SSGN. Scoo 06:18, 8 August 2006 (UTC)


Given that Dolphin class submarine and the source of its source (http://www.fas.org/news/israel/e20000619fearsof.htm) both state that they are cruise missles and not ballistic missles, I am removing that paragraph. It can be added to SLCM if someone wishes to do that. (Tragic Story 20:06, 20 September 2007 (UTC))

Cruise missiles and ballistic missiles[edit]

You'll note that the article about the Brahmos weapon states that it's a cruise missile, not a ballistic missile. The two are very different beasts since the cruise is under propulsion for the majority of free flight, whereas the ballistic has an initial burn, then is unpowered until a mid flight second or third stage which injects further power. Given that the Brahmos is a cruise missile, and not a ballistic missile I'll remove it again.

x-posting this to the article talk page.

Nuclear Warheads[edit]

The article currently states that SLBMs have nuclear warheads - whilst this is currently true, there is no reason why a conventional SLBM could not exist (the US was looking at conventional Trident at one point), so something along the lines of "all SLBMs currently in service carry a nuclear warhead" woud seem more appropriate.Jellyfish dave (talk) 16:18, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Ballistic missiles carry only nuclear warheads - reason: If SLBM (or ICBM) is launched it is for "other side" impossible to recognize what kind of warhead is on it installed. Exception is tests of missiles with tests warheads which launches are reported some days ahead. Incidentally US deny conventional warheads for BM.--Hornet24 (talk) 19:09, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
