True story.

Four Ohio class SSBN missile subs, the Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Georgia, had their ballistic missiles removed. The tubes were reworked and replaced with 154 Tomahawk missiles and redesignated SSGNs.

Some Pentagon staff weenie came up with the genius idea of calling them the OMFG (Ohio/Michigan/Florida/Georgia) Class missile subs.

Would that be because Zorgon lead us to Naval Space Command?

No, that would be true with or without Zorgon.

For when it's imperative that everything must die.

If any submarine could be called an OMFG class submarine, it would be this one

From "Arpeggio In Blue Steel". (The figurine is Iona, the A.I. that runs the ship).

That and the fact that they have a lot of experience working around ballistic missiles. Put a "SSBN" in space with lots of nukes and have it orbit at the ready to do whatever it's ordered to do. Cuts the early warning of an impending nuke strike in half or better. Ie no real warning.

Use it's rumored existence as leverage to keep putin types from acting up too much. Make it so that it can land when called to. Say once a week, month, 6 months, as needed. Someone goes "you're weaponising space with nukes." You bring her down to hide or just move her to a different orbit and say "inspect whats up there all you like. Were not doing anything." And when they don't find anything go "See theres nothing there."
