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."
