The only ballistic sub class left in the US is the Ohio-class. The newest one was built in the mid 80s.

Just wonder if the US is building its replacement for the Ohio class and why havent they started it already, smaller boats with few missiles but more of them!

a good number of the Ohio class SSBNs have been retired from service in accordance with treaty obligations. Some of them are being converted to tomahawk launch platforms using the existing missle tubes to hold seven or so tomahawks each.
