The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is NOT impervious to all known weapons or technologies. It is designed to to withstand near hits/misses with nuclear
weapons. Now, with the advances in made in missile tageting, people can "Put Warheads On Foreheads". It will not withstand any direct hit (something
withing one kiloyard). Now, being on a submarine during a nuclear attack is still somewhat dicey. It all depends on what kind of blast it is and how
close it is. A surface or airburst will not do anything, while a nuclear depth charge is effective around 1-2 nautical miles. And, if worse comes to
worse, a submarine can carry a lot of food.
