U.S. security does not require nearly 1, nuclear weapons deployed on a triad of systems—bombers, land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), and submarine-launched ballistic. Navy have collectively accumulated over million miles and over 5, reactor-years of nuclear reactor operation since the first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus.

Naval Reactors estimates that building a nuclear-powered amphibious assault ship every three years or so could reduce the procurement cost of each nuclear- powered carrier (CVN) by about $65 million and each nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN) by about $20 million due to increased economies of scale in the production of nuclear propulsion. An attack could have resulted in the use of nuclear weapons against the U.S. invasion force, prompting an escalatory spiral to all out nuclear war."
