Possible delay to US Trident Replacement

A report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) proposes a 3 year delay and a reduction in submarine numbers for the US Trident Replacement programme, in order to save $30 billion. If implemented this would have a serious impact on the British programme. The CBO report says that the US/UK agreement for the Common Missile Compartment would need to be renegotiated. This would probably increase the costs of the British Trident replacement. The implications for the US are discussed in a blog from Hans Kristensen of the Federation of American Scientists.  CBO report (see page 78)
