No, the only ICBMs any country including US should invest in are mobile ones. Hard to find and hit if the location changes regularly and they are quickly abled to be set up and launched.
60's treaty, plus if you wanna use space weapons, just put some tungsten rods and let gravity do the rest, cheaper and equal to a nuke...Why not put them on the space platform!?
I would think they would be susceptible to hacking, and the risk of getting and keeping them in orbit. They wouldn’t detonate if they were damaged or for some reason they reentered the atmosphere. But that would be some highly enriched uranium coming down in a fire ball.Why not put them on the space platform!?
Thats why Russia keeps theirs parked in protected garages and only sends them out when they get an alert to deploy and they can only travel a few chosen roads through the forest they are hidden in. They are only allowed to go past chosen areas when they know they are under attack themselves.I’ve always had a concern with Mobil launchers. Small military units running around in public roads and lands with TELs would seem susceptible to attacks either terrorist or sleepers in a war situation.
My understanding was the the silos were the first to launch as soon as a enemy launch is detected. They were first strike. The air and sub launchers are hidden and mobile filling the roll of TEL’s.
Simply build them. Russia has built ICBMs with mid course correction to evade our missile defense systems better. China has built their Intermediate range ballistic carrier killer missile with mid course correction as well so it can get close to a carrier strike group or the carrier itself.How do we get some of those? Seems they might come in handy.

Although I do not know for sure if your 100% correct on this. I do agree that the US does tend to hold their military tech close till right time.Whatever the Russians or Chinese have the US had likely for decades before they even started development.
For the longest time now it's been what I call the trickle down technology effect in layman's terms. The West/US create, manufacture, and implements technology first, than the Russians and Chinese through espionage of all types usually get a hold of the "how to specs", than make themselves a modified version of what the US made.
The United States hardly and rarly makes announcements or shows off their weapons because our systems are so beyond advanced we don't want them to know truly what we are capable of. In a sense we are keeping our cards close until we need to lay them down so to speak.
So rest assured anything and everything the Russians and Chinese have we already have and likely for a while.
First of all, citation needed for your claim, because Biden has already agreed to a $2 trillion nuclear rearmament plan that includes replacing 400 Minuteman III ICBMS with 600 new nuclear missiles with new nuclear warheads. This new nuclear arms race is going to get a lot of people killed.Meanwhile the Traitorous Democrats are chomping at the bit to get rid of our land based silos for them!!!
I think they are still considered more accurate than other missiles, despite missiles than can course-correct mid-flight. Plus, course-correcting missiles rely on gps. Ground-based ICBMs do not from what I understand.Secondly, the concept of land-based missile silos is antiquated and they should be eliminated from American soil.
