This may be the most fearsome US Navy weapon in the Pacific | CNN World

With the capacity to destroy well over a dozen Soviet cities in a single salvo, the USS Ohio is the largest guided missile submarine the United States Navy has ever put to sea. Given how powerful it is, the submarine stays one of the most fearsome US Navy weapons in the Pacific, despite having its missiles stripped. Like all US Navy submarines, the USS Ohio is nuclear powered and driven by a nuclear reactor providing steam for two turbines for the sub’s propeller to turn. The USS Ohio can stay submerged continuously and can allow it to carry 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles. With all of its capabilities, the USS Ohio is undoubtedly one of the most powerful weapons one can have.
