The US Navy has revealed the first operational deployment of the Trident III nuclear-powered submarine-launched ballistic missile system, or SLBM.
The SLBM is a powerful nuclear weapon that is capable of reaching deep into the ocean to hit targets on land or sea.
The Navy plans to use the SLBM to launch submarine-based ballistic missiles, but has not yet revealed the types of missiles the SLBMs will launch.
The submarine-armed Trident III submarine- launched ballistic missile, or SCBM.

The first operational SLBM deployment is scheduled for 2019.
The US is expected to use up to four of the missiles, and the SLBs could carry up to six of them.
The US is not the first country to deploy a nuclear SLBM, and its SLBM was designed by Russia, but the US is the first to deploy the nuclear weapon aboard a submarine.
The submarines will carry the SLMs on their decks, and launch them from a submerged ship, according to the Navy.
The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-77) carries the Trident SLBM on board as part of the ship’s anti-surface warfare (ASW) capabilities.
The Navy has already said it will deploy the SLMMs in the coming years, and officials have said the US has more than enough warheads to launch them at targets at sea, including targets on the coast of the United States.
A nuclear SLBBM, with its powerful nuclear warheads and submarine-to-subsurface missiles, could potentially target targets on US soil.
The military has said it could also target enemy submarines in the Mediterranean and North Sea, as well as naval vessels in the Pacific.
The deployment of nuclear SLBs by the US Navy would be a big change from its nuclear missile deployments.
The Pentagon’s SLBM program was originally intended to be used against North Korea, but it was expanded to include a wide range of targets, including US ships.
The submarine-fired SLBM will be capable of striking targets up to 200 miles (320 kilometers) away.
It can also reach deep into US territory, and could potentially hit targets off the coast and the coastlines of countries like China, Russia, Iran and India.
