Statement of the United States of America: Trident I SLBMs

Bureau of Verification, Compliance, and Implementation
April 7, 2010


In connection with the Treaty between The United States of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, the United States of America declares that Trident I SLBMs, which were contained in Ohio-class submarines, are no longer SLBMs of an existing type and their launchers have been converted in a manner that renders such launchers incapable of launching Trident I ballistic missiles. The remaining Trident I SLBMs will not be used for purposes inconsistent with the Treaty.
