Thanks, guys. I appreciate the intel.

When I was a kid in the 80s, I remember reading an article (Avweek?) claiming that a few Tridents were outfitted with replacement satellites to re-establish communications in the event of nuclear war and ASAT weapons taking out satellites. Supposedly, these actually went to sea on deterrent patrols. I've never read anything about that since. Is this true?
