AFNWC splits ICBMs in two
The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center recently created two new directorates to focus on its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) mission. An unarmed Minuteman III, the current version of the ICBM, launches during a developmental test at 12:33 a.m. Pacific Time Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. It will be replaced with the new Ground Based Strategic Deterrent ICBM, starting in the late 2020s. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Clayton Wear)
