The strap on boosters would make a nice sized MMIII replacement and Prompt Global Strike missile (with new high density energetic solid fuel of course)

*Yes I know it would take much more than that :D

5m diameter makes them logistically impractical. ICBM sites are not readily accessible by barge. So your use of the qualifier "nice" is inappropriate.

a nice "through the keyhole" article ;) (see what I did there)

really is an excellent forum that I lurk on but don't post... No doubt some of you will be wondering why I don't have the decency to do the same here!

Several SPF members would seem to be active there using the same name as here and I suspect others go incognito using a different "codename"... But having worked in that world for so long they are bound to be highly security conscious :p
