    A common Strategic Defense Fund similar to the Shipbuilding and Conversion, Navy (SCN) appropriation account, or the National Sea-Based Deterrence Fund, that provides for a separate DOD fund established by Congress to specifically fund Nuclear Deterrent Forces only. This fund would provide for the Ohio Replacement development & construction, Common ICBM/FBM recapitalization, ICBM Missile Launch Complex upgrades and maintenance, upgrades and maintenance of all nuclear warheads including its support infrastructure, and any nuclear weapon transport, deliver/release of nuclear weapons (platform agnostic) to include platforms that provide communications and control of said assets (E-8A Mercury, E-4B NAOC, Air Force One). This fund would include alternative basing modes (rail or wheeled mobilized) if developed and fielded.
