China Nuclear Submarine due

The Russians have nuclear submarines with ballistic missiles kept at launch-ready status, although Russian subs are not always kept in position to launch (unlike the U.S. Tridents).

Missiles launched from Russian submarines on patrol off the U.S. East Coast could, however, hit Washington, D.C., in about 10 minutes.

China as the major power will be expected to at least develop some nuclear sub capicity in the next few years.
