The Ohio mods seem really interesting
Dry deck shelter - Wikipedia
Forgive a naive ignorant pongo here, but wouldn't a fleet of Ohio-class multi-role subs with nuclear capable cruise missiles be an interesting middle ground? Give up on a like for like Trident replacement, use those savings to avoid all the other swinging defence cuts, but staying in the nuclear club? Buy enough of the things to make sure there's always one or two at sea, but be able to use them for other tasks? Bit of a thread drift but still a multi role boat (if not a ship).

NO. We've been all over this dozens of times.
