Virginia class SSNs

Looks like the Block V versions of the Virginia class SSNs will be getting additional weapons capabilities.  More and more, subs are being seen as cruise missile delivery platforms.  This latest upgrade seems to confirm this.  My prediction is that UUVs will become one of the things that these SSNs ultimately end up carrying and launching.
