The first eight Ohio SSBNs carried the Trident I SLBM, while the last eight carried Trident II. The Navy upgraded the older units to Trident II, but did they actually bother doing so with the first four Ohios? Did they go straight from Trident I to SSGN?
On 7 November 2003, while Georgia was docked at Bangor, Washington, her C-4 Trident I missiles were offloaded.
