  1. This is very much run as a pooled resource isn’t it, with the U.K. obviously only having a tiny bit of the pool?

    I’m not sure if this is my memory inventing things but I’m sure that ages ago I saw or read something that was explaining that when UK missiles went for maintenance they got shipped back to the USA and when the UK wanted to pull a missile out of the pool after maintenance there was no attempt to track which ones were the UK missiles and in fact the very opposite happens. The UK gets to randomly choose which missiles it takes from storage so that there can be no concerns that the US might somehow be “spiking” the missiles it provides to the UK with secret kill switches and stuff like that. Is that how it works or is this me misremembering stuff?
