      Martin Marietta LGM Peacekeeper. The Peacekeeper (originally known as "MX" missile) was the most modern ICBM in the USAF inventory for almost 20 years. It was intended as a replacement for the LGM Minuteman, but it suffered from a long development time, and was actually retired before the Minuteman because of arms reduction treaties.. As early as , the USAF made . present silos. For the longer term: mobile basing is stable if deployed randomly over large land areas, but not if bunched at known garrisons.
