missile silos ???????

Seems like someone from a sub would use the correct terminology for the VLS. The only missile silos around are for land based ICBMs.

First, it's Irvine who says "silos," not the submariner. Second, a web search quickly found that there are silos on subs.

"The submarine has a double-hulled configuration with missile silos housed in the inner hull."
