    In service with the Russian Navy less than a dozen submarines ...

    doesn’t sound very good. maybe you should write "The Russian Navy is armed with enough submarines ..."?

    Again, some "analyst" thought of comparing a liquid rocket with a solid rocket?
    Oh well...

      they will always be compared and defended their advantages.

        Then it is necessary to compare the totality of the tactical, technical and operational characteristics.
        Because the rocket engine, in addition to the obvious advantages in the performance characteristics, has a huge number of disadvantages in operation. And the Blue product also has such a piquant feature as a wet start.

          besides, it also has such a piquant feature as a "wet start"

          there is a plus in this when shooting in submerged condition ... especially when launching.
          and Americans can’t afford it ...

      Trident 2 fuel is 75% solid.
      The solid rocket propellant is used in the Trident-2 solid propellant rocket engine. Solid components — octogen, aluminum, and ammonium perchlorate — make up 75 percent of the fuel. As a binder, polyethylene glycol, nitrocellulose, nitroglycerin and hexadiisocyanate are used. The difference from Trident-1 fuel is the use of polyethylene glycol (PEG) instead of polyglycol adipate (PGA). This allowed to increase the percentage of solids from 70 to 75. The fuel was designated PEG / NG75. Joint Venture, the fuel producer, gave it the designation NEPE-75 [5] (from the English Nitrate Ester Plasticized Polyether - a polyester plasticized with nitric acid ester).
