Spotted this from the official USN account and thought folks here might find it interesting. It seems to be just various clips without any narration and very low rez (they even mention it in the YouTube description but I suspect that's to make sure no displays in the background that are sensitive are readable).

Nonetheless, insight into gear, crew activity, the noise and chow aboard a pretty modern nuke boat.

The U.S.S. Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Georgia of the class, were converted into conventional cruise missile boats in 1994 unfortunately, but it is kind of cool that they can now launch up to 154 x Tomahawk Missiles onto a target.

There are nuclear warheads for Tomahawks, so that might be kind of fun. The Navy is also developing the  SLCM in the future that can be nuclear-able too.
