The designation YLGM-182A had been allocated for the forthcoming prototype missiles of the GBSD (Ground Based Strategic Deterrent) program. However, when the name and designation of the missile was officially announced by the U.S. Air Force in 2022, it was called the LGM-35A Sentinel, q.v. for more information on GBSD. No reason was given, why the allocated number 182 was changed to an out-of-sequence one, and why specifically 35 was chosen.


For data on GBSD, see LGM-35 Sentinel.
