Some analysts expressed concerns over “ongoing efforts to modernize the [U.S.] intercontinental ballistic missiles”, and “a larger, more vertically integrated company would leave the military with fewer choices in certain sectors of the market.” To some, it seems, the first stage is “half empty” when it comes to this deal
