5. Not an expert

But yes, much of our nuclear weapon infrastructure is old. Very old. Our newest ICBM design is nearing 50 years of service. The launch facilities still run off 8inch floppy disks and 1970s era computers. I think our newest warhead design dates to the mid to late 70s. Not counting our cruise missiles, even our sub launched Tridents are nearing 30years old.
