Launch delivery vehicles have been obsolete since their inception.

It's much easier to simply smuggle strategic weapons into the target site, or assemble them there, and then have them setup for remote activation. The internet makes this easier than ever. This gives actors millisecond strike time, instead of a factor of minutes.

The main targets of this are civilian, as secure facilities are harder to penetrate. That makes secure facilities more of a target for ballistics, but it also means that more anti-ballistic measures will be protecting those trajectories. This has been discussed since the seventies at least.
