USS NORTH DAKOTA - Virginia class submarine
OCTOBER 25 2014
US Navy will commission its newest attack submarine North Dakota, during a ceremony Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014, at Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut.
North Dakota is the second ship named in honor of North Dakota, and will be the 11th Virginia-class submarine.
The USS Virginia-class submarines are the United States newest and most advanced submarine. The first Virginia slipped beneath the waves just eight years ago and only ten vessels have been completed. They take more than five years to build and run about $2.4 billion apiece. The Virginia-class submarine is a new breed of high-tech post-Cold War nuclear subs. The submarines are nearly 400 feet long and have been in service since 2003. The ships were designed to function well in both deep sea and low-depth waters.
