Abstract:

The VIRGINIA Class SSN 774 Submarine Program is bringing forward a critical national security asset designed to flexibly address the unique multi-mission requirements of the post-Cold War era. Capable of performing traditional submarine missions, dominating the littoral battle space and adapting to future requirements, the VIRGINIA Class Submarine satisfies any assigned role well into the Twenty-First Century. Intended to replace the fleet of SSN 688 Class submarines, the VIRGINIA Class Submarine is characterized by state-of-the-art stealth, enhanced features for special operations forces, and cost effective Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence capability. With an array of armament including the MK48 Advanced Capability torpedo and cruise missile vertical launch capability, the VIRGINIA Class Submarine maintains total undersea superiority at an affordable cost.
