SSN Oregon ready for sea trials

Post by koimaster » January 25th 2022, 3:17pm

General Dynamics Electric Boat is just weeks from delivering attack submarine Oregon to the Navy, about 16 months after Oregon was originally due and nearly two years after the Connecticut shipyard delivered its last submarine.

This Block IV Virginia-class attack submarine has suffered from a complex web of factors, some related to the COVID-19 pandemic now entering its third year, but most related to the prioritization of the Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine program, Electric Boat President Kevin Graney said in an update on the yard’s performance.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Yeah, the "hotels" always get fed first. USS Alabama, the seventh ship to bear that name, is a ballistic missile submarine.

Congratulations to Oregon and the newest member of the Navy fleet.

They may be slower, but the SSBs pack a hell of a punch...
