Today’s Nuclear Submarines Are Designed To Deliver Far More Than Missiles To Foreign Shores

Written by 1 minute, 33 seconds Read

 

Submarine

As anyone who watched the movie Act of Valor knows, today’s U.S. nuclear submarines haul immense amounts of firepower across the seas of the world, and that they also deliver personnel just as quietly.

Any U.S. submarine can be deployed to carry SEALs, but some have been designed to carry swimmers and their gear far more effectively than others.

While not all of the following nuclear subs are designed to carry special forces teams, even fewer are designed to deliver SEALs to shore under the cover of the sea.

Those boats are equipped with Seal Deliver Vehicles (SDVs), and while we’re not sure which of the following submarines have them, it’s a safe bet that most of the subs to come off the production line in the future will.

In the meantime, the following slides are available to the public so we can get a glimpse of what U.S. undersea assets really look ike.

The USS Seawolf, the first of its class, was launched in 1995 and designed to replace the Los Angeles class of nuclear attack subs

The USS Connecticut, second in the Seawolf class, is 353 feet long and weighs 9,137 tons fully loaded

The USS Connecticut has made numerous journeys to the arctic circle and allows for unique access to the expansive ice fields
