Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

PCU Texas Launched

PCU Texas (SSN-775) was launched Saturday at Newport News; a picture can be found here, and a time-lapse video is here (1 minute 36 seconds on Windows Media Player). I think this is the first submarine to be launched at Newport News since USS Cheyenne (SSN-773) in April 1995. (Those launches were much cooler, though, since they slid into the water, rather than being driven into a drydock).

Going deep...

(Edited 2025 11 Apr to change the hull number to the correct number; root cause of initial error is that I'm an idiot...)

Update 0952 12 Apr: Ninme has more background on the Texas.
