Seawolf-Class Boats Gathering In Puget Sound
USS Seawolf (SSN 21) arrived in her new homeport of Bremerton this weekend, joining USS Jimmy Carter (SSN 23) in the Puget Sound. The other ship of the class, USS Connecticut (SSN 22), is heading to Bremerton herself at the end of her upcoming deployment.
In addition to making it easier for the three Seawolf-class boats to share training resources and spare parts, this move pretty much makes Naval Base Kitsap the most powerful Navy base in the world; it's homeported ships could pretty much destroy the world and sink any ships or submarines they want to -- no other base can say that. (Specifically, no other base has a ship or submarine that could win a fight against a Seawolf-class sub.) Plus, they also have an aircraft carrier.
