SSGNs On Parade

There's been lots of SSGN news going on the last couple of months. With the initial deployment of USS Ohio (SSGN 726) and the upcoming return of USS Georgia (SSBN 729) to her namesake state, all four submarines in the conversion program are well on their way to finishing one of the most successful naval conversion programs ever. I'm looking forward to the first stories of USS Ohio's first deployed crew swap in Guam early next year.

The other two boats, which are between Ohio and Georgia in the conversion process, are also featured in some new multimedia on the 'net. Here's a YouTube photo slideshow of a tour of USS Michigan (SSBN 727) that happened earlier this year; the video was posted by a national officer of U.S. Submarine Veterans:




Also, here's an article that mentions the upcoming deployment of USS Michigan along with a discussion of the saga of the ASDS she'll be carrying.

Finally, there are some new pictures of Seal Delivery Vehicle operations from USS Florida (SSBN 728) that took place earlier this summer, but were just released recently by the Navy. Here's one picture:

Two other are here and here.

Edited 1540 06 Dec to correct the hull number of USS Georgia.

Tuebor!

Nice to see the Michigan again. She was a great boat back then and she'll definitely be great as the ultimate hunter-killer.
