PCU New Mexico Launched
PCU New Mexico (SSN 779), which was christened last month, was launched on Sunday, marking another milestone in her construction. Here's the first picture released of her in the water:
Note that she's still pretty light, in that part of her propulsor is visible above the waterline. Here's a "before" picture of her being rolled out prior to the launch. Other pictures of the boat and the various ceremonies they've held to date are available here. She's supposed to be commissioned around August -- can't wait to welcome the new boat to the fleet!
