Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding division authenticated the keel of the Virginia-class attack submarine, New Jersey (SSN 796) on Monday.
New Jersey is the 23rd Virginia-class fast attack submarine. Construction began in March 2016 and is about 42 percent complete. The boat is scheduled for delivery to the Navy in 2021.
The nuclear-powered fast attack submarines are designed to seek and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships as well as project power ashore with Tomahawk cruise missiles and Special Operation Forces, carry out Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions; support carrier battle group operations; and engage in naval mine warfare.
Virginia-class submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral (shallow coastal water) missions. They are replacing older Los Angeles-class submarines, many of which have already been decommissioned.
The United States (US) is likely to sign a deal for 10 Virginia-class submarines next month with General Dynamics Electric Boat and subcontractor Huntington Ingalls Industries. The 10-ship contract will include nine 84-foot Block V Virginia Payload Module (VPM) subs, according to budget documents submitted to Congress this week
