US Navy Adopted Mississippi Virginia-Type SSN-782

During the ceremony, held in Pascagoule, the US Navy adopted the multipurpose Mississippi-type Virginia SSN-782 SSN-XNUMX, built by General Dynamics Electric Boat.


The Mississippi is the ninth submarine of the Virginia type. The construction of the PLA began on 19 on February 2007 of the year, the keel laying ceremony of the SSN-782 took place on 9 on June 2010 of the year, and the baptism on December 3 of 2011. The PLA was transferred to the US Navy 2 on May 2012 after completing acceptance tests by the US Navy Technical Inspection and Inspection Team (INSURV).

The construction of the submarine and the transfer of the US Navy SSN-782 was completed by the company in 62 months, which is a new record (according to the contract, the PLA was planned to transfer the fleet April 30, 2013). The Mississippi was built three months faster than the Missouri Submarine (SSN-780), previously handed over to the US Navy by General Dynamic Electric Boat.

The construction of the first 18 Virginia-class submarines is carried out jointly by the companies Newport News Shipbuilding and General Dynamics Electric Boat. The SSN-774 Virginia submarine, which became part of the US Navy 23 on October 2004, was built by General Dynamics.

To date, the US Navy has received eight Virginia-type PLA: Virginia (SSN-774), Hawaii (SSN-776), New Hampshire (SSN-778) and SSN-780 Missouri, built Electric Bot, as well as Texas (SSN-775), North Carolina (SSN-777), New Mexico (SSN-779) and California (SSN-781), built by Newport News.

As planned, the Minnesota 10-I (SSN-783) submarine of the Virginia type will be transferred to the US Navy in 2013. By the end of this year, the construction of the Indiana submarine (SSN-789) should begin and the Minnesota submarine (SSN-783) will be launched.

In total for the US Navy, consistently improving combat capabilities, it is planned to build Virginia-type 30 submarines.

Virginia submarines have a length of 114,2 m (377 ft), a width of 10,4 m (34 ft) and a displacement of 7835 t. The speed of the submarine is more than 25 nodes in a submerged position, the depth is more than 240 m. The submarine is equipped with a reactor that does not require refueling throughout the entire life cycle. Crew - 134 person. Submarine armament includes Tomahawk cruise missiles, four 533-mm torpedo tubes with Mk48 ADCAP Mod.6 torpedoes, sea mines and unmanned underwater vehicles.

    The pace of construction is striking 2004-2012 - 8 app., And an order for 30 appl too. On one ash, three Virginia - not happy.

      Thanks for the info - good news for American taxpayers and bad news for various subjects who dream of some kind of "multipolarity" in their dreams laughing
      And pay attention: the Pentagon does not use the words "may", "possibly", "in the future" at all! Only "released", "delivered" and "put into battle" - feel the difference between fairy tales and real deeds laughing

        The good news for American taxpayers will be when states gradually move away from toilet paper called the dollar in their calculations. To whom then will you push it in. And where will a large percentage of US GDP go under the name of financial services for the retraction of toilet paper. As you know, paper does not pay for servicing a submarine; the Chinese and Japanese will not sell electronics and spare parts for toilet paper.

      Why are they especially surprised if they even do that?



      Built only six years.

      Russia is building Corvettes for 6-8 years.

          Great boat! At the beginning of 2002, the US Navy had 54 multipurpose submarines, most of which belong to Los Angeles type submarines built in 1976-1996.
          It was planned to replace them with nuclear powered submarines of the Seawolf type, but the excessively high cost did not allow the construction of a large series of nuclear submarines of this type.
          Therefore, in 1994, the United States began to create a new multi-purpose nuclear submarine, the project of which NSSN is a kind of compromise between the cost and combat effectiveness of the boat. During its development, an attempt was made to maintain the high combat qualities of the Seawolf nuclear submarines while reducing costs by at least 30%.
          The first boat of this project - SSN-774 "Virginia" entered service in the US Navy at the end of October 2004.
          In accordance with the changing military-political situation in the world, the list of tasks that the new type of nuclear submarines was called upon to correct was also adjusted. While maintaining high efficiency in the fight against enemy nuclear submarines in the open ocean, boats of this type should also solve a wide range of problems in operations as part of the combined formations of the US armed forces in areas of regional crises.

    And this is against the background of the fact that there are statements that the nuclear submarine pr.941 "Akula", the remaining 3 pieces, will be written off and disposed of.
    What are we going to go under under the ice, or Russia no longer needs the Arctic shelf.

      We are going ... only ... slowly ...

      Six strategic submarine missile carriers of the Borei and Borei-A class (projects 955 and 955A) are already at different stages of production, a senior defense industry official said.



      "The corps of the head Borey-A has already been formed, and back in 2011, Sevmash began preparatory work on the fifth and sixth corps," said the interlocutor of RIA Novosti.

      He recalled that the first two boats of Project 955 "Yuri Dolgoruky" and "Alexander Nevsky" are already ready to be put into service. The construction of the third "Borey" - "Vladimir Monomakh" will be completed in 2013.

      The strategic submarines of this project should soon become the basis of Russia's naval strategic nuclear forces, and for their armament, the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile has been created and is being prepared for adoption.

        veteran.air force, Greetings! I am glad to meet you on the naval topic. PROJECT Borey is certainly good, but the main task of these boats is to ensure nuclear parity. This is a very serious trump card under the ice of northern latitudes and God forbid, if you have to use it, BUT for our SSBNs to feel comfortable, they need multi-purpose hunting submarines (in OHAYO, LOS ANGELES AND VIRGINIA), this is OUR project ASH. It's sad. that they are being built very slowly, and without multipurpose boats of the 4th generation AMERA will feel at home in OUR North. The number of ASH is also not admirable! drinks I do not know when the sharing of the last resources of the northern and southern latitudes will begin, but mine must be in a hurry!

          Mutually, +! Quite by chance, I wandered, honestly, just after discussing yesterday’s topic on the Caliber complex, I came across an article on the re-equipment of our boats with these missiles, well .... dragged on, and here this article went on to read, and here they touched Sharks .... which once saw live and very close ... stood at the ladder.
          And as far as amers are concerned (what and how much and where) I am in the know ... they taught well, though now there are big changes. But still I try to be in the know, but on our problems .... only the lazy, probably, don’t know ..!
          And all live only hope!
          And I completely agree with your conclusions ... you need to not just hurry .... but really, really hurry ....! +! drinks

    India also takes care of its submarine fleet using Russian shipyards.
    "The withdrawal of the Sindurakshak diesel-electric submarine from the slipway of the Indian Navy, which is being repaired and modernized at the shipyard of the Zvezdochka shipyard, will take place on June 23.
    The contract for the repair and modernization of the submarine was signed between OAO TsS Zvezdochka and the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of India on June 4, 2010.
    Upon completion of the work, Sindurakshak will receive a modern Club-S missile system and an Ushus sonar system. The submarine is modernizing its cooling and ventilation systems, installing new CCS-MK-II radio communications, Porpoise radar and other modernization work. "

        Eugene .... you're wrong ... +!

        Los Angeles-class nuclear submarines are a series of multipurpose nuclear submarines of the US Navy.

        A total of 62 boats of this type were built.

        The first nuclear submarine of the series went into operation on November 13, 1976, and the last (USS Cheyenne) on September 13, 1996.

        Ships were built by Newport News Shipbuilding and General Dynamics Electric Boat Division.

      Russian sniper, Greetings. The PIKE project, the most beautiful third-generation boats, and I have always felt pride and joy for these beauties, in terms of noise and automation, they are on an equal footing with the US LOSES, but we are talking about 4th-generation boats! And AMER has already stamped them in full. THAT is what the article about the last generation! drinks I don’t know for sure, but LOS ANGELES APPEARED somewhere in the mid-70s, and now they are being written off slowly.
