Los Angeles class submarine.
From Tri-ang Minic Ships.
Los Angeles Class SSN –The Los Angeles class SSNs with their improved quieting, increased operating speeds, sophisticated command and control systems, highly accurate sensor suites, and advanced weapons systems are among the most advanced submarines of their type in the world. Designed primarily for Carrier Battle Group (CVBG) escort duties they provided anti-submarine warfare (ASW) defense against Soviet submarines as well as the ability to attack capital ships in a Soviet surface action group (SAG).
While ASW is still their primary role in addition to their Mk 48 and ADCAP torpedoes the Los Angeles class SSNs are armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles for precision land attack missions. Their stealth, speed, mobility and endurance also makes them ideal for covert missions, such as deploying special forces, and the later ships, SSN 751 through SSN 773, are capable of laying mines from their torpedo tubes. In common with all submarines operated by the US Navy today the Los Angeles class are powered by a pressurized water reactor coupled to steam turbines which allows them to remain deployed and submerged for extended periods of time. They carry sufficient supplies to support a crew of over one hundred personnel for up to 90 days and are equipped with sophisticated atmosphere control systems to replenish oxygen and remove carbon dioxide as well as two distilling plants to convert sea water to fresh water for drinking, washing, and other uses.
