U.S. Navy Comments On USS Connecticut Submarine

Recommended Posts

The USS Connecticut (SSN 22)is the second of three nuclear-powered attack Seawolf-class submarines in the U.S. Navy and that makes this submarine class extremely rare and valuable as the Seawolf-class has more displacement and double the number of torpedo tubes (eight vs. four) than the newer Virginia-class nuclear attack submarines.  The USS Jimmy Carter (SSN 23) has a 100-foot (30 meter) Multi-Mission Platform hull insert to allow it to conduct special operations missions and is the only one of its kind in the Seawolf-class and in the U.S. Navy submarine fleet.

Naval News inquired about SSN 22’s damage sustained, the estimated cost of repairs, the estimated time to fully repair, the number of contractors involved, and if any other upgrades will be performed on SSN 22 in dry dock.
