First Virginia-Class Sub

      9/20/1999

The keel of Virginia (SSN-774), the first of the U.S. Navy's new class of nuclear attack submarine has been laid. The event was conducted at Electric Boat's Quonset Point facility.

Virginia is the lead ship in what will be called the Virginia Class submarine. A total of 30 ships are planned. Last year, Electric Boat and its teammate, Newport News Shipbuilding of Newport News, Va., began work on a $4.2 billion contract to build the first four ships of the class. Virginia Class submarines have been designed to affordably maintain the U.S. Navy's undersea superiority well into the 21st century and will represent the most flexible and technologically advanced submarine that has ever been put to sea.
