The USS Virginia is a nuclear powered cruise missile attack submarine, the lead ship of her class & serves with the U.S. Navy. She was launched on 16th August 2003.
The class of submarine is unique in that it features a photonis mast, a feature that has allowed designers to place the boats control room lower in a less constrained space that would be required by a standard optical tube periscope. The class also feature a pressure chamber allowing them to deploy SEAL's, divers or other special forces whilst being submerged under water.
