Launch Of Last Los Angeles Class Submarine

On April 2, the launch of the last Los Angeles class submarine took place at Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia. Congressman James B. Longley, Jr. of Maine, a member of the National Security Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, initiated the mechanical transfer system that transported the ship from its land-level construction site to the nearby James River. The USS Cheyenne (SSN-773) will float in drydock for a year of final outfitting before it is delivered to the Navy. Cheyenne is the last of 29 Los Angeles class submarines that Newport News has built, and one of the 53 nuclearpowered submarines to come from the Virginia yard.

Newport News Shipbuilding has built more than 700 ships, from tugboats and luxury yachts to aircraft carriers and submarines.
