Submarine "California" delivered ahead of schedule

Submarine "California" was delivered by NNS ahead of schedule

The delivery came more than eight and a half months early to the contract date and nearly five months faster than NNS' previous delivery of New Mexico.

Nuclear-powered attack submarine "California" recently returned to NNS following the completion of its third and final round of sea trials.
"California" is the eighth submarine in the Virginia class and the first delivered by NNS since the return of the Newport News Shipbuilding name. Newport News Shipbuilding is teamed with General Dynamics Electric Boat to build Virginia-class submarines. Virginia-class submarines are said to use advanced technologies to increase firepower, maneuverability and stealth. The appr. 115m long submarines are capable of submerged speeds of more than 25 knots and can stay submerged for up to three months at a time.

Huntington Ingalls Industries, USA, announced that its Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division delivered the Virginia-class submarine "California" (SSN781) to the U.S. Navy.
