In 2005, a U.S. Navy nuclear submarine ran aground on a mountain. No, it wasn’t out of the water—it hit an underground mountain, and nearly sank.
The USS San Francisco is an American nuclear powered submarine, one of the large Los Angeles-class submarines first laid down in 1972 and are among the U.S. Navy’s quietest submarines.

Warthog Defense members are sharing stories, insider tips, news from the front lines, and unique slices of military life including the tough stuff of war.
Warthog Defense provides headline news and technology updates since our community answers the call and makes news. We also cover the rest of the military experience —and in our military equipment guide we present what makes the military unique (and fun).
The submarine fleet community is a small but deadly force which delivers a major impact and provides unique capabilities to operational commanders around the world. As the maritime security environment has evolved into an asymmetrical warfighting scenario, the world faces new weapons systems that can threaten our joint forces at over-the-horizon ranges. These long range challenges underscore the demands on the submarine force to meet their growing and increasing scopes of responsibilities.
World War II submarine operations paved the way for most of today’s submarine missions. Today’s American submarine force is one of the most capable forces in the world and the history of U.S. Navy, comprising 53 fast attack submarines, 14 ballistic-missile submarines and four guided-missile submarines. The existing fleet of ballistic submarines currently carries 54 percent of our nation’s nuclear deterrent arsenal, and their replacements will carry an even greater percentage of strategic warheads.
There are three major types of submarines in the United States Navy: ballistic missile submarines, attack submarines, and cruise missile submarines. All submarines in the U.S. Navy are nuclear-powered. Ballistic missile submarines have a single strategic mission of carrying nuclear submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Attack submarines have several tactical missions, including sinking ships and subs, launching cruise missiles, and gathering intelligence.

US MILITARY TECHNOLOGY – The Los Angeles–class nucIear-attack submarines were the most successful American submarines of the Cold-Battle. The United States built sixty-two Los Angeles–class subs, more than any class except for the Gato class of World-War II. Fast, powerful and heavily armed, the submarines are slowly being replaced by Virginia-class attack boats.
The Los Angeles–class submarines, also known as the 688 class, were first designed in the early 1970s. The first ship, Los Angeles (SSN-688), was laid down in 1976. The submarines were produced at a ColdWar pace, with production averaging three to five submarines annually, significantly higher than the current pace of two Virginia-class submarines produced annually. The Navy sustained this rate of production until 1992. Over the twenty years the class was produced, various systems, including propulsion, bow and towed sonar, and even hull material were upgraded to reflect the latest technology.
