If you do the math, the Ohio-class boats may be the most destructive weapon system created by humankind. Each of the 170-meter-long vessels can carry twenty-four Trident II submarine-launched ballistic-missiles (SLBMs) which can be fired from underwater to strike at targets more than seven thousand miles away depending on the load.
As a Trident II reenters the atmosphere at speeds of up to Mach 24, it splits into up to eight independent reentry vehicles, each with a 100- or 475-kiloton nuclear-warhead. In short, a full salvo from an Ohio-class submarine—which can be launched in less than one minute—could unleash up to 192 nuclear-warheads to wipe twenty-four cities off the map.
America’s Ohio-class ballistic-missile submarines are some of the quietest, stealthiest submarines in the world. The Ohio submarines represent America’s ace in the hole, megatons of nuclear-firepower quietly patrolling the world’s oceans, ensuring that any nuclear-attack on the United States will not go unpunished. In addition to the fourteen ballistic-missile submarines, four have been converted to missile carriers, capable of unleashing more than 150 conventionally armed cruise missiles against the most heavily defended of targets.

The Mob Reporter here with news of a coast guard vessel patrolling off the coast of Colombia on June 18, 2019. These semi-submersible narco vessel float mostly underwater to avoid detection and are hard to find and hard to capture. But these guys found a unique way to end the smuggler’s run. The sub’s crew was arrested and its contents seized. This rare, successful interdiction was part of a three Coast Guard vessel operation patrolling international waters off the coasts of Mexico, and Central and South America watching for contraband. They delivered the fruits of their labor — from 14 separate stops of narco-vessels — worth an estimated US$569 million at Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego on July 11, 2019. The guards were greeted and congratulated by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence after arriving back in port.

U.S. Coast Guard released intense footage of Cutter Munro crew members jumping on a self-propelled semi-submersible suspected drug smuggling vessel (SPSS) on June 18, 2019, carrying thousands of pounds of cocaine, while operating in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Munro offloaded more than 39,000 pounds of cocaine and 933 pounds of marijuana worth a combined estimated $569 million, which was seized in international waters in the Eastern Pacific Ocean from 14 separate drug smuggling vessel between May and June 2019.
Purpose-build smuggling vessels like SPSSs are designed to hold large quantities of contraband while evading detection by law enforcement authorities.

Virginia-class #Submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral missions. They were conceived as a less expensive alternative to the Seawolf-class attack submarines, designed during the Cold War era. They are replacing older Los Angeles-class submarines, many of which have already been decommissioned. Virginia-class submarines will be acquired through 2043, and are expected to remain in service past 2060. Based on recent updates to the designs, some of the Virginia-class submarines are expected to still be in service in 2070.

In the second part of my new series focusing on the submarine simulation, Fast Attack High Tech Warfare I play the second mission of the campaign. In it I captain the USS Pittsburgh and attempt to stop Iran from using a fast Guided Missile Frigate and a Missile Boat to blockade the Persian Gulf and the worlds oil supplies.
