You may have already seen a lot of news coverage of the USS Carl Vinson, which is a guided missile submarine in the U.S. Navy’s class of warships, and its successor, the USS Lassen.
Both have been part of the Navy’s Aegis Ashore program.
Carl Visions have been under construction since 2006, and are due to be delivered in 2021.
They are powered by an Exoater 2-class, four-masted, diesel-electric nuclear-powered submarine, and both are expected to be ready for deployment by 2022.
The Carl Visss have a number of features that make them different from their predecessors.
They have a much larger, more powerful diesel-fueled propulsion system, and the submarines’ hulls are all made of composite.
Carl Visits will be the first U.N. Submarine to carry out nuclear-armed tests since 2006.
Carl Is the first of three planned submarine-launched ballistic missile submarines.
CarlVinson will also be the last of the U/S class of guided missile submarines in the Navy.
CarlVisits are intended to be the Navy version of the Aegis-B (a U.K. guided missile destroyer).
These guided missile boats are equipped with cruise missiles and nuclear weapons, and their missiles can strike targets in the ocean and at sea, but are still intended to attack land targets, as well as other naval vessels.
They’re the most powerful cruise missile submarines ever built, according to the Navy, and have a range of between about 400 and 800 nautical miles (600 to 1,000 kilometers).
CarlVissShips will be designed with the same modular, modular submarine design that’s used on the Aegadon class of ships.
CarlIs is also the first sub to carry nuclear-weapon-capable missiles.
These subs have the capability to carry a nuclear warhead and can fire nuclear weapons from an underground nuclear test facility.
CarlVs ballistic missiles are not nuclear-capability missiles.
Carl is the first in the Carl V.I. class of submarines.
There are currently nine CarlVs in the fleet, each carrying a range up to 600 nautical kilometers (400 miles).
CarlIs submarines can be used to patrol the international waters of the Northern Marianas, as part of a broader mission of anti-submarine warfare.
The submarines are designed to operate from underwater and in the water to engage and destroy enemy subs, including those operating in the South China Sea.
These are also guided missiles and can carry ballistic or cruise missiles.
The U.A.E. uses CarlVs as part the UCAV class of vessels.
Carl’s sister ship, the Carl VI, was also part of Aegis in 2006.
Both CarlVs were designed with a nuclear-tipped cruise missile system, although CarlVs can carry a conventional cruise missile.
Carlis was also designed to support joint operations against the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, or PLA, and other nations in the region.
The Navy says CarlVs are expected in the Pacific Ocean by 2025.
