INFO: The Los Angeles-class is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines that forms the backbone of the United States submarine fleet. With 42 submarines on active duty and 20 retired, the Los Angeles class is the most numerous nuclear-powered submarine class in the world.
- SSNs 688-718 - Original Los Angeles class
- SSNs 719-750 - Starting with SSN 719 and beyond, the last 31 hulls of the class have 12 vertical launch tubes for the Tomahawk cruise missile.
- SSNs 751-773 - The final 23 hulls (SSN 751 and later) referred to as "688I" (for improved) are quieter, incorporating an advanced BSY-1 sonar suite combat system and the ability to lay mines from their torpedo tubes. They are configured for under-ice operations in that their forward diving planes have been moved from the sail structure to the bow and the sail has been strengthened for breaking through ice.
