INFOGRAPHICS #29: The United States Navy submarines in 2018

Written by D-Mitch

Ohio class SSBN of the United States Navy
In the following infographic, The United States Navy submarines in 2018, I depict all the submarines that are currently in active service with the United States Navy (as of April 1, 2018). Currently, the United States Navy operates a massive amount of powerful nuclear-powered submarines, consisting of 14 Ohio class ballistic missile submarines (SSBN), four (4) Ohio class (modified) guided missile submarines (SSGN), three (3) Seawolf class nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSN) (including the modified USS Jimmy Carter SSN-23), 15 Virginia class SSN while one more, the USS Indiana SSN-789 is about to join the fleet, 22 Improved Los Angeles class SSN, and 12 Los Angeles class SSN. Of the Los Angeles class submarines, three (3) are about to decommissioned in the near future (USS Buffalo (SSN-715), USS Olympia (SSN-717) and USS Jacksonville (SSN-699)). There will be only one vessel from the Los Angeles class Flight I & II in active service for limited time, which is the USS Bremerton (SSN-698). This year, two more Virginia class SSN are scheduled to join the fleet, the USS South Dakota (SSN-790) and USS Delaware (SSN-791). These two vessels will be the last of the Block III while a new Block IV that will consist of ten (10) boats is under construction. It should be mentioned that all the boats are nuclear-powered.
