[Majority of information from Wikipedia]

The Virginia-class, also known as the SSN-774 class, is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines in service with the United States Navy. These ships were originally planned to replace the older of the Los Angeles-class submarines, but instead replaced both the Seawolf-class attack submarines and Ohio-class ballistic and guided missile submarines.

Trivia

  • The Minnesota was the first of the Virginia-class to be posted, and was built by Marcboy99. Harmonmj13 then decided to build the rest of the class.
  • The original in-game designed in Harmon's game was deemed "too ugly", so he modified a Uboat hull for the Virginia.
    • The original design couldn't submerge as well.
  • On March 21, 2015, Harmon named SSN-799 as the USS Idaho, and five months later on August 23, the real-life U.S. Navy named SSN-799 as the Idaho. What a weird coincidence......
  • Harmon changed the names of several units to match the names of their real life counterparts.
  • There are ships that have the same names as Ohio-class submarines, which in RP, were scrapped after World War III in order to allow construction of more Virginias to continue.
  • IRL, none of the units in the class were built by Marinette Marine.
  • No Virginias have ever been lost in combat, giving the class the nickname "The Unsinkable 48."
