Description: The SSN 688 Los Angeles-class attack submarines were designed to provide escort for carrier strike groups and hunter-killer capability against soviet ballistic submarines. The end of the Cold War has involved the nuclear attack submarines to counter Third World countries non-nuclear submarines that eventually could threaten sea line of communications. In addition to the attack and escort role, the Los Angeles-class submarines can assume intelligence collection, special operations forces delivery, and land-attack missions.

The USS Navy commissioned the SSN 688 USS Los Angeles nuclear-powered attack submarine in 1976. Between 1976 and 1985 the US Navy commissioned 31 boats. Currently the US Navy has decommissioned many of the first generation Los Angeles submarines. USS San Francisco (SSN 711) fast-attack submarine ran aground approximately at 350 miles south of Guam January 8, 2005. This grave incident meant the death of a crew member and the submarine's forward hull suffering severe damage.
