It is 377 feet long, has a 34-foot beam, and can dive to depths greater than 800 feet.
The USS Oregon can operate at speeds in excess of 25 knots submerged.
Oregon and the other Virginia-class submarines will not only sustain, but exploit in undersea warfare.
Oregon will employ her stealth, her flexibility, her superior firepower and her endurance to travel silently throughout the world’s oceans undetected.
The submarine has a crew of approximately 136 Navy personnel.
The Virginia-class submarines can perform a wide gamut of missions for the Navy.
The Virginia-class is continuously upgraded and improved with new technologies.
The Virginia-class submarines are a potent, under-sea force to be reckoned with.
