USS Missouri Submarine Departs Pearl Harbor

This week, Missouri's namesake submarine set off from Pearl Harbor.  The U.S. Navy’s USS Missouri, a Virginia-class fast-attack submarine, departed the naval Shipyard at Hawaii for sea trials after completing a scheduled extended dry-docking. During the maintenance period the shipyard and crew performed tank cleaning and lining, hull preservation, propulsion and ship system repairs, and made improvements to mechanical systems and electrical. 

After the Missouri's sea trials are complete, the boat’s crew will work together to maintain readiness prior to completing their certification for overseas deployment.

The USS Missouri is the seventh Virginia-class attack submarine and the fifth vessel in the U.S. Navy to honor the “Show Me State.”
