Navy brings new $2.3 billion submarine to life in Norfolk, Va.
from The Virginian-Pilot
It's been months since shipbuilders tightened the final bolts and completed the last welds on the Navy's newest fast-attack submarine, the New Mexico. The Aztec-print curtains were hung on the sailors' racks and the sub's cooks trained in preparing authentic New Mexican cuisine. And last fall, the underwater war fighter passed its sea trials, a vigorous set of tests that cleared the way for the Navy to take ownership of the sub at the end of December.
