PCU North Carolina (SSN-777), a Virginia-class submarine, will be the fifth ship of the United States Navy to be named for the 12th state.

The contract to build her was awarded to Northrop Grumman Newport News (then called Newport News Shipbuilding & Drydock Company) in Newport News, Virginia on 30 September 1998 and her keel was laid down on 22 May 2004. She was christened on 21 April 2007] sponsored by Linda Bowman, wife of Admiral Frank L. "Skip" Bowman, the former director of Naval Reactors. Commander Mark E. Davis, a native of upstate New York, will become the shipís first commanding officer and will lead a crew of approximately 134 officers and enlisted personnel.

The boat will have physical connections to previous North Carolinas. Sections of the teak decking from the battleship BB-55 are reused within the submarine, and several pieces from a silver serving set made for the armored cruiser ACR-12, then transferred through the state governor to the battleship will be used aboard SSN-777.
