This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile24778/Ohio-class-submarine.htm>Ohio class submarine</a></b><br><br>I'm thinking this is an Ohio class ballistic missile submarine. You can see some of the tubes that house the 24 Trident ballistic missiles. Cool huh?<br><br><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/790338sub.jpg>

Partially correct, yes. It's a former Ohio class boomer, but it's now an Ohio class cruise missile submarine. Based on the order the Ohio and Michigan were converted, it's pretty much a lock that it's the SSGN-726 Ohio undergoing final refit before returning to service after the conversion.

In addition to nearby Bangor where there are some visible, you will see some SSBN subs at a dock just a little to the east of this sub.
