Editors note: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the submarine. It is the bow section of the submarine Colorado (SSN 788), not the submarine South Dakota (SSN 790) as previously reported.
The bow section of the Virginia class attack submarine Colorado (SSN 788) is slowly rolled off the barge that transported it from Newport News Shipbuilding Monday, July 27, 2015, at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton. The Colorado will be the 15th in the Virginia class and 5th in the Block III construction featuring a re-designed bow section and will not acquire the navy designation USS until it is commissioned. The Colorado bow section arrived Friday night.
