Welcome back, USS Indiana

The U.S. Navy attack submarine USS Indiana (SSN 789) transited the Thames River inbound to the Naval Submarine Base in Groton on Wednesday.

The Indiana is the 16th boat in the Virginia class and sixth of the significantly redesigned Block III, including a revised bow and vertical launching system, or VLS, technology from the Ohio class of guided-missile submarines. It was returning from routine operations, according to Navy spokesman Lt. Seth Koenig.

Indiana, which was built at Huntington Ingalls Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia, was launched on June 9, 2017. It was christened on April  29, 2017, and commissioned on Sept. 29, 2018, at Port Canaveral, Florida.
