Nuclear submarines

Indonesia Matters 8 Aug 2009 “……Evidence of nuclear submarine activity is rife. Lately the Los Angeles-class nuclear fast-attack submarine USS Houston leaked its way from Japan to CNB leaving a visible nuclear trail detected by China and Russia.The LA Class submarines are: * designed to seek and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships; project power ashore with Tomahawk cruise missiles and Special Operation Forces * carry out Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance missions support Carrier and Expeditionary Strike Battle Groups; engage in mine warfare.These submarines are very fast- but can be dangerous to themselves. In Jan 11, 2005 LA class USS San Fransisco struck an “undersea mountain” at 33 knots on route to Brisbane from Guam, killing one sailor, wounding 11.Guam currently hosts: * USS City of Corpus Christi * USS San Fransisco * USS Houston * USS Buffalo
