Nuclear-powered submarines. The ultimate in stealth, surprise and power. Northrop Grumman
is a vital part of the team building the Virginia class of submarines and recently delivered the
second ship of the class, USS Texas, to the Navy. Able to influence events in every domain of
warfare, it’s the first class of ships designed for the post-Cold War environment. USS Texas, and
all the submarines to follow, will ensure 21st century deep ocean and coastal water dominance.
