USS Texas (SSN 775)

The Virginia-class attack submarine USS Texas (SSN 775) is guided into port by local tugboats near Port Canaveral. The second boat in her class, Texas is able to attack targets ashore with highly accurate Tomahawk cruise missiles and conduct covert long-term surveillance of land areas, littoral waters or other naval forces. Other missions include anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare, special forces delivery and support, mine delivery and minefield mapping. Texas will be commissioned on Sept. 9, 2006 at the Port of Galveston piers in Galveston, Texas. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Roadell Hickman/RELEASED)
