USS North Dakota Submarine Returns Home from First Deployment

Feb 08, 2019
BISMARCK, N.D. — The Navy's USS North Dakota submarine has returned from its first deployment.

The military announced that the attack sub had returned to its homeport in Groton, Connecticut, after serving a six-month security mission in the European area.

The $2.6 billion, 377-foot-long submarine is able to launch cruise missiles, deliver special forces and carry out surveillance. It's the first Navy vessel to carry the name North Dakota in a century. It was commissioned in 2014.
