The USS Comlumbia SSN-771

Home Port: Pearl Harbor Hawaii

Command:  CDR J. Patrick Friedman 

Attachment: The Columbia is currently attached to COMSUBPAC / Submarine Squadron Seven

Crew: 13 Officers, 116 Enlisted

Power Plant: S6G

Armament: Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles from VLS-tubes, four 533 mm torpedo Tubes for Mk-48 torpedoes, and the ability deploy Mk 67 mobile, or Mk 60 Captor mine

Overview: The Columbia was the last 688 class submarine to be built at Electric Boat Shipyard in Groton, It is also the last submarine in the history of the program to be launched by sliding down the building ways.

Columbia was built with the state-of-the art SEAWOLF technology. Application of this technology makes this ship the most modern submarine in the world. Both construction methods and computerization make Columbia stand out as a unique submarine platform among the 688 improved class. This submarine is one of the most versatile weapons platforms ever placed in the world's oceans, capable of long range Tomahawk strike operations, anti-submarine and surface shipping operations, surveillance and intelligence gathering, and special forces insertions.
