With over 22 years of active service, you might think retirement is on the horizon... but you'd be wrong. If all goes according to plan, 2042 will be when the music finally stops for this asset of our Navy.

What is the USS Louisiana?
USS Louisiana (SSBN-743) is the 18th and last ship of the United States Navy's Ohio class of nuclear-powered fleet ballistic missile submarines. She carries Trident ballistic missiles and has been in commission since 1997. The Columbia-class submarine is an upcoming class of nuclear submarines designed to replace the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines in the United States Navy. The first submarine is scheduled to begin construction in 2021 and enter service in 2031, with the remaining Ohio-class subs being replaced at a rate of one per year until 2042.This message has been edited.
