PNS commander races dry docks upgrade for larger Virginia class subs

The U.S. Navy will spend more than $33 million improving the dry docks at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. (Kimberly Haas/Union Leader Correspondent)

The U.S. Navy is in the process of replacing the SSN 688 Los Angeles class subs with the SSN 774 Virginia class, and the goal of the shipyard's commander, Capt. David S. Hunt, is to put the shipyard on a trajectory to have all of its dry docks Virginia-class capable when the last 688 is decommissioned.
