This photo depicts the USS Seawolf (SSN 575)—the second nuclear submarine created by Electric Boat Co. (General Dynamics). Its general design was modeled on the USS Nautilus, but the Seawolf propulsion system was more technically advanced, and it is the only submarine to be built with a liquid metal cooled nuclear reactor. The USS Seawolf was launched on July 21, 1955, and was decommissioned in 1987.
