About USS Nevada (SSBN 733)
USS Nevada (SSBN 733) is the eighth submarine of the Ohio class of ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs), and the fourth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name.
The keel of Nevada was laid on Aug. 8, 1983, and she was christened on Sept. 14, 1985 by Mrs. Carol Laxalt, wife of U.S. Sen. Paul Laxalt. Nevada was commissioned on Aug. 16, 1986 at Groton, Conn., with Capt. F.W. Rohm (Blue Crew) and Capt. William Stone (Gold Crew) in command.
Originally equipped with the Trident C4 ballistic missile, Nevada was later converted to carry the Trident II D5 missile.
Nevada completed a two-year engineered refueling overhaul at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility in 2010, followed by a successful Trident II D5 test launch in Mach 2011.
