USS Vermont (SSN 792) is the U.S. Navy ship to bear the name Vermont, but first in a century. The first was one of nine 74-gun warships authorized by Congress in 1816. The second, Battleship No. 20, was commissioned in 1907 and first deployed in December of that year as part of the “Great White Fleet.” The battleship Vermont was decommissioned June 30, 1920.
USS Vermont was commissioned in 2020 as the first Block IV Virginia-class fast attack submarine in the U.S. Navy. Block IV Virginia-class submarines like Vermont incorporate design changes focused on reduced total ownership cost.
The submarine Vermont is 377 feet long and has a 34-foot beam, as well as a crew of more than 130 Navy personnel.
