Groton, Conn. (June 4, 2004) - General Dynamics Electric Boat moves the third and final Seawolf-class nuclear attack submarine, Jimmy Carter (SSN 23) outdoors for the first time. The move of the 453-foot, 12,139-ton submarine precedes her christening June 5th by former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. Former President Jimmy Carter will also be in attendance and will participate in the ceremony. The new submarine honors the 39th president of the United States who is the only submarine-qualified man who went on to become the nation's chief executive. Differentiating the Jimmy Carter from all other undersea vessels is her Multi-Mission Platform (MMP), which includes a 100-foot hull extension that enhances payload capability, enabling it to accommodate advanced technology required to develop and test an entirely new generation of weapons, sensors and undersea vehicles.
