The floating dry dock at Northrop Grumman Corporation in Newport News, Va., slowly fills up with water in order to launch the Virginia-class attack submarine Texas (SSN 775) on April 9, 2005.  Tugboats will later move the submarine to the shipyard's submarine pier for fitting out.  Texas will have improved stealth capabilities, sophisticated surveillance capabilities, and Special Warfare enhancements that will enable it to meet the Navy's multi-mission requirements.  DoD photo by Chris Oxley, U.S. Navy.  (Released)
