The U.S.S. Dallas (SSN 700) is the first United States Naval Ship to bear the name of the City of Dallas, Texas. Dallas is a nuclear powered fast attack submarine of the Los Angeles class built by Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Corporation.
After commissioning, Dallas was attached to Submarine Development Squadron Twelve, New London, Connecticut, where she was involved in many essential research and development projects. Since September 1988, Dallas has been a proud member of Submarine Squadron Two, New London, Connecticut. During her time with Squadron TWO, she completed the first ever Depot Modernization period and various overseas deployments.
Dallas recently completed an Engineered refueling Overhaul (ERO) in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. As part of the overhaul Dallas was fitted with a Dry-Deck Shelter configuration. This array of air, water and hydraulic systems allows Dallas to employ the latest submarine arsenal: The Seal Delivery Vehicle. A large “shelter” mated on the back of the ship provides special forces a highly mobile and virtually undetectable means of carrying out missions. Additionally, Dallas was configured to be a Mother Submarine for the Deep Submergence rescue Vehicle (DRSV). The DRSV mission was recently validated in the NATO exercise, Sorbet Royale, while on deployment.
Dallas has completed one deployment to the Indian Ocean, three Mediterranean deployments, and seven deployments to the North Atlantic. Dallas has received two Meritorious Unit Commendations, two Navy Unit Commendations and was awarded the Battle Efficiency "E" award in 1986, 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1999. Further recognition includes nomination for the 1993 and 1999 Battenburg Cup as the best all-around ship in the fleet and, most recently, the 1998 Supply Blue “E”, Deck Seamanship “D”, and 1999 Engineering “E” and Medical “M” awards.
