 Summary:  The USS Los Angeles at sea in 1982. Planning for the Los Angeles-class submarines began in the mid-1960s; the sub class "would have the speed to escort fast surface-strike forces and convoys, protecting them against hostile submarines, and to seek out and destroy enemy missile submarines" (27). The Los Angeles, lead boat in her class, was commissioned in November 1976.
