1Title:  USS Enterprise in 1967 Add
 Summary:  The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, USS Enterprise, in 1967. On 5 January 1968, the Enterprise was followed by a detected November-class Soviet submarine at a sustained speed of 31 knots. This incident, which illustrated the growing potential of Soviet nuclear-powered attack submarines, spurred the development and commissioning of a new class of high-speed attack submarines. The submarines in this class, starting with the USS Los Angeles (SSN-688), were powered by the S6G reactor plant.

2Title:  USS Sturgeon, lead submarine in the Sturgeon class Add
 Summary:  A topside bow view of the USS Sturgeon, lead boat in the Sturgeon class of attack submarines. Although thirty seven Sturgeon-class submarines were eventually built (with the Sturgeon commissioned in 1967), the Navy quickly shifted its focus to the development of a high-speed attack submarine (in order to match the observed speed of Soviet attack submarines) with the Los Angeles class.

3Title:  Launch of the USS Narwhal at Electric Boat Add
 Summary:  The launch of the USS Narwhal, which was powered by the S5G natural circulation reactor. The Narwhal was built concurrently with the design, construction, and operation of the S5G prototype reactor at the Idaho National Laboratory. She was commissioned in June of 1969. As historian Richard Duncan notes, "although the natural-circulation reactor was successful, the navy built no more ships of [the Narwhal] class" (27).
