1Title:  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.
