3Title:  Launch of the USS Skipjack Add
 Summary:  The launch of the USS Skipjack, lead boat in her class. The Skipjack incorporated a new hull design to improve her underwater speed, through a decrease in the length-to-beam ratio (making the boat both shorter and wider compared with nuclear submarines such as the Nautilus and Skate). The Skipjack was the first submarine powered by the S5W reactor plant, which became the Navy's submarine fleet reactor, used to drive both attack and ballistic missile submarines.
