This model is very detailed, built near to scale and comes as shown with all textures and materials. It includes animateable propeller, opening launch tube hatches, hatches, retractable periscopes, antenna and handrails. The torpedo tube doors at the front of the ship can also be opened. For the re-designated SSGN boats, I have also installed 7 smaller launch tubes into each of the missile silos. Each of the 7 has its own sub hatch covering the interior launch tube.
The Ohio Class submarines were developed for the United States Navy near the end of the cold war. The original boats were originally equipped with Trident I missiles, later with trident II missiles. The original four boats including the USS Ohio, Michigan, Georgia and Florida were to be retired in 2002. But they were reassigned and refitted for non-nuclear guided missile launch platforms. 7 Tomahawk Cruise missiles were fitted into each of 22 launch tubes, and Navy Seal equipment and boats.
