The first Los Angeles Class boats (SSN-688 to SSN-718) were designed as a follow-on to the Sturgeon Class and incorporated improved sound dampening and a larger propulsion plant than previous classes. The submarines are capable of undersea, surface and strike warfare including mining operations, special forces delivery, reconnaissance, carrier battle group escort and intelligence collection.

The next group of Los Angeles Class submarines (SSN-719 to SSN-725 and SSN-750) were upgraded by the addition of twelve vertical launch tubes (VSL) to fire Tomahawk missiles and can target 75% of the Earth’s land surface.

The last group of Los Angeles Class submarines are of the Los Angeles 688i (Improved) Class and incorporate an advanced BSY-1 sonar suite combat system, are quieter, have twelve VSL tubes, and can lay mines from torpedo tubes. Their hull numbers are SSN-751 to SSN-773. Additionally the forward diving planes were removed from the sail and placed at the bow; and the sail itself strengthened so they can come up thru polar ice.
