USS
CHEYENNE
SSN-773 submarine

USS Cheyenne SSN-773 is the last Los Angeles-class submarine.  Her keel was laid down on 6 July 1992 in Newport News, Virginia.  She was launched in April 1995 and commissioned in September 1996. 

USS Cheyenne was the first ship to launch Tomahawk missiles in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Cheyenne would go on to successfully launch her entire complement of Tomahawks, earning a "clean sweep" for combat actions in the final three months of a nine-month deployment. She was thus dubbed "First To Strike".  

USS Cheyenne was the final Los Angeles–class submarine built by Newport News Shipyards. Following the construction of the USS Cheyenne, Newport News began preparation for construction of the Virginia-class submarine.

USS Cheyenne is the primary subject of the book SSN by Tom Clancy, battling the People's Liberation Army Navy in a fictional war over the Spratly Islands.  She is also featured in the video game by Tom Clancy called SSN.  In the technothriller novel Quicksilver by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, USS Cheyenne was ordered to fire a Tomahawk TLAM Block Four cruise missile, under manual control of Weapons Officer Lt. Miken Marano, at the River Entrance of the Pentagon.  In To the Death by Patrick Robinson, the Cheyenne is tasked with shadowing an Iranian Kilo on a path through the Mediterranean Sea.
