USS
JIMMY CARTER
SSN-23

USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23) is the third and last Seawolf-class submarine.  Carter is 100 feet longer than the other two ships of her class due to the insertion of a section known as the Multi-Mission Platform (MMP), which allows launch and recovery of ROVs and Navy SEAL forces. The MMP may also be used as an underwater splicing chamber for tapping of undersea fiber optic cables. 

Seawolf-class submarines are quieter than the previous Los Angeles class.  They are larger, faster, has twice as many torpedo tubes, and carry more weapons.  The Seawolf class were intended to combat the large numbers of advanced Soviet ballistic-missile submarines in deep ocean, such as the Typhoon class and the new Soviet Akula class attack submarines.  However, they also have extensive equipment for shallow-water operations, including a floodable silo capable of deploying eight combat swimmers and their equipment at once.  The boat can also carry up to 50 BGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missiles for attacking land and sea targets. 

 
 

 



This Jimmy Carter submarine model features:

 - Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 12 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Intentionally painted and "rust"  appearance to portray realism of a steel craft "living" in seawater.

44" l x 6.5 w x 11.5" t (including base's dimensions.)    SOLD
