Steel Sign: 688i Los Angeles Class Improved

Item# LS2147-MK

Product Description

There were 62 boats built of the Los Angeles Class nuclear-powered, attack submarines. The last 23 boats in the class feature improvements such as better quieting and a more advanced combat system. They are known as "688i" boats. The most visible improvement is relocating the forward diving planes off the sail and onto the hull. This placement is better suited to under-ice operations. As of the date of release of this print, 42 Los Angeles Class submarines are still in active service. 20 have been retired as the new Seawolf, and Virginia Class submarines are added to the fleet.

688i Los Angeles Class Improved by Mark Karvon metal sign measures 12 inches by 18 inches and weighs in at just over 2 lb(s). We hand make all of our vintage metal signs in the USA using heavy gauge American steel. These metal prints are made to last and make great gifts for any occasion.We then perform a vintaging process by hand to give this tin sign a more retro and nostalgic look and feel. This metal sign is drilled and riveted for easy hanging.
