Wood Photo Board: 688i Los Angeles Class Improved

Item# ls-wsigns-ls2147mk

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 is made from high quality 1/4" thick birch plywood with beveled and stained edges, featuring two wood support bars for hanging. Each sign is made in the USA and features a natural finish to showcase the beautiful wood grain beneath the image.
