The article focuses on the United States Navy's submarines. The fusion of nuclear power and the submarine resulted in innovations in submarine warfare. In the early years, submarines were used in the open-ocean hunter killer missions of the Cold War. At present, the modern attack submarine is being deployed in littoral areas where they will conduct joint operations and carry out special operations using Navy SEALs. The different types of submarines include the following: Virginia class, Los Angeles class and Seawolf class.
