The New Attack Submarine is designed for multi-mission operations and enhanced operational flexibility. SEAWOLF (SSN-21)-Class
quieting has been incorporated in a smaller hull while military performance has been maintained or improved.
Compared with the Seawolf, the Virginia Class SSN is slower, carries fewer weapons,
and is less capable in diving depth and arctic operations. On the other hand, the Virginia Class is expected to be as quiet as the Seawolf,
will incorporate a vertical launch system and have improved surveillance as well as special operations characteristics to enhance littoral warfare capability.
While the 688-I submarines are noisier than the improved Russian Akula class, the Seawolf is quieter than Akula and the upcoming Russian SSN-P-IX class.
The primary design driver for the Virginia Class SSN  is acoustic quietness equal to that of the Seawolf, even at the cost of reducing maximum top speed.
With a focus on the littoral battle-space, the Virginia Class Submarine has improved magnetic stealth,
sophisticated surveillance capabilities, and Special Warfare enhancements.

The Hobby Boss kit measures 12 1/2 inches long and is a perfect starter kit.
